Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration is a go!

Well it's here! The biggest promotion of the Stampin' Up! Calendar this year. It is nearly a month earlier than last year.

I am so excited with what is available in this years Sale a Bration promotion, that I thought it was appropriate to outline each aspect.

There are 3 parts to the promotion:

Part 1 - Free Products

Yes. That is correct. 'Free Product'. Let me explain how it works. For any order of $110 (before shipping & handling), you can choose one of the 10 products exclusive to the sale-a-bration catalogue. It is not for orders over $110, but for multiples of $110. Therefore if you ordered $220 you can choose 2 items. $330, 3 items and so on.
Also you don't have to shop exclusively from the Spring Catalogue, you can order anything you want from ANY of the catalogues, or online product, and still qualify for the free items.

Part 2 - $45 more to spend if you spend over $450 on any Stampin' Up! products with a qualifying party.
When you host a Stampin' Up! party, there are 'benefits'  when you place an order over $350
For this time only, if you place one single or party order of $450 or more, you will get an extra $45 to spend on anything you like. That is a total of $115 for free!!!!
See the table below:

Part 3 - Extra bonus when you join Stampin Up!

When anyone joins Stampin' Up! normally, you spend $189 and choose $285 worth of products and get free shipping and a free batch of brochures, order forms and other business items.

While Sale a Bration is on, you still pay $189 and get $285 worth of products but you also choose one of the 5 different kits exclusive to the Spring Catalogue or 2 Sale-a-Bration free products.

To choose the kit, choose the left hand option, to choose 2 SAB items, select the right hand option.

By joining Stampin'Up, you are able to make future purchases, but instead of buying through me, you buy through yourself, and receive an immediate 20 % net discount on anything you buy. 
I would urge anyone who has a shopping list in excess of $189 to start thinking about joining Stampin' Up!

”You Can Create It”

Finally I can bring you my exciting news

Welcome to MACH WAS DRAUS!  
Translation: “You Can Create It” 

What an exciting opportunity to be the only South Pacific representative for this fabulous international blog hop! I am amongst so many talented ladies. Some are my Stampin' Up! idols!  

Just wanted to show what I created from 3 pieces of cardstock an ribbon challenge called ' create with it' organised by my demo friends Heike and Anja from Germany. Go to their blogs www.heikeskartenwerkstatt.de and www.lueftchen-stempelstudio-bergedorf.blogspot.com

Let me explain how it works… Each month I receive an envelope with a few simple supplies in it.  The challenge is to create something with these pieces only. 

As you go through blogs of the participating demonstrators you will see lots of different creations.

There are lots of international demonstrators who are participating and I am the only New Zealand demonstrator.   I was so excited to be chosen by my dear friend Heike.

This month, here is what I received:
   4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Pear Pizzazz cardstock
   4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Soft Sky cardstock
   4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Early Espresso cardstock
   24 Early Espresso Seam Binding ribbon
   4 x 4 Canvas Creations

Unfortunately due to my excitement I lost the canvas piece and substituted it with some whisper white.

Here is what I came up with.  Unfortunately I do not have a tutorial. However I am sure this will come in the new year.

Enjoy all the creations made by myself and the other fellow demonstrators

Stampin' Up!s ultimate tools- A must have!

Last Friday, my good friend Laraine came over to view my second big delivery from Stampin' Up. We opened up the box and started to have a play with the new products.

The Trimmer is fantastic, however you must remove the protective cover!! as I found out.  During the next little while I will show you some of what I have used my trimmer for.

Clean up July 2014

Before I could do anything in my studio, I needed to have a clean up!
Here are the before and after photos.
Photos are a little blurry as they were taken on my iPad

 What a mess. I couldn't even see the floor!
Now this is better. You can see Ned my traveling bear from my other online business Little Bear Company sitting on the window ledge.

This is where I will be creating!!!!!!!!
What does your studio/sewing area look like?
