thank-you-long-flowerFirst of all Thank You for all of your support.  Next I need your help.  I’m doing a challenge right now and I need at least one in home party booked for 6 weeks starting January 19th.  This is a perfect time to have a party because the new catalog starts the 19th and sale-a-bration starts February 1st. 

So here’s the deal.  I have a special prize basket reserved for the first person to book during each of those weeks.  I will bring the prize basket to your party so the earlier you book the more selection you will have.  Now these are really good prizes including current merchandise from the catalog.  I know sale-a-brations is the big pick so I will also through in $15.00 in FREE product for parties booked in January.

I will also have a second prize basket for anyone who books their party on one of my open party dates.  You can click here to see my available dates.

Now booking is really easy.  Just e-mail me with the date that you want and the time.  I’m happy to do parties during the day for those stay at home mom’s.  If the date you want is blank e-mail me and I’ll let you know if it’s available.  I will send you an e-mail confirmation once I have you on my calendar.  Then e-mail me your guest list and I will send out all off the invitations for you.

Plus I will mail or deliver each of you the new Spring/Summer idea book and catalog as soon as I get home from Florida.

Bonus Gift-  I have a bonus gift for anyone who books their party by Monday.  I leave for Stampin’ Up! Leadership in Florida on Tuesday. 

Thanks again and I look forward partying with you.

Swapping Saturday 1-3-09

I have to show the pirate set one more time before it’s retired.  I received this card at Regional’s I think two years ago and I still love it.  I love how it opens up to revile the whole message.  It was created by Christy Christiansen from St. George Utah.  I will have to say that this is still one of my favorite swaps. 

s-pirate-card-closedShe used a 3×6 sheet for the back ground so it fits in our open ended envelops and then she used a sheet of 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 for the card.  She scored it at 2 3/4 for the bottom and middle section then tore the top edge so that when it fold over it is just slightly smaller. 

s-pirate-card-partial-openShe punched a whole in the top layer for the Ahoy Matey and then placed the layered words on the middle layer. 

s-pirate-card-openWhen you open it all the way you can see the message inside.  I believe it was the retired birthday set from the old catalog, but you could use almost any set.

Be sure to order your pirate set and wheel before they are gone for good.  You can find it on the dormant list or on page 75 of the Spring/Summer ’08 Catalog.  The stamp set Ahoy, Matey is #107027 for $23.95 and the Jumbo Wheel Matey’s Map is #107212 for $8.50.  Click here to start placing your on-line order.
