Pootles 12 Deals of Christmas

Yay, it’s back! The 12 Deals of Christmas from the last 3 years have been so popular that I couldn’t not bring it back to you again this year….!

Details are down at the bottom…!

Just a quick note to let you know that the Stampin’ Up! Websites are down globally. I guess flooded a bit with everyone wanting to shop and join. So if you were wondering if it was you and your computer, please don’t panic, it’s not!! As soon as they’re live again, I will put up a new blog post.

I do love a good storage solution, and when you get new pretties like the Watercolour Pencils, you have to find a pretty way to show them off and also make sure that you use them!

I’m the kind of crafter that if I can’t see something, I forget to remember to use it *stares at embossing folders that are actually tucked out of sight*. So when I got the pencils which have great packaging, I knew that I needed to get them out of their little box and onto my desk.

Step forward a tall box with room for more (anyone else hoping that these are such a huge success, that Stampin’ Up! brings out more???)

But as ever, you don’t need to have this box just for pencils, you could pop some treats inside and top with some pretty tissue paper for a gift perhaps?

Have a fabulous Wednesday everyone!

12 Deals of Christmas.

So, what’s this all about? Well, I don’t do sales, and I don’t do discounts. In my professional opinion, Stampin’ Up! offers the best quality products at the best prices around (and with over 10 years crafting experiences, trust me, I’ve tried ‘em all!). So you won’t ever see me offering to reduce the prices of products, or sharing my discount. But what I want to do, as a one off, just for Christmas, is offer 12 extra goodies that go into the regular Thank You Gift Pack that I send out to all my customers.

Each ‘deal’ will only be available for the stated day, and will vary in price, product and value.

I get an immediate email notification of all orders that come in, so you don’t need to worry about getting in touch, or emailing to say you want to take advantage of the deal, I’ll send it out automatically. 

Please note, if you select NO CONTACT, I cannot, by law, send you anything. Please make sure that you deselect that button….

Today’s Deal is –

All orders over £200 will receive a Brand New Double Take Stamp Set worth £31.50 from me, as well as their regular Thank You Gift Pack. It will come direct from me, as this is an offer direct from me. It will not come with the order you place. If you use the hostess code for the month, it will still count for Both!

Fine Print. This is not a catch, there is no single winner, this is not a competition. Please do not add it to your order, (unless of course you want duplicates!) as I will be sending this separately.

All Thank You Gift Packs will be posted after the 12 Deals of Christmas have finished.

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!

  1. Quickest box I’ve ever made. It’s great. I don’t have the dsp yet so stamped all over. I’d love a lid for this Sam to use for a treat box or other things. I might try making one but not very good at that. You should do some classes/videos on how to figure out how to make boxes.

    Tank You very much – WOW it’s so beautiful (une très belle boîte). I love your projects

  3. Have been a blog subscriber I think almost from the beginning. You are incredibly talented and are so willing to share your ideas, tips, techniques and so much more. Congratulations for having such a successful year, you have earned it. Have a great year – coming all the way from Texas!

    Beautiful box, love it. How pretty to have that sitting on your desk. I’ll be making them for sure 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing your talent. I have loved your bags, boxes and projects and have made quite a few of them.

  5. Very nice, one day I’m going to make all the little storage pieces for my craft room. Now that I’m done with the holidays, I need to get in there and clean up and get back to some organizing. This will be one thing to make, need something for my pencils. Thanks!

    Sam, you are so funny. You make me laugh. I love your videos and have learned a lot from watching them. Thanks for being there upbeat gal you are and for sharing your ideas. Love this box although I may make mine a bit shorter so as I have to sharpen the pencils, I can still tell what color they are. . Toni, Spanish Fork, Utah
