I have a BIG list of classes I'm getting ready, and a separate email will go out later today!
(Sorry for my learning curve, but I think you'll be happy.)
In the meantime....2 questions for you:
1. Are you a fan of succulents?
I have to admit, they were not on MY radar at all until I learned Liz liked them.
It was around when we were doing campus visits for her colleges.
(Can you believe that started almost 4 years ago???)
One of the campuses had a Biology building that had a big succulent wall!
It was under construction, so we couldn't see it, but Liz joked that she'd be there studying...
Liz: sitting in the biology building studying fashion
Other student: so what's your major?
Other: uuhhh, you know this is the biology building, right?
Liz: mm hmmm
haha! This would totally be her.
2. Have you tried out Paper Pumpkin yet?
Honestly, your answer doesn't really matter--cuz you could be a veteran, newbie or someone who dropped....but if you answered yes to the FIRST question, I think you're gonna wanna make sure you're set up for the February kit.
Here's a quick little video--an inside look--at the February kit:
I have a feeling this kit is gonna be amazing!!
It makes me think of the Petal Promenade DSP we got an inside look at last summer--and THAT stuff is GORGEOUS!
Here's that video, too, in case you need a reminder:
It may also interest you to know that the February kit will make 9 full-sized cards in 3 unique designs (3 of each design).
I know everyone loves the ALL CARD KITS the best. :)
order a prepaid subscription on any type of order, starting at $20 (1-, 3-, 6- or 12-month), for it to count toward a club, workshop, etc--and even count toward SAB totals to earn free items (Note: Shipping IS charged on the prepaid order itself.) You'll then need to redeem the code you're emailed within the Paper Pumpkin website.
subscribe to the monthly kit; you're charged $19.95 + tax, and you receive kits until you cancel. You can cancel at any time or even just stop for a month when you're going to Florida or something. CLICK HERE to set up an account and subscribe.

The very first kit includes an acrylic block--in case you don't have one--to be used with all your future kits, too.
I sometimes prefer to use my own adhesive, but there's usually mini glue dots included that work instead.
FIRST, DOES EVERYONE KNOW WHAT Sale-a-Bration IS???
I often refer to it as SAB.
Sale-a-Bration (SAB) = a sale Stampin' Up! has every year, January thru March (exact dates this year are 1/3/19 - 3/31/19)
There's a small, special brochure with exclusive products available during that time.
Those exclusive products CAN ONLY BE EARNED with your purchase.
CUSTOMERS: With every $50 you order, you get to choose 1 item, OR there are a couple "Level 2" items available with a $100 order. There is no limit to the number of free items you earn. [ie: $200 earns 4 (50) items or 2 (100) items or a combo of that.]
HOSTESSES: When you have at least a $250 workshop (or book party), you earn an additional $25 of free product besides your normal host rewards. [normal $250 workshop would earn $25; during SAB it earns $50]
NEW DEMONSTRATORS: Get to choose an extra $50 of product for their Starter Kit and this year they have the option of adding the Craft & Carry Tote!
Here is a sample of my favorite SAB item--Lasting Lily:
To earn this Level 2 SAB item, you'd need to place a $100 order.
So let's give Starter Kit details:
OPTION 1: $99 + tax (no shipping!!)
OPTION 2: $129 + tax (no shipping!!), includes the Craft & Carry Tote, too!
During SAB, you get to choose $175of product + you receive business supplies and a Paper Pumpkin Kit!
(but I'd suggest making out your $175 wish list first!)
If you happen to be a hostess during SAB, you have the added option of applying your host rewards to the purchase of a Starter Kit!
Here are a few examples of how you could use your host rewards. While I'm just giving SAB examples, the opportunity applies ALL YEAR LONG, but it is greatly expanded during SAB--greater customer spending (so larger workshop), greater hostess benefits (with at least a $250 workshop) and greater value added to the Starter Kit:
apply them completely** toward your $129 Starter Kit, and pay $8 + tax
choose $175 of product + get the Craft & Carry Tote!
PLUS you still get to choose your half off item
Oooo!! I LIKE that LAST scenario A LOT!!!
**All my examples apply the full hostess benefits to the Starter Kit, BUT you can apply any part of it you'd like. When you might NOT want to apply it all is if you REALLY like one of the hostess only stamp sets in the back of the catalogs.
