NEW THIS WEEK
The 2017–2018 Artisan Design Teams
The 2017 Artisan Design Team blew us away this year with their creativity and inspirational projects. Their talent and unique perspectives have been a wonder to behold. We want to say a huge thank you to all 20 members of this phenomenal team!
With a new year comes a new lineup of crafters and innovators, and we hope you’ll join us in giving a warm welcome to the 2018 Artisan Design Team! We can’t wait to follow along and see where their creativity takes them this coming year. Meet the new team here.
OnStage Decision-Making Time Is Here!
It’s time to decide which OnStage event you’ll attend because registration starts January 16! With seven locations in North America, three in South Pacific, and four in Europe, you’ll want to choose the city closest to you—or maybe you’ll want to go for something farther away for a fun trip. Whatever location you choose, we look forward to seeing you in April!
Are you wondering what all the fuss is about and why our events have sold out time and time again? Here are a few highlights. At OnStage you’ll
Meet new demonstrator friends.
Get an event bag with lots of goodies.
See live stamping and business presentations.
See and play with brand-new products.
Have a chance to win prizes.
Be able to order select products from the new catalog early!
For those of you working on earning the 2019 Incentive Trip to the Greek Isles, we wanted to let you know of a couple of changes. First, registration will begin a little later than previously announced. After you’ve earned the trip, you can register from November 2, 2018 until January 10, 2019. This will better coordinate with the October 31, 2018 deadline you have to redeem your flex points for the trip.
Also, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line slightly altered the sailing dates. They are now July 21–28, 2019. Note these dates and keep planning to join us for all the sun, fun, and glamour that the Greek Isles have to offer on this seven-night cruise!
Do your customers love free stuff? We thought so! That’s why now is the perfect time to let them in on a little-known fact: They can earn Sale-A-Bration rewards when they purchase a 3-, 6-, or 12- month prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription. In fact, purchasing prepaids may be the best and easiest way to earn free Sale-A-Bration products—especially if your customers are new to papercrafting and find the catalog a little intimidating!
Check out the Paper Pumpkin and Sale-A-Bration promotion page for more details, tips, and tools. There’s never been a better time to introduce your customers to Paper Pumpkin prepaids, so spread the word today!
New Stampin’ Up! Logo Apron Available

The item code and price remain the same (item 123011; $20.00 USD/$25 CAD). Visit the Supply Items page on the demonstrator website for more details.

Stampin’ Up! 30th Anniversary Pins
Unless you’ve been hiding in a crafting cave for the past few months, you know Stampin’ Up! turns 30 this year! To commemorate this momentous occasion, we’re giving every demonstrator who places a demonstrator order in 2018 an exclusive 30th anniversary pin.
Here's everything you need to know:
Demonstrators may receive ONE pin. There is an exception:
If you attended the November 2017 OnStage and already received a pin (lucky you!), you may receive another one by placing a demonstrator order in 2018.
New demonstrators joining and placing their first demonstrator order in 2018 are eligible.
First demonstrator orders must be placed by December 31, 2018; 11:50 PM (MT).
You won’t be able to order more pins.
Pins will not be available as supply items or redeemable with flex points.
Pins available while supplies last.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to check your shipping boxes thoroughly. (The pins are small, and you don’t want to accidentally throw yours away!)

Cost Calculator Updated
The Cost Calculator has been updated to show the new occasions catalog products. The cost calculator is a tool designed to help you increase your business’s profitability by breaking down the cost of consumables for you. It shows your cost on individual items (i.e., cost per sheet of cardstock, per inch of ribbon, per button, or per envelope). We have also added a new feature where you can indicate the amount used on each consumable, and the total project cost will be figured for you. Being aware of your costs is a helpful step toward enjoying a rewarding and profitable business.
