Denise & I Live It Love It Shaare It

Stampin' Up's  ONSTAGE in Salt Lake City was fabulous ~ I am so glad that I decided to go!  Denise Caudron (above), a new member of my team, attended her first meeting and loved it!  I haven't been able to attend in several years so it was a real treat for me too!  We received the next catalog ~ 2018 Occasions ~ the new Sale-a-Bration brochure, saw demonstrations and SO much more!   AND, Stampin' Up! announced a new placement tool ~ one you have been waiting for ~ the STAMPARATUS ~ COMING SOON!

Sara's Sneak Peak

Sarah ~ New Catalog

This is Sara Douglas, Stampin' Up! CEO, and she is teasing all of us with her copy of the NEW 2016-2017 CATALOG!  The nerve, right?

Actually, this catalog is being introduced at our ONSTAGE EVENT which is taking place this coming Thursday, Friday & Saturday in Salt Lake City.  Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend which makes me sad.  I would love to be there!  But, with a new catalog being introduced, what does that mean to you?   The products in our current catalog, Share the Fun, and the Occasions catalog, Handmade from the Heart, will be available to order until May 31.  We will be able to order from the NEW catalog on June 1.  But, what about the RETIREMENT LIST?

  Retiring List

Notice the MT in the banner?  As you know that means Mountain Time so that we will actually be able to see the list at 3 PM on the East Coast on Monday, April 18.  Everyone anxiously awaits this LIST and products sell out quickly   If you want to avoid missing products on your WISH LIST you can order from my ONLINE STORE.  I will have more information about this whole process on my blog and in my newsletter soon.  Thanks for stopping by.  Susan Elise

Centre Stage/Baltimore

Centre Stage Baltimore


In November Stampin' Up! held it's first global convention in Brussels, Belgium.  The annual convention schedule and the locations for future conventions changed on October 1 to reflect the international flavor of the company.  For Demonstrators in the United States there were 'mini conventions' around the US.  The mini convention closest to Demonstrators in this area was in Baltimore and was called Baltimore Centre Stage.  I was unable to attend but a number of members of my team (Southern Stars) were there and had a great time!  At our last local team meeting I took some pictures of swaps they brought back with them and I thought I would share several with you ~ (more Christmas ideas for you) ~

No trick, just a treat..........

Stampin' Up! announced this on Friday and noted that more information would be available on Monday.  I wanted you to know this weekend in case you would like to do a little planning......time to treat yourself to new stamps and pick up some holiday gifts for friends.

15% off on almost all stamps (more info tomorrow) from the Annual Catalog and the Holiday Catalog.  I think that Clearance Rack stamp sets and Bundles are not included because they are already discounted.  I will confirm that for you tomorrow.

You can send me your order or SHOP ONLINE.  If you decide to shop online use this HOSTESS CODE - MEYHV6SZ.   I plan to send out a stamped gift the week after the sale to everyone who orders online.

I had my Southern Stars Team Meeting yesterday afternoon and I will have some fabulous cards to show you beginning tomorrow.  Christmas was our theme and the cards are lovely ~ can't wait to show you!  I must get ready for my class this afternoon ~ 2016 CALENDARS ~ lots to do.  See you tomorrow, SE


Celebrating Patty...........

I thought you might like to see a beautiful card from Shelli and staff to Patty Bennett.  Patty recently achieved her one million milestone in Stampin' Up! sales.  The company always celebrates achievements in a big way.  The following is from Sara on Shelli's personal blog.

A Card for Patty

DateTuesday, September 29, 2015 at 11:02AM

Last week Patty Bennett achieved the amazing milestone of one million dollars in career sales! It was a unique experience for me (Sara) because I was able to witness the countdown personally at Founder's Circle. She actually achieved this milestone in the company of many Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends. She told me they all cheered and celebrated with her, which had to be very cool. We always have an over-the-top card made to accompany flowers being sent, and I thought you might like to see Patty's card. She is very passionate about her flower garden, so I had her card made with that in mind. Congratulations, Patty!

Founder's Circle

2015 Founder's Circle gift

This is a cute Stampin' Up! gift I received in the mail yesterday and wanted to share with you.  It is a special gift for those demonstrators invited to FOUNDER'S CIRCLE this month.  The event is very special because it is for the top one hundred demonstrators in the company during the past year.  And, I am very excited to be part of the group!  Thank you to all of my friends and customers who supported my business in the last year ~ I would not be part of this group without you!  THANK YOU!

The event this year is in St. George, Utah at the end of this month.  I am not going because of our medical problems at home this summer so I will miss all the fun.  But, I am thrilled to be included!!!
