Get Ready to Fall in Love With----

NEW Stampin' Up! Thinlits Card Dies!!!
Available August 1, 2013--They've been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more - BUT they've always been a bit tricky to create.  Not anymore!!  Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a care that flips in just one step. I can't wait to get my hands (and Big Shot) on these.
Label Card Thinlits Die
Circle Card Thinlits Die
These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards.
I also wanted to share with you some great cards I got from swapping at the Convention.  Here are only a few of the wonderful cards and ideas I received---Enjoy!

Flower Shop--Mystery Hostess

This is the card I'm going to be sending from the Convention for Stampin' Up!'s World Record for the MOST greeting cards sent simultaneously from a single location.  That's a mouthful----
Also, it's the beginning of the monthly Mystery Hostess
Code for this month is  . . . . 9QFGCCTY
Here's how the Mystery Hostess Code works:

When you're placing an online order less than $150.00 (before tax/shipping), you will want to use the Hostess Code!  Why??  You could be the Mystery Hostess for online orders for that are placed during the ordering period.  A Mystery Hostess will be randomly picked and the Hostess will receive the Hostess Dollars/Rewards to spend!!!  So......if your order is less than $150.00, you can use my Mystery Hostess code and you could earn the Hostess Dollars/Rewards WITHOUT placing a minimum of $150.00 order yourself.  There will be different Hostess Code available each month from the 15th---25th of that month.  The Mystery Hostess will be picked and notified at that time.

Here's a picture of how your screen will look when you're placing the order and where the Hostess code should be entered:
Click on photo to enlarge your viewing.
If you've been placing online orders with me . . .the only thing you need to differently is add the Hostess Code BEFORE you check-out.  Everything else works the same. Couldn't make it to a stamp camp, but still want to get some stuff? Attended a stamp camp, but want to have a chance to be the Mystery Hostess?  This is the way to do it.  
  • Plus--the Mystery Hostess can use her Hostess Dollars to purchase the Hostess Only items located in the back of the NEW 2013/2014 Annual Catalog.  These Hostess ONLY items are exclusive the the Hostess ONLY.  How great is that??
  • PLUS--once you place your order using the Mystery Hostess Code, your order will be shipped directly to you.

I will contact the Mystery Hostess winner and let them know how much they get to spend in Hostess Dollars.  Then they tell me what they want and I close the order.  The goodies will then be on their way to them.

  • Plus--I always give a special extra TREAT that I add to the order, just for the Hostess.

Click HERE to place your order and use this week's Mystery Hostess code.  My blog post the the 15th will show the Mystery Code for that month.
When placing your order, PLEASE check that your order has your current phone number and email address so I can contact you when your name is drawn.

  • YES---Susie's Stampin' Rewards points apply to orders using the Mystery Hostess code as well.

REMEMBER---when your order reaches $150.00+ (before tax/shipping)DO NOT use the Hostess code.  You will receive your own personal Hostess Rewards for your order.
Thanks for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.
