October Newsletter

Happy Fall!

Today brings us a new monthly newsletter. My how time flies! Plus, can you believe all of the fun products that Stampin’ Up! keeps releasing? You’ve come to the right place to catch up.

But first, a project.

Monthly Project

Today’s project uses a lot of items from the Holiday catalog. Plus, one of the newest products that I told you about the last time. I got this idea from Patty Bennett. I must say, though, once you start making projects like this, the ideas start to roll (sometimes slowly, but they do eventually roll!).


Stamp set: Joyful Christmas wood-mount (Holiday catalog)

Ink: Island Indigo

Paper: Smoky Slate textured cardstock (Holiday catalog), Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Winter Frost DSP Stack (Holiday catalog)

Accessories: Envelope punch board, Frosted Finishes Embellishments (Holiday catalog), Silver 1/8″ ribbon (Holiday catalog), Sticky strip

The front layer with the tab creates a pocket for the tags. You can also put a gift card inside.

Even though the Envelope Punch Board has been super popular, and is currently on backorder (expected to clear up mid-month), I’d like to offer you this: For anyone that purchases the Envelope Punch Board from me, in the months of October and November, I will send a kit to make this card. All you will need is adhesive and your own stamp set (I am not allowed to make kits with stamped images). You will get instructions, too, of course. How does that grab you?

Everyday Occasions Card Kit


Another new product just released by Stampin’ Up! is the Everyday Occasions Card Kit. You get clear-mount stamps, ink pads, acrylic block, pre-cut card pieces, envelopes, and embellishments to create 20 cards for five different occasions. It is everything you need, except for adhesive and a pair of scissors, all for $29.95 (plus shipping and tax).

Sound exciting? Imagine, having supplies on-hand to create a handmade card for most occasions. You don’t have to do any prepping, and the kit also comes with suggested ways to put the cards together. Check it all out in the flyer. You can also find it in my online store.

Last Chance for Single New Color Markers

If you want to update your marker collection with the colors brought back (or introduced) in this year’s Color Refresh, you will want to purchase them by the end of this month. Stampin’ Up! has made available for a limited time these marker colors newly added to the core colors. This gives you a chance to update your collection, while eventually freeing up warehouse space for more goodies!

The new colors are:

  • Blushing Bride
  • Pear Pizzazz
  • Soft Sky
  • Pool Party
  • Calypso Coral
  • Wisteria Wonder
  • Island Indigo
  • Crushed Curry
  • Smoky Slate
  • Bermuda Bay

Note: Smoky Slate will continue to be available as a single marker, as shown in the Annual catalog. You can also still purchase all colors together as a bundle (at a slight discount over buying them singly).

Get them while you can! Prices and item numbers are available in the flyer or at the onine store. (Note the online store will show all markers available for purchase, including markers normally available singly.)

Party More. Get More.


This month, get $25 more in hostess dollars when you host a workshop that totals at least $250 (before shipping and tax)! This offer is valid on all order types. Contact me today to schedule a workshop. You can even do a “book party” with the new hostess code.

Join for $25


For a limited time, the Starter Kit will be available for just $25. Just think; you can reap all of the benefits of being a demonstrator (stamping friends, a discount, advance peeks at new products, etc.), for very little out of pocket expense.

This offer will be available from October 7 to 21 (and the regular Starter Kit will NOT be available during this period). You will receive all of the business supplies normally in the kit, and you will be able to choose $25 to $26.95 in Stampin’ Up! products.

We care currently in the beginning of a new quarter, so you won’t have to make your first quarterly minimum until March 31, 2014! With Sale-a-bration in the first quarter of 2014, that should be a breeze, right?

Contact me if you have any questions on being a demonstrator. I can also help you get started. The whole process can be done online.

More Photopolymer Stamp Sets


As we finish off Summer and head into Fall, Stampin’ Up! brings us three new photopolymer stamp sets. Two of these sets work together (but can be used separately), to create projects for travel, moving, or even “thinking of you”. You can view the stamps in the Greetings flyer and the Map flyer.


The third photopolyer set is just in time for you to create spooky treats and projects for Halloween. The stamp set is called Bite Me. The flyer is here.

All three stamp sets are in the New Arrivals page at my online store.
