Retirement List is Here! Paper Pumpkin, All Occasions Card Class & More

Well I’m back from San Antonio. What a great time our group had. On Saturday when OnStage was held, we had a day of stamping demonstrations, business tips and we got the new catalog. It was hard to pay attention after that, LOL. We all went to dinner together, then went back to the hotel to go through the catalog. I don’t think I’ve laughed that much in a long time. On our plane ride home (3 1/2 hours), Patty, Kursten and I went through the catalog again. We really took the time to look at all the lovely samples to see how they were made. We made some fun discoveries. I’ll let you in on one of them. We have a new suite that is called Magnolia Lane. In the dies there is a magnolia flower, but in one of the samples you can see they (SU) also used the Hot Air Balloon Punch (yes, new stamp and punch) for the last layer of the flower. Woohoo! You know how I love to make 3d flowers. I’m sure I’ll be using this flower a LOT. We will  be using this Suite for our Team Meeting on the 27th.

Occasions Catalog

2018-2019 Annual Catalog

Please note, that all the wood mount stamps are retiring, but MIGHT be coming back in Cling. Stampin’ Up! is working on fixing these with an asterisk, so you know they will be reconfigured. I know its sounds confusing.

A couple things to remember: ALL stamp sets are guaranteed available until May 24th. After that they will be while supplies last. Everything else is while supplies last. I recommend ordering the Bundles and save 10%.

Paper Pumpkin’s “Hugs from Shelli” kit coming in May. Check out the video from Shelli, you’ll get a sneak peak of one of the cards in the kit. Sign up for the May Kit HERE!

All Occasions Card Class is this Thursday, I still have room. Let me know ASAP if you’d like to come. Cut off to RSVP is tomorrow. We’ll be making a Mother’s Day, Father’s Day (if you would rather change the sentiment for these cards, I will have alternatives) and and All Occasions card. You will make 2 of each of the 3 designs, envelopes included. Cost: $15 or FREE with a $50 order.

Isn’t this cover of the new catalog stunning? I can hardly put it down…….

This is my haul from OnStage. Not bad! Stampin’ Up! is so generous. When we were done making our makin’ takes, we split up all the supplies between all of us at our table. And that bag! Oh my, its beautiful, heavy canvas and the leaves are stitched on the bag. We received the Daisy Lane stamp set (coming medium Daisy Punch, whoo hoo), file folders, notebook, clip board and pen. Prize Patrol I received the Burch Background stamp and the DSP with the humming birds. The rest is from our make n takes.

We arrived in San Antonio on Thursday, so we took the boat ride down the River Walk after lunch. It was a beautiful day. Not to hot, not to cool.

All in all, it was an awesome OnStage! I will be sharing some of the make n takes soon. I’m having a bit of trouble doing anything but looking at the catalog…..

Lots of Changes are Coming

Today Stampin’ Up! released some exciting new changes.

  • Stampin’ Trimmer is retiring. Problems with our supplier. That means if you wanted to get this trimmer, get it now. Also, if you have the trimmer I would stock up on blades & Replacement Mats. Right now you can only order 3 packages of the Trimmer Blades. Monday you can order 6 packages, until their supply runs out.
  • Stampin’ Up! is working with another supplier. We will be getting a new Trimmer. As to when, we don’t know yet.


  • The Big Shot will NOT be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. We will have another die cutting machine in the feature, again, no dates. Stampin’ Up! is now working directly with the manufacturer who is making our new & improved dies. They will work with the Big Shot and our feature die cutting machine. Might need a shim, depends on your die cutting machine.
  • The new “dies” (they won’t be referred to as, Framelits, Edgelits or Thinlits, just “dies”)will cut closer to the stamped image, so no more white edges. Yeah!
  • The Textured Impressions Embossing Folders will be called, Embossing Folders, the Dynamic Folders will be called 3D Embossing Folders.
  • As products run out ( on retiring products), Stampin’ UP! will not be ordering more, so if there is something you wanted, I wouldn’t wait.
  • The Retirement List will be available on Monday, April 15th. You will notice a LOT of items that are retiring.
  • Don’t forget to stock up on the 2017-2019 In Colors. They are usually the first to go once the retirement list is published.
  • And lastly, there is going to be a slight price increase, .25-$1.00 on some items.
  • One more thing…..Paper Pumpkin is increasing $2.05, for month to month subscriptions, $2. for 1 month pre-paid subscriptions. Price increase starts on the June Kit.
  • Can’t wait to see this stamp set……

I’m going to let you in on a secret….we’ve learned the names of the new In Colors (2019-2021).

Pretty Peacock
Purple Posy
Rococo Rose
Seaside Spray
Terracotta Tile
Don’t they sound awesome? I can hardly wait until Saturday to see the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I hope to be posting on my Facebook page some sneak peaks this week-end.

Storage by Stampin’ Up!

Thank you UPS for delivering my new Storage Units and Club order on a Saturday.

I only ordered a few of the units to test them out. They come very well packaged. Each in their own box.

The Storage Topper even has protection in the box.

Each of the units comes with little feet to put on the bottom.

These are the units I purchased.

And here they are with product in each one. It holds 30 Stampin’ Blends in one unit. Five Ink Pads & Stampin’ Write Markers in the other unit, and the Open Storage holds a lot. You can see I only have 4 small bolts of ribbon in mine. Many more re-inkers can go in the Storage Topper or Baker’s Twine, Metallic Thread, the ideas are endless.

You can see how much more room I have in both Storage Toppers.

I’m loving how sturdy and easy they all go together. You can stack several or not. One thing I should mention, the old style Stampin’ Up! Ink Pads are not made for these units. They will fit, but will be tight and leave a gap.

Stampin’ Up! has told us the inventory is going quick. No idea as to when we will be getting more. They will be in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog coming out in June. Get all the details about these new Storage Units HERE!
