Join the Club

Happy New Year!!!  It's that time again, Club time.  If you're interested in being part of a stamp club, let me know.  We meet (usually) the first Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at my house.  Fun projects are made that will teach you more intricate techniques.  All materials are provided.  You get to be the hostess for one month and thereby get all the hostess goodies and free items of your choosing.  Also, when it's your hostess month, you can get additional orders from friends to increase your hostess benefits. If you are unable to attend one month, I'll make the projects and get them to you.  The other benefit is you can attend my monthly stamp camps for free!  Your only responsibility is to purchase $25 a month.  This club runs from January --  June.  Our first club meeting is on Wed., January 4th.  Please let me know if you're joining.

Can't make the Club, but still want the projects.  You can be a long-distance member.  Just let me know you want to be a part of it.  Projects will be sent to you and you will get to be a hostess one of the months.  You just need to make the required purchase of $25 by the Club due date.  Free attendance at my monthly stamp camps is still included if you live in the area.

What Fun----

On Saturday, a group of "inkyfingers" demonstrators got together to have a mini SU Convention.  Everyone brough a shoebox swap and we spent the day stamping.  The highlight was during lunch when Jamie shared her experience from SLC at the Convention.  She inspired and challenged us all in our own businesses.  Here are some of the projects we did, along with pics of happy stampers.  You could become one of these smiling faces by joining the fun.
What a great group of ladies!!!

Join a Club----

Would you enjoy spending a night out doing something fun?  Do you want to learn how to make the most of the stamping supplies you already have?  More importantly, is your stamping wish list longer than your grocery list??? Then join the club.  The stamp club that is!  This is a wonderful way to budget your purchases and build your stamp collection at over time.  This is good for all levels, from beginners to over-the-top stampers.
How it works:
The club runs for a 6-month period.  As a club member with 6 ladies total, you commit to making a minimum monthly purchase of $25 (before S/H and tax) of Stampin’ Up! products from the current catalog and/or mini catalog. Each month, a different member is the “hostess” and receives the hostess benefits.  Each month we’ll set the date for our next get-together, giving club members flexibility in the date.  If your schedule doesn’t allow you to attend one month, you’ll still need to make your $25 purchase and you’ll receive all the same club benefits.  Simply email me your order by the due date (one week after our get-together date).
What you get as a club member:
o   A FREE monthly class at my house or at your home where you’ll make two beautiful projects.
o   A FREE Stampin’ Up! Catalog/Mini Catalogs
o   FREE registration at my monthly Stamp Camp (except Stamp-a-Stack)
o   $25 in Hostess Dollars to spend on Hostess Only items and/or any other items in the catalog. **
o   5 FREE hand-stamped cards w/envelopes **
o   Club purchases are included in my Frequent Buyer Rewards program.
**Members receive these items when it’s their “hostess” month

Can’t attend a monthly Stamp Club? Join my Online Stamp Club:
o   Order $25 from the catalog and/or mini catalog each month
o   Receive 2 FREE projects in the mail each month
o   Online Stamp Club runs for an 8 month subscription
o   $25 FREE product at the end of the Stamp Club
o   Receive Hostess Benefits on all monthly orders over $150
o   Free Catalog and Mini Catalogs
