December Frenzy News & Aviary Card holder

Hi everyone!
Now I've been bad I know, I neglected to blog about the December Frenzy and the Summer Mini catalogue, while every other Demo in the country it seems was blogging about them on the 1st December, I was busy running around getting ready for my team Christmas party / training day.  I baked over 130 cupcakes and taught them how to decorate them (yes, after just one lesson myself I was ready to throw myself off the deep end and teach my friends!).  Some I think have already blogged about that but I will share pics and details of that in a future post.  Right now, there are more urgent matters to let you know about!

The December Frenzy has gone so well that Stampin' Up! have just announced that some items will be returning to their usual pricing earlier than expected, to avoid out of stocks (which we as Demos hate!).  So you only have until Sunday night (that's TOMORROW - you only have about 24 hours!) to place your orders for Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy and Night of Navy markers before they go back to the usual price at midnight Sunday night.  Contact me QUICK if you want any of these colours!  Also, we've been told that other items may revert back to their usual prices early too, depending on how quickly they sell the stock they'd put aside at the sale pricing.  We won't have advance notice of this change, so again if you want anything from the December Frenzy, don't wait as you may miss out!

Here are the details in case you haven't already seen them:

Shipping isn't included in these prices, generally it will be another 5% on top of these prices depending on whether I can combine your order with others to save you a bit of money on that, if not the shipping charge is minimum $9.95.  If you want to place an order just email me and we can sort that bit out no problem.

I know the markers are selling well but it's actually other items in the sale that I'm excited about (since I already have all of the marker colours, oops....).  Here's a project that I put together as a make n take for my team at our Christmas party.  It uses the Aviary stamp set and the new Lattice embossing folder from the Summer mini catalogue, but it also uses the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set (currently a steal at $37.98 plus shipping!) and the small cello bags (on sale at $5.55 plus shipping for 50 bags!).  Some of my team were at a loss as to what to do with these bags, most often you see them used as the packaging for lollies (that's candy to my overseas readers!) or other small gifts. 

Here I've used them to make a cute little card holder to give as a gift to someone.  It's really easy to change out the stamps used and make it look completely different.  This project was not my original idea, I cased the idea from Andrea Walford who used the medium cellophane bags to make a bigger version this time last year, and made Christmas tags to put inside instead of little cards as I've done here.  I also used magnets to hold the folder closed where I think she used velcro.  I had some sheet magnet lying around and it worked well, so that's what I used!




If you'd like to see this project in real life (it does look better than in my pics!) or place an order for the December Frenzy products or items from the Summer mini, click here to email me.  It's not long until Christmas - if you'd like your goodies in time for the big day, don't delay!
