Join My Team!!!

Hi there stampers!

Just popping in here today to tell you a bit about the wonderful opportunities that Stampin' Up! offers its demonstrators.

* Oooops!, I have just reread this post and it has turned into a long one! Grab a cuppa and make yourself comfy!*

Every year, SU puts on a Regional Event in each state, this year in Perth it is being held at the Burswood Entertainment Complex. A Regional Event is an amazing day full of stamping, learning new techniques and getting together with other local demonstrators. Most of these lovely ladies spend weeks making "swaps" which is a card, or 3D item etc to swap with other demos, so that we all go home with new ideas and new examples for our customers. If you have been to a craft event where a bunch of ladies are swapping with other ladies, then you might have some idea of the level of excitement. The very first Regional I ever went to was at the Perth Convention Centre, and you could hear the laughter and excited chatter as soon as you walked in the main doors - it was amazing! Demonstrators are usually allowed to take guests, so that they get to see the newest products, techniques and ideas way before anyone else, just like a demonstrator. A lot of these guests join as soon as they get home from this uplifting day, and now with technology being what it is, you can join on the spot, via your phone, computer, ipad etc!! I will be taking a couple of guests with me this year, and if you would like to come with me, just let me know, and I will register your interest! You get to do at least 4 make and takes, local demonstrators will be onstage at times to show you 'wows!' with product you may already own, you get to see and photograph amazing samples, there are big screens so you don't miss a thing, and the provided lunch is always fantastic! There won't be any boring business stuff, as it is a day to just have fun! All levels are welcome, from beginner to the serious papercrafter!
As well as Regional Events, SU puts on a yearly Convention. This year it was held in Canberra, next year it will be held in Brisbane - and I have booked my accommodation already!!. This is an amazing 3 days of stamping fun. You get to go to organised classes, attend the general sessions where you learn all the exciting news about what's new, you can win prizes of never-seen-before product from new catalogues, you get to meet Shelli herself (the co-founder and CEO of Stampin' Up!), and of course other wonderful demos from all over Australia and New Zealand!! You get treated like royalty and you have an absolute blast! I can't wait!
Part of Convention is reserved for those demonstrators that have their own team of demonstrators. This is called the Managers Meeting and I am making that my goal this year. I would like to go to the Managers Meeting and find out all the juicy details they keep just for this meeting! It is an intimate meeting with Shelli and some of the people from Head Office and all of the ladies that go, absolutely love every minute! I really really want to go!! BUT I need you help to get there! I need three more lovely ladies to join my team now. If you think that you would like to be a part of my team, contact me today! You get an amazing starter kit - click here - completely customisable by you. You pick exactly what you want up to the value of $235 for ONLY $169!! That's an amazing offer in itself! PLUS you will get a business pack worth $80 completely free, and the whole lot ships straight to you for FREE!

PLUS, just for joining my team, and making your first minimums, you will receive a mystery box full of SU product for FREE! Some of it is retired, and some current, but all of it is brand new! You will never be pressured to make more than your minimums, ever! Your business your way always! And if you find that SU is not for you, don't worry, you can leave at any time and not owe a thing! You will be missed, but not pressured in any way to stay!
I really do need your help to go to Managers, but most of all, I want to share the world of Stampin' Up! with you, in the way that works for you the best.
I would love to hear from you, so feel free to contact me to ask any questions (no question is silly!!) or to chat further about this deal or what SU means to me. You don't have to be the most artistic person in the world to enjoy SU product - that is what makes this product so fabulous! You don't have to be the best salesman in the world to sell SU product - it really sells itself!( You can join just for the minimum 20% discount if you like, no pressure to sell!) You do have to enjoy papercraft in general and stamping in particular, and if you have never done it before, I would love to catch up and stamp with you, no stress, no fuss, free of charge and obligation. ..... but don't be surprised if you fall in love with making your own cards and things!
So, I would love to chat with you - call, text or email me today!
until next time...

Tom Cruise and a Doctor's Bag!!

Hi there stampers!

I just spent an interesting morning at my local cinema where I saw "Rock of Ages" starring Tom Cruise - that man blew me away in this role!! He has come across a bit odd in recent years, but anyone who can make a fool out of themselves in such a great way, certainly has a fantastic sense of humour in my book! Don't go thinking this is a 'serious' musical, it is as much a spoof as it could be - and I loved every minute of it! Thank goodness there were only a few people in the cinema with me, because I sang along with all the songs!! (mind you, so did they lol!).

I got home to find hubby had hung out the washing on what has turned out to be a gorgeous day weather-wise, and a parcel for me from Stampin' Up! which turned out to be the Doctor's Bag for my bigshot!! It is much bigger than I imagined and inside it is the most gorgeous shade of pink!! (and if you know me, you know how much I like pink!!) - I can't wait to take this to my next workshop and show it off!!
Here are a couple of pics for you to drool look over - you never know, you may just have to have one of your own!!

Here it is before I got it out of the box.


Here it is opened up and ready to be filled.


How gorgeous is that pink lining??
As you can see, the Doctor's Bag holds the Big Shot perfectly flat with plenty of room for dies or folders or anything you would like to put in there! It also comes with a long handle if you would like to carry it over your shoulder. I could even see this as an overnight bag.....and the best news of all - I got it for half price!! Yep, half price. Want to know how? If you have sales of $600 or more, you get to choose 1 item from the catalogue for half price - any item!! You could choose this bag, or the big shot or one of the dies, or a punch or........anything! That's a huge saving! And it's on top of the $100 in free spending dollars you get as the hostess!
But wait, there's more!! Stampin' Up! are currently running a promotion that gives you an EXTRA $90 to spend on top of the already fabulous hostess spending dollars that are always on offer! If your sales get to $650, you get to spend a massive $190 for FREE from either of our current catalogues - the annual and mini! And it only gets better! The more sales you have, the more you get to spend for free - up to a massive $290!! Click here to see the graph of sales and rewards!


As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I get to take advantage of all of these specials as well, which means that I get an additional (minimum) 20% off that special as well, making the bag 70% off!! Can't get better than that! If either of these specials sound good to you and you want to know more, contact me and we can chat! What do you have to lose? NOTHING LOL!! Just fantastic products at a fantastic price and if you choose to become a demonstrator (it's the best thing I have EVER done!!) you still have nothing to lose - it is always your business your way! Run it how and when you like. And if you choose to just join for the fantastic discounts, you can leave at any time without owing anything, and although you will be missed, you won't be hassled to rejoin! Totally your choice!
Don't forget that fantastic joining offer - you can choose up to $235 of Stampin' Up! product for only $169 - that could be the bigshot and some dies, or the doctor's bag, stamps and cardstock, or our gorgeous dsp, or how about some punches?? Any combination you choose! And you get a business pack worth $80 absolutely free - and it ships straight to your door absolutely free!! You can join online in minutes, get your ID number immediately and be on your way! You don't even have to wait until your kit arrives!! I have so much to share with you - give me a call today and organise a time to get together or chat over the phone. To join online, head to my website and click on 'join now' up in the corner on the right - and you will be on your way!!I am also happy to do it with you or guide you over the phone if you prefer!
Anyway, until next time....

Paying the Love Forward!!

Hey there, peeps!

Just thought I would pop in today to say that I have just been awarded the Leibster Award! I received an email from Angela over at Scrappin' For Sanity to say that she was giving me the Award - and it has made my day! For those that don't know about this, it's to promote up and coming blogs, ones that generally have less than 200 followers.

The rules are simple -
1. Thank your Leibster Blog Award Presenter on your blog (Thanks for making my day, Angela!).
2. Link back to the presenter.
3. Pick 5 of your favourite blogs with less than 200 followers.
4. Notify them by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Put the blog award on your blog.

Here are my 5 picks -
1. Julia Leece at Julia's Cards
2. Delys Cram at Little Scraps of Paper
3. Yvonne Walker at Yvonne's Creative Corner
4. Vicki Were at Vicki's Stampin' Room
5. Anna Mangnall at The Stampin Corner

I chose some wonderful demonstrators from New Zealand to share the Award with, so I hope you can stop by and say hi - I am sure they would love to hear from you!

Mystery Box up for grabs!!

I also thought I would share how much I would like you to join my team here at Stampin' Up! If you love to craft as much as I do, and you want to be able to experience the wonderful world of Stampin' Up!, I have a fantastic offer! I have 2 mystery boxes, chock full of SU product - some of it is retired and some of it is current, but ALL of it is brand new - and I want to share it with you! If you think that you would like to be a part of my team, and you are commited to making your minimums until at least the end of the year,  I would love to present you with this box! BUT only the first 2 new demonstrators to join my team will be able to take advantage of this fantastic offer! (Your box of goodies will be delivered to you once you have placed your first order).

But this is not the only offer to join Stampin' Up! Our joining special has changed, and now you can join this amazing company for only $169, and you will get to choose $235 worth of fabulous product from our current Annual and Mini catalogues! And it ships straight to you for free! You can join online through my Stampin' Up! website here in just minutes (make sure you have your order written down and it must be $235 or less) and you could be on your way! It really is that simple - contact me today to ask any questions, I am always available to help. If you are local to me, I am happy to get together, if you aren't local, happy to coach you over the phone. You get so many benefits from joining this exciting company - free catalogues when they come out, sneak peeks and the offer to purchase product early so that you can make samples to show your customers if you choose, you can earn free product, win free product at our conventions, go to training days, both nationally and with your team if you choose. No pressure to go above your minimums, ever! No pressure to do more than you are comfortable with - if you choose to run it as a business, you work when and where you like, around your job or your family or your lifestyle! If you join just as a hobby demo, that's great too! Why not get your favourite products at a fantastic discount?? I have been a demonstrator for just over 3 years, and I run it around my family commitments. I work when it suits me, and it has both brought in some extra money to spend on anything I choose, and helped me grow my business by earning free product to increase my stash! Last month SU ran a promotion - if a new demonstrator joined my team, not only did she get a free paperpack of her choice each month for the rest of the year, so did I! These offers come around every so often (at least yearly) and they all contribute to running your business in an affordable way - and who doesn't like getting something for FREE??
Feel free to give me a call/text/email to find out more about Stampin' Up! or how to join, or just to have a chat about our products - I really would be happy to help you. If you would like to have a look at the website, click here and it will take you to the home page. Have a look around and check out all the wonderful things SU has to offer!

Have a great night all - here in the West, we are expecting a big storm in a few hours, so I hope wherever you are that you are safe and warm.
