June 30th nearly here

In a matter of 1hr and 15 mins, it will be June 30th (yes I am up late doing this post!).  This means a couple of things:

  1. It is the LAST DAY you can get your hands on the stamp set "Reason to Smile".  You can get it for free by placing an order of $125 or more, or you can add it to an order for just $28.95 (clear) or $35.95 (wood).
  2. It is also the day that I am closing my scrapbook survey.  For everyone that completes the survey, you will receive $5 off your next order - simply quote the code at the end of the survey when you place your order with me to activate your discount.  

Also, don't forget that you can also earn FANTASTIC hostess rewards which will continue through July for any workshops that make $650 or more.  An extra $90 in FREE goodies is all yours on top of the usual generous rewards!  Simply email me or give me a call to book a date to hold your own workshop and to start enjoying FREE products.

A little appreciation

One of my hostess clubs is coming to an end and the ladies are placing their final orders this month.  It is amazing to think that another 12 months has just flown by.  A few of the ladies have indicated that they will not be continuing on in the next group (to start in September '12), so at this point in time, I have 3 spare places for anyone that would like to be a part of this club.

I will put out a call for interest in the next couple of weeks, but if you already know that you would like to be a part, please contact me and put your name down.  Places are snapped up VERY quickly, because these clubs (aka stamp clubs) are extremely good value for all the members.  Check out the "clubs and groups" tab for more information.  If you would like to speak to someone who has been in the club for their opinion, I can arrange this.

For the ladies that are leaving, I have started to make some thankyou cards.  The two ladies that these are destined for are not on the web, so I am not spoiling the surprise by showing them!  These cards were very quick to do, and I love the look that a 2 step stamp set gives (a little messy, yet entirely good looking).  I used 'Flower Fancy' (p 65 IBC $66.95 wood only), but you could use the limited edition and exclusive stamp set 'A Reason to Smile' that we have available only until June 30th (7 more days).

By creating a number of layers and popping on some embellishments, you can make an extremely eye catching card very quickly.

Materials used:
Cardstock - Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla
Paper - Limited Edition SDSP, Designer Series stack (Brights)
Stamps - Flower Fancy, Thankyou Kindly, Medallion
Ink - Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black, Alqays Artichoke, Pool Party, Soft Suede
Other - dimensionals, glue dots, buttons (brights collection), sponge

A quick note

Two things that I want to quickly let you know today:

If you want to get your hands on the exclusive and limited stamp set "Reason to Smile", you will need to contact me ASAP.  This stamp set is only available until June 30th and you can get it for FREE by placing an order of $125 or more.  Alternatively, you can purchase it for $28.95 (clear) or $35.95 (wood).

Terrific news for those that love embossing or want to start branching into this technique.  The Embossing Buddy is now back in stock.  This item has been unavailable since our supplier ceased production, however this has now been rectified and we are able to supply them once more.  Embossing Buddys are essential items if you are keen on heat embossing as they will ensure that your emboss powder remains ONLY where you want it to be.  Pop one on your next order.

I need your responses please

As previously mentioned, I am conducting a survey to find out the interest of running scrapbooking classes for my current and (hopefully!) future customers.

I would really appreciate as many responses as possible from those that currently attend classes that I run and from those that would like to attend classes that involve scrapbooking.  There is also a question about Class by Mail, so even if you don't live local to me and cannot attend classes in person, this survey is still of relevance and I can use your input.

In anticipation of your involvement - THANKS!

Scrapbook survey

Just a quick note to inform you that the scrapbook survey I mentioned that was to go out last week hasn't been posted yet due to technical issues at my end.  With luck, this survey will go live TODAY (Wed 13th).  There will be a link on this blogsite for you to access the survey and I am hoping that everyone on my e-neswletter list will receive a link direct in their inboxes.

If you don't personally receive a link via email, please access the survey via here.

Please take some time to fill it providing me with information I am able to build a better business more tailored to what my customers want and hence, keep everyone happy!

Don't miss out

I am currently tearing my hair out looking for a packet of envelopes that I specifically purchased in order to do Henry's thankyou cards.  And do you think I can find them now I want them?  No.  It is driving me INSANE.  For those that have seen my creative space, you will know that I do not keep the tidiest of rooms however, I have only ever once before lost something in my mess and that was Biddy's doing not mine.  So to have completely misplaced something that had a specific purpose is just doing my head in.

And I have now resorted to cleaning up (shock, horror) which probably means that I have now misplaced 10 other things that I will be looking for in a few days time!  Sigh.....

Anyway, onto more exciting things.  As I mentioned in my previous post, there are 2 specials running for the month of June (and one of them into July).  Those that have received my e-newsletter have already received this information last week (sign up if you haven't already!), but to let everyone else know, here are the details:

During June, you can receive the stamp set 'A Reason to Smile' absolutely FREE just by placing an order of $125 or more.  It is yours in either clear or wood mount.  You can purchase this set if you like; clear is $28.95 and wood is $35.95 but it is ONLY available throughout June.   That gives you 18 days to get your very own set.

The second special that we have running this month is a hostess special.  For any workshop orders of $650 or more, the hostess will receive an EXTRA $90 in free hostess dollars!  This is fantastic.  So for a $650 workshop, the hostess would normally reeive $100 in freebies plus 50% off any full priced item, but with this special, she will now get $190 worth of freebies plus the 50% off any full priced item.  Oh my, what do you think you could get for that!  A Big Shot and some accessories, a stack of stamps, bulk out your stamp pad collection, purchased some of the tools you have been eyeing off.....the list is endless.

This hostess special is available until July 31st, so contact me to book your very own workshop today!  I have updated some star dates on my calendar, so check them out (booking on a star date will give you an extra freebie).  If you would like some help to invite some friends, I am here for you.  If you are unsure about hosting a workshop, let me get one of my past hostesses to have a chat to you about how easy they found it and the wonderful goodies they received.  Trust me, you will want to host a workshop.  It costs you nothing but your time and you have a great couple of hours seeing some new stuff.

I am happy to tailor workshops...if you are interested in cardmaking, scrapbooking or mini 3D projects, just mention this and I will arrange for these to feature in your workshop.

Don't delay on these 2 specials and miss out.
