The New 2014-15 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalgue IS HERE!

by Joanne James1. July 2014 16:04

The wait is over - the new 2014-15 Stampin' Up! catalogue is finally here!

Click on the link below to access and download your own pdf copy of the catalogue - there will be a permanent link to the online catalogue as always in the bar on the right-hand side of the screen:

There are so many great new products - your wish list will be a long one! As always, if you're placing an online order don't forget to add the hostess code found in the 'shop online' box on the right hand side. For today only, if you place an order using the hostess code SM3CS22V you'll get a little something extra from me! Make sure you check the box that enables me to keep in touch with you - lots of customers that place orders with me online select 'no contact' as the default option and what many people don't realise is that this means I can't even contact you to update you with progress on shipment of your order or check that everything is ok - all of which are an important part of me providing you with good customer service. Besides, I like to be able to send out thank you cards too and little gifts from time to time - you wouldn't want to miss out on that would you?!

Right, I'm off to get my order in - come back tomorrow for more news and a special card that I've created using lots of new products. until then, happy stampin!

by Joanne James16. June 2014 11:11

Another Monday and the start of a new week! Lots going on in the coming weeks as far as Stampin' Up! is concerned:

  • Only 2 more weeks to purchase items from this year's retiring stamps and accessories lists - lots of items have already sold out, but you can find those items still in stock here:

Retiring stamps & Retiring Accessories

  • Join Stampin' Up! for just £50 - there are 2 more weeks left of the current 'sign up and save' recruitment promotion, where you can join Stampin' Up! for just £50 and choose a starter kit valued at £55. Read all about it here, give me a call if you'd like to chat to me about joining my team or if your decision is already made sign up here.

The biggest news of all today though is that I've finalised the details for my launch party for the new Stampin' Up! 2014 Annual Catalogue - here it is:

This is the first time that I've held a 'big bash' to launch the new catalogue and I'm very excited about it! I'm keen to spread the word locally about the benefits of Stampin' Up! and to meet more fellow experienced and would-be crafters and this will be a great opportunity for people to come along and see what Stampin' Up! is all about and learn more about hosting a party, my local card and papercrafting project classes and touch and feel lots of new product, including the new Project Life product set for scrapbookers and memory-keeping on the go.

New catalogues will be available for customers to take away on the day and there will be lots of offers and incentives for orders placed and parties booked on the day, as well as a raffle, a make and take project and lots of great new product and inspirational displays. If you live in or around Northampton, I would love you to join me.

If you're not local to me, but would like a new catalogue please call or email me with your details and I would be happy to pop one in the post to you in advance of the catalogue launch.

I will be providing lots of updates and 'sneak peeks' here and on my Facebook page over the next couple of weeks, so do stay tuned to join in the excitement of the build up to my new Stampin' Up! 2014 catalogue launch party.

Back shortly with today's creative post - until then, get the 30th June 2-6pm marked down in your diaries!

2014 Stampin' Up! Spring-Summer Catalogue Product Shares

by Joanne James4. February 2014 21:16

By now you will all have had the opportunity to browse the new Stampin' Up! Spring-Summer Seasonal catalogue and salivate over its contents (if not, put the kettle on and get comfy quick!) As is always the way when a new catalogue launches, there are so many wonderful new items and it's easy as a keen crafter to think "I want it all!" even if our budgets don't stretch that far! By popular demand, I've decided for the first time to offer a number of new product shares - yes it is possible to have it all!!

If you've never participated in a product share before, the idea is that you can buy a bundle that contains a little of everything rather than pay out for whole packs of paper, ribbon or accessories and because lots of people are doing the same, you combine your purchasing power so making the share possible. So here is the detail for the shares that I am offering:

Spring-Summer Paper Share: £22

  • 24 half sheets (6"x12") of DSP from each of the following packs: Kaleidoscope, High Tide, Watercolour Wonder, Retro Fresh*
  • 3 full sheets (12"x12") of gold vellum (one spot, one stripe, one hearts)
  • 3 full sheets (12"x12") of silver vellum (one spot, one stripe, one hearts)
  • 1 full sheet (12"x12") of gold foil
  • 1 full sheet (12"x12") of silver foil
  • 12 full sheets (11.4x16.5cm) Fresh Prints DSP stack

*If you would like to increase to 24 full sheets, the bundle will cost £32.

 

Spring-Summer Ribbon & Accessory Share: £13

  • 1.15m of 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon
  • 1.15m of Naturals 5/8" Chevron Ribbon
  • 2m Gold Sequin Trim
  • 2m Silver 1/8" Ribbon
  • 1m 1 1/4" Blue Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
  • 1m 1 1/4" Yellow Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
  • 5.75m Gold Bakers Twine
  • 5.75m Silver Bakers Twine
  • 6 Mini Metallic Pegs (3 gold, 3 silver)
  • 8 Basic Metal Buttons (2 each of 4 sizes)
  • 8 Essentials Wooden Elements

If you need reminding of what these items look like, check out the copy of the catalogue in the side bar on the right.

 

I have also decided to offer the following ribbon shares from the annual catalogue on an ongoing basis:

3/4" Chevron Ribbon: £11

12 x 1m lengths of each of the chevron ribbon colours (Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Smoky Slate, Pumpkin Pie, Wisteria Wonder)

 

2013-15 In Colour 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim: £4.50

5 x 1m lengths, one of each of the in colours (Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush)

 

2012-14 In Colour 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon: £4.40

5 x 1m lengths, one of each of the in colours (Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit)

 

How to order:

  • Email me with your details and which product share(s) you would like to participate in (make sure you let me know if you require multiples).
  • You will be billed for your order directly (cash or Paypal accepted).

 

If you have any further questions, or would like additional information, please email me at [email protected].

 

Small Print: Please note that purchase of the above product shares will not count towards a qualifying £45 spend to receive a free gift during Sale-A-Bration.

The Big Shot Magnetic Platform is Now Available to Order!

by Joanne James13. September 2013 20:30

No post yesterday, but two today to make up for it! Here's the first one. Great news - the Big Shot Magnetic Platform is back and now available to order again!

This is one of the 'unsung heroes' of this year's annual catalogue, although clearly I am not the only one to think so - some 13 weeks worth of stock sold out in about 3 weeks! I'm happy to report that supplies have now been restored, so if you've been eagerly awaiting yours, now's the time to order!

The magnetic platform makes light work of cutting cardstock with framelits; no longer do you need to rely on post-it notes and hope that they hold everything in place. If you would like to see the magnetic platform in action, here's a great video from Stampin' Up that shows you how it works:

If you would like to order a magnetic platform, either contact me or pop over to my online store now to purchase.

Back shortly with another post; until then, happy stampin'!

I'm Back - And The Autumn-Winter Seasonal Catalogue is here!

by Joanne James2. September 2013 20:20

Good evening devoted blog followers! I've returned from my two week family holiday in the USA and am back with you. You might not have noticed my absence, as I managed to schedule quite a few blog posts for you all to read whilst I was holidaying with Mickey Mouse (and my family too, but clearly The Mouse takes centre stage - I am his No.1 Fan!) More on my holiday shortly, but meanwhile I have lots of Stampin' Up! news to share with you, so the next few blog posts will be information-related whilst we catch up on the latest offers that are available.

So the first, and most important of these: the Autumn-Winter Seasonal Catalogue is now live! This is what it looks like:

 

I have updated the link on the right-hand side of my blog page to the electronic version of the catalogue - please feel free to browse at your leisure and enjoy the fabulous new kits and products that are available to make your festive season easy and beautiful at the same time. I will be sharing my favourite items with you later this week and once the James Juniors are back at school in  few days time, I will be making and sharing Christmas cards and projects in earnest, but for now, click on the link below to start browsing and creating your festive wishlist:

There is also a carryover list of popular items from last year's catalogue that are still available - these can be seen below:

If you would like a paper catalogue, to place an order or are thinking about hosting a party, please give me a call or drop me a line and I will be happy to help. I can honestly say there are some fabulous items in the second of this year's seasonal catalogues; it was quite tortuous to have my pre-order arrive just before a two-week vacation, that meant I didn't get the opportunity to try out some of my wonderful new goodies. That said, my vacation more than made up for it: this year it was a special one to Orlando, Florida. At 6 and 8 years old, my children are at a great age to enjoy everything that Disney World and beyond has to offer. Today, I'm going to share not a project, but one of my most special holiday photos with you:

This is me swimming with a dolphin at Discovery Cove, Orlando. See that big grin? This was a 'bucket list' moment for me, as I've always wanted to swim with a dolphin and I just couldn't keep that smile from my face.

Back with a few more information-related posts today, then full on with the creating towards the end of the week.

Until next time, happy stampin'!

It's Here - The New Annual Catalogue Has Arrived!

by Joanne James2. July 2013 08:00

Well, today's the day you've all been waiting for: the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue has arrived!

 

It is full of great new products, ranging from stamp sets, to designer papers, to embellishments and more besides - but don't just take my word for it; make yourself a cup of tea, then get comfy, check out the link in the bar on the right hand side of my page and browse for yourself!

As a demonstrator I've had the opportunity to browse the catalogue in advance and even order a selected number of new products that I've already had the opportunity to play with. That said, I have a VERY long shopping list of things I want (no, NEED!) from the new catalogue. I thought it would be fun to shoot a short video to give you a quick whistle-stop tour of the new catalogue and share with you my top 'wish list' items, so if you'd like to know what I think will be 'hot' this year, it's time to tune in:

 

As you can see, there's so much to choose from! If you have a long wish list of must-have items too, why not invite your friends round for an evening of crafty fun and host a Stampin' Up! party? You'll get the opportunity to create a great project, receive lots of crafty inspiration and earn free products that are beyond amazing; you can earn anything from £25 to £120 worth of free products and with party sales of £300 or more you will also be able to purchase one or more items at half price; this is a great way to reduce the cost of an investment purchase such as a Big Shot or a full marker set. So what are you waiting for? Contact me to book your Stampin' Up! party today!

Back tomorrow with a project; until then, enjoy browsing the new catalogue Smile !

 

There are a small number of catalogue corrections and initial supply issues that you need to be aware of, as follows:

Catalogue Corrections:

Two items were mistakenly given the same item number. Beautiful Butterflies Bigz and Lattice Bigz dies are both listed as 114507. The correct item numbers are: 
Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die - 114507
Lattice Bigz Die - 115958

The Ordering section incorrectly states that a customer has 10 days to cancel their order. Customers have 14 days to cancel their order.

Due to supply issues, the following items are currently unavailable; there will be an announcement to follow when they become available:

World Map Stamp (item 130342 for wood, 130345 for clear).

Label Pop ‘n Cuts (item 130160): Item will be available for order as of 12 July.

Wood-Mount Cases (item 127551 for full, 127552 for half).

Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Addition (item 132986).

New Colour Cardstock and Pad Kit (item 132281).
