Q&A: New Stampin' Up! Catalog (2011-2012)

Q: How do I get a copy of the new catalog?

New CatalogA: It’s an annual phenomena, the new Idea Book & Catalog arrives and stampers around the world drop everything to pour through the pages to see all the new products and project samples. Husbands go hungry, kids are sent outside to play, and the laundry is ignored. It’s okay, we all do it! You sure don’t want to miss out on that!

The 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog can be purchased online or with any order beginning July 1st. Better yet, contact me today to pre-order your reserved copy and you may even be able to have it in your hands on July 1st!

Schedule a July workshop and you’ll be one of the first to receive the new Idea Book & Catalog, AND you’ll get it for free. Plus, you and your friends will have the fun of seeing and creating projects with the hottest new items!

If you want to see the catalog before July 1st and you love the quality and creativity of Stampin’ Up! products, you may want to join my team! Stampin’ Up! demonstrators get lots of perks like being the first to see and order new products at a discount. Some demonstrators join as a hobby for the discount on products they love and some join to earn extra money doing something they enjoy.

Starter Kit

The Starter Kit is one of the best-kept secrets in the catalog. Why? Because when you order the Starter Kit, you get over $300 of products and supplies for only $175, and with no commitments, you have nothing to lose and a whole lot to gain. Some of the favorite benefits of being a demonstrator are obvious like the discount, earning income, access to tons of demonstrator-only resources online, and the monthly Stampin’ Success magazine. Other benefits, like the joy of amazing friendships and the sense of accomplishment that comes from sharing your creativity, are harder to measure, but every bit as valuable.

I’m sure you have lots of questions about becoming a demonstrator. I’m happy to answer them for you, without pressure, so you can make the best decision for yourself.

Get your hands on it!
The new Idea Book & Catalog will be here before you know it, so contact me today to pre-order a reserved copy, schedule your fun July workshop, or find out more about the joys of being part of the Stampin’ Up! family. Any option you choose will ensure that you have your hands on your new Idea Book & Catalog while it’s still hot off the presses!

Thank You Treat Box

Thank you for being you

Here Comes the Sun(flowers)

Finally! The sun has peeked through the clouds of La Nina and it has brightened my soul! I was so inspired by the light (and a card sent to me years ago by a demonstrator friend, Mindi B) that I pulled out the Love & Care stamp set from the Summer Mini catalog and my Stampin' Pastels for a little "Poppin' Pastels":

This technique is really fun and easy: Stamp with Versamark onto white card stock and then use sponge daubers to apply pastels (chalk) to the stamped image and watch the color POP! It's such a cheerful look, matching my optimistic attitude today. Oh, and the flowers embossed into the Early Espresso card stock is the new Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (also from Summer Mini). Enjoy the sunshine!

Time to Say Goodbye

It's Time to Say Goodbye
The end of a year is bittersweet...there are stamp sets I've loved a long time that will be leaving and it's hard to part with. But I love change, too...so I look forward to the new catalog arriving on July 1st!

You can click on the image above to access the retiring lists. Some of the accessories are discounted up to 40% off, but are only WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. One point to make: SU! WILL still carry 12x12 card stock (even though it is listed on the Last Chance Accessory List), it's just being re-configured. Everything else is gone for good on June 30th! When you order through my website, you get PREFERRED PRICING!
