2020 August – December Mini Goes Live!

Everyone loves crafting for the holidays and Stampin’ Up! is giving us a Mini Catalog that is packed full of wonderful products! Our Holiday Catalog has been renamed and is now being called the August – December Mini, but you’ll be thrilled to know it has the same great selection of products.

August December Mini Catalog

If you are a regular customer of mine you should have received your catalog in the mail. If you haven’t received one yet, please contact me so I can get you your copy. Simply email me at StampwithJini@gmail.com

August – December Mini Catalog Organizational items – I bet you’re wondering if I’ve got my organizational items for this catalog and if I’ll be sharing them with you. Well of course I have, after all its a must. LOL! Seriously who doesn’t love to organize their craft area, right? And with our fall crafting it’s always great to have things at your finger tips.

I’ll be posting these items over the next few days for you – so stop back by often. Or if you don’t want to miss a thing, why not sign up to receive my blog posts right in your inbox? Click HERE to sign up (and then don’t forget to click on the link in the email you receive to activate your request to receive my information)

NEW Online Store Goes Live

Just a quick reminder about my Online Store that’s IMPORTANT :

Stampin’ Up! has launched our new websites today.   The links taking your directly to the product in my Online Store may not work as normal. They may simply work by taking you to my store but not to the product itself.    If you have any issues placing an order with me please let me know.  I’m happy to help.

Please remember these two very important things: When placing an order in the Online store: Please confirm you are shopping with me and that my name is listed as your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator (The new system will allow you to check out as a guest and bypass choosing a demonstrator. If that is the case I won’t get your order information and I won’t be able to mail catalogs, gifts, etc.).  My name is listed as Jini Merck and I live in Clarkesville, Georgia.

Since this is a NEW website, your bookmark and auto fill passwords may not work.

If that is the case you’ll want to create a new bookmark and sign in that way, saving it again to your password safe if you use one. Also, because of this your password may not work.  If that happens you will need to reset it. Because it is a new website and we are using a new email system for it, when you go to reset your password, the link emailed to you may go in your spam folder.  So you’ll want to check that if you don’t see it right shortly after you request it.

Please know that I’m here to help in any way as always. There may be a few bugs to start with in the new Online Store, so if you prefer for me to place your order for you I can. We can get through this together as always.   

Thanks and as always I appreciate you choosing me as your Demonstrator!

REDEEM YOUR BONUS DAY COUPONS STARTING TODAY!!!

You can start redeeming your Bonus Days coupons today! Place your order in my new Online Store or contact me to place the order. The choice is yours! But you won’t want to delay since these coupons are only good until August 31st and then they are gone for good!

When using your coupons in my Online Store you’ll want to enter them a bit differently than in the past. You will enter them in the check out screen.

And you’ll enter them one at a time then hit the apply button and then repeat for the number of coupons you’ll want to use.

Remember to make sure my name is at the top so I can send you your free gift!

Geared Up Garage

It the week before Father’s Day so I thought it would be a great time to share some wonderful sets that include Father’s Day sentiments. Today’s set is the Geared Up Garage stamp set (148590). It’s perfect for our guys who love those classic cars. And it is a perfect choice for my guy since he’s a classic card enthusiast. We spent a lot of time those first years going to car shows and swap meets. (I’ll share a photo with you later in the post of Larry’s baby with you.)

This first card combines the beautiful World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper (152491)

I love the way that the Brass Foil (153057) has been used for the gears and pulls out the foiling in the Designer Series Paper too. The combination of Bermuda Bay and Basic Black is quite striking in person.

And this next card uses the color theme from my husbands car in addition to some simple stamping which makes it a great choice if you are just building your stamping collection. Classic – the Basic Black, Smoky Slate and Real Red makes an impact.

The Geared Up Garage stamp set also has coordinating Garage Gears Dies (151812) which make it a favorite!

On a personal note, here is the photo I told you I’d share. Back when we were first married my husband was working on his 1957 Chevy that he got when he was in the Army. He hauled it all the way from California back to Georgia. Here is a snap shot of it.

He had just completed restoring it before we got married, so we recreated my parents wedding photo from 1958 with it. We’ve been married 33 years now, but it seems just like yesterday at times. I’m wearing my mother’s dress, with a corset and big wooden hoop under it. That was an experience!

More Organizational items for the 2020 Annual Catalog

Today I’ll be sharing with you my Die Case Inserts for our coordinating dies. I like the fact that these sit on my shelf with the stamp sets and have the same look. All nice and neat!

If the Die set is large I’ll add a second magnetic sheet to the other side of the case so I have plenty of room.

I simply print these Case Inserts off on Whisper White card stock, then trim and insert. Click HERE to learn more about that.

Here are Die Case Inserts for all the Dies found in the 2020 Annual Catalog – If you find an error or there is a problem please let me know.

2020 Annual Catalog Organizational Items

I’ve got some wonderful items to help make organizing your craft space easier for you while you’re waiting for those fun new colors and products to arrive. I’ve done this with each NEW Annual Catalog launch for years (you can find past items by looking under the organization category) and I hope you’ll find them useful too.

First I’ve created a quick reference for the Designer Series Paper. I like this chart and keep it handy when I’m looking for the colors in the Designer Series Paper. Everything you need is on this one easy chart.

2020-2021 Annual Catalog Designer Series Paper Chart PDF

I actually print this twice and cut one apart to put with my Designer Series Paper since the printing is bigger than what comes on the tag board backer. You can also keep my Design Tools & Color Swatch Books on your desk or with it too for easy reference. (I do both since I tend to bury the swatch book under everything on my desk when I’m creating, lol).

2020-2021 Annual Catalog Color Collection Inventory Chart

Want a quick way to know what colors you have on the go? I love this purse sized inventory list for keeping my items handy, so I’m sharing it with you. It’s one of my organizational items that everyone who is attending my week long Facebook Catalog Kickoff Celebration will receive with their Card Kits. It’s got all of our color families even the two In Color Families. Simply print, score, then fold to create a tri-fold reference chart that you can tuck in your purse

Color Collection Tri-Fold Inventory Chart PDF

Tip: Make sure when you are printing this chart to turn the second side so that it prints upside down. That way both sides will be in the same direction when using.

Labels, Labels, Labels – I love labels and these make things so easy. I like to have everything consistent so with the NEW 2020-2021 Catalog. I have created new labels for my hanging file folders, Refill drawers, and my Classic Ink Pads.

I know that the NEW Classic Ink Pads  come with these great labels stuck to the bottom for us to use (which I love),  but I like to also know the which Color Collection they belong to, so I still use these in addition to the ones already included. I simply place this on the lid of my Ink pads.

2020-2021 Annual Catalog File Drawer Labels (Avery 5167) PDF

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing more items to get you started along with my Dies Case Organizational Items with you.

If you don’t have a catalog and would like one, why not contact me today to find out how to get yours!

Just a couple of house keeping notes:

With the launch of the new catalog some of our items have been turned off due to the item being on back order and will be turned back on when the supply is available again. If you want any of these items I’m happy to notify you when they are available to order again. Simply contact me to be added to my wait list.

Also if you are looking at a Collection, you might find the Collection has been turned off but not the individual items, as just one of the products included in the Collection is on back order. You can add the individual items to your order.

You should see a pop up telling you what the situation is when shopping in the Online Store.

If you have questions please let me know I’m always happy to answer any questions you may have.

👑Peak Princess Fun & the Amazing Magnolia Lane Folding Album

Last weekend was my Peak Princess event. What’s that? Well it is a special afternoon of pampering for those Team members who have earned it. We enjoy the time together, food, played a game, and of course create a project.

This event was extra special since it was our largest group yet due to everyone’s hard work – and I added a bit of a luau theme to the snack table to celebrate.

The hit of the snack table was the Artichoke & Mushroom Toast – not really Hawaiian fair, but since the Hawaiian pizza rolls I was planning on were a flop when I tried them, this worked out well since everyone seem to enjoy them.

Here is the recipe if you want to try them yourself. I found them really easy to do and prepped everything the day before and then assembled before the event.

Artichoke & Mushroom Toast

Taste of Home

  • 36 slices French bread baguette (1/2 inch thick)
  • 3 T. Olive Oil, divided
  • ½ lb. sliced fresh mushrooms
  • ½ lb. sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 T. butter
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jar (7.5 oz) marinated quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/3 c. mayonnaise
  • 1 T. Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 2 c. Swiss cheese, shredded

Place bread on baking sheets; brush with 2 tablespoons oil. Broil 4-6 inches from heat for 1-2 minutes or until lightly toasted.

In a large skillet, sauté mushrooms with Italian seasoning in butter and remaining oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place artichokes in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Add mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese; cover and process until blended. Spread over toast slices; top with mushrooms and sprinkle with Swiss cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 4-6 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Yield 3 dozen

And here is the classroom waiting for everyone to arrive.

I shared the little Country Home Kit Kat Holders which were everyone’s “pillow gifts” on the table with you yesterday – I thought the thankful greeting was perfect to express my thanks to my team.

We enjoyed a game after everyone settled in –

Have you ever played the Right, Left Game? It’s so simple…. everyone starts with a package and then we passed our packages to the right or left depending on the Ink Pad story I read.

Lot’s of fun and laughter to go around!

After we did a Make n Take and created these lovely Folding Albums. My friend, Marni gave me one of these little albums last spring in a swap and I loved it so much. I saved it since I knew it was the perfect project for the day. I simply put my own spin on it.

It wasn’t hard to choose the paper I wanted to use. The Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper is so striking and you’ve got a ton of pattern choices in the package. Here is what the album looks like opened.

I’m looking forward to filling it with some photos!

Here is the gang working on theirs

Want to see how I made this album? The Team enjoyed making them so much I thought you would too!

Amazing Magnolia Lane Folding Album Video Tutorial

Oh, I almost forgot the tag or chip board is simply the extra piece in our Specialty Designer Series Paper packs – How great is that? You can up cycle it!

So what do you think? Want to make one for yourself? I think they make great gifts and of course you could stamp on the inside diamonds if you prefer rather than use it as an photo album. I think there are endless ways to use this amazing album!

Here is a printable version with the complete supply list I used.

2019 Incentive Trip – Maui, here we come!

I have been trying to figure out how to share my good news with you all… and it is truly big news!

On August 26th, I got several customer orders that put me over top allowing me to achieve the Stampin’ Up 2019 Incentive Trip to Maui.  On October 6th reports will be finalized and I will be able to redeem the points for an all-expenses paid trip for two to Maui July 2020. I can’t even begin to tell you just how excited my husband, Larry is about this trip!!!

I am still processing the fact that I’ve reached my goal and pinching myself to make sure it’s not a dream. I was not sure that I should share until it was official, but I wanted to go ahead now since so many of you have been following my progress.

So here goes and all I can say is Thank you!

Thank you to my AMAZING customers.  Every order you place allows me to do what I love AND share my love of crafting with you. I can’t tell you how much your support and friendship mean to me.

Thank you to the best team ever! The Blue Mountain Stampers thank you for sharing your talent, inspiring me, and keeping me on track! You have been working hard too, and becoming successful in each of your own ways. I am so proud of you, and that fact you let me be a part of your Stampin’ Up! journey. I’m so honored that you have you chosen to join our team! I could not have achieved this trip without you!

Thank you to those NEW customers who reached out to me and placed orders. You’ve touched me deeply with your kind comments and your desire in wanting to help me reach my goal.

Thank you to my biggest fans who have stamped with me over the past 10 years! You refer your friends to me. You share your life and encourage me to become better. You are the inspiration! Because of you I feel like I can achieve anything.

Thank you to my husband and family who have been supportive and have patiently waited for me and pitched in when I needed it.

Thank you to my adopted Stampin’ Up! family who have given me their friendship, believed in me, mentored me, and inspired me to reach for the stars.

Thank you so much for making this goal and my dream come true!

How to Reserve yours by September 3rd?

EMAIL me directly at StampwithJini@gmail.com with your information listed below to save your spot in the share: (Note: For multiple shares – contact me for a shipping quote…a Flat Rate Envelope can hold quite a bit).

Please include the following information in your email:

1.  Full Name

2.  Mailing Address (US only)

3.  Indicate how many Paper Shares and/or Design Tool & DSP Swatch Book sets you would like to reserve

4.  Email for PayPal invoicing

When your shares/swatch book order fills, I will email a PayPal invoice for payment process (around September 1st, the first batch is going out tomorrow).  I will then place my order with Stampin’ Up! once payment is received for the share/swatch book.

PayPal is easy — and a PayPal account is not required to make your payment.  Just an email address and credit/debit card.  When you receive your PayPal invoice by email, you can choose to pay using your PayPal funds or by a credit/debit card.  Simply follow their instructions to make your payment via the method that is most convenient for you. It should be simple!

And of course, if you live locally – just let me know if you prefer to pick up your items rather than pay for the shipping and I’ll invoice you accordingly.

NOTE:  The first share/swatch books if placed on September 4th can be expected in about 2 weeks after I place the order. Here is how my paper shares/swatch books work… first I save your spot and collect your payment, then I place the order, receive the order, cut and package the paper, package up your swatch book/share for mailing and then take them to the Post Office to ship.

More It Starts with Art

Have you seen this set filled with wonderful crafting images? I really enjoy using it and wanted to share some more swaps that I received using this suite of products found on pages 52-54 of the Annual Catalog.

I really love the color combination of the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper (149489) combined with our In Colors Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose on this first card which uses a fancy fold.

Isn’t it great how all our products work together? While these two colors are not in the Designer Series Paper they work to create a rich color pallet for this card.

And here are some more cards that use the colors listed in the Designer Series Paper itself.

So what do you think? Can you see the possibilities? Why not stop by my online store and see all the coordinating products in this Suite?

Goooooaaaaalllll

On a personal note – Did you know every year I set goals for my Stampin’ Up! business?  One of my longtime goals is to earn the incentive trip. This year I am excited to announce, with less than 2 months left in the Stampin Up year, I am closer than I’ve ever been. 

If you have been thinking of placing an order the past month or two and haven’t done so, I would really appreciate your help reaching my goal by placing an order today. If you do so by August 18th, not only will you get products you love, but you’ll also receive a FREE gift from me an exclusive Class Tutorial PDF.

  • You can place your order online

Team Craft Time & More

Tomorrow is my Team Craft Time, this is a monthly event where we gather and craft together – it is a free style event where anything goes and it’s a lot of fun. We simply bring what ever we are working on and enjoy each others company while crafting.

Want to see some of what my team has been working on? Here are some of the swaps from the July meeting earlier this month everyone shared.

These first two cards use the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper (149478) and the Memorable Mosaic Stamp Set (149226)

Don’t you love the new Timeless Label Punch (149516)? It not only coordinates with this stamp set, but it’s a great punch for all kinds of sentiments and comes in a Bundle too so you can save 10% when you purchase the stamp set and punch together!

And here is a lovely card made with the Magnolia Blooms stamp set (152729) found in our Experience Creativity brochure.

This brochure is filled with wonderful stamp sets and getting started bundles that are perfect for the new stamper, but great for the avid stamper too since products coordinating with items from the 2019 Annual Catalog, like this stamp set.

And here are two cards using the Butterfly Gala stamp set (148580) – LOL the swappers were surprised to see they were both inspired by the same project this month!

This first one is done in Grapefruit Grove

and this second one is done is 2018 In Color, Call Me Clover

And this final card is a Inside Block, fancy fold card using the Beauty Abounds stamp set (148726).

Such a fun card and we’ll be learning how Pat made this card during our August meeting – Sharing is the best!

Here are a couple of more pictures from the July Meeting where we always do some Make n’ Take projects and celebrate achievements together

Getting Started with the Stamp Cleaning Pad

Have you seen this great new option for cleaning our stamps? I LOVE this particularly for our Photopolymer stamps since it helps clean those tough stains that discolor our stamps and make it harder to see through them. Check out my quick video showing you more.

Getting Started with the Stamp Cleaning Pad & Refill Video Tutorial

So what do you think? I think it’s a great add on to our Simply Shammy and Stampin’ Scrub cleaning options. Our Stamp Cleaning Pad (147047) is a great deal at just $7.50. You’ll make to make sure you order the Refill (149661) when you order your pad so that you don’t have to worry about running out of this great cleaning option.

It’s back – Storage by Stampin’ Up!

I’m so excited to have our Storage by Stampin’ Up! back and available to order. I really love the pieces I already have and am excited to be able to build on them.

Our new storage is modular, so it gives us tons of options to individualize it to our crafting space and needs. And we can build it as our budget allows – which is a win, win!

If you haven’t already seen the individual pieces you’ll want to.

And great news in playing with my storage pieces I’ve customized mine with an simple additional step to make things even easier for me.

Now with a quick look I I can things back in their place – After all I love to organize things, as you know. And today I’m sharing it with you – So here is what I’ve come up with.

Can you see what I’ve added? I like to have things put back in their place and visually see what I’ve left laying out on my desk – and laying around my creative space. I seem to be a “messy” creative person. Sound familiar? I think that is a lot of us. LOL!

It’s simple I’ve simply added a piece of card stock and one of my organizational labels to the bottom of my Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays! Super simple, right? And now anyone can put things where they belong with a quick glance!

And I’ve done the same thing to my Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays so that as I build my collection I can put them right back in their spots!

Because these trays come apart this process is a easy one. And when you want to change the labeling system it will be easy too. Simply take them apart and replace the card stock colors as needed.

Want to do this too? Here are the measurements for you-

Ink Pad & Marker Storage Trays

• Cut each piece of card stock to 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

• Then add one of my Annual Catalog File Drawer Labels that you can find and print HERE that I shared with you earlier.

• Add a bit of Snail or a Mini Glue Dot to each piece of Card Stock and adhere to the shelf.

Stampin’ Blends Storage Trays

• Cut each piece of card stock to 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ (perfect for those strips we have left over)

• Add a bit of Snail or Mini Glue Dot to each piece of Card stock and adhere to the slot

Yep! it’s that simple – and not only will you know exactly where your supplies go, you’ll also have a beautiful array of colors showing in those spots that are empty while you are crafting too!

Now the hard part – deciding how I want to stack them! Oh, wait there is no stress about that, since I can move them around as I play with my crafting items until I’m happy! LOVE IT!!!
