Introducing “You Can Make It” Supply Kits

Did you see this fantastic new concept on page 2 of the new annual catalogue? It would be easy to miss, but it’s definitely worth a look!

Stampin’ Up! is now offering supply kits for certain projects showcased in the catalogue. Being able to order these items together is a great option for beginning crafters – and it also means you can order one of these supply kits as a half-price items with your qualifying party! What a great deal!

If you’ve ever looked at one of the beautiful cards in the catalogue pages and wondered how you could create your own, this is a great way to start. Just look at the amazing range of supplies you get with one of these supply kits:

With the above supplies, you’ll be able to make cards as shown below … and many other gorgeous creations!

Here are the details on the rest of the supply kits. Clicking on any of the photos will take you directly to my online store so you can see them more closely.

These supply kits are sure to be a hit. Contact me today to order yours, or shop 24/7 at my online store. Happy Stampin’!

2018 Annual Catalogue Paper Share

By now you’ve probably had a chance to look through the new annual catalogue and are counting the days till you can order the beautiful products in it (only two days to go!!). If you’re anything like me, you might find it hard to really appreciate all the new designer series paper until you hold it in your hot little hands, and that’s why I love offering paper shares. When you participate in a paper share, you get to have at least one piece of every designer series paper in the catalogue, without spending a fortune! Plus, if you participate in a share with me, you just might find some extra goodies in your order bag 😉 A paper share is especially tempting this year, with all the new colours!

OPTION ONE: Paper Only
For four people to split, each person will pay approximately $48 and get 57 pieces of paper. You will get some of every new DSP in the catalogue, from Tea Room on p. 188 to Tropical Escape on p. 191.
For two people to split, the price is approximately $96 and you will receive 114 pieces of paper.

OPTION TWO: Paper + Cardstock
For four people to split, each person will pay approximately $85 and get 131 pieces of paper/cardstock. You will get some of every new DSP in the catalogue, as above, PLUS co-ordinating cardstock so you can start crafting right away! You’ll also get half a sheet of cardstock from the new color assortment on p. 182.
For two people to split, the price is approximately $170 and you will receive 262 pieces of paper/cardstock as above.

NOTE: Prices do not include tax/shipping. I would be happy to participate in any of these shares, or to customize a share for you and your fellow crafters if you have something specific in mind. Share this offer with your friends and let me know by Friday, June 1st if you are interested, or have any questions!!

Haven’t received your new annual catalogue yet? Drop me a line and let me know! I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! devotee for about ten years now and this is hands-down the most beautiful catalogue I’ve ever seen!

Exclusive Pre-Sale: Share What You Love Bundles

Stampin’ Up! is celebrating its 30-year anniversary in 2018, and they have found a wonderful way to mark the milestone: with a gorgeous suite of beautiful and unique products that celebrate exactly what Stampin’ Up! is all about.

Have you ever seen Stampin’ Up!’s Statement of the Heart? It’s included in every catalogue, and it defines the Stampin’ Up! mission.

Isn’t it beautiful? It’s very meaningful, too – I personally gain so much joy from helping others indulge their creative side, watching their eyes light up when they make something they are proud of. Well, Stampin’ Up! has decided to create an entire suite of products based on this statement – the Share What You Love suite. And BEST OF ALL – they have even put together some amazing bundles, available to customers for an early release! That’s right – you can get these products NOW, before the new annual catalogue launches!

Just take a look at these amazing bundles. There’s one for every crafter – whether you’re just getting started, ready to dive in a little deeper, or – like many of us – you’ve gotta have it all! (Clicking on the images will open the full-size flyer for you to browse.)

For the first time, you can even order the 2018-2020 In Color inkpad collection before the annual catalogue launches in June! And as always, you’ll save 10% when you order the collection!

You’ll want to order your chosen bundle right away, because the bundles are exclusive to this pre-order period; they won’t be available when the annual catalogue launches on June 1st. Also, the beautiful “Statement of the Heart” stamp, which is included in the “Gotta Have it All” bundle, will NOT be available in the new annual catalogue – so that bundle is your only chance to grab that stamp!

Contact me to place your order, or use Hostess code 2RY7EJZA to order through my online store.

Happy Stampin’!

2018 Colour Revamp

Stampin’ Up! is having a colour revamp! When a few core colours are changed, it’s a colour refresh. When many of the core colours change, it’s a colour revamp! Since there have been no changes made to the core colour offering since 2013, Stampin’ Up! decided 2018 is the year for a full colour revamp!

Here are the numbers:
• 27 of the existing core colours are staying
• 13 core colours are going away
• Adding 10 brand new core colours
• Adding 6 returning In Colors that will now be core colours (colours offered in the past that will now be available again – maybe some of your favourites are returning!)

The new colours will be available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog. The In Color offering will continue as previously, with  five new In Colors each year that are available for two years. The five existing In Colors from 2017-2019 will remain in the color offering. As usual, with the new catalogue there will also be five new 2018-2020 In Colors.

You can get inkpads, ink refills, and cardstock, along with other retiring products, at my online store. The store updates in real time, so as soon as supplies for an item run out, they won’t show on the store any more.

And here are the new colours!

And the full collection of colours available in the new 2018-2019 catalogue!

Which colour are you sad to say goodbye to? Which one are you not sorry to see retiring? And which new colour are you most excited to try out?

My answers are: Elegant Eggplant; Always Artichoke; and Granny Apple Green!

Want to make sure you receive a new annual catalogue when they become available in early May? Drop me a line to add your name to my list! In the meantime, be sure to check out the retiring items and grab any of those colours that you just can’t live without!

The Retirement List is Live!

It’s true, I can’t keep calm! The retirement list is live, and it is PACKED with loads of amazing items. From stamps and inkpads to bundles and tools, paper and embellishments to markers and packaging, you will NOT want to miss out on these items! While the stamp sets are guaranteed until the end of May, everything else – including bundles – is ‘while supplies last’. And that means you want to head to my online store right away to see what’s available!

If you use the hostess code below for your retirement list order, you’ll receive a gift from me!

Happy Shopping!

Get Ready to Say Goodbye!

These beautiful colours are retiring this year! Clockwise from top left, they are Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, and Peekaboo Peach.

We know from experience that the In Colour products – inkpads, ink refills, cardstock, embellishments, and marker sets – are the first things to sell out at this time of year. If any of these are on your wish list, don’t wait! Place your order via my online store. If you use the hostess code below, you’ll get a free gift from me.

The retirement list will be available on May 15th. In addition to the retiring In Colours, all designer series papers from the Occasions and Annual catalogue will be retiring. All of these products are while supplies last, so don’t delay – place your order right away!

Spotlight on the New In Colors

Have you tried out the new In Colors yet? Do you have a favourite – or a least favourite? I admit, when the colours were first revealed online, I wasn’t a fan of Lemon Lime Twist. But now that I’ve had a chance to use all the colours – in cardstock, ink, and designer series paper form – Lemon Lime Twist might be my favourite of the bunch!

I wanted everyone at my card classes to have a chance to play with all of the colours, so here are two of the projects we did that use all five colours in one card:

And here’s another project, which uses just one of the In Colors – everyone got to choose which colour they’d like to use: Products used for these projects:

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack
