When the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog arrived in May it contained something new (well, actually lots of new but one special change).  It turned out to be KITS.  No, the kits themselves were not new but the fact that Stampin' Up! did not put the actual kits in the catalog was!  So how do we find the kits???  Visit the Stampin'Up! website to see all of the kit options.  Go to STAMPINUP.COM/KITS.


Now that Sara has explained what's in your kit, let me know if you have any questions.  You can order online or I can order any of the kits for you.  Kits make crafting so easy and ~ everything you need is in ONE BOX!  Check all the kits out and then let me know which ones I can order for you.  And, did you know ~ a new collection of kits is coming soon!


One of Many......

Sara talks about one of the many CARD KITS that are available from Stampin' Up!  This one is for the guys!  There are ten card kits available.  Some of the kits are non-stamping, just assembly.  Those kits are all $12 and usually make 9 to 12 cards or projects.  The other kits include a stamp set, a block to put the stamps on and an ink spot.  These kits are $19 and there are a variety of styles. 

KITS make crafting easy ~ the boxes include everything that you will need ~ AND directions to make crafting easy and fun!  Let me know if you need more information or if you'd like to stop by and see samples of the kits we have or if you would like me to order a kit or two for you!!!  You can also order in my online store ~ just type in kits for pictures and more videos.    



From Stampin' Up!


Stampin' Up! made this information available today in the demonstrator's WEEKLY UPDATES and I thought it was important to share with you.


In April we sent an email and Sara shared a video addressing global shipping delays triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of these shipping issues, we made the decision to postpone the launches of the July–December 2021 Mini Catalog and the July–August 2021 Sale-A-Bration brochure.

We’ve continued to closely monitor the global shipping situation throughout 2021 and want you to know that we’re still averaging shipping delays of 4–6 weeks. Despite our best efforts to account for these challenges—including purchasing new product inventory much earlier than usual—the impact persists.

These delays will likely affect products into 2022, but as we continue to monitor the situation, we will look for ways to mitigate the impact and make decisions with both demonstrator and company needs in mind. Because we know that many of you plan for your business far in advance, we’ll be sure to communicate updates as soon as we receive them.

Spin the Wheel

IMG_6542Spin the wheel???  Yes, that is exactly what this interactive card that Susan Tran made (with or for her grandsons I am sure!).  The GIVE IT A WHIRL DIES allow you to spin the cardstock wheel so that different images appear in the window above the space cadet!  So cute!  Remember those cards when you were a child?  Interactive cards are always fun!  You can find this stamp set on page 57 and the dies on page 163 in the annual catalog.  More tomorrow...
