Thank You To Those Who STILL Follow Me!

If you have been following me for sometime, THANK YOU for hanging in there with me as a Hobbyist Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! I’ve been a SU DEMO for over 10 years. A month after my hubby and I moved from my home state of Texas to his home state of Illinois was when I was first introduced to Stampin’ Up! in June 2008. My husband’s cousin took me to a ‘card party’, which I had no idea what it was all about. Let’s just say that I was hooked from the get go! Honestly, I looked forward to each and every card club as I was able to join the card club group. It allowed me to meet new people and we always had so much fun creating cards or whatever project was on that month’s agenda. I finally signed up as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in March 28, 2011. I wanted the 20% discount on all the FABULOUS Stampin’ Up! products! Enough of the back story so fast forward to today! Ha!

I created my So Inking Sweet blog years ago, which for the most part has worked for me. Then I had issues with my web host plus I found out that my blog has been unresponsive across mobile devices the entire time. Sigh! SO I have decided to get professional help from Amy at WebsByAmy, which is now my NEW web host! My blog will be getting a new face lift as well as I’ll have a NEW Crafty Woman Theme that Amy is creating for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! I don’t have the exact date as of yet as to when that will take place so stay tune! PLUS I’ll be getting NEW graphics! I’m SUPER EXCITED y’all!

NOW let me talk about the card you see with the little birdie! I created this card for Stampin’ Up!’s OnTour that took place back in April. The stamp set was sent to SU Demo’s that signed up for the OnTour plus it’s a new stamp set in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. There were quality issues with the stamp set and as always, Stampin’ Up! takes care of their demonstrators as well as their customers! We were able to choose a replacement stamp set! Due to the quality issue, this stamp set in NOT AVAILABLE! So those of you that received a catalog from me, make a note that Etched In Nature Stamp Set on page 101 is a NON-ORDERABLE item.


Stress less this season! With the perfect paper crafting products for Halloween, Christmas, and every celebration in between, the July–December 2021 Mini Catalog has got your creativity covered.

Stampin’ Up! offers decades of industry experience, perfect product and color coordination, unique themes, and original designs. No matter the project, Stampin’ Up!’s one-of-a-kind products stand out among the rest!

Although the catalog states JULY, it launches AUG 3 TODAY! Stampin’ Up! made the decision to delay the launch due to product delays which is tied to COVID-19 issues in manufacturing and shipping delays. Stampin’ Up! is doing their VERY BEST in this area and realizes this issue makes it hard for their demonstrators to plan in advance at times. Please practice kindness and understanding during this ongoing ‘pandemic’ that we’ve ALL been affected by since the onslaught of COVID-19.


Sale-A-Bration (SAB) is one of Stampin’ Up!’s biggest promotions of the year. It’s packed with perks for demonstrators, overflowing with opportunities for customers, and filled with fun for everyone! During SAB, we can ALL EARN FREE, EXCLUSIVE PRODUCTS for every $50 USD and $100 USD we spend. PLUS you can enjoy unique, unbeatable benefits when you host a party or join the Stampin’ Up! family! During this period, you will be able to enjoy all the benefits of Sale-A-Bration!

Personally, I have to tell you that this is the VERY BEST Sale-A-Bration Brochure ever due to the amount and type of products you can earn for FREE!

Did you notice the pre-earn dates in the SAB image? That is one of the perks for demonstrators! We can pre-order SU products before our customers as well as pre-earn FREE products before SAB launches!


I’m creating this post the day before it goes LIVE. Therefore, when you are reading this my blog may not be updated with certain links or the new catalog images in the right hand panel. Remember that you can download ANY current catalog from my ONLINE STORE! They’ll be at the bottom of the home page. You can also purchase catalogs if you are not a current customers. BUT if you place a minimum of $75 in products (before tax/shipping), I can mail you a catalog(s)!

Although you cannot order the Etched in Nature Stamp Set, you can recreate this card layout using other stamp sets and dies. Perhaps I will do that myself and then share the layout measurements at that time!
