Sketch Challenge

 
 
A little while ago I had a stamping week end and I set a sketch challenge for the ladies. The sketch that I used was from Mojo Monday - just love this blog to get new card layouts!
 
This is the card that I made following the sketch. I will post the other ladies creations over the coming days. Keep an eye out for "Sketch Challenge" in the post title.

August Newsletter


Hi Ladies,

It’s nice to be home after two week in America attending the SU! Grand Vacation in Utah and spending time on the East Coast visiting with friends in New Jersey as well as spending time in New York and going to Niagra Falls.

The time in Utah was amazing. Head office in Riverton and the manufacturing facility in Kanab was amazing. I will be posting pictures on my blog in the coming days so please stop by to take a look.

Would you like a free product bundle? The answer is yes of course!!!

All you need to do is host a workshop/party between now and the end of October to get an entry in the draw. If your workshop/party sales are $400.00 or more you will receive an extra entry. The bundle will include cardstock, accessories, stamp sets, premade gifts and possibly even a voucher to purchase some new products from the annual or seasonal catalogue. For every five booking I get I will add one packet of Designer Series Paper to the bundle. Please call me to schedule your workshop/party.
 
Bring a Friend
I just love see so many familiar faces in classes, workshops and clubs but I thought that it might be fun to include some new faces as well. I know that you may be thinking that your friends are not interested in papercraft but it would be great to see them and of course it doesn’t hurt to ask, if nothing else they get to spend a bit of time with you. So what I am going to do is this. If you bring a new face to a workshop, class or club I will give you a nice product bundle just to say a huge thank you. Of course if you are planning on bring your friend to a club or class please let me know ahead of time so I can prepare the materials for them.

Class – Stamp-a-stack: Card for Women
Date:  Saturday, 31st August
Time:  1pm
Fee:  $30.00

Make six cards that are suitable women. The cards will include a variety of techniques as well as using a selection of embellishments including ribbons and brads.

Please bring all adhesives, scissors, bone folder, paper trimmer, aqua painter or blender pen to the class.
Please call or email me to register for this class. A $10.00 non-refundable deposit is required for this class.

Quick Class – Father’s Day
Date: Thursday, 22nd August
Time: 7pm
Cost: $10.00

New Catalogue

The new catalogue has now launched, if you would like a copy of the catty please let me know. The cost is $5.00 for pick up only.
Something to try: Distressing DSP

What you will need DSP, a sanding block, stamping sponge and an ink pad.

Sand the DSP in different directions and on different sections– this will give the DSP a worn look. Once you are happy with how it looks dust off the sanded paper. Ink up the stamping sponge in a slightly darker colour than the DSP and apply the ink to the sanded areas. I find that applying the ink a circular motion works well. Use your distressed DSP on your project. This same technique can also be used with the core-dinations cardstock.

Be the Difference

The theme for Convention 2013 was "Be the Difference" What made this convention so much more special is that Stampin' Up! is also celebrating its 25th birthday this year.

What a wonderful convention. All the attendees were very spoilt, we received gifts, prizes, there were workshop wows and insirational presentations.

The 2014 convention will be on the 22nd to 24th May, 2014 and will be held in Melbourne. Conventions are so much fun and I think that all Stampin' Up! lovers should have the opportunity to attend one. You don't have to a demonstrator to attend but this is an advantage as your registration fee is generally a bit cheaper - and we all love to save a bit of money!

May Newsletter


Hi Ladies,

I need to start by apologizing for not sending out any newsletters for a few months. Between being busy with clubs, workshops and getting the last bits and pieces done before going away to the USA and Mexico for a few weeks the newsletter was put on the back burner. Hopefully things will be back to normal at least for a little while anyway.

I wanted to let you all know that I achieved the Grand Vacation with SU! this year. The trip is to Utah in July….cannot wait; it is going to be so much fun. Thank you so much to my wonderful downline and ever so supportive customers for helping me to achieve this wonderful trip.

Ok, there is a lot happening with SU! At the moment from MDS and online ordering to hostess specials and colour refresh. So please take a look at the information below and the attached flyers.  

Online Ordering

Online ordering is finally available. This can be done through my web site http://jacinta.stampinup.net

Ordering online is a convenient way to place your orders when it suits you, any time day or night. If you place an order that qualifies for hostess benefits you will still receive the standard hostess dollars and any half price items that you may be entitled to. To order online you will be required to pay for the order by credit card.

Stampin’ Up! May Promotion

The promotion for May is for all hostesses. Once your workshop sales have reached $400.00 or more you will receive an extra $60.00 in hostess benefits. This promotion applied to both workshops and catalogue workshops. The promotion ends on May 30th. If you would like to book a workshop please contact me to schedule a date.

 

Why Book a workshop/party?

Well first it is so much fun. Everyone will get to see the products being used and all guests will leave having made their own project. So not oly do you see the products being used you also get to try them out for yourselves.

Secondly, hosting a worshop or party is the quickest and easiest way to earn yourself free products and half price products. For example if your total sales from your workshop was $324.00 you will then receive $50.00 in Hostess Dollars to spend on any current products. If your sales were $652.00 you would receive $100.00 Hostess Dollars, the extra $60.00 hostess benefits promotion and one item at half price. For your half price item you could get the big shot for $75.00! I have included a copy of the hostess benefits table below.

Also you get to share your love of papercraft with family and friends.
