Freebies End Soon

Stampin'Up! announced this morning that during these final 10 days of Sale-a-Bration they would add some additional choices to your Sale-a-Bration freebies! 

Now in addition to the Sale-a-Bration brochure (card tin-sold out) and the Sale-a-Bration 2nd round brochure (glimmer paper- sold out) you now can choose any one of these items for FREE when you place a $50 qualifying order.  (Note while these items are in the catalog, the freebie item numbers are different.  Be sure to use the right number, or you'll be charged the cost of the item!  Don't ask me how I know....  lol)

Get these FREE items while you can because it all ends on March 31, 2017 or while supplies last!  

Did you know that hostesses earn more benefits during Sale-a-Bration? When you have a party at any time of the year you earn 10% of the total of the party in FREE merchandise but during Sale a Bration when your party reaches $250 you get an extra $25 to spend for FREE!  You do not need to have a party to get these benefits.  You can place the order on your own or ask your friends if they want to go in together to place a big order.

And of course you can pick any 2 stamp sets from either the main or occasions catalogs for FREE to add to your starter kit when you join the Stampin' Up! family. The kit costs $99 and lets you pick your choice of $125 in merchandise (PLUS the 2 free stamp sets during Sale-a-Bration) and the shipping is FREE too!  The minimum sales requirements to stay active as a demonstrator are $300/quarter, however there is no obligation to stay active to get the $99 kit & the freebies.

**On a personal note, as many of you know, I've not only had pneumonia in my lower left lung, but also whooping cough.  It's been a rough couple of months, but I'm finally starting to feel normal again.  I can even have a conversation without coughing!  WooHoo!  It's the little things that matter.  :)  I'm hoping that my follow up chest xray in April shows that I'm healthy again.

It's the Year of the Rooster!

I'm back from Florida just in time to wish you a Happy Lunar New Year!  I'm finishing up sending out the rebates from when I was away, but I should have all of them in the mail by the end of the day.

I arrived home to find some really pretty birthday cards!  Thank you so much!  I'll take some photos of those to share next week.

Happy Stampin!

New Year & New Catalog!

Happy New Year!  I hope you have big things planned for 2017.  To start off this new year, I’m excited to be heading to Florida to spend time with my family (goodbye snow flurries & hello sunshine!)  Also exciting this month is the beginning of the Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration, which start on January 4th. 
What is Sale-a-Bration?  It’s freebie time!  With every $50 purchase, you get to pick a free item from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  See that image above?  The stamps to make those cards are one of the items you can pick for free!  And if you see lots of things you want, you can also earn $25 more hostess rewards when your order totals $250 or more.  Maybe it’s a good time to get your friends together to submit one order and share the benefits!  Of course, I’ll still be rebating your shipping cost on orders placed with me when your products total over $50, so that’s just an extra bonus.  (Shipping rebates will be a little delayed while I’m out of town.  I’ll be sending those out on January 27th if you ordered earlier in the month.) 
So again, Happy New Year & Happy Crafting!

Birthday Bright Project Kit

Would you believe that I just mailed my last Christmas card today? That's a new record for sending things late! lol I used to try to have my cards ready to mail by Thanksgiving. Evidently, that plan wasn't in the works for 2016. Anyway, I haven't had a chance to really play with items from the new catalog, but I thought I'd show you this video about a new kit. Remember that the new Occasions catalog begins on January 4th. Sale-a-Bration begins in January too. (That's when you earn a free item for every $50 spent! woo hoo) If you are one of my customers, you should be receiving your catalogs within the next week. If you don't have them by January 1st, please let me know.

Non-Holiday Items on Sale too!

I just noticed this, but there are some really good items on sale this month that are not holiday themed. These items are still in the main annual catalog and will be at least through May. The dies listed below, in particular, are an amazing deal. If I didn't already own them, I'd be buying them now.
