How to shop and How the Hostess Code works!!!
I thought I’d do a little blog on how to shop with me and using the Hostess Code. I haven't done this before so you might not know about the little extras you could be entitled to. so I thought I’d fix that and make it nice and clear!

I like to send out a hand made thank you card or a hand made thank you gift to any of my customers purchase in the month, whether you’re a code user or not, but, this is a little extra Bonus!
How the Hostess Code works!!!
At the end of the month you could be entitled to some extra free gifts, yes, actual real life Stampin’ Up! products free! every month. The more people who use the code, the higher the total goes and then everyone gets a share. And here’s another little extra bonus, if you order more than once in a month, you’ll get a product goodie for each order that you use the code on!
I try to send out all different products - gems, ribbon, or occasionally I may send a tool out – stampin mist, Dimensionals, stapler, stamp a ma jig…. and as many of the hostess stamp set exclusives as possible!
So I bet you want to know how this works!!! here goes...
how to use the code –
If your order is UNDER £150, you simply use the code in the top right hand of this page at the end of your check out page.
Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there, But, at the end of the month (this is the exciting bit), I close off the code and then work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products (yes free products, that will be coming to you).
If we have more people who join the code, the bigger the rewards gets!!! because everyone is pulling together that little bit extra! I cover the cost of P&P on your treats, so there is no additional postage fees, just sit back and enjoy the little treats that come to your door!
It’s super simple!
PS, please make sure that you haven’t clicked ‘no contact' because by law, I will NOT be able to send you the parcel of goodies…
Happy Stamping xx
