Two NEW cards for Father's Day and Birthday

 

Today I am sharing two totally different stamp sets and styles. Variety is the spice of life ... and stamping!

This flower card features In Bloom. Instructions in a Word format are linked to HERE and for a PDF, click HERE.
This masculine card features Handsomely Suited. Easy to use this for a special guy's birthday with a quick change in the sentiment. Or use girly paper for Mother's Day? Instructions in a Word format are linked to HERE and for a PDF, click HERE.
To get the annual catalog automatically shipped to you in the second half of April (it will begin May 4) simply place ANY sized order in my store. Everyone who has ordered since January 1, 2021 will get one free! Between the catalog price I pay plus shipping, it's about a $12 value.

Haven't ordered in a while? There's plenty of time! I'll start reviewing my order history in mid-April to create my mailing list.

If you are unable to order, or not planning to order, I'll be happy to send a PayPal invoice to cover my costs. We'll talk about this in about a month.

Place an order or, better yet, join my group 
HERE and get your catalog early and be able to order out of it early! I will be able to preorder out of it in April. You can too if you join before then!
Hello - I am itemizing some things to know that you may want more info about with a link to where you can find that added info.
 
1. The March "Here's to You" Paper Pumpkin kit subscription window ends TODAY. Paper Pumpkin is our #1 product and you can easily sign up using the link on the right --------->

2.  The NEW Butterfly Bouquet early release is open now through May 3. Two items will be in the next big catalog and two will not. See the details in the flyer showing all the products HERE.

The earth laughs in flowers ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

It's a floral kind of day! This post is kind of long but has GREAT information and DEALS!!!! This week's two cards feature two new stamp sets, out of the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog: Hydrangea Haven (page 20) and Pretty Perennials (page 31). 

Note that when you buy the stamp set with coordinating punch or dies (as applicable), as a set/bundle, you save 10%. Both of these stamp sets are parts of bundles. You can, of course, buy the stamp set and dies/punches separately.

The recipe, measurements, and instructions for Hydrangea Haven are found in a PDF HERE or in a Word document HERE.

This card features Pretty Perennials (page 31 of the January to June 2021 Mini Catalog).

The recipe, measurements, and instructions are found in a PDF HERE or in a Word document HERE.

A quick reminder that $150 is the "sweet spot" where you begin to earn Stampin' Rewards dollars to spend on whatever you want including three items that only Stampin' Rewards dollars can buy (pg. 187 of the main catalog or page 88 of the new mini catalog). That is in addition to the free product you choose for every $50 in orders during Sale-A-Bration.

Every online order of $150 or more qualifies. On the pages referenced above, ignore the word "host" as this is for anyone who submits a $150+ order. No parties; it's just the order total that triggers the gifts from Stampin' Up!

And if you ordering $150 by yourself is not doable, you can always ask me for a host code and when your friends order with the code, they link to your main order and you earn the Stampin' Rewards freebies once all orders together reach at least $150.
A timeline of what is happening now:
  1. Our biggest sale of the year, Sale-A-Bration, runs now through February 28 (this is a change - it used to end in March - also there will not be any additional freebies options added as in past years as this promotion window is that much shorter). In a nutshell, during this period, we get more free, with our orders, than at any other time. 
  2. Our January to June 2021 Mini Catalog went live January 5. It focuses on Valentine's, spring, children, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc... If you do not have your catalog and plan to order, send me an email requesting one at margiescrafts@gmail.com
  3. "Bouquet of Hope" February Paper Pumpkin subscription period open now through February 10. Two ways to subscribe. See separate section below.
  4. Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine finally available January 5 after pandemic-related delays. Yes, if your order is $450+, you may choose it as your half-off item.
  5. Whisper White products have been replaced with Basic White due to the unfortunate closure of our original supplier. Also pandemic-related.
Sale-A-Bration has THREE parts, is valid January and February only, and is our BIGGEST annual promotion:
  1. Shop
  2. Super shopper
  3. Free $57.50 gift with Starter Kit (if you have the new catalog and you could see spending $99, this is THE much better way to go)
  4. Now through February 28 (this is a new, shorter deadline)
I went into detail with supplemental tips and tricks in a prior newsletter you may link to HERE. I invite you to read it as it's ALL about saving $!
This is a short (just over 2 minutes) video produced by the company to show you what Sale-A-Bration is about. Please disregard the use of the word "party" to trigger getting the Punch Party stamp set. Every online order of $300 qualifies. Please ask me questions!
FYI: Paper Pumpkin is our #1 selling product!

February’s Paper Pumpkin kit—Bouquet of Hope—provides a way to offer comfort, care, and condolences to those enduring life’s challenges. With beautiful blooms and supportive sentiments, the Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin Kit will soothe sorrow and share sympathy in a heartfelt, handmade way.

3. BONUS: Buy a Starter/Try-It Kit in June and add any stamp set/dies or stamp set/punch bundle FREE. Value up to about $60. The whole package is worth up to $227 and is as follows: choose $125.00 of any product you want, add any bundle and the highest is $60.25, a $22 Paper Pumpkin gets added automatically, it ships free which would save you about $20 if you were buying all this as a regular order...that totals up to $227 but you pay $99 plus tax. So far, 15 have joined since June 3! This is the BEST value especially at new catalog time when your wish list is likely more than $99 long. NO parties, no strings, no risk.

4. ANOTHER BONUS: Any order, in my online store, that reaches $150 qualifies for freebies gifts from Stampin' Up! They are dollars to spend on additional product of your choice (see page 187 of the catalog). For June, when your order is at least $250 add $25 MORE in freebies to whatever you already qualify for. In other words, on a $250 order, you'd earn $50 more of anything you want. On a $300 order, you earn a total of $61 additional free and so on. Get those extra freebies HERE.

Questions ALWAYS welcome and none are ever "dumb"! Seriously I thrive on chatting about Stampin' Up! Simply hit "reply" to this email and ask!
