SUDSOL Blog Tour - May 17th

The stamp set I choose for my SUDSOL contribution comes from mutliple demonstrator ideas via a mystery card.

Here’s the story of my contribution. Periodically, I get together with a few demo friends (Julie Link, Kelly Kleven, Lisa Wellman, and Kim Glover). Whenever we get together we each bring a shoebox swaps plus someone is responsible for a mystery card.

What is a mystery card? Well, we take turns. If it is your turn to be the mystery card master you decide on the paper, ink, punches, embellishments, and stamp set to be used. You create your version of a card and keep it hidden. As each person creates their card with the material their design is hidden. Once everyone is done the mystery card master places all the samples out for voting to begin. The winner receives a prize.

Whenever I am the mystery card master I use SUDSOL pattern library or ideas from other demos from the gallery for my card.

Here’s the samples.

What Works For You and Your Friends?

I have found workshops are a fun way to spend an afternoon or evening with family and friends. With so many fun techniques and projects to try, there is always something new to learn and create.

Plus, as a hostess you’ll receive a free copy of the idea book & catalog, and with qualifying sales can also earn free products available only to hostesses!
I offer a variety of options for events so you can pick the one that best fits you and your friends. Or check out my calendar which can be found on my website for upcoming scheduled events!

Workshops –
Want to see what stamping is all about? Or maybe just have a fun evening with friends trying out the latest technique and earning free products along the way? Whatever your reason, a workshop is a fun way to spend a couple hours with friends as you watch some stamping demonstrations and then get hands-on as you make your very own project. Plus, with qualifying sales you can earn free products including stamps and paper available only to hostesses! This is a free event.

Stamp Camp-
People are invited to the hostess’s house to create pre-designed cards. I provide all the paper, ink, stamps, and accessories needed to make the cards. There are two options for this party:
4 cards / $10
4 scrapbook pages (12″x12″) / $15
This is the most popular option of all the parties, as your guests get to see how easy and fun it is to rubber stamp and take their creations with them at the end of the event.

Stamp a Stack –
This class is especially popular, as it is an easy and cost-effective way of getting cards with a personal touch. There are two options for this class:
12 cards / $20 (approx. 2 hours)
20 cards / $30 (approx. 3 hours)
This is a pre-pay class, and an RSVP deadline will be declared approximately 4 days before the class.

Stamp Clubs –
You choose how you want your club to work. You can do monthly, every other month, 6-9-10 months.

For an every other month club, 5-6 people meet at my house or yours and get to make 3 free cards. Each person agrees to spend at least $30 every other month, and each person takes turns being the “hostess,” so everyone receives host benefits at least once a year for their chosen month. This club requires the commitment of one year, whether or not you are able to attend the free make-and-take sessions.

This club is great for people who enjoy stamping but may not have a large base of contacts to invite or time to organize a party of their own but still want to receive host benefits.

Misc Clubs –
Had your eye on the new Big Shot, Stampin Write Markers, a caddy, or some other big item but can’t buy it all at once? Just like the stamp clubs, you and your friends can get together for a few free projects, fun times, and in the end – the items you’ve been dreaming of!

Design Your Own –
I will work with you to tailor a class specifically for what you want. Some classes I have done in the past have included Baby Shower, Wedding, and Bridal Showers. Prices will depend on difficulty, duration, and supplies needed. Contact me to design your class today!

If you are ready to book your workshop? Check out my calendar and let me know what day is best for you!
