Stampers 10

This is something I'd like to start in October for the launch of the new catalogue. Please let me know if you are interested.

When you host a workshop you need a minimum of £150 in sales to qualify for one set of free stamps and £15.00 worth of product from the catalogue

· In a Stampers 10 club there are 10 members.
· The club runs for ten months.
· Each member agrees to spend a minimum of £15.00 per month, before postage.
· Each month a different club member is chosen to be the hostess.
· You do not actually have to host a workshop – it’s like having a virtual party.
· When it is your turn to be the hostess you are guaranteed to receive a level one hostess set of your choice free plus at least £15 to spend in the catalogue.
· You also get a free copy of the catalogue.

This can also be done as a Stampers 6 where the amount would be £25 per month (plus postage). Or if you want more then you can take more than one place :)

August promo Blog Hop

As mentioned in my last post I am taking part in a blog hop to show how Stampin' Up! stamps can be used in scrapbooking. Those following the blog hop should have got here via Pat.  I hope you liked her layout using Trendy Trees :) Welcome to those who have started from my blog - I've just been round the hop and there are so many lovely projects for you to see.  The link to the next blog is at the end of this post.

I haven't scrapped for a while so thought I'd get back in to it with a small layout.  This is a 6" x 6" page of my sister and husband not long after they got married.  The bottom left of the page is Bird on a Branch and all other stamps are from the Tiny Tags set.  When I thought of using this set I only had the Mr and Mrs tag in mind.  I was very pleased to discover the flowers and the hearts and think I'll get good use out of them.

Stamps (20% off during August!)
Tiny Tags (mini catalogue)

Thanks for visiting :)

Now it's time to visit Debbi Taylor who also has a layout with Trendy Trees.
