Ink Refills

New stamp club due to start in September

What is a stamp club?  A stamp club is a group of 10 ladies who get together once a month. A requirement of the club is that each member purchases a minimum of $30.00 worth of SU! Products each month. The club will go for 10 months and each member will be allocated one month for hostess benefits.  These clubs are a wonderful way to purchase all of the products on your wish list along with getting hostess benefits based on a minimum  $300.00 workshop. If you are interested in being a part of the next stamp club starting in September please let me as soon as possible and I will put your name on the list. I am looking for 10 members.

Would you like a self-supporting hobby?

I know that there a lot of ladies who have thought from time to time about being a demonstrator so they can receive their product at a reduced price, earn a little bit of extra household income or just have a hobby that can support itself.
To remain an active demonstrator you are required to have commissionable sales of $400.00 per quarter, this works out to be less than $40.00 per week. (Commissionable sales are the total sales minus GST – so you will require total sales of $440.00 each quarter. How we get this figure is $440.00 divided by 1.1 equals $400.00, I simply took the GST out.

With your demonstratorship you do not have to do any scheduled events such as workshops or classes. As long as you reach your quarterly minimum sales and this may be done simply with the product you purchase for yourself or products that you sell to friends and family. There is no contract period for being a demonstrator – if your situation changes and SU! No longer works for you, you can end your demonstratorship without penalties.

What you can expect from me is ongoing support as required. I get together with the ladies in my downline about once a quarter to discuss what has been going on at Stampin’ Up!, we share ideas and do a group swap. I am available any the time to answer questions and provide support if you decide to run events.

The best part is this, you can now sign up to be a demonstrator for just $169.oo. The kit includes products of your choice to the value of $235.00 and the business bundle which includes catalogues, order forms and a range of business supplies to get you started.

There are only a few requirements to become a demonstrator – you must sign the Independent Demonstrators Agreement and there is a minimum sales requirement of $400.00 per quarter as mentioned above. This is such a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of. You will be able to work your own hours and share your hobby with other like-minded people. If you would like any further information please contact me and I will send out an information pack.

Something to try

This is an easy one using just a few basic products.

Cling Wrap - Direct to Ink Pad

Neutral Cardstock
Cling Wrap
Ink Pads

  1. Scrunch the cling wrap into a ball - the tighter you scrunch the cling wrap the tighter the pattern will be.
  2. Place the cling wrap directly into the ink pad.
  3. Press the inked cling wrap onto your card stock.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you achieve the desired look.

 Please note: metallic ink pads can be used but you must wait for each colour to dry prior to applying another.
