Stampin' Up! 2020-21 Annual Catalogue Live and Host and Join Promotions Too

by Joanne James3. June 2020 13:52

The wait is over - it's June 3rd and the new 2020-21 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue is here! I will be updating my links on the right hand side of my blog and you will find a permanent link to the new catalogue there, but for today you need look no further than the picture below which will take you straight to the new catalogue:

 

The new catalogue is fantastic, with so many great new products to choose from. I've sent paper copies to everyone who has shopped with me in the last 12 months; a digital copy of the new catalogue can be accessed via the image above and it will be permanently linked via my blog on the right hand side if you don’t have a paper copy and wish to browse. If you have your paper copy and just want to go straight to the shop to place your order, click here - ordering systems have now fully transitioned from the old stock items to the new so you are good to go! Also, remember to add the current hostess code for June NSKDEXBA if your order is less than £150 and ensure your preferences are set to 'contactable' to receive a thank you in the post from me.

Here's a quick video that Stampin' Up! have produced given a quick catalogue walk through of some of the highlights to wet your appetite:

 There are a number of items that are already on backorder and the main things that feature in the new catalogue that are not available on launch are the new die cutting machines - I will let you know as soon as these are going to be available to purchase. Most items are ready and waiting to be bought though!

As mentioned previously, this year's catalogue launch is online over on my Facebook Page. This is a great opportunity for you to see some of the products, take advantage of my BOGOF sale of retired stamp sets, and have some fun even if you don't live in or around Northampton! Click here to browse the BOGOF list.

There are also a couple of promotions that go live today to coincide with the launch of the new catalogue:

The first is the hostess promotion that I talked about in this post. As a reminder, you can earn an additional £20 of hostess rewards when you have party sales of £200 or more throughout the month of June: 

 

Just because we are socially distancing, doesn't mean we can't get together. if you would like to organise a virtual party with me, just let me know - numbers are unlimited and it can be a great way to connect with friends far and wide for a session of crafty fun! 

If your wishlist is long, you might also want to consider a cracking good join promotion that is running through the month of June too: 

 

 I will write more about this another time, but the deal is simple: for £99 receive £130 of products of your choice and in addition any stamp/tool bundle FREE. Yes, any of the stamp/punch bundles on p.168-169 or stamp/die bundles p.173-179 in the new catalogue - so potentially another £55 of free product - what a great deal! As always, you can always find the link to join my team on the right hand side of my blog page; alternatively it's right here if you fancy jumping right in!

I also have a number of classes lined up in coming months featuring products from the new catalogue - the first of which are detailed below:

  • 15th June - Blossoms in Bloom
  • 6th July - Lovely You Bundle
  • 27th July - Arrange A Wreath Bundle

Full details for these classes can be found on my Facebook Events Page  or alternatively under the 'Events/classes' tab on my website.

That's a lot of information for one post; if I were you I would put the kettle on, put your feet up and get comfy and settle down with your new catalogue for a browse and start creating that all-important wish list!

Back tomorrow with a new project; until then, happy shopping!

Stampin' Up! 2020-21 Annual Catalogue Paper Shares Are Here!

by Joanne James30. May 2020 11:00

 

The new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue goes live next Wednesday so it's time to announce my new Product Shares!

You know that feeling - you want it all, but your budget just doesn't stretch that far? Well shares are the perfect answer! You get a little bit of everything, without having to purchase a full pack. A share can also act as a 'try before you buy' - you get to see papers, ribbons, buttons and accessories 'up close and personal' before deciding which ones you like the most and would like to purchase as a full pack.

Shares work really easily: you decide which shares and how many you would like to take part in. You place your order by emailing me at [email protected] and I will invoice you and arrange payment. Once the closing date for the first round of shares is reached, I collate the orders, place an order with Stampin' Up! for the product, then once I receive it, I package the papers and send them out to you. Simple!

So much to choose from! I am currently focusing on paper shares and have two different shares on offer:

 

New Annual Catalogue Designer Series Paper Share - all sheets measure 6" x 6" - £31 plus £3 P&P

  • Artistry Blooms – 6
  • Flowers For Every Season – 12
  • Forever Greenery – 6
  • In Good Taste – 12
  • Ornate Garden Specialty – 6
  • Peony Garden – 6
  • Playing With Patterns – 12
  • Playful Pets – 6
  • Whale Of A Time – 12
  • World Of Good Specialty – 6

In all you'll receive 84  6"x 6" sheets of Designer Series Paper!

 

New Colour Family Paper Share - all sheets measure 6" x 6" - £21.50 plus £3 P&P

  • Brights – 20
  • Neutrals – 20
  • Regals – 20
  • Subtles – 20 

In this share you will receive a total of 80 sheets of paper. 

Want It All? £55 - and you'll get shares of all the new Designer Series Papers and the new colour family Designer Series Paper Stacks, and that includes postage & packaging! If you choose this option, I will also include a sample of the new Rainbow Glimmer Paper for FREE!

If you would like double or more shares of any particular thing, then that's fine too. I will cut your paper shares into 6" x 12" sheets where possible to give you more crafting flexibility (for the DSP stacks you will simply get double the number of sheets since they are already pre-cut to 6" x 6").

All postage & packaging quoted is for UK only - if you would like a cost for shipping to Europe, then please email me for a separate quotation.

The deadline to sign up to the first round of shares is Tuesday 2nd June at 8pm GMT

If you live local to me and would like to save on postage and packaging costs, please email me with your requirements and I will happily place your order, to be ready for doorstep collection on delivery. If you have any questions, just email me at [email protected] or give me a call!

 

Stampin' Up UK 2020-22 In Color Club Now Open - Book Your Space!

by Joanne James30. May 2020 09:00

With a new Stampin' Up! catalogue, new in-colours always feature on a new wish list - why wouldn't they? The new 2020-22 In Colors will be with us for the next 2 years and this year's in-colours are very on-trend and co-ordinate beautifully with each other and the other colours in the Stampin' Up! colour families:

 

To help you spread the cost and gradually grow your new in-colour collection, I am offering an in-colour club (UK customers only). It begins this month and runs for the next 5 months, up to and including October. Each month, you will receive a collection of  products for one of the colours, with each month featuring a different colour. You will be sent a reminder on the 15th of the month, and your in-color club invoice will need to be paid by the 29th of the month in order that items can be ordered in good time.

Each month, you will receive: 

  • 1/2 pack of A4 cardstock (12 sheets)
  • 1/2 roll of 1/4" (6.4mm) In Color Ribbon
  • 1 ink pad
  • 1 ink refill
  • 1 Stampin' Write Marker
  • 20 Enamel Dots
  • Eight 6”X6” In-Color DSP sheets
  • A hand stamped card featuring your in-colour of the month

Since all of the colours except Bumble Bee are also available as Stampin' Blends, there is the option to add on a Stampin' Up! Blends Marker Combo Pack each month for an additional £8.50. 

For the month you receive the BumbleBee colour kit, you will receive 1/2 pack of Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Cards & Envelopes and 1/2 pack of Flowers For Every Season Memories and More Card Pack in place of the Blends. Both of these products also feature all five in-colours.  

Details:

Basic Pack Cost: £24 plus postage and packaging (Royal Mail 2nd Class Signed For) every month June through October. If you are local, you can avoid the cost of shipping and arrange to collect. 

Enhanced Pack Cost: £32.50 plus postage and packaging (Royal Mail 2nd Class Signed For) every month June through October. If you are local, you can avoid the cost of shipping and arrange to collect. 

Payment can be made by Paypal or bank transfer (or cash/cheque for local customers).

If you would like to join my new colour club this month, then you can email me to sign up here.

The 2019-20 Retiring Lists Explained

by Joanne James23. April 2020 12:00

 

Following the announcement of the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue and 2020 Spring-Summer catalogue retiring lists, I just thought I would pop by with a quick post to highlight some of the key points of note and some of the things that I will miss the most. The lists are so long (and tiny!) that it can be easy to miss some key points. So here goes: 

  • Stampin' Blends are NOT RETIRING! They will still be available in teh new catalogue (and with more colours too!) but they will be unavailable as singles, only as a Light & Dark Combo pack. They are on the retiring list because of this and the new combo packs will have a different number to the one they have currently.
  • Some of the bundles are retiring but only as a BUNDLED ITEM. Each item will still be available individually, but no longer at the 10% bundled price. This primarily impacts Annual catalogue bundles; for the first time, a number of the seasonal catalogue bundles are carrying forward into the new catalogue as a bundle, retaining their discount. 
  • Some dies are NOT RETIRING! The old packaging and product numbers are retiring. Due to a change in supplier/manufacturer, these dies will still be available but will have new product numbers. 

There are a number of items on the retiring lists that are key items/tools in a crafter's arsenal or that you may be surprised to see depart that I want to make sure you are aware of that are leaving that might get lost amongst the stamp sets, and they are:

  • Embossing Buddy
  • Circle punches - various
  • Glimmer paper
  • Copper embossing powder
  • Stamparatus metric plates pack
  • 12"x12" Memories and more album and page protectors

There are also some amazing bargains, especially on kits: one of my favourites is the 'Notes of Kindness' card kit that at 60% off is just £13.20 - bargain!!

Retiring products are only available WHILE STOCKS LAST, so if you've still items on your wish list from this year's annual or spring-summer seasonal catalogues, you need to check the retiring lists and if they're on it put an order in pronto! Don't forget to add this month's online hostess code: WG4Q4WQV

Hop online to get the latest on stock availability and place your orders. Some retiring items are discounted by up to 60% so these may well be snapped up quickly. 

I will be back tomorrow with a creative post; until then, happy shopping!

If you want to stock up on any of the retiring in-colour items and you haven't already done so, especially re-inkers, I would urge you to do that sooner rather than later as they are always the first things to sell out - please see my earlier post here for full details and direct links for these products to the online store.

Sale-A-Bration 2019 Starts Today And The New Spring-Summer Catalogue Is Here!

by Joanne James3. January 2019 08:00

 

Hello everyone - I'm back! Following a longer than anticipated Christmas break (sometimes, family simply has to come first) the new year brings with it lots of Stampin' Up! goodness: it's time to shake off the January blues, today is THE day - yes, the highlight of the Stampin' Up! calendar, Sale-A-Bration is here! No more sneak peeks - the catalogue is available, the shop is live and from now until 31st March the benefits are yours for the taking.

So what is Sale-A-Bration? For anyone who hasn't come across it before, it's Stampin' Up!'s annual promotion that is loaded with offers whether you shop, join or host:

 

Earn a free Sale-A-Bration product for every £45 you spend between 3 January and 31 March. There is also the opportunity to earn even bigger rewards with a £90 purchase. It's the perfect time to purchase those products you've had on your wish list and earn more products for free! 

 

It’s the best time of year to join Stampin’ Up! There are 2 fabulous joining options during this year's Sale-A-Bration promotion: Option 1, you can become a demonstrator for just £99 and choose £71 more of FREE products for your Starter Kit. That's an extra £40 worth of product in your starter kit when compared to the usual £130. Alternatively there is option 2: for £125, you can receive £170 worth of craft items and this exclusive Craft & Carry Tote to carry it all around in too! The tote bag is absolutely fabulous and a must have for all crafters - check it out in this video:

 

Isn't it just great?! Plus, the whole kit ships for free!

Earn an additional £20 in hostess credits when you host a party and have party sales of £200 or more (this also applies to individual orders). So for party sales of £200, that makes a whopping £40 of Stampin' Rewards - more freebies!
