There is so much to be excited about and one of the best goodies is for the hostesses. There is a hostess special from September 1 - November 30 that makes ME want be a hostess! If you have a workshop that reaches $250 (a very easy amount) during that time, you get to pick any item in the mini catalog (except the digital studio or hostess sets) for only $10! There are dies in there for over $40 and beautiful stamp sets that you can save nearly $20 on. That is in addition to the regular hostess set and $25 in free merchandise that you would get on a $250 order. If you want in on this wonderful deal, contact me and I'll get a Holiday Mini Catalog to you and help plan your workshop. firstname.lastname@example.org
To make it even better though, beginning October 1st, My Digital Studio will become available. This is the digital scrapbook program I mentioned earlier that has Stampin' Up stamp sets, punches, accessories and colors as well as tons of digital design components. You can make scrapbook pages, cards, calendar pages and mini albums using My Digital Studio. You can print your creations at home or have them printed in book form and delivered right to your door. If you are hostess to a $400 workshop between October 1 and November 30, you can not only get the previously mentioned one item from the mini catalog for $10, you can also get the My Digital Studio CD for half price! That is a $79.95 value for $39.97!
I'm thinking that one workshop wouldn't be enough! You might consider hosting a workshop in September and get one of the $10 deals besides your regular hostess gifts and then host another in Oct or Nov and get ANOTHER $10 deal, the regular hostess gifts ($45 in free merchandise at the $400 level) AND the half price My Digital Studio!
There are several bling items in the mini catalog too. I need to order some of them so I can show some projects using them. Let me just say "Shimmer Paint"! I'll be posting lots of projects with these bling items over the next few months coming up to Christmas.
Another new thing in the Holiday Mini Catalog is that Stampin' Up has teamed up with Build-A-Bear Workshop so we now have stamp sets and Sizzix dies that will be great for your scrapbook pages and invitations to Build-A-Bear Workshops and birthday parties! Here is a picture of the bears I die-cut and put together at the Convention. They even have special paper to cut the clothes out of which includes some blue jean looking paper as well as lots of smaller prints and plaids perfect for cutting these little clothes. Check out the link for the mini catalog to see the other clothes available, a cute witch and pumpkin and an irresistable Mr. and Mrs. Clause.
This is a great mini catalog and there are great hostess deals, what better reason to get started on your Christmas cards and Christmas shopping right away??
