Stampin’ Up! Online Host Club Openings and a Little Blog Candy!

Hey, y’all!  Happy Saturday!

I’ll be back this evening with a card share – I’m taking part in the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop today – as their Special Guest!  How exciting is that?  So – watch for that post later, okay?

Right now – I’d like to remind y’all about an opportunity to take part in one of my Online Host Clubs!  I’ve had a great response – but…I’ve got a few extra spaces to fill to round out a complete club and accommodate a couple folks who really want to get a club going!  So…if you’ve got a long wish list from this great new catalog – take advantage of a chance to gather up the goodies!

Online Host Club Logo

Here’s how it works:

You’ll sign up for a 6 month term and commit to:

  • A $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • Using the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

Once 6 members have joined, a random draw will determine your host month and you are guaranteed:

  • A $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • $15.00 minimum of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host month.

Here’s a look at the host sets in question – remember they can ONLY be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards and you only get THOSE when you place an individual order over $150 OR you’re the “host” on a workshop that goes over $150 (and each month is guaranteed to be a $150 show – minimum!!).

  • You earn TWO Peppermint Reward points for every $25 that you order on your Host Club Orders.  So your $25.00 order earns TWO Peppermints every month, a $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 12 reward points during your membership, building up your Peppermints towards FREE Items!
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Month
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of the 6 months, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term

During your host month you’re welcome to gather extra orders to increase your host rewards (just give your friends the host code for their orders), it’s that easy! And if you already have 5 other friends that want to do this, you can start your own Exclusive Club!

So – if it sounds like fun, give me a shout at and get a spot reserved!

Now – Blog Candy!

Yesterday was my birthday (I am 29 plus Expedited Overnight Shipping and Handling…) AND I’ve lost 125 pounds – putting me at my goal weight (hey – even my doctor is happy where I am!) and officially putting me in the “maintaining” category, not the “dieting” place!

So – I’m celebrating those two milestones by GIVING away….

Nope – Your eyes are not deceiving you!  I am giving away a complete Stamparatus to one lucky winner! 🙂 🙂 🙂

One might say that…my loss is your gain!

So to speak.

How do you get entered to win?

Leave me a comment ON THIS BLOG POST!  What is your favorite new thing in the catalog?  Could be a Suite – some Designer Paper – or a favored stamp set.  Maybe it’s the Stamparatus!?!  Whatever it is – let me know!

You’ve got until the end of the day on Friday – 29 Jun 18, to leave your comment and be entered to win!  On Saturday morning, the 30th,  I’ll use my handy Random Number Generator to select the lucky winner and let everyone know in that day’s blog post.

Please note, per the Demonstrator rules from Stampin’ Up!, anyone can leave a comment, but I’m only able to ship Stampin’ Up! merchandise to addresses within the United States. Thanks for your understanding and good luck!! 🙂

So – Online Host Club!  Looking for some folks who want to gather goodies and earn free stuff!  And don’t forget to leave me a comment and get entered to win the Stamparatus!

  10. Sandra Warthen

    I am so envious of your loss. It is NOT an easy thing! This was an awesome catalog-how do I pick a favorite? I love Animal outing because of it’s “cuteness” and Enjoy Life has the most lovely of sentiments. Sea of textures bundle is going to give hours of enjoyment–See, I just can’t decide on one.

    • stampsnlingers

      You sound like me – they’re ALL favorites!! And – it took a bit of work (which you saw in person!!). Thanks much, Sandy – good luck in the draw! 🙂

  11. D Murphy

    Congrats on the weight loss (WOW, that took a lot of dedication) and Happy Birthday, too !!!

    My favorite new thing in the catalog is the Petal Promenade Suite … so gorgeous.

    Also, this isn’t “etched in stone” because I’m a woman and can change my mind and there are way too many gorgeous and fun things in catalog to really pick just one 🙂 !!! HA HA !!!


    • stampsnlingers

      Ha ha!! I feel ya – I have a new “favorite” every time I break out a new set!! Thank you so much, Robbie – and yes. It took some effort… 🙂 Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  14. Kim hickok

    Wonderful that you are now maintaining. Dreams do come true. I love love the stamp set with the English bulldog and park benches. Stamparatus might be needed to get that stamped. Although have no clue how they work.

    • stampsnlingers

      Sitting Pretty – great stamp set! Thank you so much, Kim!! Good luck in the draw – and…I’ll try to use the Stamparatus one of these days in a Sunday video! 🙂

  15. Jean Goerlach

    My favorite new product is EVERYTHING! But if I really must choose, I’d say it’s the Animal Outing stamp and dies.

    • stampsnlingers

      EVERYTING – excellent choice, Jean!! 🙂 And that Animal Outing is very cute, indeed! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  16. Babe O'Mara

    Happy Birthday and a big CONGRATS on your weight loss. Way to go!!! My favorite item in the catalog is the Time for Tea Suite. Please enter me in your giveaway.

  17. Eunice Stoneman

    WOW! You are a very determined and dedicated girl to accomplish that epic weight loss. Congratulations! A very Happy Birthday to you as well. I am not entering your contest as I live in BC, but I just wanted to tell you that you are an inspiration to others. Keep on keeping on!

    • stampsnlingers

      That’s very sweet, Eunice! Thanks for taking the time to leave this congrats comments!! And I’m happy that you find inspiration in my cards! 🙂

  18. Rosie Kean

    I love the “Rooted in Nature” set as well as the “Big Wishes”. It is hard to choose!!

    • stampsnlingers

      Both are very cool, for sure! Thanks much, Rosie – and good luck in the draw! 🙂

  19. Congrats and Happy Birthday, all the work was worth the effort. Thanks so much for sharing your tips and ideas. I for one need help with inspiration and it’s great to get help from someone that’s already done the tried and trials part. So many great new things to choose, but I have been enjoying the Highland Heather paper, such a fresh and calming color.
    Enjoy your weekend, even though your away from home. GOT stamps though right.

    • stampsnlingers

      That new color is gorgeous, isn’t it? I was sorry to see Wisteria Wonder leave us – but…I do love Highland Heather! Thanks very much – and I’m glad I can provide inspiration, ideas and help! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

    Congratulations Mary, on your amazing, spectacular weightloss! I know just exactly how difficult that was. And, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  21. Oh my word, girl…..ConGrAtuLaTioNs!!!! And thanks for celebrating with US!!!! I’m loving the whole Rooted in Nature thing right now! (That might change tomorrow though b/c there’s SO much to LOVE!)

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – that’s one of my fave’s too! And yes – I might change my mind with every new set I use!! LOL!! Thanks so much, Kathy! 🙂

  22. Lynne Stephens

    My favorite thing about the new catalogue is the Color Revamp. Color has the ability to affect our spirits deeply and is so foundational to what we do as stampers. So I am really grateful that SU has brought back some truly beautiful “old” colors (Blackberry Bliss, Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana, Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo!) and has added some lovely new ones. I’m grateful that SU felt free to say, “Hey, we really liked that color! Let’s bring it back!” Not every company would do that, and I love SU’s commitment to making things better.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes! Love love love the “new” colors! And yes – making things better and keeping it new and fresh is absolutely one of our best things! Thanks so much, Lynne – and good luck in the draw! 🙂

  23. Peggy Hendricks

    Congrats on your stunning weight loss, Mary!! What an achievement!! My favorite thing from the new catalog is the Graceful glass suite. I am thrilled when new products/techniques are taught and are so easy!

    • stampsnlingers

      That’s a gorgeous suite, indeed! Love that Vellum paper! Thank you so much, Peggy!! Best of luck in the draw! 🙂

  24. Pam Zorn

    I love the Rooted In Nature bundle. I feel it is a very versatile set with so many possibilities! I also really like that it can be combined with one of my favorite stamp sets, Lovely As A Tree.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes yes and YES! I love that bundle, too! Thanks, Pam – and good luck in the draw! 🙂

  25. Pat C.

    Wow, Mary! That’s some really great blog candy! And congrats on the weight loss! 👏🏻
    There is so much awesomeness in the new catty, one of my favorites is the Follow Your Dreams bundle.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes, that dreamcatcher and die see are wonderful, aren’t they? Thanks very much, Pat! Bets of luck in the draw!

  26. Darryl Robbins

    Happy Birthday! Congrats on moving to “maintaining ” club. The favorite thing for the new Catalog at this point is Blueberry Bushel stamp pad and paper. I heart heart heart it!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much, Darryl! I’m ever so happy to be in that club, I can tell you! And I heart heart HEART Blueberry Bushel, too! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  27. Paula Poindexter

    Congratulations on your achievements Mary! It’s a wonderful thing to lose a half a person. Keep the maintenance up kiddo!
    Happy Birthday !
    Now for the blog candy! WOW!
    My favorite thing is the Tea Time Suite! I want it ALL!
    Oh! And half of all the DSP this catalog.

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL!! I’m pickin’ up what you’re putting down, Paula!! 🙂 Thanks so much. And – now comes the hard part…KEEPING it off! Bleh! 🙂

  28. Kathy Fennell

    Well Happy Belated Birthday Ms. Mary! And a big “CONGRATULATIONS” on reaching your weight loss goal, that is fabulous! 🙂 No easy feat, you should be very proud!
    I must say that my favorite item in the new catalog is the Natures Poem Suite! From the stamp set and dies to the paper and accessories the possibilities are endless! Have a good day Mary! 🙂

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh my – yes, that’s one of my favorites, too!! Love every single piece! Thank you so much, Kathy and good luck in the draw! 🙂

  29. Maryanne Willequer

    Mary, your weight loss is an awesome accomplishment! Congratulations! I have to admit I fell in love with the Share What You Love DSP from the moment I saw it! What’s not to love about it, with all those beautiful sheets with pearlized accents? Thanks for your wonderful offer and a chance to win the Stamparatus!

    • stampsnlingers

      Gorgeous paper, for sure! I’ve bought WAAY too much of it! 🙂 Thanks very much, Maryanne – and good luck in the draw! 🙂

  30. Jeffie Kopp

    Happy birthday! And congratulations on your fabulous achievement! I love all the new DSP, so much fun to get to play with all the new pretty papers!

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – the new papers are simply fabulous!! SU! outdid themselves this time! Thank you so much, Jeffie!! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  31. Susan K

    BIG Congratulations on your weight loss and for reaching your goal. What a birthday present to yourself! Happy day and keep celebrating! So much to love about the new catalog and I’m still trying to decide what I like best, but so far it is the new color revamp. I love the new colors and am happy to see some retired favorites back. (Blueberry bushel is my fave too!)

    • stampsnlingers

      Hey Susan – thank you so much! Love the new colors – and BB is one of my favorites!! 🙂

  32. Karen L.

    WOW!! 125lbs……that is quite an accomplishment! That is a whole other person!! Now comes the hard part……maintaining!! And also a Happy Birthday……I know about those “extra” holding & charges!! I like a couple new items in the new catalogue. #1 is “Treat Time” & #2 is “Itty Bitty Greetings”. I like to do small paper craft gift holders, etc for thank yous & special occasions for family & friends… you never can have too many words & greetings. I sure hope my # comes up in the draw…..I am kinda frugal when it comes to spending on something that my “stamp-a-ma-jig” will do the job…..sorta!! Would be a real treat!! Again, congratulations on both of your milestones!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Karen! Yes, the Stamparatus is cool – and is a great addition to the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig! And yes – the maintaining is harder than the losing on so many levels! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  33. Val Pass

    The stamparatus is pretty terrific and so are you — losing 125 pounds. I can only dream.

    • stampsnlingers

      It just took the right “reason” for me to do it, I guess! I wish I could say I enjoyed it – but…I really didn’t! Well – except for buying new clothes and not hating how I look in them! Thanks so much, Val! 🙂

  34. Susan Heine

    The Stamparatus will ensure much success to precision cardmakers who have had too many “misplaced” stampings in the past. Mary, I did not know you used to be in a position to lose 125#…glad your heart did not shrink, but seems happy and generous. Shalom, Susan Heine

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh yes – I sure was! It took a good many years to get there, but get there I did! So – I hope to never ever get back to that place! Thank you so much, Susan – and best of luck in the draw! 🙂

  35. Janice M

    There are not enough words to tell you what a great accomplishment you have made!! You should be so proud! You now have all the tools you need to help maintain your goal, so don’t be too hard on yourself….we all have good days and bad.
    My favorite item in the new catalog has to be Animal Outing….I love all the elements in this suite.
    Hope you have a wonderful birthday!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you very much, Janice! I’m having to remind myself that a day “off” will not add 125 pounds back! 😉 But – a month MIGHT!! So…just have to remember it’s a marathon, not a sprint! Appreciate the kind words. I love the animal outing – it’s so cool to have the dies for the stamped images! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  36. Dianne Stoudt

    I enjoyed the live demonstration tonight.
    My favorite thing in the new catalog is the Heartland stamp set.
    I’m just a country girl!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks, Dianne – it was nice of you to join us! Hope to see you again in the future. The Heartland set is wonderful – be sure to check out the Country Road set, too! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  37. Susan Stetina

    Hope you had a beautiful birthday. Congratulaions on your weight loss. I am very envious. You must have excellent willpower. The stamparatus will be great for making my Christmas cards this year.

    • stampsnlingers

      It’s a very handy tool, that’s for sure! Willpower? Maybe. I found a few tricks that helped me – for the first time! Thanks, Susan! 🙂

  38. Lisa D

    Hey Mary, amazing what one can do when you put your heart and soul into it. You journey is inspiring , thanks for sharing with us. My current favorite item is the delightly detailed laser cut papers!
    Happy Birthday!!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Lisa – it’s been a journey, for sure! 🙂 That Detailed laser paper is truly beautiful! 🙂

  39. Rebecca Bullock

    I would so love the stamparatus….and I enjoy your show so much. You are the kind of person I could call my friend.

    • stampsnlingers

      That’s sweet of you to say, Rebecca! 🙂 Thank you so much. Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  40. Dee Kepler

    I know I am not “one of your hosts” but this offer of a stamparatus is a dream made in heaven…especially knowing I am not one to win, but never hurts to try. I have come to the conclusion YOU have done more without being in your own element toward card making than I could ever imagine. It is obvious you are a pro in all you do and even though Iknow you are 100% human and do make mistakes, I love the fact you charge through and keep on going and showing us HOW to recover graciously. I was looking for a die I lost that (at this point) remains illusive, and found a tiny stamp of rain drops I had lost when doing things my way. With the stamparatus maybe I wouldn’t lose a tiny stamp! Keep crafting and card making PLEASE…enjoy your cruise and God bless..

    • stampsnlingers

      You’ve got as good a shot an anyone, Dee! Entering is half the battle! Which is what I tell myself when I buy a lottery ticket…. 😉 Thank you so much for the very kinds words – it made me feel really good, Dee! 🙂 I surely do hope that you find your die…I HATE when I lose something from a set! 🙁 Be sure to look UNDER all your other tools – the trimmer, etc. The dies get little bits of sticky on them – I’ve found them underneath a lot of things! 😉

  41. Karla Boncher

    I love the new Rooted in Nature stamp set. Always love your new ideas you share with everyone.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Karla, that’s very sweet! 🙂 I love love love that set!! 🙂

  42. Lynn C.

    I think the Accented Blooms stamp set is my favorite thing in the new catalog. Thanks for the chance to win. Also love your Finn Fan Fixes!!!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much, Lynn – glad that you enjoy them! Accented Blooms is wonderful and I love that it works with the Tailored Tag Punch! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  43. Phyllis Gore

    Awesome Blog Candy Mary, thank you for the chance! For me my favorite has to be Sweet Baby Bundle, especially with a new great niece and nephew due in the fall!! Also Happy Birthday and congrats on making your weight loss goal. I am only 3 years into the world of Stampin’Up with AmyK thanks to her I have followed you and am a devoted follower of the Finn’s Fan Club, one look into his eyes and I was hooked… Anyways the most important point I want to make is that I love to be inspired by your creativity and finally had the opportunity to let you know.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thank you very much, Phyllis – so glad that you found me thru Amy! 🙂 I just ordered the Sweet Baby bundle, I think – so am looking forward to playing with it. Congrats on the impending arrival of your niece and nephew! And – good luck in the draw! 🙂

  44. JRGH

    Happy Belated Birthday and Congrats on the weight loss. I love many things in the new catalog but one of my favs is the color re-vamp, I really love all the new colors and glad to see some of the In-colors come back. Thanks for a chance to win the Stamparatus what great a present to give to someone on your birthday month.

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks very much! And yes – the new colors are amazing! Good luck in the draw! 🙂

  45. Carol Swedlund

    Nothing like forgetting about this till the last minute. Send some of your willpower my way, will you? That’s a spectacular weight loss effort! I really love the Tropical Escape suite and it was my favorite – until today when I saw your giraffe card! Now I have to move Animal Outing and the dies to the top of my buy next list! I’m hoping you post some cruise photos, Alaska is so beautiful. Thanks for this great blog candy opportunity!

    • stampsnlingers

      The last minute is good enough, Carol! And thank you so much!!
