Introducing Mix & Match, a Quick & Easy Option

Our new Mix & Match line of products – a Quick & Easy crafting option – work together to make your crafting life easier. Simply start with a card base of your choice, then customize your card by adding any combination of Ephemera Packs and the Simply Said stamp set (or your favorite stamp set of your choice).

Not sure where to start? Check out pages 21-22 of the 2024-2025 Annual Catalog for inspiration.

When we attended OnStage in Houston back in March, we got to play with these products and make a card. Here is what I created:

The only stamping required was the greeting”Thinking of You.” We did not have other products available to us such as embellishments or ribbon, so just imagine how gorgeous this would be with just a little bling added!

The collection of Mix & Match products can be found on page 19 of the 2024-2025 Annual Catalog. I have also listed the products below for your quick reference and convenience:

Product List

These products are a lot of fun to play with and I included all of them in my first order. I can’t wait to see what else I create using them. If you have these products or plan to buy them soon, please share your finished projects with me.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends!

Kits Collection

The Kits Collection by Stampin’ Up! is all about making crafting fun, accessible, and inclusive! We’re always working hard to design a collection full of different product options to provide you oodles of options when it comes to finding that perfect project or gift. 

We love variety, which means that our collection is frequently changing as new kits are released and the availability of previous kits fluctuates. To make sure you are aware of kit availability at any given time, please keep these guidelines in mind: 

  • To check the status of kit availability, visit the online store. This is the most up-to-date and accurate source for product availability. KITS COLLECTION
  • If a kit appears on the online store and is orderable, then it’s available at that time.
  • If a kit appears on the online store with a label “currently unavailable,” then it’s currently out of stock but will be restocked and will be available to order again after we have received additional inventory.
  • If a kit doesn’t appear on the online store, then it’s no longer available in that market and will not be restocked. In this case, the kit in that market is discontinued.

The Kits Collection does NOT include our Paper Pumpkin kits product line, which is our monthly kit subscription. More information about Paper Pumpkin tomorrow.

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Online Exclusives

Last year Stampin’ Up! introduced a new line of products called Online Exclusives. As their name suggests, you won’t find these products in any current catalog (however, some items from past catalogs may find their way to the online store!). These products are a new opportunity to spark creativity, expand a crafting collection, and discover new opportunities—all from the convenience of the online store.

New products are introduced through the online store approximately every three months, so be sure that you visit the online store often. There is no fixed end date for Online Exclusives! Some products will be reordered when inventory is low, and others will only be available while supplies last. This way we can offer even more new products throughout the year.

You can find the Online Exclusives here: ONLINE EXCLUSIVES

Here are just a few of the recently added online exclusive products:

Product List

If you have any questions about using the online store, or Online Exclusives specifically, please contact me.

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, stamp on my friends!

Stampin’ Up! OnStage is a Wrap!

It has taken me a couple of days to recover, but I had an amazing time last weekend (Thursday – Saturday) in Houston, Texas with thousands of demonstrators from Stampin’ Up! celebrating each other’s milestones and accomplishments and being introduced to new products from the 2024-2025 Annual Catalog that will be introduced in May. Of course, there was some training included, but when you get to put your hands on the new products and Make & Take projects, it’s all fun and games, almost.

Of course there is a LOT of walking, standing, waiting for doors to open so you can try and grab a really good seat and enough good seats for all of your team members, and we had a really great group this year:

Our t-shirts are in honor of one of our team leaders, Amy Storrie, who was not able to make the trip due to fighting breast cancer. This shirt was designed by another team member and the hastag reads #fightlikeamy.

As part of the stash of goodies one brings home from such an event, there is the merchandise from Stampin’ Up! from either Prize Patrol, classes or All Attendee Giveways:


And gifts from team mates:

It’s a good thing this was an event that was close enough to drive to, because I had twice as much stuff to bring back as I took with me so I would have had to pay for luggage to get everything back!

I also received a copy of the new 2024-2025 Annual Catalog which has been redesigned for an all new crafting experience. You will just have to wait to see it to know what I mean. But I think you will love it.

The new 2024-2026 In Colors are awesome and one of them is actually a returning color from back when I first became a demonstrator (2009)! They are: Pretty in Pink, Peach Pie, Shy Shamrock, Summer Splash and Petunia Pop.

I could go on and on about OnStage, but I will end it here for now.

I will come back tomorrow and share some of the swap cards that our team made that feature the upcoming Online Exclusive products coming soon in April.

Thank you for stopping by. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

Coming In May — Fresh New Colors!

Greetings my stamping friends.

At Stampin’ Up!, we’re all about creativity and sharing what we love with those we love. And that means providing a compelling selection of high-quality craft supplies in coordinating colors and designs. We’re always working to not only meet trends but set them. That means evaluating and even refreshing our current products—and this year we’re refreshing our complete color collection!

You’ll find some new friends and returning favorites among our Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles. And you won’t want to miss our new 2023–2025 In Colors. We hope you’re as excited as we are to start crafting with these fresh new colors and to share them with your fellow crafting enthusiasts.

With a color refresh, some colors will retire, some favorites from past In Color collections will return and then we have some brand new colors as well, and of course every year we get five new In Colors that will be available for a two-year period.

Here is a video that will provide you with a sneak peek of the Color Refresh and our returning favorites:

Thank you for stopping by today. Until next time, stamp on my friends.
