Just a reminder, today is the LAST DAY of the 25% off 25 stamp sets sale.  Don’t miss out!

If you place an order today, you will be entered in a drawing to win the hostess benefits and enjoy a little shopping spree in the Stampin’ Up catalog!  Each $25 you spend earns you one entry in the drawing.  Just click here to shop in my online store, and enter the hostess code YPBWBUFH in the lower left hand corner of your screen when you are viewing your shopping cart.  I will notify the winner this afternoon via email.

Now on to some fun festive projects!  I met up with some of my stamping friends for dinner last week – always fun to see these sweet ladies and just as fun to share ideas with each other!  We each made some fun holiday-themed projects to swap, I’ll share them with you over the next few days.  Here is an adorable pumpkin from Beth Crocker that I just love (and aren’t I disciplined that I did not eat the chocolate yet?  No guarantees on how long it will last now that I have the pictures I need…)



  • Stamp Set:  none!
  • Ink:  Early Espresso (Stampin’ Write Marker)
  • Cardstock:  Pumpkin Pie
  • Tools:  Simply Scored, glue

What a cute idea for Halloween gifts for teachers, neighbors, coworkers – just a fun little something that is especially appropriate for those not into the whole creepy/scary Halloween scene.

I believe the tutorial for this project came from Brenda Quintana at http://www.qbeesquest.blogspot.com.  I know I have seen other cute chocolate kiss-based projects there before.  🙂

Stampin’ Up!’s 25th Anniversary celebration just keeps getting better and better.  October has been the best month yet in my opinion!

This morning Stampin’ Up rolled out a list of 25 stamp sets that will be available for 25% off between now and October 28!  Both wood mount and clear mount are on sale, as well as the French & Spanish versions of the stamps.

But wait, there’s more!  I am going to jump on the bandwagon and offer a mystery hostess drawing!  For every $25 you spend in my online store before noon central time on October 28th, you will receive one entry into the drawing.  I’ll draw a name at noon central time on 10/28 and the winning name will get a shopping spree – a chance to pick whatever goodies they want using the hostess benefits earned from everyone’s orders put together! Hostess benefits start at $25 but can go way up from there depending on how many people participate.  Don’t forget, that promotion where hostesses get a $25 bonus for parties $250 and up is still going on!!

To participate in the mystery hostess drawing, shop in my online store and use the hostess code YPBWBUFH in the lower left corner of the screen at checkout.  Local customers, you can email me your order and have it shipped to my house to save a little on shipping.


Another bonus!  Today is Tuesday so the Weekly Specials have just been posted.  These are selected current items available at a discount while supplies last.  Looks like COOKIE STAMPS are included among other things this week, so if you have been wanting to get those for the holidays now is your chance!!  Weekly special purchases do count toward your mystery hostess entry.


Finally, one more big announcement:  Stampin’ Up has extended the $25 Starter Kit deal for one more day.  You now have until the end of today to take advantage of this deal if you would like to.  Click HERE to find out more!!

It’s the most exciting day of the Stampin’ Up! year!  The debut of the new annual catalog is always an exciting time, and this year it is even more exciting than usual with the color refresh.  Without further adieu, here it is:

Things to know:

  • The new annual catalog goes live at Noon MDT (that’s 1:00 central time for my local friends).  Online ordering is currently down while they update with ALL the new products, so don’t try to place an order until the catalog goes live.
  • Today is also the LAST day to order from the Spring Catalog – these products will retire forever tonight at midnight
  • Monday, June 3 is the LAST day to order retiring products from the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog.  You can check them out here.

If you are paying close attention, you will see that there is just a 12 hour window TODAY where you can order from ALL THREE CATALOGS at once.  I don’t think I can remember a time when we’ve had three catalogs live at one time – that’s exciting!

Want some FREE things from the new catalog?  Please join in my Mystery Hostess Online Workshop!  Just use hostess code RJS9GUXW when you place your order online.  For every $25 you spend between now and June 3, you will get an entry in the drawing – the winner will get ALL the hostess benefits earned from all my customers’ orders put together.  This could be as little as $25 in freebies but could go way up from there if my sales are high this weekend!  Tell your friends!  🙂  The winner will be drawn at 9:00 pm central time on June 3 and will be notified by email.

To shop, just click HERE to go to the online store (remember it is down between now and noon MDT today while the updates are being added, but I promise it will be back this afternoon!).  When you are viewing your shopping cart, there is a box in the lower left hand corner of the screen to enter the hostess code; just copy RJS9GUXW and paste it right in that box!  

Now excuse me while I go and put together my own order from the new catalog.  My wish list includes ink pads, markers, and cardstock in the ten new colors from the color refresh PLUS the five new In Colors……and that’s before I even get to the stamps!  What’s on your wish list??
