“Awesome” Cards for a Cause

Good morning from my Paper Room.

I wanted to share a card with you that I recently created as a make-and-take fundraiser at my New Catalog Open House.  Our fundraising recipient was a local hero, Bryon Snyder.  Here is a cut and paste of his story, from the fundraising site.

“Bryon Snyder was shot today at a gas station in Topeka Kansas. Bryon was a customer at the gas station,when a girl was trying to escape a man. He held the door so the man could not get to her, he was shot in the heart, lung and liver. Also was hit on the thumb which may not be repairable. He is in the hospital where he had surgery and is currently in critical condition.

He has a wife Ashley, and three beautiful children Braylynn, Ashton and Carson.”

While I do not know Bryon personally, he has several connections with friends of mine, and I was very happy to help out!  Also, I am very happy to report that Bryon did survive, and is out of the hospital, but will have life long issues and medical bills from this heroic gesture.   Fortunately, the shooter was arrested and charged, awaiting trial.  Any help you can give would be appreciated.  Every dollar adds up!

Thru my card, and my AWESOME customers and friends, we raised $68 on this make-and-take as well as some other kits I was offering.  I will be sending the family a $75 check this week, which just warms my heart.  I joined Stampin’ Up as a hobby demo just over 6 months ago.   I am thrilled that I am now doing a card club and events that allows be to give back to my community while working with such an AWESOME company as Stampin’ Up!   Without further ado, here is my card… as promised a few days ago, with our AWESOME Big Shot and Bundle Special, I did use the Big Shot, Banner Framelits, and three coordinating embossing folders to make this card.   The version we used at the event was all done with the Blackberry Bliss and another color option, so that we were only dealing with one ink color!!!  Best idea EVER!! lol


Have you tired of the word AWESOME yet?  Now you see where it comes from.  PERFECT sentiment for this!  See the very bottom of this post  for all of the AWESOME Stampin’ Up items used to make this card.   AND… don’t forget about our Big Shot and Bundle Special, and if you order thru me using Hostess Code RUZQUPRU, and I sell a minimum of three during the month of August, everyone that bought one will be in a drawing for a Magnetic Platform to use with their new Big Shot!!!  This is an AWESOME accessory, valued at $39.95!!

“Had to be a Big Shot…”

Growing up, and attending high school in the early 80’s, Billy Joel was a fave of mine!  Big Shot was one of my favorite songs.  Of course this sound would come to mind with our “Big Shot” Promo!!  Click here for song lyrics 🙂

But for me… it does HAVE TO BE A BIG SHOT!  No other tool compares!  Here is a link to yesterday’s post.  However, I wanted to show you these updated flyers, which show great pictures of the Big Shot deal and bundles you can get during the month of August!  AND… if I sell at least THREE Big Shots in the month of August, everyone that purchases one will be entered into a drawing for a Magnetic Platform, which is $39.95 if you were to purchase it!  To be part of this drawing, you must use Hostess Code RUZQUPRU when placing your order. 



And… if you have been considering signing up as a demonstrator, either for for a little extra cash, or just for a “hobby” discount, this might be a good time for YOU to join my team.   For $99 sign up fee you get business supplies as well as YOUR CHOICE of $125 in product!! AND… within 45 days you can place an order for $150 or more and get 30% off (10% more then our normal commission!). So… if you were to do this early in August, you could place your first order by August 30th, purchase the Big Shot & Bundle Special for $99 AND get that 30% savings!!!!  This opportunity is not for everyone, but if you were considering it, and you want a Big Shot, this is a GREAT time!!! I would love to have you on my team!

Let me know if you have ANY questions, on any of the above info.

Creatively Yours… Bobbi






August Specials… And a Favorite Day of Mine!

Welcome to my Paper Room.

Today is August 1st, a very special day to me, as it is the day my mom and dad got married 44 years ago!  You see, my mom was widowed with three kids at the time, and she married my dad when I was 3 1/2 years old.  LUCKY US!  We got an amazing man, that completed an amazing family!  I still have the little gloves I wore at the ceremony, the day my sis and I told everyone we were getting married!!  Happy Anniversary to the best parents a girl could wish for!!  Dad, you changed our lives, and I cannot imagine a better outcome for mom and us three children.  To celebrate, my brother will be in town with his kids, and we will enjoy a picnic and paddle boats at a local lake!

DSCN1493Pretty sweet, huh???

Ok… enough about that.  NOW, let me tell you why this a great day for you as well!!!

Today is the official start of our Stampin’ Up Big Shot Promo!!  A Big Shot is a tool that does AMAZING things.  Watch this video, and you will understand. 

We have so many products that work with this amazing tool, from Bigz and Original Dies and Embossing Folders, to Framelits, Edgelits, Embosslits, and Thinlits!!  And what it really great, is that these all coordinate with the rest of the products in the SU! line!

So… you have waited long enough.  Here is the August Customer Special.  Purchase this all around amazingly cool tool for $99.95, and then choose one of the following bundles for FREE!!!!!!!  Yep, I said FREE!!!    OR… if you are already the proud owner of a Big Shot, these limited time bundles can be purchased at a 15% savings.  We didn’t want to leave anyone out on this special offer!!  Note, that this offer includes a stamp set called Bright and Beautiful that is part of our Holiday Catalog that is not even available for normal order until August 28th!!  I know this might be kind of hard to see, so don’t hesitate to contact me with ANY questions.


AS AN ADDED BONUS, if I sell at least three Big Shots during the month of August, I will be drawing for one person to win the Magnetic Platform, which is a must have Big Shot Accessory if you are using Framelits and Coordinating Stamp Sets!!  This is a $39.95 value that I will be giving away.

Ok… that is all I have for now, but be sure to check back often, as EVERY project I share this month will have something made with my Big Shot.   Let me know when you are ready to order yours.   Keep in mind… a $150 party gets $25 Hostess Credits, so this might be something you want to consider when you order.
