Thanking Healthcare Workers--reminder

 

Shortened/copied/pasted this post and pinning to the top of my blog...

 

Reminder

 

A WAY TO HELP THANK OUR HEALTHCARE WORKERS....

One of my team members works for Saint Mary's and shared this with my team; I'm sharing with YOU:

(If you follow me and are not from the Grand Rapids area, maybe you can contact YOUR hospital and see if they have have a similar program.)

My name is Alex and I am a physician assistant at Saint Mary’s emergency department. I have a request from anyone willing. I am hoping that people would be willing to write “thank you cards”. My intent is to hand these out to the staff once the days start getting harder and harder. If anyone is willing to work on these or have your kids make some homemade ones we can work on brightening their days!
 
These cards will be for everyone who works in the emergency department. This includes cleaning services, techs, radiology techs, respiratory therapist, unit secretary, registration, social work, case management, nursing, EMS, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, doctors and anyone else i might be missing.
 
This morning I reached out to a small group within Rockford. Within an hour I had 100s of requests of people willing to help. I would like to include Spectrum health and Metro hospital as we are all working together.
 
Please send all letters to the address below:
 
Alex Vogt - Emergency Department
200 Jefferson Ave SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49503
 
1) All letters received will sit for 24+ hours before being handled and sent out.
2) please tape all letters shut rather then licking 😜
3) if you are sick we appreciate your support from Afar!
Thank you very much,
Alex Vogt

Send those cards you've been collecting from classes and clubs!

Use up some of that DSP you've been hoarding!

This is an awesome time for stampers to share our love of crafting with others AND show our appreciation for our healthcare workers who are OVERworked and making sacrifices for all the rest of us! (I'm praying for them. That would be a good thing to do while we're writing them notes, too!)

Oh hey--while you're at it, if you are one who has been suddenly been thrust into schooling your children at home...First, I'm praying for you as well; you didn't have the time to prayerfully prepare for homeschooling! It's a stressful time for SO many reasons! Second, maybe you and your children can have a craft time to make a card for their school teachers, too!

Several of my customers and fellow demonstrators are teachers, and the dedication to their students is amazing!

 

Thanks for all you've sent so far!

June is PUMPED with Promotions!!

 

Hey--I'm here to answer part of that question!

 

 

#1 - It's a great time to be a hostess!!

Hostess promo.06032020

 

First of all, I JUST realized I read the promo wrong originally and told people wrong on my Live!

 

If your workshop or book party (or individual personal order NOT at a workshop) is $250, you get an ADDITIONAL $25 of free product!!! Offer ends June 30. (Party has to close by then.)

 

But there is no additional added value if you hit $300. (You don't get an additional $30 instead; you still just get the additional $25. The $30 line is for Canada. Oops!!)

 

I am open for parties--your house or mine--starting the week of the 15th.

 

Let me know when YOU'D like to be a hostess!

 


 

#2 It's an awesome time to sign up to be on my team!!!

Click for more info or to sign up!

  • Starter Kit is $99 + TAX ONLY (no shipping, saves 10%)
  • CHOOSE $125 in product (saves 20%)
  • CHOOSE A FREE BUNDLE (save up to $60.25)

 

Assuming max bundle value (and Michigan tax rate), you'd save over 50% on $185 worth of product.

 

  • This is the BEST DEAL in the catalog!!
  • There is NO requirement to offer classes.
  • You get to be part of my Dazzling Demos Team!!!

New Catalog Videos!

 

Good morning peeps!!

 

I am SO EXCITED about the new catalog!!!

I bought ALL the things!! :D


I decided to split all that I want to update you on in a couple different posts--cuz there's a LOT and I didn't get it done yesterday.

 

 

Here are a few short intro videos of new products.

 

There are promotions this month--both for hostesses and new demonstrators!!!

 

I'll be back with those shortly.

 

Have fun checking out this new stuff!!

 

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 






 

Ok, I totally wanted to separate these videos for you, because I didn't want you to jump to conclusions or think this was just another video (or 3).

 

The Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines [there's a mini one, too!] are NOT AVAILABLE YET!

 

They're shown in the catalog, but all we know about availability is it's expected to be before the end of the year.

 

Having said that, I still wanted you to see what they are like!

(OH--AND ADHESIVE SHEETS ARE AVAILABLE. I missed those so much!)

 

I can't wait for the machines! But I'll have to.

 

At least you can check them out!

 

(This one's my favorite! They're so cute!! In case you're not familiar with Sara Douglass and Shelli Gardner...they are mother/daughter. Sara is CEO of Stampin' Up! and Shelli was the former CEO and is one of the Co-founders. LOVE THEM. They have a true, soft heart for their employees, demonstrators and our customers. And one of them makes me cry at every official SU! Event at some point during one of their presentations. Every time. They used to include kleenex packets in our event bags because of this!!....It wasn't just me!! :D ) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks!!

I'll let you know when I get ANY info about availability!

 






 

 

Have a spectacular day!!!

Day of Service Closeups

 

Happy Friday!!

 

I'm here quick with my finished cards from my Service Day/Live!

 

(I even wrote in half of them last night during my Virtual Crafting Night, so they're ready to mail out to frontline workers!)

 

 

For the most part, I used the Share Sunshine Digital Download.

 

But I also had some specific needs for grad cards AND I still had a few greetings pieces laying around.

 

 

Here are my giveaway cards from my Live!:

(Oh, I just remembered I added a couple embellishments that I hadn't added on camera.)

Club Projects

 

Good morning!!

 

I finished 3 sets of my Live! projects from yesterday, but not in time for good lighting for pics.

 

I'll try to get back to them later today.

 

So here are my club projects for the last couple months.

 

I used up all my Peaceful Poppies DSP and added diecut pieces from the Painted Labels Dies and Poppy Moments Dies.

 

So I sent make-n-take packets with all the diecut pieces to my club members.  

 

Everyone just needed a greetings set and ink pad to complete their projects.

 

Each are just a little bit different.

Although for one set of projects I used Magnolia Lane DSP.

Product List

 

Both sets DSP are retiring.

But shockingly--as SU! has never done this before--both these bundles are carrying forward BUNDLED into the next catalog!

 

I'm not sure if it was because it was non-orderable for so long or what!

 

But thank you Stampin' Up!!!!

 

 

Have an amazing day!
