2 Key Questions

 

Good morning!! Happy Friday!! :D

 

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?

Liz: fashion

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.

 

 

Paper pumpkin header.021019

 

 

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. :)

 

OPTIONS:

  • 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.

 

 

 

I'M planning to send an extra kit to Liz!

 

sshhh!! Don't tell her!!

 

YOU HAVE UNTIL FEBRUARY 10 to subscribe and receive this kit in your mailbox!

 

 

 

Have an incredible weekend!!

As AMAZING as you!

 

First of all, YES, I DO have new classes on my Events Calendar!!

I updated it through April.

(However, I DON'T have on there yet a CRAFT THE NIGHT AWAY I'm aiming for Saturday, 2/2....Need to confirm with the Home School Building.)

 

 

And I was trying to put the classes together in a separate email through my blog subscription, AND IT WASN'T WORKING!!!

 

I'm giving up temporarily and will work on it later in the morning.

 

In the meantime, 2 things:

 

First, you can go check out my calendar here: EVENTS CALENDAR.

 

Second, I wanted to share another closeup from my Live! yesterday.

 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card!!

Incredible Like You, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

It was just a quick idea I had when I was prepping for my Live!

 

And if you didn't see the Live!, the Early Espresso cs is NOT corrugated; it's just stamped!

 

I used the Incredible Like You set + Crumb Cake, Early Espresso & Coastal Cabana cs.

 

 

I'll try to get a good list of my classes out later.

 

Have an AMAZING day!!

Butterfly Beauty!

 

Happy Friday peeps!!

 

Today I have my Live! video for you, along with the closeups from the projects I made.

 

I featured the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits--and they're absolutely gorgeous!!

 

 

 

 

 

As I mentioned in my video, I didn't realize until I opened my package that there are 2 separate butterflies thinlits that allow the shadowed look!

 

I love it!!

 

 

 

Here are my samples I made before I started:

Time to Sale-a-Brate!!!

 

Sale-a-Bration has started!!!

 

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:

 

IMG_8321

 

To earn this Level 2 SAB item, you'd need to place a $100 order.

 

 

Shop online 24/7!

 

 

 

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! 

 

Craft n Carry Tote.4.2

 

 

During SAB, you get to choose $175 of product + you receive business supplies and a Paper Pumpkin Kit!

 

I would LOVE for you to join my Dazzling Demos Team!!

You can sign up easily by clicking HERE.

(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:

  • $300 workshop/book party: earns $36 + $25 SAB bonus = $61 host rewards
    • apply them completely** toward your $129 Starter Kit, and pay $68 + tax
    • choose $175 of product + get the Craft & Carry Tote!
  • $450 workshop/book party: earns $63 + $25 SAB bonus = $88 host rewards
    • apply them completely** toward your $99 Starter Kit, and pay $11 + tax
    • choose $175 of product!
    • PLUS you still get to choose your half off item
  • $600 workshop/book party: earns $96 + $25 SAB bonus = $121 host rewards
    • 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. 

 

 

Ok, so have I gotten you thinking???

 

I'd love for you to join my team!

 

Let me know if you have more questions!

 

 

 

Have a fabulous day!!
