December Happenings

There is so much going on this month.  I hope you will take a moment to read the current updates at the bottom of your home page.  
I will provide a short synopsis of some of them here:

New Catalogs pre-order 

As a current Demonstrator you can pre-order from the Occasions catalog right now.  You can get anything but the hostess sets.  One of each stamp set and up to three of the accessories. 

There are four benefits of ordering this month:
1. You get free Sale-a-Bration (SAB) rewards for each $50 - $100 you spend!  Pick out something from the SAB catalog.
2. You'll receive your own copies of the two new catalogs with a Demonstrator order placed from December 5th - 14th.
3. You can meet your quarterly minimum AND get free SAB product at the same time!
4. Ordering early helps you prepare for your events in January. Sale-a-Bration is the best time of the year to hold a class or event! 

Year End Close-Out event

See the list of retiring and discounted items here.
Here is the carry over list.  See that here. 

*Anything you order (current, retiring, discounted or new Occasions product) counts towards a free Sale-a-Bration choice!  It's a fabulous time to order and enjoy your Demonstrator discount!  

 Craft & Carry Tote!

As a Demonstrator, you can order the new Craft & Carry Tote!  But time is limited; so get it this month if you want one!  After that this cute bag is only available to new Demo's in their kit:
  • The Craft & Carry Tote (item number: 149696, $50 USD is available for preorder from November 12, 2018, to January 2, 2019, at 11:50 PM (MT). Once Sale-A-Bration begins on January 3, 2019, the bag will be part of the "Join" offering during Sale-A-Bration promotion.
  • Items must be placed on a demonstrator order. It may also be added to a Starter Kit at full price during the preorder period.
  • During the preorder period there is a limit of one bag per demonstrator. Quantities for the preorder are limited, to ensure that there will be sufficient stock throughout Sale-A-Bration.
  • The Craft & Carry Tote bag is a supply item, therefore non-commissionable.
  • Tote: 9-1/4" x 16-1/2" x 7" and holds your Stampin' Trimmer and a lot more!

Upcoming Events:
  • December Shoe-box Swap and Meeting
We're swapping Occasions and SAB projects!  I have about 11 on the list so far.  Everyone; including l ong distance gals are welcome to join in.   
RSVP to join by December 10th.  
You'll create a card with product you'll pre-order from the two new catalogs. You'll get back a ton of ideas!  
  • Use a new Occasions or Sale-a-Bration stamp set; it should be the star of your card. 
  • Feature as many new products as you can. 
  • Those who attend make one finished card as a sample and package the rest in baggies for us to finish here. 
  • Long distance gals will make all of their cards for us and mail them to me.  Have them here for the swap on the 28th.
  • Use all current products from the Annual, Occasions or SAB catalogs (nothing from the Holiday or retired please)
  • Make full cards; use at least 3 layers and an embellishment.
  • Do your very best work with clean, smooth cuts and clear images. 
  • Let me know which stamp set you will be using so we have a great variety.  Post on the Facebook event so we can all see. 
January meeting - 12th at 10 am
February meeting - 16th at 10 am 

April OnStage!

Event date: Saturday, April 13, 2019 
Registration dates: January 15-February 26, 2019 
Price: $120 USD or 12,500 flex points

Registration is coming up in January!  I'll be attending the event in Minneapolis and hope to have a nice crowd there with me.  I highly encourage you to attend; it's so much fun!  Start planning now!

Some may drive and some might take the train from Minot.  But we can all hang out together and hopefully spend Friday there too.  

**There's a fair chance I will reach my million dollars in career sales in time to celebrate at the April event.  I would love it if a bunch of you could be there with me!
