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.

Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Digital Products

You may recall that Stampin’ Up! had a Project Life partnership with Becky Higgins LLC for a couple years. Though that partnership was dissolved earlier this year, we recently discovered that Becky Higgins LLC was still offering digital versions of our Project Life by Stampin’ Up! products on its website. We have reached out to them and wanted to let you know that Becky Higgins will shortly be announcing the discontinuation of these digital Stampin’ Up! Project Life products on her blog. Your customers who follow Becky Higgins may come to you with questions; you can let them know that these digital products are a result of our former association with Becky Higgins LLC and they will be discontinued on December 31, 2017.

If you or your customers have any questions, please reach out to Demonstrator Support.

Take the Red Box Challenge

Happy New Year, everyone! The Paper Pumpkin team is especially excited for 2018, and we have two great reasons: (1) This year’s kits are amazing; (2) We’ve decided to kick off 2018 with a superfun giveaway. We’re calling it the Red Box Challenge, and it’s easy to get in on the fun!

Simply put together a WOW project using an unused, past kit—or buy a past kit (US l CA) that you’ve had your eye on. Then share an image of your project on Facebook or Instagram with #redboxchallenge and you will be entered into a random drawing to win a Paper Pumpkin kit.

Now, we think all of our kits are wonderful and amazing--but our random drawing winners will receive the upcoming Paper Pumpkin fifth anniversary March kit. Think: Gorgeous and collectible. Everyone is going to want one. AND the winners will get it in their mailbox before anyone else. Sound fun? Check out the terms and conditions here, then start crafting your Red Box Challenge project today!

Note: Some project ideas will be selected from the entries and featured in Paper Pumpkin’s monthly newsletter and on our Facebook and Pinterest pages. Past alternative Paper Pumpkin projects you’ve created and posted on social media are not eligible for this contest.
