It’s all a surprise but soon we will start receiving our kits in the mail, but only if you have signed up by October 10.

New Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog 2017 Starts Friday, September 1st!

SU Merry Patterns Host and Sample
Merry Patterns Host Stamp SetFinally the day is coming!  The new Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog begins tomorrow, Friday September 1, 2017! If you have already received a Holiday Catalog, you have probably been pouring over it since you opened your mailbox! If you do not have a catalog, you will be able to view the catalog online or visit the Online Store HERE at this link.  If you click that link tomorrow, you will see all the Holiday Catalog products in the store, but they are not there yet today!

One exciting thing that will start tomorrow is this special promotion from Stampin’ Up!  If you host a party or gather some orders together with friends or make your own big order (not just from the Holiday Catalog) that total $300 or more, you will receive this free, exclusive stamp set called Merry Patterns.  This stamp set is only available through this promotion and the promotion lasts through October 31.

Catalogs and Hurricane Harvey:

I have a few extra Holiday Catalogs here, all untouched by Hurricane Harvey! Even if it was a wet copy I’m sure you would enjoy it!  If you need a Demonstrator and a Holiday Catalog, please just send me an email with your contact information at Karen@Karenstamps.com. I will get one out to you as soon as we have mail again! If you also want the main annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog if you don’t have one, I’d be happy to send you a complimentary copy of that, too.

We haven’t heard yet when the post offices will open and when we will have mail delivery. It’s not even just about the local post offices, its about the main office and the transportation bringing mail in and taking it out, all of which is disrupted. Just haven’t heard much about it yet.

We were fine at our house, no flooding, no power loss, but of course such a huge area of Texas is affected. I’d advise getting your car filled with gas wherever in the country you live as gasoline prices will go up since several refineries in Texas got hit by Hurricane Harvey. They say last year from January to August we got around 50 inches of rain —- during Hurricane Harvey over a few days most areas got 50 or more inches! We think we got about 35 inches at our house since Friday when it first started raining and it didn’t stop until Tuesday evening. Almost constant during that time, whether drizzle or heavy bands of rain for hours. But we are fine which is an incredible blessing to be home!

Here are a few Stampin’ Up! videos to get a taste of some of the new products in the Holiday Catalog!

Of course you can shop at Stampin’ Up! today if you want to, but if you wait until tomorrow, September 1st, you can order any of the products from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog. I will have a link to it on my blog tomorrow!

You can click this link today or tomorrow to shop. If you click it tomorrow, you will see the new Holiday Catalog products in my Stampin’ Up! Online Store!

Select products have discounts up to 50% off!  All current Bundles are retiring as “Bundles” although some stamp sets and dies have carried over into the new catalog but will be available separately. So if the Bundle is still available now, get it for 10% off. If both stamp set and dies are on sale, check the math to see which is the better deal.

Shopping Is Good at Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Retirement Banner Sun Is Setting 2017

Shopping is good at Stampin’ Up! and only going to get better! There are stamps and products retiring to make room for new stamps and accessories. Some are discounted up to 50% off. All Bundles are retiring although some of the stamp sets and dies individually are not retiring, they just won’t be in a Bundle in the new catalog.  However, a few are cheaper if you buy them on sale individually rather than in the Bundle.  

Here’s an example:

Basket Bunch Photopolymer Bundle  Reg. 46.75

Products are only available while supplies last, except for stamp sets, which Stampin’ Up! manufactures, so they will be available through May 22.

Stampin' Up! Clearance Rack Banner 2017

Last week Stampin’ Up! added a ton of products to the Clearance Rack!  A lot sold out the first day and more in the following days!  However, the Clearance Rack is still open for business so be sure to check it out!  You can add Clearance items to any Stampin’ Up! order!

Eastern Palace Suite Banner

The Eastern Palace Suite is a new group of products being released to customers on May 1, 2017!  If you can’t wait until June for the new catalog, this is your chance to get your hands on many of the new products coming in the new catalog!  You will have two choices of Bundles of products! Check back tomorrow for all the details!

These two Bundles will be available May 1 – 31 and after that the items may be purchased separately!  Notice that you get something FREE in each Bundle! Honestly, the Eastern Medallion Thinlit Dies are the real treasure in the Suite, in my opinion, so I would suggest the Premier Bundle.
