The best time to join my team...BUT HURRY...

This fantastic offer ends on 31st August so HURRY!

Who?  Anyone with passion for excellent quality craft supplies.
How? Easy! click the link to 'join my team' and follow the instructions.
What?  Read on...

This offer is not just fantastic value for money:

You get to pick £155 worth of products for only £99 and these can be from either the Annual Catalogue, the beginner brochure or - even though it hasn't launched to the public yet -, the fabulous Christmas seasonal catalogue (you'll need to contact me for an exclusive link to a PDF version). 
Not only that but you will get an £8 coupon to spend next month.
Not only that but you will be able to see the Spring/Summer seasonal catalogue in November before it goes live to the public and will get exclusive access to order from it early!

A word about the word Demonstrator - I often hear "I don't want to run classes or demonstrate in public".  Think about the word member instead, does that sound more acceptable?  I thought so!  So, by joining Stampin' Up! you don't actually need to demonstrate anything, you will be classed as an active member so long as you make minimum quarterly 'sales' and these sales can be your own purchases.  Each of these sales/purchases are at a discount so you can get all the fabulous products that you love from Stampin' Up! at a discount for your own hobby.   You love Stampin' Up! products so it's easy to make these purchases. You could sell to friends too and they could become your customers.. no demonstration necessary, just share what you love with your crafty friends.

What if you don't make the quarterly sales?  You do get an opportunity to go for it for a little bit longer than your first quarter - what we call 'pending' (pending leaving) or you just leave.  There are no phone calls, no angry or pressurised emails persuading you to get your finger out!

So, let's re-cap:

  • Pay £99 - get £155 worth of goodies - that's a 'no brainer'.
  • Join now and get until December to make purchases/sales at a discount (your first quarter will start October)
  • Get to choose your 'starter kit' from Annual Catalogue or Christmas Catalogue (not available to public until September).
  • Get a coupon to spend in September worth £8.
  • Get to see the Spring / Summer catalogue in November and order products at a discount before it launches to the public.

Oh, and you also get access to Stampin' Up! news and offers exclusively while you are a member and .... you could be attending the most fantastic event in the Stampin' Up! calendar... On Stage live  which is in Germany in November.

Some AMAZING seasonal news!

 Hi, I'm here with my monthly Stampin' news... and I have lots to share :-)

First up, the Stampin' Up! seasonal catalogue is just around the corner!!  Yay, all things good and merry to take you through the autumn and winter months.  As a customer you can order your Christmas craft goodies from me from the beginning of September - HOWEVER - if you are a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator you are able to order right now.. I've just put through my advance order and can't wait for it to get here.   I'll be running a crafty event early September but more of that later.

What's that I hear?  You love Christmas crafting and want to see the stuff before it's launched?  I can make that happen... read on....

How about if I told you all about that ^ ^ ^ awesome offer?  Let me break it down for you:

Join my team before 31st August by paying £99 for your 'starter kit' and get £155 worth of products plus a coupon for £8 to spend in September.

What is in the kit?  Anything you want at all from either the Annual Catalogue or the NEW Seasonal (Christmas) catalogue which hasn't even launched yet!!

Where's the catch?  There isn't one, you DO NOT have to 'demonstrate' - i.e. stand in front of people and sell or show them how to craft.  You DO get a further discount on all further products that you order.  Let me be clear, there is no obligation to order products for other people, your future orders can be just for you - who doesn't want to get the best quality craft products at a discount?

How? Glad you asked that, it's so simple.. just click the picture above and it will take you to my online website.

Still got questions?  Please don't hesitate to contact me - all my details are here on this blog and I'm always happy to chat through your questions.

So, whether you want an additional income by earning excellent commissions by sharing your own love of paper crafting - Being an active Demonstrator running your own events - or whether you want to get discounts on your own hobby products - Being a 'hobby' Demonstrator, it's all possible.  I am here as your Team Leader to ensure that you get a fit that's right for you.

Let's get together and celebrate you joining my team soon.

In Other News:

Extra event in the Retford area - Sunday 8th September 
I'm going to be running a Christmas Card 'stamp-a-stack' session.

Starting at 10am and finishing at about 3pm this session will give you a head start on those Christmas cards.  So, whether you want to stash them ready for your own use or get a bunch made ready for Christmas Fair sales this session will be just the ticket.

You will make 20 cards (not necessarily the designs shown here).

Session price is £20 per person and will include all materials and tuition.  It is a 'bring your own lunch' event but I will provide tea/coffee etc.

Venue to be confirmed.

Feeling a bit 'Grinch'?  Keep calm and get out your broomstick.... There is a lot of spooky shenanigans in the new Seasonal Catalogue coming your way too!  Don't miss out and reserve your copy ahead of the launch - just drop me a message with your name and address and I'll make sure that you get one.

busy Bawtry class
After a busy, but fun, week last week when I ran three card making classes and hosted a catalogue preview day, I felt in the need of some well earned time to get inky myself!

So, I packed the car with a whole load of fabulous Stampin' Up! goodies - which also happened to include 3 of my fellow Demonstrator 'besties' - and we headed North.  We spent the day with Nicola (one of my downline team) in her creative workshop and we laughed, ate, drank (tea and coffee) and laughed a whole lot more...
... In fact I think I might have laughed so much a little tear ran down my leg...!

We made some cards and tried a couple of techniques too.  We shared a whole lot of ideas for our Stampin' Up! businesses and generally got VERY excited about all the fabulous stuff in our NEW Annual Catalogue which launches on 4th June.

The journey home was too funny, firstly after a short while I realised that the last time I used my SatNav the settings were changed to 'shortest route'. Well, as Nicola lives in a rural location shall we just say that the shortest route was 'scenic' and comprised of very narrow lanes and glorious views.  Next we spotted a signpost to a place called 'Land of Nod' - I kid you not!  So, we thought we would have a short diversion and visit the Land of Nod, it would have been rude not to.  After turning off the main road, we stopped a local to ascertain that we were going the right way - can you imaging asking a stranger "Are we going the right way to the Land of Nod?"!!!!! (Well done Alison).  Anyway, we drove 2 miles in a straight line down another very narrow lane to arrive at .... a farm - yes, a very sleepy looking farm, but no village or hamlet with a place name of Land of Nod.  We did laugh a lot though.  We also questioned whether it might be the new Christmas Seasonal Catalogue that might be launching next as we were passed by a lorry with a load of Christmas trees and we saw a massive sign for fresh turkeys!! I swear we only drank tea the whole day.

Anyway, what this wonderful day reinforced in me was that being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is all about Sharing what we love while we Create, not just projects but fun memories too.

Thank you to my Stampin' Besties for another instalment in our brilliant journey as Demonstrators - we may not be an official team but we'll always be Shizzer Sisters!
