Well I am just about getting familiar with the new Stampin' Up! 2011-12 Idea Book and Catalogue and today I'm going to share the gorgeous new papers we have for your delectation and delight. Every year,all of the Designer Series Papers retire to be replaced by new ones and this year's selection is one of the best I have seen since I became a demo!
We have no less than fourteen new sets of papers most of which are double sided (the exceptions are the two flocked papers in the Mocha Morning set, and the die cut doilies in the Flirtatious set which are single sided) and a stack of papers in the new 2011-13 In Colours of Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Island Indigo. The designer paper stacks in Regals, Subtles, Brights and Neutrals have stayed the same along with the 5 In Colours from last year.
Here's a sneak peek of all of the new papers in the "sampler" I made this morning. Flip these individual sample booklets and see the papers up close and personal - much better than the tiny pictures in the catalogue!
We also have a fabulous new Hostess only set which can only be bought by hostesses using the "Hostess Pounds" they earn by having a home workshop for their friends where sales reach £150 or more.
Did you notice the "Hostess pounds" phrase in the last paragraph??
That is the name for the new Hostess Rewards scheme which came in with the new catty. In the old days hostesses earned a free stamp set (or 6x6 paper pad) depending on the level of sales at their parties. These were Level 1 gift for parties of £150- £299.99, Level 2 gift for parties of £300 - £499.99 and a Level 3 gift if they got sales of £500 or more. This was a bummer for lots of hostesses who could only dream of having a £500 party - but that has all been changed!!
Now - hostesses (or even single customers) who meet the threshold sales of £150 get £25 in "Hostess Pounds" to spend ANYWHERE in the catalogue. There are still some "hostess only" sets available, and should you choose these items - your hostess pounds will go further than in the rest of the catalogue as they are offered only to hostesses at a significantly reduced price. Better yet, hostesses get enough to buy even the most expensive hostess set and they will STILL have money left to spend in the rest of the catalogue.
Are you feeling tempted yet? Fancy a spending spree on the new goodies you have been eyeing up?
Well why not get in touch with me to see if we can arrange a party/ workshop for YOU and your friends - I still have dates available in November and December - and my demonstrations and make and takes over the next few weeks will be Christmas cards, gifts and decorations!
Go - on - have a crafty Christmas this year and give me a ring or drop me an email to see what we can create together!
