I thought that I would start off by saying a huge thank you to each and every one of you. A little while ago I mentioned that my goal was to promote to Gold, well last month this happened!! With last month’s customer orders and workshop orders my sales increased to reach my goal. Thank you to all of those who have hosted workshops or placed orders, I could not have done it without you.

To celebrate my promotion I would like to you all a little gift. When you place an order of $30.00 or more using the hostess code below, I will send you the Gold Metallic Thread for free! This thread is delicate and perfect to use on your cards and scrapbook pages. This offer will be valid until the end of July only and cannot be combined with any other offer.

Stampin’ Up! promotion for July – Bonus Days
This promotion is such a good one and everyone can take advantage of it. During July for every $90.00 (before shipping is added) you spend in a single order you will receive a $9.00 voucher to spend on your order during August. There is nothing special that you need to do, just place your order.
July is a great time to host a workshop – you can earn free products simply by having a workshop and both you and your guests can earn $9.00 vouchers! I have many different times available to do workshops – during the day, evening and weekends.

Stampin’ Up! Promotion – Christmas in July
Have you ever thought about getting your products a little bit cheaper and being the first to get your hands on new products? This promotion may just be the perfect one for you!
Making the decision to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator was one that I will always be grateful for. I have loved my journey with Stampin’ Up! It has been a very flexible way of earning some extra money while working around my family’s needs.  I have been fortunate enough to earn two grand vacations over the past 11 years and of course the best part earning free products!

So here are some details about this promotion. To sign up as a demonstrator it costs $169.00. For this you will be able to choose $235.00 worth of products. On top this you will also receive the Essentials Gift Pack which is worth $121.00. This gift pack includes clear blocks, grid paper, paper snips, snail adhesives, bone folder and the brand new Carols of Christmas Stamp Set. The total value of this starter kit is $356.00!

Your demonstratorship can be anything you want it to be, from a self supporting hobby to a way of earning extra income to simply getting your products at a discounted price! You do not have to do workshops or classes; you may be your own best customer!
If you would like further information please let me know, I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Retreat – 18th to 20th August
The next weekend retreat is on the 18th to 20th August. Again it is at Birmingham Park which is out at Glengarry – just a 15 minute drive away.
