Hostess Code-How they work and when to use them!


Hi everyone!

Today, I want to talk about hostess codes and specifically how they are used.

Starting today, July 1st, you will find a hostess code at the end of every blog post for the month of July, until July 30th.  If you place an order with me and it us under $150 before shipping and handling, you can use this code to enter to win a gift bag punch board.

Stampin Up! created this code as a way for demonstrators to reward customers who do not place orders that earn Stampin' Rewards. When your order is $150 or more before tax and shipping, you start to earn a percentage of your order that you can spend on any products that are available!

The Hostess Code will be good for 30 days and every month I will choose a new product to giveaway. 

The hostess code is redeemed as you checkout.  On the lower left-hand side of your screen when you check out it asks you if you have a hostess code.  All you have to do is copy the code below and paste it where it goes and then hit apply!  Easy peasy :)

In order to help those of us who are visual learners, I created a video that walks you through the steps!  As always, if you have any questions, please just let me know!

Thanks,

Use this Hostess Code and be entered to win a gift bag punch board valued at $20! Code ends July 30th. (Please do not use the Hostess Code if your order is $150 or more).

Plan with Me-July Tab, July Monthly and June 29th-July 5th

Hi everyone!

I hope that you had a fantastic week!  I wasn't intending on planning so much for you today, but I did!  Of course, I am on vacation the week of the 29th-5th...so I didn't have much to plan, but I did have a lot of room to decorate :)

Let's start with the monthly tab!  


Honestly, one of the main reasons why I love Plum Paper is their monthly tabs.  The new ones are colored, but I know that I will still decorate them.  It makes me happy and I love flipping through the month and seeing this tab decorated and ready to go!

Of course, it's July and I wanted to go with a 4th of July theme. I really love how this turned out.  I used card stock stickers from Doodlebug.  I get my card stock stickers from A Cherry On Top.  Juts search card stock stickers.  They are a tiny bit thicker than regular stickers, but I don't mind.

It's looking to be a pretty slow month.  I know that will change somewhat, but work tends to slow down for the month of July and I don't mind that at all :)

Look at that Uncle Sam!!!!  Is he not the cutest thing ever?  Oh and those bomb pops make me sad that I can't have real sugar any more.  They are my absolute favorite.  The lemon in the middle makes my day!  The ants are cute.  If I were an ant, I would want some watermelon too.  Heck, I could go for some watermelon right now.

Finally, my week.  My new Plum Paper Horizontal Planner should ship this week and I am so stinking excited!!!!  

Other than that, not a whole lot to do.  I plan on spending this week relaxing and healing!  

Don't forget to enter the giveaway!  Good luck :)  You can find the Plan with me video over on youtube.  I'll add it here as soon as I am home and on the mend :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Saturdays with Stampin Up!

Happy Saturday everyone!

If I know me, I'm sleeping in and wondering when I can bust out of jail...aka the hospital!

I promise to update you as soon as I am home and settled!  In the meantime, let's talk about this gorgeous card using the image I watercolor on Wednesday. 

I absolutely love this stamp set.  I think this hydrangea is stunning and such a perfect image whether on a thinking about you card or a sympathy card.


If you remember from Wednesday, I watercolored the image using my pacific point and old olive ink pads. When deciding on a card base, I decided to go with the old olive.  I also felt that adding just a touch of the watermelon wonder dotted lace trim added just a hint of color without detracting from the focal image.


Let me know what you think.  I love how it turned out and hope that you did as well.  You can watch the video over on my youtube channel.  As soon as I am home and settled, I will add the video here.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
