In 2010 when we did our big color renovation
we shared our plans for smaller color refreshes
every three to five years to keep our colors on
trend. Well it has been three years and we are
excited to announce that the upcoming 2013–
2014 annual catalog will include 10 new colors
(most of which are returning In Colors® from previous years.)
Thanks to all who attended my Open House for the kickoff of Sale-a-Bration! It was great seeing you all! While my mother-in-law was visiting today, I had her draw out the winning names for both the door prize and the Mystery Hostess prize. Here they are -
The door prize (a Stampin' Up! reusable shopping bag filled with a chalkboard decor element, 2 packs of designer paper, 4 stamp sets, and 4 rolls of ribbon) goes to Stephanie P.!
I totaled all the orders together from the Open House and it came to $316.05. So, the Mystery Hostess (Kelly C.) receives a pack of Silver Glimmer Paper and $50 to spend in any catalog!!! WOOHOO!!
Congratulations Stephanie and Kelly! And thanks again to all of you for attending! I hope to stamp with all of you some more during Sale-a-Bration! :)
This fall I hosted my second Operation Write Home event where we make blank greeting cards for the troops to have to send back home to their families. Somehow I completely forgot to blog about it, so I will be sharing the pictures and cards we made over the next few posts. We were so lucky to again have the American Legion in Plainfield donate the space for the event and Papa Murphy's again donated free pizza taste tests! My fabulous downline members and customers helped as table leaders at the different stamping stations. Couldn't have done it without them!
Linda shows some stampers how to make the cookie monster card.
JoAnne, her daughter, and her daughter's boyfriend made TONS of cards!
The busy stampers also had the chance to win loads of prizes donated by area businesses.
If you've never tried Papa Murphy's take-and-bake pizzas, you don't know what you're missing!
Due to our partnership with Sizzix, we are pleased to be able to offer a test run of the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine in our North American markets. We have 4,000 available to be sold only while supplies last. If this product test goes well, we may offer the Texture Boutique again in the future. The Texture Boutique works with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to transform ordinary cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum into an embossed, textured masterpiece. This machine embosses only; it does not die cut.
'Tis the season of giving, and the Texture Boutique makes a wonderful gift for anyone who wants to create their own elegant embossed art. To help you with your gift-giving needs, we're offering a special value bundle that saves you $5.90. If you prefer, you can also purchase the Texture Boutique alone. Looking for stocking stuffers? Pick up some additional embossing folders.
