Bigger and Better on the Horizon

You may have heard that Stampin’ Up! Has decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer and Big Shot at the end of this catalog. Here is my take from this announcement. Stampin’ Up! has always had the best products, the best value and the best customer and demo support and when products don’t live up to the high standards that Stampin’ Up! has built their business on something must change!

The trimmer blades have been a manufacturing issue for a while now, leaving many frustrated with frayed edges. After multiple attempts to work with the manufacturer to remedy the situation it is time to retire the product and go back to the drawing board.

After many issues with dies on backorder, or unorderable status, Stampin’ Up! has decided to part ways with Sizzix, the middle man in our die manufacturing and the parent company of the Big Shot. While this may be shocking to some, what it really does is allow Stampin’ Up! to cut out the middle man, and work directly with a manufacturer to produce our dies and embossing folders. More control is key to this! That being said, a new option will be on the horizon.

So the takeaway from all of this:

1) If you have a trimmer, order additional blades now, limit 3 sets until 4-15 then you may order 6 sets. Stay tuned for a new trimmer option, but not with the new catalog debut.

2) You will still need a die cutting/embossing machine to use these items, so go ahead and order a Big Shot or if you already have one, order extra cutting plates. Rest assured, once Stampin’ Up! has retired the Big Shot you can still find cutting plates etc. at your local craft store or online. Stay tuned for a new option, but not with the new catalog debut.

Place an online order of $50 or more through my website and be placed into a drawing for a now retired SAB stamp set! Orders must be placed by April 30th The winner will be announced on my Facebook page on May 1st.

Letters in the mail

Do you remember the days of receiving letters in the mail? As a child I had a pen pal and what fun it was when a letter from her came in the mail!

Fast forward to modern day, do you get letters or cards in the mail? Do you feel nostalgic when you find a letter, card or even a simple piece of tape on the back of a photo frame that has your grandmother’s handwriting on it? I do, and this is in part why I create and teach card making. My goal is to start sending out cards I make to those who are important to me, my family, friends, people who attend my classes, people who place orders with me and the list goes on.

We as a society are losing the art of letter writing, the art of handwriting in this digital age, but think about how special that note, card, letter or piece of tape in your beloved family members handwriting is now that they have passed away.

So join me in helping to preserve this rapidly disappearing art, create a card and send it to someone special.

Hugs my crafty friends,

Tammy
