NEW Catalog: What You Need to Know!

Some crafters waited up to place their order at 12:01 am this morning because they were so excited to get their hands on new colors, new stamps and new paper from the 2023-2024 Annual Catalog! You may be glad you waited, because there are a few details you need to know, and I’m here to help guide you.

First~ shipping may be slower than usual. Order early if you have an event or supply that’s running low!

After a record-setting April, SU! employees, staff and even executives have been all-hands-on-deck to pick and package your orders, and as of today (May 2nd), shipping times are 4-12 business days. That will get quicker over the next week as they complete orders from the Free Shipping day and catch back up, but I thank you in advance for your patience while waiting for your order.

Second~ in addition to all the amazing new products, there is also a new KIT available!

The Confetti Birthday Kit will have you shaking things up in your creativity!

Third~ There are a few new things available online only!

The Mini Cut & Emboss machine in BOHO BLUE is available to customers while supplies last.

Grid paper in the new In Colors to keep your stamping area clean.

A new SUITE in SPANISH (as well as English): Texturas Naturales

Finally~ If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, there is a new peek at the MAY Exploring In Color kit AND there is now an ADD ON that you’ll want to include in your next order!

The Add On kit is only available while supplies last and includes:

  • 18 cards, 6 each of 3 designs (Folded card size: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″)
  • 18 coordinating envelopes
  • Coordinating colors: Boho Blue, Copper Clay, Daffodil Delight, Moody Mauve, MossyMeadow, Pebbled Path, Wild Wheat

If you are not getting a Paper Pumpkin craft kit in the mail each month, here is your opportunity to subscribe and enjoy a happy hour of paper crafting each month! May’s kit is called “EXPLORING IN COLOR”:

WHEW! That was a lot of information, and I hope it helps you not to miss a thing! Happy Shopping!

Pick Your Freebie Fast and Sale-a-Bration Challenge

As Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sale of the year winds down, things start to sell out… yesterday the Dainty Flowers Designer Series Paper Sale-a-Bration exclusive product was the first to go. Have YOU picked your freebie yet? Don’t forget that you get to choose a product with each $50 purchase through the end of the month!

Thanks GOODNESS it’s Friday! The #tgifc408 challenge was to use a Sale-a-Bration product, but it’s too difficult to choose just one, so I chose TWO: the Thanks a Bunch stamp set (free choice with $50) and the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper (a mega-pack that you could choose with a $100 order). TIP: When you order $150, you can choose both PLUS earn $15 Stampin’ Rewards! It’s a good time to stock up on adhesive, envelopes, card stock and don’t forget to check the clearance rack.

The Tailor-Made Tag was a terrific piece for my garden of carrots! Makes me want to pick one.

Have you noticed that long carrots are sweeter and tastier than baby carrots? You can argue, but it’s true.

Since I loved the layout of this card, I had to try it with a different piece of the Dandy Designs paper and another favorite new set… Sweet Citrus:

Two of the colors I used (Pale Papaya on the carrot card base and Fresh Freesia on the grapefruit card layer) are RETIRING in April. These popular In Colors are known to sell out quickly once the retiring list is released in March (if not before), so remember to add an ink refill for your ink pads and stock up on card stock or coordinating accessories now, while you can take advantage of free products during Sale-a-Bration, and before they are sold out, too.

While some of our Sale-a-Bration products are dwindling, there are additional items to choose from the annual catalog:

Ride On Birthday Card

Often I am pleasantly surprised by a suite of Stampin’ Up! products that I didn’t expect to love. The Ready to Ride Suite is a perfect example!

While my single motorcycle riding experience didn’t endear me to riding the big bikes, I can see where the wind-in-your-hair-open-road-big-sky kind of day could be very appealing. This collection of products: Legendary Ride stamps and coordinating Dies, Metal Plat Embossing Folder and most spectacularly, the Ready to Ride 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper…all come together in SUCH an AWESOME way for some revved-up greeting cards like this one I demonstrated today:

There are a few tricks I wanted to show you about easily cutting and adhering the pieces to create a very detailed motorcycle…and the video begins with an unboxing of a LIMITED EDITION Boho Blue Mini Cut & Emboss Machine (with details on how you can get it!):

To help you put it together, I made this Motorcycle piece guide. You can change colors and “chrome” as desired…on my card, I used the gunmetal silver foil sheet and the bright silver is shown below. Feel free to print off the picture and slide it into your die envelope or stamp case to refer to when building your bike!

If you are “Ready to Ride”…these are the supplies you’ll need:

Product List

Did that Boho Blue Mini Cut & Emboss call your name? Join my team during Sale-a-Bration (January-February 2023) and you could choose Starter Kit option #1 to receive this Limited Edition machine PLUS choose $175 in products for just $129!

If you have questions about the starter kit or any of the products/techniques used here, shoot me a message and I’m happy to help!

Hoot! Hoot! These Owls are CUTE

Oh my, these Adorable Owls live up to their name…and may be the first stamps you choose FREE for a $50 order during Sale-a-Bration, starting today!

Demonstrators have the opportunity to pre-order from the January-April mini catalog a month early (AND earn Sale-a-Bration products first, too!), so I’ve been playing with these sweet things in preparation for the launch of this favorite event. If you like being the first to party with new products, you will want to take advantage of the special Starter Kit offer for Sale-a-Bration because how cute is the exclusive BOHO BLUE Mini Cut & Emboss Machine? PLAY this video to peek…

With that mini – but mighty – machine (or the classic white option), you’ll be ready to cut the Framed Florets oval dies to create this Adorable Owl card, and have less fussy cutting in the future!

The contrasting Designer Series Paper really makes this simple fun-fold feel fancy, and there is plenty of room to write a message, slip in a gift card or cash into this greeting card:

Ready to start your own Stampin’ Up! adventure? It’s flexible, fun and creative! I’d love to help you get started:

Start with a Sketch: Sweet Candy Canes

If your stumped about how to start a card, start with a sketch!

On my Facebook Live Lunchtime Crafting video today, I followed the #tgifc381 sketch:

And here is the card I created, using the Sweet Candy Canes bundle:

Following a sketch really gets me excited because you can start with what you have and make something completely unique!

In-Color Sunflowers in Bloom

We are closing in on the end of the Annual Catalog, and that means we must say good-bye to the 2020-2022 In-Colors. Two of those colors are featured in the #tgifc358 color challenge this week and that got me dreaming of this sunny card:

During March, Stampin’ Up! has the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine on sale for 20% off, plus some stamp & die bundles are on sale that can be used in the mini machine…including the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle. I’ll share more about this tomorrow, but this is the card I created for the color challenge, using items from the Savings Are in Bloom promotion.

If you have Bumblebee, Magenta Madness (or Just Jade, Midnight Muse and Cinnamon Cider) ink pads in your stamping supplies, make sure you order the refills for your ink pads along with extra card stock NOW so you can continue crafting for a long time with these beloved colors! Once the Retiring List is announced ON MARCH 23, those are traditionally the first things to sell out.
