Suite Of The Month

The January to June 2021 mini catalog and Sale-A-Bration 2021 brochure should have arrived in your snail mail box. It’s filled with lots of awesome paper crafting products that you will need! (This is not about wants, it is needs!) If you haven’t received your catalogue yet, please let me know and I will arrange to get one to you. If you haven’t seen it, and want to have a browse now, you can view the online version here. Make yourself a cup of your favourite drink (hot or cold) and get your wish list started.

I have chosen 5 product Suites that will end up on my shelves because of their unique punches, cute snail mail images, splashes of colour or because ice cream is the theme. Yes, ice cream has it’s own suite!!! We usually are in the opposite season to any seasonal products in the mini catalogues, but this time we got summer and ice cream!

One product suite will be highlighted each month starting in January. I hope these suites are on your shopping list because you will earn a free make and take kit when you purchase the designated suites. Then meet me in Zoom to assemble the kits while I demonstrate where all the pieces go. If you miss the Zoom social, a Youtube link will be sent to you so you can assemble the kits at your leisure.

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. We are anticipating that there will be at least 5 demonstrators participating each month. This means that you will get a minimum of 10 different ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. Although you will only get the kit for my make ‘n takes, you will be able to make all the other projects because you have purchased the suite! We are still finalising who is going to be participating, and it won’t necessarily be the same people every month.

Please order early in the month if you want to participate in the Zoom socials since the socials will be held on the third Wednesday of the month, 9:00-10:00am and 6:30-7:30pm, AEDT. For January, I have to change the Wednesday night class, so the evening class will be on Tuesday 19th at 6:30 and the morning class will be on Wednesday 20th at 9:00

I will need some time to prepare your kit and post it to you. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll ship your make and take kit to you automatically for that month.

You are welcome to order any and all of the suites on the same order as well so you can earn and spend all the host rewards. During January and February, you will also earn Sale-A-Bration rewards on your orders. For each $90 that you spend you will earn a level 1 reward, and $180 get you a level 2 (or 2 level 1 rewards). Reach $500 in sales (excluding shipping) and you will also earn the Sale-A-Bration host only stamp set, Punch Party. If your order stays under $250 (excluding shipping), please use the host code on the side when ordering.

Here are the Suites being featured each month. Links to my online store to order these products will be available on January 5th, after the catalog goes live. All page numbers refer to the January-June 2021 catalog.

January – Snail Mail Suite, pages, 54-55, featuring those cute snails I mentioned!

February – Ice Cream Corner Suite, pages 48-49, a bright and warm color palette and ice cream cone punch!

March – Hydrangea Hill Suite, pages 18-19, 2 shades of purple pearls and purple acetate sheets!

April – Dandy Garden Suite, pages 24-27, a dragonfly punch in 2 sizes!

May – Oval Occasions, page 65, 2 sizes of ovals in one punch! Build your own suite to reach a minimum of $90 in orders (excluding shipping).

If you are not interested in these suites, I’ll still reward you with a different set of make and take kits with a qualifying order.

If you want to buy additional items and your order is going to be over $250, please click on the ‘Shop now’ button on the side.

I am looking forward to catching up with you and sharing my projects later this month

Paper crafting blog hop – Forest Greenery Suite

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! Our theme this month is “Suite Spotlight”. You may have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog. Wasn’t her project fantastic?

A suite is a range of products which are easier to order because you only need one item number and you get the entire suite! This makes ordering so easy when you love everything and have to have it all! I have chosen the Forever Greenery suite to make my card. The name is a bit of a misnomer, as there is no green in my card. Did anyone say that ferns can’t be pink?

As the DSP is shades of green, I haven’t used any of it in my card. The elements of the suite that I have used are the Forever Fern bundle, Greenery embossing folders (this comes as a set of 2 narrower embossing folders), Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty DSP (you are going to want this) and the gold twine from the Forever Greenery Trim combo pack. As you can see you cannot choose not to have any item from this suite, you NEED them all. The colour combination is Smokey Slate, Rococo Rose and Magenta Madness.

Click on the button below to hop over to Sue’s blog to see which suite she has chosen to share with us.

Thanks for hopping with us. If you get lost along the way here is the complete list of hop stops.

Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop April 2020 – Ornate Garden Suite

Thank you for joining us for our Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Monthly Team Blog Hop! We are so happy that you could join us today for this blog hop for ideas and creative inspiration. We are a group of Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from around the world that are taking part in training that is helping us to build a successful Stampin’ Up!® business and reach some goals we have set. We really appreciate your support.You may be starting here or may have come from another blog – either way, you can find the link list at the bottom of this post so that you can see every blog post and idea today.

Have you seen the Ornate Garden suite that is coming in the new catalogue? I LOVE everything about this suite! The sentiments are lovely, the dies are beautiful and the DSP is amazing! Hence my project today is a set of cards.

I couldn’t decide which DSP to use so I went with the one side of each page. During social isolation I find that a great way to stay in contact is to send cards. Everyone loves getting happy mail in their post box and using your DSP is a quick and easy way to make lots of pretty cards to use to spread some love! We have a sneak peek of a new colour in this DSP, it is called Bumblebee. I have used Crushed Curry as a alternative for the moment

Thank you so much for coming by today! We have an amazing line up of Stampin’ Up!® demonstrators from around the world, and we know you are going to love all the amazing projects that you are going to see today. Don’t miss one blog link. Remember you are currently on my page – Tracy Held. See who is below me to know where to go next.

If you live in Australia and don’t have a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator I would love to help you fulfill your stamping needs. Below are the products that I have used in this project. Click on any of the images to go to my online store.
