The specials are just TOO TEMPTING!

If you have been tempted by either of the special promotions that won't begin until May 9 (I have!!!) then possibly we will want to wait to place our TECH Squad order on May 9. I can be sure that it gets in before business hours on the the 9th, so it will get packed that day (I hope) and be here no later than Wednesday, May 14! If it comes by the 14th, I believe I can get it delivered before I leave on vacation!
If you don't want to wait, I can place two orders, but we will want to make sure we can maximize the orders to get the best deal on shipping and awards!

Your memories have met their "match!"

The Angel Company has created a Limited Edition stamp set "True Wealth" to be included in a special Pemberly Bay Matchbook promotion. In this package you will receive a Pemberley Bay Matchbook Kit (retail $8.95) True Wealth stamp set pictured below (Retail price $19.95) and a Rockin' Roxie Matchbook Kit (retail $8.95) - all for the unbelievable price of $28.90! This special will be available May 9 - June 16 only! Such a deal!

May 08 promotion!

During 2007, this bright and beautiful Class Soar With It Collection, Bella Flor, was retired from the TAC catalogue. While supply last it is returning as a May 2008 Special promotion. It's regular price was $19.95, but while the supply lasts it will be priced at $10.00. That's amazing for this beautiful collection, perfect for Mother's Day or Spring projects. Be sure to order it at TECH Squad on May 7, so you can have this beautiful palette to play with!

New promotions for May!

Another new set of "Big on Fun Limited Edition" sets - these stamp sets are smaller than the originals, but on $2.95 per set with a qualifying purchase of $30. They will be available beginning May 9! If someone at TECH really wants them I can wait to place your order on May 9, but it may or may NOT arrive in time for delivery before I leave for vacation (on May 17)! They are available through June 16, so we can also get them at the June TECH Squad day!

I am pleased with my progress

I have my Family Frame class ready to go - just waiting for my 3 friends at 1:00 p.m. next Wed., April 30 (Diana, Cathie, & Karen) and my 5 friends at 5:30 p.m. (Lynn, Mary, Kathy, Kim & Beckie) to come on out for the fun!

I also stayed up LATE last night after class and worked on kits for TECH Squad on May 7 - I have designed all the cards, finished cutting kits. All that's left is to organize the supplies, but that has to wait until after Saturday's crop at Copperas Cove High School, and also has to wait until after the class on Wednesday.

But I'm amazed ... I'm usually working on kits the day before! Can't wait to share these fun SCOR-PAL projects with you. Please remember, if you have a Scor-Pal bring it along to TECH Squad on May 7. You will enjoy the projects so much more if you don't have to wait to use a Scor-pal. Also bring adhesive for your card-making! We will be doing 5 samples, 3 finished cards, and a folder to carry it all home!

See you soon! poki

Birthday List Journal class TODAY

The class for the Birthday List Journal is today at 5:30 p.m.
April 23 5:30 p.m. - Jacque J, Lynn C, Kathy G, Kim F, Mary S, Diana K

Don't forget the Crop at Copperas Cove High School on Saturday, April 26! See upcoming events on right side for contact information!

Heather came out on Saturday to do the Family Frame - I really like the look with the die cut word! And I'm happy to report that Mike was able to find the acrylic frame pieces at the Home Depot at Howard Lane in Austin (down the street from the Dell Factory where he works) so I now have enough pieces for the class on April 30. Both the Killeen store and the Temple store were OUT OF STOCK. If he hadn't found them yesterday, I would be spending Thursday doing a tour of Home Depot stores between here and Austin! (and that are lots of things that I would RATHER do!)
April 30 1:00 p.m. Cathie H, Diana K, Karen B
April 30 5:30 p.m. Beckie H, Lynn C, Kathy G, Kim F, Mary S

Are you out there?

I was hoping my friends and customers had been reading my blog, and would come up with the "words to know" on April 9. Sad to say no one did!!! I have all those great PRIZES I made just going to waste!

I passed out an information sheet to my participants yesterday with some links to Angel Company sites that might be of interest to my customers. For those who didn't make it, I am posting the list here as well. Be sure to check out these great project pages:

Spring Supplement - it shows all the stamps sets and the project card ideas. (If you have trouble downloading the card pages, e-mail poki to have them wing your way!)

Savvy Projects - This is Michelle Smith's bog (she is owner of The Angel Company) She has been posting some great projects and ideas lately!

Demonstrator Contest winners - The Angel Company hosts a contest every month for demonstrators, although we prefer to be called "Angels." Contest winners are posted here:

Featured Art Work - more great project ideas using TAC product.

We were "showered" with flower projects

I had a great time sharing my flower projects with the TECH Squad yesterday. I really appreciate the customers who came out on such a dreary day! I hope your day was brightened with the flowers. It was fun!
Orders were completed about 9:30 this morning, and the product should be winging it's way to us shortly! I will get it delivered as quickly as I can.
I've started making decisions about which of the many ideas I've found for the scor-pal we will be completing on May 7. I will need you to bring your scor-pal with you when you come to TECH Squad on May 7. I will be checking with participants to see who has the tool, so I will know how many I will need to borrow from friends who have them, so that everyone can work at the same time. I have found some really fun projects and samples for us to create! Hope you can join us!

Limited Edition Special - starts Monday, April 7

We have new LIMITED EDITION sets of stamps which TAC will begin selling on Monday, April 7 (TECH SQUAD participants will be eligible for these! )

With a qualifying $30 purchase you can buy one, two or all four of the special stamps at $2.95 per set.
