There’s lots to love about the new catalogue, but one of the things I was most excited about was 6 new Stampin’ Blends colours!!!

I am loving colouring stamped images with these easy to use alcohol markers.

As your collection of Blends grows, there’s lots of ways to store your Stampin’ Blends.  My favourite is in a clear case (click here to buy online).

Calling All Direct Sales Superstars…

We all know someone in direct sales, and many of us are customers of this style of home based business.  It’s a wonderful way to shop – and the personal touch of your own consultant is the icing on this shopping experience.

Perhaps, you are the superstar of your own direct sales business?  Do you share your love of candles, soap, stamps, oils, make up, skincare with your family, friends & customers?

There’s lots of us out there – and often what sets us apart from the other consultants of the same type of product, is our customer service.  Our willingness to go the extra mile for our customers, the expert knowledge we have and the presentation of our business.

A thank you card with an order, beautifully packaged samples, a welcome the team, congratulations on a promotion or sending birthday wishes to a customer or team member – these are all special touches that are noticed and appreciated by our customers & team.

It can be costly and not always easy to find options to fit all these needs. But not anymore!

I’m so excited to share this all-inclusive kit with you that Stampin’ Up! have released in their 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue – the Darling Label Punch Box.

You get a stamp set that covers all your needs – birthday, thank you, hello (welcome), best wishes, thinking of you & congratulations.  An easy to use punch that fits all 6 stamps, together with a block & two coloured inks for stamping.  It comes in a gorgeous tin – which is perfect for storing your supplies or using it for gift packaging once you’ve unpacked your kit.

Darling Label Kit | kelly kent

The Darling Label All-Inclusive Punch Box is $78. You don’t need much else to be on your way to amazing packaging or super cute cards.

Paper Adventures Winter Retreat

Winter has hit with a vengence in south west WA – it’s wet, it’s cold and it’s windy!!!

There have been a few glimpses of sunshine before the regular winter programming returns.

Luckily, for us, stamping is an indoor sport – perfect for all weather.  Too hot – craft in the air-con, too cold – craft with the heater on!!!

Last year we started an annual Paper Adventures Retreat Day, hosted by one of our teamies who has a gorgeous residence in the Perth Hills.  2017 saw us travel up for a beautiful spring day.

2018’s planning involved a wet weather winter trek!!!  We arrived safely and had a wonderful day of crafting – and even managed to sneak some sunshine for a team photo.

Paper Adventures Team Retreat 2018 | kelly kent

Retreat days are all about the crafting and eating!!!

The eating was a shared morning tea. lunch & afternoon tea with everyone contributing something delicious for the day.  Our hostess kept us well hydrated with copious cups of tea and fabulous coffee.

The crafting was make & take style with each of us bringing a project in a box.  You make the sample, cut up the kits and put all the materials in a box.  The boxes are passed around and each crafter makes & takes home one of each design.  It needed to be easy enough to make with minimal instruction within a 30 minute time frame.

I wanted to share the new embossing mat with the team, so this was my card for them to make…

Embossing Mat | kelly kent

The butterfly is from the new Sprintime Impressions Thinlits but instead of cutting it, we layered it with the Embossing Mat to leave the outline on the cardstock.

Embossing Mat | kelly kent

Other supplies in this card are Nature’s Poem DSP, Stitched Label & Stitched Shapes Framelits and Hanging Garden stamp set.

Because each person created with a different box and created a different card in each time slot, I offered an alternative layout using the same pieces –

Embossing Mat | kelly kent

This is always a fun way to create a ‘different’ card but not having to completely design.  Design & colour choices are always the most complex part of creating cards.

Embossing Mat | kelly kent

Thanks to our Paper Adventures team for being wonderful – they really are the loveliest people I know!!!

Product List

2018-2019 Annual Catalogue & Product Shares

One the most exciting days on the Stampin’ Up! calendar is here!!!  From today, the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue is available for you to view & shop!!!

Click here to download the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue.

Click here to browse all the products in the online store.

Of course, your wishlist will be long and interesting!!!  There’s so much to love in the new catalogue!

Let me help you budget for some of those items by offering two options for DSP Shares and a Ribbon Share.

What is a “Share”?

A share is a select range of products from the catalogue broken into smaller quantities so that you can order more of your favourites.  Smaller quantities means a smaller cost.  Think of it as a try before you buy option – or a get it all now option.  Buy{ALL} the new DSP, Color Collection DSP and/or Ribbon in a ‘sampler’ and then purchase full packs or reels of your favourites.

What makes up a “Share”?

I’ve calculated what I need for each share, how many people the share will include and the total cost.  I collect orders until I fill the share and then I order all the materials (paper or ribbon) required for the share.  Once they arrive, I cut the paper or ribbon and package for delivery or pickup.  There’s three options to choose from.

What 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue Shares are available?

Prices are for local pick up – to add delivery, see section below on getting your order.
