It's September 1st - Are you kidding me?

Did you see this happen??? Not me! The 'back to school' ads were kind of letting me know but I still thought it was weeks away!!

The only great thing about it being September 1, as a demonstrator, is that the Holiday Catalogue went live this morning. Now everyone can purchase what they need for all their holiday creations.

I've just put the new catalogue image on my home page and if you click on it, you will be taken to the online version. Want a personal copy? Contact me to make arrangements to get one in your hands.

I am very sorry that my Open House was a bust. There just wasn't enough interest. I'm thinking about scheduling it again in October to give you a chance to see all the wonderful projects I've been creating - you can take away some ideas.

Along with the release of the new catalogue is a new promotion for hosts.

The fall would be a great time to have some friend over for a stamping party. I'm happy to bring a project and all the materials. Your friends could have a look through the catalogue and place orders with you. Also, share the catalogue with your neighbours and co-workers to get as many orders as you can. In this way you can earn this free stamp set plus 10% in additional free products. Check out the video here.

The hostess code for September is ZECM4VJH.
Use this code when placing an online order under $200 and your name will be entered into a monthly draw.

Happy stamping everyone.

Seashore Stampers Bog Hop - Anything but a card

Hello fellow stampers,

Welcome again to our monthly blog hop which features a little group of Victoria Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who enjoy each others company, support, project ideas and great potluck lunches.

This month we decided to make something that is 'not a card'. I'm featuring a little box I found on You Tube that uses a 6x6 piece of Designer Series Paper. The unique feature of this little box is that it can be folded for storage so you could make a few and have them handy when you have that little gift to give to someone.

Here is the box I made.

To see how to make this card, check out Buckeye Inklings video. She does an excellent job explaining how to make this box as well as how to change the dimensions for other sizes.

I really love this little box. I particularly like the box she demonstrates for a gift card. There is room for some chocolates in it as well so for the coffee lovers in my life, I would put in a coffee gift card along with some chocolate covered coffee beans. Let me know what you think of this box by sending me a comment.

By clicking on Next Blog you will be taken to Jean's project.

Happy stamping everyone.

Bonus Days and More

Hello everyone.
I do not want you to miss out on Bonus Days! What are these? Well, Stampin' Up! introduced this promotion last year and since it was such a success they have decided to do it again. Spend in July, earn in August.

Basically, for every $60 you spend (before shipping & tax) in July, you will earn a coupon valued at $6.00 that you can spend in the month of August. If you spend $120, you will receive two coupons. Now, if you spend a minimum of $200, you will get your Stampin' Rewards worth $20 plus three coupons.

Collect your coupons and then spend them in August. And there will be a new stamp set bundle available in August - a preview to the Holiday Catalogue. The stamp set is called Carols for Christmas and is a fabulous set for building card fronts for your holiday card making.

Check out Brandi Barnard's explanation of how it works here and then return here to read the fine print.

This would also be a PERFECT time to stock up on the essentials – card stock, envelopes,  adhesive, etc. Check your supplies and make a list! 

The fine print:
  • Bonus Days promotion runs July 1–31, 2017
  • Redemption your Bonus Days coupons August 1–31, 2017
  • A valid email address is required to participate in this promotion; Bonus Days coupon codes can only be delivered via email so MAKE SURE your email address is correct.
  • SAVE THE EMAILS containing your Bonus Days coupon codes OR print out the coupons. Codes cannot be resent if the email is lost, and lost codes cannot be recovered.  (Stampin Up is not giving me your code if its lost. I will have no way of finding this code for you.  Don’t lose it!!!)
  • Bonus Days coupon codes can be redeemed for any product, excluding Starter Kits, Demonstrator Supply Items, and Paper Pumpkin subscriptions. New prepaid Paper Pumpkin codes can be discounted with Bonus Days coupons
If your order is less that $200 then send to me and I will place in a group order. Or, go ahead and order online to be entered into the monthly Host Code draw.

Happy shopping everyone.
