I fell in love with these cute kids in the Seasons of Fun Hostess set once I finally noticed them in the back of the July to December Mini Catalog! Each Stampin’ Up! catalog always has so many AWESOME products that there are always a few that I manage to overlook. The Hostess Specials are always a great value too. The items are alway priced below what they would be if they weren’t a special value for hostesses. Did you know that you don’t HAVE to host a party to earn them? Any orders over $150 earn Hostess Rewards that can be redeemed towards any of the Hostess Specials OR use them towards any Stampin’ Up! product. I always like to look at the Hostess Specials FIRST though, to get the most bang for my buck!
