Remember, there are many reasons to take advantage of this awesome opportunity! When you purchase kit, there are NO STRINGS ATTACHED. And also, Stampin' Up! needs all kinds of Demonstrators! What kind would you consider being?

» FRIENDS & FAMILY DEMONSTRATOR: You just want to buy all your stamping and scrapbooking supplies at a great discount and help your "friends & family" get their supplies too! Also want access to great "demonstrator only" websites and monthly idea magazine–always tons of ideas at your fingertips! No pressure to sell to others, attend events, or communicate with anyone – you just simply order when you want to.

» GIVE IT A TRY DEMONSTRATOR: You join Stampin' Up! to see what it is all about – with no long-term commitment or plan. You purchase the kit (which is a great deal all by itself,) have a couple of workshops or classes, just to see if you might like it. If you find it's not for you–you can become a "discount purchaser" or just say "good bye!"

» HOBBY DEMONSTRATOR: You like the idea if doing workshops and earning extra money, but only when it’s convenient for you. You might work a lot some months and very little, or not at all, during other months. You love to stamp and/or scrapbook and like to support your own “hobby" so that you can buy everything that you want with the money you earn!

» PART TIME DEMONSTRATOR: You see the potential to do a little work and earn a little money on a consistent basis. You want no pressure to ever do more than you want, but you want help and support from a "upline" who truly cares about you and your goals. You may have specific goals in mind–pay for preschool, college tuition, car payment, new furniture, etc…

» CAREER DEMONSTRATOR: You recognize the potential of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and want to build a business with long-term career goals. You want to pursue management and want to move up the career ladder. You love attending Stampin’ Up! events and building relationships with other demonstrators and customers. You intend to work at your business in a consistent and outgoing manner.

Decorative Frame

Hi everyone! I'm back with a project today. This was inspired from a project in the brand new IB&C on page 173. It's a decorated frame! It's so cute and definitely fun to make! I started by cutting a 4x6 piece of First Edition DSP. I crinkled that and sponged with Crumb Cake ink. Next, I ran a piece of black vinyl through the Big Shot using the Top Note Die; I only used a piece of the die. I then punched out a bunch of punches (scallops, blossoms) using DSP from the Brights Collection and cardstock. The colors I used are Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive...what a great combo--I found it using the color coach (a fantastic tool that you'll definitely want!!). Then, I put the punches together in a random order. Some of them are by themselves. I added some brads and buttons and rhinestones. There is just so much cool stuff on this one project! Everything was adhered to the class using glue dots--the newsprint DSP is under the glass. I hope you like this project. I had a blast making it! If you'd like to make one yourself, let me know! I might put a class together for this! Come back soon and thanks for looking!

Open House Specials

Hi everyone! Since the Open House was cancelled (I wish more of you might have been able to come!), I decided to offer specials. The specials will be valid from today (7/10) through Wednesday (7/13). You can purchase any of the In Color items on page 176 for 10% off. These items must be purchased directly through me....not online orders. I accept cash, check, or credit card.

Also, is anyone interested in attending classes? I'm thinking of offering a Halloween class in September sometime. There will probably be a few projects and cards; I'm not sure exactly right now. The fee will probably be around $15 or so. This will have to be paid before the class to pay for materials. More information will follow!
