April Hostess Code and Online Club Projects

Announcements/ Big Shot/ Online Stamp Club/ Samples

Hey Stampers! We dodged a big weather bullet here today and the sun is now shining…whew! So thankful no hail arrived.  I wanted to share my April Hostess Code and Online Club Projects. In case you are new to my blog, I have an online club as well as local stamp clubs. This means if you don't live near me, you can still stamp with me!

Each month, for a minimum $40 order at my online store, you receive PDF tutorials AND card kits for my monthly projects. The kits include all the consumable products to make the cards, including cardstock, die-cut pieces, embellishments, and envelopes. No images will be stamped. You can order the stamp set/s I use or substitute any you might have. Orders must be placed using hostess code VAGY4PBW no later than April 15th.

Once I see your order I'll email you your PDF tutorials. The kits will be sent out priority mail by the end of the month. Here are this month's card projects; notice the  flower theme. I'm ready for Spring!

April Hostess Code and Online Club Projects

These cards use the following products; just click on an image to order.

You can order ANY items of at least $40 (before tax and shipping) in order to get your free PDF Tutorials and card kits. BE SURE to use hostess code VAGY4PBW if your order is less than $150. If you have a really long list and your merchandise totals more than $150, don't use the code. Why? You'll get to choose at least $15 in Stampin' Rewards AND I'll still send you my club goodies.

If you're not sure what to order, let me suggest a three month pre-paid Paper Pumpkin subscription! Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit that arrives right to your door with everything you need (except for regular adhesive and scissors) to complete the projects. This is a great way to have a “creative escape” OR gift to a friend who loves crafting. I've been a Paper Pumpkin subscriber since this program started and I look forward to my orange box each month!

Now, as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator of course I don't restrict my crafting to just one month and I don't know too many of my customers who do either…lol! But, just to have a little extra fun this month, I'll have projects to inspire you, a contest or two, some freebies, and other fun stuff…each and every day!  Make it a point during each day to stop by so you don't miss anything!

Today's project is a simple, fun card that makes it easy to create a stack of birthday cards so you'll be ready to add a personalized greeting, postage stamp and send a card out to family and friends.
