You know how it is! It's almost the end of a season. You have used a lot of your package of Designer Series Paper, except for one or two of the sheets that weren't really your favourites, but you have small bits and pieces of all the other sheets left over. You can't throw them out!! Are you kidding me? They are far to pretty for that, but they are too small to use as a panel on a regular sized card. What do you do with them??
One idea is to get your notecards and envelopes out! These are smaller than a normal card size, measuring 3 1/2" x 5", and you can whip up a package of thank you cards or hello cards or invites really quickly and easily. This is where I use a lot of the smaller pieces of leftover DSP.
I absolutely love the Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Series Paper and I've used a lot of it this season so far, and plan to use it right up until January, but I also have many, many small left-overs. I decided to work them into some Thank You cards that I needed to make for my customers.
There are 20 cards in a package along with envelopes to match, so I just cut 20 Basic Black panels at 3 1/4" x 4 3/4". I stamped some Thank You sentiments from Six Sayings and One Big Meaning stamp sets on Whisper White and die cut them with suitable framelits, then added a scrap of DSP and the sentiment and topped it off with some Gold Glimmer Paper Stars punched with one of the shapes from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. Easy right? But how do they look?
It looks like I planned everything carefully, but the DSP scraps have not been altered. I used them as is! Each of the cards is unique, but the overall design is the same. How do you use up your DSP scraps? Leave me a comment to tell me what you do.
On Line Ordering - Please Read
Lately, I've had a number of people ordering on line through my Stampin' Up! store, but many of them, when choosing me as their demo, are not noticing a little question at the bottom where they can choose either to have no contact with me as the demonstrator, or allowing me to know who they are and their contact info.
I can totally understand if people want to remain anonymous and that is fine with me, but the No Contact is the default setting unless you click on the Yes box. I have a customer loyalty rewards program that I cannot extend to you if I cannot contact you. I would like to send you Thank You cards for your orders, and give you access to some of my customer appreciation events. But I can do none of that if you don't click the box that allows me to see your name, address and email address. I just want everyone to be aware of it.
I don't want to flood you with emails, because I would need express consent from you to send you anything and I usually only send out 1 or at the most, 2 emails a month. So please consider if you would like me to be able to contact you and select that option when ordering.
Don't Forget - Double Papercraft Cat Reward Points in November
Are you collecting my Papercraft Cat points? (One of my customers dubbed them Pickle Points after my papercrafting cat, Pickle!) You earn 1 Pickle Point for every $30 you spend in one order. When you collect 20 points, you will receive a $50 Gift Certificate for Stampin' Up! products. It hasn't been an issue until now, but each point expires two years after the date it was issued. That means the first points I gave out will start to expire in January 2016. To help you gather 20 points before some expire, I am offering you Double Pickle Points during November. You will receive 2 points for every $30 you spend until November 30! Perfect for Christmas Shopping!
