One of the really nice things about being a demonstrator is that, not only do you learn about what is being introduced, but you get to order early.  This announcement came from Stampin' Up! this week and, as a demonstrator, I got to place an early order!  Can't wait for them to arrive and to use them!

As a new demonstrator you too could add these new tools to your collection.  The Starter Kit is $99 for $125 in product.  Stampin' Up! adds business supplies to your kit and ships the whole thing to you FREE!  Let me know if you would like more information or if you have questions.  I would love to have you join my team, Southern Stars!

If you prefer to remain as a Stampin' Up! customer I will keep you informed about the availability of the new BLENDS ~ they haven't told me yet so I can't tell you!  Sorry!  Susan Elise

With so many basic items provided, you will be able to get your brand new business off to a fast start-and spend your Starter Kit dollars on things like your favorite stamp sets and accessories!

This offer is good for any new recruit who joins during the month of July, including former demonstrators.  All Starter Kit orders must be submitted by 11:59 PM (MT) on July 31 to be eligible for this promotion.  You may not exchange your Essential Gift Pack items for other products, including stamp sets.  Please note: The Essentials Gift Pack will automatically be added to the Starter Kit.  I will add some card samples using this stamp set to Wednesday's Blog ~ thanks for stopping by!  If you have ANY questions about this offer or about becoming a demonstrator please let me know.  I have 18 years of Stampin' Up! experience to share!  Susan Elise

BONUS DAYS..........


Has your Wish List grown since the new catalog came out?

Then treat yourself to BONUS DAYS: for every $50 you spend July 1 - 31 (before shipping and tax), you'll get a $5 BONUS DAYS COUPON that you can use August 1 - 31.  

There is no limit to how many coupons you can earn, so shop all month!  Your coupon will be sent by email and can be redeemed by placing an order with me or by placing an online order.  

Best Deal Ever..............

This offer won't be here long and I wanted to make very sure that, as a hobby stamper, you knew that this really is the BEST DEAL EVER!  Becoming a demonstrator may seem like a BIG COMMITMENT to you but actually, it is continuing to do what you are already doing ~ only doing it more inexpensively!  AND, who doesn't like to save $$$$$$?  If I couldn't enjoy my favorite hobby, and save at least 20% every time I order, I would have quit a very long time ago.  Consider it.  Talk to me about it.  Or, just go to my website and SIGN UP!  You know you are going to spend $99 on Stampin' Up! products this month, or next, or the month after that (you can sign up for only 3 months any way, then drop if you are uncomfortable).  Look at the top line on the blog.  Do you see JOIN THE FUN?  DO.  HUGS, SE

Stitched from the heart


Stampin' Up! introduced a new product yesterday but I was intent on showing you the wedding pictures instead of telling you about STITCHED FROM THE HEART.  These framelit dies add a stitched border to circles, ovals and squares ~ check out this video for more information.

In addition, during November, Stampin' Up! is discounting coordinating stamp sets 25%.  Check the flyer and mark your catalogs ~ AC for annual catalog and HC for the Holiday catty.  This special is for the month of November so let me know if I can help you with ideas or if you'd like to order!  Thanks!  Susan Elise
