News and Updates!



Happy Sunday afternoon everyone! I thought I’d bob by with some bits of news and some updates for you.

Pootles Colour Challenge

Okay, so the weekly Challenge blog is going well, but a few of you have asked for a few extra days. So from Next Saturday, the weekly challenge blog will have through until Friday lunchtime (GMT) before it closes off. That’s an extra 2.5 days! Hopefully that will give more of you a chance to enter.

A number of people have also said that they don’t have a blog so how can they link their project. You can do it by using your facebook page or profile. Simply open the photo as a page on it’s own and copy and paste the URL into the InLinkz add button.

Next up, the product shares that I have had on offer for the last few weeks are coming to an end next week on July 31st. That will be the last day that you can purchase shares for the time being. Don’t miss out if you want to get a bit of all the papers/ribbons/enamel shapes but at a much lesser price! Details are HERE



The Bonus Days and Coupon Codes also come to an end on July 31st. If you’re unsure what these are, in short, when you spend quantities of £45/€60 you get a voucher for £4.50/€6 that you can redeem between August 2nd and 31st. These are great to collect up (yes, I’ve collected a fair few of them!) and use in August to get your summery bits and pieces! More info HERE

Thoughtful Branches

Finally, social media is a wonderful place for sharing and many of you have spotted a bundle that Stampin’ Up! will be offering very soon. It’s called Thoughful Branches and includes a die set as well as the stamp set. It is only available for one month, between August 2nd and 31st and is absolutely gorgeous.

As soon as it’s live, I will be posting on here!!!

Anyway, have a great Sunday afternoon, I’m heading to the phones to do some one to one calls with my team! See you soon.

    Noticed that you no longer do South Hills/Stampin’ Up Sundays anymore. How come?

    • Rebecca V. says:

      Hi, Ilena. I hope you don’t mind me jumping in here, but I thought I’d help you out with your question. Sam had to stop being a consultant for South Hills because they had been bought out by a parent company who also sold paper and papercrafting-type items. So, it was a conflict of interest for her because she is a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator (and it went against her contract with SU). Hope this helps! And, I’m with you…I used to love those Sunday combo videos!
