The Ultimate Bundle

 

We are in the middle of SALE-A-BRATION (SAB)!!!!

 

 

It's such a fun time of year, because EVERYONE can get something free!

 

I'll "count the ways" in a minute.

But first today's card is brought to you by Georgianne Everhart:

 

Lots of Lavender (SAB), created by Georgianne Everhart, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

She used the SAB set Lots of Lavender (pg 8 in the SAB catalog.)

And yes, she did fussy-cutting; there's no framelit for it. :)

 

 

 

So how can YOU get free stuff???

Let me count the ways!! ;)

 

 

THE ULTIMATE BUNDLE

DID YOU KNOW?

  • You are NEVER REQUIRED to have a class or club.
  • You can sign up purely for the great deal on this bundle.
  • You can stay an active demonstrator simply by selling/buying $300 of product per quarter.
  • As long as you stay active, you get a minimum 20% discount on products--and access to all other demonstrator opportunities (such as the demo only website, attending OnStage, product preorders, etc.)
  • Obviously, if you want more financial opportunities, those are available as your sales are higher and/or your team is bigger.

 

As my team member--whether you want to be a "Hobby Demonstrator" or you want to make a business:

  • I'll help you succeed in whatever way suits you.
  • You are invited to team meetings with me once or twice a month. (The second night is a bring your own project night.)

THE SHOPPING BAG

Shop til you drop!!

Online, at a workshop or club, or even at a class with purchase required, you earn 1 SAB item with EVERY $50 YOU ORDER!

(If you didn't receive a SAB catalog and would like one, let me know! You can also view it to the right of my blog.)

Shop online 24/7!

If you order $100, you can choose 1 of 2 premium items in the back of the SAB catalog--Celebrate You Thinlits or Happy Wishes.

 

 

HOST YOUR HEART OUT

Have your own party--in your home, online, or at club!

If you are a hostess during SAB and your workshop total is at least $250 in sales, you get to choose an additional $25 of free product (above what you already earn based on the hostess chart on pg 219 of Annual Catalog or pg 53 of Occasions Catalog.) This counts if you just place a $250 order yourself as well.

 

  • You ALSO receive SAB items with every $50 purchase of your own.

 

  • If you'd like to have an in-home party with friends, contact me now to choose a date!!

We could even have it in my home if that works better for you.

 

  • If you'd simply like to do it online, that works! I can set up a hostess code so all your guests can use it to accumulate your sales/hostess benefits and have their own orders shipped to them directly.

 Shop online 24/7!

 

 

I LOVE that there are so many options during Sale-a-Bration to earn free product!!

 

 

If you have any questions about Sale-a-Bration, let me know!

 

Have fun Sale-a-Brating!!

Happy New Year!!!

 

 

Thank you so much to all my wonderful customers and Dazzling Demos Team for your support in a wonderful year!

 

You're amazing! And I appreciate all of you!!

 

 

We are on our way to pick up Liz right now! Yay!

 

She sent me a perfect pic I asked for months ago!

She's been doing some acrylic painting since she's been down at school.

 

When we moved her back down to school in August, I was just obsessed with her collection but never thought to take a pic!

 

UVVT8282[1]

 

Aaaaahhhh!!!!! I LOVE COLOR!!!!

And clearly--so does she!

Like how awesome is that collection???

 

 

Ok, before I go, here's the card she colored with my Stampin' Blends when she was home at Thanksgiving. :)

 

Floral Statements, created by Liz Flath, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I just gave it a simple card base.

 

 

Here's all we used:

From my mailbox...to retirement

 

Hey I decided to do a quick post from my mailbox!

 

 

I didn't get ANY of my [mailbox] Christmas cards on my blog this year, and Christmas has kinda passed.

 

 

I received SUCH BEAUTIFUL CARDS!!!

Thank you for taking the time to make them--and even for those of you who didn't make them--including me on your Christmas list.

 

They make me happy!! :D

 

 

So anyway, the cards I've chosen to show you specifically have items on them (stamps, bundles, folder, etc) that will be retiring 1/2/18--OR...they're on the Clearance Rack already!

 

  • Some of the bundles are just coming UN-bundled but carrying forward through Spring, at least. [You won't be able to save 10% when you purchase them together using the bundle item #.]

 

  • All the items I'm pointing out are still available, based on my looking them up online a little bit ago.

 

  • Remember, a $50 order through tomorrow--using hostess code CG9PSYJT--qualifies you for a free pkg of Mini Stampin' Dimensionals from me.

 

  • On the other hand, a $50 order on & after 1/3/18 qualifies you for a free SAB item from the SAB catalog. [Weigh your options. ;) ]

 

 

Shop online 24/7!

 

 

Ok, here they are; I'll try to give you a heads up on retiring items:

 

 

received from Elaine Brunink, www.dazzledbystamping.comChristmas Greetings Thinlits (Clearance)

Clearance Rack *REFRESHED*

 

 

Stampin' Up! just added LOTS more items to the CLEARANCE RACK!  Click here!

 

  • items discounted up to 70% 
  • lots of framelits/thinlits and embellishments and even some [recently] retired cardstock
  • as always, Clearance Rack is "while supplies last"

 

Are you looking for something you missed before it retired?

 

Check out the CLEARANCE RACK!

 

 

 

 

Ok my card for you today is a 2 for 1 deal!

 

2 techniques--1 amazing background! :D

 

 

 

Striped Wipe + Emboss Resist (without the emboss) =

 

Night in Bethlehem bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

We had a fun, messy time playing with this technique at my clubs this month!

 

 

YOU NEED:

  • Glossy Cardstock
  • VersaMark
  • baby wipes
  • Classic ink refills
  • something sturdy--and bigger than your glossy cardstock piece--to do the "swiping". (We used Dynamic Embossing Folders.)

 

1) Stamp your [stars] on Glossy cs FIRST and LET THEM DRY! (10 minutes?) **This allows the stars to RESIST the ink you're gonna swipe across it.

2) Drape a baby wipe over the edge of your "something sturdy" (our folded edge of our embossing folder) and stand it upright so baby wipe is at the top.

3) Drip Classic Ink refill colors across that edge, making sure they to wick together. (We used 3 different colors; I did 3 or 4 drops of one color in a row, then continued with the last 2 colors in the same way. So I had 3 blocks of colors in a continuous row across the baby wipe/top edge of my folder.)

4) Lay Glossy cs on scrap paper; HOLD THE BABY WIPE SO IT'S TAUT, and swipe the inked edge across it from one end to the other. Continue until you have the coverage you desire.

• you can go back and forth to get good coverage

• MAKE SURE you keep the same colors in the same order

• wipe can last for 2 or 3 pieces of Glossy; if the color runs low, add more ink

5) LET DRY before attaching to your project. The color WILL fade.

 

 

 

Here's all the product we used:

Have a happy Monday!

The Stamparatus--in my own words

 

Hey--have YOU reserved your Stamparatus yet?

STAMPARATUS: an amazing stamp positioning tool

  • works with clear mount or photopolymer stamps
  • designed to help you stamp your image (or multiple images) exactly where you'd like [them]
  • allows you to stamp in exactly the same place every time (multiple cards)
  • helps you correct a mistake of not inking your stamp well enough the first time--because you just re-ink and stamp it again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From everything I've heard, Stampin' Up! did everything right on this tool!

Polished Stone Night in Bethlehem

 

Polished Stone is one of my very favorite techniques.

It's been around a long time, and it's so easy!

 

 

We made this at my Glossy Cardstock Technique Class a couple weeks ago:

 

Night in Bethlehem bundle, polished stone technique, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Isn't it GORGEOUS???

 

 

 

For the technique, you need glossy cardstock, 2 or 3 Classic ink refills, a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle.

 

  • Put a couple drops of each ink on a cotton ball.
  • Spritz cotton ball with the rubbing alcohol.
  • Pounce color on glossy cardstock until its covered as you desire.
  • If you don't cover your whole piece, you can add more ink drops and continue.

 

  • Every background looks different--depending on the colors you choose, how many drops of ink you use and even how BIG the drops are!
  • You can also pounce and twist your color on for a different look.

 

 

 

If you wanna try the technique out, choose a couple colors of ink that you love together and start playing!

 

I prefer deeper/richer, monochromatic colors RATHER than lighter ones and/or non-monochromatic. (Start with all blues or all greens, etc--such as Night of Navy and Marina Mist as opposed to Navy and Rich Razzleberry.)

 

 

Here's what I used on this card:

$110.00

 

 

 

 

Have a fabulous weekend!!

And stay safe and warm!

The moment you've all been waiting for....

 

Pics from the Ornament Exchange!!!

 

Hey--they're only a week late! :/

 

Sorry. I had to focus on my family last week.

My mom was in the hospital most of the week, but is home now and doing much better.

 

 

Before I share pics, just reminding you/confirming that TODAY IS FREE SHIPPING!!

FREESHIPPING_ENG

It doesn't matter the size or kind--online, my club orders today--everything is free shipping.

 

You can also get free Mini Stampin' Dimensionals from me with a $50 online order using hostess code CG9PSYJT.

 

 

 

Ok, no more delays!

We had such a fun time at our Christmas Party!

 

I'M SURE I say that every time. But it's always just SO TRUE!

(And you know this is open to everyone, right???)

 

AND..............I even remembered to take pics WITHOUT being reminded and BEFORE we even had the exchange! It's a miracle!!!!! ;)

 

 

Here they are:

Ok, I have one more thing to say.

This exchange (for ME anyway) is a definite example of "if you can fall in love with a project, you can learn to create it!"

 

 

I definitely CASE (Copy And Share Everything) my ornament for this exchange.

 

If you wanna get one of these cute ornaments next year, start pinning some ideas to your boards for next year!

 

(PLUS, I think our overwhelming response to Ruth bringing Cake Pops again this year may convince her to make it part of the annual tradition. She does good work! :D There MAY have been a stampede when she said the extras were up for grabs! Haha! We all shared nicely, though.)

 

 

Have a fabulous day--and week!
