Monthly Workshop Groups *info*

Want to earn FREE product for placing monthly orders? 
Do you love to scrapbook or make cards but don't seem to get around to doing it? 
Read on to find out how you can get creating and earning product while you're at it!!

Over the past several years I have attended and hosted different Hostess Groups and I hope to offer you a couple of choices...the following are the basics of how Hostess Clubs work:

I currently offer different styles of clubs would LOVE to have you join!! If you have a group of friends that might be interested, we can arrange a day of the month that works best for your group as well.

  • The minimum monthly order, depending on the Club size is between $20-$35 (before shipping/taxes) per month. 
  • Each month you will take turns being 'the Hostess'. You will earn at least $25 in FREE Close To My Heart products when it is your turn to be the Hostess. You can choose from stamp sets, paper packets, ink pads, markers, cardstock, acrylic blocks and more. 
  • WORKSHOP CLUBS will meet at my home at 6:30PM on our arranged day of the week
  • SCRAP YOUR STASH Club will meet at my home at 6:30PM on the third Thursday of each month (depending on holiday conflicts) 

    In addition to being the hostess, all members will receive:

    * FREE Idea Books before other customers!!

    Annual Inspirations catalog is released every August and 'live' to customers September 1st ... at that time our Holiday Expressions catalog comes out too. We have one more Seasonal Expressions catalog which is released in Spring.

    * A FREE gift just for joining!!

    * Stamp of the Month for FREE during your hostess month!!

    * One month of being the hostess earning at least $25 in FREE products!! (Hostesses usually average $40-$60 or more in FREE Product plus half-priced items.)

    * Periodic sales, challenges, sample products and goodies from me!!

    * No Home Gathering is required for this club...just send me your order via e-mail by the 15th of each month!! (To ensure orders are received in time for each upcoming Workshop, I need to have an order deadline date.)

    please note: In the event that I do not receive your order by the 15th of the month, Basic Workshops kits will be ordered for you.

    Hostess Group Option #1 - Scrapbooking Workshop Club 

    This group is for those of you that want to create scrapbook layouts with some of the new product that CTMH has in their catalog. We will be working with ONE of the paper collections* each month.
    Each Workshop will include a colour instructions to complete two-double page (12x12) layouts as well as an optional 3-D project, single page layout or card. 

    An example of a basic Workshop kit:

    * I will usually start with ONE of CTMH's paper collections of my choice for the first month, then consult the group for the remaining collections per month.

    **Each paper collection pack contains enough paper to create 2-double page layouts however, some additional products may be required to complete the extra bonus projects if you choose to do them.

    ***You have the option to create your own order to include some, all, or none of the Workshop kit items as long as you meet your $30 minimum.

    Hostess Group Option #2 - 'Scrap Your Stash' Club

    This group is for those of you that want to work with your own Stash each month, in other words, your own papers and embellishments.
    You would like to take advantage of the Hostess benefits that a monthly Club provides, but would like to be free to create your own layouts with your own 'Stash'
    I will have two layout designs completed for examples and will provide you with instructions or a sketch to complete your own layouts. 
    You will still meet monthly to scrapbook but are free to order what you want out of the catalog but still benefit with receiving Hostess Rewards AND you'll be getting some scrapbooking layouts done too!!!
    *You will need to place a $30 (before shipping/taxes) minimum order per month from the catalog

    Hostess Group Option #3 - No Commitment Club

    Everyone who places an order of $30 (before taxes and shipping) or more, between the 1st and 10th of any month automatically becomes a 'member'. All club 'members' are added to my ‘revolving’ rewards list with their order! The top name on the list receives that month’s Hostess Rewards (minimum of $25 in Select FREE Product!) as determined by the total orders received. Then for the next month, the hostess name will move to the bottom of the list and all the other names move up. Each month, names will continue to move up (and down) in this escalator fashion.

    Don’t have anything to order this month? No problem, your name simply remains in the current position on the rewards list and does not move up. Miss a second month? Your name will move to the bottom of the list and your move up to the top will start over.

    So how does this mean more rewards for you? If you are a regular purchaser and order every month or even every second month – you will be REWARDED! You can potentially earn the Hostess Rewards 2-4 times per year!

    This Club membership is open to both local and long distance members! Club members will be the first to receive each new Idea Book upon release! Every 6th order you place (or cumulative $180 in orders) – you’ll also receive a FREE Petite Perks stamp set (retail value $8 Cdn each) and a bonus Club gift from me. I will also have special offers and promotions throughout the year for Club Members ONLY!

    Qualifying purchases include all orders of $30 or more in Close to My Heart products (excluding online only clearance sales or cash and carry purchases at my events), all purchases of my custom workshop kits, and any of my class and workshop supply fees.

    Want to join? Still have question? Send me an EMAIL now and let me know! Orders are due on the 10th of each month

    Shop with me and be rewarded!!!
