On Friday I held Annual Catalogue Launch Parties at my house, which included hands-on exploration of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue products, participating in games, winning prizes and more!  Here's some glimpses from the event...

Annual Catalogue Launch Party

All attendees received a goodie bag with a new catalogue, game sheets, prize draw entry and make-and-take kits.  Take a look at those gorgeous In Color ribbons!

I popped a little gift inside each of the bags too - a Catalogue Survival Kit.  "What is that?", you ask.  It's a little bit of fun; each little pack has:

  1. Sticky Note - to mark your favourite items.
  2. A Wish List - to keep track of your must-have items.
  3. Pen - how else can we fill in that fun wish list?
  4. Chocolate - because everything (even stamping!) is better with chocolate.  Seriously.
  5. Bandage - for paper cuts while rapidly flipping through the pages.
  6. Tea Bag - to help you relax while you use this gorgeous book and search through the endless number of creative projects.

See the pen?  The barrels are filled with the crackled patterned paper from the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack...

Okay, so I've mentioned games and prizes a couple of times now, what else would you have at a party!  At the Launch Parties I gave away spot prizes, which included the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and Balloon Honeycomb Embellishments with a generous length of Pacific Point 1/4” Stitched Edge Ribbon wrapped around it.  You can see all these fun products in the Birthday Memories Suite on page 5 of the Annual Catalogue.

Plus, everyone who attended an Annual Catalogue Launch Party had multiple chances to put their name into a prize draw, which was drawn at the end of each event.  The winners received the fabulous Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and a limited edition, collapsible Gold Polka Dot Rubbish Bin, with three lengths of 3/8” Mini Chevron Ribbon in Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Old Olive...

I had such a fabulous time at the Annual Catalogue Launch Parties and had some lovely feedback to say the same.  I've also heard that there are a lot of well-thumbed and marked catalogues out there!  Have you got yours?

2017-2018 Annual Catalogue - click to view

Are you having trouble with the length of your wish list after viewing all the yumminess in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue?  I have two solutions for you...

  1. Join my team!  You can get your products at a discount, earn some money to help purchase your "must haves" and meet some new friends along the way.  Click HERE to find out more and then contact me for a no-obligation information pack.
  2. Earn more rewards!  Take advantage of the June promotion... get some friends together, pour over the catalogue, combine your orders and get an extra $50 to spend when the orders total more than $500 (excluding shipping and handling).  How does that work?  For a $500 order, normally you get 10% of the order total as Stampin' Rewards, that's $50.  But for June, you get an EXTRA $50 Stampin' Rewards, so you will get to spend $100 an anything in the catalogue.  Take a look at all the details then contact me to place your orders...
