The Hostess Opportunity!

 

I have a few things to share with you--several Christmas swaps below...

 

AND some info!

 

 

I started with this yesterday:

Are you aware...(cuz I tend to forget to share this) when you are hostess, you can choose to use your host rewards toward buying a Starter Kit to be on my Dazzling Demos team??? During SAB that's an even MORE exciting opportunity!! 

 

FIRST, DOES EVERYONE KNOW WHAT SAB IS???

  • It's short for Sale-a-Bration.
  • Sale-a-Bration (SAB) = a sale Stampin' Up! has every year, January thru March (exact dates this year are 1/3/19 - 3/31/19)
  • There's a small, special brochure with exclusive products available during that time.
  • Those exclusive products CAN ONLY BE EARNED with your purchase.
  • CUSTOMERS: With every $50 you order, you get to choose 1 item, OR there are a couple larger items available with a $100 order. There is no limit to the number of free items you earn. [ie: $200 earns 4 (50) items or 2 (100) items or a combo of that.]
  • HOSTESSES: When you have at least a $250 workshop (or book party), you earn an additional $25 of free product besides your normal host rewards. [normal $250 workshop would earn $25; during SAB it earns $50]
  • NEW DEMONSTRATORS: Get to choose an extra $50 of product for their Starter Kit and this year they have the option of adding the Craft & Carry Tote!

 

 

1) So let's START again with: the Starter Kit is $99 + tax (no shipping!!)

  • During SAB (1/3/19 - 3/31/19) you also have the option of spending $129 instead and getting the Craft & Carry Tote, too! (If you do it now, it's $50 and comes out of your kit product choices.)

Craft n Carry Tote.4.2

 

 

2) You get to choose $125 of product regularly + you receive business supplies and a Paper Pumpkin Kit!

  • During SAB you get to choose $175 of product instead! (still $99 or $129 kit and no shipping)
  • Yay!! Join my Dazzling Demos Team!!!

 

 

3) Here are a few examples of how you could use your host rewards. While I'm just giving SAB examples, the opportunity applies ALL YEAR LONG, but it is greatly expanded during SAB--greater customer spending (so larger workshop), greater hostess benefits (with at least a $250 workshop) and greater value added to the Starter Kit:

  • $300 workshop/book party: earns $36 + $25 SAB bonus = $61 host rewards
    • apply them completely** toward your $129 Starter Kit, and pay $68 + tax
    • choose $175 of product + get the Craft & Carry Tote!
  • $450 workshop/book party: earns $63 + $25 SAB bonus = $88 host rewards
    • apply them completely** toward your $99 Starter Kit, and pay $11 + tax
    • choose $175 of product!
    • PLUS you still get to choose your half off item
  • $600 workshop/book party: earns $96 + $25 SAB bonus = $121 host rewards
    • apply them completely** toward your $129 Starter Kit, and pay $8 + tax
    • choose $175 of product + get the Craft & Carry Tote!
    • PLUS you still get to choose your half off item

 

Oooo!! I LIKE that LAST scenario A LOT!!!

 

**All my examples apply the full hostess benefits to the Starter Kit, BUT you can apply any part of it you'd like. When you might NOT want to apply it all is if you REALLY like one of the hostess only stamp sets in the back of the catalogs. 

 

 

Ok, so have I gotten you thinking???

 

I'd love for you to join my team!

And it's even easier if you're a hostess!

 

Contact me for more info!

 

 

Ok, here are some Christmas swaps I haven't shared with you yet:

2018 Annual Ornament Exchange

 

Once again we had a great time at my Annual Ornament Exchange!!

 

Fun with friends, yummy food and beautiful ornaments!

 

 

I DID have it in my mind already, but Linda made sure I didn't forget to take pics of the ornaments this time!! (and then have to have people email them to me!)

 

However, I never took any PEOPLE pics!! :/

What is WRONG with me???

 

Because I'm so horrible at this, last night I had the thought and told Todd I had a new job for him at my Hostess Appreciation Party this year...HE'S in charge of taking pics!!

 

So keep in mind if you want a group pic with your club or something, grab him! He doesn't necessarily know who's all in the same club.

 

 

 

Ok, so here are all the ornaments.

And I'm so sorry for the horrible lighting!!!

They were all beautiful!

Thank-you-turquoise-orange-website

 

That means:

  1. MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! Take the day off!! Do whatever you have to do to be there!!
  2. If you were a hostess (in person OR online) or a club member this year, you will be invited. I also invite my Dazzling Demo Team Members.
  3. I'll send out invitations within the next month.
  4. If you didn't hostess yet, you still have a couple weeks left to get that book party in and be invited!
  5. START WORKING ON YOUR CONTEST CARDS!!
    • For those of you new to me....I have an optional Card Contest every year: design a card, keep it a secret, get it to me by Thursday, 1/24/19.
    • REQUIREMENTS: your design MUST include ALL CURRENT SU! product only; "current" means IN a catalog that is "live" as of 1/3/19.
    • PLEASE, please, please check the catalogs (2018-19 Annual, 2019 Occasions & 2019 SAB--both coming out soon) BEFORE using on your project. I had to return a couple peoples's cards last year, because they didn't qualify. That makes me sad, but I'm trying to be fair.
  6. I CAN'T WAIT to spoil you and show you my appreciation!

 

 

Thanks for stamping with me!!

I wouldn't really....

 

I have a gorgeous swap from Deb McCahan using the Beautiful Blizzard bundle:

 

Beautiful Blizzard bundle, swap created by Deb McCahan, www.dazzledbystamping.com

 

I like the saying on this card!

 

But I have to be honest and say, I don't really think I'd send you a blizzard!!

 

I don't wish a blizzard on ANYONE!!!

Hee hee!

And then thinking of them in terms of hugs made me think of my nephew Emilio.

 

My sister Teresa and her family sent me a package for my birthday that included 50 kisses & hugs (Hershey.) They live in Arizona, and the thought was perfect!

 

I loved it.

But what I loved even more was the story that went with it.

If you don't know this about me already, I LOVE KID STORIES!!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! I don't always have the greatest memory, but when it comes to kids, my memory is amazing! They just stick in my head!!

 

So the package included love notes from the kids and a note from Teresa that said Emilio (5) seemed thankful he didn't have to personally deliver them. Haha!

 

Even better...when I texted her and thanked her for the adorable gift and told her it totally cracked me up that Emilio didn't have to give them to me personally, she added to the story:

 

I wish I could have recorded Emilio when we were discussing your gift and that I wanted to give you 50 kisses. His eyes got big and his hand slowly covered his mouth.

 

HAHAHAHA!!!!

It STILL makes me laugh!!!

 

Ok, and here I thought this was gonna be a quick post!

But you got me talking about "my kids!" ;)

 

 

So my plan is to show this bundle on my Facebook Live! tomorrow.

 

I saw some cool ways to use it while I was on the cruise and just never squeezed it into a class!

 

Here are a couple more shots of THIS card:
