Stamp Club

A new Stamp Club is scheduled to commence in February. Some members will be retiring or taking up as demonstrators so there are positions available. 

What's Stamp Club? 

The cutest description I've heard to describe the Stamp Club is a "Virtual Party" each month! 6 members make a commitment to buy $50 worth of products per month ... amounting to a $300 order each month. The 6 members then take turns being the hostess each month to take advantage of the hostess benefits (at least $50 to spend on your choice of products). 

Please let me know asap if you'd like to be a member for the February - July period. 

Class Schedule
New Year ... New Format 

Classes commence on Friday 8 February for the 10am and 7.30pm classes. I am thinking of shifting the Friday evening classes (currently fortnightly) to 10am Sunday mornings on a monthly basis but for the moment, it will remain as is. The Friday 10am class will remain weekly. 

Classes will be restricted to 7 students. I'll prepare 7 kits per class and if there are less then 7 students in a class, the kits can be purchased by people not attending. Please make sure you book in for each class to confirm your seat.

I'm also asking that you put together a "Class Tool Kit" that contains:- 
  1. Bone folder;
  2. Paper trimmer with scorer; 
  3. Tape / SNAIL adhesive;
  4. Stampin' Dimensionals / pop-up dots; 
  5. Mini glue dots; 
  6. Tombow Multi liquid glue (or similar); 
  7. Paper-piercing tool and mat; 
  8. Scissors; 
  9. Craft knife; 
  10. Stamp-a-ma-jig; 
  11. Tweezers; 
  12. Distressing tool; 
  13. Pearls / Rhinestones if you like to add them to everything;
  14. Blender pen; 
  15. Aqua-painter; and
  16. Current catalgoue(s). 
Happy days. 

Hope you're fitting in heaps of time at the craft table! Yours truly is looking forward to school returning so I can also have some quality time at the craft table!

I'll be holding a fundraising event for my friend, Doreen Deede, in February. Doreen is a single Mum caring for her beautiful daughter, Emma. Emma has quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy and generalized Dystonia. As a single Mum, Doreen is in constant need of funding to support Emma's ongoing therapy. 

Join us for a few hours to share the love with Doreen - we'll be making 3 cards for $20 with the proceeds going to Emma's trust fund. I haven't confirmed a date with Leigh at Plan B Cafe yet so watch this space for further details. 

I'm off on our cruise tomorrow. I'll be signing into the internet cafe each day to check emails and place orders while I'm away so feel free to stay in touch! I have been processing most of the orders over the holidays as "Customer Orders" so they'll be sent directly to you.

Happy days.
