Hostess Club

Tomorrow evening is my monthly Hostess Club!  This club go-around meets on one Thursday a month at 7 pm and we create one project for the gals to take home.  This is always a fun-filled evening and tomorrow night will be no different!  Look for information below on how to join my next hostess club starting in July 2009!

At our regional event in Seattle last Saturday we received a stamp set “Best Wishes & More”.  DSC01759I have fallen in love with the versatility of this stamp set retailed at 26.95 on page 55 of the current catalog.  The sayings included in this 9 piece stamp set are * “ready, set, snow!” * “Wishing you all this… and more”  * “couldn’t do without you” & * “laughter joy happiness bliss delight”.   I used this stamp set for the following two projects which we will be doing at our April Hostess Club.

The first project is a magnet and uses Green Galore cardstock, Perfect Plum Classic Stampin’ Pad & In Colors Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin’ Pad.  I attached the flowers with dimensions (using 2 stacked on each DSC01757other to raise the Tangerine Tango flower higher than the outside ones).  I also attached magnets to the back of it and rounded the corners with my punch.  I think that my Mom will love this simple yet handmade gift for Mother’s Day.  Shhh don’t tell her!


The card that we are making could also be used for Mother’s day which is right around theDSC01755 corner.  I stared with Perfect Plum for the cardstock, added Urban Oasis DSP and punched with my Scallop Edge punch.  I then used whisper White Cardstock and stamped the heart stamp from the “Best Wishes & More” set in Perfect Plum, adhere this after distressing the edges to choc. chip cardstock and add a simple saying.  You could add buttons or brads or even a strip of ribbon if you would like but I like the simplicity of this card.

Have I gotten you interested in how you can make projects like these?  It is easy to sign up!  Here are the details… you commit to placing an order once a month of $25.00 or more in product (before shipping and tax) for the duration of the club and in exchange  you get:

  • A FREE catalog
  • To be hostess for a month which means at least $15.00 in FREE product and a FREE level 1 hostess gift
  • Invite more people or get outside orders for the month you are the hostess and earn more FREE product!
  • FREE Ideas and crafts that you are able to take home with you and use throughout the year!

The club always meets in my craft room!  Email me if you have any questions or if this is something that you are interested in doing!
