Shop my retired products and get the same $ amount in new products FREE!

I have a LOT of retired Stampin’ Up! items that need new homes. I mean, boxes and boxes and boxes full. I can’t even walk through the room they’re stored in! I really have to let this stuff go. Sooooo, I’m having a BOGO sale:

Whatever you spend on retired items, I will give you that much in new items! You only pay tax and shipping on the new stuff. Yes, you get twice the product! 

Example: Say you buy $100 in retired product from me. Then you get $100 toward an order of new product. So you can get $100 in new product and pay just $17.70 for tax and shipping OR you can subtract $100 from a larger order of new product.

PLUS you get a Gum Ball for every $50 you spend. (See how Gum Ball Rewards work here.)

This is a wonderful way to stock up, not only on retired products you may have missed, but also on current products in the Annual and  Holiday catalogs. Be sure to have your current product wish list ready before you come, to make the order process easier.

Open House

 

On January 3, I hosted an Open House to showcase the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration items. About 20 people came and we had a blast. Everyone received a packet of catalogs along with a list of the new bundles, a Gum Balls reward form, a class schedule, a note about the BOGO sale coming up on January 24, and some other goodies.

Attendees could make a free card (see below,) sign up for classes and Stamp Club, see and touch the new products, have a snack, place an order, and laugh and have a good time. There was a prize drawing every hour for new products.

My team member, Judy Newsome, at far left, ran the Make & Take. Here she is with Geleta and Cindy.

My team member, Linda Krueger, on the left, helped me plan and set up the open house, and she helped customers at the event. Here she is with Rochelle, who is proudly showing off her Make & Take card – the first card she had ever made! 2016-01-03 13.00.41 There were displays of many of the new products with samples of cards and other projects made with them. Here are a few of them.

A fellow demonstrator, Robbye Hamilton, came by to offer her support, and it just happened to be her birthday. I didn’t know that ahead of time, so we had to make do. Here she is with a chocolate petit four “birthday cake” as Brian looks on.

2016-01-03 14.00.27

Here is the Make & Take card from that day:

open house m&t aWe started with a Whisper White card base. We stamped the flower from the new Birthday Blooms stamp set in Blushing Bride directly onto the card base.

Birthday Blooms stamp set

Then we glued on a strip of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.

Birthday Bouquet DSP b Birthday Bouquet DSP rolls

We stamped the sentiment in Rose Red onto Whisper White CS, then punched it out with the Large Oval Punch. We punched a piece of Blushing Bride card stock with the Scallop Oval Punch and glued the sentiment onto it. Then we attached it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The last touch was to place three Mint Macaron dots from the It’s My Party Enamel Dots. They are self-adhesive, and they really add a little somethin’ somethin’ to your projects. Here’s what we used. Click on the images to get your own!

Happy New Year! The Journey Begins…

 

vw journey begins card b

While this card is meant for newlyweds, I think it’s appropriate for today. After all, we are beginning the journey through 2016.

I think the Beautiful Ride stamp set will be one of the most popular sets of the new Occasions catalog, because everyone I’ve talked to so far says it’s one of their favorites. The car alone is worth getting the set, but the accompanying images make it a must have.

Beautiful Ride stamp set

The Going Places suite of products, on pages 38-39 of the new Occasions catalog, is a perfect accompaniment for this stamp set. Here I used a piece of the Designer Series Paper Stack as the background. I added a very thin Basic Black layer behind the DSP, and adhered it to a Real Red card base.

I stamped the car in black on Real Red card stock. I cut out the car, and cut out the windows with my Paper Snips, then backed them with a piece of Window Sheet. I filled in some details (tires, wheels, bumpers, door handle, mirror stem) with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and a White Stampin’ Chalk Marker.

I stamped the luggage in black on Crumb Cake CS, cut it out with my Paper Snips, then filled in some details with Stampin’ Write markers in Smoky Slate (corners,) Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake.

I stamped the cans in black on the strip of Very Vanilla CS, and colored them with a White Stampin’ Chalk Marker and Stampin’ Write Markers in Real Red, Crushed Curry, and Old Olive. I stamped the sentiment in black on the Very Vanilla strip. I matted the strip with Basic Black CS and glued it to the card front.

And finally, I adhered the car and luggage with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Birthday Blooms Sneak Peek

big flower card b wm The 2016 Occasions catalog is chock full of lovely new stamp sets. Birthday Blooms is one of them. Here I’ve used it with the Have A Cuppa Designer Series Paper Stack to create a note card with vertical lines, horizontal lines, and a floral center.

The card base is Whisper White Thick card stock. The first layer is a piece of Have A Cuppa DSP. Then three pieces of Calypso Coral seam Binding Ribbon notched at the ends with Craft Scissors, and the front layer of Shimmery White card stock with the stamped image.

I stamped the image in Basic Black Archival Ink, then used an Aqua painter to watercolor the image  in Calypso Coral, Old Olive, and Crushed Curry.

I’ve made this as a blank note card. I thought about putting a sentiment on the front of the card, but I like the symmetry of the design as it is. You can stamp any sentiment inside, or add a handwritten note.

Paper Pumpkin Party!

Sunday, January 3, 2016, 5-7 PM

1621 Executive Park Lane NE, Atlanta, GA 30329

RSVP: [email protected], subject line “PPP”

Please respond by January 1 so I’ll know how many people to set up for.

After the Open House on the 3rd, we’ll take a break, then have our monthly Paper Pumpkin party, where we’ll assemble our kits together.

You can see a completed kit, as well as some alternative projects using the kit.

Bring your December Paper Pumpkin kit, scissors, adhesive, and the acrylic block that came in your first kit. (I have adhesive you can buy if you need it.)

Light refreshments provided.

Pumpkin what?

Are you wondering just what the heck Paper Pumpkin is? Well, it’s a little box of crafting goodness that comes to you in the mail each month. Each kit includes everything you need to complete that month’s project, except scissors and adhesive – often they even include adhesive! In your first kit, you get a clear acrylic block to use with all future kits. Everything is cut and measured for you so all you have to do is stamp and assemble it.

The stamp sets that come with the kits are exclusive to Paper Pumpkin. You’ll never see them again. And did I mention that subscribers, and only subscribers, may purchase past kits and kit refills? There are so many perks to subscribing!

If you’re not yet a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, and would like to see what all the fuss is about, come to the party and you can play with mine for just $5! Subscribe at the party and get a free gift, and your party fee refunded for that night!

RETIRED BOGO SALE

Sunday, January 24, 2016, 1-4 PM

1621 Executive Park Lane NE, Atlanta, GA 30329

Please park along the street (Woodcliff) behind our building.

I have so many retired products that need new homes! Stamps, paper, kits, embellishments, etc. Many are brand new, never opened.

BOGO! For every dollar you spend on retired items, you get a dollar toward an order of new products! For example, if you spend $50 on retired products, you get $50 toward a new order! You just add tax and shipping. So while you’re shopping the retired items, remember that for everything you buy, you’re actually getting twice that amount in merchandise! Now that’s a sweet deal!

Put together your wish list before you come, to make your order go more smoothly!

Do you have retired Stampin’ Up! products that you’d like to sell so you can order new products? Bring them to me by January 22 to add to the sale. Every dollar you sell goes toward an order of new products! All products must be marked with price and your ID – I recommend using the same washi tape for each item so we’ll know which items are yours when people are checking out. Feel free to contact me for more info: [email protected] or 404-661-5222.
