Tonight is Inspiration Night, my monthly "downline" meeting, our first one since we've returned from Convention. Our theme is Christmas because its NEVER to early to start making preparations for the Holiday Season. This year I'm determined to start my holiday project planning earlier. That is something I often say but don't always commit to. However, I have a feeling this year will be different because our Handmade for the Holidays catalog is filled with so many amazing products that I just can't wait to play with.
This Home for the Holidays DSP (designer series paper) is by FAR my favorite new catalog item. I love the colors, the designs, especially the cute little santa and reindeer images. You will see this DSP featured in all seven of the projects I have designed for my October 17th HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS event in Waikiki.
At tonight's inspiration night I have a design team made up of five of my team members who joined me at Convention this year. I asked them to design a project using their favorite new Stampin' Up! Christmas products and I can't wait to see what they have come up with. I'll be sharing those projects with you on Wednesday so be sure to check back. As a thank you for their time to prepare a make and take, I am giving them this little treat bag filled with matching chocolate mint candies. This project features our In Color envelope paper and one of our tea lace dollies while all of their projects tonight will feature metallic foil dollies. Doillies are great embellishments for your Holiday projects.
Ahhhhh, this Santa is SOOOO cute..... he just makes me smile. In fact our entire catalog makes me giddy with excitement cause it is SO amazing.
So far the best reaction I've gotten is when I handed a copy of the catalog to my friend Shelly. As she was flipping through the pages she said, "you WEREN'T kidding, this book really is amazing, LOOK.... I have goosebumps and so far I want something from every page!"
I can relate cause I feel EXACTLY the same way.
Can't wait to get your hands on a copy? Did you know that when you join Stampin' Up! one of the perks is you get to be the first to get your hands on the new products, a month prior to their release date? If any of you are interested in learning more about the benefits of becoming a demonstrator and joining my stampin' ohana, be sure to let me know. I'd love to have you join my team.
Okay, I'm off to a fun evening with my Stamped With Aloha ohana! Thanks for stopping by and remember to check back on Wednesday for an update from tonight's Inspiration Night!
