I’ll be starting a new round of Stamper’s Club in September and I have openings for a few new members.  Each month we get together at my house to stamp some great projects.  At every meeting one person in the club is the hostess.  The hostess brings some snacks to share with everyone and gets all the hostess benefits from the orders that night.  Everyone places a minimum order each month and when its your turn to be the hostess you get a hostess set (minimum of one Level 1 set) and the free spending money (minimum of $15).  For the months of September, October and November Stampin’ Up! will have a hostess special for workshops that are $250 or more in sales.  I have plans this time to start everyone on gifts for the holidays so each meeting will include a gift item (some may have extra supply fees) and then you will also get to make two cards.  Our meeting nights are on Friday nights (either the first or second Friday of the month) – so plan to join me for a Girls Night Out once a month in Woodstock, Georgia.

BagsAll Club members also get a catalog (returning members already have theirs) and a special gift from me!  This time I brought everyone back something from convention – they are the cutest reusable shopping bags and they feature the artwork from the Circle Circus Stamp set.  These were quite the popular item from memento mall.

You can also get one of these bags from me by hosting a workshop at your house and inviting your friends to see what Stampin’ Up! is all about.  I’d love to share some new ideas with you and help you prepare for the holiday!

We had our final Stamper’s Club meeting for this round after I got back from convention and here is a look at one of the projects that we made.

dsp-purseThis cute purse made from a sheet of Designer Series Paper.  This project was shared at convention at our Starz meeting by Julia.

I’m planning to make more of these to sell at a Holiday Bazaar that I will be participating in at the beginning of Oct.  I think these are perfect teenage girl gift package idea.  I’m also going to make up some that are Holiday themed – you could fill it with something to give a neighbor or hostess when you attend a party.  Even the simplest gift is special when you present it in a unique way.

There really isn’t any stamping involved with this one unless you add the initials like I did on this example or add a tag to the handle with a little message like “thank you” or “just for you”.

I made this one and sent it to my niece, Emily.  I think she will enjoy making these for all her friends.

We’ll be making more fun projects at our club meetings so if you are interested in joining please contact me today.

Have a great Stampin’ Up! Day!
