A Sweet Soiree Calendar Kit for 2018

Happy New Year!  Thank you for stopping by and for being a part of my life this past year! Your comments are always appreciated and although time doesn’t allow me to respond every day, I want you to know that I read each and every one of them.  You fill my heart with joy and make me smile!

A new year means a new calendar!  I decided to use the beautiful Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper for my project today (available Jan. 3rd in the new Occasions Catalog).

Stampin Up Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper calendar/post it note holder - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I have made several stand up calendars in the past.  (You can view those HERE or HERE.)  I’ve also made different post it note holders. (You can click HERE or HERE to view.) I decided to combine the two for my desk this year. I absolutely love the silver foil accents, handpainted designs, and colorful printed images in the Sweet Soiree DSP! I used coordinating cardstock in Marina Mist and Flirty Flamingo. I can’t decide which one I like better!

How would you like to receive my “Sweet Soiree Calendar kit” to make one for yourself? Here’s two different ways you can get one:

  1. Place an order for $50 or more from my online store in January using the host code. I will send you a post it note/calendar kit and email you the directions and measurements so you can put your kit together and make more if you like. (*If you wait until January 3rd to order and you will earn a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift too!!)
  2. Order this month’s “Just Stampin’ Card Kit and 3D Project Buffet”.  *The post it note/calendar kit will be the 3D project included in this month’s kit.

Here’s how you can reserve your Just Stampin’ Card Kit Buffet to go:

Email me (j.stark@myactv.net) with “Just Stampin’ Kit Buffet” in the subject line. Include your full name, mailing address, and email address.  I will send you a PayPal invoice. Orders need to be placed by January 15th. (*Please note I can only accept a limited number of orders each month. I may reach my limit before January 15th.)

Monthly “Kit Buffet” TO GO cost:  $10 (plus shipping and handling)

Just Stampin’ Buffet TO GO Kits include:

  • Pre-cut supplies for four projects (stamped images not included, in accordance with Stampin’ Up! policy)
  • Envelopes for non 3D projects
  • Pre-punched items and/or Big Shot items, such as die cuts and textured embossed
  • Ribbon and/or embellishments

My “Kit Buffet TO GO!” is intended to make it easy for you to be able to see and try out different products while being able to substitute different stamps you already have. You don’t have to worry about having coordinating designer series paper to go with the cardstock, the right color ribbon to match, or other embellishments…everything is in the kit!  You just need to stamp and adhere. They are versatile to be able to use for different occasions!

If you have ordered my card kit buffet before, I would love for you to leave a comment. Here’s what others have said about my past kits:

Your kit arrived yesterday and I’ve had great fun putting it together. You did a terrific job!  I love the way everything coordinates (which is my biggest challenge) and the kit was so well organized with the pieces for the box all together neatly in a glassine envelope.  Such attention to detail!  

Your instructions were impeccable.  Your pictures were beautiful and a big help in putting everything together. Obviously I am very pleased. And I will be ordering again if you have future kits.    Thank you so much,
Deborah M

I haven’t had much time to craft lately but I did these in a jiffy and they are sooo cute. Thank you for offering this for us!

Please count me in! Besides being great cards, it’s the BEST value out there and I’d do this even if you charged more–your time is worth more than you are charging!
Thanks, Jeanie. Excited to see the new things you’ve come up with.

The kit includes supplies for 3 cards and a 3D project. I will send you an email when your kit is shipped (the end of January). It will include an attachment with the project samples, supplies, and directions. You can substitute different stamps and sentiments using what you have or just copy my samples.

I love to spoil my customers and they have been enjoying my card kits and 3D projects at classes and/or when they place an online order. I love to send out card kits and/or treats for orders placed with me. You can get a “thank you” card kit for FREE with an online purchase using the hostess code. (*See below for the current hostess code.)

WCMD Swap Showcase…Part 1

Yesterday I shared with you my swap for World Card Making Day in Atlanta. I sell my cards at a local shop to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.  For the first time I am extending the offer to you, my blog readers. If you would like to purchase one (or more) of these desk calendars, please email me (j.stark@myactv.net). The cost is $4.00 (plus 50 cents shipping).  These make great gifts for teachers, hairdressers, coworkers, or just about anybody.  Click on the photo below to see yesterday’s post with a close up of each one.

2017 Desk Calendars

I swapped 50 of my desk calendars and got 50 different cards in return.  While I was in Atlanta I was able to visit with my daughter and celebrate her birthday. Today is her actual birthday so I thought I would share the birthday cards I received in the swap!
