Don't Miss Out on This Opportunity!

Do you just love Stampin' Up! Products?  Would you like to make a little extra money or just purchase them at a discount?  How would you like to get in on the best deal Stampin' Up has ever offered?

Stampin' Up! is on a quest to sign up 10,000 Demonstrators in 2010.  To help them reach their goal they are offering an amazing deal on the starter kits -- 50% off!  For only $87.50, you can start your own Stampin' Up! Business.  And this isn't just a mini kit like they've offered before, this is the full starter kit with more than $300 in product included.  The stamps in the regular starter kit alone are worth over $100. But it's only available for a very limited time through November 30.

The starter kit would make a great holiday gift too because Stampin' Up! attaches no strings to the kit.  You can simply buy the kit and enjoy all the fabulous products in it without ever having to place another order.  (But you will want to place an order because your first order of $150 or more in the first 45 days is 30% off.)  And if you just want to purchase the kit and not make a business out of it, I will purchase back your catalogs and other business supplies for $40 to make it an even better deal!

Of course, it is also a great business opportunity.  I run my Stampin' Up! business the way that works best for me and you can too.  Demonstrators come in all shapes and sizes and all different levels of interest.  Many join just to buy for themselves at a fabulous discount.  Some like me, run a limited business to cover the cost of having lots of fabulous craft supplies.  Others help or fully support their family on the income they earn from Stampin' Up!

You have your choice of two different starter kits:

Christmas Card (and Gift) Crank!!

Christmas will be here before we know it.  So come get a jump start on your holiday crafting by cranking out some holiday cards and gifts at one of my festive Christmas Stampin' Buffets.

I'm holding the class twice this year.  Once on Saturday, November 6 in Murray at Red Robin from 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and then again the next Saturday, November 13 at my house in Farmington, from 5:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.

You can choose to come to one or both classes if you have lots of things you want to make.  If you are coming to the class at my house, I ask that you bring a snack or dessert to share with the group.

I'm offering a special prize to the first 12 people to RSVP for the classes and give me their project orders.  RSVP deadline for the wreath and jar is Monday, November 1 so I can order the supplies. All other RSVPs must be to me by Wednesday, November 3 for Red Robin or Wednesday November 10 for my house.  Late RSVP will be subject to an extra $2 cutting fee.  RSVP to 801-557-3439 (text or call) or paulastamps@gmail.com.

And don't forget, you earn a ticket to my FABULOUS FALL GIVEAWAY to win one of two $25 gift certificates just for coming to the class.  You'll get an additional ticket for every $20 in projects you order and 2 bonus tickets if you bring someone new to my stamp classes. 

PROJECTS:  As always, you can choose which projects you want to make and how many of each.

This Holiday Wreath is made with a package of Stampin' Up's Designer Fabric from the Holiday Mini.  You will have your choice of the Deck the Halls fabric (featured on the wreath) or the Candy Cane Christmas fabric (pictured below).  The wreath is made by cutting circles out with the Big Shot and pinning them to a wreath form.  There is no sewing. Thanks to my upline Cindy Peterson for this idea.  This project will take you at least an hour to complete.  RSVP for this item in by Monday, November 1 so I can order the fabric and buttons.  Cost: $20.

I had a special request for a Christmas Jar so here it is!   You have your choice Merry Trees (shown on jar) or Jingle All the Way in Red or Olive Green vinyl and ribbon to apply to a 6.5" jar. RSVP for this project by Monday, November 1 so I can order your vinyl and get your jar.  You should be able to complete this project in about 15 minutes. Cost: $12.50

Deck the halls with this Merry Banner to hang from your mantle or wall.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but gold glass glitter really blings this up and adds to the festive feel.  I will precut all the pieces so you will just need to add the glitter and assemble which should take you about 30 minutes. Cost: $12.50

These adorable little boxes hold a great little gift inside: pocket-sized hand sanitizers. I got the idea for this from fellow demonstrator Kimberly Van Diepen.  The hand sanitizer is included and it features the glittery Candy Cane Christmas Designer Series Paper. These should go together in about 20 minutes or less. Cost: $2.50 or 3 for $7.

Another great little gift for a coworker or teacher are these Mint Bags.  They feature six peppermint patties covered with the scallop-circle punch and placed into a cute cellophane bag and tied up with a ribbon.  There will be a tag for this project too.  There are two different colors for this project: Jolly Holiday and Candy Cane Christmas.  Please let me know which you would prefer.  Time to complete is approximately 20 minutes a piece.  Cost: $2.50 or 3 for $7.

Aren't these Reindeer Ornaments so cute?  Put him on your tree, tie him to a package, or just give him away.  He's made with the Big Shot and some punches and the sweet treat holders filled with M&Ms.  Thanks to Marie Shaunessy for sharing these on Stampin' Addicts.  These will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete.  Cost: $2.00 or 3 for $5.

This Santa Hat Box is a last minute substitution.  Much cuter than the original treat box I had planned.  Also inspired by Kimberly Van Diepen. Cost: $2.00 or 3 for $5.

CHRISTMAS CARDS: $1.75 each or 12 (the same or mix and match) for $16.50.  Cards should take 15-25 minutes a piece to complete but will go faster if you are making more than one of the same card.

This Pocket Photo Card is perfect for sharing a photo of your family.  You can also add a message to the inside instead of a picture.  Your will receive a clear envelope to send this card. Check with the USPS to see if additional postage is needed. 
Dasher makes another grand appearance this year.  I love this stamp and texture the embossing folder gives the card.  The inside of the card is white and says"May the true spirit of Christmas fill your heart with peace, your home with love."

This Christmas Tree card was a favorite when I was sharing samples.  But I know some of you hate to cut out images, so you will have your choice of keeping it simple, or going for a more dramatic look by cutting the tree out.  The inside of the card says "May the joy and love you feel this holiday season extend to everyday throughout the year."

This Ornament Card is super easy to stamp punch and assemble.  It is straight out of the Holiday Mini Catalog.

It's hard to tell just how much sparkle the Snowflake card has in these pictures. And it's another quick and easy one.  Just run the embossing folder through the big shot, spritz with shimmer mist, stamp and punch and assemble.  And yes, I will help you with your bows if you need it. Please specify if you would like Pink or Blue.

Silhouette Greetings is my favorite card this year.  And again, it can be dolled up with some distressing with ink and markering the greeting or just kept more simple.  The image is heat embossed on both cards, but you could just stamp it as well. The inside of this one is stamped with a wreath and says, "Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in the conspiracy of love. -Hamilton Wright Mabie"

The Holly Card is another simple card, but this one does have some coloring on it.  And you will also have the option of heat embossing that coloring.

The inspiration for the Wiseman Card came from my very talented friend Janine Tinklenburg.  This is another very fast card to make.  The greeting on the outside says, "Oh, come let us adore Him. . ."  on the inside it says "Giving thanks for God's Gift of Love and the joy we share through Christ the Lord. Merry Christmas"

This month's Scrapbook Layout is perfect to capture your Christmas memories for this year or maybe one from the past.  There are mats for 3 pictures and a journal box.  There is glitter on this too (hard to tell in the picture again) and a lace ruffle and vintage brad. Cost: $7.50

These are just 2 samples from the several different gift tags that will be available to make at the class.  The tags are 2-1/2" by 2-3/4" and can be decorated with your choice of Jolly Holiday paper and
Tags Til Christmas Stamp Set. Cost: 4 for $1.

I will also have charm inserts for those of you who have purchased the Simply Adorned Charms.  And I will have all the older ones if you need to get caught up.  The Simply Adorned Charms make fabulous Christmas presents too.  So if you would like to order one and make a bunch of inserts for it, contact me ASAP!

Whew!  That was a lot of projects.  Now quick RSVP so you can be one of the first 12 to get your special prize.

September's Stampin' Buffet

I've missed doing my usual Stampin' Buffets this summer.  Now that school is back in session and my life is settling in to a routine, I'm excited to get back to it!  This buffet features projects for any and all occasions.  Many of the projects also feature something new.

WHEN: Saturday, September 11 from 11-4

WHERE: Red Robin in Murray. (316 E Winchester)

WHAT: A day of Stampin' Fun!  Check out the projects below and let me know which ones and how many of each you would like to make. Bring a friend new to my Stampin' Up classes and you will both receive a special treat.  And I will still be offering $5 off your class project fees with a $25 purchase from any of Stampin' Up's new catalogs. 

RSVP:  801-557-3439 or paulastamps@gmail.com by noon on Wednesday, September 8.  I need to cut for this class on Thursday so please be prompt with your RSVPs.

*PLEASE NOTE*: Due to the increased cost in materials with the new catalog, the prices for my class projects has increased slightly. Thank you in advance for understanding.  Also, I'm still having camera issues so I apologize for the poor picture quality.

This month's scrapbook layout is perfect for celebrating your sports star, graduate or anyone else who is ready to "Go Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams."  It features the new Celebrations Designer Series Paper from the Idea Book and Catalog and the new circle punch and the new Tasteful Trim Big Shot die from the Holiday Mini. Cost: $7.50

This month's treat holder was inspired by a swap I received at Stampin' Up Convention from Barbara Welch. It uses the Fancy Favor Big Shot Die and the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  And don't you just love that flower?  Once you learn this easy embellishment, you will be making them in every color to go on every project!  Cost: $2.50

BABY ONESIES: How fun are these baby cards that look like Onesies?  They look harder to create then they are.  Just a few punches and a little cutting and you have a cute card perfect for the next baby gift you give. Cost: $1.75

CHARM SCHOOL: For those of you who bought the Simply Adorned charms in the spring, these are this months charms.  The picture is horrible, sorry.  I will also have the older charms there if you would like to get caught up.  It's not to late to join Charm School either.  The Charms are $22 (including shipping and tax) and must be ordered by Monday, September 6.  When you order the charms, you can make the charm inserts for free at each of my 2010 Buffets.

All-You-Can-Stamp Buffet

Who doesn't love an all-you-can-eat buffet?  You can eat dessert first. Then sample a little salad. And maybe take three of the hot flaky rolls. And don't forget the carving station with the roast beef and turkey. And over there is the peel and eat shrimp and crab legs.  Yum!  Are you planning your next trip to Vegas yet?

While this class isn't exactly the same thing, you get the idea.  Come and make as many cards and projects as you can in three hours.  Maybe you want to make a wedding card, a birthday card or two, and don't forget you'll need a few thank you cards and some of those cute little treat holders for your neighbors.  What about that baby shower coming up?  It's will all be there, cut and ready for you to come stamp.  No need to preorder, I will keep cutting as long as you keep stamping.

WHEN: Saturday, August 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: My new house in Farmington (call or email for directions)

COST: $15

RSVP:  By Wednesday, August 4 to 801-557-3439 or paulastamps@gmail.com.  If you RSVP after this date, there will be an additional $2 cutting fee.

Bring a friend that is new to my classes and you both receive $2 off your class fee.  A light lunch will be served.   And did I mention the prizes?  Door prizes as well as prizes for the fastest and slowest stampers.  You will leave with at least 10 projects guaranteed. (If you don't complete that many, you can pick from my  premade cards.)

Here's a sneak peek of most of the cards and projects that will be available that day:

Many of the cards feature something from the brand new Idea Book and Catalog.  Come see the new catalog and take home your own copy for $5 or free with a $50 order.  And anyone who places an order at the class will receive a coupon for your next order.

My bin of retired products is over flowing again.  Come take advantage of discounted prices on discontinued stamps, paper, ink pads, etc.  I also have tons of premade cards and other class samples available to purchase.

So what are you waiting for?  RSVP right now while you are thinking about it!  And my best customers should be looking in their mail boxes for their special invitation with an equally special offer inside!  And don't let the few extra miles scare you off, I promise it will be worth the drive.

June Stampin' Buffet!

Bring on Summer!!!!  Now that the weather is finally cooperating, let's create some fun summer projects together!

WHEN: Saturday, June 12 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

WHERE: Red Robin in Murray, (316 East Winchester)

WHAT: Get ready for Father's Day and Summer Vacation.  Scroll down to see the pictures of the projects for this month and then let me know which ones and how many of each you would like to make.  Bring a friend along and you both can pick something from my prize basket.

RSVP: By noon on Thursday, June 10.  But let me know by Tuesday at noon if you would like to start Charm School this month and take the charm with you that day so I can get it ordered.

Place a catalog order at my class an receive $5 off your project fees for every $25 you spend (charms not included in this deal since I have another special offer I am running on those).  The Last Chance Lists are out.  Get your retiring products before they are all gone!

This month's scrapbook layout celebrates Dad!  I tried to keep it simple because everyone knows Dad's like it that way.  The quote says "For all you do, For all you are, For all you mean to me . . ."  Cost: $7.00 each

I had special requests for projects with the Tropical collection from the Summer Mini catalog.  This is a paper bag mini album that is perfect to scrapbook your family's trip to the beach or any fun summer time activities.  I left the cover blank on purpose, but you can add a title easily with the big shot.  There are 10 pages on the inside of the album and three pull outs.  Cost: $12 each

 This has been one of my favorite stamp sets, Enjoy Everything, and it showed up on the retiring list.  So I wanted to create something with it and share it with you one more time.  It also features Crushed Curry, one of this year's in colors that is also retiring.  Cost: $1.50 each

This card features some colors that are retiring this month as well: Mellow Moss and Cameo Coral.  The stamp set is Watercolor Trio from the Summer Mini.  There are 2 other greetings for this card as well.  Cost: $1.50 each.

This card was another special request.  It features the Punched Posies Hostess set from the Summer Mini Catalog. I love this set.  And this colorful card was a bit out of my comfort zone at first, but I love the way it pops.  So fun and summery!  It is almost the same card that is featured in the mini catalog -- I just changed up the colors a bit.  There will also be a Happy Birthday option for this card. Cost: $1.50 each.

One of my favorite things about summer is ICE CREAM!  Yummy! This fun card features the Sweet Scoops Stamp set from the mini and a little two-step stamping. Cost: $1.50 each

Father's Day is right around the corner and what Dad wouldn't like to dream of tropical beaches on his day?  This card was inspired closely by the very talented JulieA on Stampin' Addicts.  There is also a Happy Birthday or Thank You option for this card. Cost: $1.50

If your father is more like mine, he like simple and masculine.  This card offers that. It also features retiring Designer Series Paper and corduroy buttons.   Cost: $1.50 each.
The 3D item for this month is a gift bag adorned with the very cute Build A Bear Big Shot line.  There is a gift tag for this that isn't shown.  Also, you can make a boy bear instead of a girl bear.  Cost: $2.00 each.

Charm School is in session!  If you missed out last month, it is not too late to get in on the fun.  Simply purchase a Simply Adorned Charm from me and you can make 2-3 charms for free at the rest of my 2010 buffets!  These are designed to fit the 1x1 1/4 inch charms.  Cost for the charm is $22 (includes shipping and tax) or include a 24" chain for $35 (includes shipping and tax).   I had a special request for the umbrella drink charm and a skull charm. (Yes, I know it isn't Halloween, but this paper is retiring and I had to use it.)

Hope to see you there!
