AMAZEBALLS!!!!

 

I just made an AMAZING DISCOVERY about Sale-a-Bration (SAB) that's coming up!!!

 

But I need to build up to it first....

(This may get a little long, but it's well worth the read.)

 

First, I wanted to make sure you understood SAB:

  • lasts January 5 - March 31
  • customers: with every $50 of product purchased, you earn a free SAB item
  • exclusive SAB items are found in the special SAB brochure (available thru me if you didn't receive one; or viewable online after 1/5/16)
  • hostesses: with a $250+ workshop, earn an extra $25 in Stampin' Rewards (used to be called hostess benefits)
  • new demonstrators: choose an extra $30 of product for their kit ($99 kit for $155 in product)

 

 

 

 

Second, I was gonna make sure you knew of 3 New Things About Sale-a-Bration This Year:

  1. In the SAB brochure, pages 16-19 are ONLY AVAILABLE thru February 15.
  2. February 16, another batch of limited-time products will be available.
  3. Stampin' Rewards can be applied to a starter kit for a new demonstrator. (This is ALWAYS the case since our newest annual catalog--but this is the first SAB that includes this option....All or part of the rewards can be applied to the kit; once the workshop is closed, the hostess is emailed a code to use to be able to apply the rewards to the kit, which is $99 + tax...no shipping.)

 

 

Ok...now here's my amazing discovery:

 

If you are a hostess during SAB, you can earn an EXTRA $25 of free product (with a $250 workshop) besides your normal percentage AND you can apply it to a demonstrator starter kit and get another EXTRA $30 of product.

 

You COULD earn the kit FREE!!! (valued at $155 + business supplies)

 

Can you believe that deal????

 

 

I know some of you have been considering demonstrating for awhile now.

It's the perfect time!!

 

I also know some of you don't think you'd EVER become a demonstrator!

But you don't HAVE to have parties.

You can simply just take advantage of the great deals!

 

Just think about it!

I'd love to chat with you.

And I'd love to help you succeed in whatever way I can!

 

 

Have a wonderful day--and a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

A Cut Above...

 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.

 

I'm very thankful for my family and friends and customers, and for all the many other blessings God has given me, including His Son Jesus.

 

I'm thankful for this special time of year we've had to celebrate Him.

 

 

So I wanna share another card using the fabulous exclusive hostess set Love You Sew:

 

Love You Sew hostess exclusive set, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

"You're a cut above the rest"

That's how I feel about all my customers!! *Ü*

 

If you want this stamp set, schedule a workshop with me soon!

Finally Done!!

 

Ok, I was supposed to post this yesterday, but I never finished putting it together.

Sorry!

 

I finally have all my Christmas cards in the mail!!

Yay!!

 

Yah.

I don't wanna brag but....

got them in the mail a whole 4 days before Christmas.

Yep.

I'm good like that.

 

(And if they're not in the mail, they must be hiding in the couch. :/ )

 

 

I REALIZE it's still Christmas and lots of festivities are still coming up, but I wanted to share non-Christmas again today.

 

Here's a beautiful project from the Occasions Catalog:

 

Bloomin Hearts Thinlit, Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

3 amazing new products are the focus here!

 

  1. Bloomin Heart Thinlit
  2. Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper
  3. Big Shot Die Brush Big Shot Die Brush, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

This is an amazingly detailed thinlit, so Stampin' Up! released their die brush just in time!

 

No more using toothpicks to individually remove all the cut pieces from the die.

 

Just run the brush over the cut piece on the accompanying mat and VOILA!!

 

And how gorgeous is the new Glimmer Paper?!?!

GOTTA love it!

 

 

Rather than going "Valentine's" on this card, I thought it would make a perfect wedding or anniversary card.

 

 

Hope you're all enjoying your last minute details of the season!

 

Don't forget to check out some deals for yourself!!

New Weekly Deals are here.

And the Year End Sale is still going on here until January 4.

Oh!! They added more items to the sale, too!

 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

CALLING ALL CRAFTERS!!

I want YOU!!!

 

I'm switching gears a little bit today....

WORKING on my Christmas cards but SHARING new product!!!!

 

I did something that I have not done in years!!!

 

Love You Sew (exclusive hostess set, 1/5/16 - 5/31/16),www.dazzledbystamping.comI (pre)ORDERED a HOSTESS stamp set!!

I don't normally choose those, because they are never carried forward in a future catalog; they're always exclusive and don't serve my needs.

 

However, I loved this one SO MUCH--and Stampin' Up! allowed us to ORDER it in our (On Stage Milwaukee) preorder, rather than just EARN it.

 

The set is called Love You Sew.

 

The thing is....YOU can only EARN it as a hostess during our Occasions Catalog sales period, 1/5/16 - 5/31/16. (You should be receiving your Occasions and SAB catalogs within the next couple weeks.)

So you will WANT to be a HOSTESS!

 

Even if you're in a club already, consider having a separate workshop so you can earn this set....we can have it at your house or mine--or your office if you have work friends that might be interested!

 

Ok, so here's the first card I'm sharing with you.

 

Love You Sew (exclusive hostess set, 1/5/16 - 5/31/16),www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I paired it with Cherry on Top DSP stack.

 

Oh, and I'll be sharing several with you over the next couple weeks--and probably months! :)

 

 

Let me know when you want to have a workshop!! :)

 

Don't forget to check out the Weekly Deals today.

And of course, the Year End Sale is still going on, too!

 

Have a good one!

I LOVE a good story!

 

Yes me. I love stories!!

Did you know that about me??

 

My favorites are about little kids or MY kids.

It seems I'm always telling them and love hearing them!

 

 

Well, this one starts with Christmas cards for Safyre.

Have you sent yours yet? Did you read the story?

Here's a link to that blogpost, if you didn't.

 

 

My sister Teresa texted me that they sent their card to Safyre, also saying Isabela (my 7 year old niece) made a picture of herself and Safyre in it. She labeled it "Isabela and Starfire." Then Isabela read what Teresa wrote in the card and wondered who was Safyre?

 

Haha!! Gotta love her!!

 

Teresa's great about telling me funny stories about the kids. She knows I love them, and I love HER for that!

 

 

 

Well, my project is really unrelated to my story OR Safyre--other than that I'm sure the kids would love this project. :)

 

It's a gift card holder we made at my Christmas Stamp Camp.

I found a similar one on Pinterest, and here's my version:

 

IMG_2013

 

Dontcha LOVE him?????

 

He's a bit more complicated than the penguin--or maybe I should just say a little more time-consuming.

 

An Oval Framelit was used (part way thru the Big Shot) for the snout.

Punches used were:

  • Tree Builder - antlers
  • Bow Builder - hooves
  • Decorative Label
  • Large Oval
  • 3/4" Circle
  • 1/2" Circle

 

The body is tall enough so you can adhere the gift card vertically with a little Tear & Tape or something like that.

 

Ok, well I hope all of you are doing well with all your Christmas plans.

We put our tree and stockings up, so that always makes me feel good.

 

 

Still have shopping, though. But I'm not gonna stress yet. :)

 

 

Have a great week!
