Stampin Up News

Written and Created by PaperCraftCentral Susan

Stampin Up News tells 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 something else new 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.

June Stampin Up News


Fresh Stampin Up News for June 24th ONLY:

FREE POSTAGE on all orders!

It only lasts for that day so if you want something you don't have to pay postage on, tomorrow is the day!

Last Chance Products!

The June Stampin Up News is exciting. We have many items being on sale for discount prices! They are retiring items and could be sold out at any time, so do make sure you check them out to see if one of your favourites are on offer.

I always like to check which bundles are expiring as there is an automatic 10% discount on them. If these bundled items carry forward into a new catalogue, sometimes they are listed individually with NO discount, so get your discount while you can if you have had your eye on a bundle of products.

New Annual Catalogue!

Have you had a chance to browse through your beautiful, spanking new annual catalogue yet? What is on your Wish List?? I have a lengthy one of those. Lol!

I hoep you are enjoying your new catalogue as much as I am enjoying mine. I love all the new products and ideas in the new catalogue.

2021-2022 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue

I love the new In Colors too. Even the names are fun!

Fresh Freesia

Polished Pink

Pale Papaya

Evening Evergreen

Soft Succulent

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! colours 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 when the new Stampin' Up! catalog launches on 4 May 2021. 

One of my favourite features of the Stampin' Up! product line is that the colours coordinate across the product line, which saves you time, redices 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:

2021-23 InColors

Whisper White News Flash!

Our beautiful Whisper White cardstock and envelopes have now retired. The factory that was making them for us has been affected by the COVID situation so has had to close. Stampin' Up! has been very proactive in finding a lovely substitute for Whisper White cardstock and envelopes and we can now buy the new paper, Basic White.

This news is affecting A4 cardstock, 12" x 12" cardstock, and all envelopes in all sizes.

Whisper White Cardstock

Now that's good Stampin Up News!

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Product Line

In June there's great Stampin Up News!

Creating die cuts and embossed designs is easy, thanks to Stampin’ Cut & Emboss!

The die-cutting and embossing products do the work so you can have the fun. The Stampin’ Cut & Emboss and Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines offer multiple die-cutting and embossing options for you from beginners to seasoned crafters.

Both of the Stampin’ Up!-exclusive machines offer the highest quality and make precise cuts and detailed embossed images every time.

They’re also simple to store and easily portable, which makes packing for your events a cinch!

They come with all the tools needed to get started right away, making it easy to have a fantastic die-cutting and embossing experience from the start.

So what sets our machines apart from the rest? Here are some of our favourite features: 

  • Durable machines with high-quality results. The solid steel construction frame and rubber feet that securely grip the work surface produce crisp, clean, precise cutting and beautifully detailed embossing. 
  • Easy to use. The machines and tools are designed for an intuitive die-cutting and embossing experience. For example, all plates are labelled with a number and are colour-coded for easy reference and use when building your sandwich. And just like the name suggests, the Magnetic Cutting Plates have fully-magnetic surfaces to make it easy to securely position your dies and keep them in place. 
  • Simple to store. The platforms on both machines fold for space-saving storage and they look pretty too–the sleek, clean design suits any crafting space. 
  • Portable. You can use both machines at home or on the go with their folding platforms and ergonomic carrying handles. This makes it easy to attend crops or other crafting get togethers.

Stampin Cut and Emboss Machine

It just might be time to replace your older die cutting and embossing machine, right? The new machines mean good Stampin Up News as you can replace your old machine with a strong and beautiful new Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine!

Woo hoo! Now that's some handy Stampin Up News!

Where's my Wish List??


Join My Team!


Do you love to craft? Would you like to work from home? Do you enjoy people? Then becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator may be the perfect opportunity for you.


As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator you’ll teach others how to be creative using high quality stamps, ink and paper, as well as embellishments, specialised tools, beautiful project kits and more. Stampin' Up! takes the guesswork out of coordination so you and your customers can have an amazing crafting experience, no matter your skill level.


Are you a party person? Part of the fun of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is bringing people together to share creative experiences, either in person or online. Your customers will be excited to pick up creative techniques and advice, share ideas and make new friends who love papercrafting as much as they do!



Stampin’ Up! provides the support you need to run a successful home business. They send you a quarterly magazine and weekly emails filled with detailed project ideas, business advice, demonstrator spotlights, the latest Stampin’ Up! news and more. They also offer regular promotions throughout the year, giving you an opportunity to contact your customers. And their fabulous, yearly OnStage event for demonstrators is icing on the cake! You’ll enjoy classes, be first to see the latest catalogue, get training and information on new products and much more.


As a demonstrator, you’ll earn 20–25% on every sale plus additional income based on sales volume. You can also earn team commissions as you recruit others to join your team. And for all you superstars who love to go above and beyond, you can earn an amazing incentive trip every year. Think Thailand, Alaska, Mediterranean cruises and more! Earning these trips takes hard work and determination, but demonstrators who put in the time and effort to earn these trips every year absolutely love them.


Can sharing creativity really be a job? Yes! And you can begin right away. Starter Kits are a great value at $169 AUD/$189 NZD for $235 AUD/$285 NZD worth of products, and Stampin' Up! throws in business supplies and free shipping as an added bonus. (You’ll think your birthday came early when your Starter Kit arrives!) So don’t wait.

Are You Browsing the NEW Annual Catalogue?

In June, 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.

SPECIAL OFFER for Australian Crafters: If I receive an order from you anytime from June to May in any year, I buy a new catalogue for you to be received before June, have my name and details printed on it for your convenience, and ship it to you for free. You can order from me at SusanSalutatons, 24/7, and can earn your free catalogue for next June!

It costs me to send these special catalogues, but it is a little gift I give to my customers each year.

If you missed out this year, be sure to order from me from June 2021 to May 2022 and I will add you to my free catalogue list for next year.

In the meantime, you can order a new catalogue with your order, or ask me for one in person. I am selling them for $5 each, or you can still get one free from me if you place an order for more than $AUD50.

I can only send catalogues to people who live in Australia. If you live outside of Australia, search for a Demonstrator near you and see how you can receive a catalogue.


Good Stampin Up News! The SusanSalutations Shop has been revamped! It should make ordering from me even easier. You can now search for products with a whole new range of filters.

Do remember to select me (Susan Hurley-Luke) when you shop.

Your saved links to my store should still work, but the actual new address is 

Other Advantages of the New Store:

  • You'll see bigger images of products
  • You can create a Wish List to remember what you want to order, or to share with friends who might like to gift you a little crafting love
  • The store is now hosted in Australia which makes finding it easier
  • Navigating the site should be smoother and easier all round!

Remember you can still browse the digital catalogue online for free and can place an order from there, from anywhere in Australia, and have your items delivered directly to your door.

I would love to be your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator if you are looking for one!

Cling Mount Stamps

Cling Stamps

Stampin' Up! has released cling stamps. There will no longer be wood mounted stamps available but the photopolymer ones are still going to be offered as well.

The cling mount stamps will still be made out of the red rubber we are used to seeing on the wood mount stamps, but they will have a new backing material that allows them to stick firmly to an acrylic stamp block.

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

You can message me if you live in Australia and do not have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I can show you how to browse the full online catalogue and how to get a paper copy of the annual catalogue.
