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.
