January Newsletter


Hi Ladies,

Happy New Year! I wish you all the very best for a wonderful 2013.

I have just started using the new Stampin’ Trimmer and I must admit I love it! It is just so much better than the previous trimmer that was available. You can lock the arm in place so you don’t lose your cutting or scoring blade, the extender arm locks in place so there is no moving when you are cutting larger pieces of cardstock and there is a storage compartment underneath to store small bits of cardstock, extra blades or embellishments.  Because I love this trimmer so much I am offering all of my wonderful customers the opportunity to purchase the Stampin’ trimmer for 10% off the catalogue price. Please refer to the "Stampin' Trimmer Special" post for all the details.

Stamp Club to start in February 2013

Please let me know if you are interested in being a part of this club.

What is a stamp club?

  • A group of people nominated in the club will get together once a month.
  • You will get to make two stamping projects each month (a small fee will be charged to cover the cost of materials) and there will be templates, patterns and technique sheets for each participant as well as lucky door prizes and on occasions a stamping competition. Participation in the monthly workshop is optional but if you choose not to attend you still must place your order for that month.
  •  As part of the club all members will agree on purchasing a set amount (or more) of merchandise from me the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator each month.
  • Each club member will take turns in being the hostess - your designated month cannot be changed once it is set.
  • The monthly Hostess is entitled to all free and incentive merchandise available for that month’s stamp club. For example: If the club merchandise total for the month is $302.00 the hostess will receive one Level One stamp set from the hostess benefits pages and $30.00 of free merchandise from any of the current catalogues.


How a Stamp club works


  • Let’s say my stamp club has 8 members Cheryl, Bobbie, Mary, Dianne, Kate, Lisa, Michelle and myself
  • The minimum Stampin’ Up! Demonstration to qualify for hostess benefits is $300.00 of course; you can always order more and get better benefits!
  • Each one of us agrees to purchase at least $37.50 of product each month plus postage. So that gives us the needed $300.00 total for hostess benefits. This month Dianne is the hostess Cheryl, Mary, Kate, and Dianne Purchase $37.50 Bobbie, Lisa, Michelle and Myself all spend $50.00 each and Dianne has brought in a outside order worth $20.00 that gives Dianne the hostess benefits that are available for having a $370.00 demonstration.
  • Once everyone has signed their commitment form, the participants are assigned to their months.
  • Sounds Good? Great! All you need to do is fill out the commitment form and as soon as there is a least 8 participants the club will begin.


Stamp Club can be a really inexpensive way to add to your stamp collection; however the success of the club depends on the members. You must commit to the full term of the club.  Also please note this isn’t intended to take the place of workshops and classes. Even if you are one of the participants in the club you can still attend all class and workshops as desired.
