It’s finally here!!! Hot Off The Press’ 2014 Girlfriends Getaway is this Saturday and let me tell you – our entire office has been swept up in a whirlwind of preparation for our favorite annual event! The design team, our photographer, marketing… Absolutely everyone here is contributing something to make this the biggest and best Girlfriends Getaway yet! Even Belle, fur-child of Hot Off The Press owners Mike and Paulette Jarvey, is excited to dive into the coveted pizza box that comes packed with Girlfriends Getaway goodies! She’s a girl too, after all!
On Tuesday, Paulette gave me sneak peek at this year’s Girlfriends Getaway projects, and you are all going to be stunned! I can’t divulge all the details yet, but somehow Paulette has found a way to include everything you will need to create some extremely impressive projects that showcase some amazing new techniques. Participants will have the option to create cards OR scrapbook pages (so there’s something for everyone!) plus there is also a glass ornament and an 11″X5″ Sara’s Surfaces album. Ooooh… the album. I can’t share pictures yet, but the album cover that you’ll create is truly next-level. I’ll give away this much… Copper embossing paste!
Girlfriends Getaway 2014 has been sold out for well over a month, but fret not! As usual, the exact same kit that participants receive will also be made available for you to purchase, along with a DVD that will guide you step-by-step through all the projects. It’s the next-best thing to actually attending! Right now, you can pre-order your Girlfriends Getaway Kit and it’ll be shipped to you on October 10th. So if you didn’t sign up in time, or if distance prevented you from attending, here’s a way that you can still take part in all the creative fun!
Just look again at all the goodies that come in your kit – there are: 3 sets of 12″x12″ scrapbooking papers, a brand-new Artful Card Kit, a ton of different Dazzles™, gold leafing, tags, ribbons & cording, a glass ornament, a 5″x11″ Sara’s Surfaces album, Liquid Pearls™, Stickles™ Glitter Glue PLUS there’s even stuff that we didn’t show in the photo, including copper embossing paste, blue glitter embossing powder, a 6″x6″ stencil and a Design Tool Kit! You’ll also receive 3 different pre-embossed specialty papers (acetate, holographic and kraft cardstock) that will make it easy to try out a new technique (or two or more)! Each of the 3 embossed pieces will have its own special technique. Sorry – the rest is classified! Remember, you will also have Paulette’s DVD guiding you through all these new techniques! And I’m not kidding here. There’s even more stuff included in your kit – too much to list!
We have saved our very best projects for this once-a-year event, so you won’t want to miss out on getting your Girlfriend’s Getaway Kit! Saturday is going to be a blast and I will be sharing the pictures soon! Have a great weekend, and I hope you all have a chance to create something new and exciting!
