Join for $25 - One Week Left!

Join Stampin' Up! for only $25 - ends 10/21, dostamping, dawn olchefske

I'm excited to welcome so many new members to my DOstamperSTARS group this past week.  There is lots of interest and lots of questions too!  Here's some questions I've been receiving and answering.

Q: Can I order clearance rack, weekly deals for my $25-$26.95 Starter Kit product?
A:  Absolutely!  You can select from any current Stampin' Up! catalog, discounted clearance rack or current specials!

Q:  When is my first $300 quarterly order/sales due?
A:  Not until March 31st!!  Your next one after that will be June 30th

Q:  I'll probably only buy for myself, family and friends.  Is that OK?
A:  Yes - that is OK!  In fact, the majority of my DOstamperSTARS purchase the same way.  Most people join for the discount!

Q: I'm long distance from you.  How does that work?
A: No problem at all.  I have members from all over the US and PR. The majority of my group is long distance.  We connect on our private Facebook community.  I offer "basic" training, tutorials, reminders and more on my DOstamperSTARS password protected blog.  We do occasional swaps and more!!

I'm not one to convince people they should join Stampin' Up!  I believe you should join when you're ready, when the time is right for you and you feel the most comfortable with your decision.  Having said that...

  • if you're the type of person who's been waiting for the best deal
  • if you've been on the fence for quite some time
  • if you're a new stamper and have a big wish list to fill
  • if you love making cards and sharing your hobby
  • I'm not sure there will be a better time ever to join!

Here's the reminder of the details!

SQC: Flower Shop Burlap Ribbon Card

Need some Super Quick & Cute cards (SQC)?  Then today's Stampin' Up! Flower Shop card will just be the thing for you!  With a couple of punches, a dash of ribbon and a touch of "candy dots", you'll be finished in no time at all.  In fact - you should even have time to line a matching envelope with the Envelope Liners Framelits Dies.  Take a look... 

dostamping, Dawn Olchefske, Stampin' Up! Flower Shop, Burlap Ribbon card, #quickcute

If you're anything like me, I'm always in need of thank you cards.  And who wouldn't like to receive this one?  What a delight to open this card.  The Burlap Ribbon from the Stampin' Up! 2013 Holiday Catalog adds a touch of texture inviting them in to give it a feel.

Enjoy~Dawn O

STAR Swapper Jan Carlson: Halloween Hello & Weekly Deal Q & A

Weekly-Deals-Banner2

Woohoo, you guys are excited for Stampin' Up!'s new Tuesday Weekly Deals.  I received tons of questions yesterday and thought I'd share some answers here.

Q:  Is this a one day sale?
A:  No, it lasts for an entire week!

Q:  Will this be every week?
A:  Yes!  This is just like your local grocery store offering a weekly special.  Only our special will begin on Tuesdays and end on Mondays.  So be sure to check back every Tuesday for the new special.

Q:  Is it only for online orders?
A:  No, you can contact me with your order as well.

Q:  I can't see the discounted price in your store?
A:  When you click "Add to Bag", the discounted price will be applied and will show up your shopping bag.

Q:  So, what about Thank You Thursdays?  Is that a one-day or a week special?
A:  Good question.  The "Thank You Thursdays" is a one-day special.  It will only be Thursdays in October, in celebration of Stampin' Up!'s blog milestone!

I hope that answers your questions.

You can check out this week's deals here...thanks!

A while ago DOstamperSTARS got together for our annual Camp-a-Rama Event and Swap.  The swap theme was "anything from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog".  And in "just her style", Jan selected Halloween Hello for her swap.  Check out all her fun details below:

Hmm...I guess you're wondering what stamp set she used for the "polka dot" background.  Not a stamp set...it's Bubble Wrap!  Just apply the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark Stampin' Ink Pad directly to the bubble wrap and "stamp" onto black cardstock.  Clever girl that Jan!

Check out Jan's blog here:  Stampin With Jan

Enjoy~Dawn O
