New In Colours!

Hello and welcome! It’s almost time for the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue and, with it, the new In Colours! We are saying ‘goodbye’ to Lovely Lipstick, Blueberry Bushel, Call Me Clover, Pineapple Punch and Grapefruit Grove but ‘hello’ to Magenta Madness, Cinnamon Cider, Bumble Bee, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight. Wow!

Stampin' Up! New In Colours 2020-2022

Which is your favourite?

It’s hard to choose, isn’t it?! At the minute my favourite is Misty Moonlight but I’m sure that will change lots of times over the next two years!

Want a closer look?

What better way to show you than with some cards? These are going out with my catalogue packs. If you don’t have a demonstrator and live in the UK, to can request a catalogue pack here.

I have used strips of cardstock in each of the new In Colours and heat embossed images from the Lovely You Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This strips are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Lengths of the coordinating ribbon are adhered to the cardstock using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is also from the Lovely You Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is then cut out using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies and adhered over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by the coordinating In Colour Enamel Dots. It is this level of colour coordination between products that means I need Stampin’ Up! in my life!

OnTour ONLINE

Around this time of year Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator are usually heading off to exciting events to listen to business presentations and find out more about upcoming products. We were due to head to Leeds this year to catch up with Stampin’ Up! friends (and make new ones) but, as you can imagine, it wasn’t to be!

However, Stampin’ Up! decided to host an online event for us instead! Hooray! And it was FREE for demonstrators! We had a welcome videos from Sara Douglas (CEO) and the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Team; New product presentations; Speed Networking sessions; Business presentations and lots of tips on creating a Sales Plan for the coming quarter!

It was great to be able to see old friends and meet new ones, even if it was only virtually. Stampin’ Up! really did pull out all the stops to make sure that we didn’t miss out despite the current world situation.

It’s great to be a part of this company – which becomes more like a family every day that you are a Demonstrator. I love the products (of course) but I also love the values, the positivity and the sense of being connected to so many people who have such passion for crafting!

I didn’t know all of this when I first joined Stampin’ Up! – I joined for the gorgeous products and for the discount, as many Demonstrators do – BUT it has been a wonderful two years (and counting). I’m looking forward to the next two years of building my business, building my team, meeting new friends, catching up with old friends (hopefully in person soon!) and, of course, making gorgeous projects with fabulous products.

If you would like to be a part of this global community, or just get a discount on fabulous products (!) I’d love to welcome you to my team. You can find out more here.

If you have any questions about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, please feel free to email me and I’ll do my very best to answer them. We can even set up a call (telephone or Skype) to talk things through if you’d prefer.

Happy crafting, h x

NEW Stampin’ Basics Video Series

My BRAND NEW Stampin’ Basics Video Series premieres on Monday 11th May at 09:00! I’m so excited!
