Ok, ok, the title of this post is a wee bit misleading. You do technically have to host a party to earn free hostess-only stamp sets, like this great new fave of mine, Simply Sketched. I know a lot of people complain that they can't get the sets without hosting. However, you can certainly have a BOOK party or a FACEBOOK party, and get lots of free merchandise without actually opening your home to guests--and having to clean!
While there's really no substitute for face to face partying in the fun department, everyone's so busy these days or has vacations scheduled for summer, that a book party or Facebook party might just be the way to go for everyone concerned.
Book parties and Facebook parties are SO easy to do now with our fabulous new hostess code program. Contact me to get your hostess code, and then you can spread the word and people can order what they need from the new catalog online, and you'll get the credit towards your party total. Easy peasy! firstname.lastname@example.org
Then you can get Simply Sketched and other great hostess exclusives, or spend your hostess dollars on whatever you have been eyeing in the new catalog. I have SEEN some of ya'll's wish lists!! Oi vey!! You might as well get hostess bucks with that, doncha think?
The top card in this post my my historic first swap design for Convention 2013... I have started the long process of creating sample card fronts to swap with my fellow demos. I am trying to make a BUNCH this year because there are more than 5,500 demonstrators coming. Can you imagine?? How fun will that be?! The above card I liked as well, and then this third one didn't make the cut. I think I'd have liked it better if I'd stamped the z-fold card in a lighter tone rather than Early Espresso.
I do love the new Baked Brown Sugar color! That is going to give my fave Soft Suede a run for it's money!
I got my box with the eight free stamp sets I earned from Stampin' Up late last night (love this company!), and my assistant put them together for me this morning, so I hope to be able to play-play-play with them this afternoon! Watch for a plethora of inspiration from Song of My Heart Stampers in the next couple of weeks.
