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!
Now let's get on to the latest Stampin Up News.
We all love gorgeous Designer Series Paper. By popular demand, Stampin' Up! is bringing back the Designer Series

What great Stampin Up News, right?
I just love getting previews of all the Stampin Up News at OnStage Live! events.
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.
BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER
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!
RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS
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.
EARN CASH AND REWARDS
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.
JOIN THE CRAFT SISTERS
My own personal team is called The Craft Sisters. If you become a member of my team, you will gain my personal support in building your business your way, or staying a hobby demonstrator if you just want to be a member and buy product for yourself at a discount. You'll have access to exclusive Facebook groups where you will see new product and projects developed by me and my team. You'll get to meet with me if you are close enough geographically, or I might even travel to you sometimes! You;ll get to form friendships and attend Stampin' Up! and team events with people you know. That adds a whole tonne of fun to the day!
CREATE YOUR STARTER KIT
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.

World Card Making Day—Save the Date
It’s that time of year again—World Card Making Day is right around the corner and we can’t wait! Mark your calendars and plan to get together with your friends, family and fellow cardmakers to enjoy a day dedicated to creating beautiful, handmade cards.
It happens on Saturday, October 5th. Why not get together with friends that day to make a few cards? Then meet up again for a cuppa near a Post Office to mail them out! Fun, fun, fun for you and friends, and you will also be brightening people's lives with your handmade cards.
I'll be holding a cardmaking day here at home that day and would love to know you are crafting along with us. Please do post a picture of your projects and your friends on the World Cardmaking Day page. I'll go make that possible for you to do right now...
Now that's good Stampin Up news, right?
Great Stampin Up News! The new Holiday catalogue is coming out in September!
My nice big pile of these have been depleted as I have sent them out to all my existing customers.
If you live in Australia do not have a Stampin Up Demonstrator yet, I would love to be your Demonstrator. Contact me and I will send you a new Holiday Catalogue. Or ask your existing Demonstrator for a copy.
Trust me, there are beautiful craft supplies all through the new catty.
Here's what I have bought so far, in my pre-order. (Yes! Demonstrators get to pre-order some supplies! That's yet another joining perk.)
I love when the Holiday Catty comes out. That's great Stampin Up News for me and for you!
Stampin' Up! News about dies and embossing folders is that they are in pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line.
There are longer Big Shot machines on offer in the new annual catalogue!
There just might be a new die cutting and embossing system around the corner, so check back for updates!
Meanwhile, they are offering new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalogue! The dies and folders are now manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style.
They are now available to order.
Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers; this is explained more below).
AND we are having a name change for some items. There are no longer any framelits, edgelits etc. Everything that cuts by being put through a die cutting machine are simply called dies.
We have 3d Embossing folders and just plain embossing folders too. No more long, complicated names to remember.
Here are some of the changes you’ll notice with our new-style dies and embossing folders:
You'll see improved adhesive that secures the dies to the insert sheet in the package so that it’s not too sticky. It’s easier to remove dies from the insert sheet, and the adhesive won’t cling to the dies.
You'll see standardized size of the die inserts for easier storage based on our observation of how people store their dies. There are now only two insert sizes: 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm), which coordinate in size with our stamp cases, and 6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm). The standard sizes will allow uniform storage in whatever system you use.
The envelopes that the dies come in are slightly larger.
With old-style Dynamic folders, we recommended you spritz cardstock before embossing to soften the fibers so you got a better impression. Now, that extra step will not be necessary because the new-style folders usually create a crisp impression without spritzing. The way the new folders are manufactured also gives us options for more detailed and intricate designs in the future.
3D folders are thinner than our old-style Dynamic folders. Because they are thinner, you will need to use a shim, depending on the die-cutting & embossing machine you use.
Stampin' Up! has introduced a new 3D Embossing Folder Plate to work with the new-style 3D embossing folders (which are thinner than the old-style Dynamic folders).
The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and the new-style 3D Folders in 21 mm gap machines (similar to the machine Stampin' Up! used to offer).
The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.
To create your emboss sandwich:
(Please Note: Stampin’ Up! will not be responsible to replace products broken due to using a sandwich which is too thick for a machine).

Even more Stampin Up News below:
Stampin' Up! has released 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:
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.
