Great News from Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! shared four pieces of great news with us today.  I wanted to make sure you knew about them.  Each has its own specific timeline which I have bolded for you in the descriptions below.  In order of the dates for each event . . .

1)  Stamps on Clearance rack

Tomorrow, June 26, at 12:01 AM (MT), for the first time ever, Stampin' Up! is putting stamp sets on the Clearance Rack! This is not something they have done in the past—and I don’t know it will happen again.  Stampin' Up has provided a list, but no pictures :)   The easiest way to see the great deals is to click Shop Now on my blog:  www.scrappinwithjoni.com   These stamps sets will not show up on the Clearance rack until Tomorrow, June 26, at 12:01 AM (MT), that is 1AM Central Time.  You can place an order when you click the Shop Now button.  If you prefer to email me your order I would be happy to place your order, but please know I don't know what time I will be home tomorrow so by the time I check email, some stamps may be gone..  These are stamp sets that are retired, this is the list.

2) Trimmer Blades are back while supplies last.

Stampin' Up has received a shipment of Stampin’ Trimmer Cutting Blades (item 126995), and this item will become available on June 27, at 10:00 AM (MT).  Individual customer orders will be liminted to 3 sets per customer.   It is expected these blades will sell out. I will be placing an order for 3 sets of blades for myself on Thursday, if you would like me to order blades for you please let know by 10:30 AM on Thursday.

3) Bonus Days are coming back

Good news: Bonus Days is coming back next week, and that means you can start earning coupon codes to redeem in August!  Here’s how it works: For every $50 you spend July 1–31 (before shipping and tax), earn a $5 Bonus Days coupon code that can be redeemed August 1–31.

4) Extra Extra special offer to join Stampin' Up!

If you have thought about joining my Stampin' Up! team because you love a good deal on great product or because you are interested in seeing what you could do as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (both are good reasons to join Stampin' Up)  now is the time to seriously consider it.   From July 1 until August 31, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30 to put toward bonus products in their Starter Kit. THEN, they’ll receive a $10 coupon code the following month.  I will have more information in my Sunday email, but wanted to give you a chance to think about it. 

As always if you have any questions, just ask.  I hope you get some time to create this week.    ~Joni

Stitched Lace in Petal Pink

Stitched_lace_in_petal_pink

Sometime simple is best. When you have die that makes this pretty lace, all you need is a touch of ribbon. It doesn't even need a sentiment on the front, that way you can use this card for whatever occasion arrives.

Bookmarks

Bookmarks

I got to do an activity with children at a local library this week. What fun! We made 3 different bookmarks. These bookmarks make great use of scraps of paper and ribbon. I listed the materials I used for these bookmarks. You could use any papers and ribbons you have on hand. I would recommend the multipurpose glue if you are doing this project with children. The glue is easy to apply and it gives you a minute to get the paper in place before it dries.

Perennial Essence Scalloped Note Cards

Perenial_essence_scallop_notecards

At my Open House this weekend, these pretty note cards were one of the Make N Take projects. The base is one of the new Scalloped Note Cards in the Annual Catalog. The envelopes match in color and scallop. Add a band of pretty Perennial Essence paper and you have a card you could use for so many occasions.
