NEW Envelope Punch Board Available NOW!!!


Use this creativity-boosting tool to create anything from itty bitty to long and skinny envelopes!
 

ItemDescriptionPrice
133774
Envelope Punch Board
$19.95



  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes (not to mention a million different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It's super easy to use; it will go over as a huge wow when you demonstrate it at your events and your customers see it in action. It looks intimidating at first glance, but when they see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score they'll go crazy (in a good way).
  • It's small and lightweight; this makes it easy for you to take it to your events and show it. It's also a great selling point when you show your customers how it's super portable and easy to store. It's small and light enough that they could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend's for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a slick scoring tool as well as a punch that lets you create rounded cornerson your envelopes.
  • It's easy to keep it all together; the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don't have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won't lose them!).
  • The price is terrific-especially for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year's annual catalog, so it's here to stay.

The Best of Halloween Stamp Set!

Love all of these stamps for Halloween!!

BEST OF 25 YEARS STAMPS

As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, we're bringing back some of our favorite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into 12 sets, which will release-one set per month-during 2013. Even better, along with some great classic images, each "Best of" set will also include a never-before-seen image!
Check back here every month to download a flyer for a new Best of stamp set, and be sure to share it with your customers.
Some things to remember:
  • All Best of stamp sets will include 3-5 images, including a never-before seen image, and will be priced at $14.95.
  • While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month (with a new theme each month), all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
  • A new flyer will be released every month for each new Best of set.
  • All Best of stamp sets are available in Clear-Mount only.
While we are releasing just one Best of stamp set per month, all of the Best of sets will be available until March 31, 2014.
As a special incentive to collect the Best of stamps, we're including a collector's card and 25-year proof of purchase sticker with every Best of set. Collect six stickers, and send it in to redeem a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95! Free sets must be redeemed no later than April 30, 2014.

Thinlits Details

Available August 1, 2013
There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them! Plan to feature these dies in your events and share the video. When your customers see what they can do, they will place their orders.
These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)
With the number of dies you're getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!
  • Promote mass production of these impressive "flip" cards. They would make great announcements, invitations, or Christmas cards. You can even help your customers select all the supplies they will need to create their cards.
  • These Thinlits Card Dies will be available at least through the 2013-2014 catalog year, so you can feel confident investing in them and promoting them for many months to come.  
  • The main shape in the cards (circle and label) can work with a lot of our stamp images so you can create tons of different kinds of cards using many different stamp sets. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started:
Label Card Thinlits Die (item 133479):
  • Happy Day Stamp Set (item 130294 W item 130297 C)
Circle Card Thinlits Die (item 133480):
  • Worth the Wait Stamp (item 131094 W)
  • Five-Way Flower Stamp (item 131088 W)
Both card dies pair well with:
  • Oh, Hello Stamp Set (item 131931 W item 130733 C)
  • Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (item 131341 W item 131344 C)
  • Really Good Greetings Stamp Set (item 130330 W item 130333 C)
  • Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set (item 130324 W item 130327 C)
  • These dies also work well with our new magnetic platform (item 130658) so you can place the dies exactly where you want them!

Bombs Away! Birthday Photopolymer set



Check it out!! 
Stampin' Up! has another great photopolymer stamp set available called Bombs Away Birthday! They are completely clear which makes stamping super easy!



We've searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And we've found it. We're excited to announce that we now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! The new photopolymer will be an addition to our stamp line and will appeal to all types of stampers. Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 

What makes them so great?
  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

New Stampin' Up! Club Starting in MAY 2013

Is your Stampin' Up! Wish list longer then your grocery list?

If you answered yes, then join the club! This Stampin’ Up! Club is a great way to build your collection. Or, if you've never used SU! products before, this would be a great way to start -and you will be hooked!

Here is how this club works:
I am looking for members in groups of 6 who are committed to spending $25.00 in products (before shipping and tax) each month for 6 months. Each month's order will amount to $150 or more which qualifies for the hostess benefits program with Stampin’ Up! You will get at least $25.00 FREE in hostess dollars to spend when it’s your month. Every month we will rotate the hostess who gets the free goodies so that everyone gets them once. Everyone will receive the NEW catalog in the mail or at club when you sign up for this club which will be coming in late May and can be ordered from June 1st. During your month, you can get even greater hostess benefits if you have your other friends order.

When does club happen??
The 3rd Saturday or Sunday of each month from 4pm-6pm, I will host a club “meeting” where you will be able to make 3 FREE projects using Stampin’ Up! Products so you are able to see some things that you may like to purchase for yourself. Orders and payments will be due at this time every month. If you are unable to make it to the meeting in any given month you must have your order to me before club starts so the hostess is able to get her order in!! I will have the entire combined order shipped to me and get your items to you as soon as possible! This club will start on Saturday, May 18th, 2013. Our “meeting” will be at Potbellies Restaurant
3826 S Himes Ave. Tampa, FL 33611
from 4pm-6pm.

How do I join this awesome club????

**If you would like to join but these dates and times don’t work for you, let me know and maybe we can start another club on a different day and time. Club will start May 2013 and end October 2013!
