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.

March Stampin Up News

Butterfly Bouquet

You might need some more butterflies in your life and on your craft desk. That's what I thought when I saw the Butterfly Brilliance Collection! It was released this month and is available from March 2nd to 3rd May.

It might just fly off the shelves and be sold out before May 2nd so if you fall in love with these die cuts, stamps and beautiful designer series paper, I suggest ordering now rather than later!

You can get the whole collection, or a bundle, or you can order just the individual items you want. Go to the Specials and Promotions page on my SusanSalutations site to see all the details.

Here's what you get in the Collection:

Here's what you can get in the Bundle:

Or you can just get the stamp set, with the beautifully detailed images:

Maybe the dies are more what you want. I think they are just beautiful.

Brilliant Wings Dies

And who can resist these 6" x 6" designer series papers with butterflies in so many sizes? Some of the images match the dies, too!

Butterfly Bijou DSP

Or if you want a natural look with texture, order the Natural Touch Designer Series Paper. It's a specialty paper so this pack has just the two sheets of dsp in it:

Natural Touch Specialty Designer Series Paper

Such great Stampin Up News in March!

Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick Releases

Remember the Hey Chick stamp set released a couple of years ago? Well, it's current again for a short time!

Hey Chock Stamp Set

If you missed out on this cutie last time, be sure to grab it this time around. It always makes me smile to use these characters on a card or 3-d project.

See my Hey Chick boxes on this month's Card Ideas page.

In addition to this old favourite, there's another stamp set out too. It'd called Hey Birthday Chick.

Who knew chickens floating off with balloons' help could be so cute?

Hey Chick Stamp Set

There are matching die sets to go with these two chicken stamp sets so you don't need to do any fussy cutting.

That's great Stampin' Up! news to me!

New January - June Mini Catalogue!

The new seasonal catalogue that came out on January 5th is big Stampin Up News!

I just know you are going to love all the new stamp sets and fun new things to play with!

Whisper White News Flash!

Our beautiful Whisper White cardstock and envelopes is about to be retired. The factory that was making it 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 soon we will be able to buy the new paper, Basic White.

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

In the meantime, if you need some Whisper White, Stampin' Up! is limiting our orders to two packs of cardstock per order. It will probably sell out fast, so do go get some if you need it right now.

Whisper White Cardstock

This Stampin Up news will keep you ahead of the game in your craft room, right? You can order some today so you won't run out during the transition.

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Product Line

In March 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!

The Get & Go Starter Kit promotion is meant to give those who sign up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator additional products to help you get started right away.

The regular starter kit costs $169 AUD and new demonstrators choose $235 AUD worth of products. That's a great deal.

If you join in March, you will receive a completely customisable starter kit!


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.

Are You Still Browsing the Annual Catalogue?

2020 - 2021 Stampin' Up! Catalogue

In December, the good Stampin Up News is that the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue is still 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 in 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 2020 to May 2021 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!

Thank you for checking out my new store and especially thank you for ordering from me

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.
