New Catalog Information

Stampin' Up! announced that pricing will change with the new 2015-2016 catalog. Most items have been rounded up to whole dollar amounts. (i.e. card stock packages that were $6.95 and are now $7.00). There were some decreases, most notable the embossing folders. They were $7.95 and are now $7.50).  The price changes (aside from a business decision for SU!) were made to make it easier to determine Host Rewards with the new catalog.

The new catalog brings new Host Rewards. They are now called Stampin' Rewards and are based on a percentage of your party's sales (without tax/shipping). For example: if your party total is $150, you will receive $15 in Stampin' Rewards (or 10%). If your party total is up to $299 you will still receive 10%. Once your party totals $300 your Stampin' Rewards jump to 12% or $36.00. Here is the new Stampin' Rewards table:

The sales periods for the 2014-2015 annual catalog, the 2015 occasions catalog, and the 2015-2016 annual catalog will overlap on June 2. Please note the following about the transition day of June 2:

  • All carryover items from the 2014-2015 annual catalog and 2015 occasions catalog will keep their 2014-2015 prices on June 2, while brand-new items in the 2015-2016 annual catalog will follow the 2015-2016 printed price. Beginning 3 June, all 2015-2016 pricing will take effect.
  • Current host program benefits will remain in effect on June 2. Beginning June 3, all new host benefits (Stampin' Rewards) will take effect.
  • On June 2, hosts may choose host items from the 2014-2015 annual catalog, the 2015 occasions catalog, or the 2015-2016 annual catalog.
  • Beginning June 3, hosts will no longer be able to choose host items from the 2014-2015 annual catalog or the 2015 occasions catalog, and the new Stampin' Rewards program will begin.
Thank you for stopping by today. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me. Until next time...Happy Stamping!

Mother's Day

It was a beautiful day on Mother's Day, so we decided to go to the lake. Found a great little hiking trail and these pictures were taken from the trail. Great day!

Thanks for looking. Happy Stamping!

Sneaky Peek!

Stampin' Up!  2015-2017 In-Colors   http://KristinB.stampinup.net shared from: www.stampcrazywithalison.com www.stampstodiefor.com 
These are the new In Colors. From top: Mint Macaron, Watermellon Wonder, Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe.

Leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite. I'm still debating...not sure which I like best. But, the lace trim and the butterflies, and the resin embellies are all new, too. If you want a new catalog, leave me a comment and I will make sure you get one. (If you are one of my current Shoebox girls, you will get one when they are available).

Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time....HAPPY STAMPING!

March Shoebox Swap

I'm sorry for the delay in getting these awesome cards posted. Life kinda got in the way. But, here are all the cards from our March Shoebox Swap. I am so blessed to have met all these new friends here in North Idaho! We get together as often as we can (monthly during Spring, Summer & Fall) to stamp and chat. It's so much fun. If anyone else would like to join our group, just leave me a comment!

Our theme this month was a card sketch that I found on SCS. We all had to use the sketch and design our cards.
