Saturday, September 26, 2020.......Special Stampin' Up! Update. . . changes are a comin'. . .

Did You Know? 


Did you know, that recently Stampin' Up! announced some pretty amazing changes? 😀

Normally we have Sale-A-Bration from the first of January until the end of March. 

Beginning in January of 2021 we will have TWO Sale-A-Brations during the year!!  Woot Woot!!

Each Sale-A-Bration promotion will run for two months

January-February - we will only offer domestically- sourced products in this brochure.  Short sales cycles combined with Chinese New Year have caused product availability issues. By only offering domestically sourced items you do not have to worry about products moving to non-orderable status!  YaY!!

July-August- this product selection will be available only while supplies last.  That is why I am telling you about this now....when the July Sale-A-Bration starts....MAKE SURE you get the must-have items right away.  Since these are not domestically sourced, they are only available while supplies last.

 Hey Hey!    

Just wanted to pop on quickly and let you know about SIX new classes!  

Yup.....and these are a new kind of class....they are a complete class with:

  •  the featured stamp set, 
  • a class packet that includes all the supplies and 
  • envelopes 
  •  printed tutorials

September 17, 2020.....Inspiration Thursday.....LOTS of inspiration for you....

 Good Morning Stampers! 

Today is another Inspiration Thursday.  I am sharing projects from my stampers who are taking part in my September Creative Inspiration Calendar Challenge. 

At the end of August I sent all my girls a calendar that had a creative challenge for each day of the month and encouraged them to send me pics of their completed challenges, so I could post them to inspire others.

Well...Carole has certainly rose to the challenges!  She has completed EVERY daily challenge so far this month! Wow! 

She says that she likes the challenge calendar as it motivates her to get into her craft room and use her products for a few minutes every day.  

Now I will be honest with you, there were two challenges that I would have bet money that she would not do.....and she did them!  Call me impressed!  

Ok enough babble I sound like a proud mother are Carole's beautiful challenge projects: 

September 10- Make a card following a sketch: 

September 11- make a fun fold card

September 12- Make a Thinking of You card

September 13- Choose three Stampin' Up! colors to make a card

September 14- make a card using a die

September 15- make a scrapbook layout

September 16- clean your craft room and organize your stuff

September 17- make and mail a card to someone for no reason...just to let them know you are thinking of them

Aren't her projects FABULOUS!  

Carole, thanks so much for sharing and inspiring others. gals that are playing along and creating....please share your projects...we all want to see what your making! 

There is still lots of challenges left this is the challenge calendar:
