Seasons of Fun: Host with the Most!

When a stamp set works for more than one holiday, it’s a great investment…and when you can get it at a discount, that’s a no brainer!

The Seasons of Fun stamp set is one you can choose as part of your Stampin’ Rewards for just $12 when you host a party!

Did you know that an order of $150 or more COUNTS as a party? That’s right…you don’t have to invite people over to qualify for the benefits of hosting, you can just gather orders or place your own qualifying order in my Stampin’ Store.

With this set of cards, I used the SAME LAYOUT and made a card for Halloween, Fall and Christmas. Because the Seasons of Fun stamp set doesn’t have any words, I paired it with the very versatile Banner Year stamp set for the greetings:

Turn the layout and add strips of Designer Series Paper instead of just one piece:

Or swap sides:

Aren’t these kids the cutest? It’s fun to color them with Stampin’ Blends and easy to celebrate all the Fall-idays.

This host-exclusive set is only available during the current mini catalog period…one more reason to host a party (or place a qualifying order) before the Seasons of Fun stamp set retires on January 3, 2022. I’ll help you host an event online or in your home ~ let’s plan it!

Simple Sunflower Celebration Card

Send a little sunshine with a sunflower card!

The new Celebrate Sunflower stamp set is sensational to stamp with!

One detail I love is the subtle embossing folder: I adhered the vanilla card stock to the cinnamon cider layer before running it through this often overlooked tool…and it gives it a texture like a painter’s canvas:

While I only used the stamps for this project, there are coordinating dies and when you bundle the stamps & dies together, you save 10%.

I used this card as an invitation for my annual hostess appreciation brunch and it was an easy one to make in multiples. If you would like an invitation to next year’s hostess appreciation event, June is a fine time to hold a virtual (or in-person) Stampin’ Up! party because when your total reaches $250, you earn an additional $25 in Stampin’ Rewards to spend!

Host in June

Ladybug Fly Away Card

 

Entering the Fall-iday Zone

With the kickoff of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog yesterday, it’s pumpkin-spice and everything nice for papercrafting dreamers!

When it comes to stamps, there are styles for every personal preference from elegant to whimsical in the holiday catty, but today I wanted to share a few hidden gems you will want not want to miss!

These mini pizza boxes (item #144645) are perfect for tiny treats, cookies and 3×3 cards (3×3 envelopes are also available~ item #145829). These are sure to be extremely popular, so order early!

Holiday17_p21aCustomers often ask if we sell Stampin’ Write Markers individually~ and while we don’t usually, I always snag them when they are offered in a two-pack like the Old Olive and Real Red Markers for just $7 a pair (item #145059).

Holiday17_p04b

You may miss these acetate card boxes on first glance because they are clear~ but they are AMAZING for cards with dimension or a set of cards as a gift or just to use as pretty packaging and with 10 in a package for $6.50, you’ll find plenty of reasons to fill them up! (item 144628).

Shareable_MerryPat_090117_NAFinally, there is a fabulous opportunity to earn this exclusive Merry Patterns stamp set FREE just by hosting a party before October 31, 2017 that totals $300 or more! This is in *addition* to the Stampin’ Rewards you earn as a hostess and can be a workshop, customer or online order. I have only a few open dates left for the next few months, so book your party soon (at your house or mine or online!)

I {Heart} Hosts!

Because friends like you share your love of creating with others by inviting them into your home, Stampin’ Up! demonstrators like me are able to bring the joy of papercrafting to the world! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

It’s our turn to thank you: You may earn MORE Stampin’ Rewards by hosting a party in June (in your home or online)! 

Last Saturday I held my annual Hostess Appreciation Breakfast (another reason to host a party!) and enjoyed spoiling some of my dearest friends and hosts:

FullSizeRenderPop in tomorrow to get a close-up the adorable gift I made them!

Meanwhile, contact me to schedule a party or join my Creative Juice Stamp Club and you’ll have the chance to host one time during the year (club starts in July).

You Light Up My Life

Wanted an opportunity to create a card with the new Pun Intended Hostess set from the 2016-17 Catalog, so the TGIF Challenge seemed like a perfect chance to get my fingers inky!

Here’s the sketch challenge:

And my take on it:
It’s a delightfully whimsical stamp set and these lightbulbs just made me smile as I was creating! The only way to get your hands on it is to host a party and did you know I also do virtual parties on Facebook? You don’t have to clean your house or make a treat…just sit in your comfy clothes and party with friends for 30 minutes! It’s as easy as it sounds so email me today to set a time!

Need an Excuse to Run Away? Join a Club!

Stamp club members look forward to a night with adult conversation over crafts and often linger longer while family gets to bed or significant other is watching sports 🙂 Some clubs meet in the daytime while the kids are at school, so their family is none-the-wiser!

There is ALWAYS food, laughter, friendship and STAMPING.

If you need an excuse to exercise those flabby creative muscles, a stamp club will help you tone them up! Download a club form to answer questions you may have and get it to me ASAP to join as most clubs begin in JULY.

If you are in Utah, but not in Utah County, I can find a demonstrator close to you OR help you start a Stampin’ Up! business of your own!

Just want to host a party one time? Of COURSE!

Let’s plan a crafting class that your friends will want to attend! We can even do one online. 
Just give me a call at 801-376-8685.
