Stampin’ Up! Online Host Club Openings, Year End Clearance and….Blog Candy!

Good morning, y’all and Happy Hawmp Day!  So here I sit in a part of Utah way out in the middle of nowhere – and it’s spectacularly beautiful!  And teeming with wildlife.  Bunnies out the wazoo and….

Pronghorns.  Not something you see on your everyday drive to lunch, huh? 🙂

The day went from a brrrr-ly 19 degrees this morning to a balmy 40 this afternoon.  Snowed again overnight but the day turned beautiful.  

Nevertheless, I was pretty glad that I didn’t have to go back over the mountain pass to get home tonight – but…how gorgeous is this?

So – a couple of things to bring to your attention today!

First – I want to remind y’all that I have another Online Host club coming up in January – just in time for the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration.  And, I have some openings left.

Online Host Club Logo
Here’s the details.  Read them thru and then let me know if you want to be a part of the Club.  Tell me right quick – the slots will fill up fast!

You sign up for a 6 month term and commit to:

  • A $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Placing your order by the 20th of each month
  • And using the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

Once 6 members have joined, I’ll do a random draw to determine your host month.   As a member of the Online Club, you’re guaranteed:

  • A $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • $15.00 minimum of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host month – and most every Host has ended up with quite a bit more than $15 to spend!
  • You earn TWO Peppermint Reward points for every $25 that you order on your Host Club Orders (versus the one that non-club members earn).  So your $25.00 order earns TWO Peppermints every month, a $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 12 reward points during your membership, building up your Peppermints towards FREE Items!  When you collect just 16 Peppermints, you earn a free $40 gift of your choice from any active catalog!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your Host Month
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $20 at the end of the 6 months, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • And, at the end of the 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term

During your host month you can gather up extra orders to increase your host rewards (just give your friends the host code for their orders).  It’s that easy!

Maybe you know 5 like-minded folks who would want to do this?  Well, let me know and y’all can start your own Exclusive Club! 🙂

So, this is a great way to earn Stampin’ Rewards Points – and DOUBLE Peppermint Rewards – and fill up your tool box with the SU! goodies you love.

And – 5 months of this Club will be during the active Occasions Catalog and 3 during Sale-A-Bration!

Like I said – let me know quick-quick so you don’t miss your chance to take part.

Okay – next item.

Unbelievably – today is my Second Anniversary.  Yep.  Two years ago today, I was signing up to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator under Amy Koenders!  One of my better decisions!

  1. Love how Stampin up products coordinate.

  2. Congratulations on your two year anniversary!! So glad that you’re part of our team. 😀 Beautiful pictures of Utah too…but I’m glad that it was you driving through the snow in the mountains and not me! 🙂

  3. Patricia Allison

    Hi Mary! Happy Anniversary! I read your blog almost everyday, and enjoy seeing your creativity with Stampin Up products. I like SU because of the fun designs, quality products, and matching colors. I also like the creative community that so willingly shares their great ideas… Loads of inspiration and techniques to try. It is a joy to follow you online, and I wish you all the best in this new year of your business!

    • Thanks so much, Patricia! I’m glad you enjoy what I’m putting out there. And thanks for sticking with me thru nearly the whole two years! 🙂

    I love stampin up products because everything coordinates beautifully with each other

  5. Mom

    It is beautiful!

  6. Kathy H

    What I love about Stampin’ Up is their product coordination. I love that it is so easy to pull together colored paper, inks, and designer series paper. Plus, now the suite systems! Totally great!

  7. Kate Stockman

    I love Stampin’Up because everything matches—cardstock, ink, markers, and even the DSP. I also like that the DSP shows you what colors to use to match.

    • Yes, I really like being able to check the DSP to help me figure the colors for my cards. It even helps me use colors together that I might not have otherwise! Thanks, Kate! 🙂

  8. juliejphoto

    Well, Mary, that is a lot of good stuff for lucky person! My friend taught me a few things about card-making and I ordered some Stampin’ Up products. Now I am hooked. Stampin’ Up card stock is wonderful, and I have purchased other to which I can compare. SU is the best! Also, their designs are great and I LOVE the bundles!

  9. JRGH

    Wow what a beautiful scene and see a prong-horn in road amazing. Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. Phyllis Gore

    I love the way all their products coordinate, which leaves me more time to create. Most importantly, I love knowing that I am getting just what I want delivered to my door 🙂 I don’t have to spend hours in a craft store for inspiration and spending $$ on things I may or may not use. Lastly, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are the BEST!!!!

    • Right? No more pondering in the craft aisle wondering what you’ve got and what you don’t and what will go with what! I love just clicking the button and knowing it’s all going to work together. Thanks, Phyllis! 🙂

  11. K. Boyer

  13. Valerie

    Mary, I enjoy your comments and adventures – and of course cards, look forward to your posts. Congratulations on 2 years, I had assumed you had many more years of being a demonstrator. Keep it up!

  14. Kay V.

    I missed seeing one of your beautiful cards today…but I am happy to enter your Blog candy giveaway..I have loved Stampin Up since 2005. As a seasoned citizen, I have a hard time seeing colors correctly.( my greens and blues are sometimes all grey, etc) .So having all the products in matching / coordinating colors is great. Thanks for all the inspiration.

    • Seasoned Citizen! I love it and will have to remember that!! I love the easy color coordination, too – it’s so handy! 🙂 Come back tomorrow for another card! Thanks, Kay.

  15. Georgia

    Hard to believe it is almost the end of another year! Thanks for the great giveaway.

  16. Ellie Peckler

    Congratulations, Mary; how exciting! My favorite products are my paper trimmer, scoring board, paper snips and piercing tool. They make creating cards easy and fun! – Ellie

  17. Cheryl McAskill

    Congrats on your 2 year mark! I too am a Stampin’Up! lover! I have tried and still do try other products…I keep coming back to Stampin’Up! The product just can’t be beat! I believe and also have heard from many others, Stampin’Up! Card Stock cannot be beat for quality. If I even use a different product…ie…embellishments…I always start with Stampin’Up! Card Stock…to me it assures that firm foundation thing!

  18. Vicky Blackwell

    I LOVE Stampin Up products because everything coordinates and the bundles are amazing!!!

  19. Bette S

    The main reason I love Stampin Up is EVERYTHING is co-coordinated! That makes it super easy to come up with a great card. No more searching various stores for items that may – or may not – work together. Another thing I like is that I can order on-line and the products come directly to my house. Stampin Up has such neat stamps, embossing folders, dies – you name it! I love Stampin UP!!!

  31. Paula Poindexter

    Hi Mary, Sure do enjoy your blog. Hearing about Finn keeps it real. So happy you found each other.
    Stampin up products are the best by far. Mostly love the paper but everything they sell works well for me. Hard to just pick a few things from all the choices.

    • Thanks, Paula! It is indeed difficult to pick just one thing to love. The paper is wonderful – I love the heft of the DSP. That really sets us apart, I think! 🙂
