Stampin’ Up! Cake Soiree Sneak Peek Fun Fold Birthday

I’m not even going to mention that today is one week – exactly! – before Christmas!  About this time next week, kids will be tearing down stairs and jumping on beds waking parents and anxious to see what Santa brought!

With any luck, the Post Office Santa will deliver the packages I’m sending TODAY (late much, Mary!?!) before Christmas.

And – to be clear – I mean THIS Christmas!! 😉

I hope you’re all ready and just settling back and enjoying the season at this point!  And – to help make it even merrier…head over to the Clearance Rack!  Stampin’ Up! just announced a refresh of the goodies – with savings up to 70% off!!  So – take a minute and stock up!  Merry Christmas to you! 

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, thanks so much (and many apologies for the repeat of the “the internet incident”!  I do not know what the deal is! 😦 ) – I appreciate you spending part of your last-Sunday-before-Christmas with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the re-play, here’s the link to it on YouTube (sorry that the first 10 min is gone)!

I used the coming-to-the-2018-Occaisons-Catalog bundle called Cake Soiree to make a fun-fold Birthday card.  Take a look-see:

This is a pretty easy fold to do – all the “hard” work is in a couple of cuts for the front!  All of which I show on the video! 🙂

One of the cool new goodies in the 2018 Occasions Catalog is the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.  It contains printed card stock flower and number cut outs, silver-embossed Vellum cut-outs, some pretty tassels and mini clothespins, a length of Marina Mist 3/8″ Scalloped Velvet Ribbon and some silver Washi Tape.  In a word – it’s awesome!  

I used parts of the kit for this card – the Daffodil Delight cake on the front and the Silver Embossed Vellum flowers I decorated it with.  On the inside, those gorgeous flowers are some of the larger Vellum flowers – colored with my Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry.  I cut a rose from Silver Foil with the die in the Sweet Cake Framelits and added that, too.

On the inside, I stamped the cake image from Cake Soiree in Versamark on the inside of the cake cutout and heat embossed it in Silver.  Then I colored it with my Blends!

The sentiment on the front and inner liner are from a single sentiment stamp in Cake Soiree.  They’re both heat embossed in Silver.

I decorated a Whisper White Medium Envelope with one of the beautiful card stock cut out flowers in the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit – adhering it with Liquid Glue…

…and then I embossed the envelope flap in the same Petal Pairs TIEF that I used on the card front and sponged it with Daffodil Delight and Lemon Lime Twist.

Et Voila!  I know it’s hard to see how to make this with words and pictures – so do take a minute to watch the video!  And be adding all these wonderful goodies from the Sweet Soiree Suite to your wish list for January!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix  

Finn and I’ve been working on some agility “moves”.

Well.  I’m “working”.  He’s playing!  Which is how training should be for the dog-partner, yes?

One of the things is sending him to jump onto flat surfaces and wait.

So – I send him to whatever I can find.

He goes.  Turns.  Watches me for the “click” and the cookie.

It’s all about the cookies. 🙂

Is it just me, or does it look like he’s wondering…what kind of loon for a mother did I get, anyway??

Or is that just …sheesh, Mom, hurry up with that cookie!

Stampin’ Up! Heartfelt Blooms Sneak Peak!

Happy Weekend!  Hope you’ve got big plans.

Or…no plans!  Whatever will make you happy this weekend is what I hope for you!

I want to share a most gorgeous stamp set with y’all.

Hmm.  Not much to look at, really.  Hard to know how that could turn into a beautiful card, isn’t it?

Well – this is a photorealistic stamp set made using a special process (only from Stampin’ Up! OBTW).  Stampin’ Up! made a quick little video – featuring Brandy Barnard – showing how cool this stamp set is.  Check it out!

Fun, yes?

Well, after I watched the video, I took a couple of Brandy’s ideas and ran with them to make…this.  Take a look-see:

I pulled my color scheme from the challenge at the Color Throwdown.

I started with a Crumb Cake panel and inked up the gorgeous Heartfelt Blooms stamp in Crumb Cake and stamped it several times across the panel.  Then I matted it on Pear Pizzazz.

For the art panel, I stamped the large flower image in Sweet Sugarplum in the corner of a Whisper White panel.  At the same time, I stamped it again on a second piece of Whisper White.  I also stamped it once in Pear Pizzazz on the scrap Whisper White.

With those two images, I fussy cut the large Sweet Sugarplum daisy and the adjacent Pear Pizzazz leaf and sponged the edges of each fussy cut image.  With my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend, I colored the middle of the daisy.

I matted the art panel on Pear Pizzazz and adhered it to the card front with Fast Fuse.  With my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to guide me, I stamped the Heartfelt Blossoms sentiment in Crumb Cake ink.  Then I wrapped some Linen Thread sort of casually (that’s designer-speak for “sloppily”!!), securing it on the back with scotch tape. 

I adhered the fussy cut leaf with Liquid Glue over the same leaf in the stamped image.  Then I popped the Sweet Sugarplum flower on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  With my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker, I added some little dots around the flowers – just to sort of bring them out! 🙂

I tied my new go-to bow – the gorgeous (and deliberately “casual” 🙂 ) Billie Moan bow and stuck it on just so with a Glue Dot.  And that was it for the card front!

On the inside, I stamped the flower image again in the corner of a Whisper White panel and colored the center with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Pear Pizzazz mat and into my Crumb Cake card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Sweet Sugarplum flower on the front – on this one I colored the center with my Light Daffodil Delight Blend…

…and repeated that again on the envelope flap a couple of times.

Et Voila!  Amazing how this easy-to-overlook stamp “blossoms” when you just add ink!  Heartfelt Blossoms, like Brandy said, won’t be available to buy. Nope – even better!  You’ll be able to get it for free during Sale-A-Bration!  Start making your lists, folks!  Hope you like!

TTFN

Fleas.

Friday was Fleas Day.

Fleas Day actually started at about 9:30 the night before when I discovered the little….bugs…on my kitty, Leo.

I said a bad word (okay – three or four) and rolled the Man over on his back.

Yep.  Buried there in all his skirting and pantaloons….FLEAS!

So.  Friday became Fleas Day.  You know the drill.  Pull all the dog beds outside.  Vacuum said beds.  Spray them with flea killer.  Wash.  Twice.  Spray flea killer all over the house. avoiding the dog and cats.  Vacuum.  Thankfully this was Sonya’s day, so she did the vacuuming.

And then – the Capstar.  The kill-’em-right-this-minute-cuz-we-hate-’em pill.  Got it in the cats and Finn.  Psst – don’t tell him I used a cat pill pocket for his pill, okay?

Poor baby.  I guess the fleas weren’t too happy about the Capstar and took it out on him.  He went crazy itching!

Solution?

Yep – another trip to the Puppy Tubs.  This time with a flea shampoo surcharge…

He wasn’t impressed.

But he sat bravely for the blow dryer this time.

I said bravely.  Not happily!

When we got home, he felt lots better.  Still got some itches here and there, but…I hope we’re on the downhill side of Fleas Day.

Cuz…I hate Fleas Day! And so does the Man! 😦

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate You with a Sweet Soiree Sneak Peak Birthday!

Mornin’, y’all – it’s Friday!!  And no snow in sight for us.  Whoo-Hoo!!  

I decided I was going to give Christmas cards a rest – at least for a minute! – so I made a birthday card.  And it’s not even a Christmas-y birthday card!  Instead – it’s a straight up sneak peek from the 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration flyer! These goodies will be available on 3 Jan! 🙂

I used the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack – which is a FREE item (with a $50 purchase) in the SAB flyer and the Celebrate You Thinlits (also free in SAB – but at the $100 level).  On the inside, you’ll see a sentiment from the Sweet Soiree stamp set from the Occasions catalog.  Take a look-see:

My color scheme is from this week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I started by matting a piece of Whisper White card stock on a Basic Black panel for the card front.  I wrapped a length of Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon around the panel, securing it in the back with scotch tape.

Then I took two likely cards – these are the smaller cards (3″ x 4″) – from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack (avail 3 Jan).  The top panel I colored with my Lemon Lime Twist Stampin’ Write Marker, and my Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay Light and Dark Stampin’ Blends!  

I matted both cards on Basic Black and adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the sentiment, I cut both words in Basic Black from the Celebrate You Thinlits.  Y’all – the three dies in this set are so cool!!  You’re going to love them!

I adhered the words with Liquid Glue.

I used Glue Dots to adhere a few Petal Passion Embellishments (avail 3 Jan) to the card front, as well as a little Lemon Lime Twist 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon bow.  A few Black Rhinestone Jewels (from the Holiday Catalog) finished it off!

On the inside, I used a sentiment from the Sweet Soiree stamp set (available 3 Jan) – coloring it with my Basis Black and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Markers and aligning it with my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig.  I added a couple of branches (from Sweet Soiree) in Daffodil Delight and a single Black Rhinestone.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Basic Black mat and into my Lemon Lime Twist card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Sweet Soiree branches in Daffodil Delight – and I filled in the little berries with the Light and Dark Daffodil Delight Blends (don’t forget the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig plastic sheet to protect your envelope!)…

…and it got more of the same on the envelope flap.

But – I didn’t take that picture.  Huh?!?  Well – they look exactly the same as the ones on the front!  Sorry! 😉

Et Voila!  Don’t miss out on Memories & More Card Packs – any of them! – just because you might not be a scrapbooker!  They have so many wonderful sentiment cards and decorative cards – that they can be really perfect for card making!  And these just so happen to be FREE during Sale-A-Bration!  My favorite price!  And there’s lots more to see in the Sweet Soiree suite, too – so be watching for more sneak peeks as we get closer to 3 Jan!  Hope you like!

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

  • Place a $25.00 minimum order each month
  • Place your order by the 20th of each month
  • Use the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

And what do you get in return?

  • Based on a random draw, you’ll be the “host” for one of the six months
  • In your month, you’ll be guaranteed a workshop total of $150 – meaning no less than $15 in Stampin’ Rewards for you to spend!
  • In your Host month, your order ships FREE!
  • When you place a host club order – which you’ll do each month – you’ll get DOUBLE peppermints for that order!  So – if all you did was place your $25 order for the six months, you’d end up with 12 Peppermints.  Most folks end up with all 16 (and then some) – and earn a free $40 gift!
  • At the end of the club, you’ll get to choose a free stamp set up to $20!
  • And – you get first dibs on the next Online Club!
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects – and access to all the past tutorials on my  website!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term

Sound like something you’d be interested in? Let me know quick – spots are filling up fast!

Finn Fan Fix  

So – the other day, it was chilly here in Hot-lanta.

Like…I had on a t-shirt, a long-sleeve shirt, a hoody, my Carhart bibs and an insulated hoody over all that.

Me.  The one that’s always too hot.

Which should confirm for you that it was cold.

I needed to clean the girls’ water trough – so, I dumped and rinsed it with the hose.

The Man, who is (apparently!!) completely impervious to cold, took the opportunity to have a little play…

For a while…

…getting his face totally soaked in the process…

He truly only quit because I finally had to just turn off the hose!

I was laughing so hard I almost…well.  I’d had a bottle of Diet Mt. Dew….

‘Nuff said.

Stampin’ Up! Quilted Christmas Thanks

Happy Hawmp Day, y’all!  Hope your week is going well – and that you’re getting all ready for Christmas!

Before we get going – two announcements… 

First:  don’t forget about the 2018 Occasions Catalog Shares – they’re open now and starting to fill up.  Check them out and get signed up right here!

Second:  I’ve got new Online Host Clubs kicking off on 3 Jan (this date should seem familiar!) and I’ve got some openings!  You can scroll on down for all the details and then let me know that you want in!  Sale-A-Bration is a great time to Host a workshop – and an Online Host Club gives you a completely painless way to get the benefits without any of the work!  So…check it out!

Okay – here we go. I made a thank you card today – cuz Christmas and thank-you cards go hand-in-hand!  This one is easy – especially since I’ve given you all the card cuts! – and will let you use some of those Christmas DSP scraps hanging around here and there.  In this case, I used the Quilted Christmas DSP and a little Wood Textures DSP along with sentiments from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the sketch at TGIF Challenges – although I didn’t go square!

I started out by Fast Fuse-ing a piece of the Wood Textures DSP to a Garden Green mat.  

Then I cut four strips of Quilted Christmas DSP and matted them on Garden Green, too!

Using my highly calibrated Mark-1 Eyeball, I used Liquid Glue to carefully adhere my strips to the Wood Textures panel, getting them as evenly spaced as I could.

I stamped a nice sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set in Real Red on a piece of Whsiepr White card stock and punched it out with my 2 1/4″ Circle Punch.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered that to a Garden Green scalloped mat cut with the Circles Layering Framelits and then to a Silver Foil Snowflake.

I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Liquid Glue and added a Stitched Felt Embellishment with a strip of Fast Fuse.  I added some silver hearts from the Metallic Enamel Shapes and it was done.

But – it wasn’t.  It needed….something.  So – I used a White Gel Pen to make some stitches around the Garden Green mat.

And that did it!

On the inside, I matted a piece of Whisper White card stock to another piece of Wood Textures DSP.  Then I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to add a second Thankful Thoughts sentiment in Real Red.  Over the top, I added a couple of “stitched” tree shapes from the Christmas Quilt stamp set in Garden Green and another silver heart Metallic Enamel Shape.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into my Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I repeated the Christmas Quilt shapes in Garden Green on the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope…

…and I added some more of the Quilted Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  A Christmas-y non-Christmas card!  We all need thank you cards at this time of year, and Thankful Thoughts lends itself perfectly – especially when paired with some Quilted Christmas DSP!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix  

My little (or not-so-little these days!) Man is a fun guy to have on a road trip!  

Mostly he sleeps…

But every once in a while, he comes to see what’s going on in the front of the truck.

And – when I get very very lucky, I can capture a doggie (that’s a dog-selfie…)…

And then, if I just keep at it, I get…

Possibly the cutest Finn-picture ever!!  Seriously – look at that face!! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Eastern Palace and Delightful Daisy Match Up!

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Welcome to the work week!  Bleh.

That’s how I’m starting to feel about work.  Just…bleh.

Thank goodness it’s still supporting my SU! habit or…might be time to pull the plug!

If you didn’t get to see my Facebook Live video from last night, here it is!  Enjoy!

For today, I wanted to share another Clean-and-Simple card using the wonderful Eastern Palace bundle – the one that will be available in the new catalog.  That’s the Eastern Beauty stamp set and Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  If you remember, the super cool, super-value Starter and Premium Bundles – with the FREE goodies! – will only be available thru the end of this month!  So…if you like free (and…uhm…who doesn’t?!) you might want to consider grabbing up either of those bundles right quick-like!  The info is down below.  This card uses the goodies in the Starter Bundle – but remember there’s even more free stuff in the Premium Bundle.  Just sayin’…

So – I paired it up with some of the Delightful Daisy DSP (coming 1 June) and added a touch from the new Sparkle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (also coming on 1 June!) and…take a look-see:

My layout was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week:

And my color scheme is courtesy of the Just Us Girls Color Week challenge.

I started with a piece of the Night of Navy paper from the Delightful Daisy DSP and SNAILd it to the top of a Lemon-Lime Twist mat.  This new bright color is an amazing accent color!  For the bottom portion, I ran a smaller piece of Night of Navy card stock thru the Big Shot in the new Sparkle TIEF (1 June) and adhered it with SNAIL.

Using a piece of Whisper White card stock, I cut the Eastern Medallion die cuts.  I laid them both out on the card stock at the same time – and added the largest smooth-sided circle die from the Circles Layering Framelits around both medallion dies.  So I made three cuts with just one pass in the Big Shot!

Once my cut was made, I used the little accent image from the Eastern Beauty stamp set and stamped it around the outer edge in Tempting Turquoise.  I added the sentiment, also in Tempting Turquoise, and the circle-of-dots in Lemon-Lime Twist, too.

I matted my medallion on a scalloped Lemon-Lime Twist mat, using Liquid Glue, and then popped it all over the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card front was done!

On the inside, I kept it very simple, just adding a second Eastern Beauty sentiment and more of the little accents images in Tempting Turquoise on a Whisper White panel.

I SNAILd the panel to a Lemon-Line Twist mat and into my Night of Navy card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the little Eastern Beauty flourish in all four corners on the front, in Tempting Turquoise…

…and more of the Delightful Daisy DSP on the envelope flap.  And…I may have added another couple of little flourishes, cuz I liked ’em! 🙂

Et Voila!  This Eastern Palace bundle is just wonderful – so full of possibility – so many combinations!  I just love it – and hope you like, too!  Don’t miss your chance to get the big bundles while they last!

Finn-Fan Fix…

My puppy is kind of a goofball.

I think we’ve established that.

And I don’t mind.  Goofy is fun.

But – when he starts doing things that make me feel like a dog abuser….I have to draw the line.

Poor poor puppy.  

His parents won’t even give him a soft place to lay.

No plush bed for this abused pooch.

Nope.  Gotta use a rock for a pillow. 😏

Stampin’ Up! Online Host Club Openings Available!

Mornin’, y’all!  So, Finn and I did go to the dog show yesterday.  Well – we went to the park.  Unfortunately, we went at 2 in the afternoon.  And they were already done! So…we just walked around the park for a little while and came home!  Finn had fun, though – he got to ride and sniff and….well, you know! 🙂

Once we got back, we went and did a little more work on the patio – including getting my vegetable gardens moved up.  

So – I’ve got a couple of things to tell you about today.

First off – tonight’s Facebook Live video.  I think we’ll make my Bits, Background and Butterflies card from the other day.  I hope that you’ll join me!!  Here’s a link to my FB page – I’ll go live at 7pm Eastern!  This is an hour earlier than usual so I can attend our Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Meeting at 8!

So here’s the big thing I want to share!  

I’ve got openings in my Online Host Clubs!  One will be starting up in June and the other in July.  

An Online Host Club is a great way to gather up all the Stampin’ Up! goodies that you want – and take advantage of the benefits of hosting a workshop!  Except – you don’t have to actually host anything!  I do the work – you get the benefit!!

Here’s how it works:

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
  • Using the Host code I’ll provide in an email sent out at the beginning of each month

Once 6 members have joined, a random draw will determine your host month.  For “your” month,  you’re guaranteed:

  • A $150.00 Workshop order during your host month
  • FREE shipping in 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.  It’s usually quite a bit more!  Remember – the host-exclusive stamp sets have to be purchased with Stampin’ Rewards – so this is a great opportunity to get those for yourself!

Here are some more benefits of joining my Host Clubs:

  • You earn TWO Peppermint Reward points for every $25 that you order on your Host Club Orders.  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!  Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select $40 in goodies and I’ll ship it to you for free!! 😊
  • FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term – the 2017 Holiday Mini will come out during these clubs!
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $20 at the end of the 6 months, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term

And – during your host month you can even gather up extra orders to increase your host rewards – just give your friends the host code for their orders.  It’s that easy!

Want to join – and have 5 other friends that would want to play along, too?  Well, you can start your own Exclusive Club!

So – I have two active clubs – one will start again on 1 June and one will start again on 1 July.  I’ll fill the two clubs on a first-come-first-serve basis, starting with the June Club.  

Don’t wait!  There are 12 slots and those are already filling up!  Let me know TODAY if you want one the remaining openings, okay?

Lastly – I still have a few Annual Catalog Share openings.  Don’t delay – get in before they close!

Hope I’ll see you tonight at my Facebook Live video!  Don’t forget I’ll be live an hour earlier than usual – at 7pm Eastern!!

Finn-Fan Fix…

One of the joys of summer as a kid was running thru the sprinkler and playing in the hose on a hot day.

Remember that?  I do.

Well, Finn is no different from a human kid.

Okay – no thumbs.  But everything else is exactly the same!!

He’ll pretty much do this for as long as someone will spray the hose.

He can catch some serious air, can’t he??

I still can’t believe I got that shot!!

But, if your order is over $150, please don’t use this code (you’ll miss out on your own Stampin’ Rewards if you use it) but you’ll still get the free gift – your choice of any item valued up to $10.00 in the 2015-16 Annual Catalog or the 2016 Holiday Catalog.  And – you can even select one of the Host-exclusive sets!

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!

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….

pronghorn
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?

cloudy-mountain-range
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.

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.

Stampin’ Up! January 2017 Online Host Club Openings Available!

Hello again – this is my second post for the day.  If you’re looking for my card share – check it out right here! 🙂

I wanted to let you all know that I have openings in my Online Host Club.  We’re coming to the end of the first club and it’s been wonderful! Everyone has enjoyed their new goodies and getting some great Stampin’ Rewards!

The next Club will begin in January and I’m letting y’all know so that you can get your names on the list!  Here’s how the club will work.

We’ll have 6 people in each club – yes, we can do more than one at a time, so….if you’re interested, let me know right away and I’ll get your name on the list!

Each person in the club commits to ordering at least $25 in product each month for 6 months.  When we kick off in January, I’ll put everyone’s name in a hat and draw names for who will be the host in any given month.  So, you’ll know before we even get going which is “your” month!

Each host is guaranteed at least a $150 “show” total – and you’re more than welcome to invite your friends, people you meet at the grocery store, neighbors, enemies :), to join and order with your host code to increase the show total!

At the end of the month, the host and I chat on the phone and I put her order in.

So – what are all the benefits?

  1. You get all the bennies of being a show host without any hassle!  Everyone places their order thru my Online Store and uses the month’s Host Code.  All their goodies go directly to them!
  2. While you’re a member of the Club, you’ll get DOUBLE Peppermint Points on each of your Club Orders.  Peppermints add up to free goodies! When you collect 16 – you get to select a $40 goody – free! – and I’ll even pay the shipping and taxes.
  3. At the end of the club, each member will get to select a free stamp set valued at $20 from any active catalog! 🙂
  4. For this Jan – Jun 2017 Club, the first few months will be Sale-A-Bration!  Where every $50 ordered yields a FREE goody from the Sale-A-Bration flyer!  That always pushes show totals up – so it’s a great time of year to host!
  5. Being a member of my Club automatically makes you a Punkin’ Head – meaning for one year, you’ll automatically get any new catalog (2017-2018 Annual Catalog, 2017 Holiday Catalog, 2018 Occasions Catalog, 2018 Sale-a-Bration) FREE.

I’m sure I’ve forgotten something – but you can check all the details right here!

And – if you don’t know about my Punkin Head Rewards Program – check that out right here!

Hope you’ll give it a thought and get signed up!  It’s fun! 🙂
