Stampin Up News lets me have a chance to tell you about some new things that are happening in the Stampin' Up! world. I might talk about specials and things that will be to your advantage, or I might talk about new products and how to use them.
Or maybe there will be some other Stampin Up News that I just have to tell you!
Of course, if you want a monthly email telling you about the official Stampin 'Up! specials coming up, do subscribe to my SusanSalutations mailing list, especially if you live in Australia.
Just Contact Me to be added to the SusanSalutations (for Australian news about Stampin 'Up!) Mailing or the Paper Twists (for news about PaperCraftCentral, world wide!) Mailing.
Once you subscribe, I send you an email every month towards the beginning of the month and you will see all the company specials there.
Just so you know, I'm an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Australia. I am not an official representative of the company but I am a member of the company and can sell their product to you if you live in Australia.
Also, the SusanSalutations email is totally different to my PaperCraftCentral mail out, Paper Twists . There are therefore TWO emails you can sign up for, and I hope you do!
Now let's get on to the latest Stampin Up News.
We're almost half way through 2022! I hope this year has been kinder to you so far.
The Seasonal Catalogue is current until 30th June 2022, so if you know of something in there that you want, now is the time to order it as stocks may also run out before the end of June!
Of course, the big news this month is the release of the new Annual Catalogue!
Have you had a chance to browse through your beautiful annual catalogue yet? What is on your Wish List?? I have a lengthy one of those. Lol!
I hope you are enjoying your annual catalogue as much as I am enjoying mine. I love all the products and ideas in the 2022-23 catalogue.
They are always great value and it's good Stampin Up news to have an array of examples in a book at your fingertips.
If you ordered from me in the last 12 months, you were on my list of special people who received a brand new catalogue from me for free.
If you need a paper copy of the catalogue now, it is $AUD7 plus shipping, but you can order one online. Or you can see the digital copy for free. Just go to SusanSalutations store and scroll to the bottom of any page. You'll find the digital catalogue link there.
I love the new In Colors too. Even the names are fun!
What are In Colors? (Yes, I know the name is spelled the American way).
Well, they are new on trend colours. These new colours stay in our colour offering for two years. Introducing new colours every year means the Stampin' Up! shades stay fresh and on-trend with colours showing up in the marketplace.
Usually, I see our fresh In Colours in home decor, on clothing racks and in paint colours everywhere.
These new colours are available in Stamp Pads, Reinkers, Cardstock, Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Write Markers, Stampin' Blends, ribbons and other accessories.
One of my favourite features of the Stampin' Up! product line is that the colours
coordinate across the product line, which saves you time, reduces frustration in trying to match colours and gives you a relaxing
time when crafting.
I know you want to see them so here are the new 6" x 6" designer series papers in the In Colours:
Now that's good Stampin Up News!

In May, the good Stampin Up News is that the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue is a great source of inspiration.
You can browse the catalogue for ideas for card layouts, scrapbook pages and home decor. Even if you don't have the exact stamps, ink and paper for the project, you can often adapt the layout to your own available supplies.
I keep all my past catalogues partly for that reason - to browse through projects and inspire my own crafting.
In fact, if you would like inspiration for how Stampin' Up! enthusiasts are CASEing (copying and sharing) catalogue projects, join in the CASE-ing the Catty Facebook group.

I have a little video here that shows you how to use the cling mount stamps:
