Earn an extra $25 in free Stampin’ Up merchandise!

Hello there. Just a quick post tonight with a simple card I made for a recent workshop. This was one of two make and takes at a recent in-home workshop I had. Each guest made this card and a 6 X 6 scrapbook page (the one in the previous post) and learned the ins and outs of stamping. I love meeting new people at workshops and helping my hostesses earn free stamps and accessories. There’s still a few weeks to squeak in a workshop for YOU and you can earn and extra $25 of free Stampin’ Up merchandise (on top of the regular hostess benefits) through Aug. 31. E-mail me today to pick a date for your own workshop and you can help me decide what projects you and your friends will make.

However, I’ve already got plans in the works to grow my business (hopefully double) by next year — so I may have to limited it strictly to hostesses — so be sure to book a date soon to ensure you get invited. So would you like to see some of the projects and goodies we had? Well, I
