Merry Christmas 2018 plus 2019 DSP

Merry Christmas!  It’s been a while between posts – but the stamps, inks and paper have still been working hard here at Papercraft HQ this festive season.  I’ve just not had that extra bit of spare time to share those creations with you!  To say it was busy was an understatement.  I sent significantly less Christmas cards than usual!!!  I’m playing catch up this week – happy mail is always a lovely surprise, even if it’s late.

Knowing that the Christmas crazy would settle down eventually, I did take some photos along the way – today’s share is the thank you card I made for our postie who went above and beyond for us.  Postmen (and post-ladies) in Australia deliver mail on a motorbike, so this stamp was perfect!

It mixes the fabulous “Australian” Christmas stamp set So Santa and a new DSP (Classic Garage) available in Occasions catalogue – which starts 3rd January 2019.  The ‘thank you’ is from the Takeout Treats stamp set.  Both stamp sets are retiring on 2nd Jan 2019, but still available to purchase on any order until then (unless sold out).  I know So Santa is going to be a keeper for me – it’s so rare to get summery Christmas sets!  See the product table at the end of this post for a list of all the products I’ve used to make this card.

Playing with my new DSP reminded me of how special it is to own all the DSP.

So, top of my list this week was to get the details finalised for the newest offering of DSP – including the Classic Garage.  A DSP share really the best way to own all the DSP in a totally affordable way!

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.  See and feel the DSP in person, and then order full packs of your favourites.  Sometimes a paper doesn’t become a favourite until it’s in your craft stash!

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 meticulously cut the DSP and carefully package it for delivery or pickup.

When do you get your items?

Items will generally be ready to post within 2 weeks of receiving your order.  In the unlikely event I am unable to complete the numbers required for a share, I will refund your purchase via PayPal.  If you are local & picking up, I will contact you to arrange a pick up date.  If you have opted for postage, I will contact you with a tracking number once your parcel is posted.


My plan is to get beautiful new paper out to as many craft rooms in Australia as possible.  I love DSP and want to share the beautiful new patterns with you!

It’s How Many Sleeps Til Christmas??? Holiday Catalogue has arrived!

After much patience, lots of checking on my Australia Post app (I’m not sure if tracked delivery is a blessing or a curse) and a little bit of impatience, my Holiday Catalogue pre-order finally arrived!

Stampin’ Up! continues to out-do themselves with every new catalogue and  I’m sure the warehouse got very busy all of a sudden!!!

The cute little bookmarks you see above were made using the Cookie Cutter stamp set & punch. This was the very first play I had after unpacking my box!  They were inspired by Terina Sprague.  The bookmarks will be accompanying the catalogues of some special people!


My next project was the make & take for my team meeting last night.  Thank goodness my box arrived just in time!

Spinning Santa

image

This one has been ‘spinning around’ as an idea in my head for a while now.  I finally got a chance to sit down and give it a go and it turned out – yay!

I wanted Santa (in some form) to be suspended in the middle of the Circle Card and there he is!  3D but not!  He’s quite easy – have a go.  Kelly x
