Hostess Appreciation!

I'm really excited to be hosting my Hostess Appreciation Open House tomorrow! I really appreciate the ladies who have hosted workshops and stamp-a-stacks for me and who have been in stamp and scrapbooking clubs. It's so wonderful getting to know all these ladies that I probably wouldn't have met had I not become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have made so many wonderful friends through this amazingly fun obsession I have!

I've been working all week getting things ready - planning make & takes, making gifts, preparing a menu, etc. I'll show the gifts after the open house because I want to surprise my hostesses. But here's a sneak peek at a few other things:

I'll be having a door prize draw, of course, with many chances to enter. Each lady will receive an entry form for each of the following:
  • coming to the open house
  • doing the make & takes
  • signing up for a club in the fall
  • placing an order
  • booking a workshop or stamp-a-stack
  • signing up as a demonstrator with me
And what can they win? A gift basket that includes a Simply Scrappin' Kit (Creative License), a package of Love & Happiness Rub-Ons, the Friendship Blooms stamp set and a package of assorted 8 1/2 x 11" cardstock (one of each colour).For the make & takes, the ladies will make this "Cami's Trifold Card" that I made using Porcelain Prints (with Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi and River Rock to coordinate) and my Wild Rose stamp set.They will also make this brag book page (that I CASEd from the Stampers' Showcase on the Stampin' Up! demonstrator site - it was created by Debra Gray).
There will also be a surprise card that they will get to create using some punches and designer paper (I'll post that one later!).

Thanks for sticking with me through this really long entry! I hope my hostesses will enjoy their day tomorrow!

Blessings to you,
