Good morning! Happy 4th!!

 

I have a few things for you:

 

FIRST, I have NO Live! video from yesterday.

 

Were YOU on Facebook?

It was wonky.

Like the wonky donkey. ;)

 

I tried 3 times with no luck--no one could see me while I was on--and gave up!

Cuz I have STUFF TO DO still!!!

We leave tomorrow and I'm not ready!

 

 

SECOND, I DO have news for you about some carryover 3D embossing folders!

 

These 3D embossing folders are now available to order in the new style:

Click any pic to order!

 

 

I'll let you know when the rest come available.

 

 

THIRD, I have a project to share from Sailing Home again.

 

Sailing Home, Stitched Nested Labels Dies, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

We made this at clubs this month.

 

 

For the next couple weeks, I may not be very chatty!

Shocking, I know!!!!

 

I wanna share ideas with you, but it's crunch time!

So--I'll do my best!

 

 

Reminder--you get a $5 coupon for every $50 you order this month!

(ps: the Sailing Home bundle is $50.25)

 

Shop online 24/7!

What's best for YOU??

 

Good morning Stampers!

 

I have a little bit different kind of post for you today.

 

I've been meaning to post some of this for awhile but never found the right time!

 

 

I want to share one of my favorite parts about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator...

 

OF COURSE, it's the people!!!

But you know I usually forget to take pics.

 

I have an amazing Dazzling Demos Team that gets together usually a couple times a month--our "meeting" and another time just to stamp! It's totally voluntary.

 

PLUS, I also have other Demo friends!

 

Well, we ALL can get together at Stampin' Up! Events!

 

The most recent event was OnStage Minneapolis.

And we had a good-sized travel group!

 

Dazzling Demos--including Judy who flew in all the way from Alaska!, another team from Michigan, and a team from Wisconsin.

 

OnStage Minneapolis Travel Group

 

 

 

Some of us got in town a little early, and we started out right with lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp! :D

 

Bubba Gump Shrimp with these awesome ladies!

 

 

We also included one of my Cruise Family and her upline in our Shoebox Swap Saturday night. (Sorry no people pics. I was drained by then.)

 

But first, I got to see her at a Leadership dinner the night before! (AND I GET TO SEE HER AGAIN IN A COUPLE DAYS!!!)

 

Steph & Cheryl at CenterStage

 

We had yummy food there, too!

I'm sharing all this for a couple reasons.

 

Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator isn't just about classes and product.

 

It's about people--customers who turn into friends, team members who turn into sisters, friends & family with whom we share our creations.

 

It's about making MY life and other peoples' lives better through papercrafting!

 

It certainly can be about income--or getting a discount on the products you love!

 

Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is whatever you make it.

 

 

So what's best for YOU?

 

 

Stampin' Up! has an offer to get you started from now through August 31!

 

Click to find out more about being a Dazzling Demo!

 

For July & August, you can sign up and choose an extra $30 of product in your starter kit!

 

THEN the following month, you'll receive a code for another $10 of product on your next order!

 

 

PLUS, we have another OnStage Local coming up--THIS time in LANSING!!!

 

I'd love if my whole team could go to that!!

 

I'M SO EXCITED FOR IT!!!

If YOU are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, you ALSO can sign up to attend!

 

OnStageNov2019_NA_05.07.19_Shareable1

 

 

Let me know if you have questions, or if you just KNOW you wanna be part of my team!

 

If you've thought about it at all, let's talk!

 

OR you can just sign up! CLICK HERE.

 

 

 

Have a fantastic day!!

SARAH LAING you are the winner of the 2019-2021 In Color DSP Stack!!

 

 

 

For those of you who DIDN'T read to the end last week, have I mentioned how much it helps me for you to read my blogposts and emails??

 

IT.HELPS.SO.MUCH.

So thank you for helping me out!! :D

THANK YOU!!!

 

My customers are THE BEST.

 

Even though the cutting blades sold out yesterday in 10 min (12?)--and I didn't get them for those I was ordering for--every one of you thanked me for trying.

 

I woke up to an email of the same.

You are THE BEST.

Thank you.

...for your patience, understanding, and even thankfulness.

I appreciate you!

 

 

On the other hand, yesterday was probably a pretty rough day at the Stampin' Up! office.

 

Stampin' Up! just wants to make us happy and sell great product and touch peoples' lives through paper crafting.

 

THEY have 55,000 demonstrators worldwide--PLUS all of you--to make happy.

 

(I don't have 55,000 customers btw.)

 

 

People weren't happy yesterday; and yet so much of it is out of their control.

 

 

I hope you ALREADY KNOW what an incredible company Stampin' Up! is.

 

Sara Douglass, CEO, has the same heart for Stampin' Up! that her mom does. (And not surprisingly if you know me at all--she somehow makes me cry at every event I attend or see where she speaks. Every time.)

 

Stampin' Up! has teams in place to work on solutions to these inventory problems--AND they have the other departments brainstorming as well.

 

They all are working towards what's best for us--the best products, the best customer service, the best shipping times....

 

(A couple of you who DID get through yesterday, your blades already shipped! YESTERDAY!)

 

 

So THANK YOU for your extreme patience and understanding!

 

Cuz I love Stampin' Up! And I love YOU!

 

 

 

OK NOW ON TO FUN STUFF!!!

 

I am SO EXCITED about this card!!

 

I LOVE the new color Purple Posy, but the ink has a quality issue (foaming) SU! is working on.

 

So I had to find a way to use it without the ink.

 

Guess what.

It coordinates beautifully with Blackberry Bliss (layer).

And Highland Heather (Daisy).

And Gorgeous Grape (Glitter Enamel Dot center).

(And probably Rich Razzleberry too. But I didn't use that here.)

 

TADA!!!!

 

Daisy Lane bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Purple Posy AND Blackberry Bliss AND Daisy Lane AND Gingham AND Glitter (dots)!

 

What could be better????

 

Well maybe some Stitched Dies, but that might be more than I prefer at that point.

 

(If you didn't notice, while Gingham Gala DSP is gone...all the DSP Color Collection Stacks--top of pg 168--have a gingham design side in each of the colors.)

 

 

And have I told you I love, "It's your time to shine"?

 

SO GOOD

 

So that was one of my projects for clubs this month.

 

 

Ok, well before I go, I have a giveaway!

 

If you read all the way to the end here, you deserve a prize!

 

(Do you know how much it helps me when you READ my blog or emails??? SO.MUCH. It's the easiest way to keep ALL of you informed of anything you need to know!)

 

 

So I'm giving away a stack of the new In Color 2019-2021 DSP.

(Rococo Rose is pictured; but the other colors are Purple Posy, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray & Terracotta Tile.)

 

Here's the deal:

  • By Sunday night, 6/30/19...
  • Comment here on my blog (as in, click on my blog if you're seeing this through your email, and click comment--at the bottom)...
  • Tell me what item SPEAKS to you in the new catalog! What is your favorite product or bundle or DSP or color? If you'd like to tell me your fave of ALL of those, that sounds great! But it won't help your chances in the random drawing. ;) 
  • I will draw a name and announce the winner on my blog Monday; I'll either mail it to you or put it in your bag if you already have an order here waiting for you.
  • TELL ME WHAT YOU LOVE!! Good luck!!

 

 

Have an exceptional weekend!!

(7 days until we leave on our trip!! Woohoo!!)

GONE--please read

 

Well THAT was fun!!

 

CUTTING BLADES ARE GONE.

 

A few of you who took me seriously and ordered them on your own GOT them.

 

I did not.

 

While my order was sitting there spinning, I saw a few online orders come in.

 

Good for you!!!! Nice job!!

(And thanks for the order!)

 

NEXT TIME...

 

I WON'T be trying to order for anyone; it doesn't work.

I had a plan. It didn't work.

And I'm not helping ANYONE if I can't even get through.

 

You REALLY have to order online yourself.

AT THE TIME I TELL YOU THEY WILL BE AVAILABLE.

 

Not 5 minutes later. Not 10 minutes later.

They were gone in 10 minutes.

 

Be sitting at your computer ready to go. 

 

When that will be? I don't know yet.

 

But YOU'LL know when I do!

 

 

Have a fabulous rest of your day!!

So yesterday I featured all things Noble Peacock (except the stamp set--haha) on my Facebook Live!

 

Have you SEEN those gorgeous colors????

 

I have to admit--as you'll hear on my video--that I never paid attention to WHICH colors they coordinated with!

 

They're simply gorgeous--even just in the catalog--and I just KNEW I had to have them!!!

So--I just looked it up...

 

Noble Peacock Specialty DSP & Foil Sheets are Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive & Pretty Peacock (duh!).

Keep in mind it's 40 min long this time.

So I made a couple more really simple cards using a little Basic Black, too!

CUTTING BLADES DATE/TIME: June 27, 10am (MT)

 

This is announcement #2 today!

 

So the date/time we're waiting for with Cutting Blades is Thursday, June 27, NOON Eastern Time!

 

You can click this pic/link Thursday to order:

Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades
Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades
[126995]
$6.00

 

OR Contact me NOW to be on MY list of ordering blades--and read below.

 

Don't forget, a $50 online order using host code ZM9Y2T23 earns you FREE Noble Peacock Rhinestones!

149494G

 

 

Now that we know the date, there's one more thing to consider for each option....

 

If you're ordering yourself--and you're ADDING items to your order--you can START that order NOW. Enter all the other things you want to order; apply your host code if you're using one; then just logout and wait for the day to arrive. Your shopping cart will still have everything in it--unless it's out of stock, such as a clearance rack item only available while supplies last. Log back in on Thursday.

 

If I'm ordering for you, most likely I will be gone when they arrive here. So you'll have to wait til probably Tuesday, 7/16, to get them from me. (Monday will be a big huge jet lag day, and I'm not making any promises.)

 

 

 

IF YOU DIDN'T READ YESTERDAY, READ TODAY:

  • Thursday, June, 27, NOON Eastern Time, the replacement cutting blades will be turned back on.
  • There will be a max quantity of 3 pkgs (sets of 2) you can order.
  • Stampin' Up! is trying to provide this supply in the fairest way possible.

 

You have 2 options for ordering cutting blades:

  1. The BEST option--to more likely allow you to be able to order them before the stock is depleted--is to order online YOURSELF. Yes, there will be a minimum shipping charge....maybe you have other things you need to order?
  2. I can try to order them for you. There would be no minimum shipping charge BUT--
    • This option takes more of a chance of NOT being able to get them because I have to enter EACH person's order and payment, which will take longer. If I can't close the order before the supply is depleted, I get them for no one.
    • IF YOU STILL WANT TO TRY THIS OPTION, I would be happy to do it! But I NEED TO KNOW NOW--BEFORE Thursday. I will NOT hold the order open waiting to see if anyone has a need, and I won't accept NON-online orders for them after I place it.
    • There will be a delay in receiving them, because I will be gone on my trip.

 

 

So again, if you want me to try to order for you, TELL ME NOW. AND TELL ME HOW MANY PLEASE. 3 sets thru me will be $21.

 

 

If you have any questions, please let me know! :)

 

Have an awesome day!!

Clearance Rack--FIRST TIME EVER

 

This is #1 of 2 separate announcements I'm posting right now.

 

TOMORROW, Wednesday, June 26, 12am (MT)/2am Eastern, Stampin' Up! is adding retired stamp sets to the Clearance Rack!

 

Don't forget, a $50 online order using host code ZM9Y2T23 earns you FREE Noble Peacock Rhinestones!

149494G

 

 

 

I have a list of the stamp sets here, so you can see pics and original pricing.

 

We were not told what the discounts would be--or if OTHER items will be added to the Clearance Rack--but I'll update this list of stamp sets and post again in the morning.

 

If you want to see the pics better, pull out your most recent Holiday Catalog; the sets all seem to be from there.

 

As much as possible, I have them separated by:

  • Clear-mount or Photopolymer
  • Wood-mount
  • French versions

Then within those groupings, I kinda tried to group by season.

 

 

NOTE: the links for each item below WILL NOT WORK RIGHT NOW. But they will work tomorrow.

 

 

Clearance Rack Stamp Sets, as of tomorrow, 6/26/19: 

 

 

I'll be back early in the morning with an updated list/discounted pricing.

 

Enjoy your day!!

Preparing for Stampin' Trimmer CUTTING BLADES!!

 

Hey Stampers--

 

Let's talk CUTTING BLADES!

126995G

 

As you may or may not know, the Stampin' Trimmer is no longer available, even though Stampin' Up! is still in the process of designing a NEW cutter.

 

This obviously is not ideal...but there have been quality & supply issues for awhile.

 

As always, Stampin' Up! is committed to providing a QUALITY product.

That takes time--even if they ARE working with "responsible haste."

 

In the meantime, Stampin' Up! has committed to ordering replacement cutting blades for the retired Stampin' Trimmer through September.

 

But the supply issues didn't go away.

And when they're available, they go fast.

 

They are about to be in stock again, and I'm here to share what I know so far....

 

IF YOU NEED REPLACEMENT BLADES, READ BELOW:

Sometime within the next week or 2, SU! will be letting us know they'll be turning the blades back on for ordering.

 

  • They will give us a SPECIFIC DATE & TIME the blades will be turned back on. (I'm guessing they'll give us a day or so "heads up.")
  • There will be a max quantity of 3 pkgs (sets of 2) you can order.
  • Stampin' Up! is trying to provide this supply in the fairest way possible.

You have 2 options:

  1. The BEST option--to more likely allow you to be able to order them before the stock is depleted--is to order online YOURSELF. Yes, there will be a minimum shipping charge....maybe you have other things you need to order?
  2. I can try to order them for you. There would be no minimum shipping charge BUT--
    • This option takes more of a chance of NOT being able to get them because I have to enter EACH person's order and payment, which will take longer. If I can't close the order before the supply is depleted, I get them for no one.
    • IF YOU STILL WANT TO TRY THIS OPTION, I would be happy to do it! But I NEED TO KNOW NOW--BEFORE the set date and time we are given. I will NOT hold the order open waiting to see if anyone has a need, and I won't accept any orders after the time given.
    • ONE MORE CONDITION: if the supply isn't opened up before July 5, I can't help you. We're leaving for our trip then.

 

    • So again, if you want me to try to order for you, TELL ME NOW. And tell me how many please.

 

 

If you have any questions, please let me know! :)

 

Have a good night!
