Tuesday Updates

Hi there Stamping Friends!

Have you missed me? Sorry I haven’t been blogging that much, since my diabetes crisis last month I am taking time to exercise and eat healthy everyday… boy does that take much more time than I thought. I was attempting to walk in the woods near me, but too buggy/muddy and I didn’t want to ruin my new sneakers. I joined Planet Fitness and enjoy going there, but sometimes I just want to think and not be surrounded by all that noise. This is a new favorite walking spot- outdoor track at a local high school, love it!

Thanks for all your good wishes- this new life style, combined with Plexus nutritional products, have really helped me more than I thought possible. (let me know if you want to know more about Plexus).

Onto some timely news about Stampin’ Up!:

We are in our final week of the 2014-15 Annual Catalog and final week of the 2015 Occasions Catalog… time sure does fly, doesn’t it? Some people have said they are confused about the dates of the catalogs… Stampin’ Up! is trying something new this year. For one day only- next Tuesday June 2nd- you can order from ALL THREE CATALOGS! This is a big deal in case you are trying to get your last chance retiring items, or want to save some pennies (slight price increase in the new catalog), or you have a big order and want to earn under the old hostess rewards (as of June 3rd, the new rewards take effect). So this is a busy transition day, and the first chance you will have to order from the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalog.

It’s not too late to get the retiring stamps and some accessories are still available, and marked down! Click here for the most up to date options:

Today also launches the new “Weekly Deals”- I seriously love how Stampin’ Up! picks out some things I “need” for 25% off! Here are the new deals- I have an order going in this week, let me know if you need any of these too:

(The Large Kraft Grid Journals are awesome and if you buy them now, you can use them for party favors, or holiday gifts! they are NOT carrying over to the new catalog, so get them while they last!)

 

Also- I want to remind you of the half off deal for new Paper Pumpkin subscribers! That’s right, subscribe by June 10th (midnight Mountain time) and you will only pay $10 for June and July’s awesome craft kits in the mail! I seriously LOVE Paper Pumpkin kits- absolutely everything you need for a fun creative outlet is included (well, except scissors, you have a pair of those, right?) These kits are a hit with children, people who have limited space, seniors, and those just starting with card making/papercrafting. Oh, and people who are TOO BUSY to craft, these kits are perfect- open, stamp, assemble and you have a card or project all ready to go! (Less time than driving to the Hallmark Store for sure!) Plus- you can use the stamps over and over- they come with a clear block and you can decorate other cards or envelopes or make your own stationary! The possibilities are endless!

The May Kit is so awesome- 6 fun birthday cards and 6 gift bags!! I hope this will be available as a refill kit! (we have lots of our past kits still available for purchase and many have refill kits- no stamps or ink, but excellent if you want to duplicate the cards/projects with the ink/stamps you already have! Have a favorite kit? Ask me how to get a refill- I’m happy to help you!)

bogo sale

Last but not least- I want to remind you of our HUGE BOGO SALE- We are up to 7 members of my team selling our retired Stampin’ Up! and other Craft Supplies to YOU! The way our BOGO works may be different from others- here’s how we do it: Come to the Burnt Hills United Methodist Church (816 Route 50, Burnt Hills, NY 12027 across from Gil’s Garage) on Saturday June 6th from 9:30 am to 1 pm. You will shop around the room from all of our tables full of retired goodies. Go to the check out table, we will give you the total of “FREE” NEW catalog products you get to pick out- you will go to the catalog table and will get to pick out anything you want equal to what you just picked out of the retirement sale- that’s truly a Buy One Get One Free deal that’s too good to pass up!! Then we add tax and shipping to the total of new products you picked out, and you pay us- cash customers will get to pick out from a free box (while supplies last), we also accept local checks, and credit cards. You can have your items shipped directly to you for an extra $6.95 (or 10%, depending on your total). You take home the retired goodies, and we will order and deliver the new items once they come in (around June 16-19th depending on UPS shipping time from Utah). We are so excited and hope you are too!!

Some other great things to know about the Big Shot:
Currently, the Big Shot utilizes two types of dies: Steel Rule and Chemically-Etched.

Steel Rule: When you think of steel rule dies, think of cookie cutters–they both work on the same principle. Steel rule dies are made by embedding an elongated razor blade into a hard wood base and then covering that blade with foam for safety. When the die is passed through the Big Shot, the foam is compressed and the blade punches through the material being cut. Because steel rule dies use a blade, you can cut more types of material as well as multiple layers of that material. Additionally, the blades can also be designed with scoring blades to create fold lines in materials.

Chemically Etched: Unlike steel rule dies, chemically etched dies can cut intricate designs. To create these dies, elaborate designs are etched into the metal using chemicals to burn away the unwanted metal. While these dies can create more intricate designs, they cannot cut as many types of materials nor can they cut multiple layers of material.

Another good thing to know is that if you have dies from other companies they will work in the Big Shot! The Big Shot is the most versatile die-cutting machine on the market today. Using the multi-purpose platform, you can use dies, embossing plates, and other products from a wide variety of sources.

Why am I telling you all of this stuff about my favorite of ALL my tools in my craft room (you might be wondering)?? Because I want to help you get the best tool on the market!

Still not convinced that YOU NEED a Big Shot? How’s this great video to show you quick and simply bows!

Or, my personal new favorite addition to our Big Shot lineup: THINLITS!
