Hostess a Party

Hostess Perks  
                      
Would you like to earn free stamps and merchandise?  Would you like to have some friends over for a party?  If so, a Close To My Heart gathering is just for you!  Both in-home parties and catalog only parties qualify for these wonderful hostess perks.  Order your Party in a Box kit to get all the business supplies you'll need for your party, plus the supplies for Make & Takes, and an incentive stamp from the Postmark stamp set for each of your guests.  If you would like to have a Theme Party,  I am currently doing Summer, Tropical, Chocoholic, and Glamour Girls themes.  I will work with you to choose your refreshments to go along with your theme. 
Would you like to have a party, but don't want to clean the house?  Have an online party in my party room and I'll invite all of your friends.  The Close To My Heart hostess program is the best around. Check out what we have to offer.

FAQ:
What is Hostess Rewards Plus!?
Hostess Rewards Plus! is a new program offering qualifying hostesses fantastic savings on specially collected product bundles, known as Hostess Collections, or an incredible 50% off any item in the current Idea Books.
Will my hostess still receive free product?
Yes. Every Gathering over $150 US in product sales, exclusive of shipping, handling, and taxes, will qualify for our hostess rewards program. But in addition, hostesses with sales of $350 or more will also have the option to either purchase any item in the current Idea Books at 50% off or choose from a special group of products known as Hostess Collections. See the chart above or in the Idea Book.
What is considered free product?
All My Acrylix® stamp sets, Exclusive Inks™ stamp pads, reinkers and markers (singles only), My Reflections® Level 1 kits, and My Reflections® paper packets, My Stickease®, My Acrylix® Acrylic Blocks, and cardstock are available as free product to qualifying hostesses.
What are Hostess Collections?
We have selected special groups of products and made them available to hostesses at an incredible 50% off retail.
How will hostesses benefit even more with this new Hostess Rewards plan?
This is the exciting part! With the enhanced program, you are in a position to truly maximize the sales from your party by earning even more FREE products than ever before! 
As an example, under the current plan, if Sally has a $350 Gathering and she wants to choose a Rolling Carryall as her reward, she can apply the $60 in product credit to the $129.95 retail price, and pay the difference of $69.95. She would save $60 and will be pleased with that savings
However, under the new plan, Sally will receive $60 in Select Product Credit so she can choose a mix of stamps, inks, and papers up to $60 in retail value. But she has also qualified to receive any one item in that catalog at 50% off retail: she chooses the Rolling Carryall, but pays approximately $65 for it—LESS than she would have under the current plan, plus now she’ll also get $60 in free stamps, papers, and inks! Even with the exact same $350 US Gathering totals, she will receive more than double the value in free products.

How long will each Hostess Collection be available?
Each Idea Book will include four amazing Hostess Collections, which will be available only as long as the Idea Book is active. That means three times a year, hostesses will be able to choose from four incredible new Hostess Collections at wonderful prices.
How is shipping handled for Hostess Rewards and Hostess Rewards Plus! items?
All Hostess Rewards and Hostess Rewards Plus! will continue to be shipped FREE to qualifying hostesses.
How is tax handled?
Select Product Credit items are required by law to be taxed at the full retail amount in the US. In Canada, free items are not taxable. For Hostess Collections and 50% off items, tax is only charged on the discounted amount paid, not full retail value.
