Annual Catalogue Launch

I did it!  I hosted my very first Catalogue Launch Party.  It was a roaring success, out of 15 RSVP's 10 people showed up and we had a FABULOUS time stamping, flicking through the catalogue pointing out our favourite things, and our not so favourite things (there's never many of those though).

It was a huge job and I could not have done it without the support of my AMAZING family :)

Sure, there are a few things I'd do differently next time, and yes I'd probably spend less time stressing about things that no one noticed lol - tablecloths - are they really that important? (they were to me!)  

Why don't you have a look and decide, leave your comments below and let me know what you think.

As Guests walked in, they saw - a beautiful bunch of Sunflowers, a framed "Statement of the Heart", a pile of catalogues - AKA The Guest of Honour, Lucky Door Prize Entries and a few frames - YELLOW of course to match my gorgeous Sunflower logo with details about upcoming classes.

Walking through to my Family Room, there were two trestle tables full of Stampin' Up! Amazing-ness!  I made sure that there were Class Samples, lots of samples using the NEW In-Colours, some older products - Punch Boards (which my customers can't get enough of!) in the back there are the Lucky Door Prizes - CURRENT product which again - they LOVED!

To show that there is more to Stampin' Up! than Card Making, I also had on display treat boxes, wrapped chocolates, bunting - who doesn't love colourful bunting?! and some beautiful posies made from the Daisy Punch - I can not get enough of this Suite - oh my gosh!

At the back of my Family Room, my kitchen table was set up as the Make and Take Table - and let me tell you, some serious fun was had here throughout the day!  My other FABULOUS team member and cousin Donna was brilliant in helping everyone with their make and takes, Big Shot newbies and stamping newbies - Donna was amazing with them all!

There were two different make and takes - one was a book mark featuring the In Colours so that everyone had samples to take home of the gorgeous colours.  And the other was a card using Delightful Daisy DSP and the gorgeous Dragonfly Die from Dragonfly Dreams - BUT I forgot to get photo's of those.

To finish up, we had Gabby's Cafe, Gab was the best hostess ever, no one went without a cup of tea or coffee, she made sure everyone had a snack while flicking their way through the catalogue and placing orders.  She really was the best help I could have asked for.

So, that's it.  My Catalogue Launch Party - I can't wait to do it again, we all had so much fun.  It has taken me a few days to get over the busy-ness of it all but I can't wait to get back into my Craft Room and get planning on some new classes for you all.

Thank you so much for popping in, please leave me some love by way of a comment.

See you soon xo
