Fresh Ideas for Hostess and Customer Monthly Incentives—December

Some great (and inspiring) ideas for this December Hostess and Customer monthly incentives. 

This charming display was inspired by the beautiful colors found in a French Country kitchen. When painting any of UL’s melamine foundations, remember to use a spray paint formulated for plastic and give it enough time to dry and fully cure before applying the expression.
•     “No place like home” Two- Part expression (17855): part 1, Honey Wheat (9003); part 2, Bright White (9010)
•    Scalloped Charger (300112)
•    Decorative Easel (300114)
•    Red spray paint

Simple, yet functional is what makes this message board a great addition to any home. Use it to post a daily inspirational message for yourself or your family. It’s a constant reminder that love really does live here.

•     “Love lives here” expression (17856): Herb Garden (9064)
•    Frameworks Double Frame—Black (300217)
•    Frameworks Frame—Rectangle Galvanized Steel Insert (300200)
Think outside the box with this delightful “Hugs & Kisses” banner. Don’t be afraid to cut apart expressions and use them in creative ways. Each letter was applied to a coordinating decorative paper and then cut out before being applied to chipboard covered in a different decorative paper.
•     “Kisses xoxoxo hugs” two-part expression (17854): part 1, Whipped Crème (9005); part 2, Shoreline Blue (9054)
•    MyDesign text “&”, Garamond: 3”, Fresh Linen (9082)
•    Chipboard (2 packs) (300106)
•    Gems (300104)
•    Mini Blooms—White (300191)
•    Blooms—Chocolate (300103)
•    Toolbox Paint—Hot Cocoa (300147)
•    Decorative paper—11 varieties
•    Ribbon—brown, cream, red, white flowers
•    Buttons—brown, green
•    Felt flowers

Create a playful welcome for any season with this versatile expression. As pictured, the welcome becomes a wintry wonderland in Robin’s Egg on the navy board. You can also turn it into a spring or summer welcome by using Wild Raspberry on the crème board. Want a fall look? Try Pumpkin Spice on the cocoa board. For a little additional bling, add little rhinestones to the dots on each letter.

•     “Welcome” expression (17858): Robin’s Egg (9058)
•    Vintage Embossed Metal Board—Navy (300195)
•    Vinyl Effects—Shimmer (300226)
•    Rhinestones

This sweet sentiment is perfect in the traditional colors of love: red and pink. Instead of using vinyl effects on the letters, we used it to fill in the hearts, creating a fun, unexpected display.

•     “Hugs, kisses & Valentine wishes ” expression (17857): Berry Red (9030)
•    MDF Board—Rectangle (300107)
•    Vinyl Effects—Shimmer (300226)
•    Pink spray paint
