Hello and Get Ready

Hi there! It’s been over a year… I know, it’s been crazy. Exciting changes, though, and I’m finally crafting and ready to blog again. I hope I can keep up with regular posts.

But, first. While I get ready, I want to tell you about TWO sales coming up in October. That way you don’t kill me for missing out on these great deals.

To help you celebrate (and hopefully craft on) World Card Making Day, Stampin’ Up! is having a sale on select items. World Card Making Day is October 7 this year (it’s usually the first Saturday of October), but one day was not enough. The sale will last for 10 days, October 1 to 10.

The sale is for 15% off all notecard and envelope sets, as well as select stamp sets. You can view the flyer here.

There is also a great deal on Fast Fuse, a super duper sticky tape runner. Buy one Fast Fuse, and get TWO refills FREE! That’s a $25 value for just $10. I’m stocking up.

The second sale is one that I’ve been waiting for! This sale lasts the whole month of October, and many papers will coordinate with the stamp sets on sale for World Card Making Day. How this works is that you add three packs of qualifying Designer Series Paper to you cart, then the fourth pack will come up free. In my interface, I have to add the fourth pack to get it free; I’m not sure how if you would get prompted in the customer online store. Just make sure you get all of your packs!

In previous years, we could only order regular 12×12 packs as part of this sale, but this year, it has been expanded to include one specialty pack and three 6×6 packs. Wow! Two packs from the holiday catalog are also included. Here’s a link to the flyer so you can see the details.

I would be remiss in telling you about other deals going on, too.

Host a qualifying party (or put in an order with your wishlist) from now until October 31, and if your total is $300 or more (before tax and shipping), you get a free stamp set for the holidays on top of your regular Stampin’ Rewards.

I’m still trying to decide how I want to do my Christmas cards, and I haven’t qualified for this set myself, but don’t be surprised if it does make it onto one card or another…

The reindeer, sentiment, and candles are outline stamps with matching solid stamps that you can use to color the outlines or to use alone. Pretty nifty.

Here’s the flyer to see more details, as well as images of the set.

Okay, this is not really a deal. More like a special reason to get Paper Pumpkin in October and November. If you like hand crafted cards and gifts for the holidays, the October AND November kits will feature those for you. Plus, the two kits are designed to go together. We don’t get any previews either, so I’m excited to see what’s in store for these two kits. Just sign up by the 10th to get that month’s kit. So, go! 🙂
