I Have Discovered Stampin' Up!

I started ordering with Kay in November, and have joined her stamp club. I have to spend a minimum of $20 a month, and everyone who participates gets to share in the hostess benefits! I have an Excel spreadsheet with my wish list, the total is only $2800.00!!! Hey, a girl can dream right? If it is ok with you, I would like to share what I have ordered in the last few months....
I ordered Season of Friendship and Season of Simple Grace.

I ordered 8.5x11 In Color cardstock, and the Sizzlets Button Die #5

I ordered the Blender Pens, 12x12 Textured In Color cardstock. The cs ended up being $3 less, so since I had already paid, I added the sanding blocks which were the same price as the discount.
I ordered Bella Rose pp, and Good Morning Sunshine pp. Tigardlilly got the Rockabilly Specialty pp, and we split that and the Good Morning Sunshine paper. I gotta tell you, all this paper is so much more awesome than it looks in the catalog!!! YUMMY!
I was hostess this month. It is Sale-A-Bration time, and I didn't get to spend at least $50 to earn free stuff, but since the total sales for the show were over $300, I got a Sale-A-Bration item. Being the paper whore that I am, I went with the Delicate Dots pp.
As far as hostess stuff, I chose A Little Somethin' for my stamp set.
I also earned $35 to spend as hostess. I cnose the spiral punch, scallop border punch, and the ticket corner punch, with a dollar to spare!
That is all for my 4 months with Stampin' Up! I get to spend $20 a month on scrappy stuff, and this is where I am spending it, well plus S&H. As part of my sacrifice, I am using glue sticks as my main adhesive. It sucks and is messy, but it works. UHU glue sticks from the dollar store, yeah baby...NOT!!
I am already planning at least 2 blog posts, so be prepared in the near future!!

I just have to say... You Rock!!!! LOL

I know what you mean about the paper. I ordered the Rockabilly too. That stuff is to die for! Can you tell me how you did the product photo thing? I tried for 3 hours yesterday to figure it out then gave up. :(

Oh and I got a little somethin' for ya today at craft warehouse. I'm going to go play bingo tomorrow night with the moms group so I will drop it by on the way. Your gonna like it!!!

Oh, you got some great stuff. Being the paper whore too, I am in envy of you. I don't know a stampin' up rep around here. I would love to see their stuff but then again I would probably spend way too much.

Your $20 limit is very manageable but I am not sure I could tolerate glue sticks for very long... :(
