Stamp Club and New Hostess Rewards!

One more week and then it's summer break. I LOVE summer break!! During the summer i have tons of time to fully take in the new SU catty, order new stamp sets and supplies, rejuvenate with fresh new ideas and then bombard you with lots of new ideas and techniques come September. I’ve already been asked to host a Christmas Stamp a Stack (SAS) card class. It will be one of many Christmas SAS's i host this coming fall --wwwoooohooo! If you are ready to join us for some fabulous times this coming fall/spring and want to join stamp club in September please email me ASAP as I only have a few spots left!! If you are looking to accumulate your crafting supplies while staying on a wee budget plus learn fresh new techniques this club is for you!!

I’m sure most of you have heard by now that there is a NEW Hostess Rewards Program starting July 1st! Want the details?? --- of course you do!

You no longer have to pick a level one or two hostess set. You can now cash in your hostess dollars for product of your choice. Wooohoo.... how exciting is that?? Once your workshop (or hostess month) total reaches $200 in sales before taxes, you will achieve hostess dollars which you can spend on regular and mini catalogue items or on hostess exclusive stamp sets. Here is mini breakdown of the sales/benefits in the new Idea Book and Catalogue:

$200 = $35
$265 = $40
$330 = $55
$400 = $70
$525 = $90 plus
one 1/2 price item!
$650 = $110 plus two 1/2 price items!

It just goes up from there!

I've posted many club projects here on our blog so take a peek at past projects and don't miss the next session of stamp club starting this September!!

Since June was our last club get together for this session we created 4 projects this month. Here are 2 of the 4 projects.

I created a Snip & Tuck card back in February using the sale-a-bration DSP and loved the outcome so much i just had to recreate with different DSP and stamp set for this month's stamp club get together.

You can see that the card is snipped and then tucked under to close! How clever!! You can click here to see where i got the idea for this card and view the instructions on how to recreate this card. (Thank you Julie for the inspiration!)

The idea for this gift card holder came from Stamping 411 - Thank you Connie for the Inspiration! To view full instructions along with the dimensions click here.
