Well Stampin’ Up Haven’t Dont This Before!

Well Stampin’ Up! has come up with something new and exciting today – BONUS DAYS! This is the first time Stampin’ Up! has offered coupons to customers!

Social1_BonusDays_demo_July0716_NZParticipants will receive an $11 NZD Bonus Days coupon code via email for every $110 NZD they spend in a single order (catalogue price before shipping and handling). So it’s a bit like Sale- A Bration except you can use your coupons  August 2nd to 31st on anything you want including the Limited Release THOUGHTFUL BRANCHES PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET and the BEAUTIFUL BRANCHES THINLITS DIES! Which are both totally gorgeous by the way!


Bonus Days coupon codes will be delivered via email, so an email address is required to participate in this promotion. SU cannot resend emails with coupon codes, so make sure you save the email and write down the codes in a safe place so you don’t miss out on the coupons you earn.

Just a few things to note – if you are placing an online Order or just looking through my online shop please do make sure the tab in the top right corner says New Zealand so you are looking at NZD prices! Also if your order is under $300 I really appreciate it if you can use the Hostess Code. I’m going to be sending out a little surprise to everyone who does from now on! hostess code template-001

Christmas, My Digital Studio, Promotions

Master of all she surveys!

Thats Me!! I made MDS Monday Master this week with my “Wishing you” Christmas.


“Brilliant use of the sketch with the new Wishing You download release. I just love the stack of packages on the stack of strips and how Lisa embellished the sentiment! ” ~Heidi

How exciting is that! What a great way to start the day. This card was also chosen for the NZSU Picks of the week.

The STAMP SETS – What you choose is very individual but I would suggest a set with a mix of images and sentiments or a set with good sentiments and a set with images you can use for lots of occasions. Here are some suggestions
Image and Sentiment SetsEasy Events p 34For the Birds p 34Embellished Events p 40

These all have a variety of sentiments and images.

Sentiment Sets are on pages 132 -144Some good ones would be  Perfectly Penned p 132; Teeny Tiny Sentiment p 133, Petite Pairs p 134; Sweet Essentials p 140; Sassy Salutations p 143; Curly Cute p 144
