Good Bye Winter (SAB), Hello Spring!

Time to say good bye to Sale-A-Bration 2015

As I am looking at all the nice stamp sets, the fantastic embossed specialty  paper (my favorite!), the many accessories and of course all the beautiful samples and creations we all made during the past three month using free product we earned, I am proud and so very pleased. 
Thanks to you, my loyal customers, I could not have done this without you. You asking me to show product and ideas, you attending my workshops, you signing up for my classes, you all push me to get better, more creative and you certainly help my business. For all this I am so grateful!

A new season will begin tomorrow, it is spring time in Canada - although it does not feel like that everywhere, sorry Maritimers ...  I have already posted my event schedule for the next three months. Check it out and let me know if you have questions, or maybe you'd like me do hold a private class or workshop for you and your friends.

Lots of Tuesday news today

Tuesday is the big day for updates, new WEEKLY DEALS on my Page, fresh info coming from Stampin' Up! Headquarters, and today we got the following:

1) Effective 31 May 2015 Stampin' Up! is completely pulling out of the Hispanic Market. No more stamp sets, no more Spanish translations and support, no Spanish flyers or catalogues. I am sorry to see this happen.
2) On 31 May 2015 they are also discontinuing MDS, My Digital Studio. No more downloads, updates, print services, tech support and Mydigitalstudio.net, it will all be gone.  Downloads will still be working with other programs, I am waiting to see what all the computer whizzes are coming up with. I for my part enjoyed some of the features of the program, although it sure does not surprise me that it did not sell well enough to stay around.
3) I am repeating the "old" news about our Blendabilities markers. This product line has been taken off the shelf completely while SU is working on a fix to quality problems. We all hope to see alcohol based markers back, but as for right now, no idea when this might happen.
4)WEEKLY DEALS - this weeks is all about ribbon and Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.
Have a look, maybe you will find your deal HERE

I am spending my day in my little studio, designing cards and projects for my upcoming workshops and classes. Check my Events Page for details, I hope to see you soon. Let me know if you can't make it to my events, I will do my best to link up with you at a time that might suit you better.

Thanks for the invite!

Monday evening I was so happy to be able to attend a workshop/class with Gabi Rieser, Austrian Stampin' Up! demonstrator from Kirchberg in Tirol.
The event was held in Hopfgarten/Tirol, there were 6 of us in attendance, and it was so nice to see how SU's "Going Global" is working ... everyone was very serious about the tasks given, they all stamped their hearts out, and thanks to Gabi's great ideas, we all walked away with card sets in a handmade box and a cute little gift package.
Congratulations to your successful workshop Gabi, you did GREAT!

All samples shown were made by the beginner in this group. Very nice work!

“Everyone Wins” Workshop by Stampin’ with Christine

It’s on - $525$ Sale-A-Bration Workshop

You can be part of this from March 4 to March 14

Everyone who participates will be a hostess

I am having a $525 Catalogue Workshop to give everyone a chance to participate in the benefits of being a Stampin’ Up! hostess, but instead of submitting a $200 order, you only put in a $105 order, before shipping and tax) 

For every $105 order you put in (and you can put in multiple orders), you will receive either a half price item OR $30 in Host Dollars, AND 1 FREE item from Sale-A-Bration 2015.

What does that mean to you?  Normally you have to purchase $200 in order to receive $30 in free host product. BUT – I will combine these orders to get to $525 and EVERYONE will be a hostess. Everyone will receive either $30 in product OR one 1/2 price item plus 1 item of your choice from the current Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  You can submit as many $105 orders as you like! 

How it works:
  1. First you e-mail me at alwardc@kingston.net to let me know you are participating 
  2. Using the current Hostess Code HHGAX6CT you will place your order online on my website.  The advantage is that you can have your order delivered directly to your home. 
    One click takes you to my My Online-Shop
  3. When you are done with your order, send me another email and give me your choice of hostess item(s) valued at $30 or name the item you would like at 50% off.  If your list slightly exceeds the $30 or half-price mark, you just pay the difference plus S/T.  I will let you know how much that would be. 
  4. It is on a first come first serve basis, so get your orders in ASAP so you have first choice of the two options. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO GET THE HOSTESS SETS found on pages 236 to 240 of the Annual Catalogue or on page 51 of the current Occasions Catalogue.
  5. On March 14th I will close the workshop related to this current hostess code and I will send your Host Benefits to you as soon as I have all items in hand. 
Beware: All Blendabilities alcohol based markers have been taken off the shelf, you cannot order any of these items right now.  I will let you know once the issue has been resolved. 
Thank you so much for stopping by and for considering this deal.
