A Day Full of Videos!

 

Hey Stampers--

 

I decided to make today a DAY FULL OF VIDEOS!!

(My Facebook Live! was at 10:30am today, too!)

Most likely, I'll share that here tomorrow.

 

I've been meaning to share all the official SU! videos with you, but I don't like to share them without MY watching them first!

 

This first one is a good example....

It's the how-to on the new Cling Stamps.

At the END, Natalie is shown placing her stamps directly in the case....

  1. I'm not sure those are CLING stamps, as they're in the FULL catalog, not the Occasions or SAB.
  2. I kept hearing of other demos doing that at OnStage with their new stamps, and they were having a problem getting them back off the case!
  3. I PERSONALLY store my stamps just the way you see Natalie mount them in the beginning--right on the waxy sheet of stickers.

 

Here's the CLING STAMPS video:

 

 

 

SUITES:

 

 

 

 

 

BUNDLES:

 

 

 

 

 

 

KITS:

 

I also did a Facebook Live! on this and made a couple alternate projects.

You can find them on Facebook, YouTube, and my blog (2 weeks ago?)

 

I showed THIS kit on my Live! as well, AND I have a class scheduled with it for Monday, 3/11, 10am or 7pm!

You can check out ALL my events by clicking HERE.

 

 

 

SALE-A-BRATION ITEMS:

 





 

 

 

 

This video is actually about ALL the coordinating Butterfly items--Butterfly Gala bundle/Gingham Gala Suite, [wood] elements (SAB) and the DSP as mentioned in the title.

 

Please remember, unfortunately, the SAB Ribbon pack is SOLD OUT, and the Butterfly Duet Punch is currently UNorderable.

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!!

Facebook Live!--workshop style

 

Hey peeps!

 

Sorry this is so late.

Many of you will probably get this in the morning, but I still wanted to send it now.

 

Cuz tomorrow is Winner's Circle. ;)

 

 

Ok, here's my Facebook Live! from yesterday.

 

I decided to combine my Live! with my club I had to cancel on Tuesday cuz of weather.

 

So some of this you January club members have seen!

But I did add some new....

 

 

 

 

And here are closeups from my Live!

 

If you'd like them, you have to share my video, like it and comment that you shared it.

 

That's all usually done on facebook, but if you can find another way to do that, let me know!

 

The random drawing is Monday.

 

 

Love You to Pieces bundle, Classic Garage DSP, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

Geared Up Garage bundle, www.dazzledbystamping.com

THE Card Contest--2019

 

Hey Stampers--

 

If you've not been to my Hostess Appreciation Party, one of the highlights of the day is the Card Contest!

 

 

Any hostess that attends qualifies to create an entry for the Contest--and has to get it to me ahead of time.

 

It always has to be ALL CURRENT STAMPIN' UP! supplies.

 

Then at the HAP, I have a board with all entries displayed--for voting on [your] favorite.

 

LOTS of fun!

 

 

TODAY I'm gonna show you the board and ALL the entries.

TOMORROW I'll reveal the winner.

(Some of us have inside info--so don't ruin the surprise!) :)

 

 

The board:

The closeups:

(in order as on the board--completely random)

 

 

Creators' names are watermarked at the bottom of each pic.

Aren't they amazing???

I love seeing everyone's creativity!

 

Oh by the way, there are NO NAMES up on the board.

 

So as much as possible [and if everyone cooperates and doesn't tell ;) ], the contest is completely "blind."

 

I love it.

I reveal who made which card before I reveal the winner.

(Todd counts all the votes.)

 

 

Oh--and everyone who DID create an entry for the contest gets their names separated so they get first pick of door prizes.

 

 

Haha! Todd enjoyed the door prize drawing especially this time, too.

 

He draws/calls names randomly (while I'm demoing projects)--and I SPECIFICALLY told him he could talk over me; he had precedence (I had to look up the spelling of that word.) so we could keep the door prizes moving along quickly.

 

He was too funny!

He enjoyed it.

He's such a squirrel.

And I love him.

 

 

Ok, I'll be back tomorrow with our winner!!

(Actually, I'll probably be back later today posting my Facebook Live!)

 

 

Have a wonderful day!!

Stay safe and warm!!

THANKFUL!

 

As you may have read--or been there--I had my Hostess Appreciation Party Saturday.

 

It was so fun--and I'm very thankful...for so many things.

 

OBVIOUSLY--I'm thankful for my customers/hostesses!

 

I'm thankful for my Dazzling Demos Team. (I always invite them to my HAP, too.)

 

I'm SO THANKFUL FOR TODD.

Not only does he help/support me through the whole year; he ALSO takes the Friday off before HAP to help me cook!

 

I'm VERY thankful for the weather cooperating!!

 

Thursday was good; we had last minute shopping/errands.

 

Friday was BAD; but we were cooking/prepping inside all day!

 

Saturday was good; so thankful for ALL MY PEEPS traveling from every end of town--Saugatuck, Holland, Wayland, Greenville (& farther), Ada/Cascade, Caledonia to be here!

 

Sunday was awesome; I had to travel for a memorial for Nadine's mom.

 

Monday, Tuesday............yuck. But my party is done.

Thank you, Lord!

 

I hope all of you are staying safe out there!

I'm not going anywhere. :)

 

Ok, I have LOTS to share with you!!!

So I'm gonna break it up over a few days.

 

I'm gonna START with the PEOPLE (and the room).

TODD TOOK PICS FOR ME!!! Thank you, Mr Man!

(I'll share projects and Card Contest later.)

 

 

So, first I wanna share my longest official running club!

 

I forgot...somehow I looked up and was able to figure out dates recently:

  • My official start date with Stampin' Up! was January 9, 2002
  • My first ever workshop was February 5, 2002
  • My Saturday club started March 5, 2005; YES!! We've been meeting every other month for almost 14 years!!!

 

Mary DeWit is missing (she's now a winter Floridian); Hope Ward had to drop a couple years ago, and Heather Cook hasn't been in the group for several years, but the rest are here--and they swap cards every time, too! Like SO MANY OF YOU, they are family. We laugh and cry together. Love you, girls!

Another person I had to point out is Diane Field.

She and Elaine Brunink (who couldn't make it this year) have been with me since the beginning--17 years. They both missed my sister Teresa's first workshop for me, but they were at the next work one the following month. Their Endoscopy Department at Spectrum Butterworth became my first UNofficial club. Teresa was first hostess; then Karen Armock and I forget from there. BUT--it became dinner and stamping EVERY MONTH and whoever could be there went to the hostess's home. When too few people were still doing it, Diane, Elaine and Teresa joined an "official" club with me. I called it my Endo group for a long time. :)

Here's my Dazzling Demos Team that could make it:

If you wanna come to my HAP next year, have a workshop with me!!

  • or have a book party!!
  • or join a club!!
  • or join my Dazzling Demos Team!!
  • (book parties or workshops require a minimum $150 in sales to qualify)

 

We have so much fun!!

 

Have a safe day! Stay warm!!

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!!)

 

 

Click any of these links to order:

 

 

 

Happy stamping and ordering!

Made to Bloom All-Inclusive Card Kit!

 

Hey Stampers--

 

I'm skipping a day of swaps to give you my latest Facebook Live!

 

First of all, A NOTICE:

 

Still need to drop off your Contest Card for HAP?

Come anytime and tuck it in the bag I have inside the FRONT door.

Just text/email me when you've dropped it off.

No worries if I'm out running last minute errands.

Thanks!

 

 

Second, a QUESTION:

 

Do you LIKE that I've been adding it to my blog, too, the next day???

(Please comment.)

 

I know it's a rerun for those of you ON Facebook with me....

But I know there are some of you who just aren't on Facebook at all.

 

 

Third, I have some product availability news to tell you:

  1. The SAB Ribbon pack is sold out!!! And the item is turned off. It was EXTREMELY popular!! (SU! said probably their most popular SAB item ever!) My understanding is there's another shipment of ribbon expected in early March. It will be turned back on at that time and will be available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. I'll let you know when that happens.
  2. Another item that far outsold SU!'s expectations is the Butterfly Duet punch; it's on back order and not expected to be in until April 1!! (That date changed yesterday already.) RIGHT NOW the item is still turned on, but my guess would be that will change. If you order the Butterfly Gala bundle now, you'll still receive the stamp set right away.
  3. The Gingham Gala 6x6 DSP and Whisper White Flax Ribbon are on back order and expected around February 18. Clearly this whole suite was amazingly popular! (I ADORE all the coordination!!!)
    • These back orders could potentially affect the Butterfly (Gingham) Gala classes I have scheduled on February 19. HOWEVER, at the moment, I'm still planning to continue them as is. If you sign up , YOUR product will not make it here by the time of the class. But it should arrive shortly after--and with the possible exception of the ribbon, I have enough to cover your making the projects I have planned.

 

I realize back orders are always a bit disappointing, but when Stampin' Up! puts out such fantastic products, we simply can't resist buying it all up!!!

 

I truly appreciate your patience with the back orders, and we're still gonna be playing with it at classes and clubs. :)

 

 

Ok--ON TO THE FACEBOOK LIVE!

...featuring the Made to Bloom All-Inclusive Card Kit (It's so easy to make!!):

 

 

 

 

Here's the completed kit and contents up close:
