New Paper Trimmer & Family Fun

In case you haven't heard, IT'S HERE!!   Check out the video below to view all the cool bonus features on Stampin' Up!'s new Paper Trimmer. To order your very own for only $29.95, click on the 'shop now' button on the right and type in the item number 126889.  I actually have one in my hands!  I haven't had a chance to play with it much, since I'm still studying for my PRAXIS test that I will be taking December 18th...  I'm hoping to take a little crafting break this weekend to work on some digital calendars and some Christmas cards.  I promise to post anything that I create!!!  I can't wait to try this out!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving!  We headed to Boise and enjoyed a fabulous weekend with the family!  Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving at my Mom and Dad's house,  our annual Festival of Trees trip and our Family Crafting Day aka Girls Day.  I was sad because everyone was making these cute cards, tags and ornaments while I was studying... Next year!!!  Plus, I can't wait to receive some of their projects on Christmas.  :)

Grandma Barbara had a lot of fun making her cards today. 
Thanks again, Mom, for creating the fabulous card kits for her!!

My mom, Cris, made the cutest tags!! 
Some were really big, so we were joking about the size of the presents she must be giving us.  :) 

I had to include a picture of me on Family Crafting Day...
I really wish I would have crafted instead of studied, but I'm sure I'll be thankful Dec. 18th.

We had to include the rest of the girls during our fun Girls Day.

My cousin, Shawna was so excited to be included this year! 
She played Angry Birds on her mom's ipad and napped. 
I'm kind of jealous!

Earn a FREE set of Stampin' Up! Ink Pads in the Color Family you Choose!!

Wow!  I thought October had a great special, but check out November's promotion!
Here are the details: 
Dates: November 1 - December 16, 2012

Hostesses who hold a minimum $450 party during the promotion period will receive a FREE collection of Classic Stampin Pads-they can choose from Brights, Subtles, or Regals-a $49.95 value! Plus, the free ink is in addition to the regular hostess benefits-INK-redible!
  • Customer, demonstrator, workshop, and online orders from my Online Store qualify for this promotion.
    • While in the past, online orders have not counted toward hostess promotions, we're excited to unveil a trial program that will allow your online customers to take advantage of our current hostess promotion with a qualifying order.
    • Customers will be prompted to select their qualifying ink collection with a $450 order. They will be required to use one of the following item numbers in order to select their free ink collection.
      • 132652 Brights Classic Stampin' Pads
      • 132653 Subtles Classic Stampin' Pads
      • 132654 Regals Classic Stampin' Pads
    • Note: This only applies to orders placed through an Online Store.
  • To get free ink, the order total must be at least $450 before tax and shipping.
  • This special offer isn't incremental. That means if you place a $900 order, we'll be excited for sure-but you won't get two free ink collections. But really, isn't one free collection of ink incentive enough?
  • Hostesses can still use their additional hostess dollars to get free products from the current annual and seasonal catalogs.  ($65 worth of your choice of items and one item at 50% off!)
  • You can get two free ink collections when you participate in both of our INK-redible promotions

  • New demonstrators who join the Stampin' Up! family during the promotion period will receive a FREE collection of Classic Stampin Pads-they can choose from Brights, Subtles, or Regals! It's INK-redible!
    • Even with this great offer on the table, new demonstrators who join Stampin' Up! during the promotion period are still eligible for other programs available to new recruits, like the Extra 10% Instant Income offer on their first order, and Stampin' Start. Awesome!
