What Would Connie Do? Ask your questions at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

It’s been awhile since I answered some questions so today is the day!  Let’s see what you guys have been asking about…

Edna asked, “If I join the Stampin’ Up team, it states I can select my own products.  Is this $99.00 of products, or do I have to purchase instructional material as well?”

Great question!  Absolutely you can select your own products.  Any of our current catalog products (host sets are excluded) can be part of your Starter Kit.  Did you know that you get to choose $125 in free product though?  That’s such a great deal!  Free shipping on this order too.  Stampin’ Up includes all the other goodies you would need at no charge – catalogs, order forms, etc.  Need more?  How about a free Paper Pumpkin too.  Wahoo!

On a side note… can I suggest that you hold off until January 5th to join?  Christmas is such a busy time anyway and if you join between January 5th – March 31st, which is our Sale-a-Bration event, you actually get $155 in free product for $99.  Sale-a-Bration is a great time to join.  In fact, I joined 13 years ago during Sale-a-Bration myself. I will post more info on that as we get closer to January 5th.


Sharon had a great question regarding being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator as well.  She asked, I only want to purchase Stampin’ Up products for myself.  Can I still join your team?”

Oh my YES YES YES!  A good chunk of my team joined just to enjoy the discounts and perks of being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator.  They aren’t interested in running it as a business.  I would LOVE to have you on my team!


I have had a lot of emails regarding the Occasions Spring/Summer catalog and the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I’m so tickled that you guys are excited… and you should be.  They are AMAZING!!!  Good news!  I just heard from one of my customers who received hers so they are now showing up in mailboxes across the USA.  If you placed an order with me between July and November, I have ordered catalogs to be shipped to you.

I should preface that with this… if you have never received a thank you card for your order from me, that means you must have checked the box asking not to be contacted.  I’m cool with  that.  I respect your privacy.  Unfortunately that means that I can’t “contact you” with a catalog either.  Your name and all your information is 100% hidden from me.

I only use your email address to let you know about updates with your order.  I don’t sell the email address, I don’t send you the Joke of the Day, I don’t send you my political opinions.  I only use your information to send you a thank you card, emailing the “Let’s Get Creative” videos & tutorials when you use the Host Code, and sending you the latest catalogs.  That’s it.  You have my word on that.

So, if you have never received a thank you card, that is a sure sign that you need to make a quick change to your account.

Click on My Demonstrator and check YES on the box that says Allow my demonstrator to contact me.

Save changes and that’s it!  You’re done!



A YouTube follower asked, “When are you going to do another Now or Wow video?”

You know, it’s funny.  I make videos as the ideas come to me.  I don’t necessarily set out to do certain types of videos.  I love the Now or Wow projects so I will see if I can incorporate those back into my videos in the coming year.


Carol, a Pinterest follower, asked, “I think you had provided a chart where you could know the number of sizes you could cut out of a particular piece of paper.  I cannot find.  If you can help, I would appreciate it.”

Oh how I love that chart!  I use it all the time.  If you ever want to find any of my project, including the Ultimate Cutting Guide, look on the left side bar.  At the bottom you will see “Categories”.  There is a category for Ultimate Cutting Guide.  All my different cutting guides are there.  Just find the ones for your country.


Well guys, I think that is all I have for today.  If you have questions, please ask!  I’m happy to help!  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
