Mini JJ Catalog Retiring List with Discounts AND New Kits Collection

Hello Stamping Friends,

Hostess code for June:  YQHHJA29

With the start of the month of June comes two special new events:

  1.  The retiring items in the JJ catalog- some with 50% discounts- are now available for ordering
  2.   The new kit program is up and running and you can order kits

Tell us the details quick so we can order before they sell out!

The JJ Mini Catalog (JJ for Jan-Jun) expires on June 30.  Pam Snyder has taken the list from the Home Office and made it more readable.  There is an Excel spreadsheet with four sheets to choose from –

  1. By Category
  2. By % of Discount
  3. By page #
  4. By French products

The tabs for the sheets are at the bottom of the Excel spreadsheet.

Pam also reformatted the home office file as a pdf file so we can look at it that way.

Last Chance_Jan-Jun-2021-Mini-Catalog-Last-Chance-Products_discounted Excel File

LARGE FONT_Jan-Jun-2021-Mini-Catalog-Last-Chance-Products_discounted PDF File

I bet you had to pay her a lot for those files.  It took a lot of work to reformat. 

No, Sal, she made them available to all of us on the Facebook Demonstrator page.  Thank you, Deb Snyder!  “The generous soul will be made rich!”

Stampin’ Up! has a brand new option for kits.  They used to have kits in their catalogs but now there is a special website where you can order kits and never be afraid that they are sold out.  If it shows on the website –it is available!  As kits sell out new kits will be added on a regular basis so check back often!

Stampin’ Up! has taken the guess work out of creativity and done the hard parts, and you get to do the fun stuff: craft!  Each kit is all-inclusive and includes the predesigned projects, preprinted pieces, and even the adhesives you need to complete the projects.  With some kits you have inks and with others all the parts are preprinted for you.  You choose what you like!

Does this mean Paper Pumpkin kits are going away?

Not at all, this is just a different option and some of these first kits are actually popular kits that Paper Pumpkin sold.  The nice thing is that you get to see what you are ordering.  With Paper Pumpkin your kit is always a surprise and some crafters need to know what they are getting without the surprise.  I have found that Paper Pumpkin just keeps getting better and better and the surprise kits are beyond my expectations.

Annual Catalog Scavenger Hunt/Crossword Puzzle

Hello Stamping Friends,

Our new hostess code is:  2Y6MCX4J to be used if you would like to order and your order is under $150.  At $150 you earn the hostess rewards yourself!  Thank you for choosing me as your demonstrator!

On May 4 I am holding an In-house open house catalog launch.  I will start at 10:00 and the house will close at 7:00.  There will be food (and chocolate of course) and you will have a chance to work with the new In Colors by making a bookmark for your catalog and a simple make and take card with new products. 

I would have to have a magnifying glass to read that!

You are right, Sal!  Folks, click HERE to go to the DBWS event page to read this and respond if you are able to come.

I will have a raffle bag and you can earn a ticket by completing this crossword puzzle.  If you don’t have a catalog be sure and join me next Tuesday and I will get you one and you can do the crossword at the event.  Lots to do but plenty of time!!

Free Shipping for 24 hours only, March 17

Hello Stamping Friends,

 

The hostess code for March is :  A3BVB4QZ. Use this code if your order is under $150.  Over $150 and you will receive the hostess rewards yourself.  The code lets us combine all the small orders so we don’t leave hostess dollars on the table.

From what catalogs can I still order?

Good question, Sal.  We have lots of options for tomorrow’s free shipping.  I have linked them up here:

-The Jan – June Mini catalog has oodles of awesome products available until June 30

-The Annual Catalog is valid through May 3.  Though we don’t know yet what stamp sets are retiring, we do know all the In Colors for 2019-2021 are retiring and all their matching products- ink, reinkers, cardstock, and embellishments so you may want to get these retiring products tomorrow with free shipping.  These colors retire:

  • Rococo Rose
  • Terracotta Tile
  • Pretty Peacock
  • Seaside Spray
  • Purple Posy

Stampin’ Up! usually retires all the designer series paper  (DSP) at the end of each catalog.

-The Beginner Brochure is valid through May 3.

-The Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick specials are valid through June 30.

-The Butterfly Bouquet special is available through May 3, after which the stamps and dies will be available in the new Annual Catalog but the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper (DSP) and the Natural Touch Specialty DSP will be gone forever. The dies cut out beautiful butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou DSP.

You should post the cards you made at your stamp a stack with those butterflies cut out from the DSP.

Right-O!  Stay tuned for the next post!

  • And there is also the Clearance Rack with a few items still available.

Check them all out and order with free shipping starting at one minute after midnight tonight.  I am going to have my order ready and waiting so I can just hit the submit button.

The hostess code for March is :  A3BVB4QZ.

Thank you for spending some time with me today.  If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would be honored to help you with your crafting needs!  Click on little Sal in the computer to go to my online store.

SAL,   Shipping A Lot tomorrow for free

Butterfly Brilliance

Hello Stamping Friends,

Stampin’ Up! has a new offering this month that is so cheerful we won’t be sad about the end of Sale-A-Bration!

Drum Roll………

Butterfly Brilliance Bundle

.

The ‘Butterfly Brilliance’ stamp set and ‘Brilliant Wings Dies’ are a sneak peak of products in the new annual catalog coming May 4!  However,  the ‘Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper’ and the ‘Natural Touch Specialty Paper’  will only be available through May 3 so get them now and get 10% off the bundle!  Use hostess code A3VBV4QZ.

I have openings left at the Stamp A Stack on March 10th at 10:00 or at 1:00.   You will make two cards with this bundle and two with the Hey Birthday Chick Bundle. Space is limited to four people per session so sign up soon.  Cost is $15.  You can also order the card kits from me with full directions and get the bundles online at my store to have the stamps.  The Take A Break Tuesday Facebook Live, March 9, 9:30, will guide you through construction of the four cards.  Text 303-815-0838 to RSVP for the March 10th event or to order the kits.

Can we peak?

Of course!

 

This is a unique stamp set with dies.  All the butterflies are connected on the cling stamp and one of the dies has all the butterflies connected as well, so you can stamp them and then cut them out with one fell swoosh of the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine.  The dies also have the individual butterflies to cut them out in beautiful detail.

Even better is the designer series paper with sheets of paper that have the butterflies perfectly aligned on the sheets to cut out with the die.  There are 8 sheets per design so you will have lots of butterflies from the paper before you need to stamp butterflies.  Of course some of the other designs on the paper have a beautiful water color look and you may want to stamp your butterflies and water color them to match!  So many options with this special set offered just in time for spring (March 20) and Easter (April 4).

Here’s another look at the Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Bundles we will be using at the Stamp A Stack:

Hey, I see a little baby chick in those dies that is an extra die beyond the stamps!

He is cute Sal, and the Happy Birthday die and streamers can be used on many cards!  Of course we could build a whole barnyard scene with the fence and chicken coop, chicken wire, and corn stalks!   Check out these samples and visit Pinterest for more…

Join me March 10 to make two butterfly and two chick cards!

Use hostess code A3VBV4QZ if you would like to order these this month!

SAL,   Share A Love of stamping with someone today

The New Mini Catalog Is Live!!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Be sure and click on the title to go to the full website if you are on a mobile device.  I have some product videos to share and they don’t seem to work unless you click on the email and then click on the header.  It’s like going through a secret portal!

Hostess Code for August:  HKVNWPPX   Use this when your order is under $150.

The New Mini Catalog Is Live!!  

Product List for projects in the Mini Catalog

Click above on the catalog cover for a pdf of the entire catalog that you can scroll through at your leisure.  It will also be posted in the “Catalog” tab so you can go to that tab and plan your parties or gift giving when you are sitting and waiting for an appointment or getting out of the hot sun and drinking tea on the deck – at Maui or a cruise ship or……

Creativity hits when you least expect it – look at me!! 

Yep!  So you’ll never leave your catalog behind if you have Stampalosopher on your phone. You do have us bookmarked don’t you?

Click on each of the following screen shots to see a Youtube intro to the new product suites:

  

   

I like the little cups of cocoa best!  

Me too, Sal, and I ordered enough to do neighbor gifts and coworker gifts for my husbands crew!  I will fill them with the mini chocolate pretzels that I make:

  • Square pretzels
  • Hugs candies (one package has about 75 pieces)
  • M&Ms

Preheat oven to 200*.  Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and then carefully line up your square pretzels on the pan. (Just eat the broken ones; you need the whole ones.) Place one hug candy on each pretzel and place in the oven for 2-5 minutes.  Time varies depending on the temperature of your candy; if it was frozen it will take longer; if it has been setting out it will take less time.  Watch for the tip to start melting down.  Remove and promptly put an M&M in the center of each hug.  Place in the refrigerator to cool.  Here is a picture of some I made in Thanksgiving colors and mixed with a batch of Rice Krispie treats for neighbor gifts.

Contact me if you need a catalog – the annual or the mini.  If the catalog got thrown out with the junk mail I will get you another.  email:  stampalosopher@gmail.com or text 303-815-0838.

I need orders by tomorrow if anyone would like card kits for the August 11 Facebook Live.  Club Members receive them automatically.  We will make two cards for club and two extra projects to celebrate products from the new catalog.  Kits are $10.

These are the products I will be using on August 11th.  The kits won’t have stamped images but I will give you die cuts that you can stamp with your own Christmas greeting.  You do have a stash don’t you?

We will play with decorating the envelopes:

And make cards with fun cutout borders:

And make a little gift box:  (I have seen five different ways to make this little box)

 

Mark your calendar for August 11 at 9:30 and join us for a Facebook Live.
