Finishing up all the planning.

It’s Management Monday! I have done my share of planning and only have a little bit to go. Thank heavens. So here’s what’s happening this week…

There is an order going in tonight at 7:30 pm! If you would like to order online please use host code K6UY9JT2 to help me boost the rewards basket. If you prefer to order in person please contact me before 7:30 pm.

Just a reminder that my office hours are Monday through Saturday from 9:30 am – 7:30 pm.

Open Time at the Studio happens today.

The BOGO sale starts on the 1st! I figured I should explain. The BOGO (buy one get one) sale starts on May 1 and finishes on June 3.

On May 1 I email out the list of my personal retiring items to my team. On May 3 this list goes out via email to my VIP’s. And on May 5 this list is distributed to everyone. Each set of emails will go out at 6 am of the corresponding day. All items have not been reserved before and all are while supplies last. All are first come first serve.

If you are a visual person and prefer to shop in person you can do this on Monday, May 6 during Open Times.

So let’s say you pick $50 worth of retiring items. You are then committed to purchasing $50 or more from the new catalog. When the new catalog order is shipped and received I will pack your retiring items with the new order at no charge.

You will not receive your retiring items until after the new catalog order is placed on June 4. You will receive all items once the new catalog order ships and is received. If you change your mind please let me know ASAP as someone else may have been waiting for that retiring item. If you do not contact me with your new catalog order by Monday, June 3 at 7:30 pm then your retiring items will go back on the list available for someone else.

I also figured I should reiterate how the rewards program works since it is coming up on the end of the year. The program runs from July 1-June 30.  So the last day to earn rewards for this period is June 14.  The last day to redeem all of them is June 30.  Don’t worry, the basket in May will be bigger and then June’s even bigger.  So you have two more baskets to pick from for this year.

And if that’s not enough…

I will be at Desert Rebel on Friday from 2-5. Make sure to drop by and create for just $5 per crafty project.

Save the date for Card Class on Tuesday the 7th, Thursday the 9th, or Saturday the 11th. Invitations will be emailed shortly.

Happy Crafting!

P.S. Just a reminder that there is open time at the studio today.

Technique Tuesday!

It’s Technique Tuesday! Do you know how to attach a card to a gift bag? Take a piece of card stock at least an inch wider than the card. Then punch a narrow window so the card can hang. Make sure the card matches since it will be a large part of the decoration for the bag.

If you would like to create this project on Friday please drop by Desert Rebel.

Foam stamps make great cards.

Creating a stamp is not hard.  Creating one that lasts and has great quality…I will leave that to the experts.  If you read Tuesday’s technique post you already know what I am talking about.  For today I will finish the card.

Using foam to make stamps.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended.  Did you know that you can make your own stamps?  I am not saying to go buy another machine.  I am saying to use what you already have.  So grab your fun foam from the dollar store and your Big Shot.  You will need foam, Big Shot, and Embossing Folder of choice.  Run the foam through in the folder just like you would with a piece of card stock.  Then grab some glue dots and tack the foam to a clear block to create a “stamp”.  Then ink and use normally.
