Ronald McDonald House Charities ~ Tag Alongs

 

Tag Alongs #117018 OR 120513

 

Through the Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Each year, the company donates $100,000 to the organization. In addition, they design an Exclusive Stamp Set to promote the partnership with RMHC, and donate a portion of the proceeds from the each sale of that set. To date, more than $95,000 has been donated from RMHC Stamp Set sales.

Stampin' Up!'s Demonstrators are also encouraged to volunteer their time teaching local Ronald McDonald House guests the creative art of rubber stamping through the Making a Difference program. Demonstrators also create cards at training events which are donated to Ronald McDonald Houses. Those staying at the Houses then use the cards to keep in touch with loved ones while they are away from home.

You can help us make a difference. Purchase this year's set, Tag Alongs, and they'll donate $2 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for each set purchased.

The Tag Alongs Stamp Set is a little gem that is tucked away on Page 225 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue.

To help get your creative juices flowing, here is a sample of a beautiful Card you can make with this invaluable Stamp Set.

Customer Q&A ~ Do I have to Pay Shipping, Handling & Taxes on Hostess Benefits?

 

Q: Do I have to pay Shipping, Handling & Taxes on Hostess Benefits?

A: No. Along with getting something for FREE, that is the part of the beauty of receiving Hostess Benefits from Stampin' Up!

In Nova Scotia, where I live, that is a hugh savings, because our Tax Rate is 15%.

If you Host a Qualifying Workshop or Place an Order of $200.00 or more (before Shipping, Handling and Taxes), you will receive Hostess Benefits. The amount of Hostess Benefits will depend on the Total Merchandise Amount before Shipping, Handling and Taxes. To see how much you are entitled to and what you can choose, take a look at pages 9-16 of the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue.

The only time that you have to pay Shipping, Handling and Taxes on Hostess Benefits is if you go over the amount that you have earned in FREE Merchandise. For example if you have earned $20.00 in FREE Merchandise and that total comes to $21.84, then you will pay the Shipping, Handling and Taxes on $1.84. It is still a great deal.

If you have any questions or would like to book a Workshop, you can call me (902) 455-7259 or email me at nancy@nancyfancystamping.com.

Guess How Many Stamp Sets?

 

  Addition Stamp Set Added to the Everything Must Go Sale!

I was never good at the game "guess how many Jelly Beans are in the jar", but I certainly wouldn't think that there is exactly 100 Stamp Sets in this photo.

You would say "what does that got to do with me"? Well, that is the number of new Stamp Sets that I have added to the Everything Must Go Sale! that is going on Saturday Oct 23, 2010 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at 6427 Dudley St., Halifax Nova Scotia. You can call Nancy McDonald of Nancy Fancy Stamping at (902) 455-7259 for directions.

You may have thought that I couldn't make it to Thursday Oct 21, 2010 Everything Must Go Sale! and there is probably nothing good left. You would be wrong. In addition to these extra 100 Stamp Sets, I will be adding more retired product as well.

I have a bonus offer that only applies to these 2 days. You will receive 25% of your purchase in Stampin' Bucks. For example if you spent $100.00, you will receive $25.00 in Stampin' Bucks rounded up or down to the nearest $5.00. You can redeem these Stampin' Bucks for Current Stamp Sets, Products or use it towards the price of a Class. Stampin' Bucks expire 1 year from the date that they are earned.

For the Everything Must Go Sale!, I will only be able to except CASH or CHEQUE.

How to Keep Track of the Products you Purchased?

If you are like me and have a lot of Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets and Products, how do you keep track of them going into the New Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue?

As I purchased these items, throughout the catalogue year, I highlighted the Product Number with a Yellow Highlighter in the current catalogue.

I open the New Stampin' Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue and I highlight everything that I already have. I will also highlight the Product Number of any future purchases. I do this so I don't purchase that same product again. Yes, I have done that.

Also if there is a new corresponding accessory, I know what I already have. It adds more value if I purchase the products that go together. It helps when you are planning a project to have all the corresponding products. This will take your Card, Project or Scrapbook Page to the next level if the Card Stock, Ribbon, Inks and other Embellishments all coordinate.

6 Reasons why I LOVE Stampin’ Up! New Punch Design

Stampin' Up! New Punch Design 

Stampin' Up! adopted a new body style for their punches.
It started with the new 2010 Occasions Mini Catalogue and will continue with all new punch designs going forward.

I am so excited about this new design.
1) They are low profile which makes them easy to store and stack.
2) The punches lock shut for easy storage and transportation. The old design took up a lot of space.
3) There are dual labels on the top and the end; which allows for easy identification and selection when stored. You can sit them on a shelf and the label will show you what the punch is, so you don't have to take every punch off of the shelf to see which on it is.
4) The new punches allow for larger punched images and more intricate designs while providing greater ease of use.
5) Corner punches allow you to punch a corner design along the inside edges of a page, not just corners. This is like getting 2 punches in 1. What a value!
6) The larger, whole-hand handle design provides better leverage for easier use. This is very helpful if you have Arthritis or not a lot of strength in your hands.

Part of Stampin' Up!'s commitment to providing customers with the very best crafting tools includes the belief in what they call continuous improvement.
Essentially what this means is that even if something works very well, but they see a chance to improve it, they will work to make it even better.

The following list of punches will be coming back as the new design.

These punches in the new design won't be available until after July 1, 2010.
