Sugar Cookie Social Kits in the Mail Program

Making kits while enjoying sugar cookies? Yes, please! Sugar Cookie Socials combine make along kits in your mailbox and enjoying your favorite sweet treat. I provide the kits, you provide the treats. I also provide Youtube assembly videos so you can assembly the kits at your leisure and a Zoom call time so you can chat with me and other stampers on the call.

Place a $50 or more order (excluding shipping and tax) using a current host code which is listed on the side of my blog, VJUUXGDK is the current one as of typing this post. Then I will mail your make along kits and email you the Zoom call link closer to the call date.

Zoom calls are the fourth Wednesday of the month. April 28th, 9-10am or 6-7pm, is the next call date.

Why do I call these session Sugar Cookie Socials? Click here for the story. Bring your tea, coffee and a sweet treat to share what you enjoy for refreshments. It’s fun to see differences in region and taste.

Dandy Garden April Suite of the Month!

The January to June 2021 catalog is filled with lots of super awesome paper crafting products. I have banded with a group of global demonstrators to offer a super awesome Suite of the Month program using products from this catalog!

One product suite per month will be highlighted. The April suite is the Dandy Garden Suite on pages 24-27 of the January to June catalog. Purchase the Dandy Garden Suite or the Garden Wishes bundle or the Dragonfly Garden bundle plus product to get your order over $50 (excluding shipping and tax)and I’ll mail you 2 make alongs kits. The Youtube assembly videos will be emailed to you so you can assemble the kits at your leisure.

In addition, I am collaborating with other demonstrators across the globe that will be sharing 2 projects each using the same product suite via Youtube videos. You will get a bundle of ideas to use with the rest of your product suite by watching these videos. Super Sweet!

Please order early in the month if you want to participate in the Zoom socials since the socials will be held on the third Wednesday of the month, 9-10am and 6-7pm, central time. I will need some time to prep your kit and mail it to you. 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 use host code VJUUXGDK if your order stays under $150 (excluding shipping and tax). Remove the host code if your order is over $150 so you can redeem all the host rewards.

Here are the Suites being featured each month with links to my online store and using host code EUNVSZHN. All page numbers refer to the January-June 2021 catalog.

April – Dandy Garden Suite, pages 24-27, a dragonfly punch in 2 sizes! Build your own suite to reach a minimum of $50 in orders (excluding shipping and tax). I will be using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (stamp set and punch) for the make and takes. So you might consider purchasing this bundle so you can create along with me. If you are doing a build your own suite, make sure to include the Dandy Laser Cut Paper pack so you get the delicate dragonfly laser cuts to work with! I won’t be including the laser cuts in your kits due to the nature of how they are packaged for customer use (a few of each laser cut per package).

May – Oval Occasions, page 65, 2 sizes of ovals in one punch! Build your own suite to reach a minimum of $50 in orders (excluding shipping and tax).

Additional suites for the summer months will be announced after I receive my copy of the new annual catalog that goes live on May 4th.

If you are not interested in these suites, I’ll still reward you with a different set of make and take kits with a qualifying order through the Social Cookie Social program. Click here for details on the Sugar Cookie Social program.

Thanks for stamping with me!

P.S. Here is a Facebook Live video sharing the Dandy Garden Suite and my current Kits in the Mail designs. I share in the video how I created the focal point for the greeting card pictured.

You Missed It! I had a crack o’ dawn timeslot, lol.

I already demonstrated this hand stamped greeting card at the crack o’ dawn this morning, well, the crack for a Saturday morning anyway, at 8:30am my time.

fully lined card inside for lots of writing room…

I added some layers in real time during the presentation including crumpling the bumblebee mat, inking all the cardstock edges with Crushed Curry ink using a sponge wedge and coloring the open weave ribbon with the inked sponge too. You will need to watch the video to see the upgrades. Ask to join the Facebook group to see the video and you will be rewarded with 16 other demonstrations too! Or watch the presentation that has been uploaded to my Youtube channel if you are not on Facebook.

If you like watching demonstrations using current Stampin’ Up! products, then save the date for the May 22nd Global SU Share Fair! We will be featuring products from the brand new annual catalog that goes live on May 4th! We start with demonstrators from Australia, move to the United Kingdom and then hop over the pond for the Canadian and United States demonstrators. Best part is you can watch from the comfort of your stamp space and recreate the projects using your supplies. Replay is available so you can catch the ones you are sleeping through:)
