It's an exciting time of year as not only is there a brand new catalogue with lots of gorgeous goodies in it, but it's the time of year when you can get lots of freebies during Sale-a-Bration!

Here's how Sale-a-Bration works:

For each $90 or $180 you spend on Stampin' Up! goodies in either the Occasions catalogue or the Annual catalogue, you get to choose an item from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.
Host rewards get a boost during Sale-a-Bration too! Just gather a few friends to stamp, collect orders and you can get even more freebies!

And the best special of all is the Joining Special. There are 2 options this year:
Join for $169 and receive $315 (that's $80 more than usual) worth of Stampin' Up products as well as business supplies; or
Join for $210, get $315 in Stampin' Up products, business supplies, and the amazing Craft & Carry Tote.
Demonstrators were able to pre-order this tote in November, but they were all sold out in about 2 weeks. It's a fantastic tote, and I believe it will be very popular. The only way to get it is by joining as a Demonstrator during Sale-a-Bration, and if you want one, I wouldn't wait too long, as they might be gone before the end of Sale-a-Bration!

Happy Stamping,

How to use and care for the new cling stamps from Stampin' Up!

Happy New Year!

Stampin' Up's Occasions Catalogue starts on January 3, and introduces all new red rubber Cling stamps, that actually cling to the blocks and won't fall off!

Here is a video from Stampin' Up! on how to attach the labels to the new stamps, and how to care for them.

These will eventually replace all the "clear mount" red rubber stamps, as well as the wood mount stamps. So we will be left with photopolymer stamps that are see-through, and red rubber cling stamps. Hopefully that will be less confusing for people.

I'm excited by the new stamps as I prefer the red rubber stamps to the photopolymer, and I like to put the labels on the back of my stamps so I can see which way the image is - especially for greeting stamps.

Happy stamping,

Year End Closeout and Clearance Rack Refresh

To make way for new exciting products coming in 2019, many of the stamps, dies and accessories in the Holiday catalogue are retiring on January 2.

Here is a link to the Closeout list, with discounts of 15 - 50% on some items. Please note that some items on the Closeout list will be available next year, they are either on special, or are part of a bundle in the Holiday catalogue (and won’t be available in a bundle next year).

For example, the Dashing Deer stamp set and Detailed Deer dies are currently available as a bundle as such is 10% cheaper than purchasing them separately.

Here is a link to the Holiday Catalogue Carryover list, which is a lot shorter than the retiring list.
I’m sad to see Beautiful Baubles and Peaceful Poinsettias retiring, they were great bundles that I used in recent classes.

The Closeout list contains a couple of items from the Annual Catalogue that are on special but not retiring:

Big Shot Embossing Mats

These are fantastic as they will help you create embossed backgrounds using any of your dies, whether they are basic shapes, or detailed dies. Here's an example using one of the dies in the Stained Glass dies set to create a border at the top and bottom of the card.

The other item that is continuing is the versatile Red Rhinestones.

Stampin' Up have also added more products to the Clearance Rack

The Clearance Rack, which contains retired stock, has been refreshed this week with more items added, at good discounts.

If you missed out on the Stitched Seasons Framelit Dies when they were available in August, they are now on the Clearance Rack for just $34.20. The set includes 3 double-stitched nested label dies, plus detailed leaf and flourish dies. 

Here are a few of my favourites on the Clearance Rack:
