A Sneak Peek & Some Important Reminders

This is a busy week,  and all this excitement is keeping on my toes!  Still, I have some great projects on-deck to share with you this week.  What fun!  While I am preparing for our big World Card Making Day event on Friday and several Stampin’ Up! events this weekend, there are a lot of promotions you need to hear about (or be reminded of).  Being the multi-tasker that I am, I’m utilizing today’s post to remind you of these promotions.  After I walk through the promotions and reminders, I am sharing a sneak peek at the project I’ll be sharing on my blog tomorrow.  Buckle up – you are in for quite a thrill-ride!

Let’s start with the promotions!  Yippee Doodle Dee!


Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies!  Monday was the first day you could order Stampin’ Up!’s Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies – a pre-order opportunity of an amazing, new product you’ll be able to order from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog.  Does it get any better than that?!  You can click on this image to see these new dies in my online store:

Last Chance to Join my One-for-One Swap.  I’ve received A LOT of cards for my 2016 Holiday One-for-One Card Swap.  YAY!  Did you wait until the last minute?  If you still want to join my Holiday One-for-One Swap, click on the picture below.  As long as your card (and corresponding self-addressed, stamped envelope) is received by Wednesday, November 9, you will be included in the swap.  one-for-one-card-swap

PLACING AN ORDER?  If you are placing an order today (and why wouldn’t you?), here are a couple of things to think about:

  • Earn Host Rewards.  Did you know that you can earn free product (including, but not limited to the Hostess sets) with orders greater than $150?  You can read more about that here.  With only these new Framelits and the discounted stamps, you are close to earning Host Rewards.
  • Hostess Code.  If you are placing an order less than $150, please consider adding the Hostess Code to your order – you can find the current Hostess Code here.

Sneak Peek.  I’m excited about the card I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow.  It’s a card I made over the weekend – although this is only a small portion of the card, it gives you quite a broad view of the new card.  What do you think?  Can you tell what stamps I used to create the background for this card?  If you don’t want to guess, I’ll understand – either way, I’m sharing the answer tomorrow.  Please come back tomorrow to see the rest of this card!


Thanks for stopping by today!
