Annual Catalog Ordering Begins Today


While waiting for the Stampin' Up! website to update with the new catalog, I thought I would tell you about some of the new products in the Annual catalog so you can complete your Wish List before you order today, beginning at 1 PM Central.      

First, the new catalog is available for download.  Its a large catalog, so give it some time to download.  Even if you've received a hard copy of the catalog, the online catalog is a great resource for seeing larger photos of products, and also for quickly finding videos.  Look for the white arrows in the catalog. Click on the catalog image to download your copy now.

If you need a hard copy of the new catalog, contact me with your mailing address.  I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  If you wish to order additional copies of the annual catalog with your order, single catalogs can be purchased.  Item number 148889, $5.00 USD.

Why you need a Stamparatus


Fewer stamping error, create your own paper patterns, and make multiple cards quickly.  Here's a direct link to the video if it doesn't show up in your email.




    
While we're waiting for the website to update, take a look at what you need to know about the new Stamparatus stamp positioning tool.  If the video doesn't show up in your email, here's the link:  





Hints for using your Stamparatus:  The magnets are very, very strong.  However, if you drop them, they will break.  If placed on a table, they will "find" each other and they will easily break when they smack together.  You may find that you only need to use one magnet when working on your projects.  Don't place them on a table when not using them.  Store them on the back of the Stamparatus when not in use.  Many users have wrapped their magnets with washi tape to protect them and to make them easier to pick up.  Also, read the instructions before using your Stamparatus for the first time.  Stampin' Up! has provided more tips to help you get the most from your new Stamparatus.

Of course, with all new stampin' tools, there are techniques to help you get the most from your new purchase.  Here's a video showing tips for using your Stamparatus with your red rubber stamps.  The direct link to the video is here, if it doesn't show up in your email.





The next video shows you techniques for Creating Patterns with the Hinge-Step Technique.  With this tool you can create your own patterned papers like plaid patterns!    Two more  tips:  (1)  When creating patterns that run off the edge of your paper, cut a piece of grid paper the size of your Stamparatus and place under your cardstock.  (2) When inking your stamps on the Stamparatus plates, place a stamp case underneath the plate.   Here's the direct link for the video.






Stampin' Up! has created additional Stamparatus Technique videos and you may want to visit and subscribe to the Stampin' Up! YouTube channel to see all of the great Stamparatus tips and techniques.  Just don't do it at work.  You're likely to find yourself watching video after video and will wonder where the morning went.    

The new Varied Vases stamp set and the Stamparatus positioning tool is a great duo for getting perfect placement.        

  


 
Use the four sides of your Stamparatus plates to set up the multiple stamps for the vases, flowers, stem and sentiment so that one stamping error doesn't cause you to start over.  Instead, just use the Stamparatus to  stamp any errors again. The Stamparatus can be ordered with your new catalog order on Friday, June 1.  Check it out on page on 207 of the new catalog.






What you need to know before placing your new catalog order. 


The Stampin' Up! site will be down until 1 PM, June 1, as Stampin' Up! transitions to the new catalog items.  You can begin placing orders at 1 PM (Central) Friday, June 1.  

New Tools:  There are also several new tools you might have missed as you looked through the new catalog.  From the Stamparatus for positioning your stamps, to the new stamp cleaner shammy, to the new Big Shot Embossing Mat, exciting new products that will send you back to your catalog again and again. Look for these new items when the new catalog goes live.

Current stampin' Blends Markers updates.  The current colors of the Stampin' Blends are in stock and available for purchase on your June 1 order.  Thank you for your patience as Stampin' Up! worked to restock this widely popular product.  New Stampin' Blends colors are still on track to be available mid-June.   Stampin' Up! will update us as soon as we have more information on availability.   The new colors have a red "n" next to them in the new catalog. 

The Big Plans Planner Kit and refill by Stampin' Up! is delayed and will not be available to order June 1.  More updates will be passed on as they are received.

The exciting new ink pad designs.  Here's the direct link to the video.









Any orders placed with expedited shipping on June 1, will not ship out until June 4.

There are two types of stampers who will order from the new June 1 catalog . . .


One type of stamper will place an order from the new catalog on Friday, June 1 and pay full retail prices for their order.  The other type of stamper will place a new catalog order and get the order at a 20 to 25% discount on all Stampin' Up! products.  

The difference?  The second savvy stamper signed up as a Stampin' Up! hobby demonstrator on June 1.  This smart stamper will place a Demonstrator Kit order for $99 and personally select $125 worth of merchandise picked from the new June 1 annual catalog.  Then, when this smart stamper receives his or her Demonstrator number via email -- usually 15 to 20 minutes after the smart stamper signs up as a Demonstrator online -- she or he places the rest of her new catalog order and future orders at a 20 to 25% discount. What a great way to support your crafting hobby!  

Once you're a demonstrator, grow your crafting skills with Stampin' Up! University, and attend Stampin' Up! events and local card classes.  Then decide to remain a Hobby Demonstrator or use your new skills to earn money while doing something you love.  Read more here

To place an Order  


1.  Orders over $150 (not including tax and shipping), qualify for shopping rewards. You select free merchandise from the current catalogs to add to your order.  You can also purchase hostess sets with a $150 order.

2.  If the purchases on your Wish List are over $100, the $99 Starter Kit is one way to save on your purchase today.  And save even more on future orders.  You can order $125 worth of product for your $99 starter kit.  After your initial $99 order for merchandise you select from anything in the current catalogs, place an order for the remainder of your Wish List as a demonstrator, and save 20% on your purchases as a demonstrator.  Need help building your shopping list? Contact me, and we'll work through your starter kit order together. 

3.  Place an on-line order through my Stampin' Up! store - 24/7 Shopping.  I would love to be your Stampin' Up! demonstrator if you don't already have one.  Let me know if you need an 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. 

4.  Clearance Rack items - while quantities last.


5.  Order current or previous Paper Pumpkin monthly craft kits. 


Enjoy!
