Warmth and Wonder Bluebird

During the month of October hostesses can earn $25 more in hostess dollars when their party's merchandise (before shipping and tax) total equals $250.   The Stampin' Up hostess plan already provides $40 in hostess dollars when the merchandise total equals $250, so this month you will get a total of $65 in hostess dollars .  You can use your hostess dollars to purchase catalog merchandise or you can choose exclusive hostess only stamp sets or a combination.   One of my favorite hostess sets is Warmth and Wonder in the Holiday Catalog.  It has 7 images and you can get this set for just $10 in hostess dollars.

Magnificent Maple Thanksgiving

Today was the first time in quite a while that I was able to spend time in my stamp room.  I will admit the going was a bit slow since I felt VERY rusty and it took a while to get anything made that I was happy with.   

Magnificent Maple

The colors are a little different but I like it, thank you Stampin' Up! Color Coach!  
Stamps: Magnificent Maple 131868, Tags for You 131823 , Dictionary130351
Ink: Crumb Cake, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla
Punches: Label Bracket  
Extras: Heat and Stick powder, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Burlap ribbon 

Magnificent Maple close

I hope you can see the glittery leaves.    I made the leaves by stamping them with the firm foam Classic Stampin' pads and then quickly pouring on Heat and Stick powder.  I heated it using my heat gun and then sprinkled on the Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  I heated it again just to set the glue and the glitter.   You have to work pretty quickly since Classic ink dries pretty quickly.  

Magnificent Maple side

Tomorrow I am going to do an update on all the awesome new offerings from Stampin' Up!  There are so many cool new products that you will want to know about!     


$25 For An Amazing Opportunity

Today is the first day of an incredible offer, you can become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for just $25.  Yes, you read that correctly...$25!  This offer is only good for TWO weeks (October 7-21 2013). Here's all you will receive for your $25:

  • $26.95 worth of Stampin' Up! products (it must be more than $25 but less than $26.95 before taxes)
  • a box of 8 annual catalogs
  • a package of 8 Holiday catalogs
  • Getting Started DVD
  • Customer Order forms 
  • Customer postcards

Anoother special perk along with this $25 starter  kit is when you hold your first stamping workshop  within 30 days of becoming a demonstrator  and the merchandise total is at least $150, you will be able to choose any stamp set from the annual catalog as a bonus.  You will receive this bonus when you place a demonstrator order in December.    Pretty sweet deal!
