The Big Day is here!

Thursday, June 1 is the big day… the launch of the new annual catalog.  I can’t wait for you to see all the new products and, of course, our favorites that are returning! You may have seen lots of samples so far on Pinterest or other Facebook pages so you have an idea of the fun stamping year ahead of us.

That’s the good news!

The bad news is that I had my catalog order loaded for all my customers that have ordered in 2016 – 2017 and when I checked it today to see if I added a catalog for a customer that purchased in person instead of online, my order was gone! I didn’t save it! I must admit April and May were crazy with business travel but I specifically checked the order on April 30 to make sure I entered it…how does a person that works with technology all day long forget the save/close button!!!  I wondered why all of you haven’t been emailing me to indicate how much you loved the new catalog when you received it! 😥

So today I placed an order for 2 bundles of catalogs and will be delivering them in person. They should be here next week. Unfortunately you will have to view the online catalog tomorrow until I can get a copy in your hands. For those of you that are out of town/state, I will get one in the mail as soon as I receive them!

Great idea

One of the leaders/demonstrators that I follow and take online class from, Lisa Pretto, had a great idea on one of her posts today…she shared her June 1 order list.  Since I wanted to take the time to update everyone on the catalog mishap, I don’t have my new catalog order put together yet. I’ll work on that for the weekend and share the items I’ll be ordering and the pages you can find them.  Then when we have a workshop, virtual party or card buffet (another new idea shared from the home office team!) you will have an idea of some of the stamps we’ll be working with first. I have some new stamp sets ordered from my preorders but I’ll send all in one list.

Hostess Code

For those of you that have placed large orders before, or hosted workshops, you know you can earn free product or hostess stamp sets with orders of $150 or more.  But for those of you that don’t need as much, I’ll create a hostess code for the month of June and then everyone that places an order online, and uses that code, will earn a free gift from me as a thank you for your order.


Stampin’ Up! is rewarding all hosts or hostesses of parties in June with even more rewards for parties with a total of $350 or more. Extra product, what’s not to love about that! If you are interested in hosting an event, in person or just an online catalog party, let me know and you can earn the extra $35 rewards!

Project Life

If you haven’t heard Project Life memory keeping is going away effective tomorrow, June 1.  Stampin’ Up! has enjoyed their contractual partnership with Becky of Project Life but will be ending that relationship.  Stampin’ Up! is introducing in the new catalog, MEMORIES and more, a similar system of card packs and pocket pages. I have loved what I have seen so far and am anxious to continue to put my pictures together in albums!
