Black Friday! Ink-redible!

It’s been sooo long since I posted (I know, I’m lousy) and there is so much going on at Stampin’ Up! ® right now I just don’t know where to begin!  How about with an amazing sale starting tomorrow!!!

Stampin’ Up!’s Online Extravaganza is our biggest online sale of the year!  It’s kind of our 10 day Black Friday event!  Starting Monday, November 19th and running through Wednesday, November 28th you’re going to get some amazing discounts, up to 50% on some of your favorite, and most wanted, products!  Plus there are some really cool product bundles offered with great discounts!  AND on Monday the 19th and Wednesday the 28th, there will be awesome 24 hour DOORBUSTERS that you don’t want to miss!  I promise, these are things I know my customers want because I’ve heard you say it!  Now, even though it’s the “Online Extravaganza” you can get the discounts with a workshop or order direct through me if you’d prefer that rather than online.  There is no minimum purchase required but make sure that if you want one of the product bundles you use the bundle item number so that you get your discount, and of course you can always add non-discounted items to your order as well.  Here’s a sneak peek at the discount flyer so that you can make your list and check it twice!

Next up is a great new product Stampin’ Up! is trying out…

This is the Sizzix Texture Boutique Embossing Machine, isn’t it cute?  The Texture Boutique works with the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders on regular cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum to emboss and texturize your medium into an amazing work of art on your paper craft!  It only embosses, no die cutting with this machine.  If you’re looking to create that wonderful embossed look you see on cards, and that we’ve made in so many classes, this is a great machine for you!   Here’s a video of this cutie in action…

This is a product test for Stampin’ Up! and we have limited quantities so you want to act fast!  There are two great ways you can purchase your Texture Boutique machine.  You can purchase the machine itself, which includes a pair of Standard Embossing Pads and 1 Mylar Shim (132657) for $29.95 OR the Bundle (132657) for $39.95, which includes everything above plus the Flower Garden and Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, both of which are exclusive to Stampin’ Up!  Christmas is just around the corner, what a great gift right?

Here’s another nifty product Stampin’ Up! has just started carrying, Talking Tag… 

This is a message label that you attach to your cards, gifts, invitations, or just about anything you can imagine.  Use it to personalize gifts or you can even record quick instructions for projects you might be giving someone.  You buy these nifty little doo-dads by the sheet, 10 tags for $7.95 (item # 129723).  To use them you will need to download the Free App on your smartphone, adhere the message tag to your card or gift, open the app, scan the code, record your message and you’re done!  You can record up to 60 seconds of talking, singing, or whatever message you like on each label.  To play the message the recipient will need to download the app and scan the code.  Know what else is cool?  The message is saved for two years, so they can listen as much as they like!  Here’s a video and a bit more info.

Here’s something spiffy, and free…

Stampin’ Up! has created a new card-making app for the iPhone, “Simply Sent”!  You can create an e-card from a template or make an original creation, then e-mail, text it, or post it on facebook!  Did I mention it’s free at iTunes?  Yup!  Be aware though, this is not My Digital Studio gone mobile.  It’s a fun way that you can share your mobile pictures or just send a message to someone to let them know you care!  Here’s a spiffy little image I created Saturday after our Turkey Trot at church.  

Cute right?  You can download Simply Sent for your iPhone at the iTunes store here.  The app is only available on the iPhone for now, but hopefully will be available on Android soon (just no date yet).

Finally, I want to tell you about a promotion that goes right along with the sales and items above (well except the free app).  We have an “Ink-redible” promotion for hostesses and new demonstrators!  What’s that you ask?

Host a workshop between now and December 16th that reaches $450 (before tax and shipping) then in addition to your regular hostess benefits of $65 in free Hostess Dollars and one half price item you will receive a FREE collection of Classic Stampin’ Pads, a $49.95 value!  You can choose from Brights, Subtles, or Regals, and guess what!  This also applies to online orders, so if you go to my online store and place a $450 order then you can get the free pads as well!  The other chance you have to receive a FREE collection of pads is to join the Stampin’ Up! family.  The starter kit is $99 and for that you get $125 of merchandise that YOU choose; it’s fully customizable.  Plus you get $65 worth of business supplies and with this special offer you’ll also get that collection of Classic Stampin’ Pads!  That means you’re getting $174.95 worth of product for $99 PLUS the business supplies!  What you do after that is up to you.  There is no obligation to ever hold workshops, you can be a demonstrator strictly for your benefit, so that you can receive the demonstrator benefits of seeing new product early, having the opportunity to purchase and use new products before they go on sale, attend conventions and events, and of course the other benefits of being a demonstrator such as the instant income on your purchases.  Perhaps you want to be a hobby demonstrator, to hold classes with just a few select friends, or maybe you want to go all out and make Stampin’ Up! your full time job!  Whatever you want to do with this is completely up to you!  Check out my website and if you have any questions let me know, I’d love to answer them and have you join my family!

I’m signing off now, so much to do before tomorrow comes.  Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving?  Just a few days until it’s Turkey day, then Christmas will be here, and then 2013!  WOW!  Have a great night everyone, and I promise… new cards coming soon!
