Last Chance to Grab a Deal in June

The clock's ticking and time is quickly running out on Stampin' Ups! June promotion - Grab Your Greetings 25% Off Deal.  Time's up at 10:00pm tonight so don't miss out.  

Ready, Set Send Card Kits



Ready. Set. Send. is a package of ten pre-made cards (five each of two handmade designs--shown here) and ten envelopes. 

This is the perfect card kit for those of you who want to be "hands on" but feel you don't have enough time to create your own cards or come to a workshop.  

I think this kit would also make a perfect gift.  How about a gift for someone you think wants a new hobby but may not be ready to try their hand at stamping just yet?  It's just a little taste without a big commitment!
 

What You Need to Know:

Stampin' Up is offering a limited amount of these card kits and they'll only be sold while supplies last.  The Ready. Set. Send. card kits are only available in North America, and because the cards are in English, they will not be offered in Qu├ębec.

Holiday Sets Still Available

Christmas is coming......



Don't you just hate it when we reach June 25th and some cheery person says ".....Christmas is just six months today!"  

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Christmas, but that statement literally makes my heart skip a beat knowing just how much there is to do.  With Christmas just lurking around the corner, I become super excited and get into the "Christmas in July mode".  

When this feeling comes upon me I start pouring through the new annual catalogue, looking for ideas and checking out the seasonal stamps and accessories so I can decide what I'm going to make and what I need to order. I begin talking to my customers and demo friends to see what they're interested in and just can't live without.   Yes, I'm making my lists and checking them twice!  But this year the holiday stamps that I love were missing from my catalogue and I thought what am I going to do?

No fear!  I just recevied a reminder that athough Stampin' Up! has a fantastic holiday catalogue on its way (trust me I've seen it), they also have some of your Christmas season favourites from last year's autumn/winter catalogue still available to satisfy those summer card making urges.  

These carry-overs include the fabulous Ornament Keepsakes Stamp Set and the coordinating Framelits Dies (which were mistakenly added to the Retired List, but are still available).   Yeah.......... I'll be able to do my "Christmas Ornament Keepsakes" class in August!

So, if you're like me and want to take advantage of some of these carry-overs and start your planning then click here to download the pdf and see what's available!

Label Pop 'n Cuts Die Unavailable



June 21, 2013
Have you been admiring all the cards made with the Label Pop 'n Cuts Die (item 130160), introduced in the 2013-2014 annual catalogue on page 188, well I have too.  

Unfortunately I just learned through Stampin’ Up!®  Demo Updates that this die was incorrectly produced.  Apparently the die cuts instead of scoring across the score line. Sounds like our hockey team doesn’t it?  
 
 The Stampin’ Up!® supplier is currently working to repair this defect and replace the  inventory. In the meantime, until Stampin’ Up!® receives the new dies and ensures they are correct, the item number has been turned off.
Stay tuned. 

I’ll keep you in the know when the new Label Pop ‘n Cuts Dies are available.  Oh and don’t worry if you’ve already ordered one, your die will automatically be shipped to you when it’s available.  

Note:  You can still get the Card Base Pop n' Cuts #130099 and the Dress Form Pop N' Cuts #130100 Dies.........nothing wrong with either of them!
