Kits ~ A great holiday gift!


Kits Pic 1

Stampin’ Up’s range of All Inclusive Kits are perfect for different groups of people, for different reasons. These all-inclusive kits arrive packaged in their own sturdy box. Inside is everything you need to create the projects – except for possibly a pair of scissors. This makes them perfect for crafting on the go whether in a waiting room; in hospital; watching children in their out of school activities or perhaps on holiday.

They are also just the thing to gift to family and friends who would enjoy some crafting time. The styles and contents of the kits vary and mean that there is something for everyone, regardless of their age or interests.

One of the groups of people Stampin’ Up specifically had in their mind when they launched the Kits Collection, were people new to Paper Crafting. They give the recipient everything they need to create beautiful projects that they can be proud of. Alongside all the elements for the project, there are simple to follow step-by-step instructions and links to videos for the specific kit and more general stamping basics.

New kits are regularly being added to the collection and you can see all the available kits in the online store. If they are showing in the store, then they are available to order. If you can’t find a kit listed there, then unfortunately it is no longer available.

The latest kit to be added to the collection is the Timeless Greetings Kit. This allows you to celebrate the people in your life who mean the world to you. It is an all-occasion card kit you can use year-round! This unique kit features an elegant pocket watch and globe design in neutral colours, along with heartfelt sentiments that are sure to inspire lasting memories. These cards are perfect for wishing happy birthday, saying thank you or sending a friendship note in style.

The two cards feature printed card bases and envelopes with black printed layers. The globe stand and watch case are both pop out die cuts in silver foil. Both the globe itself and the watch face need stamping, but the stamp set, ink spot and block are all included and the pictures in the instructions demonstrate exactly where to stamp.

The sentiment strips are also pop out die cuts and there are spares in case of any stamping mishaps. There are a variety of sentiments, so this allows for variety when creating the cards.

Like all kits, all the adhesive you need is included, and this kit has dimensionals and glue dots. The instructions even illustrate where to position your adhesive.

Kits Pic 5If someone is feeling a little more confident with their kit, there is no reason why they can’t use the components of their kits and experiment with different layouts. Of course, once all your cards are created you will still have your stamp set and ink spot left to play with and probably other spare pieces. A pack of notecards and envelopes is always a good addition to your kit order, because these are perfect for creating more cards with your leftover supplies.

Mktl_shr_1_perfect_partners_0822_na (2)When I first saw the Yeti to Party stamp set in the July-December Mini Catalog I thought it was so cute but didn’t have a clue how I would use it. Then Stampin’ Up! created the Perfect Partners—dies for six existing stamp sets that did not have coordinating dies.  Dies for the Yeti ~ makes life so easy!  I had the stamp set but I ordered the dies as soon as they were available!


Don't forget you can save 10% if you purchase the stamp set and dies together as a bundle. This bundle and the dies are available only through September 30, 2022.  Information on ordering any of the six bundles or die sets on this flyer....


Glitter Washi Tape!!!


Halloween will be here before we know it!  I love the colors, costumes, and handing out candy to the trick and treaters and I am so pleased about Stampin’ Up! bringing back washi tape. Glitter Washi Tape is found on page 57( at the top of the page, #159973) in the July-December Mini Catalog. It’s been a while since we have had this product and I wanted to show you a cute card using this beautiful glittery washi tape.

As you may know, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the relaunch of the Magnetic Cutting Plate for some time. After redesigning and rigorously testing the plate, we felt that we had a successful model for a relaunch of the product. Unfortunately, we’re now finding that with mass production, a defect in the manufacturing process is causing the plate layers to separate after use. This is not an issue we’ve experienced in the past and we are currently working with our manufacturer to determine its cause. 

After extensive additional testing (and fair amount of heartbreak), we’ve determined that the relaunched Magnetic Cutting Plate does not meet the standard of quality that we expect for our products. As a result, we have made the decision to turn this item off (effective immediately) for the foreseeable future. Additionally, we will be putting the development of our Mini Magnetic Cutting Plate on hold.

We stand by our offering of the highest quality products, so if you or your customers purchased the Magnetic Cutting Plate (item 161128), you will be issued a refund within 45 days, regardless of whether you’ve encountered issues with the product. If you ordered the Magnetic Cutting Plate but have not received it yet, you will still receive the product as well as a refund. Please do not contact Demonstrator Support for your refund, as it will be automatically issued to your original form of payment. If you paid for any orders on behalf of your customers, you are responsible for reimbursing those customers.

We share in your disappointment and frustration. Please do not try to repair or alter defective plates, as they may damage the machine. If you would like to improve the alignment of your open dies and stamps without a Magnetic Cutting Plate, you can use temporary adhesives such as washi tape, masking tape, or Post-it Notes to secure your die and paper together before running them through the machine. 

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
