"For You" card - using Sale-A-Bration set Vintage Labels

Did some creating last night, to do an invite to my Workshop of a Lifetime with Shelli. This invite was for our mayor.

As I'm getting ready to do my invite, I went through all my sets - current and retired. And you know what I found? I do not have a SINGLE stamp that says ANYTHING about invites. :P Now I know I don't have a lot of sets compared to some people, but still, you'd think that in FORTY some odd sets, I'd have SOMETHING? Nope. LOL

Anyway, it gave me the opportunity to use the GORGEOUS Sale-A-Bration set, Vintage Labels, and use the "For You" sentiment to improvise.

If you like the Vintage Labels set, you can EARN IT FOR FREE during Sale-A-Bration! Curious about Sale-A-Bration? You get FREE stamps for ordering Stampin' Up! merchandise during the promotion! Spend $65 and get a set; host a $395 workshop and get a set; join my team and get a set! It's THAT easy.

Cardstock - Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink - Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Elegant Eggplant, Versamark
Stamps - Eastern Blooms, Vintage Labels (SAB), Sweet Serenity (wheel)
Other - Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Scallop Trim Border Punch (SAB), Stampin' Pastels, Ribbon (non-SU!)

Marker Club

Have you been drooling over the set of Many Marvelous Markers (#105541)?  Is that $179.95 price tag a bit much to you all at once?  What if you had the opportunity to spread it out - kind of like a payment plan?  Well, now you do!

Buying the complete set with all 48 markers has many advantages:
- you save $3.85 extra from when you buy the 4 family 12-packs, and you save a CRAZY $36.05 from buying each one individually!
- you get a handy case that stores the markers horizontally, which is how they are supposed to be stored - they are double-tipped, and in order for one tip not to dry out, they need to be horizontal.  *YOU CANNOT GET THE CASE ANY OTHER WAY - YOU CAN'T BUY IT SEPARATELY.*
- and let's not forget you get ALL the colours in our families for doodling, journaling, colouring, stamp-colouring (more on that technique later!), and whatever else you put your mind to!

I'm setting up a Marker Club to help you get those markers, with those advantages, but at a more palatable price tag!  You still end up paying the same, but you get many more benefits doing it as part of a club.  There are only a few spots left, so give me a call, or send me an email if you want one!

Here's how it works:
- 5 spots, for 5 months.
- products you get across the 5 months:
          --> Many Marvelous Markers (#105541) -- 179.95
          --> Neutrals Stampin' Write Markers (#109126) -- 15.95
          --> In Colour Stampin' Write Markers (#116329) -- 25.95
          --> Hostess Benefits -- $20 free merchandise of your choice, and a Level 1 hostess set! :)
- Cost is $54.66 per month per spot.

We'll be getting together, at my stampin' space, and have "free time"... we'll work on projects you want to - if you want to bring something you're working on, great... if you want to request a specific technique or project, we can do that too. 

I only have TWO spots left, so grab yours now!

Another way to enter...

Since this is a brand-spankin' new blog... I thought it'd be a good way to get followers by giving folks an extra entry into the draw by following this blog.

"Ok Dinnae, so I'm game, how do I "follow" your blog???"

In the right hand column, there is a box that has the title "Followers", along with a button that says "follow."  Click on that, and follow the steps you need to in order to complete the process.  If you already have a google account, it'll be easy-peasy!  And even if you don't, it's not that tough using other services.

Workshop of a Lifetime!!! WOW!

Imagine going to a Stampin' Up! workshop...

...doing a Make-And-Take (or two!)...

...seeing a couple of "WOW" projects demonstrated that are easy to do...

...checking out the latest products in Stampin' Up!'s 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue...

...having fun with a bunch of like-minded, crafty, scrappy, stampy ladies.


Imagine that the workshop was demonstrated by the CEO & Founder of Stampin' Up!, Shelli Gardner!

How Cool is this...

That my FIRST post on my new blog (my all Stampin' Up! blog, I might add), is to tell the whole wide world that I won a Stampin' Up! recruiting challenge!??!!?

I have been ITCHING, literally ITCHING, to tell everyone and their dog that I won this challenge... that I am one of 24 very lucky Demonstrators who will be having the CEO and CoFounder of Stampin' Up! Shelli Gardner come to MY TOWN, and put on a workshop WITH ME.  

I found out on Thursday... well, let me rephrase that.  I'd been basically on pins and needles since the end of the competition period (31 Jan) to see if I'd qualified.  But, it said on the site that they'd notify demos on the 5th, and post winners on the 9th.  I got a call from SU! on the 3rd, but when I called back, the guy who called had already gone home, and they had no notes on my file as to what he was calling about.  :P  GRRRR.  LOL  I KNEW it had to do with the challenge, but I wasn't 100%... ack, more waiting!!!!

I called Lynden back at 6.45am PST (my time) on the morning of the 4th (Thursday) which was about 15 minutes after he got into the office.  And guess what he told me????  Yep, that I'd won one of the 3 spots in my category - one of only FOUR in Canada.  SWEEEEEEET!!!!!!  Okay, but I was still half-asleep, I'd just woken up, and so I didn't freak out like I would normally have... I just was really stoked.  :P

Seriously though.

I'm so excited that I earned this challenge, because I've never really done anything like that before.  I'm excited at the prospect of ongoing business as a result, I'm SUPER excited at the prospect of seeing Shelli in action (oh, so wicked!), and I'm so proud of the fact that it wasn't that I was pushy and "selling" the Starter Kit... it was (as was told to me by one of my "new team," JM) that it's my genuine excitement for the Stampin' Up! products that is contagious... and thus why "my" products sell themselves.  Hee hee... yay!
I'm having a Valentine's Card Class this Thursday, here at the new abode, the new SPACE.  :D  *BTW: This new space is going to be painted now... LOL*

Please head over to my Stampin' Up! Demo site to get the details on the class:

Much love,
D. :)
