Butterfly Gala DEADLINE--today!!

 

Morning Stampers!!

 

My post today serves 2 PURPOSES....

 

 

First, today is the deadline to sign up for my Butterfly Gala Classes!

  • They are on Tuesday, 2/19, either at 10am (RSVP here) or 7pm (RSVP here.)
  • We'll make 5 different cards with envelopes using the Butterfly Gala bundle.
  • You'll receive the 6"x6" Gingham Gala DSP pack, Whisper White Flax Ribbon and Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins, too!
    • You'll use these items to make your cards and will have plenty left to take home.
    • SOME of the product is back ordered; but I have plenty to be able to make your projects for now.
  • Class fee is $35, and payment is required upfront.

 

I hope you can make it!!

RSVP today!!

 

 

 

Second, I decided to show you the sweet & simple Butterfly Gala cards we made at my Hostess Appreciation Party.

Each row of tables made a different design.

 

I'm not typically a yellow person, but something about the Daffodil Delight/Balmy Blue design just catches my eye this time.

 

I like the 3 hearts cascading at the top. :)

 

(You know they were colored with Stampin' Blends, right?)

 

 

Color and design coordination makes me so happy!!!

 

 

Quick reminder--Facebook Live! tomorrow morning 10:30am!

 

 

Have a fantastic day!!

2 Items Approaching NON-orderable Status

 

If you would like to get the Butterfly Duet Punch (item 148523) sooner than later, you need to order by 10am (MT) tomorrow (Friday, 1/25.) After that, it will no longer be orderable until supplies have been completely refilled.

 

From Stampin' Up!:

Sales for the following product have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. Due to Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.

Butterfly Duet Punch (item 148523)

This product will remain available until Friday, January 25 at 10:00 AM (MT); it will then be placed in not-orderable status. 

 

Sales for the following item have exceeded our forecast. Although not currently on backorder, we expect to deplete our inventory of this product within the next two weeks; it will no longer be orderable as soon as inventory is depleted.

Cake Builder Punch (item 148525)

Due to Chinese New Year and port congestion delays, estimated arrival is mid-March.

 

Once either item is NON-orderable, when you enter item number, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when they are back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.

 

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Important note: Both of these amazing punches will carry over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog. (Steph note: YAY!!)

Happy stamping and ordering!

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!!

Clearance Rack Updated

CLICK HERE TO ORDER ONLINE!

 

Remember to use my hostess code AC26PBKC to get a freebie with a $50 order as well!

 

 

 

Besides reminding you of the Clearance Rack, I wanted to show you a couple items from my Christmas Stamp Camp a couple months ago.

 

I should have shown this first one awhile ago, but I don't think I did!

 

I combined a couple ideas I've seen over the past few years:

 

Candle collage

 

  1. On the cruise we saw an amazing display with a candle embellished with our Tranquil Textures Sprinkles.
  2. I have ALWAYS LOVED the table displays of wine glasses upside down with Christmas bulb ornaments inside. Can you believe I found the candle, wine glass and bulbs at Dollar Tree??? (This is one full package of bulbs.) And yes, Dollar Tree is a TRUE DOLLAR store!

 

 

 

This next project features the Takeout Treats bundle--which is retiring January 2:

 

IMG_7774

I prefer simple, like this.

 

But what MADE ME NEED this Takeout Treat bundle was Jacque Williams' display at our Fair Share on the Alaskan Cruise!

IMG_6984

THIS guy.

I made ONE of these.

I HAD to!

But then I was done with that much work. Ha!

 

Ya know, I LOVE STAMPING!!!!

If I've never told you, it is the ONE CRAFT I DO.

I never had a craft until I found stamping.

But part of the reason I LIKE stamping so much is the INSTANT GRATIFICATION of it!!!

 

I can make an adorable card pretty quickly!

And that's my love!

But occasionally I need to throw in something like Takeout Frank. ;)

 

 

Shop online 24/7!

 

 

Don't forget about my Facebook Live! tomorrow morning, 10am!

Click here for my Facebook Business Page.

 

 

 

Have an exceptional day!!

 

(Now back to finishing my Christmas cards! Did you see my tip on Facebook? My Aqua Painter is getting a good workout "licking" my envelopes for me! )

The Hostess Opportunity!

 

I have a few things to share with you--several Christmas swaps below...

 

AND some info!

 

 

I started with this yesterday:

Are you aware...(cuz I tend to forget to share this) when you are hostess, you can choose to use your host rewards toward buying a Starter Kit to be on my Dazzling Demos team??? During SAB that's an even MORE exciting opportunity!! 

 

FIRST, DOES EVERYONE KNOW WHAT SAB IS???

  • It's short for Sale-a-Bration.
  • 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 larger 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!

 

 

1) So let's START again with: the Starter Kit is $99 + tax (no shipping!!)

  • During SAB (1/3/19 - 3/31/19) you also have the option of spending $129 instead and getting the Craft & Carry Tote, too! (If you do it now, it's $50 and comes out of your kit product choices.)

Craft n Carry Tote.4.2

 

 

2) You get to choose $125 of product regularly + you receive business supplies and a Paper Pumpkin Kit!

  • During SAB you get to choose $175 of product instead! (still $99 or $129 kit and no shipping)
  • Yay!! Join my Dazzling Demos Team!!!

 

 

3) 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!

And it's even easier if you're a hostess!

 

Contact me for more info!

 

 

Ok, here are some Christmas swaps I haven't shared with you yet:

2018 Annual Ornament Exchange

 

Once again we had a great time at my Annual Ornament Exchange!!

 

Fun with friends, yummy food and beautiful ornaments!

 

 

I DID have it in my mind already, but Linda made sure I didn't forget to take pics of the ornaments this time!! (and then have to have people email them to me!)

 

However, I never took any PEOPLE pics!! :/

What is WRONG with me???

 

Because I'm so horrible at this, last night I had the thought and told Todd I had a new job for him at my Hostess Appreciation Party this year...HE'S in charge of taking pics!!

 

So keep in mind if you want a group pic with your club or something, grab him! He doesn't necessarily know who's all in the same club.

 

 

 

Ok, so here are all the ornaments.

And I'm so sorry for the horrible lighting!!!

They were all beautiful!

Hopefully YOU can celebrate with us next year!

We missed a couple of you who are normally with us!

 

 

Thank you to Marcia, Diane B, Laura C, Cindy B, Nadine, & Linda for coming!

Thank-you-turquoise-orange-website

 

That means:

  1. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! Take the day off!! Do whatever you have to do to be there!!
  2. If you were a hostess (in person OR online) or a club member this year, you will be invited. I also invite my Dazzling Demo Team Members.
  3. I'll send out invitations within the next month.
  4. If you didn't hostess yet, you still have a couple weeks left to get that book party in and be invited!
  5. START WORKING ON YOUR CONTEST CARDS!!
    • For those of you new to me....I have an optional Card Contest every year: design a card, keep it a secret, get it to me by Thursday, 1/24/19.
    • REQUIREMENTS: your design MUST include ALL CURRENT SU! product only; "current" means IN a catalog that is "live" as of 1/3/19.
    • PLEASE, please, please check the catalogs (2018-19 Annual, 2019 Occasions & 2019 SAB--both coming out soon) BEFORE using on your project. I had to return a couple peoples's cards last year, because they didn't qualify. That makes me sad, but I'm trying to be fair.
  6. I CAN'T WAIT to spoil you and show you my appreciation!

 

 

Thanks for stamping with me!!
