Hello dumplings and I hope you’re having a terrific Thursday. Personally Miss Hammie gets a chill when the temperature drops below 70 degrees, so rain and temperatures in the 60’s have me less than elated. However the news flash has nothing to do with Miss Hammie’s thin blood and less than hardy constitution. It’s about the favorite word of all shoppers be they crafters or not. That’s right dumplings I’m talking about the word we all love SALE !!!
As you know 2017 is barreling towards its finish line and 2018 is right around the corner. Oh my, Miss Hammie just had a scary thought that she’ll share during this week’s sister catch up conversation over dinner. Whoa did I ever veer out of my intended conversation. Not to worry I’m back on track, sale, that’s where I was.
As 2017 comes to an end Stampin’ Up is having an awesome sale that begins tomorrow December 1st that will run thru January 2nd. It’s a sale of select items that will be available only while supplies last. The items that will be available will be announced on the Stampin’ Up website tomorrow. Miss Hammie definitely plans to check this out. Here’s some advice, you know that holiday bundle or Designer Series Paper you wanted for your holiday cards that you didn’t get because it was a tad out of budget? It just might be part of this sale, but you need to remember 1. That Miss Hammie said might, I truly don’t know what items are going on sale and 2. That Miss Hammie said while supplies last. If you liked it, but didn’t get it someone else probably did too. Don’t miss out on something you really want. There could also be things that you bought, used and loved that might be retiring, like embellishments for example. You might want to stock up on a certain type of washi tape or charm. Just check the list and don’t miss out. Finally, on this topic anyway, don’t forget to use the hostess code if you’re placing an order under $150.00. The hostess code is FV6MXXK9.
Moving right along Miss Hammie was telling you dumplings about a great new tool from Stampin’ Up called the Stamparatus a short while ago. The Stamparatus is a stamping positioning tool that’s, in my humble opinion, a cut above other tools like it. The Stamparatus is a brand new product, so new in fact that you have to reserve it. During the first reservation period the expected supply of this product sold out in under 30 minutes ( more like 15 minutes truthfully). Miss Hammie was in the middle of the process when they sold out. The reason that I’m telling you this is that the next reservation period is on Tuesday December 5th at 2:00PM MT, that’s 4:00PM EST, 3:00PM CST and I believe 1:00PM PST (don’t quote me on Central or Pacific) . The Stamparatus is amazing and a bargain at $49.00. If you reserve one on Tuesday you can expect delivery and to be charged in March 2018. Other reservation windows are scheduled and I will post them.
One other point that Miss Hammie wanted to share. Two new things are coming your way very soon. If you’re at all familiar with Stampin’ Up you’re also familiar with our 1. Occasions catalog and 2. Sale-a-Bration. I’m sorry about the 1 and 2 things perhaps it’s an indication of how long Miss Hammie taught school, who knows. Anyway the Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration go live on January 3.
Miss Hammie has seen the catalog and the SAB brochure. The new products are ah-mazing and one suite can only be described as scrumptious! I know what you’re thinking, you’re thinking “Miss Hammie why are you telling me this I won’t even see a catalog until next year?”. Get serious dumplings first it basically next month rather than next year, besides would I dangle a carrot like that? No, of course not. I always have a reason and it’s never just to make you drool. Stampin’ Up demonstrators, like Miss Hammie, can start to pre-order from the Occasions catalog and earning Sale-a-Bration goodies starting tomorrow. Now you’re saying “But what does that have to do with me Miss Hammie?”, well I’ll tell you. If you join my team, you could get in on the pre-order and earn Sale-a-Bration goodies too. Interested? Just let me know and we’ll get the ball rolling. Wait, did I remember to tell you about the $125.00 worth of products that you choose and only pay $99.00 for and the 20% discount you get? Doesn’t matter, I just did. Miss Hammie knows, “But Miss Hammie, I’m a horrible sales person”. Doesn’t matter, over 95% of all Stampin’ Up demonstrators are what we call “Hobby demonstrators “ or in layman’s terms, their own best customer. If you stagger your orders you’ll more than meet the quarterly minimum. Get in touch and we’ll talk about it. So, don’t forget the Year-End Sale, the Stamparatus Reservation Window, the upcoming new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration, think about joining up because I would love to have you on my team. I’ll see you with another Smitten Mittens project tomorrow so TTFN
