Catalogue Launches

Hi Everyone
Yesterday was our Stampin' Up! Regionals in Perth and it was FANTASTIC!! Had such a great time, as usual!! I was asked to do a presentation at Regionals this year on Catalgue Launches which was very nervewracking but all in all a good experience :)

I was asked by several people if I could post the photos that I showed in my presentation, so here they are :)

This is my Pick-a-Prize pot and was inspired by a similar pot made by Marelle Taylor. Each flower opens up to reveal a prize. Guests get to pick a flower if they book a workshop or place an order over $100. The prize is redeemable at their workshop (for bookings) or on their next order over $50 (on sales)

My Book to Look scratchies are just done up on my computer, the scratchie parts are stickers which I got from Ebay.

These are Sweet Treat Flowers which were also inspired by Marelle, but I changed them a bit to include a prize. As you can see, the prize is revealed once the lollies are removed (and eaten!!)

This is the Book to Look Cake which was inspired by Sharon Davis. Customers get to choose a piece of cake if they book a workshop. Inside each slice is a gift such as ribbons, embellishments or a gift to be redeemed at their workshop.

I had a few people ask me what sorts of gifts I use in my pots/scratchies/flowers/cakes. I tend to make the gifts between $5-$10, most of the prizes being of the lower value with a few of the higher value prizes.
As there aren't that many items priced between $5-$10 in the catalogue, I will break items up to make them a lower value. Some examples of prizes are Stampin' Write Markers, Pack of Dimensionals, 20 Whisper White Envelopes, Mixed Pack of A5 Cardstock (20 sheets), 5m of Assorted Ribbon, Pot of Dazzling Diamonds or a Roll of 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon (top prize)

Ok, next were the gifts I gave when purchasing the catalogue at the IB&C launches.

First was the New Catalogue Survival Kit which was shared with me by Rhonda Statham. This held all sorts of little items along with the new catalogue such as a pen, post its, tabs for the sections of the catalogue, chocolate, coffee sachet etc...
This was the incentive I used at my latest launch for customers who bought the IB&C. I got the idea from Nicole Heady of PapertreyInk. Very easy and all the customers loved them :)

Next, was food!!

How cute are these cupcakes!! I am addicted to these cupcake toppers right now, I have made them for just about every occassion that called for cupcakes!!

Lastly were these cute covered Kit Kats that I saw on Dawn Griffith's website. I thought they were a cute addition to the goodies I served at my launch :)

I hope some of you found my presentation helpful yesterday. I had quite a few lovely people stop me and tell me they enjoyed it which was really lovely as I am sure you can all imagine how nervous I felt at standing up there!! Looking forward to next year as I am sure I am off the hook for a while now!

I will be back in the next couple of days to share the swap I did for Regionals with you, until then enjoy your week
