Classes on the Circle

I'm trying something new and exciting!  For those of you who are interested in a smaller venue for classes or maybe would just like to take advantage of a different type of class, I'm offering Classes on the Circle!  I live on Woodland Circle and have a great home studio – hence the name!  Here's a picture  – I have plenty of seating for 10 people (there is an additional table on the other side of this room) so space will be limited.  But that's what's going to make it even more special!


FIRST Class on the Circle: 

Thursday, March 28, from 6:30 to 9:00pm
Cost:  $25 or $15 with a $20 order during class or by shopping HERE
and using Workshop Code WEYUKS4F (you'll enter this code once you're in your shopping bag) BEFORE the class begins. 
Class must be pre-paid by Monday, March 18th to attend.

Attend the class or order your class "on the go" and complete at home.  Your card kit will contain all of the cut pieces, accessories and embellishments, as well as die cut and punched pieces. 

 Here's what we'll be making:
   Flower Fair Class Ad
I absolutely love our Simply Scrappin' kits!  Our catalogs really don't do them justice – they are fantastic to work with.  And they're not just for scrapbooking!  You'll receive an entire package of the Flower Fair Simply Scrappin' kit (pg. 31 in the Spring Catalog), as well as all of the additional card stock and accessories you'll need to make these six beautiful cards.  There are even two fun and easy techniques to learn, too!  And you'll go home with lots of your kit left over so that you can create even more beautiful projects at home.

NEW Photopolymar stamps

Stampin' Up! searched long and hard for just the right material to be able to introduce completely clear stamping. And they've found it!  We now have wood-mount, clear-mount AND photopolymer stamps! Our top-quality photopolymer has just enough give to create a perfectly stamped image every time and with the introduction of our firm-foam pads, let's just say they're meant for each other! Photopolymer stamps will also be unique, fun designs that will inspire you and provide more versatile options you may not see in our traditional wood- and clear-mount stamp options. 


What makes them so great?

  • They're entirely transparent for perfect placement every time! 
  • They are durable. The photopolymer material is designed to last. 
  • Can you say sticky? (Don't worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.
  • They're age tested. They won't yellow or cloud up over time. 
  • They use FDA, food-safe material. How far can you stretch your stamping creativity? 
  • We could go on, but we'll let you try them for yourself.

They are clearly a great choice.

  • Photopolymer stamps will be offered on a trial basis. Based on popularity, we hope to release more photopolymer stamp sets over the coming months. At this time we don't plan on offering a line of photopolymer sets as expansive as our wood-mount and clear-mount lines.
  • Available on all order types beginning March 1, 2013. 
  • Not available in wood-mount or clear-mount.  
  • All photopolymer will be packaged in cello bag w/insert, but don't forget you can store them in our clear cases.

Occasions Stamp-A-Stacks!

For complete details on "Creative Tuesdays", of which the Occasions Stamp-A-Stacks are a portion, click HERE.

The Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack at Creative Tuesdays has been a wonderful success these past 4 months.  And many of you who live too far away or whose schedules didn't allow attending took advantage of the "on the go" option.  Thank you to everyone who participated!

Because it's been such a popular class and many have expressed how much they love making BULK cards, we're continuing this program, and it's time for another round!

Come to any combination of the sessions – all sessions are open to anyone and everyone. But I'm sure you'll want to come to all 4 sessions (or participate in all 4 "on the go!" and here's why…

Join the Occasions Stamp-A-Stack Club
by committing to attend all four sessions (if you sign up to attend in person and miss one you'll recieve your packets and instructions!) and you'll be entered into FREE product giveaways during all of the sessions!  During the last club, we gave away over $40 in product each month – and if we have even more people participate this time, there'll be even more freebies!

AND Club Members have the option to pre-pay for all 4 sessions by December 13th and receive a $10 discount!
  It is not required that you do this (you can pay on a month-to-month basis at full price) – it's just a nice little perk!

Club Registration Details

— Sign up for all 4 months and get 48 cards, 48 envelopes and 4 accessories!
Pre-Pay for all 4 months by December 13th and save $10 – pay just $90!
Save an additional $40 (up to $10 per session) just for placing an order each month of the club! If you pre-pay and place orders, this makes it a $50 savings – a 50% discount!

If you want to join and pay monthly, just ask me for a Club Form.

It's an incredible value – you get SO MUCH for your money!

Month-by-Month, Standard Registration Details

— The cost is $25 per month and includes 12 cards, 12 envelopes and 1 accessory.
AND – if you place an order of $25 or more during the Stamp-A-Stack, you'll get $10 BACK from your Registration Fee!

If you join the Club "On the Go!" you will pay a one-time shipping charge and receive ALL of your kits for ALL 4 months together by the end of January.  This saves on shipping and you'll have them all to create at your leisure.

If you pay month-by-month on the go, you will receive your packets monthly and pay shipping monthly.


Samples & Sneak Peeks!

Because we're going to be featuring so much product that is BRAND NEW from the Occasions Mini Catalog, not all of the samples are ready for viewing at this time. The demonstrator pre-order for these products just began – so while the products are in transit, the design work still has to happen! But if you participated in the Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack, and if you've attended Stamp Shoppe, you know that it's always quality design work.

SPECIAL FEATURE: We've added a special feature to this Stamp-A-Stack round!! There will be SEVERAL sentiment options for each card!  You'll have the option to either use the stamp featured on the sample card or choose from several other sentiments that will fit the space on the cards.  There will be 2 or 3 generic sentiments for every card! You can make all 6 cards the same sentiment or change them up so you have different sentiments on the same style card!

DECEMBER SNEAK PEEK: We DO have the Sneak Peek ready for December! Here are the cards that you'll be making in December – come and make 6 of each of these 2 designs for a total of 12 cards. You'll also receive 12 envelopes and a full pack of In Color Polka Dot Brads!

Introducing Creative Tuesdays!

It’s hard to believe it’s August already!  I hope you’re enjoying your summer. 

The Stampin’ Up! Annual Convention was July 12th through 16th, and it was fabulous this year! We were treated with so many goodies that I had an entire suitcase filled with free stamps and other fun products!  It was my first time being recognized for my accomplishments at Convention.  I received awards for my sales, my recruiting efforts and my leadership abilities.  And the best award this year was earning a FREE trip for both my husband and me to Disney World!  I sincerely want to thank all of YOU, my wonderful customers and team members, for your loyalty and support! Thank you for such a great year!

I have some more exciting news!  In July, “The Stamp Shoppe” moved into its new AIR CONDITIONED home! We are so grateful for our new space — it’s roomy, clean, has great lighting, its own direct entrance at ground level and is a great, central location! We couldn’t have asked for more!

Now for the REALLY exciting news, and the main purpose for this post! Things have been going so well for “The Stamp Shoppe” and we love our new facility so much, that starting THIS MONTH we are adding another monthly event to the calendar!

“Creative Tuesdays” will take place the last Tuesday of every month, and we’re offering 2 different classes – a Stamp-A-Stack and an additional class that will rotate to bring you the latest and greatest projects available.


Don’t Live Locally? You can still register for ALL of these classes and receive the kits in the mail! All photos and instructions will be e-mailed to you so that you’re able to finish your projects even if you like separately https://homecareassistance.com/blog/dementia-caregivers-combatting-stress-isolation-chorus-groups in a home care system, check for the best ones here. Have Creative Tuesdays come right to you!


What Are Creative Tuesdays? Creative Tuesdays are a once a month, mid-week chance for you to relax, unwind, enjoy fellowship with other Stampers, and STAMP! Creative Tuesdays feature TWO classes every month – you pick which one you want to attend.  Click HERE  to read more about Creative Tuesdays!


Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stacks! Eliminate the stress this year and start your Christmas Cards early! You could even have them all DONE by the end of November! From August through November, a Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack will take place during Creative Tuesdays, with different cards featured each month. You’re able to come to any combination of the sessions, and all sessions are open to anyone and everyone – but I’m SURE you’re going to want to attend all four… click HERE to find out why, to learn more about our Christmas Card Stamp-A-Stack sessions and to register!

Here’s a look at what’s coming up at our August Session on August 30th (Prey-Pay by August 15th!)


Delightful Tags Envelope Class
: This is a class you WON’T want to miss!!! You’ll make a darling accordion fold book out of card stock and envelopes along with an assortment of 12 tags to go along with it! Here’s a look at all that you’ll make at this class:

This class is coming up at the August 30th session – pre-pay by August 15th! Click HERE for more details and/or to register!

Now you can “Shoppe on the Go”

The "Shoppe on the Go!" program allows those of you who are unable to attend Stamp Shoppe in person to still receive the same great projects, at great prices…. with the option to receive them for FREE – just like my local attendees!

"Shoppe on the Go!" Basic  Information

"Shoppe on the Go!" orders must be submitted by the upcoming Stamp Shoppe's RSVP deadline. For example, to receive the April Stamp Shoppe projects, your "Shoppe on the Go!' order would need to be submitted by Thursday April 7th. If you submitted an order for "Shoppe on the Go!' after April 7th, it would be applied to the May Stamp Shoppe projects.

You'll notice that the "Shoppe on the Go!" prices are a little bit higher than the Stamp Shoppe prices. If you're paying for your Shoppe, the base prices are the same, but the ordering requirements to receive the kits for free are a little higher. One of the ways I'm able to offer "The Stamp Shoppe!" for free, is to place all Shoppe orders together so that they qualify for hostess benefits – I'm then able to use the hostess benefits to purchase supplies for the following Shoppe. Because "Shoppe on the Go!' orders will be placed separately to allow for direct shipping, they are not eligible for hostess benefits so therefore the ordering requirement needs to be higher to cover costs.

Shoppe on the Go! Kits include: all of the pre-cut cardstock material including punching and die cutting, ribbon and accessories. You'll also receive an e-mailed PDF document containing photos and instructions for completing the projects. You provide your own adhesive, stamps and ink to complete the cards.

"Shoppe on the Go!" Pricing:

Card Shoppe on the Go! Kit- $15 or FREE with a $30 order!
Scrapbook Shoppe on the Go! Kit – $20 or FREE with a $45 order!

The "Shoppe-er's" Club Card!

And as if getting FREE "Shoppe on the Go!" kits wasn't enough – I have a NEW type of Club offering available for anyone wanting to get them EVERY month!

You do NOT need to get a "Shoppe-er's" Club Card in order to receive the "Shoppe on the Go!" kits – you are absolutley able to order them on a month-to-month basis.  However, for those of you who DO want to receive them each month, and get even MORE for FREE in return, this is for YOU!

 The "Shoppe-er's" Club Card is a FREE card. It costs you nothing to open one! Simply place your first order for a "Shoppe on the Go!" Kit – either purchase it or place a qualifying order to receive it FREE – and you'll have the option of starting a "Shoppe-er's" Club Card! If you decide to start a "Shoppe-er's" Club Card, you'll receive something that looks like this, with your first box marked off!

Then the following month, just be sure to get me your order for the next kit by the Thursday before the Shoppe takes place locally (you'll have a reminder and list of due dates), and you'll get your next box marked off!

You'll continue to enjoy Shoppe on the Go Kits or FREE Kits if you're placing orders! Then, once you fill the card, you'll get a FREE Shoppe Kit AND a Level 1 Hostess stamp set of your choice!

Each Shoppe-ers Club Card will need to be "designated" towards a particular Shoppe type. In other words, you may start one card for  Card Shoppe and a separate card for Scrapbook Shoppe – both types of Shoppe can't be put on one card.

Exciting New Stamping Classes

The Stamp Shoppe is an EXCITING new way of doing Stamping Classes!
NEW location!
NEW format!
NEW price!
NEW opportunity!

WHO is the Stamp Shoppe for? – Truly anyone! Whether you're an experienced stamper or have never stamped in your life, the Stamp Shoppe is for you!

WHAT is the Stamp Shoppe? A chance for you to relax, unwind, enjoy fellowship with other Stampers, browse a themed "Display of the Month" and STAMP at YOUR leisure as you move from station to station at YOUR pace! At Card Shoppe you'll make SIX cards and at Scrapbook Shoppe you'll make THREE 12"x12 scrapbook pages. Are you a somewhat speedy stamper? You'll have time to do BOTH if you choose!

WHEN is Stamp Shoppe? The Stamp Shoppe is open the second Friday and Saturday of every month. Our Grand Opening is on September 10th and 11th! The Stamp Shoppe is open from 6:30 – 9:30 pm on Friday evenings and from 10 am – 1 pm on Saturday mornings. If you're coming to just Card Shoppe OR Scrapbooking Shoppe, you can arrive at any time during the first hour of the Shoppe's opening.  If you're coming to BOTH Card Shoppe and Scrapbooking Shoppe, you'll want to arrive when Stamp Shoppe first opens so that you have enough time for both. The Stamp Shoppe will have different projects every month designed around the current holidays and season.  Friday and Saturday projects are always identical – you choose which time slot works best for you
WHERE is Stamp Shoppe?  Trinity Communion Church, 759 Winona Blvd, Rochester NY 14617 (near Titus and St. Paul Blvd.)

HOW MUCH is Stamp Shoppe? That's the BEST part!

  • The Card Shoppe is just $15 for all 6 cards or FREE with a $20 order placed during Shoppe hours!
  • The Scrapbook Shoppe is just $20 for all 3, 12"x12" Scrapbook Pages or FREE with a $25 order placed during Shoppe hours!

Want to come to both Shoppes? Any combination of prices works. Pay $35 and come to BOTH. Place a $45 order and come to both for FREE. Place a $20 order and come to Card Shoppe for FREE and Scrapbook Shoppe for $20…. However YOU want to work it…

WANT MORE FREE cards at the Stamp Shoppe? You've got it! Bring a friend who has never stamped with me before and you'll get to make an EXTRA set of cards for FREE! That means that you'll get to make TWELVE cards total – 2 of each design – 1 to keep as a sample and 1 to send! If you're only registered for Scrapbook Shoppe and bring a friend then you'll get to make a set of cards for FREE in addition to your scrapbook pages.

DO I NEED TO PRE-PAY? No! For your convenience, I've waived that requirement as well! But I DO need to know that you're coming and whether you're bringing a friend by noon on the Thursday before Stamp Shoppe (so for September 10th and 11th Stamp Shoppes, the RSVP deadline is Thursday, September 9th at Noon) in order to prepare an accurate number of cut materials. Simply call me at 585-360-4806 or e-mail me at krisshuels@gmail.com to reserve your spot at the table!
