Christmas in July Anyone??

I just got home from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Convention: Inspire. Create. Share. I have a TON of new product and ideas to share with you, many of which are from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. Since you can't order from that publication until August 28th, I want to share a few Christmas in July supply suggestions for those of you who like to get a head start on your holiday crafting! {TIP: if you choose clear-mount or photopolymer stamp sets, be sure to click the link for the product description to see the acrylic block sizes you'll need!}

CLEARANCE RACK -- Restocked July 10th (while supplies last):
The fastest and most accurate way to find out what is available is to check out my Online Store Clearance Rack. I'm a sucker for simple and quick, and with the discounts in the Clearance Rack, you cannot beat the value of KITS and PRE-PRINTED PRODUCT! Stock up before the rush of the holidays, and then just open your cupboard and pick your pretties!!! If you click on any of the following kits and you are not taken to the product page, then it has sold out--I'm sorry! Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (this is an add-on to the Build-a-Banner Kit sold in the Annual Catalog), Noel Notes Simply Sent Kit, Pretty Presents Designer Bows, Pretty Presents Designer Tags, Real Red Goodie Gear Simply Created Kit, Season of Sweets Designer Printed Kit, Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags (grab a pack of Crumb Cake Notecards & Envelopes and create greeting cards with these!), Snowflake Season Simply Scrappin' Layout Kit.

SNEAK PEEK HOLIDAY CATALOG STAMP SET:
While you can't order from the 2014 Holiday Catalog until August 28th, you *can* grab the Beauty of the Season stamp set right NOW!!! (available in wood-mount or clear-mount)

Beauty of the Season stamp set - Includes 4 stamps

NEW PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET (while supplies last):
We also have a holiday photopolymer stamp set called Christmas Bliss that is available--but it's not going to be in the 2014 Holiday Catalog, so if you want it, I suggest you get it NOW!

Christmas Bliss Photopolymer stamp set - Includes 11 stamps

HOLIDAY CARRYOVER LIST (through August 27th):
Check these out on this handy PDF. Some items may be carried over again, but the items on the PDF are only guaranteed to be available through August 28th.

2014-2016 In Color Bookmark

Another quick share...this is a bookmark made using the 2014-2016 In Colors. The lines under the color name are made with the Stampin' Write marker fine tip, the flower on the left is stamped in the corresponding ink color using a stamp from the Something for Baby stamp set, and the piece on the right is the coordinating card stock punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. At the top is the Stitched Satin Ribbon in one of the five colors.


My customers made these at my New Catalog Open House last month here in Colorado Springs, and they've been going out to my customers with their catalogs. There's nothing like actually seeing real-life samples. If you didn't get one, you can come pick one up at my next Open House on July 11th or 12th. Just RSVP for the session of your choice on my Event Calendar, and follow up with an email to let me know you haven't gotten a bookmark yet. I will also include a PDF of the bookmark below if you want to make your own.


Don't forget to print the PDF at 100% size. There are 5 bookmarks on a letter size sheet. Just cut 1/2" from the left and right, and that should leave you five bookmarks that are 2" wide each. Round the lower corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder, and punch the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Then cut a length of about 6" of your favorite In Color ribbon and loop through the hole at the top.

Patriotic Work of Art Flag Card

Just a quick share for you today...a flag card created with the Work of Art stamp set (available in wood-mount or clear-mount). Makes a great thank you card for that BBQ you're going to attend at a friend's place, or an anytime military appreciation card!


In addition to the Work of Art stamp set, I also used the star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Night of Navy ink pad, Cherry Cobbler ink pad, Whisper White card stock, and some Dazzling Details on the stars (it's like glitter glue).

NEW & IMPROVED Paper Pumpkin 2014 - Join the Party June 10th!


Have you heard of Stampin' Up!'s Paper Pumpkin Kits? If you have, don't tune out yet--the program has gotten a facelift, you can read about it below! The samples above were created with the May 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit, and you can check out a YouTube video of the time-lapse unboxing to project completion HERE. The kit included both a Father's Day and a Happy Birthday stamp, for versatility.

NEWSFLASH: (edited 10:20am MT) Join me on June 10th at 5pm or 7pm MT for a 20 minute LIVE Paper Pumpkin training session at http://www.youtube.com/stampinupvideo
Get a little more info on the kits, a chance for my customers to win prizes directly from ME (more info later), and a Sneak Peek reveal of the June Kit...with enough time left to sign up and take delivery of the kit this month!!!
(try a NEW Prepaid Subscription - see links below)

If you haven't heard of it, Paper Pumpkin has been around for just over a year. It's a paper crafting kit, delivered to your door monthly. It includes stamps, ink, and media to complete a project...for a simple, fast, and fun creative escape (designed to be completed in 30 minutes or less). Most of the bits that need adhering are self-adhesive, but you may need a bit of glue in some cases, and perhaps some scissors.

Here are some GREAT changes to the Paper Pumpkin program:
  • EVERYONE gets the SAME KIT each month! (no more Welcome Kit, though each new subscriber will still receive a free clear block in their first shipment)
  • MORE Bang for your Buck! (kits now include at least 50% more product)
  • BETTER INSTRUCTIONS! (numbered directions right on the picture)
  • PHOTOPOLYMER STAMPS! (you can see through the clear block AND stamp, for perfect placement)
  • MORE COORDINATING PRODUCT! (kit contents more closely align with products you can order from the catalog or Online Store, making it easier to buy more supplies to recreate similar projects)
  • ORDER PAST KITS & PAST KIT REFILLS! (while supplies last, for subscribers only)
  • PURCHASE PREPAID SUBSCRIPTIONS! Why would you care about that?? Because you not only get the kits for the same price including shipping, you also get sales credit in the form of Stampin' Rewards in my Online Store, or Hostess Dollars on a Workshop order!!! So, your Paper Pumpkin purchases count towards earning FREE STUFF!!!
  • GIVE THE GIFT OF PAPER PUMPKIN! (prepaid subscriptions are redeemed through a promo code you can gift to someone else: Secret Sisters, Kids, Grandkids, your monthly crafting club, etc. Just be aware that you must give the whole prepaid term, you can't split out months across subscriptions.) 

Give the benefits of Prepaid Subscriptions a try today: click the corresponding link to purchase a 1-Month, 3-Month, 6-Month*, or 12-Month* Prepaid Subscription in my Online Store. You can add anything else from the store that you want, to your Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription purchase!
(FREE GIFT from me, with 3-Month or more Prepaid Subscription purchased during June 2014...be sure you order it before June 10th if you want to take delivery of the June Kit!)

The cost of the kit has NOT changed, it is still $19.95 in the US, and that price includes shipping. The exclusivity of the stamps has NOT changed--you will only find the Paper Pumpkin stamp images in Paper Pumpkin Kits. The subscription format also has NOT changed, meaning that you can skip any number of shipments you want**, and you are still considered a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber. This means you can Skip the shipments, and still call Stampin' Up! anytime to order any past kits, or past kit refills that become available!

*SAVE $1 per kit with 6-Month Prepaid Subscription, SAVE $2 per kit with 12-Month Prepaid Subscription. **Shipments must be marked "Skipped" on your Paper Pumpkin subscription no later than 11:59pm MT on the 10th of any month you'd like to skip.

Are you getting a feel for this year's catalog? To me, it seems like FUN, FAST, and SIMPLE are key themes! I will go into much more detail with samples and instructions, and product tutorials, in my upcoming blog posts, so you don't miss out.
