This post will be fairly long as I want to share a fair bit of information about changes to products and other things happening at the moment.


Stampin’ Up! has announced some changes to it’s die-cutting and embossing products. It has parted ways with Sizzix will use a new manufacturer. It will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalogue. Dies and folders will be a little different but both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine.


The Stampin’ Trimmer will cease to be available as of 3 June 2019, including all accessories. There will be a new Stampin’ Trimmer but there will be a delay before new products become available.


The 2019-20 Annual Catalogue goes live on 4 June so its time to say goodbye to some of the products in the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue and the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.

Products on this list are available while stocks last and are not discounted but may be discounted from 9 May. The easiest way to view the list is in the online shop.


The clearance list has recently been updated to clear the way for new products. These products can also be viewed in my online store.

That’s it from me today. Hope you have enjoyed your ANZAC Day.

More Swaps from 2019 Onstage Live Auckland

Welcome back to my blog!

I have some more swap creations to share and, again, they have been made with stamp sets which are due to retire to make room for all the lovely new stuff.


Theresa Griffith created this incredible Never Ending Card using the One Wild Ride and En route Stamp sets, both of which are retiring with the current Annual Catalogue. She also used the Tranquil Textures DSP.


Emma Stark created this lovely card using a fresh palette and the Incredible Like You stamp set which is retiring from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. I though this set might carry over as it co-ordinated with a Project Kit of the same name and is quite pretty and versatile.


Jessie Holton, from Victoria, created this cute bookmark using the All the Good Things Stamp Set from the current Annual Catalogue.

I am very sad to see this stamp set retire as it is a DISTINKTIVE stamp set with some very handy greetings and great for a range of techniques, in fact I am holding a class using this stamp set on 30 April. Although the class is full at this stage, I might do a repeat class if I get enough interest. Contact me by email if you are interested in attending this class.


Australian Sarah Crittenden used the Humming Along bundle from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue to create this cheerful card. The Subtle DTIEF and the shimmery white card make it even prettier.


This clever 6″ X 6″ Origami Frame was created by New Zealander, Alicia Yap using retired DSP. She included instructions for making it.


Jenny Greig from St Clair, NSW created this sweet card using the Climbing Roses Stamp Set and co-ordinating Die Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.


Australian Astrid Bealing created this cute card using Hey Love and Incredible Like You Stamp Sets, both retiring from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.


Roslyn Vest, from Coolac NSW, created this using the retiring Share What You Love DSP and mini Ruffled Ribbon. She has also used the yummy new Country Floral Embossing Folder.


Jenny Christmass, from Canberra, used the Dear Doily Stamp Set and coordinating Dies from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue to create this pretty card.


Michelle Strazds, Mt Barker South Australia, used the Amazing Life and Butterfly Gala stamp sets from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. While the former is retiring, I am pleased that the butterflies are carrying over. She has used sponge daubers to create the stunning rainbow background.


Miranda Sleath of Brisbane, Queensland, has used the stamp set A Little Wild and co-ordinating dies from the current Annual Catalogue to create this cute little bookmark.


Sayerah Deasey created this pretty card using the Floral Frames stamp set and coordinating Dies from the current Annual Catalogue. The Tin Tile Embossing Folder and Wink of Stella finish it off.

Rose Keightley created this lovely bright card using the Incredible Like You Stamp Set from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue .

So, as you can see, there are lots of lovely stamp sets retiring at the end of May. If you’d like to purchase any before they go, you can purchase them in my online shop by clicking here or contact me by clicking on the Contact Me button at the top of this page and follow the prompts.

I hope you liked these swap from Onstage as much as I did.

Swap Cards Received from 2019 Onstage Live Auckland

Welcome back to my blog.

It will probably take me a little time to share everything I have from Onstage. I thought I would share some of the swaps which used retiring stamp sets first up as they will only be available until the end of May. These products are available until then from my online shop (if you live in Australia) or contact me.


This stunning swap was created by Melissa Gifford from Perth, Australia. I love the vibrant colours she has used. She has coloured the heart diecut stamped with the Tree Rings stamp. This stamp is retiring from the current Annual Catalogue. I also like the way she has used the Subtle Dynamic embossing folder.


This cute treat bag was created by Tash Martin. She has used the stamps, dies, DSP and ribbon from the Sweetest Things Suite in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. These items will not carry over to the new catalogue.


Yvonne Pettitt created this pretty card using the In Every Season Stamp Set which is in the current Annual Catalogue but will not be carried over. She has also used the Gingham DSP, the Tufted Dynamic Embossing Folder and the Pearlised Doily, all of which I love.


This beautiful card was created by Australian, Jenny Haydock using the Floral Frames Stamp set and Dies from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. I love these dies, especially with the gold, silver and copper foil. And that Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder Again. It is subtle, but it adds a sophisticated, finished look to a card layer.


This amazing swap was created by Lyn Verity. Sher has used the Sweet Storybook Stamps and Dies and the Fairy Celebration stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue and the Piece of Cake Stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue. Would you believe that all three are retiring at the end of May.

Lyn has gone all out with this card, using heat embossing, Shimmery Card, Wink of Stella and Frost White Shimmer Paint as well as sponging and masking. A really lovely card.


Helen S created this gorgeous carry bag, sized perfectly to hold a few cards as a gift. Helen has used the Happiness Blooms Stamp Set and DSP which is in the Occasions Catalogue. She provided printed instructions for making the bag.


Nicole Clare from Melbourne created this charming card using the Petal Passion Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue which will not be available in the new catalogue. However the Crackle Paint Stamp from the Occasions Catalogue, used here with gold heat embossing, will appear in the new catalogue.

I Hope you have enjoyed seeing these swaps as much as I have.
