PRODUCT OF THE MONTH – 5% discount! MINI GLUE DOTS

This is not a new product, but having spent a few hours on scrap pages lately reminds me that these are one of my favourite forms of adhesive. They are so convenient, and are the best option for adhering ribbon to card stock. I love to use them for sticking down buttons and other embellishments too. They are great to use on cards when adding a bow, hodgepodge, flowers from the Pretties Kit or felt flowers. So very versatile and all conveniently packaged.

If you would like to take advantage of the discount on the Product of the Month you can place your order here

NEW Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue is on it's way.

As demonstrators we are the first to see the new releases from Stampin Up and I'm excited to announce that a New Mini Catalogue will be launched August 1st. One of our privileges is being able to pre-order products from the catalogues. If you'd like to have this advantage too, talk to me about joining the team - you'll always receive 20% discount on all your products, plus have the ability to earn commissions and overrides on your sales.
