Exciting News!

Finally, April has arrived and Easter celebrated and soon the new Annual Catalog will be sent out to many of you! You will be able to order from the 23-24 catalog on May 2nd. If you would like a catalog, just email me at mbshedoudy@gmail.com OR mbshedoudy@cox.net. List your name and address. I will make sure to add you to the mailing list.

The catalog offers everything that has been talked about the last few months! Color refresh, return of favorite colors, new Stampin’ Write markers (they have been redesigned and are much better), new In-Colors, and a whole lot more. New Stamps, Dies, Bundles, Punches, Ribbon, and Embellishments are also highlighted in the new catalog. As a demonstrator, I took part in the “Pre-Order” which gives me a chance to get a list of items before the launch date! It is just one of the perks that you could also enjoy by joining my team as a demonstrator. If you are interested, just click on “JOIN ME” and you will be on your way!

The 22-23 Annual Catalog is still good through April! Don’t forget about it…before some items are gone, look through and check off your list. Some items will be carried over, and some unfortunately will not be.

Let’s look at the color refresh in more detail. Here is a quick video that shows some of the great returning colors.

Some beauties, huh? I think a color refresh is exciting.


Today is the last day to subscribe to get the April Paper Pumpkin kit, so don’t delay on this one. It is gorgeous!

This kit includes nine cards, three each of three designs, with elegant designs and bright colors. The iridescent foil is the shining detail to bring your crafts together. You can make a card for anyone and for any occasion!

And don’t wait, because anyone who subscribes to this month’s kit will get a FREE box organizer! This organizer fits perfectly inside your Paper Pumpkin box and is great for keeping your supplies from past kits organized, so you know right where everything is! 

Well, I better get this out to you all. Hope everyone had a blessed Easter.

Hello Again!

It has been quite awhile since I last posted anything on this blog. Sorry for the absence, but sometimes, life just takes hold and we must concentrate on other things. But, I am back!

I wanted to update some things for Stampin’ Up! Let’s start with a new program that is called Online Exclusives! These are new products that are not in any catalog. The first Suite is called “Hello, Irresistible” Suite Collection! It is online now! We introduced it March 1st.

Online Exclusives

All you have to do to see the collection is to go to my online store at creatingwithpaper@stampinup.net. Head down to the “What’s New” area to see the collection, and the exclusive kits that we offer. I am making some samples of the new Suite and will put them on my online store. The Online Exclusives will be offered in March, July and November. Again, these will not be in any catalog, so be sure to check it out! Just a quick note, the entire Suite as a package and the Loose Frosted Dots normally in the Suite are not available at this time, but all of the other products included are available singly. For example: The Stamp set “Irresistible Blooms” (# 161140 $25.00), the die set “Irresistible Blooms” (#161149 $35.00), a pack of 6 x 6 Gorgeous designer paper (#161139 $12.50) that has 48 sheets of patterned paper: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs and it is acid and lignin free are all available!

But Wait!

If you order the Stamp set and die as a BUNDLE (#161150 $54.00) you save 10%! Best bargain around!!!

Also in the “What’s New” section you can see some “NEW” stamps, dies, ribbon, 12 x 12 paper, AND the new COLORFUL KALEIDOSCOPE KIT (#161804 $23.00) that includes everything you need to make 9 All Occasion cards in one kit! Just look for the “NEW” label at the top of the items.

Let’s Talk Paper Pumpkin

At my online store, you can see the latest Paper Pumpkin that is celebrating 10 years of the famous Paper Pumpkin kits. For this celebratory kit, you have until MARCH 10th to order. You can click on the picture in the Online Exclusives to view and subscribe or click here: https://www.paperpumpkin.com/?demoid=2133322.

It’s time for New Colors!

We don’t have the details yet, but just wait until March 29th! Every few years, Stampin’ Up! takes time to develop new colors and do what they call a Color Refresh!

You’ll find some new colors and returning favorites among our Brights, Neutrals, Regals, and Subtles. You won’t want to miss the new 2023–2025 In Colors. That means evaluating and even refreshing our current products. This year Stampin’ Up! is refreshing the complete color collection! Now, what colors would you like to see in the Refresh/New colors?

New Annual Catalog Coming!

Speaking of the 2023-25 colors and what is ahead for 2023-2024…a new Annual Catalog will be available May 2, 2023 and goes through April 30, 2024! It is always exciting to get a new catalog. The new schedule has been established for all the catalogs. The Annual catalog will be available for 1 year. There are two Mini Catalogs that last 4 months each ~ January through April and September through December. I am gathering information to place orders for catalogs to be mailed. If you are not on my mailing list and would like a Catalog, or Catalogs, please let me know. I would be happy to get you one.

Well, that is it for today. Thanks for sticking by me during my long absence. I will certainly try and keep you up to date on happenings in the near future. Oh, by the way, if you want to place an order online, please use the March Host Code if your order is under $150.00. If more than $150.00 you will receive Reward Credits you can use for more product.

Until next time…

Be kind to one another and make time for Creating With Paper.
