Happy December everyone.  Really???  December already???  Where or where does time go?  I don’t normally post on Saturdays, but I thought I’d spend a few minutes and share a few things with you–both what the December Stampin’ Happenings are, and a little bit about what I have been up to (outside of stamping all the time!)

December Stampin’ Happenings

Let’s start with the good stuff…..  What is happening at Stampin’ Up! in December!

On December 5th, Stampin’ Up! will begin to clear out Retiring Products and Overstock products.  I don’t have the sale specifics yet as they seem to change every year, but there are often BIG DISCOUNTS on many products,  So make sure to check back on December 5th for all the details!

Holiday Catalog Retiring List

Along with the details of the Year-End Closeouts, Stampin’ Up! will also post the Holiday Catalog Retiring List and announce which products will carry-over.  Again, check back for all the details.

From past experience, once the retiring list is announced, many things SELL OUT FAST.  So, if there is something you ABSOLUTELY can not live without, order before the list is announced, or RIGHT AWAY when they post the list!  Once the list is posted, everything becomes available on a “while supplies last” status!

ALL BUNDLES WILL RETIRE….this is always confusing, but even if stamps & dies are “carried over” and will remain available, the 10% discounted bundle prices will be retired.  So, if there are BUNDLES you want, I would highly recommend ordering them NOW while you can get the 10% DISCOUNT.

Stamparatus Bag Available December 5th

The long awaited Stamparatus Bag will be available for purchase on December 5th!  And I have to tell you–IT’S AMAZING!!!  If you have a Stamparatus, you want this!!!  (Maybe tell someone to get for you for Christmas!)

If you already have the Stamparatus, just buy the bag!  If you have not taken the plunge yet and purchased the BEST STAMPIN’ TOOL IN THE WORLD, you can purchase the Stamparatus with the Bag!!!

Gift Certificates Available

Do you have crafty family and friends and not sure what to get them???  How about a Gift Certificate.  I have them available in any amount–its the perfect gift!  When you purchase I can either email it to you or send in the mail along with a hand-made Christmas card!

Gift Certificates

If you’d like in a different amount than shown, just email me and I can send you an invoice.

December Stamps-in-the-Mail

We are going to take a month off from Stamps-in-the-Mail to give everyone a chance to catch up and get all their past kits completed!
This is such a busy time of the year for all of us and not a lot of stamping gets done. I hate to have you purchase products and then not use them right away.
We will be back in January with an awesome new kit with brand new products that I am sure you will love!!!!

Coming January 3, 2019

The New Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-bration begin on January 3!!!  I will share more later this month about how to get your copies and also about all the FREE PRODUCTS you can get during Sale-a-bration!!!!  It’s the most amazing stamping time of the year!!!

WOW–that’s a lot!!!!  

As always, if you have any questions, just ask by leaving a comment here on the blog, or send me an email at:  [email protected]
I have been been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 24 years and this is my full-time job–I am here to help you learn to make “quick & easy” cards, as well as help you with all your stamping needs and questions!!!

What Has Jackie Been Up To?

As many of you know, my family is scattered all over the country (actually the world right now.). I hate that my kids are not close, but it also gives me good reasons to travel to see them.  Over Thanksgiving Dave and I traveled to Pennsylvania to see our son and daughter-in-law.  They are unable to come home at Christmas, so we celebrated both Thanksgiving and Christmas with them.
I even got drug out on Black Friday with Kristal, something I never do!!!  But it was a great time and I found some great bargains!
Right before we left I did something I have NEVER DONE…..put up my Christmas tree BEFORE THANKSGIVING.  I wanted it all done when I got home because I knew I would be super busy.
As you can see–it’s very patriotic.  Ever since my son was in the Marines, I have had a red, white and blue tree.  I will keep it that way along as I have kids in the Military!
Speaking of kids in the military…….tomorrow I leave for Arizona to welcome home my daughter from a deployment to Korea!!!!  I am one happy momma right now!!!
I have lots of fun projects planned for you while I am gone, but I may be a bit slower responding to emails the next week, so thanks in advance for your patience!!!
Well, time to go get packing….
