I often get asked by my demonstrators (DOstamperSTARS), what should I order out of the mini catalogs? That can sometimes be a difficult decision to make. We often want it all, but is that really necessary to run our Stampin' Up! business? For some demonstrators, it is their hobby, so I advise them to purchase what they like. For the business minded demonstrator, I suggest purchasing a variety of items so as to showcase a variety of styles.
From the 2009 Holiday Mini Catalog, I highly recommended the beautiful stamp set "Berry Christmas" and matching accessories (Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper, Petals-a-Plenty texture impressions folder, Merry Details sizzlet die & Merry embosslit) found on pg 20-21. And of course, don't forget to stock up on cardstock and ink to match the designer series paper (Soft Suede and Real Red). One of my DOstamperSTARS, Laurie Zoellmer, took my advice with her purchases, and made some beautiful projects with it!
I found that I was the recipient of several of her wonderful projects. So today and tomorrow, I'll be sharing some of her work.
Isn't this a cute gift card holder?
The greeting is from the Hostess Level One stamp set: Christmas Punches
