Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deal May 19 2015

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal May 19 2015

I can’t say anything bad about any of these Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals.  All fun products to use in your stamping projects from great designer papers, washi tape, the gorgeous stars to get any early start on holiday cards (really early!!) and more! Of course you can use just the stars for any number of projects.  I think stars are important to have in your arsenal! Think birthdays, congratulations, graduation, etc. The Chalkboard Paper and Chalk Ink are new products that came out in the Occasions Catalog and are fun to play with. Unless Stampin’ Up! carries them over, though, they’re not in the new catalog.

You can add these Weekly Deal products to your order along with any retired products you want!  Remember, time is running out!

Be on the lookout for my mid-month newsletter soon!  If you are not on my mailing list yet, be sure you get on it to keep up-to-date with all things Stampin’ Up! and exclusive project ideas every month! Sign up in the box in the top right of my blog.

New Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal May 5 2015

Here are the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for May 5 through Monday, May 11.  Great punches and ribbons to choose from, plus the cute Sweet Taffy Designer Series Paper! And if you’d like to make your own small gift boxes, the Gift Box Punch Board is for you!

While you are shopping, be sure to check the current Retired List of stamps and accessories:

Stampin’ Up! Retiring List PDF

Since Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying My Digital Studio, the digital design papercrafting software, the software and all the downloads are 30% off! Since the software was already a fantastic price at $20, it is now more than a bargain at only $13.97. I would REALLY suggest you pick this up just to have on hand because the software itself contains SO much artwork and content for you to use. And it is easy enough to learn. Then look through the downloads (or even just pick up some downloads you like to use with just your computer) and choose special things you like and might want to use in the future. My Digital Studio is not just for scrapbooking! You can make anything you like with it!

Check out the downloads available for My Digital Studio and the software!

Starburst Sayings Happy Day Card

Starburst Sayings Happy Day Card

Starburst Sayings is one of the stamp sets on the Stampin’ Up! Retired List that I was so surprised to see on there! It’s a fun stamp set to use and can cover many occasions from congratulations, birthdays, anniversaries, new baby, encouragement, and even weddings. All it takes is using the appropriate colors, papers and embellishments.  Dress it up or dress it down, as they say! You can use circle punches with several of the stamps if you don’t mind punching inside the starburst edges.  Use the matching Starburst Framelits Dies to use with these stamps or just paper.

The Starburst Sayings Stamp Set is discounted on the Retired List right now or you can purchase the Bundle with the stamp set and the framelits and save a little money.

Starburst Saying Stamp Set Images

Here’s another card I made awhile back with one of the other sayings:

Starburst Sayings and Retro Fresh

This card is from last year and has retired paper and trim on it, but you can easily change it with something current.  You can read that blog post HERE.

To shop for any of the Stampin’ Up! Retired products, just go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store HERE.  You can choose Stamps or Accessories. Click the View ALL dropdown box so that you can just scroll through all the products rather than having to go to the next page and the next.

Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for April 28, 2015

 

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal April 28 2015

Click to Shop!

Here are the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for today, April 28 through Monday, May 4, 2015. Wow, is it really going to be May so soon??! Three fun punches, especially the Sweetheart Punch for hearts.  Hearts are like stars – you can always use them!! I just used the Retro Fresh This And That Washi Tape on my card I posted yesterday. This is your chance to get the Fry Box Die at a discount which will make all kinds of cute projects! Pick up some of the gorgeous Hello Honey ribbon before it is gone! And if you haven’t yet tried the Fast Fuse Adhesive, you might want to give it a try with the discount. It might take awhile to get the hang of this adhesive, but I think I have it now and I’m liking it. It’s a little more temperamental than SNAIL Adhesive, but it sticks really well.

Click on the photo or links above to shop.  You can add these items to a regular order along with any current, retired or Clearance Rack products.

You can also add My Digital Studio software or downloads to your order! Remember, My Digital Studio (MDS) is going away, but it doesn’t mean you can’t own it and use it. If you buy the software you will have PLENTY of content to keep you busy for a long time, but you can also choose any of the extra and newer downloads that appeal to you. The good thing about MDS downloads is there is no shipping charge and you can access them immediately!

And I would especially suggest you get the Project Life digital downloads! Not only can you scrapbook and make other projects digitally with these, but if you own the physical card kit and want more copies of a certain card, you will be able to print your own with these downloads.

All MDS downloads are discounted 30%!

Stampin' Up! Retired Products

Yesterday was kind of a crazy, rushed day to say the least with the Stampin Up! Retired List coming out, new Weekly Deals, the Stampin’ Up! website crashing, and an eye doctor appointment to go to in the morning when all this was happening!

So let’s slow it down and take it one step at a time today!

Here is the official Stampin’ Up! Retired List that came out yesterday.  Just click on the links. The print is small and you’ll probably need to zoom in to look at it online.  But keep reading.

  • Retiring List PDF  (this list has been updated since yesterday with x’s in the boxes of products that are Not Available).
  • Retiring List Larger Print Sorted By Page Number (This one is not updated with unavailable products and a few page numbers may be incorrect). But if you want to mark your catalog, this one works better!
  • Easiest perhaps:  Just go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store HERE and you can scroll through the products.  Anything Stampin’ Up! is no longer selling will not be listed or the product number will not work.  Lots of discounts!

Retiring products will only be available until June 2, or while supplies last.  Due to high demand, retiring stamps will be produced by Stampin’ Up! until May 26.

My Digital Studio

My Digital Studio is being discontinued by Stampin’ Up! much to the chagrin of many customers and demonstrators. BUT, if you are interested, all digital products are discounted! It’s not too late to buy the software and have it, especially since it is discounted.  You get SO MUCH CONTENT to use. You can use it to just print out words or greetings.  You don’t even HAVE to use it to scrapbook. Make cards, make party favors, calendars, photo albums, just print out a stamp you don’t own. Check the downloads and see what you want. You CAN use it without the software, but gee, the software now is only $13.97. Such a deal! Even if you just have it on hand!

Clearance Rack

New items were added today on the Clearance Rack, not too many though! Check it out and add anything you want to your order along with your retired items.

New Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals

Here are the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals for April 21 – 27. Add them to your order along with Retiring Products, Clearance Rack, My Digital Studio, everything!

Thinlits Multicolor Butterfly Card

Thinlits Multicolor Butterfly Card

Yes, Stampin’ Up! has the long-delayed Butterflies Thinlits Dies in stock now and ready to order! And to make up for the long delay, Stampin’ Up! has this special offer, available only until April 30:

  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount–just $21.20!
  2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at a 15 percent discount and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!

The background layer on this card is actually made from the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper, which you can choose FREE with the purchase of a Butterflies Bundle. The paper is embossed with white patterns so that when you apply some ink over the paper, the embossed pattern will pop out! Then just wipe with a tissue to clean it off and get off any excess ink.

The multicolored butterfly is made by sponging on several colors of ink on Whisper White card stock and THEN die-cutting with the butterfly thinlit. It will be a surprise what your butterfly will look like! Really fun to do!  Then I placed it over a Tea Lace Paper Doily adhered to the card.  The butterfly has three Candy Dots on its body.

If you want the Butterflies Thinlits, don’t hesitate!  Go get them at my Stampin’ Up! Online Store while you can get a discount!  Be sure to check the Weekly Deals for this week, ending Monday night.Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals April 14, 2015

New Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals April 14, 2015

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals April 14, 2015

Here are the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals good today through Monday April 20, 2015. Click the link or the photo above to view in my store!

With Mother’s Day coming up in May, you might want to pick up the Mother’s Love Photopolymer Stamp Set on the Deals this week! Of course it is not just for Mother’s Day, it can be for any time! And I have to mention the Handheld Stapler – yes, you probably have a stapler, but I just LIKE this cute stapler! (You do need to buy the staples in addition!) Of course all the other framelits and the Pansy Punch are worth owning as well.  If you are in to washi tape, you might want to try the Birthday Bash Designer Washi SHEETS.  You can cut larger pieces, or use framelits, or use them in many creative ways!

Keep in mind, the Retired List is due to come out next week. If you want any of the outgoing In Colors, especially the ink refills if you already have the ink pads, everyone suggests you beat the rush and order them ahead of the Retired List coming out. Those are items that usually sell out fast.

Haven’t heard any more, but Stampin’ Up! was hoping to have the Butterflies Thinlits back in stock tomorrow, April 15 with a special offer, if you missed those during Sale-A-Bration. Stay tuned!

Flower Patch Spring Birthday Card & Last Day Free Shipping!!

Flower Patch Spring Birthday Card

I’ve been thinking about making a flowery spring card. When I found this Whisper White card base with the Daffodil Delight layer already adhered and mixed in with the card stock, it became the start of the card I was going to make. Since the Brights Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack was already out on the table, I just used that for another layer and thought the spring flowers and leaves from the Flower Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set would make the perfect spring card. After you stamp some flowers, you can use the Big Shot and the Flower Fair Framelits Dies to cut the pieces out.  The Flower Fair Framelits Dies are on sale until Monday on the Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals!

A Handmade Berry Basket for Easter

Berry Easter Basket Wildflower Meadow

If you own the Berry Basket Die, you are all set for making cute little Easter baskets! My other berry baskets have been made with card stock or designer paper, but this one is made with Coaster Board and is much sturdier. The Vanilla Coaster Board is described as thinner than chipboard and sturdier than card stock.

I decided to stamp mine with the Wildflower Meadow Stamp SetThis is one large background stamp, which I would recommend you purchase in the wood-mount. Those large stamps are just easier to manipulate on the wood block than sticking on the very large clear block. I colored the flowers and leaves with various Stampin’ Write Markers and then pressed the Coaster Board pieces, after they were die cut, onto the Wildflower Meadow stamp. I had to cover the portion of the Coaster Board basket that I didn’t want stamped.  And think about which way your pattern is going. I stamped different portions of the large stamp on each side of the basket.

Once it was all stamped, I realized that if I attached the usual basket edges around the top, they would cover up some of my stamping!  So I adhered the basket edges to the INSIDE of the basket to hold it together and adhered the Venetian Crochet Trim around the outside top edge of the basket. I tied a separate bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot to the front. I love the way it turned out, if I do say so myself!

Berry Easter Basket Wildflower Meadow

This berry basket won’t even be just for Easter! It’s pretty for any time, especially spring!

Berry Easter Basket Wildflower Meadow

If you are interested in the Berry Basket Die, you can also purchase the Magnetic Platform for the Big Shot to use with framelits and thinlits on Monday, taking advantage of FREE SHIPPING and the Weekly Deal discount ending on Monday!  Hey, with free shipping all next week (Mon, April 6 – Friday, April 10) you can order the Weekly Deals you want on Monday and then order again if there is something you want that comes out on Tuesday!

This Is It, Stampers! Last Day of Sale-A-Bration!

Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration 2015 Catalog

Remember soon after Christmas when we were so excited to see new non-holiday stuff, the new Occasions Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure announcing the biggest promotion of the Stampin’ Up! year?! And now today Sale-A-Bration, at least, comes to an end!

In case you are new to Stampin’ Up!, Sale-A-Bration allows you to choose a FREE product from any of the Sale-A-Bration choices with every $50 that you spend with Stampin’ Up!  Buy $50 in merchandise from Stampin’ Up!, choose one free SAB item!  Buy $100 in stamping supplies from Stampin’ Up!, get two free SAB items! Spend $150 in stamps, paper, ink or accessories and get 3 free SAB products PLUS $25 in Hostess Dollars to buy MORE! No limit to Sale-A-Bration items! You have all day today to shop, but don’t wait until the very last minute!  Expect the Online Store to be slow at times and there could be some glitches.  BUT probably better than years ago!

Here are your Sale-A-Bration Choices:

Sale-A-Bration Original Brochure

New Sale-A-Bration Choices

Even More Sale-A-Bration Choices

If you are undecided about your purchases and need a suggestion or want more SAB items, here’s an idea!  You can order the prepaid 3-month Paper Pumpkin subscription (or more), save $5 on the price, and since it is over $50, earn a free Sale-A-Bration item! Just add it to your regular order. Once you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you will have access to any available past kits if there is something you liked that you missed.

Paper Pumpkin Logo 3 mon Prepaid SAB

You can also purchase My Digital Studio downloads for a little extra (get the Project Life downloads and be able to print out more cards for your memory-keeping!).  Check the Clearance Rack.  Check the New Arrivals (the newest stamp sets introduced recently).

Some people simply stock up on card stock, ink refills, adhesives, or order In Colors or anything they think might be retiring soon and beat the rush!

There are some Stampin’ Up! products that are not able to be ordered today because the backorder is so long, Stampin’ Up! has turned off the product number.  This is only so the customers don’t have to be frustrated with an undetermined wait time due to circumstances beyond SU’s control. So if you try to order something that you KNOW is current and it won’t come up, that could be why. These can change, for better or worse, at any time. It’s rotten that it has happened during Sale-A-Bration. But that’s life! Just make another choice for now and perhaps your desired product will become available a little later on.

And here are the new Weekly Deals for March 31 – April 4, 2015:

Weekly Deal Mar 31 2015

Pretty exciting to see the Big Shot Magnetic Platform on the Weekly Deals!  I use mine all the time with my Framelits. I love the Word Bubbles Framelits, they just look fun to me when I use mine! Good items discounted this week!  Put them on your Sale-A-Bration order today!!

Time to shop! Go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store and put in your order.  Then choose your FREE Sale-A-Bration items and add them to your order.  The website will prompt you if you forget. Email me at Karen@KarenStamps.com if you have any problems or questions or need me to put your order in for you. Remember, the earlier you can get your order in, the better. Just in case there are any glitches with all the last minutes orders going in today!

Spring Has Come to Houston!

Azaleas in Houston Spring 2015

The weather is gorgeous here in Houston, Texas and our azaleas are in full bloom! I just have to show them off! If you are still experiencing snow, I hope this will give you some comfort that spring will soon come to you as well! Perhaps just looking at these beautiful blooms will inspire you to stamp a card with pretty flowers or make you feel like Easter is on its way. There was an older stamp set with a flower stamp that I used to use to look like my azaleas. But any flower stamp that gives you the same feeling as looking at this picture will do!

While you have some free time this weekend, be sure to shop Stampin’ Up!’s catalogs and Online Store and make your list before the end of Sale-A-Bration.  Tuesday, March 31 will be your last day to get your free Sale-A-Bration goodies with each $50 purchase.  No limit on multiple increments of $50! Any current merchandise counts toward the $50, even My Digital Studio downloads, if you need a couple more dollars to reach $50 or $100. My Digital Studio is going away May 31 so purchase any downloads, or the software, that you want before them – might as well do it now and take advantage of Sale-A-Bration! You can still use My Digital Studio even when Stampin’ Up! no longer carries it.

You might consider stocking up on card stock, adhesives, refills, or In Colors that will be retiring in a few weeks.  Beat the rush and avoid a sell-out.

Get Your Paper Pumpkin During Sale-A-Bration!


During Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration you can buy products from the Annual Catalog or the Occasions Catalog or get a pre-paid Paper Pumpkin subscription! For every $50 that you spend, you can choose a FREE Sale-A-Bration product – and, guess what?  The 3-month Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription is on sale $5 off and earns you a Sale-A-Bration item! Just add the 3-month Paper Pumpkin subscription to your order #137859. (Shipping is already included in the Paper Pumpkin kit, and while the SAB item is free, you will be charged minimum shipping if that is all you order – so I suggest adding some other stamping supplies or kits to your order.)

After you place your order, you will receive an email from Stampin’ Up! telling you how to get your Paper Pumpkin subscription set up.  If you ordered one as a gift for someone, you just pass along that information to them. When the three months are up, you can order another prepaid subscription or put in your account information so you will be set up to receive the kits on a monthly basis.

It’s such excitement to receive your red box in the mail and be surprised by what’s inside!  If presentation is important, then Stampin’ Up! got it right because your Paper Pumpkin kit comes all wrapped up as a gift for you!  It’s a gift of time for you to take to make the project inside and enjoy yourself! Follow the directions exactly or strike out on your own with the materials – or a little bit of both!

You can be a non-crafter and still enjoy Paper Pumpkin!  Try something new!  Maybe you want to send a gift to your friend, or your mother, or aunt, or niece, or nephew, or grandma, or granddaughter, or college student, or neighbor. You deserve a papercrafting kit in your mailbox once a month and maybe someone else you know does too!

Just go to my Stampin’ Up! Online Store and place your order for any of the wonderful stamping and papercrafting supplies Stampin’ Up! offers AND add a prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription just like any other item. For every $50 you spend, you will then choose your free Sale-A-Bration item and you have lots to choose from this year!

Stampin’ Up! Updates

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Mar 24 2015

Here are the current Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up! for Tuesday March 24 through Monday March 30.

Also, last week when I was on vacation, there was an announcement about My Digital Studio (MDS). This program has been evaluated by Stampin’ Up! and determined that this product has not been as successful as Stampin’ Up! had hoped.  Therefore, it will no longer be offered after May 31, 2015. If you own MDS you can certainly still continue to use it and have your products printed anywhere other than the SU printer. Stampin’ Up! will no longer offer support, although if you ask your demonstrator about any questions or problems, we may be able to find out the answer for you within our demonstrator community. Be sure you have downloaded all the downloads you have purchased (I need to do this!) before May 31 and it is suggested you have everything backed up because you will not be able to go back to Stampin’ Up! to download again. You can use the SU Printer up until May 31 (I need to do this too!). I hate to see MDS go, as do a lot of demonstrators and customers, but I didn’t use it as much as I intended to and maybe that was true with a lot of people.

However, for your memory-keeping, we do have Project Life by Stampin’ Up! created by Becky Higgins that is very easy to use! Stampin’ Up! continues to bring us exciting new products so while I am sad to see MDS go, change is a part of life and stamping! Just be sure you purchase any downloads (or the software) before May 31 and if you have any projects you have made but not printed, have them printed by the SU printer before May 31. You can always print things yourself or have them printed at other local businesses.

Remember, Sale-A-Bration comes to an end March 31, a week from today!

Oh No!!!

Butterfly Berry Basket

Butterfly Berry Basket

I may not have the fancy dishes and table decorations that I saw on the Houston Azalea Trail last Friday, but at least I can make my own basket with the Berry Basket Die and decorate with the Butterflies Thinlits Dies #137360.

I got this idea from the sample in our demonstrator magazine, Stampin’ Success. Mine is made a little differently, but I copied the main elements. Stampin’ Up! made their sample with Coaster Board, a heavier material that would truly be better for making a sturdy basket. Rather than stamping a smaller butterfly, I just die cut the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper available during Sale-A-Bration. The larger butterfly is die cut from the paper in the Sweet Taffy DSP.

Here are the new Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals!

Stampin' Up! Weekly Deal Mar 10 2015

It’s always fun to see the new Weekly Deals! Stock up on two colors of Baker’s Twine and the bright and happy All Abloom DSP Paper Stack. If you’re looking for spring, get the Wildflower Meadow Stamp Set and matching embossing folder. There’s also Gold Glitter for pizzazz and you’ll love the Cotton Ribbon!

The Butterflies Thinlits Dies, as  I write this, are backordered and they can’t be ordered at this time. As soon as Stampin’ Up! gets more in stock, they will turn the number back on.

In the mean time, you can purchase the Berry Basket Die and any of the Weekly Deals in the Stampin’ Up! Online Store!
