Bon Voyage


Bon Voyage!

The Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip is finally here.  And the group of earning demonstrators are heading out to sea.  I want to thank my customers, my team members, my friends and my family for being such a support system to me.  Without all of you I wouldn’t be able to do this.  I don’t consider myself to be a brave traveler.  Stampin’ Up! has allowed me the opportunity to travel places I might not have ever gone too.  Being inside the Stampin’ Up! bubble makes me feel better.  I’m anxious and excited at the same time when I travel on these trips.  Greg and I plan to relax and enjoy ourselves and spend time with others in the Stampin’ Up! family.  We will see you when we return.

While I’m away there are two specials that are happening:

In This We Make a Difference


I’m not sure about everyone else but watching what these Hurricane’s are doing right now brings me to tears at times.  Since the devastation of Harvey started Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have been coming up with ideas on how to help each other and those around us.  For many years I’ve been part of a group called Sudden Response and when a fellow demonstrator suffers a business loss due to things like fires and flooding, and other natural disasters this group tries to help them reboot their Stampin’ Up! business by offering supplies.  We are set up to help those that need it as soon as they are able to accept products – I’ve been keeping tabs on the group so that I can help fellow demonstrators directly through them.  For some demonstrators this is their family income – they really do survive on this.  Now Irma is knocking at the door and hitting much closer to home.  We have friends in family in Florida and I live here in Georgia.  Where I am we shouldn’t get much more than extra rain and wind.  We already have a family friend that’s evacuated and at my mother-in-laws house around the corner from us.  I’ve been in touch with other family members who so far are staying put.  But our house is here if they need it.

So here is a message from Stampin’ Up! –

“Along with many of you, we are watching with concern as stories unfold about the devastation left behind in Texas and Louisiana by Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey. Though no one knows how many lives have been affected, Harvey is said to be one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, and the damage caused by massive flooding will be felt for years to come.

With you, we’re also trying to stay informed on the progress of Hurricane Irma; as we write this, Irma has not yet made landfall but is currently classified as a catastrophic Category 5 storm. It will almost certainly leave as much destruction in its wake as Hurricane Harvey and will affect the lives of tens of thousands of people.

As a Stampin’ Up! family, we invite you to help us give to those who are now (or will soon be) trying to rebuild their lives. From now until the end of October, Stampin’ Up! will match donations made to the American Red Cross, dollar-for-dollar, for up to $50,000. Please click here to donate.

If you’re a Stampin’ Up! customer and would like to help, reach out to your demonstrator and see if they are holding any fundraising events you can be a part of, or click here to donate to the American Red Cross.

Together, we can do incredible things! We hope you’ll join us . . . because we truly can make a difference.”

For the rest of September and the month of October I’ll use the sales from all the cards on my card rack to help purchase new products for those demos affected and seeking help in our group.  And for any orders placed in my ONLINE Store I’ll make a donation to the link above so that Stampin’ Up! can match the amount.  SHOP NOW.

Thanks for supporting me, Stampin’ Up! and those affected by the hurricanes.


Tell Me Tuesday – Dec. 3

Now that Thanksgiving is over we can focus full time on Christmas!  What are you working on right now?  I was able to complete a My Digital Studio project for the boys (I’ll have to share it later) and a card design and get them sent to the printer on the last day of the Print sale.   I’m working on some tags and treats for my class this month and preparing for Stamp Club this week – if it works out I have a cute snowman project for them this week.  I have a couple of other projects on my table to try to get done.  And then of course there is the decorating of the house and shopping to be done.  Plus my team meeting this weekend.

Oh and late last night in the last few minutes of Cyber Monday I ordered a small sewing machine – it was kind of a quick decision to get that particular one.  But I’ve been wanting to get one for quite some time.  There seems to be a trend to sew on cards and scrapbook pages and I’ve been wanting to do that.  I think this machine will be perfect for that – at least I hope so!

Time to stop rambling – here are the updates for this week:

New Possibilities for Clearance Items

You can now add clearance item to any order – including workshop, class and club orders.  We still strongly recommend that customers order clearance items on online orders or workshop orders via a hostess code to guarantee availability.  Because clearance items are only available while supplies last, it’s possible that the item will not be available when the order is actually submitted, making it necessary for me to contact you so that you can find an alternate item or risk possibly affecting the hostess benefits.

New Color Markers

In the 2013-2014 annual catalog, we offer the Stampin’ Write Marker New Color Kit (item 130034, page 163) to help you update your Many Marvelous Marker pack. Now, we’ve sweetened the deal. For a limited time, from June 26 until October 31, you can buy any of the new colors in the pack or on their own! Go ahead, fill in the missing pieces in your collection or buy the whole lot. Individual markers available in Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Island Indigo, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Smoky Slate, Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder.

Well – I think that is enough new information for one post.  If you have a question about anything or would like to order just let me know.
