Earn Free Hostess Merchandise

Dear Stampers,

I wanted to let you know that I am placing a last minute before Christmas stampin' order Tuesday evening.

*Is there anything that you meant to order for yourself or someone else?
*Did you hint to your family about wanting stampin' stuff, but have a feeling that they didn't call me?
*Did you forget something for that project you have been working on? Well, here you go!

This is your last chance before Christmas to place your order and have it arrive on time. How? I plan to place the order with Express 2 day delivery, which is extra. However, if I can wrangle up TEN or more orders before tomorrow night, then we could split the Express Shipping cost at only $2 extra per person! Wow! That Express Shipping is deal is unheard of, and you could get your order by Friday at the latest!

Also, I plan to give away all the HOSTESS BENEFITS! For every $20 spent, you will get your name placed in the drawing! With the possibility of free merchandise AND at least a Level One Hostess Set, how can you resist!?
  • So, replenish your cardstock;
  • Purchase those Stampin' Write Markers you have been wanting;
  • Stock up on SNAIL ink refills, brads or ribbon;
  • Or, buy that stamp set for your best friend!
Whatever you decide, please email or call in your order by 9pm Tuesday night [12/14].  PLEASE DO NOT PLACE AN ONLINE ORDER...this time.  :-)
NOTE: If you want me to call or email a friend or relative to prompt an order, please provide me with their name and contact information. I am happy to help them with Christmas shopping! However, please also provide me with a Wish List [see attached], so I can lead them in the right direction for you.
I look forward to hearing from you and Merry Christmas!
Happy Stamping,

Acetate Ornament Punch Card -- Again, I cased this one from somewhere online. So sorry to the original artist to not give you due credit. Another favorite of the SAS attendees. LOVE IT!

And more...

Christmas Cards

So, at Christmastime I have the toughest time deciding on what I want to do for my Christmas cards.  I make endless samples for myself, my customers, workshops and classes.  I use them in my Big Christmas Stamp-A-Stack.  I cut endless cards for other people, but when it comes down to it, I CAN NEVER DECIDE!!!  I am currently at that place again this year.  I are saying "Seriously, Julie, THIS is what you are worried about?"  Well, no not really, but as you know stamping is a passion that I have!  I just want to get it right.  Oh, and then there is getting the a-okay sign from my husband.  Hahaha!

Here are some of the latest samples:

Tree Trimming Card -- I did this one at Convention in August!  It was a favorite of all of my SAS attendees!  Isn't is so simple and beautiful?

Make Merry Wreath Card -- This was one of the Make & Takes at the Portland, Maine Regionals in October.  I love the non-traditional Certainly Celery as the green with the hint of Real Red popped off the wreath and in the ribbon.   LOVE IT!

So, as you can see, there is much to choose from, and those are just a few of my samples!  Enjoy!
