Pick a Free Project Kit - New Recruits

Ever considered joining up with Stampin' Up!, even if it's just for a great new offer?  Well, through August 31, 2013, Stampin' Up! is offering a doozy for all it's new recruits.  Join by 8/31/13, and you will get to choose 1 kit from 4 different project kits to add on to your regular starter kit ($99.00) for NO extra charge!  That's a kit full of product worth up to $29.90 for free!

See the details:

Kit Options:
The first three project kits are from the holiday catalog and the last option is from the annual catalog.

Not sure what it would take to be a Demonstrator?  It's actually MUCH easier than you think, and there's no cancellation fees or hassle if you decide you don't want to quit.  For the join fee of $99, you actually get over $190 worth of product.  Add the $29.90 of one of the most expensive kits you receive for free by joining this month, and that's $219.90 worth of product for joining - for only the starter kit price of $99.00.  That's awesome!  And even if you decide staying a demonstrator isn't for you - you can still remain a Demonstrator for 3 months with no restrictions, and then another 3 months at a pending status.  (Still no extra fees imposed on you.)  During those 6 months, you still get all the great access to the Demonstrator website, with all of it's ideas, help, promotions, etc., as well as access to Stampin' Up!'s EXCLUSIVE demonstrator-only social website - which is chock-full of pictures, videos, and forums to discuss anything Stampin' Up! with fellow demonstrators.  After 6 months access to all that - I can't see you WANTING to drop or cancel your demonstratorship, but again, there's absolutely no fees against you if you decide to go through with it.  :) 

Here's a little something I wrote several blog entries back about deciding what type of demo you might like to be:

Hobby Demonstrators - You enjoy the rewards that Stampin' Up! offers as a demo, but you don't plan to make Stampin' Up your full-time job. You earn extra money at your convenience.

Discount Demonstrator - You like the fact that you can receive a 20% discount (or more) as a demonstrator - and that's all you're in it for.

Seasonal Demonstrator - You work hard to achieve certain goals or raise certain amounts of money during the year, so you can maintain your demo status year-round.

Career Demonstrator - You manage your demonstratorship as your job. You're in it for keeps, and to earn money.

I hope you'll give the thought of being a new demonstrator a thought!  Please contact me for more information, or to join, today!

Thanks and Happy Stamping!

New Color Markers

You might have had the new 2013-2014 Idea Book & Catalog (IBC) in your hot little hands for a little over 2 months now, and noticed that Stampin' Up! did a little bit of color renovating for this year.  Several new colors added to the catalog were previous In Colors, with a couple BRAND NEW colors thrown in too.  Now I bet if you're anything like me, you want to update your Many Marvelous Markers kit to include all the new colors.  Stampin' Up! is giving us some options on how to do that before 10/31/13. 

You can, of course, purchase the whole kit and caboodle of the Many Marvelous Markers (all 38 colors in the main color collections) again.  (p.163 - #131264 - $109.95)  Or, you can purchase them by color collection families (p.143-149 - #131259, 131261, 131263, 131262 - $28.95 each - except neutrals for 22.95).  These are good options if you don't yet own the markers, or you're just getting started into the marvelous world that is Stampin' Up!.  Both of these options are going to be available the entire length of the current catalog (until May 31, 2014). 

Stampin' Up! is doing something great for us through the 10/31/13 deadline though.  Purchase either a complete set of JUST the newly added markers this year, or, buy the markers you want individually - say, if you already have all the previous in color markers.

Here are the item numbers, prices, and descriptions.  Contact me to order today.

My Paper Pumpkin Promotion

My Paper Pumpkin is a new product offer from Stampin' Up!.  It's awesome in the fact that you get everything you need to make cards or other special projects, mailed directly to your door, for $19.95/month (including shipping).  When you first join Paper Pumpkin, you receive a clear block stamp base for free, that you need to keep for use in the upcoming months.  Then, just have your favorite adhesives on hand, and you will have everything you need to make that month's project.  No surfing of the catalog needed.  Just one complete project kit a month.  Great for those crafty people that are limited on time, can't make it out of the house to attend a class, or want instructions to follow each month.

So far, each of the kits I've received since Paper Pumpkin started, comes with a new stamp or stamps, and small ink spot in different colors to use on that month's project.  They've mailed cards, the makings for a small scrapbook, and even the pieces for a mini banner.  Everything is of Stampin' Up!'s highest quality, and is super-cute to boot.

What's even better about Paper Pumpkin right now?  Join by August 31, 2013, and you can get your first two months for only $10.00 plus tax (shipping is already included in the price).  That's almost a 50% savings for the 1st two months!  Can I say that's just AWESOME!!  (Don't forget you'll need to use promocode: PUMPKINDEAL to get that special price.)

Here are some details that Stampin' Up! would like you to know about Paper Pumpkin:

  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, d├ęcor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you and your customer a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10, we'll send your kit around May 15. If you sign up on May 11, we'll send your first kit around the June 15.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!) The commissionable amount is $14.95 for each Paper Pumpkin.  There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.

Paper Share from the New Holiday Catalog

I'm going to offer something that I've never done before, a Paper Share.  Hopefully by now, you've managed to look at the new Holiday mini catalog, which is available to order from until January 2, 2014.  Have you seen the fabulous Designer Series Paper (DSP) that the Holiday mini has to offer?  I am absolutely in LOVE with the Winter Frost Specialty DSP listed on pg. 29.  (#132341)

Maybe you're wondering how you could actually use so much paper.  Or maybe you would love to own all 4 new DSP packs, but it's a little out of your budget.  Well, that's where the paper share is going to come in handy.

What happens is, 4 people agree to share the 4 Designer Series packs of paper from the Holiday mini.  What you'll end up receiving, for your share at a cost of $13.00, is 48 different patterned papers that are 6x6" in size. 

The 6x6" size go a long way to making a bunch of cards!  Are you thinking of using the paper for scrapbooking a larger album (say a 12x12")?  Buy two shares at $26.00, and you'll receive 48 patterned papers that are 6x12", so you can use it on projects needing longer spans of paper.

The designer series papers we will use in the share are listed below:

  • Sweater Weather (#132184 - pg. 18)
Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper
  • Witches' Brew (#132185 - pg. 21) - Not a fan of Halloween? (one side of each paper design is just in fall colors, so we have you covered)
Witches' Brew Designer Series Paper
  • Season of Style (#132340 - pg. 23)
Season Of Style Designer Series Paper
  • Winter Frost (#132341 - pg. 29) 2 of the sheets are single-sided, foil accented
Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper
The order for the paper will be placed 8/18/13.  If I don't hear from enough people, I will have to cancel the share.  Please let me know if you are interested, as soon as possible!

Thank you & Happy Stamping!
