My Stampin’ Up! Anniversary

It’s hard to believe 14 years ago I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  As many demonstrators can relate, I “only signed up for the discount” was my feeling at the time.  I had no intention of doing parties or teaching others; I just wanted to get my crafting goodies cheap!

Well, here I am 14 years later, and my classes are busier than ever!  I love what I do, and I truly cherish the women I have welcomed into my home and crafting circle.

I started my anniversary celebrations earlier this month – I’m hosting an event in my home plus offering an item for 14% off each week.  I’ve offered some giveaways on my Facebook page already.  Here’s one for readers of my blog:

You will receive this Paper Pumpkin Kit – Party Pennants!  It includes 3 background stamps, 2 inkspots (Summer Starfruit and Pool Party), and all the items to make a cute little banner!  You can use the banner to decorate your hearth, a cake, or take parts of it and use it on cards or scrapbook pages!

Leave a comment on my blog and tell me what you will be celebrating in the coming months!  I’ll pick a random winner on Wednesday evening!

I can't seem to get the new Snow Much Fun stamp set off my stamping table.  I don't think my customers are too surprised about that!  I've created a fabulous moving card using the slider card technique.

  4. Color in images with markers.
  5. Highlight snowman, ground, and snowball with Dazzling Diamonds glitter and 2-Way Glue.

  8. Mount all pieces keeping the inside piece separate from the base.
  9. Make a center mark on base Whisper White piece – punch large hole through all the base layers with Crop-A-Dile.

Love Birds Simply Scrappin’ 20-Card Kit and Tutorial Special

I have created a 20-card kit with all the card-making materials including embellishments and envelopes and a 12-page tutorial with colored photos for $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping. As a bonus, you will also receive two additional card formats which you can also use with the materials in your kit. I've got only 3 kits left – for those who purchase these final three kits, I'll include a few of the premade cards with your kit!!!!

What is included in the kit?

  • Whisper White CS for Card Bases
  • Whisper White Envelopes
  • PreCut Textured CS
  • Precut CS for Layers/Punching
  • PreCut DSP
  • 1 Sheet Each of Three Different Self-Adhesive Die Cut Sheets
  • Brads/Ribbon
  • 1 Sheet of Stampin' Dimensionals

The 12-page tutorial will be emailed to both local and online customers.

There will be a few supplies you will need to create the cards:

  • Trimmer (104152)
  • Bone Folder (102300)
  • Snail Adhesive (104332)
  • Piercing Tool/Mat (116631/105826)

I can only sell the complete kits to U.S. customers. However, I can sell the tutorial to anyone!

Demonstrators – this kit is perfect for a Stamp-A-Stack!! I purposely created all-occasion cards that were easy enough for the beginner, but special enough to please your toughest customer! I will be happy to sell the tutorial to interested demonstrators for only $7.00. For a limited time, I'll be offering the emailed tutorial for only $5.00!!! 

The 20 cards I created use most of the self-adhesive die cuts included in the kit – but there will be some cut card stock and Designer Series Paper left over to use on other projects. You can even make the kit go further if you stamp or punch other items to accent the cards.

Why do I create card kits? I LOVE having my customers come to my home for stamp camps and events, but I know there are several stampers out there who just can't make it to my events. This is an easy way for them to keep their creative juices flowing and their card stash filled. These card kits are also great for my stampers who love to create cards, but don't always enjoy planning out and cutting out their cards.

Love Bug Scrapbook Kit

I'm so excited to share this kit!  My Stamper's 10 group made this project last month, and it was a huge hit!  I am also making one for my adorable niece, Katie, who I always call Katie Bug!

Lovebug Scrapbook Front

 

Lovebug Scrapbook Back

This scrapbook would be great for a special gift – just add photos and you are all set! 

I have had many of my customers ask for a kit and some preferred for me to make it.  So I am happy to offer both options!  

Completed Scrapbook

The completed scrapbook can be personalized.  For instance, if you want a name on the front cover instead of "Love", I'll be happy to include a name with up to 6 letters on the front.  If you want it personalized, please include the name you'd like on the cover with your payment. 

There are 5 inside blank pages included (red and black).  I will include some sparkly hearts in various sizes for accents on your finished pages.

I can ship completed scrapbooks within 3 days of payment.

Scrapbook Kit

The scrapbook kit comes with all the materials you need to create the project. 

All punched items will be punched, but not adhered to anything.

You will receive instructions via email with color pictures after payment has been made and kit has been shipped.

The scrapbook kit can also be personalized; however, the pieces will not be adhered to anything.

There are 5 blank inside pages included (red and black). I will include some sparkly hearts in various sizes for accents on your finished pages.

I can ship the kits out within 2 days of payment.

Scrapbook Tutorial

The scrapbook tutorial will be sent as an attachment via email within 1 day of payment.  The tutorial has full-color pictures, a supply list, and step-by-step instructions.

You may not resell the tutorial to any downline, demo groups, or customers. 

If you are local to West Bend, Wisconsin, you may choose the local pickup option.  The kits can only be shipped to addresses in the United States.
