I know, it's been almost a week since I last posted. School holidays have a way of sucking up all your spare time, don't they?
I had a great time away camping, but I haven't stopped since we got back. I've been wanting to pop on here and tell you about this month's specials.
You can get 20% off Simply Sent Kits from 4-11 October. You can see them on page 12-14 of the catalogue. They make a great gift and are also a great way to get started with stamping. I like to take them away on holidays with me, because they are so compact, and contain everything you need in there. The cardstock is all pre-cut for you, and there are even instructions. My favourite one is Simple Delights, but they are all gorgeous. Here are some cards we made at a Stamp-a-Stack class using the stamps in the kit:
We made 2 designs as per the kit instructions, and for the other 2 cards, I came up with my own design using the kit contents. I substituted Vanilla Grosgrain ribbon for the twill tape, as i didn't have enough twill to last through a month of classes!
The other promotion is Stampin' Up's Birthday Promotion. Stampin' Up! is turning 20, and WE get the presents! For the month of October, when you place a $20 order, you can get 20% off 5 great stamp sets:
Big Bold Birthday (pg 37) reg $53.95 NOW $43.16
Pretty Princess (pg 38) reg $45.95 NOW $36.76
Birthday Best (pg 51) reg $25.95 NOW $20.76
Crab & Company (pg 55) reg $52.95 NOW $42.36
Short & Sweet (pg 118) reg $29.95 NOW $23.96
Once you spend your $20, you can order 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5 stamp sets at 20% off! What a bargain!
If you've had your eye on any of these sets, October is the month to buy them.
I'll be back tomorrow with a 'Big Bold Birthday' card that I made today. In the meantime, I've made the stamp set names above links to cards I have made using the sets (all except Pretty Princess, which I don't own).
I'll be back soon!
