What’s Inside My Mystery Boxes?

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Paper crafting

Hey stampers! Would you like to know what's inside my mystery boxes? Take a look below:

What's Inside My Mystery Boxes?

My local BOGO shoppers left some bargains on the table, so it's your turn to score some great stuff! Here's how it all works:

I have two different sizes of boxes, medium and large. The medium sized box will sell for $50 and will include at least $80 of product. The large sized box will sell for $100 and will include at least $150 of product. Each box will also have 5 hand-stamped cards inside.

I will stuff each box full of stamp sets, ink pads, embellishments, ribbon, cardstock, patterned paper, die-cuts, punches, and other crafting items. As with my BOGO, some items will be used, some will be new. Most will be Stampin' Up! but I also have some Tim Holtz, Spellbinders, and other brands!

Each box will have different items and I only have a limited supply. Once they are gone, they're gone!
All sales are final and SHIPPING IS FREE!! Just click on link below to order your box. Questions? Please email me at anne@stampmaven.com.

Today’s Color Combo is Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black

Paper crafting/ Stamping

Happy Friday Stampers! Hope everyone had a great week and are looking forward to some fun weekend days! I know I sure am. I am lucky to be able to wear jeans to work, and I am a little or no makeup kind of a girl. But, I sure do love one of the new Stampin' Up! Colors, Lovely Lipstick. I wonder if I could use a q-tip and reinker and USE it for lipstick…NOT! Anyhoo, today's color combo is Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black. For some reason, I've always thought pinks and blues look fabulous on cards with just a pop of black!

Last Day To Grab Free Card Kits!

Online Stamp Clubs/ Paper crafting

Hey Stampers! Just a reminder that today is the last day to grab free card kits! Place any order of $35 or more at my online store and you'll get the kits and PDF tutorials to make these cards.

Last Day To Grab Free Card Kits!

You must use hostess code 3CR4XTFQ when you order to get the kits. Included in the kits are all the consumables, including envelopes! The new Share What You Love Designer Series Paper used in my cards is on backorder but I have enough to include extras in your kits! This is one of my favorite things in the new catalog!

If you need an order suggestion, why not get one of the new Share What You Love Bundles, loaded with new products AND free items but only available during May.

Last Day To Grab Free Card Kits!

When the new catalog debuts on June 1, you'll still be able to order the individual items in the bundles, but you won't be able to get the free products and the “Statement of My Heart” exclusive stamp set is only available in the “Gotta Have It All Bundle”!

Last Day To Grab Free Card Kits!

This is an updated version of our “demo creed” released for our 30th anniversary but I think it really speaks to what we all do as papercrafters. I know I surely loved sharing my creativity long before I actually joined the Stampin' Up! family.

Thanks for popping in today and if you need anything at all just give me a shout!
