There have been lots of changes at Stampin' Up! since we transitioned from the 2010-2011 catalogue to our all new exciting (full of yummy scrummy goodies) 2011-2012 catalogue. 
The biggest change for many is the new hostess benefits.  Remember in the past catalogues that you always had your eye on those Level 3 hostess gifts that required huge sales and were difficult to achieve sometimes..... well now you can earn them with ease.  By hosting or placing a qualifying order you can earn hostess POUNDS to spend on anything you would like in the catalogue or to buy seriously discounted exclusive hostess goodies which include those Level 3 sets.
These are now achievable by everyone. 
You don't even have to have a party if you don't want one, just gather some orders from your friends and submit them to me making sure that the total (excl P&P) is at least £150 and you can earn some hostess POUNDS that will instantly buy you any one of those elusive Level 3 gifts. 
Of course if you do collect a few orders from friends you might want to think about being a demonstrator and if you sign up this month you'll receive a bonus gift from Stampin' Up! of the newest 'in colour' ink pads and cardstock assortment pack worth £27.95. Look here for more details.

Today's card is made using one of those delish, exclusive hostess sets.  It's called Simply Soft and I've fallen in love with it.  It's a two step stampin' set and so you can use lots of colour combos and stamp combos to create your desired effect. 
It only £15 Hostess POUNDS for wood mount (Retail Value £24.95)
£12 Hostess POUNDS for clear mount

From an order of £150 you earn £25 Hostess POUNDS and so you still have free spends left for rhinestones, pearls, ink pads and brads to name but a few of the wonderful goodies on offer with our new Idea Book and Catalogue. 

Be one the of the first to earn this stamp set or one of the other wonderful new ones featured in the 2011-2012 Idea book.  Contact me for more details of how to order, book a party or join my team.
