Stampin' Up! Travel Log

We travel so many different ways in life
Vacation, Careers, and Education.
What better way to encourage those in our life to reach for their dreams than by the use of the
Word Play and Travel Log Stamp Set?

Today's "Design of the Day" is a card that could be given to a friend prior to a great adventure or it could be just the right pat of the back, a person changing jobs or graduating from school would need  to follow their dreams.

Stampin' Up Items I used on this card include:
  • Cajun Craze, Garden Green, and So Saffron Smooth Card Stock
  • Basic Black Ink
  • Dimensionals
  • 2-3/6" Scallop Circle Punch
  • Ticket Corner Punch
  • Word Play Stamp Set
  • Travel Log Stamp Set (Summer Mini Available through August 31, 2011)

Stampin' Up! Hostess Benefits 2011-2012

Simple, Flexible and Fabulous!
That's the Best Way to Describe the
New Hostess Benefits

No more confusing Levels to choose from.
Hostess dollars can be applied to either exclusive special priced hostess items, all other catalog merchandise or a combination of both!
In addition hostess have the opportunity to purchase any item out of the catalog at 50% OFF starting with sales of $400 or more (See Chart Below).

So let's use an example of what may happen when you host a Stampin' Up! Workshop!

Lets assume you have $400 in sales, which is an easy goal to reach. With this workshop you would receive $65 in FREE merchandise of your choice out of any section of the book including the special discounted hostess stamp section, PLUS one 50% off item.

Hint:  How long have you wanted that GREAT Big Shot Machine...with the 50% discount it would only cost you $50. 
WOW, That is a Fabulous deal!!!

Remember you receive Hostess Benefits from your own personal order, a combination of friends orders, sales at workshops and classes held at your home or any combination of these possibilities.
