Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Stamp Set

  • Stampin' Up! It Starts With Art Stamps
  • Demonstrators are Getting Ready for OnStage Registration
  • Holiday Catalogs are on the way

It Starts with Art Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! 

I decided to give some love to my It Starts With Art Stamp Set.  I was thinking about cute cards to make for the beginning of the school year or for cards for my crafty friends  This set includes coordinating dies, called Art s & Craft Dies, and a 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper pack called Follow Your Art.  You'll want to take a look at all of the other goodies that are part of the Follow Your Art Suite.   See the entire Suite on pages 52-54 in the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.

I used a basecard of Soft Suede for today's card.  Then a later of one of the prints from the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper.  

For the sentiment, I die cut a piece of Whisper White using the Stitched Nested Label Dies.  I matted the sentiment layer with a larger size Stitched Nested Label from Crush Curry cardstock.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede onto the Whisper White layer.

Then, I grabbed several different dies from the coordinating Art & Craft Dies and created several buttons, a clip and three pens.  The buttons are die cut from Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay.  The three pens and clip are colored with Blends Markers listed in the recipe below.

Join as a Demonstrator and attend OnStage Local in November   

Demonstrators are preparing to sign up for Stampin' Up! OnStage Local Events.  Registration opens August 20 at 9:00 AM (MT) for all demonstrators. U.S.A. OnStage locals will be held November 16, 2019, in:

  • Atlanta - Georgia International Convention Center
  • Hartford - Connecticut Convention Center
  • Las Vegas - Bally's Las Vegas
  • Lansing - Lansing Center
  • Portland - Portland Metropolitan Expo Center

Registration dates:  August 20-September 27, 2019 - or until sold out
Price:  $120 USD or 12,500 flex points

There isn't a location within easy driving distance of Houston this time, so, I'm planning to attend OnStage in Las Vegas, and I'm encouraging my team to join us for this one-day event also.  Stampin' Up!  will show us the new Sale-A-Bration and Occasions catalog, we'll stamp, learn, swap cards with other demonstrators, and we'll get to pre-order items from the newest catalogs to start promoting early for our January, Feb, March events.

But, hold on, you say.  Its not even Fall yet.  Why would I want to plan so far in advance?  Well, we all know that preparation is the key to success.  AND, because you can still take advantage of the Extra, Extra Sign up promotion this month.  That's where you join Stampin' Up! as a Demonstrator for US$99 and you select a starter kit worth US$155 in Stampin' Up! merchandise.  You selection $155 in merchandise from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog AND the Holiday Catalog for your $99 Starter Kit, plus you get a $10 coupon next month to use before October 31.  

That means, if you're planning to start your stampin' business now to take advantage of the best time of the year to show Stampin' Up! products to crafters for their Fall and Holiday projects, this is the perfect time to do so.  

Friends and family love thoughtful handmade gifts and cards for the Holidays, and you'll get an early start by showing them new Holiday stamps and dies and holiday projects with items from your Starter Kit.  You'll receive business supplies for free as part of your starter kit, including a pack of Holiday Catalogs to show the friends who love crafting as much as you do.    Sign up before August 20, and then on August 20, sign up to attend your first Stampin' Up! OnStage event in one of the locations above, or join my team in Las Vegas!  The sooner you sign up the more time you'll have to create Fall and Holiday Samples using items from you Starter Kit.  Then on September 4, customers will be ready for you to show them your samples and the new Holiday Catalog, so they can place their orders through you.

Ready for the Holiday Catalog?  

Its almost here!  You're probably beginning to see Holiday Holiday Catalog projects from Demonstrators who have already received their Holiday catalog pre-orders.  Sigh. I climbed out of bed at 4 AM to be one of the first to place my Holiday Catalog preorder, and placed it within 45 minutes of ordering opening on August 1.  Its been in "picking" for several days.  But yesterday, I got word that my pre-order is finally on the way.  While I wait, I'm watching all of the new catalog videos published by Stampin' Up! to show Demonstrators samples made from the new products, and making sure my customers will be the first to receive their copies of the new Holiday catalog.  Stampin' Up! began mailing the 2019 Holiday Catalogs to my customers on August 5!  Look for your copy around the 15th to 22th of August.

You can order early from the Holiday Catalog, too.  Sign up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator today.  You'll be able to select $155 in catalog merchandise from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog and the new Holiday Catalog as your Starter Kit for only $99.00.  Then next month, you'll receive another $10 coupon to use on Stampin' Up! Merchandise by October 31. If your next Stampin' Up! order is over $99, you'll find that your Demonstrator Extra-Extra Sign-up Special will save you money! And you'll save 20 -25% on your future orders as well!
