Stampin' Up! ~ changes.....

Stampin' Up! News ~ Changes in Sale-A-Bration this year ~ information for demonstrators and our customers.  SAB I begins on January 5 and ends on February 28, 2021.

Beginning in 2021, we will have two Sale-A-Bration promotions throughout the year (one in the first six months, and one in the last six months). We will also be shortening the length of the promotion. Instead of having a single, three-month Sale-A-Bration, each Sale-A-Bration promotion will now last for two months. This change will mean four months of Sale-A-Bration a year!

Product availability during Sale-A-Bration will be greatly improved. Here’s how we’ll achieve this:

  • January–February Sale-A-Bration: We will only offer domestically-sourced products in this Sale-A-Bration brochure. Historically, the short sales cycle combined with Chinese New Year have caused product availability issues. Now, by offering only domestically-sourced products during this first Sale-A-Bration promotion, you and your customers don’t have to worry about your favorite products moving to Not Orderable status.
  • July–August Sale-A-Bration: The product selection in the second Sale-A-Bration will be broader and available only while supplies last. We realize that could potentially be challenging, but we also believe that having this information in advance will create a sense of urgency with your customers and allow you to provide a consistent answer when asked, “Can I get this product in a few weeks?”

Dandy Garden Suite/Stampin' Up!

OnStage@Home last weekend was a bit of everything that demonstrators look forward to when they get together for their annual convention.  And, this event had been planned originally to be held in Salt Lake City with demonstrators arriving from all over the world.  Obviously that is not the way it turned out but, I think it was even better this way ~ virtually!!  The more I think about it the more positive I am that this event really topped all the others that I have been attending all these years.  Of course, I did miss seeing demonstrator friends, all the smiles and hugs and catching up.  But, Stampin' Up! did such an excellent job of organizing and presenting that it was easy to focus (at home) and I learned so much (with no distractions).  Yea Stampin' Up!  A very worthwhile use of time!!!  One part of events is always stamping ~ of course ~ so these are the products we received to stamp together ~  Dandy Garden Suite.

DAD CARD
Introducing you to another lovely demonstrator, Jenny McCormac, from England.  She has been a demonstrator for 10 years and had the distinct pleasure of introducing the WELL SUITED SUITE of Stampin' Up! products coming soon in the January Mini Catalog.  Our traditional 'convention' ONSTAGE@HOME was a virtual treat over the weekend ~ beginning on Thursday evening and ending late Saturday afternoon.  It was fabulous and I want to share some of it with you!  Enjoy Jenny's creations!

GIFTS FROM STAMPIN' UP! this weekend include a stamp set, ENJOY THE MOMENT, below.

One of the presentations today was by Melody Hind the Concept Art Manager at Stampin' Up!

GIFTS

Melody used this stamp set to talk about the different types of stampers ~ beginner, casual and avid.  We have all been a beginner and most of us are casual stampers.  Tomorrow I will post the image with three seed pods that she used to show her approach to the three different types of stampers.  In the meantime here is a really good idea from Melody ~ she uses our Grid Paper (130148 on page 163 in the annual catalog) for a draft of her design.

Quite Curvy

Stampin' Up!'s video, below, shows how to make these two cards using the QUITE CURVY BUNDLE (1562280)/there is no sound for the video.  The designer series paper used is from the PEONY GARDEN DSP on page 149 in the annual catalog.  The colors are Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Petal Pink and Whisper White.  Interesting ~ you can add your own colors to the gray designs!
