  • Stampin' Up! Convention 2015 Wrap-up

    Well I'm back in Houston after spending the last 4 days in Salt Lake City at the Stampin' Up! Annual convention.  It was my 10th year with Stampin' Up! and Stampin' Up helped me celebrate with a special booth for breaks while on the display floor,  and a gifts including Stampin' Up! products, and stamp sets in addition to the 10 year pin with two diamonds. 

    The first day of convention this year, we previewed the new fall and holiday catalog which will be available to customers beginning Sept 1.   I can't show it to you yet, but thousands of North American demonstrators who were at Convention spent several days watching the creative teams at Stampin' Up! and several top demonstrators show us projects we can make with the new kits and stamp sets from this catalog.  Demos attending convention were able to place a special order for these new catalog items while at Convention, giving us a two week head start planning our fall and winter projects.

    If you've been waiting to sign up with Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator, August 1 is the perfect time to do so. 
    • Demonstrators who sign up Aug 1 can place orders for the new fall & winter catalog products, in addition to selecting items from the Big Catalog -- the main catalog
    • Did you know that if you host a Stampin' Up! party with your friends, that rewards you earn from the sales during a part you host can be applied to the Stampin' Up! starter kit.
    • Check out more info about becoming either a hobby demonstrator or as a fun, rewarding career, here.
    • Stampin' Up! 2015-2016 annual catalog
      is now available for download.
    • Check out all the great items you can select from the 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Catalog and Idea book.  You can download it right now
