AND, guess what else happens in August? A new mini catalog that is stuffed with stamp sets and products for the Fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Halloween too. It's like the best "twofer" ever. Cash back AND new catalog picks...

In our new Stampin' Up! Catalog there are some amazing bundles. "Bundles" are combinations of a stamp set and a tool (either a punch or dies) that coordinate together AND when you purchase them together as a "bundle" you save 10%. Two wonderful products that work together AND a 10% savings... like having your cake and eating it too...
There are 8 punch bundles and 26 die bundles in our catalog, and the Lovely You is one of my favorite bundles, because it offers HUGE versatility.
In addition to the wonderful sentiments with a combination of fonts, there are image stamps included in the stamp set. The real star of the bundle, though, (at least for me) is the versatility of the punch. There are six different types of labels you can get this one amazing punch!!
Be sure to click HERE check out how cool this punch is.
Don't forget, if you spend $99 on the Starter Kit in June, you get $125 in SU! product, plus you can pick any bundle and add it to your kit for FREE. Contact me for all the details or visit my website 24/7 HERE and join my team.

Good morning. I hope you are healthy and safe! 
I am certain you are loving our new catalog. If you don't have one, please let me know. I don't want you to be missing out.  I had a weekend retreat virtually, and the stamps and accessories got great reviews.
Amazingly enough, Stampin' Up! is offering two outrageous specials right now.  I know you love our products, and wanted to be sure you knew about these great deals.
1.  When you purchase the SU! starter kit, you get to add a bundle (stamp set and coordinating punch or stamp set and coordinating dies) for FREE.  Our starter kit is an awesome deal, even without the free bundle.  You get to put whatever you want in your kit, and you get to pick $125 worth of merchandise for only $99, and it ships for FREE.  In June you get to add a bundle, any one of them that you love, for free.  There is no obligation to purchase anything after that.  You can grab the kit and the savings and go back to being a wonderful customers.  If you want to stay, though, there are lots of demonstrator perks you can enjoy.
2.  When you place a minimum $250 order in June, you get an additional $25 in Stampin' Rewards.  That means that for a $250 order, you would get $50 in Stampin' Rewards.
I am certain you have been drooling all over the new catalog and started a Wish List that's a mile long.  Please let me know which one of these deals is for you.  You can place your order or join my team on my website 24/7:
or text me:  248-909-8016

Finally learning about Google Docs--how to make them and how to share them.
I am super excited to share with you what will be happening virtually (via FaceBook and/or the Zoom Rubber Room) during the next few months.
