Melbourne Regional Training

Filed under: Stampin' Up! — maggie mathern @ 6:19 pm

One of the many advantages of belonging to the Stampin’ Up!® family, is that you get to attend great events such as Convention and Regional Training days. Today was Victoria’s training day. It was held at the Convention Centre in Melbourne.

It is a time to learn new things, both artistically and business-wise, but also to enjoy the interaction with other demos. A large part of this is doing swaps with others for new ideas.

I will give a sneak peek later. I used a set from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalogue which will be available for sale from 01 December until March 30 2008!!! Some beautiful sets and accessories.

Spring Mini Catalogue Retires Soon

Filed under: Scrapbooking, Stamping — maggie mathern @ 12:39 pm

I just wanted to remind you all that this catalogue will be finishing on 30 November 2007. If you wish to purchase something from this catalogue please keep this date in mind. I would hate to see you miss out on getting a stamp set or accessories that you love. Some of the items in the catalogue may make it into the new IB&C 2008-2009, but as a demonstrator, I have no idea which they may be.

You can view the Spring Mini Catalogue here.

If you wish to make a purchase, I can be contacted on 0419 584 211 or email I remind you I am available for stamping/scrapping workshops and classes in the Geelong, Surfcoast and surrounding areas.

All In The Family Promotion

All In The Family

Sadly, the Australian General Manager, Dave Abbott, recently passed away from a rare blood disease, at the age of 41, leaving behind his wife and 3 young children. Stampin’ Up! being the incredible company they are, have just released the stamp set called ‘All In The Family’, in Australia, in order to raise money for Dave’s family. 100% of the proceeds of the sale of this stamp set worldwide will be donated to Dave’s young family – not just the profits but 100% of the sale price worldwide… now that’s a company with heart!

I would like as many of you as possible to be able to buy this set, so I will be passing my Demonstrator discount on to you. I won’t make any money from it, but hopefully I can help raise some money for Dave’s family. I am offering it to you at 20% off! So, instead of $73.95, you’ll pay only $59.15 (plus shipping and handling)


You can see the stamp set, and a picture of Dave and his family on the picture above. The All in the Family stamp set will appear in the Idea Book & Catalogue 2008-2009 (which will be released in April), but has been pre-released to raise money for the Abbott family. The set will not be available again after 30 November until 1 April.


This Promotion runs from the 1st November until the 30th November 2007.


Let me know if you’d like to buy a very versatile stamp set, and help out a family in need at the same time.
