Stampin Up News

Written and Created by PaperCraftCentral Susan

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.

2023 Stampin Up News

It's time for massive Stampin Up News with a new annual catalogue arriving  new craft supplies and a huge colour refresh!

We said goodbye to many older colours and welcomed back some past favourites, and then we had some new colours introduced to the permanent line-up and we had five new In Colours introduced too!

I am still getting used to the rejig of our colour families and am delighted that Stampin' Up! has again brought us up to date. Everywhere I look, I see the colours that Stampin' Up! has introduced, or combinations of them. It's amazing how they do this for us. They are very on point with colour trends, don't you think?

The cover new annual catalogue is pictured below. If you do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in Australia, do contact me to see how you can earn this $7 plus postage catalogue for free. Or you can go to my SusanSalutations online store to order one. Have a look around there while you are at it. You might like to add something else new to your cart!

2023-24 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 2023-24 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.

Boho Blue, Copper Clay, Moody Mauve, Pebbled Path, Wild Wheat

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.

Now that's good Stampin Up News!

Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Product Line

In November 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!

Are You Browsing the Annual Catalogue?

In November, 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.

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

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