Happy  Friday!

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ready to enjoy the holiday season with some shopping.  Well, Stampin’ Up! is having their annual Online Extravaganza but it’s different this year.  Instead of just a few products on sale, they’ve opted to have just about everything in the Annual Catalog on sale for 10% off.  There are some exclusions so read the exclusions carefully.  I shared all the details yesterday and in case you missed it you can read about here.  BUT, I thought that I’d dedicate this post to the sale that starts today and I’m sharing the Excel spreadsheet and the Shopping Strategies here again.  I highly recommend that you read the strategies to get some insight on some things you might not have known before.

This 2 day sale is all about Paper and Embellishments:

Here’s a link that includes the items and the page numbers and well as some of the exclusions:Extravaganza Day1

Ordering Deadline – November 24, 11:50 PM (MT), 12:50 AM CST


Just some thoughts on how to develop your shopping strategy to make the most of Online Extravaganza:

  • Pull out your 2018 Annual Catalog, dust it off and look at your Wish List
  • I recommend you print out the Excel Spreadsheets I included in this blog post as you go through the catalog.  I’m visual, I need to see the stuff.
  • Take a quick inventory of what you need to restock your craft stash (cardstock, ink, Stampin’ Blends, adhesives, reinkers, acrylic blocks).
  • Identify stamp sets and dies and punches you may have overlooked or not yet purchased, (remember bundles are excluded but you can buy them at 10% off so it’s the same discount.)
  • Make a list and identify which day you need to order them because each sale is divided into different product category.  Today & tomorrow it’s on paper and embellishments.
  • Place an order on the day of the sale.  You might have to break up your wish list into 3 separate orders.
  • 10% off an order over $69.50 (in the USA) is basically FREE SHIPPING.  Did you know that?  Any time you place an order less than $69.50 you’ll pay a minimum $6.95 shipping & handling charge, but once your order is $69.50 or more your shipping and handling charges are 10%.
  • Please include the following Host Code: QMJV72WX and you will receive a handstamped card with a freebie. If your order is $150 (before tax & shipping) YOU earn Host Rewards!  Host Rewards are free stuff and you still receive my Freebie.
  • If you want to take advantage of more than one sale, you’ll have to place more than one order (and that’s good for me too). 

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you find some amazing shopping deals and enjoy your Thanksgiving leftovers.  (I love Thanksgiving leftovers – my scale, not so much!)
