Mr & Mrs Papercraft from mypapercraftjourney.com.

I know I always love seeing little sneak peaks into the lives of my favourite crafters – and thought you might like to see the people behind the blog!

This is Mr Papercraft & I at a wedding we attended on the weekend – a rare child free night out!

Mr P is very supportive of my Stampin’ Up! journey but I haven’t yet been able to convince him to join me as a supporting demonstrator.

Did you know that your spouse can join you in running your Stampin’ Up! business and be your supporting demonstrator.  Twice the fun!  The family that stamps together ….


Today is the last day you (and your spouse!!!) can join Stampin’ Up! and take advantage of the Sale-A-Bration joining special.

Pay only $169 for your starter kit and get $295 of products (the ones you choose, not the ones Stampin’ Up! thinks you need).  That’s $126 of free product plus free shipping!!!

You might like to consider joining to be a hobby demo that buys to boost your personal stash.  Or you’re a Stay-At-Home mum that needs something ‘just for you’.  Or you’d like to run a business with the support & backing of a quality international direct sales company.  Whatever the reason, we’d love to have you on board.

I’d love to welcome you to Team Papercraft.  Kelly x

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Baby Card & New Sale-A-Bration!

It’s all twinkle twinkle little stars for this cute little baby card using the Sweet L’il Things DSP and Made With Love stamp set.

With so many wonderful new products in the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues to choose from, it’s so easy to forget about the ones we already have!

Hello Baby Twinkle Twinkle Little Star card using Sweet Li'l Things DSP and Made with Love Stamp Set. Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.au

I love the colours of this card – using Hello Honey as the base and a touch of blue for the centrepiece.  You can’t go wrong with a Stampin’ Up! DSP colour palette!

Make this card at home…

Are you enjoying Sale-A-Bration so far?  It’s super awesome getting free gifts every time you spend $90 on your favourite products.

Have you seen the 3 new Sale-A-Bration choices that Stampin’ Up! released today – check them out below!  Metallic Glitter Tape, Party Pants stamp set & Pedal Pusher stamp set – aren’t they fabulous???

Do you *need* some new or ‘old’ Stampin’ Up! products?  I’ll be placing an order tonight to stock up on basics and get my hands on some new SAB – let me know if I can add anything for you.

Sale-A-Bration runs until 31st March with a free gift for every $90 you spend.  Kelly x

Going, going, gone – 2014 Retiring Lists


Every year Stampin’ Up! says goodbye to some of its product line.  Sometimes they are favourites you have in your collection and sometimes you haven’t gotten around to adding them.  As always, there are some lovely stamps and accessories being retired.  I am really going to miss the Dress Up framelits!  Quite a few of the retiring products are discounted, so it’s a great time to get Stampin’ Up! at bargain prices.

Find the list of retiring stamps here – 2014 Retiring Stamps.

Find the list of retiring accessories here – 2014 Retiring Accessories.

Everything on the list is first come, first served.  They are going, going, gone!  Order online or by contacting me.  The online hostess code is: 2EKWQNRH .  Happy shopping!  I plan to tempt you during June with photos of cards using retiring products!  And stay tuned for some new catalogue products towards the end of the month.  It’s going to be a big one!  Kelly x

Stampin’ Up! have ramped up this action this week – check out these weekly deals!  My pick of the bunch would have to be the Dress Up Framelits – so versatile.  This is a punch art Tinkerbell card I made using the one of the dress framelits (amongst other SU! goodies).


If you’d like to order any of the products from the weekly deals, I’ll be placing a workshop order tonight, so let me know if you’d like to add to it.  Or, shop in the online store using the hostess code – 7VD7BCP9  – and receive a free gift from me.  You can add any Stampin’ Up! products to an order, so be sure to have a look through the Clearance Rack as well – there are lots of bargains hiding there with up to 80% off.

The Weekly Deals will only be available until 15th April.  On 16th, Stampin’ Up! will release a new weekly deal.  Happy shopping!  Kelly x
