Thanks & Beyond

Item 164397

Express your gratitude and add something special to each of your crafting projects with the Thanks & Beyond Dies! Cut out a butterfly outline and a separate detailed piece that nests inside to create a partial pop-up feature. You can also add the sentiment to any card front or use the hexagon label for whatever you need. We love how these dies offer more options to not only three Paper Pumpkin kits but also any other crafting projects. Please note that the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine is not included and can be purchased separately.

Add-on includes:
* 4 dies

Make the most of your Paper Pumpkin kit with a Paper Pumpkin add-on! Combine this additional set of dies with the Delicate Wings, The Best There Is, and Life Is Sweet Paper Pumpkin Kit for an extension of the kit's crafting experience. Pair with our other products for even more creative options!

March 2024 Tutorial Bundle

Only a few more days to get your $50.00 order in before this tutorial bundle goes away!  Order before April 30th.


This bundle is created by a group of International Stampin' Up! Demonstrators (Crafty Collaborations).  This is my first month to participate in this group and when I took a look at the tutorials...I was blown away---this is a valuable tool created by very talented people.  There are 102 pages in this month's bundle with 50 tutorials to inspire your cardmaking.


If you place an order in my online store of $50.00 or more before taxes, discounts and shipping in the Month of April 2024 I will email the password to you so you can download the March 2024 Tutorial Bundle FREE.  The file is far to big to email; so download is necessary.  You will find the link at the top of this page.

Changes coming to Stampin' Up!

In the coming months, there are going to be a lot of changes with Stampin' Up!  Please read this weekly update each week so you know the latest from Stampin' Up!  You may want to place orders sooner than later.



There will be price increases in the new 2024-2025 Annual Catalog to the following items (per Stampin' Up release)

  • Classic Stampin’ Ink Refills
  • Stampin’ Blends
  • Select Specialty Inks
  • Embossing Pastes 
  • Stampin’ Spots 
  • Cardstock
  • Select Notecards and Envelopes
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines and Plates
  • Punches
  • Select Storage
  • Select Tools
  • Select Adhesives



If you hear rumors of changes that are set in stone; don't believe them because all of the changes have not been finalized.  I will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding the changes.   Creativeimpressionsbylauramiller@yahoo.com




If you have heard that CTMH Makers are joining Stampin' Up! the answer is YES,  the contract has been finalized.   If CTMH Makers so choose, they will have the opportunity to join Stampin' Up!  With CTMH ceasing business in May 2024. 


Will Stampin' Up! carry CTMH supplies?  NO, you will need to go through a CTMH Maker to purchase any remaining supplies from CTMH.


In the coming months, per CEO, Sara Douglass, Stampin' Up! will be adding more scrapbooking supplies to their line.  I will provide more information as it is announced by Stampin' Up!




The ONLY thing that is 100% is that you need to have an online account with Stampin' Up! prior to the changes taking place.  Should you need help with this, I would be happy to help you set up your account.


If you use more than one email; make sure you are using ONLY ONE email for your orders.  (This includes your Paper Pumpkin subscription.)  All duplicate accounts accounts will disappear when they implement the last phase of the upgraded server.  Both your Paper Pumpkin account and your Stampin' Up! account will be integrated to the same server.  This will be vital to the changes that will benefit you, the customer.


Make sure you are using StampinUp.com and not the old server using the net extension.


Each week, I will update any new announcements made by Stampin' Up!
