5/4/21 Updates & Stampin' Up! News
It’s a fun day to celebrate if you are a Star Wars fan like me, but it’s doubly fun this year because today the new 2021-22 Annual Catalog went live!!! 


And a couple promotions are beginning today to team up with the release of the new catalog...the Join+ promotion and the Connect, Craft & Collect promotion. Be sure to read below to take advantage of either or both if you wish.

I'm excited to announce that as of this morning, anyone who has ordered Stampin' Up!® products through me during the past 21+ years has helped me to reach my Million Dollar Career Sales mark!! This is a HUGE milestone that will be recognized in many ways by Stampin' Up! over the coming months. So thank you, thank you, thank you! 🥳

To celebrate, I'm gifting anyone who places an order of $50+ through me this month an extra Loyalty Reward point. So a  $50+ order would earn you 2 Loyalty Rewards Points, a $100+ order would earn you three, and so on.
Have fun paper crafting! And remember to...

Connect, Craft & Collect $25
May 4 through June 14 Stampin’ Up! is gifting an extra $25 in Stampin’ Rewards to all orders that reach the $250+ mark. This is the perfect perk for those who host parties or those who place large individual orders. You can earn rewards with a single order by purchasing yourself. Or you can have a party and collect orders from friends placing the orders altogether through a workshop order. Demonstrator orders, workshop orders, customer orders, and online orders can all qualify. The order must reach the qualifying amount with commissionable merchandise prior to shipping and tax.

The Next Paper Pumpkin Kit
Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ cards (3 of 3 designs) featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life! Each kit also contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple – the official bubble gum of the MLB! Chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later. Click here to watch the promotional video, get more peeks at the kit, and see what the Batter Up! kit is about. Coordinating colors: Basic White, Bumblebee, Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Real Red, Smoky Slate, Soft Suede
