Hi, happy April! After such a huge month last month, I can’t see April showing any signs of slowing down. The Last Chance Products sale continues. I went through my catalogue yesterday and highlighted all the retiring products. There are quite a few of my favourites that will no longer be available after 2 May 2022. The Tailored Tag punch was one I have used a lot for creating fun backgrounds and for titles too. It has already sold out! Of course, you all know how much I LOVE the Tasteful Textiles 3D Embossing Folder for adding just a hint of texture to a card base or patterned paper. That too has already sold out! There are quite a few die sets I am going to miss such as Messages, Ornate Frames, Stitched so Sweetly, Hippo & Friends and Tasteful Labels. I won’t list all the stamps and papers I will miss – we would be here for too long! It is sad to see them all retiring.
Unfortunately, there is a price increase for Shipping & Handling from today. All the details are below. And speaking of price increases, there will be price increases on many products when the new catalogue launches on 3 May 2022 so if you wanted to replenish your supplies at the current price, now is the time. For example, A4 Cardstock packs will be $16.25 (from $15.25), Adhesive Sheets will be $19.25 (up from $17.50), Seal Refills will be $9.75 (up from $9.50) and Stampin’ Dimensionals will be $7.50 (up from $6.00).
I know you are all hanging out to see the new catalogue. It’s pretty awesome, I have to say. I finalised the Mailing Selector yesterday so if you are one of my lovely customers, I have a complimentary copy of the catalogue heading your way soon! Thank you so much for being so supportive of my small business! You are the best!
Okay, what else is in store for April? On Saturday, Stampin’ Up!® CEO Sara Douglass is hosting an online fundraising event – Making A Difference For Ukraine. All the details are below. Demonstrators (and any new Demonstrators who sign up this month) are now able to place a pre-order for some of the new goodies. I have just received notification that my small order has just shipped! Woohoo! We also have a new Creative Prompt for April 2022 as well as a new Host Code. Let’s get into it…
Last Chance Sale
The 2021–2022 Annual Catalogue will be retiring soon! It’s always bittersweet to see a classic Stampin’ Up!® catalogue take a trip to retirement. But, we’re looking forward to all the new products on their way—and we hope you are, too! Stock up on your favourite products before they’re gone for good! Save up to 50% on essential craft supplies. This selection of Last Chance Products is only available while supplies last.
Shipping & Handling Price Increase – from 1 April 2022
I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing. Starting 1 April, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $5.95 to $6.95—or by one percentage point, from 5% to 6% of the total order amount—whichever is greater. I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me. Stampin’ Up!® is only one of many companies that have had to increase their shipping and handling costs in response to the global supply chain crisis. Stampin’ Up!® has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so we can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products we love.
Making a Difference for Ukraine
On Saturday at 4am AWST (1am AEDT) time, Stampin’ Up!® CEO Sara Douglass is hosting a fundraising event on Facebook to support those affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. They’ll be sharing 6 different cards as well as a sneak peek of some of the new Designer Series Papers from the 2022 Annual Catalogue. If you are awake at that time, or you want to catch the reply, you can find details of the event here.
Hostess Code – April 2022
The new Host Code for April is now live. When ordering please use the code APUF6Y6E if your order is less than $250 to receive a little thank you gift from me. If your order is over $250, please do not use this code as you will be entitled to your own Hostess Benefits (plus you’ll still receive a little thank you gift from me).
Stampers Workshop Creative Prompts
It’s time for a new Creative Prompt for April 2022. I’ve created a thread on my Stampers Workshop Facebook page (pinned to the top of the page) and I’d like to invite anyone who wants to share their take on the challenge to do so in the comments section of that post. You don’t need your own blog, just upload a photograph of your card directly into the comments. Please upload photographs only. Do not link to other blogs or websites. Regrettably, these will be removed. My hope is these prompts will inspire and challenge us all to create. By sharing in the comments section we can comment, support and encourage each other. I do hope you’ll join me. Here’s the new creative prompt…
It’s going to be another fantastic month! I hope you have a great one filled with lots of crafting time!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
