With the release of the NEW 2010/ 2011 Catalogue comes the NEW Colour Renovation.  The New catalogue contains some new regular colours as well as new “In COLOURS”.  I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new cardstock and inkpads and was delighted to stumble across the following “tool” on the Stampin’ Up! Website.  Not only is there the opportunity to VIEW the new colours you can have a ‘play’ with the colour combinations- by clicking on the colours and applying them to the sample cards…  Click on the following link to see what I mean…..  It is not quite as fun as making a card or scrapbook in real life but it’s LOTS of fun and I will probably have to continue to play with the colour combinations on this ‘tool’ while I wait for my parcel to arrive!

With the new 2010-2011 Stampin’ Up Catalogue just around the corner it is time to say good-bye to some items that will not be available in the NEW catalogue.  Today Stampin’ Up released their last chance list.  This will be your last chance to order items from this list.  Some items have even been discounted by up to 50% and I’m sure people will snap those items up quickly.

To view the list of items please go to…..

and please be sure to let me know what you would like to order.

Please don’t forget that stocks are low on some items and they may sell out quickly.  I will be updating my blog with items that have sold out.



0419 947 047

(08) 90917655



As the end of the Main Catalogue fast approaches we are starting to receive notifications that some items are at low levels.  A few items have even completely sold out.  Please don’t be disappointed.  If there are items you would like to order from either the main catalogue or the Mini Catalogue then please get in touch with me to place your orders.  Don’t forget that I can have the items delivered to you anywhere in Australia.    Both of the catalogues finish at the end of next month but there is no guarantee that the products will sell out before then.

The items I would be paying close attention to include….. re-inkers and cardstock that will be retiring at the end of August.  If you own ink pads in any of the retiring colours I would suggest ordering the reinkers in those colours to get longevity out of your inkpads.  After the end of August you won’t be able to order re-inkers in those colours.  If you would like to order the co-ordinating cardstock or patterned paper packs that contain those colours please get in quick.  Please be sure to check the following image to see if there is anything you would like to stock up on before it is gone forever!



With the risk of items selling out before the catalogue officially ends there is also the possibility that items in my scrapbooking kit will also sell out before the end of August.  If you were considering ordering this kit complete with full photo instructions then please contact me to place your order OR you can order via the paypal link which you will find here…. http://www.creationsbymiriam.com/?p=1153



The Promotion where you can receive 20% off the starter Kit finishes at the end of this month! If you are considering joining my team as a demonstator then you have less than 3 weeks to take advantage of the special price. Click here for more info…..  http://www.creationsbymiriam.com/?p=1303 You can sign up online through my demonstrator website.  Please let me know if you have any queries! I’d love to have you as part of my team- whether you intend on operating a business or simply want to take advantage of the discount.

**Retiring stamp sets!

One of the important things to note is that three of the stamp sets on the list will definitely be retiring at the end of August so I would strongly suggest you consider ordering if they happen to be stamp sets on your wish list.

Cottage Garden is one of the stamp sets on the list and you can find it in the Autumn/ Winter Catalogue.  It is designed to co-ordinate perfectly with the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper.  If you scroll back a few blog entries you will also see a mini scrapbook page that I created for Convention using these supplies

I have used two images from the COTTAGE GARDEN stamp set on my card below.  In this case I didn’t use the two step stamping technique.  I used the outline flower on the background of the card and then used the solid image in the centre of the squares.  If using the two step stamping technique instead I may have chosen to stamp the solid image in a lighter colour and then added the outline image directly over the top.  It’s great to have options- isn’t it!?

Wow! This weeks “Deal of the week” is all about stamp sets.  You can receive the following stamp sets at a huge discount.  The offer is valid for one week only so please be sure to contact me with your orders and payment BEFORE Tuesday 22nd June!

Well I’m back from Convention…. I haven’t been away all this time of course- Just limited computer time since my return…..but I know you don’t want to hear any excuses about how busy I’ve been- You just want to hear about Convention- don’t you?

For those who are unaware- the Stampin’ Up! Convention is a once a year gathering of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.  There are social and training opportunities as well as an awards night.  This year I believe there were about 500 demonstrators in attendance for the Convention in Sydney.

Before Convention began I had a full day in Sydney for a bit of much- needed rest and relaxation.  I had a very cruisy day with my upline, Claire Daly and a late lunch with some other members of the team. 

On the Thursday night before Convention officially commenced there was a special Reception for Managers (and above)  It was nice to meet with the US and Australian staff in an intimate setting and mingle with other Stampin’ Up demonstrators.  As a special gift we were greeted with the most enormous mugs.  They were filled with a big scoop of melted chocolate and frothy milk- the most delicious hot chocolate! Just divine!  These mugs were SO huge that rather than being concerned about a ‘milk moustache’ I was concerned about getting milk froth on my forehead.    See what I mean!!!

All Managers in attendance received a mug to take home.  It was gift wrapped with the Matching “Share a cup” Stamp set from the Autumn- Winter Mini.  Stampin’ Up! are such a generous company!










The gifts didn’t stop there.  All demonstrators who attended the Convention received a bag containing yet to be released stamp sets. We received three stamp sets in total as well as some yummy rub-ons.    Now I wish I could share those stamp sets with you- however I can’t show them until the release of the new catalogue on the 1st of September!  One of the things I really love about being a demonstrator is being able to see the new products that are available before they are released to everyone else!  🙂  (If this is something that sounds appealing please be sure to ask me for more information about becoming a demonstrator too!)

One of the great things about getting together with other Demonstrators is the opportunity to share ideas with each other.  One of the ways this happens at Convention is through “swaps”.  We all make some samples using Stampin’ Up products and “swap” these with other demonstrators.  Most people make a card but I tend to make ‘mini scrapbook layouts’.  Originally I didn’t think I would have the time to make any swaps before I left but at the last minute I chopped up some designer series paper and ran some dies through my bigshot and decided I would make some swaps after all!   In the end I sat in the hotel foyer assembling my swaps and enlisted the help of my roomie Sue Madex to secure the ‘project recipes’ on the back.  It was all a bit of a rush and to be honest with you- I was not competely happy with how they turned out.  I wish I had the time to add a bit more detail- at the very least sponge around the edges of the cardstock but alas things didn’t work out that way…but at least I was able to share in the buzz of swapping at Convention.  Here are the 6 x 6 layouts I created….


STAMP SET: Cottage Garden

CARDSTOCK: Kraft, Rich, Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, Whisper white

BIGSHOT and DIES: Stampin’ Up! Top note die, Sizzlets Lots of tags, Stampin’ Up Little leaves

Over the next couple of days we watched talks and demonstrations and participated in ‘make and takes’ Here is Shelli Gardner (CEO) during one of her presentions on stage.  

There was also lots of eating and drinking and chatting.  One night at dinner we were even treated to fireworks.

Now although the fireworks were a ‘blast’- the biggest ‘bang’ for me was the Dinner and Awards Banquet on the final night.  When the doors opened we were greeted by the paparazzi as we walked the red carpet. (Thanks for the pic Sue- I wasn’t prepared for this kind of welcome and didn’t have my own camera handy!)


The table centre pieces were to die for.  Beautiful glass bowls filled with tulips and a candle.  The photo really doesn’t do them justice.

I was so thrilled to be able to share in the night and witness my upline, Claire Daly and also my sideline/ fellow team member Sue Madex walk the stage to receive their awards.  I was so proud to be sitting next to Claire when it was announced that she was Australia’s Top Demonstrator of the Year.    How amazing is that!? It was so lovely to see all of their hard work recognised like that!

I got to ‘walk the stage’ to receive a sales award and also a ‘recruiting’ award.  I was absolutely blown away when it was announced that I was Australia’s first “RISING STAR”  (Top NEW Demonstrator of the year)

It was so nervewracking having to stand on stage for a photo- I was so blown away I didn’t even think to turn sideways for a more flattering photo LOL!   I will share the pic if you promise not to laugh.    This is me on stage with Shelli Gardner (Stampin’ Up Co-founder and CEO), Emma Parker Wilson (NZ Manager) and Aaron Scott ( Regional business development manager, Australia)

Here is the gorgeous Sue and I after the Awards night with our roses, certificates, pins and goodies (Yes more yet to be released STAMP SETS)

As I’m sure you can imagine I had such a wonderful time away and I have so many great ideas to share with you.  If you are keen to book a workshop and see some of the products in action then please be sure to get in touch!

In recent days, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators have received the very exciting news that Stampin’ Up! are undergoing a Colour Renovation. 

For over two years, Stampin’ Up have done extensive research including investigating colour trends in the fashion, home décor, and crafting industries, and have conducted focus groups involving demonstrators and Stampin’ Up! experts.   I am thrilled to reveal to you the new trendy colour palette you will be able to work with commencing with the new catalogue in September 2010.  I am so excited by the changes I just couldn’t wait to share the news with you!

The new colour palette is organized into four collections.  They will be known as Subtles, Brights, Regals, and Neutrals. Now isn’t that much easier to remember!? You will see 25 of the current SU colours remaining, and ten past In-Colours returning as core colours, and the addition of five new core colours.

Check it out! Ta da!

You’re probably wondering why I am telling you this now- but I am so excited I could burst.    Isn’t the new colour palette yummy!?!!!   I also wanted to give you plenty of warning so that if there are retiring colours you would like to order to add to collection of cardstock or inkpads then you have plenty of notice before they are gone forever.

The colours retiring at the end of August 2010 include the following….

I am you are as excited by this news as I am!
