June is Busting!

Hello All!

Let’s take care of the business things first…June is the month that demonstrators can pre-order from the NEW Mini Catalog (formerly the Holiday Catalog)! So, if you have ever thought about becoming a demonstrator let me know! The many perks are unbelievable, and this “pre-order” is one of them. You also get first looks at the catalogs, invites to the many “conventions” Stampin’ Up! offers and so much more. All for $99.00 and you choose $125.00 worth of product for your start up kit. Plus you receive an instant 20% discount on your purchases. Try it out! If it doesn’t quite fit, that is okay! We never want to pressure anyone. You still have purchasing power on my website.

The Mini Catalog will go live to all of you out there July 1st! It goes through January 4, 2023. Geez that sounds so strange – 2023. I remember 2000! Aarrgh!

Take a look at the products that will retire for good on June 30th! Some are 50% off! Can you believe what a bargain that is? They are “as long as supply lasts” so don’t delay!

  • All products are available while supplies last, and there are no purchase limits.
  • Discounted items can be added to a Starter Kit and redeemed as a 50% off item or with Stampin’ Rewards.
  • Only orders opened and closed during the promotion period apply
  • Stamp Sets are not guaranteed during this promotion and are while supplies last
  • Ordering Deadline: 30 June 2022 at 11:50 PM (MT)

Click HERE for a pdf copy of the retiring items list.


It starts July 1 through August 31! For every $50.00 you spend before tax and shipping, you can choose from many “FREE” items. There are items at the $50.00 level, and some at the $100 level. Many coordinate with stamps or dies in the new July-January Mini Catalog! It’s a great way to get the free products.

May Day, May Day!

Hi to all of you! No, I am not issuing a distress call for help (well, maybe! Ha!), just a notice that today is actually May Day! Gosh, can you believe it that the year 2022 is almost half way done?

I just wanted to pop on and let you all know that May 3rd is the day the NEW Annual Catalog will go live to you all! May 2nd (tomorrow) is the last day to order from our 2021-22 catalog. Also, be sure to check out the last chance product list as some of our favorites won’t be back in the 2022-23 catalog. It is sad, but necessary to “retire” some products to make room for some great new things. Click here to see the last chance product list https://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/Promotions/2022/04_Last-Chance-AC/PDF/2021-2022-Annual-Catalog-Last-Chance-Products_US.pdf

If you order products from me and the total before shipping and tax is less than $150.00, be sure to use this Host Code!

We see a real opportunity to reach other types of people whom we believe would benefit from being associated with Stampin’ Up!—perhaps those who don’t consider themselves to be creative, have time or space limitations, or who would love to have fun experiences but aren’t interested in collecting crafting supplies (yet). We want to give these friends a taste of the Stampin’ Up! experience so they can see what we offer and imagine how it could make a positive difference in their lives.

Enter the Kits Collection. These all-inclusive kits were designed for beginner crafters or those looking for a quick creative fix. They are a fun and fast introduction to Stampin’ Up! and all that it has to offer—its creative focus, its active community, and its opportunities for personal growth.

If you are local to me and would like to join my team and my friends craft, please email me at mbshedoudy@gmail.com to get put on my monthly “Sunday Craftin’ Gals Gathering” mailing list. It is a monthly gathering to do fun projects from Stampin’ Up! and enjoy the company of our life long friends. This month’s gathering is May 22nd at Noon.
