Punch Club 2012!

Stampin' Up! has 53 punches! ( You have your basic shapes, circles, squares, hearts ect., the edge punches, builder punches and punches that coordinate with stamp sets. I LOVE punches!!! They make it easy & fast to make cards. Since I've started collecting Stampin' Up! punches I find myself using them ALL the time! They make it so EASY! I believe so much in the punches that I'm starting a Punch Club in 2012! Here is how it works...

• We need 10 members in the club, this will help to keep each individual month cost as low as possible. 

• Each month someone in the club will be "host" and they will receive all the benefits of the Host Program (first person to sign up gets January, second gets Feb, ect). The month that you are host you can collect additional orders or even host a workshop to earn additional free products.

• Your order total each month has to be at least $16.95. So, if you'd like to get the Small Hear Punch for $5.95 you will need to another punch (or some other products, maybe some card stock) to get your sub total over $16.95.

• Everyone will make a list of the 12 punches you'd like to receive this year. And the second/third week of month I will notify you about which punch you will be getting and see if there is anything else you need and you can make payment with a check or debt card.

Once everyone's orders & payments are in then I will order the loot :) and about a week later I'll receive everything and begin dropping off the orders. If you are not local then we can talk about some options to get your order to you! 

Any questions let me know, this is my first club so I'm sure there is something I've forgot to mention!

I will be making projects using Stampin' Up! punches to help inspire & show some different ways to use the punches. And if anyone in the club makes a project using Stampin' Up! punches just send it to me and I'll post it here for everyone to see.

Just post a comment to let me know you want on the list!
Here is a standard size card set that I made mixing current & retired products. The main stamped image, the "thank you" & flower pot of tulips, is a retired set, along with the dots at the bottom. The sentiment "you're the BEST!" is from a current set. All the paper and the shape that I stamped the "you're the BEST!" on is current, I punched with the Decorative Label Punch twice and then I layered one on top of the other. I used a black pen to outline the shape on the green card stock just to add some interest. I made 6 cards changing the pattered paper & color of the the tulips. Then I made this "magazine holder" to put the cards & envelopes in. I punched again with the Decorative Label Punch and stamped "thank you", then I folded it in half and adhered it to the front of the card holder so you know what kind of cards in that holder.
