When I was at Leadership, one of the displays had a magnificent banner made with the Big Shot machine and the new Paper Doily Die. I tried to recreate it for my Open House that I had last week. I really like how it turned out. And, outside of poking out all the little pieces, it was easy and fairly quick to make. Before I get too far down into this post, I’ll give you my supply list.
Paper: Crumb Cake (120953), Whisper White (100730), Poppy Parade (119793)
Tools: Big Shot Machine (113439), Scallop Circle Die (113468), Paper Doily Die (125592), Simple Letter Alphabet Dies (115960)
Accessories: White Baker’s Twine (124262)
Adhesives: Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the part of the circle that is wrapped around the Baker’s Twine (104430)
This is the display I used the banner on . . . all kinds of swap samples from the Occasions Mini Catalog.
This pictures shows my 50-50-50 Board. For every $50 product increment that my customers purchase, they get a ticket and chance to win a $50 gift certificate! The board is full now and I’ll do the drawing tomorrow at my Big Shot Class/Club. The cards to the right are remade swap cards that I give to my customers as a thank you for donating to our local food shelf. We’ve donated 643 pounds of food so far to our local food shelf . . . and 717 cards have been donated to local charities. Aren’t my customers awesome?
This is a display of cards I’ve recently made. I found this shelf at an antique store for just $14!! Can you believe it? It’s just PERFECT for displaying my cards.
These little baskets each held a package of buttons or brads and were my door prize giveaways at my Open House.
Here’s a view of my bookshelf, card buffet display and Sale–a-bration display. The blue boxes on my bookshelf hold all the supplies that my customers need to create their cards when they come to my monthly Card Buffets. The boxes on the top shelf of the book cases hold all my swaps and personal cards. They are organized alphabetically by stamp sets so that if a customer wants to see samples of a particular stamp set, it’s quick to access.
This is a view of where my customers did their two free make and takes. My Open House was from 3pm to 9pm and I had about 25 people come through during that time period so it was never too crowded . . . plenty of room to stamp, visit and look at the displays.
This is where my customers can visit, have a cup of coffee, look over the catalogs, place orders and much on chocolates. Notice the paper doilies under the treat holders? LOVE that doily die!
A large display showing off a bunch of Occasions Mini items, Leadership gifts, a starter kit, and a booking incentive.
I LOVE my Leadership gifts. The bag and notebook holder are made from fabric that will be debuting in the big catalog. So fresh and summery!
I have a big tin container that I put a Starter Kit display into. You can join Stampin’ Up! for just $125 during Sale-a-bration. It’s a great deal and a great opportunity to get your products at a discount . . . or to try out having a stamp from home business!
I always offer my hostesses a really special deal when they hostess a workshop during Sale-a-bration and this is my display for it.
This year, Stampin’ Up! is offering an amazing deal for hostesses, too! A free shopping bag with a $150 workshop and THREE Sale-a-bration items . . . Fresh Vintage Stamp set, the Ribbons and Brads Everyday Enchantment pack and the Everyday Enchantment Designer Series paper for all workshops that are $400 or more. WOW!
Our Leadership Make and Takes centered around the Blossom Builder Kit. Here are a few of the flower cards I made along with a few flowers extra flowers. They are fun to make!
I hope you enjoyed taking this Open House tour through my Stamping to Share Studio! Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!!
