Pam and I have been doing Stampin’ Up Bingo for several years, both in person as well as virtual. We’ve always had a good turnout for our event, but yesterday was our largest Bingo ever! We have always made it a night to give back to our customers and friends so all of the fees, including commission and hostess rewards have been used to treat our guests. As long as we have the 2 day postage covered, we are good! And with more people participating, the more money we have to put our goody bags together, along with prizes and who can gather for a stamping even without prize patrols????
Our Goody Bags Are More Like Great Bags!
Each guest received 1/6 of a package of DSP along with 18 sheets of cardstock (three pieces of 6 different coordinating colors). When you include three different DSPs and all of the coordinating cardstock, they have a great selection to work with! We also were able to give each guest a full package of their own dimensionals to use!
Everyone received an envelope with a punched deer, and prizes were based on the card stock color. Prize patrols included 1/2 package of the the Soft Sea Foam/Pool Party cards and envelopes, 1/2 package of the silver/gold foiled DSP, 1/4 package of the Rings Of Love DSP, AND one lucky winner received the Tree Lot Dies! Everyone received a second Prize Patrol with a DSP 4×6 pack of the Celebrate Everything Hostess DSP.
Make And Takes Are Always Included!
Six Games Of Bingo Equals Six Winners!!!
Our Bingo Caller Johnna Bixenman Clarke was unable to be with us last night, so our good friend Linda Ellis volunteered and she did a wonderful job and the best part – it took the stress off Pam and I!! Neither of enjoy that part of Bingo! LOL! All prizes came from the new Holiday Mini Catalog, and were valued progressively higher, ’til the final game when someone won a new bundle. And this year, we had a very special drawing for a very popular bundle!
Special Drawing For Our Local Food Pantry Donations!
Guests were encouraged to bring donations for our local food pantry and they received one ticket per item. By the time we were ready to start, we had over 200 items donated, and the winner received the Boughs Of Holly Bundle!!! Thank you to everyone who participated in our Holiday Bingo, special thanks to Linda, and congratulations to our winners! You made last night extra special!!!!
Until next time, keep stamping, keep crafting, and God Bless!!!
