Trying Something New!!



Thanks so Much for stopping by!

For those who are here for the first time, 

my name is Annette Ball, I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in Canada.  Welcome to 

Stampin' with the Bees.   

Thanks so much to Angie McKenzie for inviting me to participate in the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!!  I was so excited to be asked!! 

Today's Theme is to shake things up and try something new for you!

With the introduction of the new July-December Mini catalogue a couple friends and I decided to work together and have a catalogue Launch Party on Facebook!!

We had participation Posts to encourage people to comment and win prizes, Facebook Live demonstrations, we share Stampin' Up! video's and samples of new products.

It was a fun packed 3 days!! So I thought I would share a snapshot of the things we created and shared with our customers!

We asked out customers to choose between furry friends and fall foilage

We wanted to make sure all our customers had a catalogue in hand

Sweet little stockings suite and the Playful alphabet dies

Merry Snowflake bundle and Be Dazzling paper

Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite

I used the Gingerbread and Peppermint Bundle in Polished Pink and the Wonder & Whimsy Specialty dsp

Snowbuddy Better with the Wonder & Whimsy Specialty dsp

And finally the Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite with the Be Dazzling paper.

 We finished with 114 customers and a very busy 3 days of replying to comments, tallying participation, Facebook Lives and awarding prizes to our amazing customers!!

 Here are a few comments; 

"Thank you for your hard work and your great tips and inspiration! Thoroughly enjoyed it all!"

"I'm needing to increase my storage now! But it is a great hobby!!"

"Was lots of fun learned lots also saw beautiful cards"

We also included information on Saleabration, Paper Pumpkin, the Kits collection, Hosting a Party, Joining Stampin' Up! and a Free Gift with purchase offer!!

We had as much fun as our customers. Total Success!!

I hope you enjoyed my post today and are inspired you to stamp and create.
