This past week has been a whirlwind of announcements from Stampin' Up! - exciting times, but I'm finding it a little hard to keep up!   Bear with me - this post is a bit information- and picture-heavy!

We now have My Digital Studio (MDS), which is Stampin' Up!'s exclusive digital program for creating scrapbook pages, cards, invitations, tags, and anything else you can think of creating digitally!  If you'd like to try this exciting program for free (no strings attached, and you can play with it for 30 days!), just click on the MDS icon in my blog side bar.  If you decide you'd like the full version, with loads of Stampin' Up! paper patterns, stamp images, embellishments and those exclusive colours we all love, you can purchase the program for only $24.95 from my online store.  You can get more information about MDS by clicking on the My Digital Studio graphic above.


As I've just alluded to, Stampin' Up! has introduced Online Ordering to the Australian and New Zealand markets.  Super-exciting, folks .... imagine being able to shop in your PJs at any time of the night or day!  Of course I can still take orders for Stampin' Up! products as I always have, but if you prefer the convenience of shopping online, just click on the shopping basket icon in my blog side bar, or click on this link.


The Petite Curly Label punch, which was available during Sale-A-Bration, has now been made available to purchase!  Here's a flyer with the details:

This cute punch co-ordinates with the "Ciao, Baby" stamp set in the current Seasonal Catalogue.


Stampin' Up! has announced, effective immediately, that due to quality issues with the supplier, they are discontinuing Watercolor Wonder Crayons and Watercolour Pencils.

This means that, even though these items appear in our catalogue that is current until 30th June, they are available only until sold out.
Watercolor Wonder Crayons are available in 4 colour collections (Subtles, Regals, Brights and Neutrals), and are $29.95 per tin.  They are lovely to use with Blender Pens, or Aquapainters.
Watercolor Pencils (24 colours) are $34.95.
These items can be found on p. 157 of the Annual Catalogue.  Don't miss out - if you "need" these items, be sure to order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!
Now for some really big, exciting, news ..... Stampin' Up! has announced a
 Colour Refresh!!  Stampin' Up! prides itself on staying "on trend" and always offering a great range of colours, so we're in for a bit of a change.  The diagram below shows the colours that will make up the core range from 1st July, when our new Annual Catalogue "goes live".
We're getting 10 new colours in our core range - all but one are returning "in colors", and some we've never had in Australia.  The tenth colour is a lovely new light grey, called Smoky Slate.
The colour collections are being switched around a little.  At the bottom of each column is listed the colours that will be discontinued from Stampin' Up!'s core range.  Even though the Colour Refresh officially takes effect on 1st July, the discontinuing colours are available only while stocks last.
Make sure you stock up on cardstock, inks and (where available) ribbons in these colours, if you simply can't do without them! :
Regal Rose
Pretty In Pink
Bashful Blue
Certainly Celery
Baja Breeze
Riding Hood Red
Bravo Burgundy
Not Quite Navy
More Mustard
River Rock
I think that about sums up all I need to tell you for now!  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
