Last month’s craft night was a fun night for all. It was great to meet new people and get some crafting done. I was able to create 4 cards plus play with the July Paper Pumpkin Kit. A friend of mine who purchased one of the card kits in the catalog and was able to create 20 cards in one night!!! Awesome! We are LOOKING for a place to hold craft night this month. If you have any suggestions, please email me. I’d like to find a place that’s free or donation only so that this monthly event remains FREE for everyone.
Holiday Catalog Product Shares
Last but not least, I’ve been drooling over the Holiday Catalog which I can’t share with you until August 28th. BUT, as a demonstrator, I am able to preorder. I know you ladies are already thinking about Holiday cards and this catalog has everything you need to send out handmade greeting cards and goodies to your friends and family. If you’re like me, you’re going to want it all. So, I decided that I would offer a couple of product shares to be able to provide you with a little of it all for an affordable price! First I have a Holiday Paper Share that will include 6x6 sheets of every design for every collection of designer series paper available in the Holiday Catalog. This paper share includes paper to use for each of the fall holidays: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! You’ll get 2 sheets of every design for 6 different designer series paper packs for a total of 70 6x6 sheets. The Holiday Paper Share is $15. Next, I am offering a Holiday Embellishments Share. This share includes 2 yards of each ribbon/twine featured in the Holiday Catalog as well as a sampling of buttons, sequins, and epoxy stickers. This share is also $15. I’ll need at least 4 people to commit to the share before ordering, so let me know ASAP! I’d like to preorder these items and have them into your hands the day the catalog goes live! You’ll be one of the first to have these products! Just send me an email and let me know that you’re in and I’ll send you a paypal invoice. Here are some images from Shelli Gardner’s (Stampin’ Up CEO) blog to give you a sneak peak of the catalog.
So, finally, don’t forget to email me if you are interested in participating in this month’s Ink-It-On class, if you want in on the product shares, if you’re ready to host a party and get a free Paper Pumpkin kit or if you want to join my team! As always, I am happy to answer any questions you might have! I look forward to hearing from you and crafting with you soon!
