How quick and easy were these cards to make ? Well seeing as you weren’t with me when I made them, I’ll tell you – 20 cards in one evening !
This set was made using:-
Festival of Prints papers from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue (£6.25 for a book of 48 sheets), Greetings of the Season stamp set (£13.95 mounted, £10.95 unmounted), and Apothecary Accents Framelits (£20.95) … this framelit set has become an absolute favourite with me, and it is fabulous for both scrapbooking and card making !
This second set has (again) been made using the fabulous Apothecary framelits, the Greetings of the Season stamp set, but I’ve added some grosgrain ribbon, and I have embossed the largest frame using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder (£7.50). I have used Real Red and Island Indigo NEW ink pads.
These cards were so easy to make, and so thankfully quick to make up !

Why not Spread the Cost whilst earning FREE stash ?
My next Stampers Group (Virtual Hostess Club) is due to begin in December. Just in time to coincide with Sale-a-Bration which starts in January.
The last round is now coming to an end and it's proved extremely popular with particpants, most of whom have already signed up again.
The exciting thing about a Virtual Hostess Club is that every member gets to receive at least £25 of hostess benefits at some point during the club period.
Places are limited, so please read the following carefully and let me know as soon as possible if you’d like to reserve a slot.
How it works
Each member agrees to spend a minimum of £15 on Stampin’ Up!® products per month for the 10-month duration of the club OR £25 per month for 6 months for the Stampers 6 Group. Having 10 members (or 6 members for the Stampers 6 group) means that the club’s monthly orders qualify for hostess benefits. On joining the club, you will be allocated at random a month to be hostess. By the end of the club, everyone will have taken a turn at getting the freebies!
There are other exciting benefits, too. Here’s the full list:
- Guaranteed hostess benefits for your allocated month – these can be increased if you choose to hold a party during your host month
- FREE catalogues! Specifically, an Autumn/Winter Catalogue; Annual Catalogue (released in October) and Spring/Summer catalogue (released February). Obviously, you will get these early - another privilege of being part of the club.
- £5 discount to classes charged at £25 or over.
- FREE shipping (from SU to me – if you need your goods to be posted to your house, this will be charged at cost)
All this for the price of a couple of bottles of wine a month - and lasts longer, too!
Joining the club is great way to build up your stamping supplies while spreading the cost. One month you could purchase a large punch, a stamp set another month, or simply stock up on cardstock or adhesives.
And, by holding an actual party during your hostess month you’ll know your total will be at least £150 before anyone even walks through the door, giving you even more hostess benefits.
If you’d like to join the club, please let me know as soon as possible. I will keep the number of slots available updated on my blog so you can check progress. Don't live nearby? Don't worry, you can still join - just pay the actual cost of me posting your products to your UK address.
Frequently asked questions
What will it cost me?
You will buy £15 minimum of products each month. There is no obligation to spend more than this, ever. Your products will be delivered to me (so that the order will qualify for hostess benefits) and I will post them out to you. Postage for this will be charged at cost. If you live nearby, of course, you can collect your purchases from my house or from one of my events.
I enjoy holding or attending real workshops, so why should I join a Virtual Club?
Don’t worry – you can still do both! If you live within reasonable driving distance for me, why not book a workshop in your host month? The benefit of being a club member is that your workshop is guaranteed to reach hostess benefit level (ie £150) before the first guest even walks through the door! Any sales achieved at your workshop can be added to the club order to give you even more hostess benefits, as well as a fun evening with friends.
Who is the club for?
The club is for crafters who want to spread their costs... it’s for stampers who want hostess benefits but may not be able to host a party for various reasons... it’s for people who want to boost their workshop totals and get more hostess benefits... it’s for those who have a big wish list... it’s for people who love Stampin’ Up!® products so much that they need a regular fix! And, of course, the club is for anyone in the UK (unfortunately, I’m unable to ship products outside of the UK).
Can I choose my host month?
The months will be allocated at random but if you would prefer a different month and can arrange a swap with another member, that is fine.
What to do next...
Send me an email and I’ll be in touch! The club will start when there are 10 people willing to commit, preferably in September to coincide with the new Autumn/Winter catalogue (a new-style, bigger "mini"). Be quick – if I get more than 10 people, latecomers will have to go on a waiting list for a second club and this could take some time to fill.
