Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini Catalog Walk Through

Holidays / Special Days/ Papercrafting

Happy Mini Catalog Release Day! Well…it's not an “official” day but here in my stamping vortex it might as well be! Everyone is SUPER excited about all the awesome new products.

If you've been stamping with me for awhile, you know I was over the moon about last year's holiday mini catalog. This year has topped that one by…oh my gosh…TONS!

I was going to post a walk through of me and a lot of my new products. But, our fabulous CEO, Sara Douglas just did one so I thought I'd treat you all to her…enjoy!

Mini Catalog walk through! ❤️

Not Too Early!

Announcements/ Holidays / Special Days/ Join My Team/ Papercrafting

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!”
