Stampin' Up! New Stuff

WOW! Lots of new things going on at Stampin' Up! I finally received my new catalogs yesterday. I drive my family crazy until they finally arrive. ;) It is GREAT, as always and the cover is so pretty, with a scalloped side, to match our new punch that we used at the Cards in Motion Class! I'm loving the new stamp sets, accessories, Designer Paper, pretty much everything. I can't wait to show you at the Open House. Speaking of which......

Join me on Saturday, August 16th from 6-8 p.m. for the New Catalog Open House and Discontinued Stamp Sale. This once a year event is my biggest each year. There will be demonstrations of new products at 6:45 & 7:15, free make & takes for everyone who attends, and special gifts for those who set a date for a workshop in their home between now and mid-January. You also have chances to earn tickets for several door prizes. For a complete list of how to earn those tickets, email me! My used and discontinued stamps and accessories will be for sale this evening only for a 40% discount. Please bring your friends and get in on the great discount! This is a great one to attend if you are a new stamper, since the cards will be super easy and the stamps will be cheap! ;) I haven't mailed any snail mail invitations this year, so please pass on the information.

This promotion begins on Monday and runs through September 30th (hb me!) You can view the sets when the new catalog goes live on Monday, late afternoon. Remember that all of the sets that are NEW to this catalog will now be die-cut. SO COOL!

Stampin' Up! has teamed up with Sizzix to offer the Big Shot Die Cut Machine. I'll admit that my first thought was "I don't need that thing!" But the more I read about it, the more I think I really do need that thing! ;) Check out the following items it cuts through:

Click on the picture on the right sidebar and read through the brochure for yourself. Who knows? I'll probably have one soon that you can even see and try in person and then we'll both own one! :) You can have your own private little party, and collect some nice hostess gifts in the process.

Have you thought of becoming a demonstrator, but the cost has been holding you back? Do you own a lot of Stampin' Up! products already? Now you have the opportunity to purchase a smaller kit for only $99 and customize it to your interests....... stamps, scrapbooking or home decor. You'll also receive all the business supplies you need to get your Stampin' Up! business up and moving. Of course, you can always get the standard kit for $199 at any time. It contains tons of stamps and accessories, plus the business supplies, but if you already own a lot of stamping supplies, this $99 kit offer is the best I've ever seen!!! If you do get the standard kit from now through October 11th, you get to choose a free stamp set from the Catalog Sampler.

This is a new item for Stampin' Up! I love the look of it. Check out the back page for some incentives that last throughout the Fall/Winter order period. There is an incentive for new demonstrators, hostesses, and anyone who orders. Pay attention to the dates!

Stampin' Up!'s Founder and CEO has started her own blog, at that you are welcome to check out if you would like to.

Is that enough information to keep you thinking for a while! WHEW! Remember to RSVP for the Open House by August 10th.
