25 Years of Stamping and a Pumpkin to Boot!


Wow!  Stampin’ Up! is 25 years old this year, isn’t that awesome!  The year’s getting off to a bang too with some awesome stuff!  First, to celebrate the Silver Anniversary Stampin’ Up! will be releasing a “Best Of” set each month!  The sets will include 3 – 5 favorite images from stamp sets from the past, AND one new image created just for that set!  Each “new” set will be $14.95 and although only one will be released a month they will all be available for purchase through March 31, 2014!  Additionally, each set will come with a special 25-year Proof of Purchase sticker that you will want to keep with the collector’s card that will be included starting in February!  When you collect six sets you can send it in for a FREE set of your choice valued up to $14.95!!!!!  You have to redeem your free set by April 30 2014.  Here’s January’s set…

Best of Birthdays

Best of Birthdays! (132929)  It’s a clear mount set, all the “Best of” sets are clear mount.  Do you know what sets the stamps are from?  I can tell you that the oval, Happy Birthday to You, is the new stamp and it coordinates with the Extra Large Oval punch (119859).  Don’t forget that the clear mount sets don’t come with blocks, so you’ll want to make sure you have blocks for your new/old stamps!

I also want to tell you about something fabulously fun that was announced at Leadership over the weekend… are you ready?

Paper Pumpkin

Paper Pumpkin!  It’s like your “paper fairy godmother, without the white hair,” lol!  It’s a great way to get your creativity on simply, like a magical paper escape…  Each month you receive your Paper Pumpkin package (hah, say that three times fast) all ready to go.  Whatever the projects are that month it’s all prepped… cards, journals, great 3-D projects, everything is cut, measured, etc.  You just create it, pin it (if you’re a pinterest junky like me) and it’s ready to be given to that special person, or given that place of honor in your home if you can’t bear to part with it!

How does it work?  Well, Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit subscription program, each month you will receive a unique, surprise kit with a project – perhaps it will be cards, journals, décor, who knows, it’s a surprise!  The thing is that it’s all cut, measured, color coordinated and ready!  It will included the stamps, ink, paper and accessories, all you supply is the adhesive and yourself!  Your kit will ship on or around the 15th of the month, provided that you have signed up by the 10th.  The Paper Pumpkin memberships are $19.95 per month and that includes shipping!  It is an auto-renew membership but you can cancel at any time or even skip a month if you want.  Starting in early March there will be a Try-It kit if you want to just check it out for one month!  Here’s a peek at the Try-It kit that will be available in March…


Cute right?  Those little journals are too cute!   Now, when you go sign up make sure that you choose me as your demonstrator, “Tricia Sachs” in Queen Creek, AZ.  At this point we aren’t getting notifications when customers sign up, I’d love to know if you do… maybe when our first kits come in we can have a Paper Pumpkin Party!  Wouldn’t that be fun?

Still not sure?  Have more questions?  You can look at the faq or get more info on the Paper Pumpkin site.  Or you can always e-mail me!

A couple more things… Stampin’ Up! released ten new Single Stamps, yay!  Here’s just one…


Cute right?  I LOVE this little heart, the swirly flowers just make me smile!  This guy and nine others are new and available only through March 31st so grab them quick!  You can look at the Single Stamps page or the Assortment 3 and Assortment 4 flyers to see all ten designs.

One last thing and then I’ll stop… I wanted to give you an update and a bit more info on the “Dude, You’re Welcome” kit…

Dude Youre Welcome

The kit is $24.95 and includes four wood-mount stamps (they’re double-mounted) and have sentiments that cover pretty much every occasion, twelve 4”x6” postcards in four different “manly” colors, twelve gray envelopes, a Basic Gray Classic Stampin’ Pad, and an instructional guide.  The kit basically includes anything a “dude” could need to create a perfect manly card that the women in his life would love, and it comes in a very manly box!

One last thing… I know, I know!  I just wanted to remind you that new downloads are available for MDS2 every Tuesday!  There are some adorable ones this week!  Check this cutie out…


I think I’ll be reorganizing my pantry… it definitely needs it!  There are some other cutie-patootie downloads out there too!  Have a peek and if you have any questions about MDS or any of the other stuff I’ve posted (and I know, it was a LOT) then shoot me an e-mail or contact me on my Stampin’ Up! website!  As always don’t forget to check out my events page to see what’s coming up… if you can’t make a class in person then most likely you can do the class by mail!  Talk to you soon!
