Join Stampin’ Up! for £25

Have you ever wondered if being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is for you? Well, now is the perfect time to find out…

Until 21st October, you can sign up as a demonstrator for only £25 you and take Stampin’ Up! on a test drive!

For £25 you get to choose £26.95 worth of product from any current catalogues (MDS included), then Stampin Up! add a business pack containing catalogues and everything else you need to get your business up and running and it is posted to you with no shipping to pay. You get access to the Stampin’ Up! website and a whole lot of resources to help you on your way.

As a demonstrator, you earn 20% commission on your sales – that could be 20% discount on your own craft goodies. Demonstrators always hear of special offers and new products before customers. You also get to go to Stampin’ Up! regional events and training. Booking for Convention (November in Manchester) closes on 10th October, so you could even manage to join the main Stampin’ Up! event of the year if you’re quick!

To remain a demonstrator, you need to sell (or buy) £270 of product (catalogue price) per quarter. Now, if you sign up with this offer your first quarter doesn’t end until the end of MARCH 2014. That also means you will get sneak peaks of the Spring/Summer catalogue and be able to order new products before customers. You will also get an extra 10% commission on your first order over £150 within 45 days of signing up. AND that order could also benefit from the current Party More, Get More offer of an extra £25 of hostess credit once your order hits £250. This deal keeps getting better and better…

You don’t have to do workshops or classes – I know I started off buying a lot of product for myself! If you don’t reach your sales target by the end of March then there is no penalty whatsoever for stopping being a demonstrator.

If you choose to become part of my team of demonstrators, I can promise you as much one-to-one support as you need, as well as dedicated team resources and training events. You will also benefit from special team incentives, rewards and recognitions. I will work with you to help you gain as much from Stampin’ Up! as you want.

I will also add an extra special free gift when you sign up in my team. You can choose one of the following business resources free:

  • Designer series paper sampler
  • Samples of all the ribbon in the annual catalogue
  • Free retired Sale-a-Bration stamp set to use as an incentive in your business
  • Free custom blog design and set-up (see some of my blog designs here, here and here)

There are limited numbers of each of these available, so don’t delay and email me to join Stampin’ Up! today.

The standard starter kit deal (£99 for £130 worth of product and free business resources and shipping) is not available during the next two weeks. You may wonder which is the better deal for you. Do get in touch and we can go through the numbers. You would still be able to choose one of my free business resources when you do sign up!

World Cardmaking Day 2013

 

It's World Cardmaking Day! If you're like me and often need a reason to clear your busy schedule to craft, then Stampin' Up! are adding an extra incentive to celebrate today by crafting…

This is what you have to do:

Use Stampin' Up! product to make a card TODAY. Either email a photo of a card, or of you making a card, to wcmd2013@stampinup.com, or post a photo of a card, or of you making a card, on Instagram (mention Stampin' Up! by typing @stampinup and use the hashtag #wcmd2013 in the description).

50 winners from our South Pacific and European markets will be randomly selected and will receive the Naughty and Nice Rotary Stamp and Season of Style Designer Washi Tape (valued at 12,90 €/ £10).

A selection of pictures will be posted to Stampin’ Up!’s World Cardmaking Day Pinterest Board as well, so keep an eye on that for extra inspiration to keep you crafting.

This contest is open to EVERYONE, but there is some small print:

You must be over the age of 18 to win a prize. You can enter as many times as you wish, but each entry must feature a different card. Contest will last all day on 5 October, from 12:01 AM to 12:00 PM.

Right – I'm off to craft. Might have to clear up my craft space a bit first though….!

Pinkies Autumm/Winter Blog Hop

Thank
you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of
gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn/Winter
Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep
hopping!

 

If you’re following our Blog Hop through, you should have joined me from Sandie’s blog. I think I’m definitely going to have to try out a wreath with the Festive Flurry bundle.

I’ve found it quite difficult to get into the Christmas spirit as far as crafting goes. We’ve not even been back at school for two weeks, and some of my students are already counting down to the Christmas holiday. I know I’ve got a lot to do between now and then, so would prefer time to slow down a teeny bit for me!

Here’s my first Christmas card design of the year…

 

Wishing you

I chose to use the Wishing You stamp set. What I really like about this year’s Autumn/Winter Seasonal catalogue are the numbers of small stamp sets and kits. You really don’t have to spend out much to be able to make all your own Christmas cards. The set includes a sentiment, so you have a complete card with just one stamp set! Add that to the Season of Style Designer Series Paper stack, which has 24 each of two double-sided designs and the cards almost make themselves.
I always love Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive as a classic Christmas colour combination, but I know I’m going to be trying to get my new favourite Soft Sky into some of my Christmas crafting as well somehow!

I do hope you keep on hopping as there is more inspiration on show than ever before. Next stop is Suzette!

Quick Card Using Flower Shop

The card I have to share with you today was made at our most recent quarterly team training, which was the weekend before my trip to the USA.

Some crafting is always planned for the day, but I have to admit that I usually spend the time gossiping and rarely make the project planned! Michelle wanted to try something different this time, so she challenged us to come up with a card using limited supplies within 45 minutes… All I can say is that the time limit was both very motivating and rather scary!

Flower shop

It's a very simple card, but was completed rather quickly so still left me with time to chat. Some of the other cards completed in the same time were amazing, and as I have photos I am sure to CASE them in upcoming weeks.
