Something to try

Here is a card that you might like to try to make.

Stamp Sets: Short & Sweet, Build a Blossom
Cardstock: Whisper White, Old Olive and Regal Rose
Inks: Old Olive, Regal Rose
Accessories: Address labels, Blossom Petals punch, 3/4 inch circle punch, Neutral buttons

How to make this card:

Old Olive 21cm x 15cm, 12.4cm x 7cm and off cuts for punching the leaves.
Regal Rose 12.9cm x 7.5cm and off cuts to puch the petals.
Whisper White 14.4cm x 10cm
3 address labels 6.4cm x 4.8cm each

With the three address lables still on their backing sheet stamp the flower and leaf images at random using the old olive and regal rose inks. To get lighter shades of these two colours I stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on the address labels.

Take the address labels off the backing sheet and stick onto the old olive cardstock. If you start with the middle one it will be a little easier to line up.

Using Dimensionals mount the old olive onto the regal rose cardstock.

On the white cardstock stamp your sentiment with old olive ink and adhere onto the old olive card base.

Dimensional the regal rose cardstock to the whisper white cardstock.

Punch out 6 petals usind the regal rose cardstock and punch out one 3/4 inch circle out of regal rose cardstock.

Stamp the petal design on each petal using regal rose ink. Adhere the six petals to the circle.

Punch out two large and one small leaf out of the old olive cardstock. Adhere to the back of the flower.

Adhere the button to the top of the flower and dimensional to the card front.

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.

Please call me if you would like any further information or would like to join the club. There are still places available for this club.

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.
