Happy World Card Making Day – 1st October 2016


Happy World Card Making Day!

I hope you get some time in the craft room this weekend.

I have been busy, busy, busy of late, so I am taking a wee little break from craft this weekend and hope to read a book!!!

And maybe do a little online shopping….

Stampin’ Up! have 2 great specials running in October.

The first is for World Card Making Day and only runs til 5th October.



15-25% off a great list of products.  If any of these aren’t in your collection, you’ll want to stock up.

I’m doing an order on Wed afternoon – about 4pm.  Let me know if I can add anything for you – or partake in a little online shopping too!


The second special runs for all of October – buy 3 packets of DSP and get one free.  That’s $57.75 for 4 packs of paper (plus shipping).

Buy for yourself, do some early Christmas shopping or pair up with a friend and either choose 2 packs each or I’m happy to split the 4 packs you choose in half!


The fine print: the promotion only covers the DSP styles listed above.  It excludes Specialty Designer Series Paper and Designer Series Paper Stacks.

The last thing I’m going to share with you isn’t a special or promotion – just a year round good deal…

October is one of the best times to join Stampin’ Up!

As well as it getting all the usual perks –

  • $235 of products for $169 with free shipping
  • free business resources (ie, lots of catalogues) to get you started
  • being part of the great Paper Adventures team with lots of support,

… joining in October gives you until the end of March 2017 to make your first minimums.

This means you have 01{LOTS} of time to get started, find your feet and explore the new products.

So, if you (or anyone you know) thinks that Stampin’ Up! might be the flexible, no pressure & risk-free opportunity you’ve been looking for, then contact me for more information or jump right in and join here.  It’s as simple as selecting me as your team leader (upline), filling in your details and choosing your starter kit (completely customisable!).

You might be wondering what the catch is?  There really isn’t one.  It’s as simple as keeping up your minimum sales each 3 months (~ 6 months for the first cycle if you join in October).  If that doesn’t work out for you, then you simply stop being a demonstrator.  No penalties, no payback, no pressure & certainly no dramas.

Feel like you’re ready to start your Paper Adventures???  Join now!

I have a lovely growing team and you could be the next person who finds their happy place as a SU! demonstrator!!!

Oh, and one more thing…

I have a goal for the next 12 months.  It might not be achievable… it might not happen… but I’m putting it out there.  I am working towards it!

Every year Stampin’ Up! gives each demonstrator the chance to earn an amazing international holiday called the ‘Incentive Trip’.

For 2018, they are going to Alaska.  I would {LOVE} to go.  So, my goal is to get there.


How can you help me?  Sales, recruiting and other promotions throughout the year all add up towards the ‘points’ I need.

So, every order (including online ones so you can help me no matter where you live in Australia), holding a workshop, attending a class, becoming a new team member and achieveing success within my existing team all contribute towards my goal.

I’m going to work hard for this – and I’m taking you along for the ride with me!  In the words of Dora (and Rafael Nadal!) – V-A-M-O-S ! ! !

PS, if I earn the incentive trip I get to take a guest with me…. Should I take Mr Papercraft???

Large Letters – Using Vellum to line them up!

Hello!  One of the products I was most excited about in the new catalogue was the Large Letters framelits & coordinating stamp set.  They are bold and impressive!

They are also a big ticket item, which makes a dent in anyone’s craft budget.

So, what are the best ways to purchase this set?

Here’s 5 quick ideas on how to get the Large Letters bundle to you with a discount…
{note all dollar values are in Australian currencies}

  1. Buy as a bundle – saving yourself 10% (over $25)
  2. Add another item (or 2) to your order, bumping yourself up to $250 and receive $25+ in rewards
  3. Hold a workshop with your family & friends, share your love of Stampin’ Up! and if the sales from your workshop are over $750, you’ll have the opportunity to buy this bundle at half price! (saving you over $115)
  4. Buy the items separately during July & earn bonus $$$. Purchase the framelits during July for $172 and then use your $9 redemption in August to purchase the stamp set for $76.  You won’t save as much, but you will be able to spread the cost out!
  5. Join Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator for $169 and choose the Large Letters bundle as your kit content (saving you 18%) plus all your future purchases during your time as a demo will be at a minimum of 20% off retail!

As well as my savvy savings tips, I wanted to share with you how I (more or less) line up the framelits to use on a card front.

This is the card I made using the Serene Scenery DSP and Large Letters framelits.

Large Letters Framelits - how to line them up using vellum (plus 5 bonus tips on how to save money when buying the bundle!). Kelly Kent -

And this is how I did it…

  1. Using your grid paper, line up the framelits onto a piece of vellum that is about the same size as your project.

2. Stick these in place with post-it notes or repositionable tape (you’ll need to be super careful about this – you can see my ‘R’ slipped as I ran it through the Big Shot).

3. Run through your Big Shot to make your template.

4. Lay your vellum over your cardstock & line the letters up again – into the gaps you created as part of your template -and roll through.  Depending on how sensitive your magnetic plate is, you may like to use post-its or tape again to hold the letters in place.

5. Stick your cardstock to your card front & add in any of the little pieces needed to complete the letters (ie, the middles of the R & O)

Voila!  Your card is finished!  If you cut a template for a card you think you’ll use again, keep it somewhere safe and then next time you want to make a card, you can start from step 4.

This type of template is also perfect for lining up cut letters.

Using templates are one of my trade secrets on how to get a better finish on your cards.  And now you’re in on the secret too!

If you live in Australia and I can help you buy a Large Letters bundle using any of the 5 tips above, or you need some vellum to make templates, please get in touch with me or shop in my online store.
