UPDATES: December 3, 2019: WEEKLY UPDATES December 3, 2019
Changes to Holiday Catalog Carryover Items
We frequently carry over select products from our holiday catalog to our annual catalog the next year. This year, we’re trying something different. We will continue to carry over select products from our holiday catalog to our annual catalog, AND we will also carry over select products from the 2019 holiday catalog to the 2020 holiday catalog! These special holiday-to-holiday catalog carryover items are listed below. You can also download the item list here.
Holiday-to-holiday catalog carryover products will not be available between January 3 and the start of the 2020 holiday catalog preorder period. Unlike holiday catalog products that will be carrying over to the annual catalog, which will be available the whole time.
We wanted to share this information with you now, so you don’t sell or give away any of these products. We also wanted to implement this change because of repeated feedback letting us know that you could continue to sell and promote products that you have invested in. Please keep in mind that this is not a permanent change at the moment. Because carryover products don’t sell as well as new products, we’re just testing it out. If you would like to see this change become permanent, make sure to sell lots of carryover products!

Think #simplestamping to Say “Thinking of You”
We’ve loved what you’ve been sharing, and we can’t wait to see more! We’re still sending surprises to thank participating demonstrators for posting their #simplestamping projects, so be sure share yours. (Remember: We want as many people as possible to see your creation, so please share your card outside of the Demonstrator Planning Place to get as much exposure as possible.)
Here are the creative parameters for December’s #simplestamping challenge:
December #simplestamping Challenge
Theme: Thinking of You card.
Supplies: Stamps, ink, and paper.
Remember to keep your project simple, share it using #simplestamping, and most of all—have fun!

Business Development Program Registration Opens December 11
Starting December 11, at 10:00 am (MT), registration for the Business Development Program begins! If you are chosen to participate, you will have coaching calls with a Business Development Advisor (BDA) once every other week and receive guidance in these crucial business topics:
Identifying areas of opportunity for your business
Establishing short- and long-term action plans
Creating effective accountability systems
As a reminder, registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, and your entire form must be completed before any assignments can be made. Please also note that registration closes on December 20, at 11:00 am (MT), so make sure to get your registration form submitted before time runs out!
This program is intended to provide you with helpful resources for building your business as an independent demonstrator. We will help you establish expectations for your business and explore your strengths and how they can help you grow. This is not a training program for demonstrators trying to learn more about the terms and policies within Stampin’ Up! Your advisor will push you to make your own, independent decisions for your business, mainly because you know your business and local area better than we ever could.
We are excited and hopeful that you will consider this program. We look forward to helping you progress in your business as an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.
Thank You, 2018–2019 Demonstrator Councils!
We wish to express our sincere and heartfelt gratitude for our demonstrator councils and their efforts this past year. They have done a wonderful job representing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators throughout the world. We appreciate their dedication, commitment, and willingness to serve on the council this past year.
