NEW THIS WEEK:  March 6, 2018

OnStage Registration Is Now Closed—Plan to Watch OnStage OnLine

OnStage registration is now closed. Can’t make it this April? Don’t worry—we have the next best thing! OnStage OnLine will be available on April 12, so you can watch parts of OnStage from your living room. Better yet, message your stampin’ friends and schedule an OnStage OnLine party. Just add popcorn and projects—and enjoy the OnStage experience together!

Greek Isles Incentive Trip Travel Allowances

To help you plan your flex points for the Stampin’ Up! year, we wanted to let you know that we will offer travel allowances for the Greek Isles Incentive Trip. These allowances will be available in the Flex Account in mid-September.

Remember, in order to redeem for a travel allowance, you must first redeem for the incentive trip to which it is tied. When you redeem a travel allowance, a cash deposit will be made into your account on file. Because the travel allowance is deposited as cash, you can use the money in any way you want. The travel allowance isn’t meant to completely cover all extra expenses for the trip; it’s meant to help reduce the out-of-pocket costs of travel-related expenses such as baggage fees, excursions, extended stays, additional guests, etc. You can read more about travel allowances here.

Creativity Starts with Paper Pumpkin 

Paper Pumpkin has an exciting promotion coming soon! From March 11–May 10, new Paper Pumpkin subscribers will receive 50% off their first 2 months. Check the promotions page on March 11 for tips, information, and resources to help you promote this fantastic offer!


New Recruit Folder Available

The Recruit Folder (item 114554), found on the demonstrator Supply Items page, has been updated with the newly refreshed Stampin’ Up! logo and is now available to order. Visit the Supply Items page for more details.

Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes

Our Sale-A-Bration Tutti-frutti Cards & Envelopes have been so popular that we came close to depleting our supply—and with all factories in China closed down for Chinese New Year’s, we didn’t know how we were going to continue to support you and your customers with this product for the remainder of Sale-A-Bration. Fortunately, we were able to find another supplier; however, because of this, you may see some variations in the product. But don’t worry—both versions uphold Stampin’ Up!’s high quality, and we just wanted to make you aware of the difference.

We'd Like Your Feedback on Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure

It's already been a couple of weeks since the occasions catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure were launched, and we hope you're thoroughly enjoying the new products! We're eager to receive your feedback because we're always looking for ways to improve. So let us know your feedback via our fun tool, the Product Idea Sandbox.

And, of course, should you have any other product suggestions independently from this catalog, the Sandbox is the place to make them, too.

PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED

Potential Backorders on Select Stampin’ Blends

Since the introduction of Stampin’ Blends in October 2017, our forecasting and planning department has been closely monitoring our Stampin’ Blends inventory and customers’ buying patterns. Over the last couple of months, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in the sales of Stampin’ Blends, which is wonderful—you and your customers are buying them, using them, and loving them!

Unfortunately, the quick increase in sales, along with a long lead time from our supplier in China, and the temporary shutdown of all factories in China for the government-mandated Chinese New Year holiday, has created a perfect storm for backorders. In the next coming weeks, we anticipate that approximately 14 of our current 27-color Stampin’ Blends collection will go on backorder: 

  • Bermuda Bay (Light and Dark)
  • Bronze
  • Calypso Coral (Dark)
  • Crumb Cake (Light and Dark)
  • Ivory
  • Pink Pirouette (Light and Dark)
  • Pool Party (Light and Dark – currently on backorder)
  • Pumpkin Pie (Dark)
  • Smoky Slate (Light and Dark)

Because of Chinese New Year, we don’t yet have a firm date of when more of these colors will be available, but we anticipate it won’t be until the end of April.

Letting you know of this potential backorder situation could result in our current inventory being depleted even more quickly; however, we wanted to give you and your customers the opportunity to purchase your favorite Stampin’ Blends colors before they go on backorder.

You can continue to monitor our Stampin’ Blends inventory on the Inventory Status Report.

How Do You Want Us to Notify You?

We are researching new ways to provide you with different notifications—about your personal business, about promotions, about your team members, etc.—in a manner that is more helpful and timely for you and your business. We’d love to get your feedback via this short survey; it should take less than five minutes to complete and will be available until March 13. Thank you in advance for your help!

Back in Plaid Is . . . Back!

Hurray! One of your favorite Paper Pumpkin kits, Back in Plaid, will be available while supplies last to Paper Pumpkin subscribers only beginning tomorrow, February 28. We will also be sending out this announcement to all subscribers on February 28 via our monthly Paper Pumpkin email. Not a subscriber and want to get your hands on this kit? Sign up here today!
