Not Too Early!

Announcements/ Holidays / Special Days/ Join My Team/ Paper crafting

Doesn't it seem strange to be talking about Christmas when September just BARELY got here? It does to me, but I know that by the time I can blink twice, it's gonna be here!

Hi All!

Dave, (a.k.a. The Stamp Slave), here. I figured I'd jump in and help out so that, when the next Stampin' Up! incentive trip comes up, I can point back to this post and say, “Yes! Really! I helped!” That's worth a trip to Maui, isn't it?? LOL… (By the way, sure would be ‘funner' if some of y'all came along with us on some of these fabulous trips! Ask Anne how…)

The new Stampin' Up! 2019 Holiday Catalog will be out on Thursday and it's spectacular, as usual! I'll be spending some time tomorrow getting the picture together and setting up the link so that you'll be able to click and go right to the download page! Be sure to come back on Thursday morning to see what a marvelous job I've done! 😉 Then, click the link, (it will be in the sidebar on the right), and download the catalog so you can see what I mean.

I've attached a picture above of a project done with the, “Wrapped In Plaid Suite”. The Wrapped In Plaid Suite is available in the new catalog. If you want the whole thing, you'll get the stamp set, punch, DSP, ribbon, some brightly-colored “Jingle Bells”, and some gold mini pizza boxes. If you want a bit less than that, there's the Bundle, which includes the stamp set and punch. Or… if you just want a couple of things, they are all individually available. Just let us know how we can help.

And please remember, when it comes time to pack for Maui, please back me up. Just say, “He DID help!”

How to Reserve a Product Share:

NOTE: I have a system for product shares. I take reservations, send invoices via Paypal, collect payments, place the order with SU, receive order from SU, cut and sort product, package up product shares and mail. ..whew! The entire process takes approximately two weeks after I place my order with Stampin' Up! My order will be placed June 4th (first day of annual catalog). I will plan to mail the shares out no later than June 25  (assuming no backorders from Stampin' Up!)

EMAIL ME directly at anne@stampmaven.com with your product share reservation information listed below:

Please include the following information in your email:
1.  Full Name
2.  Mailing Address (US only)
3.  Indicate which share(s) you would like to reserve
4.  Email address for Paypal invoicing
 
When your share(s) fill (I have to have a minimum number of reservations for each share. As one fills, I will open up others to hopefully accomodate everyone who would like to participate), I will email a Paypal (*) invoice to you, by June 3, to complete the payment process.  Your order will not be considered complete until I receive your payment.

I will then place my order with Stampin' Up!  Upon it's arrival, I will sort, cut, wrap/assemble, package and mail.

(*) I use Paypal for all my billing.  However, you do not need a Paypal account to make your payment.  All you need is an email address and credit/debit card.  When you receive my Paypal invoice, you can choose to pay using your paypal account or by credit/debit card.  Just follow their “easy peasy” instructions to make your payment via the method that works best for you

Questions? Please do email me! These shares are very popular and fill up quickly so make your reservation soon!

Keep Your Stamps From Falling Off Clear Blocks!

Announcements/ Paper crafting

Happy New Year Stampers! I'm here today with some exciting news! I'm going to share how to keep your stamps from falling off clear blocks. The solution…CLING stamps!

Keep Your Stamps From Falling Off Clear Blocks!

I'm sure you've experienced the same thing I have, when I've inked up a stamp and then just before stamping on the paper…poof…off falls the stamp and lands on the paper in an unplanned spot! This is so frustrating, right? Well, I've got some great news for you!

With the release of Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog comes the release of our NEW Cling Stamps. These new stamps were tested in our Japan market and I've also had the chance to use them for about a month. They truly are a game changer!

Please watch this short video so you can see why I'm so excited to share this news:

Awesome, right? Our classic red rubber stamps are now better than ever! They are the same high quality rubber material you've always loved but now they come with an adhesive image label that will cling like crazy to your clear blocks (annual catalog page e206) OR Stamparatus clear plates (annual catalog page 207) each and every time you use them!

From now on, our stamps will either be “cling” or photopolymer; our large background stamps will also come with a wood option.

You can check out all the new stamp sets in the occasions catalog at my online store OR open any of our catalogs by clicking on the sidebar here on my blog.
