Sale-A-Bration is the promotion during which Stampin' Up! rewards customers with a free specially designed Sale-A-Bration stamp set or other item with each $50 (before tax & shipping) purchase!

Sale-A-Bration (January 5th-March 31st) is the perfect time to host a Stampin’ Up! Party. I’ve seen the fantastic options—You will NOT be disappointed. (Some of you will receive the Spring Mini catalog (44 fun-filled pages) and Sale-A-Bration brochure in the mail, but I will have extras here too-Just let me know.)

Why now? Through Monday, Nov. 23 at 8pm, I am offering EXTRA hostess dollars on the night (or day) of your party to the FIRST FIVE of you to respond to my email, phone call or FB post and select a January or February date and time for a Party! Hostesses 6 and above will receive a $5.00 gift certificate to use at any time for either product or class fees.

The FIRST person to schedule will receive $20 EXTRA hostess dollars from me. The Second person to book will receive $15 in EXTRA hostess dollars, and the THIRD, FORTH AND FIFTH person will receive $10 EXTRA from me in addition to any hostess dollars she would regularly receive from Stampin’ Up! (Benefits from SU! begin at just a $150 total-pre-tax and shipping.)

What could you choose with your winnings? Stamps, Ink, Cardstock (8-1/2 X 11 or 12 X 12), Double-sided Scrapbooking paper or kits, buttons, brads or ribbons, an address stamp, punches, die cuts, scissors and more!

I hope you'll agree that this plan is easy (ABC and 123) and fun! So what do you need to know before you commit to this creativity party? That your guests will have fun and leave with worthwhile cards! Just call me if you have any questions!

Workshop projects

Here are samples of a few projects that hostesses can choose from during the next few weeks.

The witch's hat box made into a Santa. Again, LOVE the punches.

A gift card holder using a medium envelope cut in half. It has a pocket for the card and a pocket for a little note.

And cards:

More will be posted later this week.

Sts. Simon and Jude craft bazaar is this weekend. Raffle baskets and gifts.

November Customer Appreciation Drawing

In celebration of Stampin' Up! punches and the wonderful touches they add to our projects, I've chosen two different sets that coordinate with several punches.

November's Hostess Appreciation set is the retired Sale-a-Bration set Polka Dot Punches.

But you also have the chance to receive the current Level 2 hostess set Christmas Punch! Each person who places an order of $50.00 or more during November will get their name into a special drawing for this amazing hostess set!
Orders can be made either during a workshop, online, or by contacting me.

Two chances to receive some fantastic sets that coordinate with several punches.

70 degree days in November in Ohio

70 degrees and mostly sunny in November in Ohio means working outside as much as you can before the nasty wet and cold weather comes back. Mitch has been working late so the kids and I have been cleaning the leaves and flowerbeds. Well, I've cleaned the leaves and flowerbeds; the kids have jumped in the leaf piles.

Since tonight is the first meeting for Punch Club, cleaning the house and working on projects were priority.


Starburst using the Tag and small tag punches. I'll have a tutorial on this later this week.

The issue is choosing the projects to feature. There are so many awesome projects using the punches. Punches are a key tool in my papercrafting toolkit.

October's Customer Appreciation Winner

October's winner of this beautiful Level 2 hostess set (retired) is Shaela H!

October has been a wonderful month all around and I'm feeling very blessed. So I had the random number generator pick another number for a punch template.

Deanna B is the winner of the very handy punch template.

Thanks for being part of my fabulous month!
