DON'T FORGET: 4 DAYS LEFT UNTIL THE FREE PACK OF PAPER FOR 6 MONTHS SIGN UP DEAL ENDS - CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE AND JOIN MY STAMPIN' UP! TEAM TODAY!

 

I'm back from Convention and will have more news on that tomorrow. Today has been all about catching up with my family, but I wanted to write a quick post to let you know that today Stampin' Up! has launched a new supplement to the Autumn-Winter Seasonal catalogue with a handful of new products that are guaranteed to get you in the mood for the festive season: 

If you click on the above image, it will take you to the full supplement. There are two main great products that I would really like to highlight to you:

The Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit - everything you need to create 26 stars that can be used as home décor or boxes for festive packaging and the largest of which measures a whopping 38 cm in diameter and would make a lovely alternative to a wreath with the addition of some wide ribbon. Check out the picture below showing just some of what's included, as demonstrated by Pam Morgan at the European Convention in Brussels this past weekend:

 

There is a also the 'Hello December' Project Life kit - perfect if you like to keep a 'daily December' record during the festive season.

I will be offering classes using both of the above products - I already have a Many merry Stars class scheduled for 24th November so if you'd like to attend call or email me for more details, more details on additional classes to follow - but meanwhile, do take a look at the supplement as all the items contained within it are only available WHILE STOCKS LAST - if you want to get you hands on them, I suggest you hop on over to the online store or give me a call as soon as possible to add your order to the one I'm placing tomorrow.

Back tomorrow with more creativity and fun; until then, happy stampin'!

The New Stampin' Up! Autumn Winter Catalogue Here - And It's Time To Party!

by Joanne James28. August 2014 20:05

Well, today is August 28th and that can only mean one thing - the new Stampin' Up! seasonal Autumn-Winter catalogue is LIVE!!

If you're not in possession of a paper copy, you can click on the image above and it will take you straight to the electronic version of the catalogue to browse. If you would like a paper copy and you do not already have a demonstrator, then please drop me an email at [email protected] and I will happily put one in the post to you. This also applies to any of my online 'no contact' customers who are reading this - if you have placed an order at any point and selected the 'no contact' option, I do not have contact details for you and I am unable to either post you a catalogue or email you with details of offers, etc. I can't even send you a thank you card for placing your order, which of course I would love to be able to do as I appreciate your custom!

I know I said it when the new annual catalogue went live, but the same applies to this seasonal catalogue - Stampin' Up! really have pulled out all the stops on this one, with great stamps, papers, kits and accessories for autumn, Halloween and Christmas - believe me, you will want it ALL! I've already given you a few 'sneak peeks' of some of the delights in store and I promise there's much more to come on that front!

Did I say the 28th August meant only one thing? Well, actually I meant two! Along with the new seasonal catalogue, there is also an added incentive to all customers who host a party between 28th August -31st October - all party hostesses with qualifying party sales of £200 or more will earn the exclusive 'Good Greetings' stamp set absolutely FREE; this is in addition to their hostess credits, that they can spend on any items they choose! The Good Greetings stamp set contains 19 stamps and really is a most versatile sentiment set, with everything from seasonal greetings to everyday occasion sentiments. Here's a close up of the sentiments included:

If you've been thinking of hosting a party, then call me now on 07773 421446 or email me at [email protected] to book a party slot - it's a great way to earn items on your wish list for free and have a fun night in with friends at the same time! Or host a virtual party - if you would like to take a 'catalogue basket' into work or pass it around your friends to gather orders so that you can get more hostess benefits, I can arrange that too!

Before I go just a reminder that the 'Short and Sweet' promotional offer where you can join Stampin' Up! for £99 and receive an extra £20 of free goodies (£150 instead of £130) ends at 10pm tomorrow evening, so if you'd like to talk to me about joining my team don't leave it too late! To read all about it and sign up just click here.

Also, the current Big Shot promotion is due to end 31st August, that's this coming Sunday - so if you want to get your hands on a free or discounted bundle, you only have a few more days to place your order. You can get the full offer details here.

I think that's everything for today; I'll be back tomorrow with a 3D home décor project made using product from the new catalogue, so be sure to pop by.

Until then, happy browsing - and I'm waiting for your call to make that party booking!

 

 

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!

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.

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.
