Year End Recap!!!

Posted on

Happy Friday….in case you were wondering. I’m so off on my days this week and I think next week might be the same!!! Today, I thought I would do a little Year End Recap before the year end!!!

Year End Recap,

Don’t forget that Stampin’ Up has the Year End Sales Event with Clearance Rack (retired items), Holiday Mini Catalog items that are retiring, and a few Annual Catalog items!!! The retiring and retired items are all while supplies last. Some items are at a fabulous discount! Click here to start shopping!!!

All orders of $40 earn Laura’s Loyal Stampers Stickers. These do not expire at the end of the year so no worries there. If you have earned a Gift Certificate, it’s a great time to use it in January with Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions Mini Catalog!!! If you have any questions on this or lost your gift certificate, just reach out!!!

Stamp Positioning Tool,

Tomorrow, December 30th, is the last day to reserve your own Stamparatus! You will have to wait till June to get your Stamparatus if you don’t reserve yours now! The Stamparatus is $49.00 (plus shipping and tax). You will enter your credit card at the time of reservation but Stampin’ Up won’t charge your card until it is available. The shipping and availability of your Stamparatus will be the end of March or April! This stamp positioning tool is super cool and makes multi-step stamping a breeze. I love mine and I have only had it for a few days. Check out yesterdays video to see it all in action! Click here to reserve your Stamparatus today!!!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend and a safe and fun New Years Eve!!! I’ll see you back here on Monday!!!

Notes for November!!!

Posted on

I still can’t believe it’s November. How about you?? So today, I thought I would do a few Notes for November to let you know about some specials and fabulous things going on this month!!!

Notes for November,

First things first…..Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers are now available. These things are amazing and fun. If you like to color, these are for you!!! If you like getting different shades, these are for you! You don’t like that look where a marker makes streaks  on your image….no worries, these are for you as they don’t do that! Even if you aren’t an artist (like me), you can play with these things and look like Picasso. I’m totally serious! They come in many colors in a light shade and dark shade. There is also a NEW Stamp Set out called Color Me Happy which has cool images for coloring in it. I love the lanterns and that Thank You greeting! The Color Me Happy Project Kit coordinates as well! There are many more colors available but I listed a few below:

Product List

Next up is the November Free Stamp Set for orders of $75.00 or more. Drum Roll……………It is Basket of Wishes!!! Any order of $75 or more placed within the month of November will receive this stamp set from me. It won’t come with your order but arrive separately. Click here to start shopping!

One final thing I wanted to share with all of you is MY CHRISTMAS WISH LIST! I know how much you all love Stampin’ Up! Products so why not get what you want under the tree this year. Fill out this form and pass it out to everyone asking what you want this year. There is also a bonus in there for you as well. Earn $5 for every order of goodies placed by a family or friend of yours. Woot Woot!!! If your wish list is SUPER long or time is a big factor, I also offer Gift Certificates for you to spend with me on anything you wish. Just let your friends and family know they can contact me!!!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Don’t forget Daylight Savings Time!!! See you back here on Monday! Happy Stampin’

We Celebrate On Fridays!!!

Posted on

We celebrate on Fridays because…..why not? We survived the week and made it to another weekend! For some that means relaxing and spending time stamping and for others that means enjoying the weather and spending time with family. What’s even better is when all of those things collide! Either way, we have a lot to celebrate!!!

August Laura's Loyal Stampers,

First, we have the August Laura’s Loyal Stampers Stickers!!! This is my reward program for all of my customers. I love giving back to those who love Stampin’ Up! as much as me. For every $40 order, you will receive a sticker and after 10 Stickers you get a $40 Gift Certificate. It doesn’t matter if it takes you 4 years or 4 months to earn this. I do all of the tracking for you! Just shop, earn, and enjoy!!!

We celebrate on Fridays,

Who else is loving those adorable little tags from the August Paper Pumpkin Kit??? I sure am! These have gone on lots of treats I’ve given out lately. I did a little Challenge for my Fabulous Friends Stamp Team and wrapped up their prizes!  Also, I used them for some of the prizes from the Virtual Girls Night Out Holiday Mini Catalog Party that I did on my Facebook Page earlier this week! It was so much fun and I hope everyone else enjoyed it as much as me.
