Housekeeping Notes…

This has nothing to do with cleaning your actual house…although mine needs cleaning and I could use a housekeeper! 

No, I'm cleaning up the stack of Post-Its I have reminding me to let you know about the latest goings-on at Stampin' Up! and Too Cool Stamping.  Let's get started…

Holiday Order Deadline & Holiday Wish List

December 15th is the deadline to get your holiday orders placed in time to receive them by Christmas.  Stampin' Up! does not guarantee delivery by Christmas, because delivery times may vary during this busy time of year, but it's a reasonable estimate.  

If you've been a good little stamper and would like Santa to bring you more stamps this year, be sure to print out the Holiday Wish List!  It's a handy list that you can fill out and give to your family and friends to make Christmas shopping easier for them!  They contact me to place the order by December 15, and I'll wrap the presents, and throw in a surprise Stocking Stuffer just for you!

Too Cool Stamping Gift Certificates

Did you know you can purchase Stampin' Up! gift certificates from me in any denomination?  It's true!  They are good for one year from the date of purchase.  Contact me today to order.  

Perfect Handmade Holiday Bundles Promotion

The Holiday Bundles promotion is still in full swing until December 16th.  These are special pairings of products available for 20% off the regular price.  Check out the complete selection and all the details in my Holiday Bundles post.

Watercolor wonder crayons 120949LWatercolor Wonder Crayons Are Now Available!

After five months of waiting on a problem to be resolved with the manufacturer, the Watercolor Wonder Crayons are now available! 

Woohoo!  Yippee!  Yeehaw!  I LOVE these crayons because I love doing the watercolor techniques with the Blender Pens, and now I will have every Stampin' Up! color for my watercoloring! 

I ordered the Watercolor Crayons New Color Kit version, which has all of the new colors from the re-configured Color Collections.  Since I already had the old kit (all my crayons came in one tin), I was especially happy to learn that this "update" kit provided four new tins, one for each Color Collection, along with all the new crayons.  I will just add my crayons that I already own and will have four completely updated sets!  Awesomeness!

If you don't yet have Watercolor Crayons, I highly recommend purchasing at least one set to try—you will LOVE them, too!  And they are only $16.95 per set.  Don't forget to order Blender Pens to use with them! 

2-1/2" Circle & Fancy Flower Punches Are Back!

The quality issues have been resolved on the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and Fancy Flower punches, and they are currently available for order! 

The 2-1/2" Circle Punch is the extra-large punch that is featured in the Holiday Mini on page 19 and works so well to create beautiful medallions and focal points on your projects.  I used it on my Night Owl Silhouette and Box-In-A-Bag projects.

The Fancy Flower Punch is one of my favorites and is great for doing the scrunched flower technique.  I used it on this Greenhouse Gala card.

2-3/8" Scallop Circle & Ornament Punches Unavailable

There are some quality issues with the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch and Ornament Punch, and both are temporarily unavailable for order.  Unfortunately, this also effects the Tags Til Christmas Bundle with the Ornament Punch, which is also no longer be available.  You may still order the Tags Til Christmas Bundle with the Decorative Label Punch, and that punch is much more versatile for year-round stamping!

I will keep you updated on the availability of these products.

Stampin' Scrub Unavailable

Stampin' Up! just announced yesterday that the Stampin' Scrub will be unavailable for an undetermined amount of time, possibly months, due to a problem finding a new supplier for raw materials for that item. 

This is an especially problematic time for this item to be gone since thousands of new demonstrators who purchased the 50% off Starter Kit should have been getting one with their Kit.  In true Stampin' Up! style, these new recruits will be able to select a free stamp set worth $24.95 in place of their missing Scrub.  I love this company!

I will keep you updated on the availability of this item.  Until they are back in stock, I recommend cleaning your stamps using either Stampin' Mist on a thick paper towel, or with baby wipes.


Well, that's all of my announcements for now, but look for some more exciting Too Cool Stamping News coming soon…

    1. angie–just wondering where you read about the stampin’ scrub replacement deal for new demos. i have a new downline and am wondering if she’ll be getting a SS or if she’ll get to pick a replacement set instead. i’ve tried looking at the updates from the home office, but just wondering…thanks.

    2. Jenn, the info is in the most recent Current Update (dated 12/3) along the bottom of the demo homepage. Your downline can tell if she is getting her SS by checking her order status. They are supposed to be sending more info to the new recruits that are affected.
