Grandma's Rocking Chair - January 8, 2017 - What is an Open House

Today I had my Open House to look at the new Occasion Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  I had my new toys out from the Occasion Catalog and also my free items that I got from Sale-A-Bration. I had it all set up for my guest.  The area where we sit down and play games and do the make & takes.

The area with all my samples and all my new toys.

Then the area to spend Stamping Bucks. 

Everyone could earn Stamping bucks.  How?  Coming to the Open House, Finishing the Maze Game, purchasing Occasion a stamp sets, placing an order and Joining the Happening Stampers.  I would like to welcome Jenn to the Happening Stampers as she joined during this Open House - her goal was to get the Big Shot the cheapest she could.  For $99 (no Shipping Cost) she got $125 worth of Stampin' Up! product one of the things she got was the Big Shot ($110 plus shipping so she saved some money and got 2 embossing folders also.  Then during Sale-A-Bration she got 2 free stamp sets  such a deal.  Click Here if you are interested in a great deal. 

We had a great game and everyone played.  We made 2 Make & Takes.
