Firstly, HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to VICKI MARTINEZ from Templestowe for winning first prize in our Prize Draw at the Melbourne Women’s Expo at the Royal Exhibition Building last weekend. Vicki wins a lovely basket of Stampin’ Up! goodies.
Did you know March is my birthday month? Not my joining Stampin’ Up! birthday – my actual birthday!
I’ve had a quieter start to this year thanks to focusing on a few family things (which luckily a business like Stampin’ Up! allows me the flexibility to do) but things are settling down now, and before my birthday month is completely over, I wanted to throw myself a bit of a Stampin’ Party!
Hence I am introducing - End of March Madness, starting with a Hip Hip Hooray party at my place next Saturday afternoon.
Hip Hip Hooray is an AWESOME new card kit from Stampin’ Up! It’s fully self-contained – ie, it has stamps, ink, card, bakers twine, card bases, envelopes, clips, dimensional dots & five sheets of funky self-adhesive die-cut cardstock stickers to make 20 fun cards.
Hip Hip Hooray Card Kit is perfect for people new to stamping or card making, and yet the finished cards are professional, fun and funky.
How does the Hip Hip Hooray Party work?
Register with me and purchase your kit ($34.95) via credit card, bank transfer or paypal – (I can email you a paypal invoice), turn up on Saturday afternoon by 2pm, then as a group we will sit down in my classroom, assemble our stamps, I will show you which pieces to stamp and help you assemble your 20 cards. There is plenty of room for 8 people seated comfortably and I have eight kits in stock so don’t wait, let me know today if you’d like to give stamping and card making a go and see what it’s all about.
If you’re shy, why not ask a friend to come with you? Places are limited to eight, so get in quick if there are two of you. I will throw in tea, coffee and a snack and you will go home with a smile on your face, 20 finished cards, a stamp set, ink spot and any leftover pieces from the kit, having had a very fun afternoon!
Did I mention it works out at only $1.75 per card for 20 cards! Bargain!!
I need to know if you are coming as there are only eight places available, so please rsvp to this email, or phone me on 0418 361 931.
Again, the kit cost is just $34.95* per person, and you get everything you need to make 20 cards! We are going to have so much fun. My stamping room is at the back of my house and is very easy to find off Yarra Road in Croydon North, so don’t hesitate, reserve your place now.
Oh, and since it’s my birthday month, you are very welcome to bring me a birthday card! LOL
*If you can’t make the class, you can order a kit from my online store, however you will be charged $5.95 postage on top of the $34.95.
What else is happening for End of March Madness?
I will be running several new classes over the next couple of weeks, as well as the 50-50 promotion.
What the heck is the 50-50 promotion?
The 50-50 board has 50 numbered squares on it from one to fifty. Every time someone orders product valued at $50 or more, their name goes on a square. When the board is full, a random number draw will decide which person receives a $50 gift voucher from me to spend on any current Stampin’ Up! products. The voucher is valid until the 31st July 2014 so you will be able to save it to order from the brand new catalogue in July if you like!
The Stamp Club girls met this week, and their minimum required order to be in Stamp Club is $50 each month, so all of the Stamp Club ladies have already got their name on the 50-50 board, once, twice or even three times depending on their order total.
Getting your name on the board applies to online orders, as well as phone or email orders, or orders placed at classes, parties or workshops.
So if you’ve been thinking of placing an order, now’s the time to so and get your name on the 50-50 board to be in with a chance to receive a $50 voucher.

You might pay up to $300 for this elsewhere, but you won't pay $250, or even $200 for this fantastic class!
In true end of March Madness Style, I'm offering this class at a steal.
You won’t even pay $150, and you get to take home almost that amount in product!
This 5 hour class will be available for just $135 per person. That's only $3.35 per card for 40 cards and you'll have plenty of leftover supplies as well as a 5 beautiful Stampin’ Write Markers and TWO stamp sets to take home!
I can take payment by credit card over the phone, online bank transfer or Paypal.
Register today, and please let me know if you already own the In Colour Markers or the Banner Blast stamp set, as we will substitute those for other items of the same value. You will also need to nominate Wood Block or Clear Mount stamp sets. If you order Clear Mount stamps, you will need to bring your own clear blocks to the class.
If you aren’t able to attend on a weekday, this class will also run Saturday 12th April.
I will send a reminder of these upcoming events in the next week, and my April Newsletter will be coming out in a week or so too. Don’t forget, Sale-a-bration ends on 31st March and I will be taking Sale-a-bration orders right up to close of business on that day.
See you soon with ink on your fingers!
