New 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog has Arrived!

The new catalog has finally arrived. It is chocked full of great new items like:  new ribbon styles, and new In-Colors. You can now purchase Clear Mount Cling Foam that you use to convert your favorite Wood Mounted stamps to the new Clear Mount.  Also available are stickers to put on your clear acrylic blocks that will help you to stamp in a straight line (I know I've stamped crooked before - and you probably have too...hee hee).

A great new plus is that they have brought back packs of 12 x 12 solid color SMOOTH cardstock.  No more packs of smooth/textured combo packs.  I know I'm a "happy camper". 

Also, the Watercolor Paper is now in a larger 6 x 9, sized perfectly to be used with our Letterpress Plates. 

Oh, and the best part is the change in the Hostess Program.  I think EVERYONE is going to be jazzed about this.  Now you earn Hostess Dollars to use to either purchase any of the Hostess Items, or on any Catalog Item.  So now, even with a $150 workshop you will earn $25 in Hostess Dollars which will let you purchase ANY of the Hostess items.  Isn't that GREAT???? So now no Hostess item is out of your reach!

Christmas Cards - 2010

These are the cards from the Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack one of my downline and I hosted on November 8th.

I had fun in everyones company, and so did they. We had Christmas music and door prizes.

Simply Amazing! November 15-30 - 50% Off Starter Kit

WOW! This is a first that I’ve seen from Stampin’ Up! in the 5-1/2 years I’ve been a demonstrator.
From November 15 through November 30, 2010 you can become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator when you purchase the Standard, or Digital+ Starter Kits for only $87.50--that is 50 percent off the regular price of $175 (plus FREE shipping) for over $310 worth of paper or digital crafting and business supplies! (see attached PDF for what is included in each kit)

I did the math. In just stampin’ supplies (not including the business products in the kit) the merchandise you are getting would cost you $211 (plus 10% shipping and tax = $249.50). So you are getting a 59% savings just in product (65% off of the $249.50). You sure can’t beat that. Join just to get the all the great products. Then, get your scrappin’ buddies to place orders with you each month, and it will be a win-win for all.

Promotion Deadlines:
  • Paper Independent Demonstrator Agreements (IDAs) must be received no later than Tuesday, November 30, 2010; 6:50 PM (MT) – Suggest mailing right away, or overnight, since this is such a short promotion. 
  • Online IDAs must be submitted by Tuesday, November 30, 2010; 11:50 PM (MT) - I suggest doing online, because it is instantly at Stampin' Up!
Promotion Details:  
  • The Simply Amazing Recruiting Promotion lasts from November 15 through November 30, 2010.  
  • Both the Standard Starter Kit and the Digital+ Kit are available at 50 percent off the regular kit. These are full starter kits, not mini or reduced-content kits.  
  • Recruits can still add the Stampin' Memories or Digital+ Add-On and will pay the regular add-on price.  
  • Recruits who join during the Simply Amazing Recruiting Promotion are still eligible for any programs available to a new recruit. This includes but is not limited to the extra 10 percent Instant Income offer, Stampin' Start, the opportunity to purchase a Business Booster Kit, and a free two-month Demonstrator Business Web Services (DBWS) subscription.

Designer Series Paper Share

I am going to be putting together some product packages. These will help you get your hands on more styles of things without having to spend a fortune.

The first product share I have is for the Designer Series Paper (DSP).

There are 16 packages of brand new DSP – 12 packages of regular DSP and 4 packages of Specialty DSP (that has gloss, flocking, or special shape). If you were to order all 16 packages, it would cost you just under $200.00.

I’m will order them all and cut each package into 6x6 squares. You will get a total of 96 squares - one square of each design, from each package of DSP. The squares each person gets will not all be identical because of the patterns of the DSP, but it is still going to be an awesome way to get your hands on all the new papers without breaking the bank.

The cost will be $27.00, which includes USPS priority mail shipping cost*. The turnaround time for the packages will probably be a couple weeks at the most, as I will need to order them, get them in, cut and packaged, and off to the Post Office. I will let you know if there are any back orders that will delay my shipping to you, as only full orders will be shipped.

If you are interested in ordering a DSP Product Share let me know NLT August 15th. You can order more than one share if you want. You can pay with a check (drop in the mail within a day or two) or you can use PayPal. Find the Pay Pal button to order your shares and pay.

Drop me an email at if you have any questions, and to reserve your DSP Product Share.

I will be putting together other packages, and will let you know when I’m ready to start taking orders for them.I’m only shipping within the United States.

*If you live in the Quad-Cities and want to pick up your DSP Product Share, let me know. The cost will be $22.00 instead.
