Stampin' Up!'s July–December 2022 Mini Catalog will be retiring soon! It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up! catalog take a trip to retirement. But, I'm looking forward to all the new products on their way—and hope you are, too!

Starting December 1st, save up to 60% on those retiring products. Don't procrastinate, after all, this selection of Last Chance Products is only available while supplies last.

Wanna help a girl out? Tomorrow is also the start of Stampin' Up!'s demonstrator Kit Sales Challenge.

Here's the details:

  • Between December 1st and December 31st, have at least six different customers order at least one kit each.

  • Once you’ve sold six kits to six customers, please respond to us, Stampin' Up!, with the first name of each customer and the name of the kit they purchased.

Here's the exciting part!!

  • The first 600 demonstrators from North America who meet the requirements will earn an exclusive tote, which will be shipped to them between February 1st and February 28, 2023. (Limit: one tote per earning demonstrator). We’ll post an update in January to celebrate our earners.

The tote is great, and with your help, I would love to earn one!!

Clearance Rack: Tomorrow is a busy day at Stampin' Up! Not only the retirement list, the Demo challenge, but Stampin' Up! is also reloading their Clearance Rack. If you have shopped the Clearance Rack before you know these products don't last long. If there is something you want don't wait, order right away. They are while supplies last too!

If you have any questions be sure to let me know!!

For November's stamp club I used the Gnomes Dies to cut images from the StoryBook Gnomes Designer series paper to make the card kits. All the member had to supply was a greeting and dark blue ink. I used Night of Navy and Pacific Point. Which coordinated with the DSP.


Balmy Blue 11" x 4 1/4" scored @ 1", 2" & 6 1/2" and

8 1/2" x 2 1/2" scored @ 3"

Basic White 4 1/4" x 4",

4 3/8" x 2 1/4" & scrap

DSP 2 @ 1" x 4 1/4" and 4" x 3/4"

Inspired by: Susan Campfield aka Suestampfield


Pacific Point 8 1/2" x 5 1/5" scored @ 4 1/4"

Basic white 2 @ 5 1/4" x 4" (inside & front) & scraps

DSP 5 /14" x 4"

I used the Cut outs from the DSP to decorate the front and inside.

The "Christmas Cheer" is from the Sweet Candy Cane stamp set.

The 3rd card in the kit (Happy New Year, which I completed for them) was a CASE from Tammy Beard. It's just beautiful using the Brightest Glow bundle.
