Stamper's Club Starting soon!

My clubs will be once again starting shortly. Sign up soon to reserve your spot. The catalogues are in so if you come by, sign up then you can HAVE the new catalogue in your hot little hands immediately. I will not have time in the next few weeks for a catalog reveal, so please email me to sign up.

Here are some questions I've had about clubs over the years I've been offering them.

  • What is a Club? Each month the same club members get together in my studio to learn new techniques, make projects and have fun. The club runs for seven consecutive months and each member commits to spending a minimum of $30 per month (before shipping/taxes) from choices in the catalogue(s). You make the projects for FREE each month.

  • What are the benefits? You get a turn at being the hostess once in the seven month cycle and earn free hostess only benefits and stamp sets!

  • What if I can't make it to club? No problem - Your project will be completed for you if you are unable to come - you just send me your order by email or phone to fulfil your monthly minimum obligation to other members. (payment by credit card is accepted)

  • Can I bring a friend? You may bring a friend to the club, however, I need 1 day notice for preplanning the projects. If your friend makes a purchase, there is no charge. If they just want to join us to stamp, there is a $5 supply fee. You may also hostess a separate workshop outside of club and/or obtain outside orders to add to your workshop sales total and increase your benefits!

  • Any other perks for joining a club? Each member receives a complimentary copy of the Fall-Winter Idea Book & Catalogue. A relaxed fun atmosphere where fun is the number one goal. It's perfect for those of you who say "I'd love to have a workshop and earn free benefits BUT I don't know anyone who stamps" In a club you don't need to know anyone - I find the guests for you and you don't have to clean your house either!

All members will be creating cards or 3d items this year. On occasion I may incorporate some scrapbooking but there will always be a card option for those who do not scrapbook. See you all soon!

Mind Boggling

So many Specials for you all in the coming months. So many that I'm beginning to lose count which is what has my mind boggled. There's something for everyone - demonstrators, customers, hostesses and new demonstrators!

In the next few weeks, if you are on my mailing list, you will receive a Catalogue Sampler brochure for the new catalogue. I know you'll have the whole catalogue in your hot little hands by then so what's the point of the Sampler you might ask. (that is, if you are a customer and have ordered one - if not check in with me to see if I have extras!)

  • from October 1 - November 30 a hostess with an workshop of $460 or more can pick any item from this Sampler for FREE in addition to her regular hostess benefits.
  • there's more...from August 11 - October 11 new demonstrators who sign up with the current Starter Kit will receive any stamp set from the new catalogue for FREE. This kit is $249 plus GST and includes everything you need to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

  • there's even more...from August 11 - October 11 new demonstrators can opt to purchase a Mini Starter Kit for $119...yes breathe...$119 plus GST - it includes all the business supplies included in the Standard Starter Kit but has less products which is perfect for customers because they have a lot of the items included in the kit already! You can choose from a Stamper's Kit, a Scrapbooker's Kit or a Home Decor kit... AND some of the products can be substituted for items of equal or lesser value to suit your own tastes. Click here to see the Flyer.

Decor Elements Kit

*Each kit also includes the same business supplies that are found in the standard Starter Kit (the Home Décor-Focused Starter Kit also includes 25 Décor Elements brochures). While all items in the Starter Kits are recommended, a new demonstrator may substitute a like item of equal or lesser value.

Contact me about finding out how you can sign up on my Demonstrator Business Website and have access to your Demo ID# and to the Stampin' Up! website within minutes!

New Die Cut from Stampin' Up!

I was surfin' this aft and found an awesome photo of one of the dies that are shown in the Sales Brochure for the Big Shot. It is a decorative strip. Can you tell I am excited?
Need to look at the brochure? click here

OH My... Stampin' Up and Sizzix Partnered!

Sizzix? you are wondering what is this? It is a personal Die Cut machine. A few years ago, Sizzix was all the rage. Since then, many other machines have come onto the market. I am sooooo excited!. For all of you who waited on buying the "ahem" cuttle mug...(sp I know) this is EVEN better!

  • larger area, able to handle larger paper

  • all dies and folders are compatible (different company's)
  • create project for both scrapbooking and cardmaking

The Big Shot works with ALL competitive dies, and the steel rule dies can cut through an impressive list of 50 different materials, including fabric, foil, and chipboard.
It's important to note that there are different types of dies.

  • Originals, Bigz, and Bigz XL dies. These steel ruled dies cut through virtually any material and multiple sheets of card stock and Designer Series paper.

  • Sizzlets dies. These dies are small and detailed, often creating scored or perforated details. These dies cut through thin materials, and multiple sheets are not recommended.

To see this exciting tool and accessories, download the flyer here.

Big Shot instruction sheet is available here. Looks pretty easy to me!

Decor Element Sample

Just thought I would share with you where I put my first Decor Elements. I wanted to put this in my stamping room but really, if you have seen my room, there is no place on the walls to put it. I figured above the door is a good spot, perfect size and I look straight at it when I am busy "creating"

My boys decided I needed a letter "C" to put in front so I have ordered and received it, just haven't put it up yet. If you come by my stamp room, be sure to have a peek at it for real.

Oh, and these are super easy to apply. I did have some difficulty with the "dots" however, I have since received some tips and if you plan to get these, I will share them with you. :)
Stampin' Up! has also created both an instruction sheet and a video for applying these.
