Default BIG VSN ANNOUNCEMENT

In the past few days we have asked you to share your thoughts and concerns regarding Virtual Stamping Night. Many of you expressed your feelings about what works and what doesn’t work. Some of you also made suggestions about how the experience might be improved. We want you to know that WE HEARD YOU!

It is our goal to make VSN a fun and exciting experience. We hope that you will also learn and grow as stampers, and make new friends in the process. And while we recognize that VSN may not be for everyone, we are committed to making it work for as many of you as possible.

With your valuable feedback in mind, we will be offering some new and exciting VSN opportunities over the next few months. We hope you will enjoy the **TWISTS** and **SURPRISES** that we have come up with. If you have never participated in VSN before, we urge you to give it a try. If you are a veteran VSNer, please join us again!!


The next VSN Weekend will be held on:



January 18th and 19th, 2008




In order to bridge the very long gap and keep those creative juices flowing, we’ve also decided to hold several Mini VSNs before then. Each Mini VSN will consist of 4 challenges, which will be posted simultaneously. The 45-minute time limit will be waived during Mini VSNs, and you will have two weeks to upload your creations.



Mini VSN Kickoff Dates:

Friday, October 19th, 7 PM EST
Saturday, November 10th, 7 PM EST
Wednesday, December 5th, 7 PM EST



And now, finally, the moment you have been waiting for has arrived.


The theme for the next VSN will be… (drum roll, please)...



GIRL’S NIGHT OUT!

So mark your calendars, hire your babysitters, and buy your chocolate. You won't want to miss out on the next VSN!!

At first I was bummed that it wasn't until Jan. That's a long time to wait. But I do love the idea of the mini VSN's. And I like the theme.

Julie--I guess your kids will just have to wait a very long time for you to be gone on another sleepover

I know, we felt that way, too. But it would be really hard to do it sooner because of the holidays. People have a hard enough time carving out the time to play at other times of the year. I hope that the Mini VSNs will help make the wait seem shorter!

Well, with VSBN being in early Nov, and the holidays coming up, we just couldn't come up with a sooner time that would fit. The minis should help pass the time, appeal to those that don't like the 45 min time crunch, and be a ton of fun!!

Okay, so I'm a little confused...(big surprise huh?)

If you do VSN in January the way we did it last time you'll need 18 hostesses.

With four mini VSN's ran kinda in the dirty girl style you'll need 12 hostesses.

So when the call comes out for hostesses, will you be asking for 32?

Twelve to be able to do the mini's and eighteen to do the full one?
