Have you wondered what we do at a Hostess Club?
The club members pick which day they want to meet that is convenient for them. The number of members determines how much they need to purchase each month and how long the session runs. So, in my Monday night club, we currently have 5 stampers and as long as the purchases are over $150 total we are good. Let me tell you that it’s always well over that! With 5 members we run for 6 months because I like to have a “Mystery Hostess” for one month. My Friday night club has 12 member and with our “Mystery Hostess” month, their session runs for 13 months.
Each club member gets to be the Hostess one time during each session. It’s fun doing the “Mystery Hostess” because a drawing determines which lucky stamper gets to be the Hostess twice in that session. What does it mean to be the Hostess? Well, that lucky person receives all the Hostess benefits and hostess rewards for that month.
Each month I design 3 complete cards especially for my club members. I focus on new products and fun designs and techniques. Here are the cards we will/have done this month:
This is a cute fun fold card. We worked on coloring in the flower with our blender pens. I used two of our new in colors, blackberry bliss and hello honey. I am just lovin’ that rich ribbon! Here is the inside of this card:You can see the flower portion folds out to reveal the inside with our cute little owl and a message.
One of the stampers requested a graduation card. I did however design a totally different design which would cover the front and inside stamped images for those members that didn’t need another graduation card. Ignore the red lines over the message, the card accidentally jumped into the red ink pad last night.Here is the inside of the grad card. The verses for this card are from a new photopolymer stamp set called Bravo. What is so nice is that all three of the images above were placed on one block! That way you can line them up and stamp them all at the same time!
So, that’s 3 good reasons to want to become a club member. If you have some ladies that you enjoy stamping with and would like to have a monthly “private” hostess club session give me a call! Did I mention that my club members also receive a free catalog that is spiral bound? Just another perk! (If you are wondering all my catalogs are FREE and I would be happy to send one out to you!)
