Simply Sentiments Thursday and a Change to Customer Rewards!

Happy Thursday to ya!  How is everyone doing?  Im just Peachy (yep, a Georgia Girl!)  As you may have seen from the title of this post, there has been a change to the Customer Rewards Program and it is a doosey!  NO MORE Emails for your free items!  How sweet is that!  Now, this does require manual work on my part, but you ladies are so worth it!  Let me explain how it works then we will get on to the sentiment releases for this week!

REWARDS POINTS:

This is the new system.  How it works is that for every $3.00 you spend in the shop you receive a Reward Point.  These points add up to discounts and free items.  You earn your first completely Free Digi at 9 Reward Points. (which is roughly equal to 3 stamps at $3.00 each and lower than the original customer rewards)  BUT, you can start redeeming them as early as 3 Rewards Points ($1.00 off)  AND you can redeem up to 100, yes I said 100 Rewards Points at one time!  Now before everyone goes asking, I have prepared a list of Questions and Answers for you so that hopefully this will explain the Program to you and answer any questions that may come up.


REWARDS POINTS!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

What are Rewards Points?  Rewards Points are a reward for shopping at Floppy Latte’s Digital Designs!

Can I redeem points from my order on that same order?  No, the points don't roll over until after the paid order is cleared through paypal and I transfer the pending points to earned points.  They can, however be used on the next order if you have accumulated at least 3 points!

What can I do with Reward Points?  You can redeem reward points for discounts and free items at Floppy Latte’s Digital Designs Shop.

Some images have different rewards points.  Why is that?  Rewards Points are based on the dollar value of the image.  Example:  a $3.00 image earns 1 Reward Point, a $12.00 set earns 4 Rewards Points.  Each dollar is worth .33 Rewards Points.

I just made a paid purchase and don’t see my points?  What Happened?  Rewards points have to be transferred manually after the sale has cleared Paypal.  It may take up to 24 hours  for them to post to your account.

My purchase price is not divisible by 3 evenly, what happened to the remainder points?  The remainder points are held until they reach 1.0 then are transferred to your points earned.  This is done automatically for you.

Products less than $3.00 don't show reward points.  Are they still eligible? Yes, they are.  They don't show the points because they don't quite equal 1 Reward  Point.  The fraction is added to your account automatically and converted when the fractional amount is equal to or greater than 1.0.  Example  A sentiment for $1.50 is worth .5 Reward Points.   If you purchase 2 $1.50 sentiments you will earn 1 Reward Point.  Each dollar is equal to .33 Reward Points.  You will see the accumulated pending rewards points on the sidebar in your shopping cart.  As your total goes up, so does the points.  They will be moved over to Earned as soon as the order clears Paypal and I move the pending points!

When can I redeem my rewards points?  Once you have reached a balance of 3 rewards points you may start redeeming them.

How many rewards points can I redeem at once?  You may redeem up to 100 reward points at any one time.

How do I redeem my rewards points?  At checkout you will see a Rewards Point Redemption box along with a dollar value and # of reward points available.  If you have a balance of 3 or more reward points you may begin redeeming them.  Simply type in the number of rewards points you would like to redeem and a corresponding dollar value will be deducted from your rewards points balance.  Example:   3 Rewards Points equal $1.00, 6 Rewards Points =$2.00 and so on.  9 Rewards Points will earn you a $3.00 digital stamp free!

I checked out with a free product but did not see any reward points added to my account.  Reward Points are only calculated on paid purchases.

I made a paid purchase and used a coupon.  My points don’t add up to what pending points shows.  Rewards Points are based on the actual purchase, after coupons and discounts.  Example:  a $3.00 purchase minus a $1.00 coupon equals a $2.00 Paid Purchase.  You would only receive .666 reward points for that purchase. 

I bought a $5.00 Gift Certificate and didn’t get any rewards points.  Reward Points are not calculated on Gift Certificates.  They are stored in a separate section of the store and are not calculated like regular digi products.

Im a new customer and just bought 1 single stamp, how did I get 3 Rewards Points? Every New customer receives 3 additional Rewards Points after their first paid purchase, no matter the value, as a welcoming gift to Floppy Latte’s Digital Designs.



This system works wayyyy better than having to email me and me having to manually go through the 500 orders I get every week to figure out who has earned a free stamp.  This way you get rewarded each and every time you shop!  Better for me, better for you.  My poor fingers and brain get a work out as it is!  This will free up a bit more time for me to put more images in the shop for you!

Customer Rewards Points began to accumulate in your account if you have made a paid order since 8/28/2012.  It is impossible for me to go back and review all of the old orders and coupons as they fall out of the system after 90 days.  If you feel that you have earned a free digi, please please send me an email and I will research it and get back to you.

Soooo, what do you think?  Now, I have tested this out and it appears to be working as it should.  The only caveat is that I have to manually add the points over to earned as you shop.  This is not an issue as I see each and every invoice when it comes in.  So it may take a few minutes to a few hours for your earned points to show up.  Please allow me 24 hours to get them moved over.  This is due to a pay pal issue in the program that I have no control over!  It is wayyyy easier to press keys to transfer a day's orders at a time than it is to do it the way I'm doing it now.  Second Caveat:  You MUST be signed in to see your Earned Rewards Point Balance!

Now on to the Simply Sentiments Thursday New Releases!
Glitterbabe has been busy!





Now how about some eye candy from the most fabulously talented Glitterbabe (she is on a roll!)


I love this one! Fruit bowls are one of my faves!


Elegant and oh so Christmas-y!



This flower digi is one my son, Eddie personally wanted me to draw so it is titled appropriately, Eddie's Favorite Flowers!  Thanks Stef for making it into such a pretty, pretty Card!  Ed said he loved it!  Especially the black! (One of that boy's favorite colors)!


Just a little reminder!  The Sentiments, priced usually at $1.50, wont show any reward points but they are there, it is just that it won't show anything less than 1 and they are only set at .5, so they will accumulate as you shop!  No worries!

We do hope you have enjoyed the sentiments and eyecandy!  Look for us again on Friday, for the New September Exclusive Kit and Coupon release!

Have a wonderful week!

Manic Monday - PICK YOUR FREEBIE WEEK, New Releases, and other What Nots!

UPDATE:
The coupon code MMAUG27 is working now.  

Oh its Manic Monday Time again!  Love those Mondays!  So much going on, so much to do.....and then there is the regular Monday Morning Work Rush, Laundry, cleaning, feed the dog, feed the cats, do the jog/walk (im working my way up to running a 5 k sometime in the future!), pack the lunch, fix the dinner, pick the movie,do the dishes, and paying the bills.  Its a rough life being a domestic/working goddess but hey, someone has to do it.  You would think that there would be a tax break for us gals....Sadly nope.  So on that note, I wanna show off some of the new products this week!  Yep, summer's ending so I thought I would finish up a few flowers for ya, while the sale is still on!  Flowers are so Year-Round, for lots of great craft ideas!  Ok, so, here you go!

Three Blossoms

Slender Beauty

Pretty Bristles

Oh The Blooms:

Framed and Fabulous:


Pretty Pretty Flowers!  Great for CAS (there you go Stef!  Just for you!)

All of the New Products can be found in the New Products Link on the left sidebar of the shop.


And Presenting the New Paisley Monogram Alpha Set,  as A made her debut Last Thursday, I will give you a look at B and C!


Now all of the letters fall in the same pattern.  And the entire set is available as a single download as well, as well as a coupon for 20% off a pack of 6 (your choice). That coupon code is PAISLEYMONO6PK Now, if you all like these, I will start to work on the next patterned set, ohhhh, mix and match!!!!!!!!!! How cool would that be! And I am thinking of a way to get them to you faster! But I have to work the bugs out first!

Now, let's have a look at some lovely samples by Glitterbabe!  Oh and Come September, we will be adding our new Product Designers to our eyecandy!  You still have time to apply, just check the sticky post at the top of the blog for all the Deets!

Now On to Glitterbabe's Creations with some of this week's New Releases!

I simply love the embossing on this one!  And the colors are perfect!  Great job oh Glitzy one!


And this one is simply stunning!  It came out so nice!  Glitterbabe, you sure can pick the color combos!  It makes a striking card!

I am feeling a tad better, back to the jog/walks, as I stated earlier!  I want to run a 5 K with my lovely sister Erin in Florida soon so I have to get up to speed so to speak LOL!  Im up to a mile and a half, so only a mile and a half to go!  Not bad for just starting out!

So, ok, you have been paitent, (a quality that I simply do not have lol!) so this week your Manic Monday Freebie is "PICK YOUR FREEBIE" WEEK!!!!!!!  Simply pick any single stamp, except for the Paisley Monogram Alphas (or shop around and pick up like a dozen!) and enter code MMAUG27 into the first redemption box and $3.00 will be deducted from your order.  The Pick Your Freebie coupon code WILL NOT WORK on the Paisley Monogram Alphas at this time as it is such a huge release.  
Also please note that there is no download link here in the blog or the Newsletter.  You must log into the shop to get the freebie.  For those of you that are worried about your private information, you can simply use  ficitional information for all entries except your email address.  Please be advised that you will not be able to actually purchase any other stamps/paperpacks with this ficticious information as paypal won't process it correctly.  Just a little bit of info for ya!


*********************************************************************************
THIS IS THE PART I REALLY HATE TO HAVE TO PUT IN HERE.

Now, there is one thing I need to repeat.  If you are only getting the freebie, please please only put one stamp in your cart that is valued at $3.00 or less and use the coupon.  Since there is no way for me to set a Quantity  limit on the coupon, I am asking you all to help me out here.  Taking 2 $1.50 freebies throws my data off and that is not how the Manic Monday is supposed to work.  Now I know that I have lost customers over this, but the site, the store, the help, the product, it costs me whether it is a freebie or not.  I hate to have to keep saying this, as I love to give you all a freebie each Monday.  So help a girl out!  Im really not trying to be a meanie here, so please don't take it that way. I will say that if I can't manage to get it under control, PICK YOUR FREEBIE Week and MANIC MONDAY WILL go away.  Now this in no way covers the two freebies that are put up each week.  Go right on ahead and put both of those in your cart!  That is what they are there for, but if one of them is a Customer Pick, please remember that you will need to use the coupon to get it at 0$!
*********************************************************************************

Stef and  I would like to also take the opportunity to thank all of our customers for your patronage!  It is because of you that we do this each and every day!

Here's hoping you have a fantastic week ahead!
Catch you on the flip!

Simply Sentiments Thursday, and a Teaser!

Happy Thursday to you all!  It is Simply Sentiments Thursday!  Glitterbabe has three great sentiment stamps for you today.   Sadly, I did not get any done because I was working on a complete....ah......should I tell ya???  OK, A Complete Paisley Monogram set!  It was time for a new monogram set, and since so many of you enjoyed the Mehndi Motif (by the way, more on the way in that style) I decided to put together a Paisley Monogram set!  But more on that in a minute!  First, let me showcase Glitterbabe's three new sentiment stamps!  Here we go!

Friends 17


Friends 13


Thank You 1


All of these new sentiments, along with all of our other sentiments can be found in the Simply Sentiments Category!

Im kinda diggin the #13 one!  It is just too funny!

Well, ok, so I did mention that I have a paisley monogram set ready for the shop shelves.  And I thought to myself....Self, why don't you get a few opinions on it!  Well, here is the Letter A!  Now all of the letters have the same design frame background, AND if you all want more, hey, I have three other backgrounds I can do these in!  What I need from you all is a yes or a no to this one first!  Cause it takes mucho mucho time to put together a whole set!  And if you want them, I will so gladly take the time to do it!  So, are you ready????
Here she is:
Paisley Monogram A:  *****Note****** This is NOT in the Shop at this time.



Let me know what ya think! And while you are checking out the new sentiments, remember the Flower/Florals Sale is still on.....and you might find some new goodies if ya look!  You never ever know!

Well, as I am still not feeling my oats today, cause silly me felt better yesterday (a bit) and decided to take myself for a 1.4 mile jog/walk, I put myself back into sick mode again!  So I think I will just rest today and do the easy stuff!  I got this entire new alpha to load (which will be avaliable in singles and as an entire set, and a 6 pack coupon will go up when the set is loaded so you can get a nice discount if you want only 6.  Not sure why 6 is the magic number but it is.)

So I am off to sit down in a different chair, and read for just a bit!  New Pandigital Novel E Reader from my sweetie, so now I have a new gadget!  AKA Gadget Queen here!

We do hope that you all have a great Thursday, An even better Friday, and a spectacular weekend! (Be mindful of Hurricane Issac thought!  My mom is gonna get hammered there in Florida!)  Please make sure you are prepared if you are in this storms Path.  A public service announcement from Floppy Latte's Digital Designs!

Catch you all on the Flip!

 well isn't september a popular wedding month???  this would be perfect!

 change this to fall colors and you've got that seasonal centerpiece all ready to go!

and now FLOPPY's sending me to my room to work on next week's releases!  boy, i need to retire!!!  haaahhhaaahhhaaaa

happy shopping.

here's a little something to keep ya smiling....

The Psychiatrist and the Proctologist 

Best friends graduated from medical school at the same time 
And decided that, in spite of two different specialties, they would open a practice together to share office space and personnel. 

Dr. Smith was the psychiatrist and Dr. Jones was the 
Proctologist; they put up a sign reading: "Dr. Smith and Dr. 
Jones: Hysterias and Posteriors". The town council was livid 
And insisted they change it. 

So, the docs changed it to read: "Schizoids and 
Hemorrhoids." This was also not acceptable, so they again 
Changed the sign. "Catatonics and High Colonics"......No go. 

Next, they tried "Manic Depressives and Anal 
Retentives"....thumbs down again. Then came "Minds and 
Behinds"....still no good. Another attempt resulted in "Lost 
Souls and Butt Holes".......unacceptable again ! So they 
Tried "Analysis and Anal Cysts".....not a chance. "Nuts and 
Butts".....no way. "Freaks and Cheeks".....still no good. 
"Loons and Moons".....forget it. 

Almost at their wit's end, the docs finally came up with: 
"Dr. Smith and Dr. Jones--Odds and Ends" Everyone loved it.



now that's what i call CREATIVE!!!!

hugs and sparkles.....

Manic Monday! New Releases, and Extended Flowers/Florals Category Sale!


Happy Manic Monday to you all!  Im a bit under the weather today.  Something I ate over the weekend has got me feeling a bit woozy, but other than that, all is well!  Rolling right along!  I do hate the fact that Summer is coming to an end.  It is my favorite season, because of all the flowers and plants......sooooo I finished up a few more florals/flowers for you, and cause I just felt like it, extended the Flower/Florals Sale til the end of the Month!  Cause I just am like that!  So, I can imagine you want to see them right!  Well here they are:

Floral Swag:


Berry Sprig:



Playful Peonies:



Crocus Blooms:


All of these beauties are ON Sale til the end of the month for 25% off!  Sweet I say!

Now, Glitterbabe has had time to play and boy did she come up with some super cards for this week's new releases:

 I wanna say, I just love this card!  The shading on the flowers is wonderful and those leaves just make the card!  I wanna color just like Glitterbabe one day!



Now this is simply gorgeous!  Color choices are spot on and love the embossing!  What a crafter that Glitterbabe is!

Do you want to work with the new products from Floppy Latte's Digital Designs?  Well, we only have 8 days left on the Product Designer call, so get your links in so we can see all of your fantastic work.  Just check the sticky post at the top of the blog for all the deets!

Now,  Did you know that Floppy Latte's Digital Designs has a Facebook Page?  Well we do, and we would love to see some of your creations using FLDD products.  Feel Free to pop on over to  http://www.facebook.com/pages/Floppy-Latte-Designs/117439008270707  and give us a shout!  We would love some new friends and some great card examples!

Yes, Yes, its coming!  Oh wait, its here!  The Manic Monday Freebie!
Today it is a Mehndi Motif.....I was just doodling whilst Sir Markus is away at a business meeting with his boss, and this is what I came up with!


Now it is a bit unusual, a little out of the box for me but I thought I would try my hand at it!  I like it, I like it!
Mehndi Motif is free until Saturday Night at Midnight EST!  After that it goes to $3.00.

Now it has got me wanting to do an entire monogram set in the Mehndi pattern style!  What do you all think?  It is time for another Monogram set to come out soon!

On a personal note:  We took a nice buggy ride up the mountain to check out all of the Autumn Olives for our wine this fall, and boy are they every loaded!  We just hope we can get to them before the bears!  The lower altitude berries are ripe, but the ones high up on the mountain road still need a bit of time!  So as we go a berry pickin, I will be sure to keep you all updated on the wine progress, with photos and all!  Granted it is a long process so it will be over several posts!  But it is oh so much fun!

I don't have any funnies today, as I have been slightly under the weather so, just hold on, there will be more opportunities in the near future!

I do hope you have enjoyed your visit with us today, and come back and see us on Wednesday for Glitterbabe's Corner Days!

Have a Great Week!
