Hello, I've moved...

A big hello to my loyal visitors, and to anyone else  who stumbles upon this poor neglected blog.
A while back, I decided to streamline my internet presence to my Business Facebook page

and my Demonstrator Business Website,

I wanted to keep this blog running as a storehouse of all the card samples, technique ideas etc, so it will be here for the foreseeable future.  For more regular updates, come say hello on my FB page, or have a browse on the online shop at my a Demonstrator website - it's the easiest way to see what items are on promotion, what's been added to the clearance rack, and to have any order delivered to your door within Australia.

Of course, you can always find me by email at or phone 0403175790

Thank you!
Xx Michelle

New Catalogue Goodness

Hi everyone,
The new 2015-16 Annual Catalogue is now live and ready to order from, both in hardcopy book form and via my Demonstrator website Online Shop - just click the Shop Now button to the right hand side.  If you would like your own copy of the catalogue to flick through (and add tape flags to build your inevitable wish list!), just contact me on  I can send one to you anywhere in Australia for $5 including postage.

Here are some cards I made using a new Hostess Set, Floral Wings.  It's a 2-step Stampin' set, and comes in photopolymer for easy layering.  Very effective for quick cards.  The design is a CASE of on of the lovely Alison Barclay's cards, I love her style!  The greetings are from a new set called Cottage Greetings, and you can see that it has pretty much all the most common card-giving occasions covered.  There is a card kit that co-ordinates with this kit, and I'm thinking of running a class on it - more details to follow.

If you have sharp eyes, you might see a new punch, Washi Label - it proved very useful to cover over a couple of tiny ink smudges thus saving the cards.  Always a good thing!

Tuesday, 2 June 2015

Today is a very special day!  For TODAY only, Tuesday 2nd June, there is an overlap for three different catalogues.  It's the LAST DAY to order from both the 2014/15 Catalogue and the Occasions Catalogue, and the FIRST day you can order from the new 2015/16 Catalogue.  There's also new goodies on the Weekly Deals page and the ever-popular Clearance Rack!

So - you can check out the remaining goodies on the Retirement List and get new products as well!  There are some items that are INCREASING in price in the new catalogue, INKPADS and REINKERS are one example.  Old prices apply TODAY, from tomorrow the 2015/16 prices will apply.

There are also changes to the way Hostess Benefits are calculated, so if you have a big wishlist from any catalogue today, totalling $300 or more it's your last chance to receive at least $50 to spend in any of the three catalogues.  From tomorrow, a sliding scale starting at 10% of order value kicks in.

The best way to take advantage of this serendipitous overlap is to use the convenient Online Ordering System - click this link to visit my online store:

Stampin' Up have been busy moving things into new categories, but everything is searchable by name and item number, so if you can't find it browsing, it's still there to order.

If you're placing an order of less than $300, here is a Hostess Code for you to add to your order in the box provided during checkout
I'll draw a random name from the shoppers who use the code for a special prize...
If you're taking advantage of the last chance under the old Hostess Rewards system with an order of $300 or more, don't use the code.

Any questions?  Give me a yell on 0403175790 and I'll help you sort out the best way for you.

Happy Hunting,
xx Michelle
