For those not familiar with the RETIRING LIST.......here are a few details!

These sets do not go on sale, they are simply retired.......once the catty expires......THEY ARE GONE!!! Last date to order Aug. 10th! SU also puts out a DISCONTINUED LIST for accessories, it will be available on June 21st! The discontinued list operates on a WHILE IT LAST basis.......if you want something on it, you best act fast!!!

Rochelle and I have decided to offer a one day only 20% off special! This special applies ONLY to retiring stamps sets, and discontinued accessories!

Date: June 28th

You will be able to order from these lists until Aug. 10, but regular prices will apply!!!

8. Monthly Scrapbooking Kits(offered by Donna)
Starting in Aug. I will be offering monthy scrapbooking kits using bits & pieces of ribbon packs, pattern paper packs, Scrappin' Kits, and many other kit type SU products!

These kits will give you the opportunity to try different products without ordering the WHOLE package!!!

Each month I will list the products you will recieve in the next months kit.......you will need to pre-order(and pre-pay)in order for me to know how many kits to order!!!!

Those purchasing the kits will have an option to come to a FREE class held the month after the kit is ordered!!! During the class you can duplicate the layout(project)I have made with the same kit, or work on your own(your choice)!!!!

There is no monthly commitment, you are welcome to pick and choose which kit you like and take part on that month!!! The content of each kit will be offered to you at a 10% savings!! There will be an extra 10% savings for those that order all 6 of the kits from the current catalog(Aug. - Jan. for the 1st round)!!!

Pattern paper(& most embellishments)included in the kits will feature ALL NEW products.......I will be sure to offer a wide variety of themes hoefully following current seasons/holidays(not all girls, I promise)!!!!

9. NEW clubs will start in Aug.(with the new catty)!
Club members meet once per month and agree to place a minimum order, there is no class fee!! If the current hostess benifets stay the same($200 workshop)the minimum order will be $33.50 per crafter per month!

Each member of the club will have a desginated month in which they will receive the hostess benefits.......free hostess sets, and free product!!

Each club will run for 6 months(the duration of the catty)!

There will be 6 crafters per club!

There will be a CARD CLUB & a SCRAPBOOKING CLUB(run seperately)!

We will meet during the 3rd week of the month......cards on Tuesday, Scrapbooking on Weds.

10. Tidbits from Donna
Crafters Garage Sale-June 14th
Thanks so much for your support at the garage sale last weekend........much appreciated!!! Shoppers were many, most went home with at least a FEW goodies!!! For those that brought inventory......thank you, the success of the garage sale was because you participated......hope you enjoy your SU Gift Certificate!!!

Lost & Found
Donna is missing a stamp from one her stamp sets..........I think it was accidently added to a retiring set(from last year), and sold at the Retiring Garage Sale!!!

The missing stamp is from Office Accoutrement(page 124 of current catty), it the dae stamp(set up like a calendar)!!! If you by chance have it, and are willing to return it I would appreciate it!

Thanks in advance for checking!!!

The end of class! (from Donna)
Ladies, first off I have to say I do love to visit and I am as guilty as anyone for some our late nights!! I do however need to make a few changes to our current END OF CLASS routine!!! I do believe that most classes can be completed within a 2-2.5 hour time frame, making it possible to wind things up by 9:00-9:30!!! Scrap-A-Stack/crop nights/specialty classes will be considered an exception as we definately need more time!!! Please do not take offense to the changes, but I really do need to implement a time frame for my in home events......thank you for your understanding!!!

Please bring your ADHESIVE!
All events hosted by Donna require that you bring your own adhesive!!! If by chance you forget(or don't have any)you are welcome to use the classroom supply of SU glue sticks, or purchase a cartridge of SU Snail adhesive(you can borrow the dispenser during the class)!!! I will be sure to have an supply of Snail for purchase, cost being $6.15(shipping & taxes included)!

If you have made it to the bottom.........CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I appreciate your time!!

Have a great day, and HAPPY STAMPIN'
