UPDATES: SEPTEMBER 12, 2017: Weekly Updates

Blythe Klipple

New this Week - Week 37

Stampin’ Success Online

The latest issue of Stampin’ Success is now available on the demonstrator website. Find exciting new ideas here.

Remember to check out the Online Extras as well. There are flyers available to download and print for your events and instructions for all Event of the Month projects.

Merry Little Christmas Cardstock Pack

We have received many questions about why the Kraft cardstock in the Merry Little Christmas 12" x 12" Cardstock Pack (item 144622) isn’t Crumb Cake. The paper mill from which we used to get our Kraft cardstock closed down, so we had to go with another mill. While their version of Kraft is very close to our Crumb Cake, there are some slight differences; therefore, we decided to call the color Kraft.

While this information is also included on the Catalog Corrections page, it is included there for informational purposes only, not as an actual correction to the catalog.

No Shipping on Day of Company Party

On September 20, we're taking the day off for our company party. Please note that there will be no shipping on this day. Expedited orders submitted after 11 AM (MT) on September 19 will not ship until September 21.

Thoughts and Prayers with Those Impacted by Hurricane Irma and Wildfires in the West

We are aware of Hurricane Irma, as well as wildfires in western areas of North America, and the impact they are having on members of the Stampin’ Up! family. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you. If you, or anyone you know, have suffered a loss of business materials, please reach out to Demonstrator Support. We are here and ready to help get you what you need in order to get your business up and running again.

Incentive Trip Travel Allowances

Registration for the 2018 Alaska Incentive Trip opens September 25. Travel allowances will be available for redemption in the Flex Account on September 11. As previously announced, we will offer two travel allowance amounts for Alaska. There will be a 100 CSV travel allowance available for 25,000 flex points and a 250 CSV travel allowance available for 55,000 flex points. You can redeem up to four of each travel allowance. Remember, in order to redeem flex points for a travel allowance, you must first redeem flex points for the corresponding incentive trip. For more information about travel allowances, visit the Incentive Trips and the 2018 Incentive Trip pages. You can also review the Travel Allowance Q & A here.

Flex Point Redemption Reminders

The last day to redeem flex points from the 2016–2017 Stampin’ Up! year is October 31, 2017. You can view and redeem your flex points under Ordering>My Flex Account. Please keep the following in mind as you are making plans and redeeming points:

  • Read the descriptions and place redemptions carefully. Since this rewards program is closely tied to earning the incentive trip, there cannot be any rollover of points. Consequently, all selections are final; there are no refunds or exchanges for Flex Account items.
  • All flex items are available while supplies last.
  • Flex items are not tied to a specific Stampin’ Up! year; items will come and go throughout the year.
  • Payout factor changes that take effect October 1, 2017, will affect CSV product credit values. (Product credit currency values are determined by your country’s payout factor at the time you use the product credit on a demonstrator order, not by your country’s payout factor when you redeem for the product credit in the Flex Account.)

New Stampin’ Up! Year and Retitlement

The new Stampin’ Up! year is fast approaching. To keep your current title and all its benefits into the 2017–2018 Stampin’ Up! year, you will need to meet all of your title’s requirements by 11:59 PM (MT) on September 30. On October 1, Stampin’ Up! will review the performance of every demonstrator to determine the title at which they’re performing; demonstrators who are not meeting their title requirements will be retitled accordingly. For example, in order to maintain the benefit of 25% instant income, you will need to meet title requirements for bronze elite by the stated deadline; otherwise, you will be retitled to bronze and return to earning 20% instant income. To learn more about titles and title requirements, read the Titles section of the Compensation Plan document, including the Titles Q & A. If you are not on track to maintain your title for the new Stampin’ Up! year, you will see a Progress to Maintain Title graph on your My Reports dashboard that will help you track how you’re doing. If you are silver or above, you will receive an email with additional tips.


Emboss-Only Die Pieces

We are always looking for new ways to use our dies. That's why we introduced some unique embossing elements to two of the die sets featured in our 2017 annual catalog: the Eclectic Layers Thinlits (includes three emboss-only pieces) and the Build a Bike Framelits (includes one emboss-only piece).

Eclectic Layers

Build a Bike

Unlike the dies they accompany, these two emboss-only pieces do not cut. They create beautiful, subtle embossed looks that add to the layering nature of their dies and coordinating sets. We designed these pieces to run through at the same time as other cutting dies—allowing your customers to build their sandwiches the same way.

Make sure to point out these emboss-only pieces to your customers, and let them know how they work.
