Hello stampers and happy Friday to you. Today I am sharing with you a Little Ladybug explosion box card. At least that is what I think it is called. Nevertheless, it is a super cute card that will bring a smile to your face. Perhaps I will do a video on this card on Tuesday. Who knows?
Little Ladybug card
I’m not sure you could call this a card, but it does fold flat and fit into an envelope. Well, that’s not exactly true. It won’t fit into a standard envelope, but if you make your own, then it definitely will, especially if you are lucky enough to own the envelope punch board.
So Sentimental Bundle
I thought I would put this in bold because it is important! The pretty stitched scalloped rectangle dies come from the So Sentimental bundle which is on low inventory right now. That means if you want it, don’t delay in ordering it! If you do order online, please do use the current host code: QHANZJSC
Close-ups of the Little Ladybug card
It’s always nice when you can get a closeup view of all the lovely details on a card. I loved colouring the ladybugs and the flower with Blends. The colours just pop and the ladybugs are so super cute and cheerful. The only way to get this stamp set is by having a $375 workshop. How are you going to do that with this COVID-19 stuff happening? Simple. Talk to four friends and get them to get a three month prepaid Paper Pumpkin subscription. You do it too, and then you will all get a free saleabration item and you as the host will also get the Little Ladybug stamp set and $45 in host benefits. Pretty fantastic!
Do you see the cute hearts? They come from the Stitched Be Mine dies and the Meant to Be stamp set in the annual catalog. Here is a blog post with more cards made with the Meant to Be stamp set. I hope to do a video soon to show you how to make this fun explosion box card, it really isn’t that difficult and it is fun to make and give away.
Free Stamp Set If You Order Today
I am very, very close to a sales milestone and to help it happen more quickly I am trying to inspire you to order online from me today. If you order any of the products in this blog post, or the Looking Up Card kit from my video today I will send you a free stamp set. You can see the selection in my video which you can see here if you like. Once again, here is the host code that you can use when you place your online order: QHANZJSC
If you don’t live in Canada and you still want a free stamp from me, all you need to do is order two pdf tutorials from me and I will send you a stamp set. If you are not in North America, then it will be a Paper Pumpkin photopolymer set as they are cheaper to mail and are probably more meaningful to you since you can’t get them otherwise.
Hello stampers and happy Thursday! I am getting ready for saleabration a little bit earlier than usual this year. Do you know why? It is super important to me for everyone to realize the opportunities that are there to get more free stuff and to save more money AND have more fun. That’s quite the winning combination don’t you think?
What I want you to know
The reason that I am so passionate about the starter kit, especially during saleabration is that I think a lot of people are missing out because of misconceptions. Heck, I missed out for a lot of years. I had no idea that I could take advantage of the great deal on the starter kit and NOT be a demonstrator. There were five little kids needing my attention and I had no time or inclination to teach anything to anyone but I did love to scrapbook and stamp. A continual discount would have been great!
You need to know that you can get the starter kit with no strings attached, just for your own discount! There will be no pressure from Stampin’Up! or from me to achieve anything or to reach certain sales goals. Regardless of how much you buy or sell, you have six months to take advantage of your own discount which will be 20%. You also get early access to new catalogs. For example as demonstrators we can already order from the new mini AND earn free saleabration sets already.
Many people ask me, what is in the starter kit? Whatever you want! Yes, that’s right. You get to decide what you want in there. It’s like placing an order but with a limit. You only get to choose $165 worth of products, you can go less but you can’t go more. That is the hard part but it doesn’t have to be. Whatever doesn’t “fit” into the starter kit can go on your next order where you will get 20% off AND you will earn free saleabration items with every $60 you spend. Once your order gets to $200 you also get host benefits even if the order is just for you. If your order gets to $375 then you also get Little Ladybug for free. Did I mention there is no tax and no shipping? Also, you only pay $135.
The saleabration bonus
This is the best part. Not only do you get an extra $30 worth of product in the kit, you also get to choose a free stamp set. ANY stamp set in either the annual catalog or the mini catalog that you want, regardless of price!! You will also get a FREE paper sampler with 48 sheets of paper from different paper packs in the mini catalog. Lastly you will get an adorable mini paper trimmer that has a guillotine cutter! Let’s summarize the extra freebies:
- bonus free stamp set, any value from annual or mini catalog
- free paper sampler with 48 sheets
- free mini paper trimmer
- Diva Day March 27 from 5pm to 9pm
Diva Day and Beyond Pampered Team
These are the fun extra perks of getting the starter kit. I have an annual Diva Day for everyone who joins my team. The format varies from year to year but what remains the same is that I gather with all my new recruits to enjoy food, to stamp and to get spoiled with an amazing goodie bag to help you on your stamping journey. If you live far away then I will do a Facebook Live event with you and you will get a lovely surprise in the mail.
My Beyond Pampered team has a monthly gathering as well, the fourth Thursday of the month. We have a LOT of fun together, eating, drinking, stamping and laughing. We share our creativity and stories of what we have done in the last month. We talk a little shop but mostly this is just a fun time where we deepen our friendships. When Stampin’Up! has events we travel together as a team and stay in amazing places. I am loving the memories and the friendships that we have made as Beyond Pampered team.
This was the view from our Airbnb where we stayed for #OnStage2019 in Toronto. Without my team traveling together we could never stay in places like this!
When can you get the kit?
Of course you could get the kit right now but then you wouldn’t get the saleabration bonuses. Join on January 3 and you will have the most to gain! You will be able to enjoy three months of saleabration and even if you don’t intend to sell a thing, you should give out the free catalogs that you will get and share the great deals. It is so much fun to have some stamping buddies!! I will do a short video showing you the basics of how to sign up but of course it will not be completely accurate as there are no bonuses to include. That part should be quite straightforward as you will be prompted to make those extra choices. You can see the video here. A little later on you will also be able to see in on YouTube. If you have not yet subscribed to my YouTube channel, you can do that here as well.
A few little things
I thought I would share with you the cute little projects that we made during my saleabration Bingo last week. The purpose of this is to introduce my people to all the fantastic new products coming up in a fun way (everyone wins a prize!) as well as stamping with new products. We keep it simple so that we have time to play bingo and socialize too.
Thanks….and a contest!
Thanks for dropping by and if you haven’t already done so then do leave a comment and share my post or my projects on Pinterest or Facebook. Then you will have a chance to win the stamp set Holiday Haul. I will do the draw on Tuesday at noon. Some people were asking how to pin to Pinterest. If you hover with your mouse over one of my images a red Pinterest icon will appear. Just click on that and it will prompt you to “pin” it to one of your boards. If we need a video on how to do Pinterest, let me know!!
If you missed my Facebook live on Tuesday, you might want to check it out as I talk about the starter kit there too. You can see it here. Thanks again for stopping by, I appreciate it ever so much!!
