Creating With Stamps! Incentive - August - Simply Shammy

August 2018 Host Code

Each month I have a Host Code that you will use in my online store while ordering. Above is the Host Code for August. 

Here's how to use your code:

All of these order totals are before tax and shipping.

When you place an order of:

  • $30.00 you earn that month's PDF - you can pick from past PDF's if you'd rather, but place an order of:
  • $50.00 you earn the PDF and a Creating With Stamps! Rewards Point, but place an order of: 
  • $75.00 you earn the PDF, the Creating With Stamps! Rewards Point, and the August Creating With Stamps! Incentive goodie (see below).  Goodies do not come on with your order. They are ordered on the first of the following month, shipped to me, and then sent to you with a special enclosure from me.
  • As always, if you are ordering $150.00 or more, you will NOT use my code (this way you will earn your own Hostess Benefits), but you WILL still earn the PDF, Creating With Stamps! Rewards Point, and the monthly goodie!


This month's Creating With Stamps! Incentive goodie is the awesome new Simply Shammy!

Simply Shammy

This reusable stamp cleaning cloth makes stamp cleaning effortless. Just add water, then wipe stamps on the shammy. Durable, thick shammy easily cleans ink from narrow grooves. No lint, no chemicals—just clean! (Ink will stain shammy but won’t transfer to your fingers or other stamps.) With its portable 5" x 7" (12.7 x 17.8 cm) size it fits neatly in a stamp case.

I love that all I have to do is rinse with water, wring it out, and I'm ready to go again!

Value $8.00 before tax and shipping.

Have a great month, and thanks for stopping in!
