Winter Themed Pinwheel Tower Kits in the Mail

Those pinwheel tower cards are intriguing…I decided to design my next set of Kits in the Mail using this design. One card features a woodsy deer theme using Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Crumb Cake. The other card features Fresh Freesia and woodland animal friends. So cute!

Supplies included in the kit may vary but should look close to this…

The sentiment images are not included in the kit. I used the Tidings and Trimmings stamp set and Frosted Gingerbread stamp set along with a Cherry Cobbler ink pad to complete the kits. Have a Multipurpose Liquid Glue available to attach all the pieces.

Incentive Trip Goal Update – Almost There!

Hello Stampers! It has always been a goal for me to earn the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip. A few weeks back, I shared that the goal was somewhere out there, on the distant horizon. I could see it when I squinted my eyes. As these weeks passed since that update, I have been inching closer to the horizon through your sales purchases. THANK YOU ALL for those purchases! Today is the day I will be getting thank you gifts prepared: pdf tutorial emails sent and cards ready for snail mail posting for those that have purchased so far in September. You are welcome to continue to place orders as every order helps! Click here to shop using a current host. Remove the code from the online store if your order is over $150 so you can redeem all the host rewards yourself. Make sure to have your Sale-a-bration rewards picked out, every $50 increment in orders receive exclusive Sale-a-bration items! AND if your order is over $300, you receive the In Your Words stamp set for free from Stampin’ Up! All dollar values are excluding shipping and tax.

There is another way for me to earn the trip and that is to build my team by adding new demonstrators that sign up with me as their team leader. You might be surprised at what you receive as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from the company and from me to help you support whatever your stamping dream may be. Just ask if I can help you with your dream whether it’s being able to get a few more items because the demo discount helps you do that, receiving exclusive pdf tutorials from me or opening your snail mail box with a surprise from me. You may also have other stamping dreams. Let’s dream together!

RIGHT NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO CONSIDER JOINING MY TEAM BECAUSE STAMPIN’ UP! WILL INCLUDE A FREE BUNDLE OF YOUR CHOICE FROM THE OPTIONS LISTED IN THE GRAPHIC BELOW. Click here or the graphic below to zoom to the online sign up process. Please make sure my name is listed at some point in the process so you know you are signing up with me. Signing up to enjoy the demo discount is the #1 reason that stampers join my team.

So the deadline of September 30th, 2021 to earn the trip draws near. If you are able to help me reach this 18 years in the making goal by placing an order or joining my team, I would appreciate!

Thanks so much!

Tidings of Christmas is the September Suite of the Month

Suite of the Month is a unique program where you are rewarded for purchasing the designated suites from me. Yippee! You earn both of my make and take kits for free that I feature in my Youtube videos when you purchase the designated suites from me. Then follow along in the video to assemble the kits when it’s convenient for you. I’ll also include a Zoom social so we can chat about all things Stampin’ Up! or bees or cake decorating or whatever else we can find interesting to discuss:)

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite. So you will get a bundle of ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. The video links and project photos will arrive in your email box as a pdf file. Super Sweet and Super Easy!

Please order early in the month if you want to participate in the Zoom socials since the socials will be held later in the month. When I see an order come through with the designated Suite of the Month, I’ll ship your make and take kit to you automatically for that month. Please Note: If you purchase the designated suite after the month has past for that suite, I will only be able to share the video links and not the make and take kits.

You are welcome to order any and all of the suites on the same order so you can earn and spend all the host rewards. If your order stays under $150 (excluding shipping and tax), please use the host code on the right side of my blog when ordering. If your order is over $150, don’t use a host code so you can redeem all the host rewards yourself.

Here are the Suites being featured with links to my online store using a current host code. All page numbers refer to the May-April 2021-2022 catalog unless noted.
