Hot off the Press!

Well, I promised you the latest news from the wonderful world of Stampin' Up! and here it is,  hot off the press!
Stampin' Up!® has just made a HUGE announcement which all demos and many customers have been waiting a long time to hear. We will be getting a greater alignment with the US market!
In future we will have one Annual Catalogue ( no longer called the Idea Book & catalogue, but still showing fabulous ideas from SU designers) and two seasonal catalogues; an Autumn/Winter and a Spring/Summer. And what's exciting  is that they will be BIGGER and that the product offering will be almost the same as the USA! Barring the My Digital Studio (MDS) section
.

See below for details of the next few catalogues you can expect and their publication dates:

Autumn/Winter Catalogue
Dates: 1st Sept 2012 until 30th Jan 2013.
Size: About 40 pages. Full size pages, too!
Content: Expect loads of lovely Christmassy products and much, much more! All designed to mix and match. Previews of the US catalogue are leaving demos VERY excited.

 
2012-2013 Annual Catalogue               
Dates: 1st Oct 2012-30th Jun 2013. 

NB: This will run for a shorter period than usual to allow for the transition year. Subsequent Annual Catalogues will run for 12 months.
Size: A fantastic 204 pages!
Content: All of our core products such as cardstock, inks etc, plus loads of fab stamps, papers, punches, fabrics and dies. Woo,hoo! It's larger too!!!! How great is that?!!!


Spring/Summer Catalogue
Dates: 1st Feb 2013-30th Jun 2013
Size: Same as Autumn/Winter
Content: More seasonal products, latest trends, taking us into our warmer months (???) to supplement the core offering in the Annual Catalogue


So. what do I think? Personally, I can't wait. Happy dance :) I've already made a wish list that will make my OH divorce me as I dance round in anticipation. And, what's more, I think you'll be joining the dance too, when you see what's in store over the next year.


Don't forget: All members of Stampers 10 will continue to receive FREE catalogues for the duration of their membership, along with free postage on their monthly order. 

If you have a sizeable/growing wish list then take advantage of our Starter Kit. It's only £99 and you get to choose £130 worth of goodies from our current catalogues. The choice is yours. You can even buy the kit just to get the 20% discount on future sales. If you don't want to maintain minimum sales or decide it's not for you, you just resign, no questions asked, no penalty to pay. What have you got to lose???

Welcome card

Here is a picture of the card I sent to my new downline - I thought you might like to see it. Her favourite colour is purple - so I used various shades of purple, teamed with green and white. The stamp set is Paisley Petals which I stamped in Staz-on and coloured using my aqua painter, with Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum and Old Olive ink, before running through the square lattice embossing folder. After attaching Very Olive ribbon (retired, but just going to prove that all the colours work together!) the stamped card was mounted on Lucky Limeade card before sticking onto my main Wisteria Wonder card (both are 2011 - 2013 In colours).
I got a  "Wow! Thanks for the card"  text. Think she liked it!

Fathers Day

Yesterday, with Fathers Day fast approaching, and bearing in mind that I was seeing my Dad today, it seemed a good idea to get motivated and make him a card. Thought I'd try to use up some of my 'pre-SU' stash. I was really pleased with the finished card which could so easily be made from Stampin' Up products (actually I did use one of the SU punches - the scallop circle - and soft suede ink) - crumb cake and soft suede are very similar colours to the papers used here. The paler mount card is slightly pearlescent as is the scallop circle.
What do you think? It's a good job that I hadn't left his pressie till the last minute too!

Welcome Cathryn!

Remember the recent post about our new Starter Kit for only £99 ? Today one of my merry band, Cathryn, took up the offer and has signed up as a demonstrator. How exciting! She chose to completely customise her kit so everything she receives will be exactly what she wants.
I told her that since my blog is called Lelly Jelly's Stamp n' Scrap that she must be a Jelly Bean. For some reason she liked the sound of that! Woo hoo! Good luck to Cathryn. Here, once again, for anyone else considering taking up the kit offer, is a reminder of the new £99 Starter Kit.

What's new about it? First the price, the kit is now only £99. Now that's not an amount to be sneezed at and not exactly pocket money but let me tell you more. For your money you get £130 worth of products and £45 in business supplies. It gets even better though. The kit is now FULLY CUSTOMISABLE, yes, you read that right. Nobody telling you that you must have something that you've already got in your stash. You can choose exactly what you want. So, that's a fully customisable kit plus business supplies worth a total of £175 for £99. What's more, if you decide at some later date that being a demo isn't for you, then you just resign. Nothing to pay back - NO STRINGS ATTACHED! So, if you're quibbling over it and already covet over £99 in products from our fabulous catalogues, then this could be for YOU!

Joining Stampin’ Up! Is Easy and Fun!

  

Join Stampin’ Up! in your way . . . with our completely customisable Starter Kit for just £99!
Build your own personal kit by picking £130 worth of any of our high-quality products. We’ll add in a business supplies pack valued at £45 (to help you get your business up and running), and you’ve got a customisable kit worth up to £175 for just £99!
It’s that easy.
Want some more good news? - anyone signing up before the end of May 2012 gets their registration fee to the 2012 Convention paid. This year the Convention is being held in Mainz, Germany. The registration fee is £149 but by signing up this month you'd get it paid for you. Like the sound of this? Contact me by email or phone, my details are in the righthand column.
