3. BONUS: Buy a Starter/Try-It Kit in June and add any stamp set/dies or stamp set/punch bundle FREE. Value up to about $60. The whole package is worth up to $227 and is as follows: choose $125.00 of any product you want, add any bundle and the highest is $60.25, a $22 Paper Pumpkin gets added automatically, it ships free which would save you about $20 if you were buying all this as a regular order...that totals up to $227 but you pay $99 plus tax. So far, 15 have joined since June 3! This is the BEST value especially at new catalog time when your wish list is likely more than $99 long. NO parties, no strings, no risk.

4. ANOTHER BONUS: Any order, in my online store, that reaches $150 qualifies for freebies gifts from Stampin' Up! They are dollars to spend on additional product of your choice (see page 187 of the catalog). For June, when your order is at least $250 add $25 MORE in freebies to whatever you already qualify for. In other words, on a $250 order, you'd earn $50 more of anything you want. On a $300 order, you earn a total of $61 additional free and so on. Get those extra freebies HERE.

Questions ALWAYS welcome and none are ever "dumb"! Seriously I thrive on chatting about Stampin' Up! Simply hit "reply" to this email and ask!
Though the new machines are on page 170 of the new catalog, they were not available to order on June 3; the new machines will be available at some point in the first half of the 2020–2021 Annual Catalog sales period. Rumor has it that we will see them in the fall.

I will be sharing a lot more details about them when we learn when they are available. In the meantime, happy stamping!

Paper Pumpkin is our #1 selling product!

This month's offering is unique so I wanted to give it a little more space to explain. The July "Summer Nights" Paper Pumpkin kit has an optional add-on available only to subscribers (while supplies last) beginning July 1.

Summer Nights July Paper Pumpkin - subscribe now through July 10.

Kit contains enough supplies to create nine postcards and coordinating envelopes, as well as nine die-cut tealight bags.

  • Card size: 4” x 5-1/4”; envelope size: 4-1/2” x 5-3/4”
  • Coordinating Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy
The Paper Pumpkin kit does not require the add-on to create completed projects.
