New Sale a Bration Items have been added!!

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – New Sale a Bration Items have been added!!

Well this was unexpected!

I woke up this morning and checked the demonstrator updates to find that 8 products from the main catalogues have been added for the last 11 days! (details towards the bottom!)

I would suspect this is because the US market have sold out of Glimmer Paper and Tins already. Fortunately in Europe we have a different warehouse and our own stock levels. But it’s definitely a While Stocks Last thing. When they’re gone, they’re gone…..

I wasn’t expecting this, so I’m sharing an impromptu blog post for you. And thought this was a great time to share our news! At long last, we have exchanged contracts on our house sale and we have a move date of March 31st, yes, that’s a week on Friday!

So currently I’m sat blogging like crazy! Last week I created and filmed 24 3D video projects to tide me (and you all!) over until the end of May. As you may or may not know, I fly out to Amsterdam 5 days after moving house and when I return, the boys are off school for another 9 days before starting brand new schools in brand new areas.

There’s also the likelihood that I won’t have unpacked the house before I head to Holland, and I need to redecorate my new office before I move in….

So I decided to take the whole of April off from the crafting side of my business. This means I’m still free to work with my team, and chat with you all, but without having to craft under time pressure in a room not yet set up for my needs.   I also like to work ahead of the game, and I have a business trip in the middle of May, so I’ve worked ahead to cover that too!

Therefore, 24 video projects and 24 card projects were needed. And I did it! Wow, I had the best time last week! head down, craft supplies surrounding me and it was as though I was mainlining creativity directly from an IV drip into my arteries!!!

So as I type, I’m in the midst of blogging ahead (41 down, 27 to go!) before shutting down for a week to close down the house and move next week!

Anyway, I came here to share our new goodies, so hold fire, I’m linking it all up!

And our Exclusive SAB items are here (please note, I’ve only included English and Clear Mount versions – French and German and Wood are available!)

    I feel a bit like Judith , exhausted reading your blog. Thank you for doing all this to maintain our love of your blogs and projects.
    Sam Can I ask if I may Case your slender egg creations?
    I had made some for my own use and a customer saw them and asked if we could make them, so before I said yes I explained that I needed to ask you.
    Best wishes for everything.

    That is fantastic. Good Luck with your move. WOW you were a busy bee, doing all that for your fans 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you created. I love all of your projects and so much appreciate you sharing them. With regards to what Rosalie asked about casing your projects, I didn’t know we had to get permission first, is it ok to make the same things that you make?

  6. I almost hesitate to add a comment to your blog – soon you will have a gob of those to read and you are already too busy! We do appreciate your conscientious-ness – but if it gets too much (I think the absolute worst thing in the world is moving – I’d rather go to the dentist), feel free to announce your are going into hiding for a couple weeks – we don’t want you to get sick, or to view communicating with us as too much of a burden! See you on the other side of all these tasks1
