Share What You Love Suite! Early Release!

Recently I joined with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators at our OnStage Event in Sydney where we got share what we love and to inspire creativity and to celebrate 30 years of Stampin' Up!

As this is the celebration of 30 years for Stampin' Up! they have brought out a beautiful suite specifically to share what we love in the upcoming catalogue, however, who can wait until 1 June when the new catalogue is released, so it will be available from 1 May as an early release!

I love sharing hand-made cards and paper-crafting gifts with my friends and family and sharing my memories with those I love through my scrapbooking and Memories & More albums. Now is the time to think about how you can share what you love with others. Sharing what you love with others makes a difference in their lives, whether it be to celebrate with them, letting them know you care or just that you are thinking of them.

Beginning 1 May, you will have the opportunity to purchase new products from the 30th Annual Catalogue, from the Share What You Love Suite of products as an early release until 31 May. These new products, during the early release period, will be available to purchase in bundles for those who are just starting out as stampers right through to those stampers who just gotta have it all!

Each bundles comes with a 'free' item or two or more! Plus, there is one item that won't be available in the new catalogue and is ONLY AVAILABLE during this pre-release period in the 'Gotta Have It All' bundle and that is an exclusive “Statement of My Heart” stamp!

2018 Colour Revamp!

One of the exciting things to come out of OnStage last weekend was the 2018 Colour Revamp! Stampin' Up! make a point of keeping their colours fresh and on trend and therefore, updating our colour spectrum's to be on trend, which is a basis for this revamp. 

This means our colours will be updated in the soon to be released new 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue. There have been no changes to the core colour offering since 2013 and SU! plan to update colours every three to five years....so here it is!

The colour revamp in a nutshell:
  • keeping 27 of the existing core colours
  • 13 core colours are going away
  • adding 10 new core colours
  • adding 6 returning In Colors that now will be core colours (colours offered in the past that will now be available again)
Here are the four new colour collections:

The 13 colours that are retiring, get your supplies now before they are gone!, are:

We will still have our 10 In Colors, with five new ones being added with this new AC and they are:

Some basics to note:
  • Basic Black, White & Very Vanilla have been moved out of the Neutrals collection and into a Basics range of their own.
  • The Neutrals Collection now has some base colours added - Merry Merlot, Gray Granite & Mossy Meadow.
  • Some colours have moved around into different collections from before.
  • You'll notice there's some returning In Colors! Mossy Meadow, Blackberry Bliss, Poppy Parade and Flirty Flamingo - great to have some of our favourites back!
  • Brights have some new colours - Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape. Don't you love the delicious names!
  • Subtles also have some new colours - Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather.
  • Shaded Spruce is a new colour in the Regals Collection.

Stampin' Up! also took advantage of the new colour revamp to update our ink pad cases. They're now even easier to open, made to be stackable, and have stickers for the inside so you can be sure you've got the right ink colour when you stamp. The print is bigger, the colour label is larger, and the new lids fit even more snugly, for less ink evaporation over time.

The new ink pads still have the pad upside down when closed to bring the ink to the surface of the pad to always keep it moist and ready to ink up your stamps! They also still fit in the current Stamp Caddy, although not as snugly, and you will need to just turn it more gently so they don't spin out!

When can you get to order these new colours? These new colours will be available from 1 June 2018 when the new Annual Catalogue becomes available to customers. However, there will be a sneak peak release of some new products in May and I will more details of that soon. In the meantime, check out the Retiring Lists and Products, and get your supplies in quick of any of the retiring inkpads, refills, cardstock etc.

Last Chance Products! Retiring List is Here!

It's that time of year again - the Retiring List is out for both the Annual and the Occasions Catalogues! It is your last chance to get some of these retiring items and they are only available while stocks last!

Stock up NOW!...Cardstock, Ink Pads, Ink Refills, Markers,

Ribbon and Embellishments!

Don't wait until the last minute to order the

Retiring In-Colors!

These products are ALWAYS the first to go!

A few things to note:

1. The ink pad cases are changing (improving).  The ink pads on the retiring lists that have that funny symbol next to them indicate the actual colour is staying, but the current ink pad case design will be changing.

2. Quite a few of our core colours ARE discontinuing.  To make it easier, those are: Chocolate Chip, Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky. If these are colours you love or already have the ink pad, I strongly suggest you pick up some cardstock and/or the ink refill while you can! These will go quickly and most likely first!

3. If you own the Large Letters Dies, they are continuing, but the Large Numbers are not. If you want the matching numbers for your letters, please consider ordering them now.

4. The Archival Black and Archival Gray inks are discontinuing.

5. The 12x12 Basic Black is discontinuing and so I suggest you stock up if you use the 12x12 size, particularly those who scrapbook.

6.  Some bundles are carrying on into the new Annual Catalogue individually, but NOT as a bundle (10% discount), so if those items were on your wish list, it might be smart to get them while you can at a better price.

Tassie Stampin' Up! Demos Blog Hop

Hi there and welcome to the very first blog hop for Tassie Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators. Our theme is Autumn/Easter and we're showcasing some paper craft projects to highlight our beautiful island state of Tasmania.

You may have come here from the talented Kim Oliver's blog, or if not, feel free to start hopping around our blog hop from my page checking out the talent of these Tassie demos' and showcasing our beautiful Tasmania.

When I joined SU! over 10 years ago we had some company organised Regional events here in Tasmania (now OnStage Events are held twice a year on the mainland) and a few motivated demos coordinated a gathering or two but these too fell away. Now this Facebook Group has been set up (by Bronwyn Eastley) to connect us with other local demonstrators with the idea of organising get togethers, retreats etc. As a few of us miss the days when SU! held Regionals in Tasmania and it isn't always viable for everyone to get to OnStage Events on the mainland or overseas.

For this blog hop I went with the Autumn theme and had fun inking up a few different stamp sets, one all time favourite 'Lovely As A Tree' (AC p137 - been around since I started!) , plus, a couple of more current stamp sets 'Colorful Seasons' (AC p147) and 'Waterfront' (OC p48).

The autumn leaves in this card are stamped using Crushed Curry and rock 'n' rolling the stamp edges in Cajun Craze. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the leaf veins over the top in Cajun Craze.

Tip: while experimenting I found it better, softer image, to stamp the leaf veins in Cajun Craze first and then stamp the Crushed Curry rolled in Cajun Craze leaf on the top (see the leaf on top above the greeting). This gave a softer vein image to the leaf.

We have lots of beautiful places in Tasmania to visit that never cease to provide inspiration or relaxation. A couple of my favourite places to visit with our grandson has been the Botanical Gardens in Hobart and Richmond.

Here Theodore (Teddy or Theo for short) had fun playing with Pop amongst the leaves and trees in the Botanical Gardens in 2017, how time flies, and of course it also lead to me capturing these in our Memories & More pocket pages - you can see my previous blog post about this time by clicking here.


The next card I made was using the long time favourite Lovely As A Tree stamp set. I never thought I could do much with this stamp set 10+ years ago when I saw it in the catalogue, but now, I will never sell it as there is so much versatility with this stamp set from backgrounds, different techniques, sympathy cards to masculine cards...a great investment stamp set!

The last card that I made with the Autumn theme was with our Waterfront stamp set, again another versatile set, that makes a wide variety of landscape and picturesque scenes.

If you notice in the background of my card photos you will see a snippet of the beautiful beach that I look out from my craft room window. I am so blessed to live in this beautiful state of Tasmania and to have such a lovely spot to call home at Dodges Ferry which is only a short drive from the beautiful and historic township of Richmond where I took the photo below.

I was even brave enough to share of photo of this historic iconic bridge at Richmond with me in it!!

I hope you enjoy the inspiration of projects that we have for you and for seeing a bit of our beautiful Tasmania where we live and in what we share.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out our blog hop, next stop is the talented Kayla MacAulay (who is also one of Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team members for this year), so go check out her lovely projects.
