WHAT’S ON THE JUNE BUFFET??? AND HURRY!!!!

Hey stampers…

Is summer finally here?  Where did May go?  Just sending a quick blog to keep you updated on the buffet and wondering what you think of the new catalog.  Did you get yours???  Leave a message if you want one.

CLASSIC GARAGE IS BACK

with a biker addition from ONE WILD RIDE... both are in the new 2019-2020 catalog.  This card will be on the buffet along with the others from the last class which you can mix and match.  However this card has a limited number because of the limited DSP in the packet.  BE SURE TO let me know you want to make this card in the COMMENT section so I can save one for you.  Otherwise, there will be lots of DSP from which to choose.  I love the set of gears…great Father’s, brothers, dad’s “anything!   Be sure to order the bundle NOW for ALL GEARED UP  and save 10%.

MEDITERRANEAN MOMENTS and BEAUTIFUL YOUall paired up thanks to Dawn Baier’s creativity at the last buffet.  Work on either one…and do a little paper piecing for added fun.

HURRY:  Don’t miss this opportunity to save on products….check out this link and get your favorites before they run out.  I closed the May HOST code so that the orders could be placed and some items were already sold out before I could get them into the computer…so HURRY!!  Be sure to use the new host code when you order.

NEW HOST CODE TODAY:  NW99NJBB

 

GRADUATION CARDS UPDATE

BECAUSE THEY CARE

PERENNIAL ESSENCE DSP – A WORK OF ART 

Just a peek at this gorgeous DSP from the 2019-2020 annual catalog – looks like a piece of canvas from Monet.  I thought the card designed by Connie Rae was perfect for the next buffet…what do you think??  So simple yet so elegant…just a piece of DSP with a gold embossed sentiment.  Please leave a comment…let me know if you are interested in working with this on TUESDAY June 11th…reminder to register.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION (Next available May 23rd)

As a follow-up to our May 14 current update, we want to provide some additional information regarding the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades situation.

Because of the unique circumstances around the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades created by the Trimmer line discontinuation, we have created a process exception requiring a significant amount of manual work in our systems. We have no plans to do this for any other products.

One of the challenges we faced was the timing of our notification system. Email notifications about products coming back into stock were only sent once per day. For an in-demand item like the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades, this notification could easily be sent after the item had been seen in the online store and sold out in a matter of hours. Our IT group has adjusted the notification system to send these emails hourly; moving forward, we anticipate this will help with notifications about other products.

As part of the workaround for this situation, and to minimize confusion, we have turned off the automated email notification for the blades. You and your customers will no longer be able to request an email when the blades are back in stock. We will notify you through a current update in advance, with the exact date and time Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades will become available for purchase again.

Because we want to honor customer requests for notification, we will send a one-time email to the email addresses submitted before this functionality was shut off, announcing the date and time of the next available product. This email will be sent to both customers and demonstrators on the list at the same time we post the current update for demonstrators with the same information. This will be the only time customers will be notified by Stampin’ Up! about the blades, due to the notification shut off. Moving forward, we ask that you share the date and time with your customers once we have shared it with you.

If you try to order the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades before the go live time, you will see an error that says, “You may not order 1 of item 126995 because of promotion restrictions.” This is tied to the system workaround to control the exact date and time of the product becoming available after receiving inventory in our distribution centers.

We recognize that this product line transition is less than ideal for you. We want to reiterate that we are committed to providing you with cutting blades until September 2019, and that we are committed to providing you with a better paper trimmer product. We appreciate your partnership and patience in this endeavor.

APRIL BUFFET CARDS AND TANGLES

Hi Stampers!  Hope every had a blessed Easter!  Such a beautiful day – the trees are all budded and ready to pop and the forsythia bloomed exactly on time!  The blue psylium is in bloom and the birds are singing their spring song!

Time is flying and I just realized I forgot to post some of the best photos Borgie captured at the last buffet.  Watching these stampers doing their best to untangle some linen thread was quite entertaining!

ALL TANGLED UP for Mother’s Day!

Olive linen thread gave this group a workout to finish this Mother’s Day Card

A CUP OF TEA and MOVING FORWARD

A CUP OF TEA FOR MOTHER’S DAY

The most popular card at the Tuesday buffet. A challenge but nonetheless, these veteran stampers did a beautiful job of choosing just the right teapot.

Top left:  Using clear vellum on top of Floral Romance DSP creates a beautiful effect on a flirty flamingo base that is embossed with the Tin Tile Dynamic folder.  Bottom: Cup and Teapot stamped on whisper white and covered with the beautiful vellum sheet in the Floral Romance DSP.  Inspired by Su Mohr.

CHANGE IS GOOD:  Product News

Things will start getting a bit crazy with the end of this catalog year and the arrival of the new catalog! Stampin’ Up! did make a couple of announcements that you may want to know about. It was announced on Tuesday  that due to recent supplier issues (and other factors), Stampin’ Up! will no longer be carrying the current die-cutting machine and trimmer: The Big Shot and Stampin’ Trimmer will be retiring. These changes are giving Stampin’ Up! the    opportunity to research and explore replacement options. And there will be a gap when we do not have a trimmer or die-cutting machine available. 
  • On April 15th at 1:00 pm the retirement list will post to the website. Products will be as supplies last- so if there is something you can’t live without. Get it sooner rather than later
  • If you have the Stampin’ Trimmer, you will want to grab replacement blades right away. Because of on-going issues with the manufacturer, the trimmer, replacement blades and mats, will be discontinued. Right now you can order 3 sets of replacement blades per order. Starting April 15th, this number will increase to 6. Over the next few months, there will be small batches of inventory arrive and it’s anticipated to be depleted rapidly. When those few small batches end, that will be the end of this trimmer.
  • Stampin’ Up! is changing its die cutting and dry embossing lines. Innovation requires risk, and in their pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, they’ve experienced more significant challenges than originally planned for, including some transition issues like the die inventory problems experienced beginning in March. The new dies and folders will continue to work with the die-cutting machine we currently carry but in the 2019-20 catalog there will not be a die-cutting machine. I expect that one will be announced at some point during the year. You can click here to read more about the transition. 

When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blade Refills will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, SU will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier.

The dies and folders that will be offered will not be from our current supplier. So there will be small changes: the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers). Click here for more details regarding the changes to our die-cutting machine, dies and embossing folders.

I post this and a few other comments from other demonstrators  on my Facebook page to encourage you.  I realize for many of you that this news may be a little jaw-dropping at first. I had a similar reaction. But after giving it a little more thought, reminding myself that change is an opportunity for new and better, and knowing what a strong company Stampin’ Up! has been for 30 years, I now anticipate some marvelous changes to come! And I’m excited.
