Pootles’ News update!

Pootles’ News update!

join Stampin' Up!

Quick Thursday afternoon update.

Quite a few people have got in touch with me recently to say that they’re not getting the email notification from my blog anymore. I’m a bit clueless as to why this has happened, so I’ve asked the lovely lady who manages the behind-the-scenes-stuff on my blog to check into it for me.

I can see that there are a lot less views on the blog than normal, so hopefully this will be rectified asap.

stampin up weekly deals

A quick update to let you know that the new Weekly Deals have gone live as of yesterday. They’re no longer on a limited time basis at the weekly deal price. The price you see is good for a whole week through until the end of each Tuesday.  To see them (including the Envelope Punch Board!) please click here.

New Joiners to my team can take advantage of the new Autumn/Winter seasonal catalogue in their starter kits. If you’re interested in joining and taking advantage of getting your hands on all the goodies a month ahead of everyone else, let me know!

While we’re talking catalogues, I do have a stack of Annual Catalogues here, in English, French and German. So if you’d like one please let me know.

In respect of the new seasonal catalogue, I will be sending these out for free to all my customers towards the end of August. However, if you’re new to me and would like one, please email me with your full name and address and I shall make sure to add you to the list!  Please title the email ‘New Catalogue Please Sam!!’ (


Pootles Hostess Code Club

I have a hostess code that is live for each month. The benefit to using the code is that every person who uses it will get a portion of the Stampin’ Rewards and I share that out between everyone, choosing a fabulous product from the catalogue for each person. In June, I sent out 30 stamp sets and in July I sent out 44 products!  To learn more about the hostess code club, please read Here

Paper Shares - The Glimmers, The Foils, The Everything You Needs....! Get a bit of everything for 1/4 of the full size price

Finally, the August paper shares are now open for all 3 offerings. The closing date to order these is August 19th, just under 2 weeks from now.

You can see the Background Shares HERE, the DSP Shares HERE and the Paper Basics Shares HERE!

I think that’s it for now, I’m getting back onto the blog as I have a lot of writing to do before we head off on our holidays next week!

I hope you enjoyed this project, please do use the hostess code to get free product! (hostess code shown in the top right of my blog for the current one!) Learn more HERE. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code as You become the hostess and get the Rewards!
