Hello, Stamping Friends!  

Is it the first day back to school in your area?  Well, it should be here, but a dispute between the teachers and the government (which has been going on since May!) has put the start of school on hold, indefinetely.  Now, some kids might think that this is fan-tab-u-lous, but if your child is in high school, as my youngest is (going into grade 11), you know that this is not so much fun, as it is nerve-wracking and stressful, as every day that's missed puts them behind in work that is required for graduation.  

*sigh*  I could continue with my thoughts on this topic, but it would not solve any problems, and just raise my blood pressure!   Besides, stamping is more pleasant to talk about, and I have some news to share with  you!

Have you been on the fence about hosting your own Stampin' Up! party, private class, or even a catalogue party?  Maybe this will get you hopping off on the right side!  


Now until October 31st, you are able to earn the Exclusive Good Greetings stamp set when your Party (or personal order) reaches $325 (before taxes and shipping).  That's right – a FREE stamp set IN ADDITION to the other exciting and generous Hostess benefits you get!  

This versatile Good Greetings stamp set covers holidays and events from Hallowe'en to Valentine's, and more!  Here's a look at what's included in the set:

This is an Exclusive set that can only be earned with a qualifying order- it cannot be bought or ordered as a regular Hostess set.  It's only for FREE! 🙂  with your qualifying party or personal order.

Are you wanting this set, but not sure you can host a successful party?  Banish the thought!!  I'm here to help you with tips on inviting guests, planning your event, and keeping it easy & fun!  Plus, you don't even have to hold a 'traditional' party – you can schedule your own private class, for you & your friends; I bring the supplies and designs, and teach you all how to create fabulous projects.  No time?  No problem!  Have a catalogue party – hand out catalogues to your family, friends & co-workers, set an end date for orders, collect them up, and I'll do the rest! 

So let's recap:

– you have a fun event (or a personal order) that totals $325 (before tax & shipping)

-you get a FREE Good Greetings Stamp Set

-you also get your $40 in Hostess dollars to spend on anything you want in either of the current catalogues, or the Clearance Rack

-your order is placed by October 31st

-I will help  you plan your event, share tips to maximize attendees, sales and fun!

Easy-peasy!   Give me a call at 604.298.0472 or email me at debsmart@shaw.ca with your choice of date, and we'll go from there!  Hurry – you don't want to miss out!

WEEKLY DEALS – available Sept. 1st to Sept. 7th


I am so excited to see that our Simply Pressed Clay is on special this week – perfect timing for making your own Christmas ornaments!!  Did you see the one on page 14 of the Holiday Catalogue?  It's so cute!

Not only is this ornament adorable, but it's super-easy to make, too!  Stampin' Up! has even created a video to show you how easy it is to make one exactly like this:

I'm planning on making lots of these, plus trying some of my own designs!  I'm thinking of how easy it will be, if I pull out my Christmas cookie cutters!  What do you think?  Plus, if you want to have a coloured ornament, all you have to do is while you're softening up the Clay, add a few drops of Re-Inker in the colour you want, then squish it together to mix in the ink.  Voila!  Your own personal, one-of-a-kind colour and ornament!

Be sure to get your order in soon – these deals are only on until next Monday, Sept. 8th.

Before I sign off for today – one more reminder!  Be sure to take advantage of the Early Bird Sign Up for my Creative Craft Escape, on October 19th.  I'm hosting this fun, fabulous get-away for an afternoon with one of my great downline, Debbie Pollastretti; and we're going to make sure you'll remember this event for a long time!  

Go to the Registration Event page (across the top menu bar) for all the details of the event, and to register.  Early Registration Discount is on ONLY UNTIL SEPT. 15TH – so HURRY!!  

Until next time, 

Happy Stamping!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
