So what exactly are Stampin’ Up! workshops? It’s perhaps the best and most fun way to earn Stampin’ Rewards!
Stampin’ Up! Workshops
Stampin’ Up! workshops are fun events that are usually held in the hostess’ home (or mine) where the hostess invites friends and family over to make cards, crafts, gifts, scrapbooks, and other paper crafting projects. The attendees get to play with stamping supplies, try out new techniques, and learn about Stampin’ Up! products while enjoying each others’ company. The hostess also earns Stampin’ Rewards for a total orders that add up to $200 or more.
How does it usually work?
The hostess (YOU!) invites guests (your friends and family) for a few hours of fun crafting. The demonstrator (ME!) prepares all the project supplies and bring them with me to the event including beautiful catalogues you and your guests can browse through, lots of fun ideas, and samples.
After booking the event, we’ll start planning the workshop. The hostess is responsible for inviting the guests, but invitation cards can be provided if needed (and preparing simple snacks would be nice). A quick phone call to remind them a day or two before the scheduled event is recommended. Workshops are usually 2 to 2.5 hours long – an hour or so for crafting and another hour or so for demonstration, a small catalogue tour, and ordering.
Why host a workshop?
Well aside from the fantabulous time we’ll all have creating beautiful projects with your friends and family in the comfort of your own home (or mine), you will also earn Stampin’ Rewards which you can use to purchase EXCLUSIVE hostess products or any other item available in any current catalogue. You also get to earn Stamp Points with me which you can redeem more FREE Stampin’ Up! products.
Techniques Workshop: This workshop is usually for beginner stampers. Not only will you and your guests try out three different stamping techniques, everyone will also create one simple card that you get to take home with you. (FREE)
Make & Take Workshop: This workshop is for beginner stampers or those with some stamping experience. It focuses on a specific Stampin’ Up! product that is used to try out three different stamping techniques. The hostess can request the product and/or techniques demonstrated. Everyone in the workshop will also create one simple project to take home with them. The hostess can either choose to use a product you already have, order one to use for the workshop and keep for yourself, or use any of what I already have. (FREE)
Three’s A Party Workshop: This workshop is for those with some stamping experience. Using various stamping techniques, everyone makes three stamping projects that they get to take home with them. ($10/person OR a minimum order of $25 before shipping and taxes)
Classes: These classes are for those who want to have a stack of cards on hand ready for those times when you need a card quickly and have no time to make one. The hostess can pick a card theme (Christmas, New Year, birthday, sympathy, thank you, a combination of themes, etc.) and the cards usually have simple designs so we can finish them on time. Envelopes are included, which can be decorated as well.
- Make 8 cards: 2 each of 4 designs ($20)
- Make 10 cards: 5 each of 2 designs ($22)
- Make 12 cards: 4 each of 3 designs (25)
Kit Classes: In kit classes, we use kits from the catalogue that Stampin’ Up! already measured, cut, and coordinated for us. They are all super fun from the simple standards kits to the more involved project kits, you are sure to have fun with your guests! The hostess can choose to buy your own stamp set and/or inks to use for the class and keep for herself after or we could always use mine.
Catalogue Party: Here’s a way to earn Stampin’ Rewards without having to host a workshop. You will receive a copy of the current catalogue/s and all you have to do is pass it around to your friends and family and collect orders from them. As long as the orders add up to at least $200, you instantly earn Stampin’ Rewards! If you can get a total of $550, you also get a 50% OFF from any item from the current catalogue/s – perfect time to invest in some of the pricier tools like the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.
