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.

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 am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Australia. I am not an official representative of the company.

Also, the SusanSalutations email is totally different to my PaperCraftCentral mail out, Paper Twists. There are TWO emails you can sign up for, and I hope you do!


May Stampin' Up! News

May is a great month on the Stampin' Up! calendar. It's the month the Retirement Lists come out, for both the Occasions catalogue and the Annual Catalogue (both finish on June 3rd)

Some products just don't carry over into the new catalogues. This is to make room for NEW products and supplies, and for Stampin' Up! to take into account what is trending right now.

Since I went to the OnStage Live conference event in Auckland, New Zealand (I LOVED going to New Zealand for the first time!!) I do know what is coming in the new catalogue! I plan to share that with you.

But first, we need to make sure something you love isn't going to disappear forever. Check out the Last Chance Products list.

Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit Coming May 15th!


The creator of this kit, Shelli Gardner (pictured above), is one of the co-founders of Stampin' Up!

Need some explanation about  what this special offer (and Paper Pumpkin) is all about? Here you go:


  • Paper Pumpkin is a monthly papercrafting kit offered by Stampin’ Up! that is currently only available in the United States and parts of Canada.
  • Because the Hugs from Shelli kit is so special, Stampin' Up! wanted to make sure everyone would get the chance to experience it.
  • To accomplish this in May they are offering the Shelli kit as an exclusive, limited release in all of our global (Europe, South Pacific, Japan and Quebec, Canada) markets starting 15 May.
  • The Shelli kit is the perfect product for all kinds of crafters, but Stampin’ Up! fans will love it the most. The fact that it’s Shelli’s kit and is a limited-time, exclusive offering gives it a level of collectability Stampin’ Up! collectors won’t want to miss.
  • This is a rare and unique opportunity to experience Shelli’s Paper Pumpkin kit.
  • Shelli collaborated with concept artists and designers to develop the kit, giving this kit a papercrafting experience inspired by Shelli herself.
  • The kit is available while supplies last; in other words, once they’re gone, they’re gone!
  • Mark your calendar now so you don' miss out on Hugs from Shelli! It's a gorgeous kit and you can make so many cards so quickly and easily with it, everyone should have one in their stash.

  • Designed to be stylish, durable, compact, stackable and modular.
  • Blends in naturally with most home decor with its white neutral colour.
  • Stacks vertically and can be arranged to fit practically any flat workspace.
  • Easily assembled and disassembled for rearrangement and/or cleaning.

Cling Mount Stamps are Here!


Another thing that happens this month is that Stampin' Up! is releasing cling stamps. There will no longer be wood mounted stamps available.

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:




Now I will tell you a little about the Occasions Catalogue.


Yep. There's more Stampin Up News below:



Occasions Catalogue


There are some fantastic new products in the Occasions catalogue, but they will be disappearing in June. This catalogue will be current till 3rd June, when the new annual catalogue is released.Some prducts will carry over into the new annual catalogue, and you can find out which ones will be available by checking the Last Chance products list (see above).

If you are my Australian customer already, I sent you new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues. I hope you received them!

If you live in another country, it could be that Stampin' Up! is available to you there. Search for your country at the main Stampin' Up! page by looking at the top left hand corner drop down menu where the little flag is.



You can message me if you live in Australia and do not have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator already, and I will send you a new Occasions catalogue.

You can ask me about the current Stampin Up News too!

Meanwhile, here's a cute little video showing how you can use some of the new products to create some cards:




What's your favourite stamp set from this video? I just love that embroidered paper. It's called the Needlepoint Nook Suite and I have a video showing you that suite in more detail:



Isn't it amazing that someone actually embroidered all those motifs, and then they took photos to make the paper? It looks so real!

This week I used the stamp set (Needles and Thread) to make an ATC. I plan to make quite a few this year. Want to make some too?
