Feedspot Warning

I just received an email from these people.  I have no connection to them and do not use them.  If you are following my blog for the blog candy with Late Night Stampers, following me through Feedspot does not enter you in my drawing.  Only those who follow me on my blog will be eligible for the blog candy.  This is the same for anyone who left comments on Feedspot instead of my actual blog.  Until I received an email announcing I had 24 followers with them, I didn't even know they were basically stealing my blog posts.  I ask you to please check and make sure you are entered into my drawings by commenting and following on my blog.  I am trying to figure out how to block them from reposting my blog.  I have not given them permission to use my content.  If you have a blog, you might want to check into them.  Since I have heard some people are having trouble reaching the real blogs because of Feedspot, I am posting a link to my blog in this post.

October Facebook Swap Cards

It is so hard to do swaps for the fall this year.  Stampin' Up! retired pretty much every stamp set I could use for this time of year.  I haven't had the money to invest in very many of the new stamps in the new Holiday Catalog this year.  There are some really great ones I am still hoping to add to my collection.

I used a retired stamp set for this card along with a stamp from the hostess set Banner Greetings.  The theme for this swap was Colors of the Season/Friendship.

I used a retired stamp set for this card also.  The theme for this card was of course Halloween.  One of my favorite holidays.

Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit


EVERYDAY OCCASIONS CARDMAKING KIT


The Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit is a fantastic tool to introduce stamping, cardmaking, and Stampin' Up! in general to brand-new customers! First introduced on stage at Convention 2013, Everyday Occasions was developed with the new customer in mind. It is intended to introduce--by way of a simple, fun experience at a great price--the arts of stamping and cardmaking to people who have not yet experienced the joy of Stampin' Up! products.
Why go to the store when a birthday, graduation, wedding or even a time for expressing gratitude comes up? The Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit puts cards for all of those events right at your customers' fingertips, and best of all, they'll be handmade! The kit contains everything necessary (minus adhesive and scissors) to create 20 beautiful cards for almost any occasion, and it comes in a beautiful box to store them in. The kit is the perfect way to introduce people to Stampin' Up!--and it also makes the perfect gift for that creative someone you or your customers know!
Demonstrator Business Information
While we hope that experienced stampers enjoy the value, simplicity, and even the gift-giving potential of the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit, ultimately, the kit was designed as a tool for demonstrators to introduce new customers to the joys of cardmaking by providing a simple, fun experience at a great value. Our sincere hope is that, using this kit, you will experience great success in growing your customer base. And to help you do so, our Demonstrator Training department is offering a free webinar on Monday, September 30 from 3:00-5:00 PM (MT) to share some great ideas for how to use the kit in your business.
Watch the webinar for additional information
If you can't attend the webinar, no problem. We'll record it and make it available on this page. Look for the page to be updated with the recorded webinar a few days after the live broadcast.

Some things to be aware of
  • Because Everyday Occasions is designed to introduce stamping to brand-new customers, we will make it available for purchase through a variety of retail venues with the ultimate goal of connecting new customers with demonstrators in their areas. Negotiations with these retail venues are not yet complete, but we will be sure to keep you informed as they are decided.
  • Everyday Occasions is only available while supplies last. However, this does not mean that once they are gone, they are gone forever. We just do not want your new customers' first experience to be a backorder. If we run out of kits, we will turn them off. If the kits turn out to be as popular as we hope, we will turn them back on as soon as we are able to get more inventory.
  • We've created a downloadable flyer for you to distribute via e-mail or print. Click on the image to the right to download the flyer. 
  • The Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit is available through all order types and is a cash and carry item--meaning you can purchase them in advance and take them with you to sell at events, parties, craft or vendor shows, or as you meet potential new customers.
    • Have a new customer at a party or other event who can't quite decide where to start? You've got a kit for that!
    • Meet a potential new customer who wants a quick sample of what Stampin' Up! has to offer? You've got a kit for that! (Keep a few in your car!)
  • Keep in mind that the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit makes an excellent gift. One way the kit may appeal to existing customers or experienced crafters is as a gift to give away!
  • Because the only things not included are items almost everyone has--scissors and adhesive--consider upselling SNAIL and Paper Snips along with the Everyday Occasions kit.
  • These cute cards are easily suited to posting on social media. Assemble your favorite cards and post pictures on social media. Write something like, "Look what I just made with my Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit. They only take minutes to make!"

And want to know something really exciting? You can Cash & Carry the Starter Bundle!
There are a few different options for customers to choose from depending on their needs:

The great thing about the Pop & Place Holiday Gift Tag Book is that it gives you a small, easy-sell item to offer to those who are not ready to make a larger purchase yet. After they enjoy the tag book, you can chat with them about which shapes were the best--say "What shapes did you use up the fastest? Oh, I love that one too! You would love owning that punch, it's great for cards and projects of all types. Plus we have tons of stamps that coordinate with it!"When a customer purchases the tag book or one of the bundles, encourage them to buy a second tag book too. Remind them that they will need Christmas tags year after year and the stamps will still be great next year, but we won't have the punch book anymore.
Purchase some bundles as gifts, and encourage your customers to do so as well. And grab a few extras to have on hand for cash and carry at your fall and winter events. When those procrastinating customers come running to you, you will have a stress relieving and cute purchase to offer them!

Available October 4-December 31, 2013.

Christmas Ornaments/Gift Toppers


I made two versions of the Christmas Ornament from last years Holiday Catalog.  Now I am trying to decide which one I like best.  The ornament stamps and the matching framelits are still available for purchase.

Fall is in the air.

Lovely As A Tree has been in the Stampin' Up! catalog for many years.  It has probably been the longest running stamp set they offer.  The images cover all seasons.  I love this set and it was one of my first purchases, but this is the first time I have used it.  I belong to a Facebook group called Stampin Up Addicts.  We buy, sell, and swap on the group.  I love the swaps.  I participated in the Halloween swap we did in August and it was so much fun.  For the September swap, we did a Fall/Thanksgiving card.  This time we had enough interest to do two groups.  I signed up and sent my cards for the first group as soon as I could.  The second group had a lot of interest, but some of the ladies dropped out or didn't send in their cards.  When the call went out for more entries, I answered and created this card.  I am sadly lacking in Thanksgiving/Fall sentiments and had to use a non Stampin Up! sentiment for this card.  It is from Hampton Arts.  This is one of my few watercolor attempts.  This one turned out better than most.  The colors I used are Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip.  The image was stamped on watercolor paper with Stazon Black.  My card base is Bravo Burgundy.
