Reminders GALORE!

Share |

Here are a few Stampin' reminders for you before the month ends:

I'm now accepting sign ups for the next round of Stampers Club, beginning in August and running for 10 months. If you SIGN UP before July 31, you'll get your choice of ANY 2 IN COLOR ink pads as a special bonus from me, and that's in addition to all the other perks, such as Hostess benefits, free merchandise, private Club members-only blog with projects and instructions... and more!

If you are interested in coming to stamp with us once a month at the studio, please contact me and grab a spot -- and bring a friend! Details are here....

For those who are new to my blog and mailing list this month, I hope you have been enjoying everything so far. If you, or anyone else who's on my list, would like to receive Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogues, please send an email with your address and phone and I'll make sure you get one.

BTW, as demonstrators we have already laid eyes on the upcoming 40 page Holiday Mini Catalogue. We can’t tell you about it yet but oh, my gosh! Lots more than just our usual, wonderful stamps, inks and papers! As demonstrators, we will be able to preorder ‘things’ August 1st, while our customers will be able to purchase Sept 1. So if you like to get the scoop on fun things like this early, being a demonstrator might be for you!

There are so many great perks associated with being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, and you can get started for as little as $105 for our new Mini Starter kit.

You can sign up online and will get your kit and special bonuses from me in just a week! If you prefer the Standard Kit, there's some great specials for that one too...

I have scheduled all my classes from August to November and they can be found here (Demonstrators, check HERE). If you are attending Stampin' Palooza this fall, be sure to check out the newly-posted list of supplies to bring along on the website.

You can place your orders with me anytime: on the phone, by email, in person or even online. A little known fact about our cool online ordering system is that whenever you see a sample, you can click on it to see what products were used. The best part is that you can select any products you may not have and they go right into your shopping cart!

Don't forget about my July Ordering Special of a free tutorial as well as the current "Heart to Heart" Punch Deal-Of-The-Week, both specials being good until the end of July.

Brand New Catalogues are still available (FREE) as well as summer/fall workshop dates! Please contact me to get yours and check my online calendar for a date that will work for your workshop. I'll send catalogues anywhere in Canada and you'll love the new colors and fabulous new stamp sets! Just contact me for details, please...

Happy stamping,
