Holiday Catalog Mailing Selector

The mailing selector for the 2017 holiday catalog will be available July 1 and remain open through July 31. Remember, you may only place one order during the open selection period, so make sure everything is correct before you close it.

Mailing selector orders will begin shipping to customers the week of August 7 via standard (bulk) mail, which can take up to 2-3 weeks to deliver.

Get more details on the catalog mailing program here. Visit the Catalog Details page to get more information on the 2017 holiday catalog.

Don’t Blink or You Might Miss It!

We ♥ Hosts—Only a Few Days Left!

There are only a few days left until the We ♥ Hosts promotion ends. But there’s still time to book some events before the end of June. Hosts can get extra rewards through June 30.

Santa Claus Is Coming to Town!

This just in from the North Pole! Santa Claus is coming to town a little early this year, and he’s decided to drop off a few Starter Kit gifts for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who join during the month of July—including the Carols of Christmas Stamp Set from the 2017 holiday catalog and a fabulous Essentials Gift Pack. Click here to learn more about this amazing offer!

Carols of Christmas Coming Soon!

Experience the peace and magic of Christmas in summer with the early release of the Carols of Christmas Bundle.

OnStage Display Board Stampers Needed

OnStage is coming up again this November, and we’re getting ready for an exciting event! Want to get involved? If so, we need demonstrators (of any title) who would like the opportunity to stamp projects for our OnStage display boards. Interested demonstrators must be planning on registering and planning to attend OnStage Local or Live.

If you are interested in being an event display stamper, here’s how to apply:

1. Create or collect your best work and include the following hand-stamped items: three card fronts (standard card size), one scrapbook page, and two 3D items. Display stampers will be selected based on the quality and creativity of their submitted artwork.

2. Create a single blog post, Pinterest board, or Demonstrator Business Web Services (DBWS) website post featuring good quality pictures of your projects.

3. Fill out this application for consideration. (Please only fill it out one time; demonstrators who fill it out multiple times will not be considered.) We must receive your application by Friday, July 27.

Selected demonstrators will receive products and supplies to create samples for the event; they’ll also win a post-event shopping spree. We look forward to seeing your work. Good luck!

No Change to Payout Factors for New Quarter (Canada Only)

The payout factors will remain the same for next quarter. View the payout factors in the CSV and Payout Factor document under Business Resources>Compensation Plan.

The payout factor is used when converting CSV to your local currency to determine how much you will be paid. Because the payout factor closely relates to trending exchange rates, we will evaluate it for potential changes on a quarterly basis. During this evaluation we consider the previous 12-month, 6-month, and 3-month trends, and then we adjust the payout factors as necessary. Remember the value of product credits is based on the payout factor at the time they are spent, not when they are redeemed in the Flex Account.   

(Comment from Blythe:  we’re over the hump—half of the year is gone and we’re already on week 26!  Can you believe it!?)
