June Stamp Club

June 20th at 1:00 pm is the date/time of my next club. If you are interested in checking out the club and making these fun projects, there are two ways to do it. You can put in an order of at least $20 the day of the club, or you can pay $5 for the two projects. I need to know by June 13th if you are going to join us to ensure I have enough supplies.

The first project is a birthday slider card. It is super easy and fun to make. It is also a great surprise for the recepient.

The next project is a 12" x 12" page summer spread. It is versatile and great for those summer pics.
If you are not a scrapbook person, bring your paper trimmer and use the pieces from your kit to make these 4 cards. You will have pieces left over that you can use on cards that you create at home.

At stamp clubs, a group of women places regular orders and rotate hostess benefits. Each person in the group commits to placing a minimum order depending on the number of ladies in the club. Stamp clubs usually meet once a month for as many months as there are members of the club. Here are the two most common types of stamp clubs:
Minimum-purchase club: The amount each member will order each month is typically determined by dividing the minimum order necessary to received hostess benefits ($150) by the number of members in the club. For example, if there are ten in the club, each places a minimum order of $15 before tax, shipping and handling, so the total order can be placed as a workshop.
The hostess benefits rotate with a different person in the group receiving them each time.
If there are only 5-6 of you that would like to join a club, we can do it every month with a $25-$30 minimum with 2 months as a hostess during the year, or we could hold the club every other month with the same minimum purchase, just not as many projects throughout the year.
Product-based club: The club members contribute to the purchase of certain products each month. For example, a club might decide to purchase a set of the Stampin' Write Many Marvelous Markers which costs $125.95. If there are ten people in the club, they would each contribute approximately $13 every month. After ten months, the club would have purchased 10 sets of markers. Each member of the group would receive four markers a month, with one person getting the storage case. This kind of group can be adjusted if the customers want a complete set without waiting a full year or if there are fewer people involved.
Clubs can be customized to your needs. If you'd like to make a 3-D project instead of the card or scrapbook pages, that can be arranged. 3-D projects can be little boxes, gift bags, wall hangings, stationary sets, etc.
Another benefit of a club is you get a new catalog every year for free, a $9.95 value! It is a great time to work on your scrapbooking and make personalized cards to give out. When the year comes to an end, you have a full album that is ready for pictures. If you'd like to check out a club, join a club, or make your own, let me know today.
