Open Card Club concept - how it works.

Most of my clubs in the past have been traditional 6/30 clubs meaning that there were 6 members who were committed to spending $30/month for 6 months. We always made a great project at no extra cost, and had lots of fun. Sometimes I had people who wanted to join the club while we were in the middle and I didn't have a spot for them.

Well, now I am proud to announce my new “Non-Commit,” “Open” Creative Club which will allow anyone to join at any time with no monthly commitment. “How does it work?” you ask.
Here are the details...We will meet at my house the 3rd Tuesday or each month (for card club) and 4th Wed of each month (for scrapbooking club). There will be a make up class if you are unable to attend the your class. That will be the 3rd Friday of each month for both clubs.

You may join the club at any time and there is no commitment to stay in the club for any length of time or to place an order.

Card club:

There will be a $5 fee for the supplies used for the projects we make which will range from cards to small gift items, and more. If you place an order or $25 there will not be required to pay the $5 supply fee. It will be FREE.

Scrapbooking Club:

There is no requirement to place an order. However to complete the project you will need to order the supplies a month in advance. You choose the level that you want to purchase your product at (Basic, Better, Best) as seen above. The average cost of these supplies will be $30 - $40.


Both Clubs:

Each person who signs up for this club will have their name added to the bottom of the hostess list. The person whose name is on the top of the list will get the hostess rewards that month. In order for your name to keep its “place” on the list, you must place a $25 minimum order whether you attend the class that month or not. If you do not place a $25+ order that month, then your name goes down to the bottom of the list. If you do place a $25+ order, then your name continues to move up the list.


If you choose to join both clubs you will only be required to purchase the scrapbook supplies and pay the $5 fee for card club. Your name will go on the hostess rewards once unless you choose to purchase the minimum $25 for card club too. Then you will be on the hostess list 2 times.

If you have any questions, please contact me. See the Back Country layout below to see the project we will be making for September.
