November 30, 2010

Because of the huge response to the half-off Starter Kit, we have depleted our inventory of the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalogues and have turned off this item for ordering for the remainder of the sales period.  While we are unable to print additional catalogues in time for them to be of any use to you, both you and your customers can still access the Holiday Mini Catalogue online  from the Customer and Demonstrator Websites, and can still order products from the 2010 Holiday Mini Catalogue until the end of the sales period on January 3, 2011.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Feature Product - Northern Hearts Stamp Set (Level 1 Hostess)

Northern Hearts is a level 1 Hostess set in the holiday Mini.  I just love it! I have just added this one to my collection and plan to play with it some this week. 

I'll post some cards made with this set over the next few days - I'd love to see your ideas also.  Feel free to leave a comment with a link to your project or send an e-mail to iscrapnstamp@gmail.com - We'll show a selection of the submissions here.  

All participants will be entered in our upcoming Blog Candy draws for hand-stamped cards, and other Inky goodness - Stay Tuned! :) 

Would you like to add Northern Hearts to your Stamp collection? You can't buy this set - Place an order of $200 before tax and shipping to qualify to receive this set for FREE. 

Would you like to try before you buy?  Contact me and we'll arrange a time for you to come out and create.  Get a few friends together, put on a pot of coffee and we'll make it a workshop!

We are happy to announce that the quality problems we were experiencing with the Fancy Flower and 2-1/2" Circle Punches have been addressed and resolved! These punches will be available for ordering starting on December 1--just in time for the Occasions Mini preorder. This is great news because the 2-1/2" Circle Punch coordinates perfectly with the new Occasions Mini Take a Spin Set and coordinating Spinner Hands.
Thank you for your patience as we work through the quality issues with our punches. We'll update you as soon as the quality issues with other punches are resolved.

Great news! The Watercolor Wonder Crayons are now available for purchase. As we mentioned in a previous current update, the Watercolor Wonder Crayons were delayed due to a relocation of our supplier. We now have inventory and you can start ordering today!
When you and your customers receive your Watercolor Wonder Crayons, you may notice that some of the crayon sleeves feature old artwork on them. This does not affect the quality of the crayons; we simply need to deplete inventory of crayons with the old artwork before we use crayons featuring the new artwork.
Use the following item numbers to purchase your Watercolor Wonder Crayons:
  • 120949 New Color Kit
  • 119802 Subtles
  • 119803 Regals
  • 119804 Brights
  • 119805 Neutrals
Thanks for your patience!

Announcing New Cyber Club -

Level 1 Hostess Set "Afterthoughts"  - Order via my website Dec 1 - 31st to Win!
As a child,  I always thought that somehow our family should convert and celebrate the US holiday, so that I could escape having Thanksgiving dinner on my birthday weekend.  Turkey was (well is) my Dad's favorite dinner though, we celebrated my birthday and turkey days right along side each other for many years.
For what it's worth, we also celebrated Christmas in July at our Cultas Lake campsite, and Thanksgiving in November at Dad's campsite in Birch Bay, WA in later years.  You've never cooked a turkey til you've tried to cook a turkey in a trailer or motorhome oven that isn't big enough to change your mind!  It's a challenge, let me tell you!  :)

In honour of the US Thanksgiving Holiday, many US based sites celebrated Black Friday, and are celebrating Cyber Monday today.  I thought that I'd take this opportunity to launch my new Cyber Club.

  • Do you love Stampin' Up! Products?
  • Do you love those Hostess Sets, but no time or room to host a party?
  • Do you like to order your supplies online?
  • Do you like to get something for free?
Does this sound like you?  Let me help you!

Option I - Host a Catalog Party -  

Let me help you organize a catalog party where you can share the catalog with your friends and family and accept orders on your behalf.  These orders would be submitted to me by phone or e-mail so that I can keep your orders together and ensure you get the hostess benefits for all orders from your party. 

I take care of all of the arrangements, and calculating - all you have to do is share the catalogs and website link with your friends and family, then choose your free products and hostess stamp set.  SO Easy! 

Option II - No Commitment Cyber Club

  • Place an order of $40 or more through my online website (before tax and shipping).  This automatically enters you to win the Hostess Stamp Set of the month!
  • Order More than once during the month, get more than one entry. 
  • There is no monthly commitment to join this club, all you have to do is order Stampin' Up! merchandise through my site. 
  • At the end of each month there will be a random drawing from all online orders placed for the Hostess Stamp Set of the Month.
  • The Hostess Set that is up for Grabs will be posted at the beginning of each month so all participants will know ahead of time what set they are trying for. 
This offer valid only through your Stampin' Up! Consultant Tammy Wilson and cannot be transferred to another consultant.  For more information send e-mail to iscrapnstamp@gmail.com

Carryover Items - Not in Our Current Catalog but Still Available..

With our US friends and family celebrating Thanksgiving today, and the holiday season well on its way I find myself thinking of the variety of holidays celebrated at this time of year.  In particular, of a couple of very special friends who celebrate Hanukkah rather than Christmas, but always remember to acknowledge our holiday.  

We in turn have always made a point to wish a Happy Hanukkah in return.  After all the important part of the message - at least in my mind - isn't to create a pomp and circumstance around our differences in religion or 'chosen' holidays, but rather to wish our friends and family well all year round, but especially during the holidays. 

In any case, in looking for some other resources this morning, I came across the attached document of carry over items that are no longer in our catalog but are still available.  I thought I'd share it here today for anyone that might be interested.  

If you'd like to set up an appointment to play or need help mounting your stamps, or on a particular technique let me know, and I'll do my best to help.   Is there something you'd like to see featured in an upcoming class or a workshop for your friends?  Let me know!  iscrapnstamp @ gmail.com  (without the spaces)  

Happy Holidays! 

~ Tammy
