March 25th 2014


well firstly, I wanted to create a newsletter for the many people who've been requesting one from me, so I have added all the email addresses of those who've previously been in contact with me. if I have added you in error, please do feel free to unsubscribe and accept my apologies. (unsubscribe detail at the bottom)

And in actual fact, because this is a brand new newsletter, anyone can unsubscribe at any time, and I will not be offended at all!

I've set this up because I wanted to share a little 'exclusivity' with you all. Something that isn't out there on my blog, or on my facebook page. A little extra monthly project. This will usually be a video, but may be some card ideas too, and of course, a place to share our latest SU promotions and offers, and you can keep it in 'hard file' format in your email system so you don't have to go hunting for it again!

The plan at this stage is to bring a newsletter to you once a month, it will usually be towards the beginning of the month (says she, writing this a week before the end of March) but if something amazing and exciting comes along between my planned dates, I may send out a quick mini one, just to keep you in the loop.

I hope, that like my blog, this will read 'magazine' style in its layout, where you can read sections or headers and however you like.

And I hope that you find it a useful way of staying in the loop of what's happening at Pootles, and also at Stampin' Up!

Latest Updates and News
Sale a Bration
There is just one week left of this promotion which ends on March 31st. I have a clickable link HERE where you can read it in more detail on my blog, but in short, for every �45 you spend (not including postage) you can choose a free product from a selection of exclusive items that aren't, and won't be available for regular sale.

You could join my team for the usual cost of �99 but choose �150 worth of products in your kit rather than the usual �130 (which to be fair, is a pretty awesome offer anyway!), which is fab if you want to fund your hobby or start a new business. (FAQ HERE or to go directly to the joining page, HERE)

And if your order is over �250, or you want to collect together some orders from friends and it goes over this amount, you get the regular �40 of free ���s to spend on anything else, AND an extra �25 on top!

Best of Stamps ending soon
The 'Best of' stamp sets are going to be retiring on March 31st. 

We had 5 beautiful sets brought to us in Europe, sharing the best of Stampin' Up!s 25 years. But they're only going to be around for a few more days, so if you want to get hold of them, now's the time to do it.

I think the Best of Christmas was my most used stamp this year. Who didn't love that deer with his incredibly intricate antlers!

Here's a link for all 5

Petite Petals Punch
Almost as soon as this went live in January, it went out of stock, just weeks later in the middle of February.

Our punches are made under license to us by EK Success, so we are restricted by their time scale when products run out. You cannot buy our designs through EK, they're exclusive to us, (of course!), but fortunately, I'm now able to say that those that were on back order are now being shipped out, and you should hopefully have yours soon.. 

What I can say is, you all have amazing taste, as this has sold out globally and it's also my favourite punch too!!!

Thank you to EVERYONE who has been patiently waiting for theirs, and also.... check your letterbox for something from me regarding this too....
If you don't have a copy of the Spring Summer, please do let me know, I'm happy to pop one in the post to you for free, and if you'd like a copy of the Annual Catalogue, I can also send one to you, but postage costs (cos it's a heavy thing!) would be �2.95.  But please do just let me know if you want either. Email me here

Clearance Rack Update
We never have very much advance warning of when the Clearance Rack will be updated, so essentially, as soon as I know, you'll know!

But around a month ago, a load of products were removed from it. They are now back! Yay! This has caused a run on Table Top Cutters (and why not, at half retail price of �48, it's too much of a bargain!), but there are some great and much loved/missed products in there, so if you haven't seen the clearance rack before, check it out HERE

Exclusive Video Tutorial Just for YOU!
March Paper Box Tutorial
Paper Box Tutorial, with unusual insides!
I absolutely adore the DSP stacks, we've had them in all the mini catalogues over the last year, and I hope that one day, SU will make them a feature of the main catalogue too. But, I wanted to make a small box that held a lot.
You will be able to see the video and other visuals on my blog, on a hidden page HERE. You don't need a password or anything like that, and the video hasn't been hidden down, it's just set to 'unlisted' so that only you who I've shared the page with, will be able to see it.


Team Update
I have an amazing team of demonstrators, and I'm really proud of all their achievements.

There has been a mad flurry of promotions recently, and I'm endlessly delighted to praise and reward them too.

They've kept me very busy running to and from the post office with gifts for them!

I've recently updated the Pootlers Map, but as fast as I'm updating it, new demonstrators are joining my team, and their teams too!
