This is an easy way to start your own business for some extra cash for you and your family or whatever your needs are – not to mention your own pleasure! 

Right now through June 30, 2014, Stampin’ Up! has a special offer for you. For the next month, new recruits that join Stampin’ Up! can do so at the traditional Starter Kit priced at $99 ($125 product value), or for a limited time, a reduced priced Starter Kit at the low price of $50 ($55 product value.) Both kits come with the business bricks which includes catalogues, order forms, and more.

Quatrefancy Hello Lovely Panel Card

Quatrefancy Hello Lovely Panel Card

Time is really getting short on retired Stampin’ Up! products, so I thought I would use some of my Quatrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Hello, Lovely Stamp SetI have to admit, I haven’t been crazy about this pack of paper, but if I looked more at each paper individually, maybe it wasn’t too bad!  On this card, I just cut some 3/4″ strips of paper from scraps in the package and staggered them a little on this card front. Although I tried to center the center strip, I got it off a little bit which made the strips too far over to the right.  Since there “are no mistakes in stamping!” I decided to fix it by covering the extra wide margin on the left with some of the Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon (my favorite ribbon for a long time!). I stamped the greeting in Island Indigo ink and layered on pieces of Strawberry Slush and Pool Party card stock. Kind of a fun design to show off the papers in the Quatrefancy pack.

So much happening at Stampin’ Up!

Retiring Stampin’ Up! products available through June 4th, while supplies last!

Giant Stamping Party at Stampin’ Up! Leadership!

It was a giant stamping party last night at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Conference!  This was after a full day of a speaker and various classes plus a most delicious dessert at lunch!

The Stampin’ Up! employees greeted us as we walked in the room! After we picked up one of our stamp sets we found a place to sit at the lovely tables decorated with little Stampin’ Up! bags with our Make & Takes and another stamp set. Some of our favorite Stampin’ Up! people did stamping demonstrations on stage.  Love that part!!  And there’s a new product coming if you don’t have the Big Shot but want to do some embossing! Not to mention the new Blendabilities alcohol markers. And there’s a new Paper Pumpkin special for signing up!

And if you are in the Houston area today, come to the George R. Brown Convention Center this afternoon to preview Stampin’ Up! and you probably get to stamp something too!  It’s from 2:00 – 7:00 and open to everybody. Dad and the kids can go see the Train Show there and Mom can go stamp!

Blurry but cute being greeted as we walked in! We love the Stampin' Up! staff!

One Extra Day to Join Stampin’ Up!

Join Stampin' Up! for $25 One Extra Day!

Stampin’ Up! is looking for a few good new Demonstrators!  The ongoing special has just been extended another 24 hours, until October 22, 2013 at 11:50 pm MT.  If you are looking for a new business opportunity, there is no less expensive way to start your own business than this:

  • During this offer, only the special $25 starter kit will be available; the regular $99  starter kit will not be available. The $25 Starter Kit includes
    • $26.95 worth of Stampin’ Up! product (it must be more than $25, but not more than $26.95 before tax)
    • Business pack which includes
      • A box of annual catalogs
      • A package of the current seasonal catalog
      • Customer Order Forms
      • Customer postcards

As you can see, it’s not the usual Starter Kit, but it enables you to start your own business and then grow your supplies. Perhaps you are already a stamper and have current Stampin’ Up! supplies so you don’t need a lot more to get your business off the ground.

Stampin’ Up! has decided to extend this original very short offer an extra day for any of you who are already working in the crafting industry with another company (and of course to anyone who is interested!).

Stampin’ Up! is even making a limited exception to their competitive activities policy: Anyone who currently is involved in a directly competitive business who signs up between October 21-November 30, 2013 will not need to resign from their former business prior to signing up with Stampin’ Up! They will have until December 1, 2013 to decide which company they will represent and by that time will need to resign from one or the other.

If you have an interest in joining Stampin’ Up! under this Starter Kit or trying out a papercrafting business different from one you might currently be engaged in, please send me an email tonight or tomorrow to and I can answer any questions you may have or we can talk tomorrow. This is an unusual offer from Stampin’ Up! and unusual for them to extend the deadline of the offer.  If you feel this offer is speaking to you, then maybe it is the right thing on which you should take action.  Besides, everyone loves being a part of Stampin’ Up!

Stampin’ Up! 2013 Convention Closes with a Bang!

All good things must come to an end, they say, and certainly the 2013 Stampin’ Up! Convention did with a bang!  Yes, real bangs!  Fireworks and confetti! Of course my camera battery died at the exact moment, but with a quick change, I was able to get a tiny video of the sparkle and glimmer!

Glitter and Confetti at end of Stampin’ Up! Convention

(Don’t know how to add a video in this new blog but hopefully this works.) (nothing great, but something!)

Today was travel day and it seemed to take all day since I was up extremely early in order to perhaps beat the other 5000 or so demos leaving today. It actually went fine, I was just SO tired and carrying my heavy SU backpack from Convention with my laptop, a one bag of swaps to look at, catalogs, snacks, etc. It’s fun having something to visibly identify you as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator because we can easily pick out other demos to chat with and also other people are wanting to know who we all are with the matching bags!  That’s a great opportunity to share with them the fun job we have as demonstrators and tell them about stamping.  My flight from Salt Lake City to Denver was really fun as I got to sit with two other very friendly demos and we just chatted the whole way about Convention and Stampin’ Up!  I felt a little sorry for the people in the row in front of us who probably wondered if we would ever be quiet! After a two-hour layover in Denver I finally made it back to Houston by 4:00.  It’s always sad to leave the last event of Convention after all the long anticipation and say goodbye to all the other demos.

We barely had any free time after things got rolling with Convention so I haven’t even looked at my swaps yet!  Can you believe that?  Downloading all my photos was extremely time-consuming (not sure if the hotel internet was slow or if I wasn’t doing something right) (or else the internet was saying ‘Are you kidding me??!  All these photos??’) so I really didn’t get to post more on my blog.  But I’ll try to catch up this week.

In a nutshell, Shelli’s daughter Sara presented on stage yesterday.  She was wonderful.  She has her mother’s personality and smile and the projects she showed were great.  They also had the anniversary marches across the stage so I got to walk across for being a demo for ten years! In the last general session Bonnie Thurber from Stampin’ Up!, always a favorite, had us laughing our heads off with her fun demonstration and comments!  In the past, sometimes she would sing at Convention but we didn’t get that treat this year.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Shelli presented the Heart of Stampin’ Up! award to a demo who I remember from when I was new to Stampin’ Up!.  That award is always a touching one and never fails to bring Shelli to tears just reading the nominations.

 We also got to see the “commercials” some demos created.  This year they were so good they had to give out a fourth place award. I thought 4th place was so good  I couldn’t imagine any others being better, but it was fun to watch all of them and what talent by these demonstrators to come up with these videos!  They each won a shopping spree!

The last group of Prize Patrol winners won EVERY stamp set in the upcoming Holiday Catalog….maybe consolation prize for being the last ones!  All of us got the Yippee-Skippee stamp set as one last party favor!

There’s so much more to tell but it’s time for bed!

Making Swaps for the Stampin’ Up! Convention

Swap card for the Stampin' Up! Convention

Now that the Stampin’ Up! Convention is less than two weeks away, it’s probably time to get serious about making swaps! Swaps are card fronts that we Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators make to trade with each other. Not only does this give us a collection of ideas to show our customers, it also gives us a way to interact with each other! It usually even starts at the airport if others can identify you as a Stampin’ Up! Demo and we start asking each other if we want to swap.  Of course everyone does, unless they are going to be finishing their swaps on the airplane ride to Salt Lake City! Swapping is one of the biggest things at any Stampin’ Up! event. It is AMAZING (to quote a phrase from the Bachelor/Bachelorette shows!) to look around at Convention in the lobby, inside the main stage area, even outside the building to see all these people swapping! You really have to see it for yourself! Even at lunch or during a break, people will have their swaps all laid out on the table and as other demos walk by they can see what swaps they have and trade if they want. I swear, Wall Street has nothing on these ladies and gents!  Everywhere there is a line people are swapping while they wait! It’s a great way to break the ice and start talking to those strangers around you!

If you would like to be part of all the Stampin’ Up! fun, find out about becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. You’ll essentially be starting your own business for just the cost of the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit. From there you can make a little extra money for yourself or your family or a lot of extra money, depending on what your goals are.

Contact me if I can answer any questions for you and provide you with more information!
