It's the day after Christmas and I'm hoping it was a great Christmas for all of you. It's always a busy season, but I love Christmas and the crazy chaos it brings with it.
I bought several Christmas card making kits last year when they were on sale with Stampin' Up. I finished them in good time, and even got them in the mail in time to reach their destinations!! I felt good about that. As I get older, I'm learning not to make things more complicated by making very difficult cards. Especially when I have to make 40-50 of them.
These are the products I used for my Christmas Cards this year. The kit is retired, but I encourage you to try kits for any occasion that you need multiples of cards. Every thing you need is included, as well as directions. You may need ink and some adhesive, but all other products are included.
As the New Year approaches, I am thoughtfully considering if I will continue as a Stampin' Up Demonstrator. I have been with them off and on for 10+ years. As a stamp artist I believe they have the best, most up to date products on the market. And it's always been a positive, creative thing for me that everything coordinates. I remember the days when I spent lots of time trying to choose ink, paper, ribbon, stamps, and designs to go together. I'm just not that talented, artistically to do this from a large group of mixed products. And then, I was never satisfied with the end results. So, for me Stampin' Up has eliminated that issue. But there is only so much "product" one person can buy. And I'm running over with good stuff.
I have had some good customers, but for their own reasons ordering has become very limited. I have always thought I would have parties, and I can think of lots of ladies to invite, but after working full time it just doesn't happen. Maybe next year, huh??
I have until March 31st to make my decision. If you need anything before then please let me know, or go to my online store and you can order directly from there.
January 3rd thru March 31 will be "Sale-a-Bration" time and the release of the "New Occasions Catalog." This is an awesome time to order from Stampin' Up as with every $50.00 order you can choose something free from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. My blog has a link to the Stampin' Up Site, or you can click here and go to www.stampinup.com to view the catalogs for Occasions and Sale-a-Bration beginning January 3rd.
From now until January 2rd the Year End Closeout is in progress, and you can view the Holiday Closeout Lists and year end savings below.
This years Holiday Catalog had been one of the best yet. And it has Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas products. Never to early to start next years cards!!!
These links go directly to my store if you just can't live without any of these products. Most of them will be discontinued after January 2, 2019. Please scroll thru to see all of the items.
I will keep you posted on my decision. Even if I leave Stampin' Up I plan to continue to blog and post what I'm doing.
Many, Many Blessings to you and yours, and Happy New Year!
