Crafty clean out. A fundraiser for Beyond Blue. Part 2: Stampin' Up! Stamps

Next installment: stamps.

Why do I have so many? In my life BR (Before Running) I was a paper crafter, and had been making pretty things since 2000. When we lived overseas, a dear friend and I set up our own business producing Asian inspired scrapbooking papers and embellishments (check out next post for some of that listed!). On our return to Australia, I had a few years as a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! where I had lots of fun being creative, teaching stamping and scrapbooking to others.

As mentioned in the previous listing, prices do NOT include postage, but I'm happy to arrange drop off/collection if you are in Sydney. Images of these stamp designs should be easily accessible with a google search using the set name. If you have any problems, let me know and I can answer any questions and take photos for you. Please contact me on email if you are interested in purchasing these stamps. Remember all funds raised go to BeyondBlue!

Crafty clean out. A fundraiser for Beyond Blue. Part 1: Stampin' Up! Bundles

In April this year I will be running the Canberra Marathon.

This is a big thing. I have never run that far before. How far? 42.2km. I have never run HALF that far before. I only started really running last year. Before that I was a mad paper crafter. How things change.

I have been fortunate enough to have been selected to run the marathon representing Beyond Blue. As such, I have a fundraising target.

Whilst I will always welcome out of the blue, individual donations via this link, I have a few ideas for bigger and better ways to attract your $$$.

The first of which is a massive Virtual Garage Sale of Craft Goods. I did a similar thing a few years ago, raising funds for the Leukeamia Foundation. That was very successful and saw almost $500 raised on behalf of my Dad and my friend. The Marathon falls on the day after the third anniversary of my Dad's passing from Leukaemia, and I am sure this emotional overlay will make the physical challenge of the event even harder.

I have all these RETIRED Stampin' Up! sets to sell. Many have not been used - some have not even been opened. Unless indicated, the stamps have never seen ink. Images should be available via a google image search. If you have difficulty finding anything, ask and I will take a photo. Prices do not include delivery. Sydney pick up can be arranged. Please contact me via email
