Happy Saint Patrick’s Day…Think GREEN!

Announcements/ Contests/ Stamping/ Uncategorized

Hey Stampers! Before I head out to a Stampin' Up! party with one of my new team members and her peeps, I wanted to wish you all a Happy Saint Patrick's Day! You know, this is the “day of green” so I thought we should think about Stampin' Up! “greenery” and have a little fun!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day...Think GREEN!

Over the years, we have had quite a few different shades of green in our color collections. What's your favorite Stampin' Up!”Green” – current or past? Mine are Lucky Limeade and Wild Wasabi. Post your answer in the comments section and let's see how many different greens we can name!

Also, did you see the Limerick contest I posted the other day? If not, you can read about it here, and I hope you'll play along. Winner of the contest (NO PURCHASE NECESSARY), will get fifteen handstamped cards with envelopes!

STAMPARATUS WINDOW 2 UPDATESTAMPARATUS WINDOW 2 UPDATE  Happy Friday Stampers! I have some TIGGERiffic news from Stampin' Up! if you reserved your Stamparatus in the Reservation Window 2. This was at the end of 2017. Here is the update direct from SU:

Isn’t it awesome when everything goes pretty much according to plan? We think we can say that about shipments during Stamparatus Window 1, and now we can’t wait for more of our demonstrators and customers to get their Stamparatuses during Window 2.

And we have good news! While we announced that Window 2 would have two different shipment dates—March 20 and one in early April—we’re excited to tell you that all reservations from Window 2 will be ready to ship in March.

Please note that (due to factory shipment schedules) we will stagger our deliveries by market: North America, the South Pacific, and Japan can begin finalizing their orders on Tuesday, March 20, while our demonstrators in Europe—who may experience shipment and customs delays—can begin finalizing their orders approximately one week later.

As you prepare to finalize your order for Window 2, please keep the following in mind:

Take care not to delete the Stamparatus from your order. If it is deleted, we will return it to the order; however, there will be a delay.
You may add other items to your order; also, current promotions will apply depending on when the order is closed. – So if it is during Sale-A-Bration, add to your order and get a SAB item for free!!
Thanks to everyone for their amazing support as we work to get this fantastic stamping tool in the hands of as many demonstrators and customers as possible—before it goes live in the 2018–2019 annual catalog!

I am so  excited about this! I have my Stamparatus and Stamp Slave Dave and I have been busy testing it and figuring out all the tips and tricks to share with you!


You will get an email from Stampin' Up! telling you the Stamparatus has been placed in your shopping cart at my online store. You will just log in at, put in your user credentials and complete your order. ANY questions once you are ready, please call or email me!! I can't wait for you to get your hands on this wonderful new tool!

Retiring Stampin’ Up! 2016-2018 InColor Collection

Announcements/ Sale-A-Bration

Hello Stampers! This week has flown by…it's already Friday Eve! Everyone in my office had bigger smiles near the end of today! I want you to have smiles, too when you make sure to order items in the  Retiring 2016-2018 InColor Collection before they retire… don't wait! Are you totally in love with Dapper Denim or Emerald Envy? Maybe Peekaboo Peach floats your boat. Maybe Flirty Flamingo or Sweet Sugarplum?

Retiring Stampin' Up! 2016-2018 InColor Collection

You might wonder why I'm bringing this up now, since these colors will “technically” be available through the end of May? Here's why. EVERY year items in the retiring InColors seem to disappear first among all the retiring items in our annual catalog, especially the ink refills.  Once they become unavailable, you won't be able to get them.

Oh wait…you can always go to Ebay and pay $50 for one bottle. Yes, you heard me correctly. Some less than scrupulous shoppers snatch up more than they need and then prey on unfortunate ones who didn't get them ordered before the supply was exhausted. Don't let this be you! I'm all for capitalism but gouging people is not okay.

How do you avoid missing out on ink, paper, refills, and/or markers? ORDER NOW. You can also still get free Sale-A-Bration items, so it's a win-win!

I'll be ordering ink refills for my pads, too. I love these colors!! 🙂
