New Fun Project Kits

Stampin' Up! has once again outdone themselves with the kits in the Occasions catalog.  These two kits are fabulous! 

This first one is called "Incredible Like You".  There are so many things to love about this kit:  the overlays are beautiful, the lined envelopes are so fun, the beautifully colored card bases, the sentiments... this is a great kit!  

You get to make 16 cards! There are four designs and you make four of each!  And the kit costs just $27.00!  For sixteen cards and envelopes!  

This is a great kit to use as a class to introduce your friends to your love of stamping!  Just let me know when you want to have your stamping party and I'll provide the place, the stamps and the inks and the adhesives, and you provide the friends and the snacks! Your friends can come and stamp lovely cards and see why you love stamping so much, you'll have the fun of introducing them to stamping, AND you'll get the hostess rewards to get even more goodies!  Its a WIN WIN! 

Take a look at the video below... 


This next kit is called "Made to Bloom" and it is total and complete... it even includes the stamp set, a block, and a small stamping "spot" of ink!  All for $27.00! You'll get to make 12 cards!~ 3 of each of 4 designs! And when you're done making your cards, you will still have a great stamp set and stamping spot! 

Take a look at this quick video....

I'm so excited about these kits! They offer the opportunity to make several cards quickly, and also to introduce your friends to the hobby you love!  Be sure to check these kits out! 

Let me know if you have any questions! 

Craft and Carry Tote


The new Craft and Carry Tote is a multipurpose tote you will use for years to come. Not only will it help you get organized for all your stamping projects, and you can also use it whenever you travel away from the house. 

Beginning in January, when Saleabration begins, you'll be able to  get this tote for a limited time.  Ask me how and don’t miss out!

The Craft & Carry Tote features a canvas bag with two carrying straps that make it easy to pack supplies to carry with you wherever you go.  The tote includes interior repositionable inserts so you can rearrange carrying space to accommodate all your favorite products. The tote also features the Stampin’ Up! logo. 

So if you want to get your hands on this bag,  email me for details.  Your chance is coming up! 

Cling Stamps

Check out this exciting announcement!  

New Cling Stamps are coming!!!

Have you ever had the experience of inking up your stamp, only to have it fall off the block and land on your paper, exactly where you did NOT want it to be??   It's SO frustrating! 

Well.. kiss that experience good by~ No more~  With the new cling stamps, they will never fall off~ YAY!!!

Beginning in January, with the 2019 occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochure, all new stamp sets will be available either in cling (for red rubber stamps) or photopolymer.  Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalog will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount, or photopolymer.

Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalog that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalog.  Take a look at the cute video below introducing the Cling Stamps.

Watch for more information about carryover stamp sets in April 2019 with the regularly scheduled communication about catalog transitions, the carryover list, and the retiring products list.

In 2019-2020 annual catalog, clear-mount and wood-mount stamps* will no longer be available. The only exception is background stamps in North America only, which will still be available in wood-mount.

Snowflake Showcase

The Snowflake Showcase Promotion is half over and going strong.  The special promotion will be available until November 30th, or while supplies last, whichever comes first. Unfortunately, the Velvet Paper has already sold out.  

Watch as Shannon gives you a look at the promotion:


Here is what is included in the promotion (minus the Velvet Paper which has sold out):

At  my recent Ruthless Stamping Fifth Annual "Craft Your Christmas " Retreat, I used the beautiful snowflake thinlets to make the snowflakes in the centerpiece decorations.  I used the Sparkle Glimmer Paper to cut the thinlets out on the Big Shot. Then I attached them to the twigs with jewelry twine.  So pretty!
