More To Sale-a-brate

Sale-a-bration is a great time to join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator. Talk about double-dipping! You can:
  • purchase the starter kit at a 15% discount which means you get over $310 of products for only $148.75!!
  • receive a Bonus Bundle (up to $50) on top of the fabulous Starter Kit
  • AND if you join soon, you'll have enough time to hold your first workshop* during Sale-a-bration which runs through March 31
*you receive a 30% discount on your first order placed as a demonstrator so it's fantastic to be able to place that order during Sale-a-bration
Becoming a Demonstrator FAQs:
Do I get a discount? Yes, the base demonstrator discount is 20%.
Do I have to sell or order a minimum amount? Yes, but it is not a large amount. Stampin' Up! demonstrators have a $300/quarter (so $100/month) minimum order requirement to stay active. Many "demonstrators" never hold a workshop, they just order that much for their own scrapbooking/crafting needs while enjoying the discount and special perks for demonstrators.
Isn't hard to be creative all the time? You don't have to be. We have such a sharing group of demonstrators and our own online community that you could hold hundreds of workshops and never once have to come up with your own project!
How do I sign up? It's easy! You can email me with your phone number and I will call you. Or if you want to do it RIGHT NOW, follow the link at the end and use demonstrator authorization password "stampin4fun". Click here to sign up
And one of the best things about signing up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator?
There's no penalty for changing your mind. You get over $310 of products for $148.75 and if you decide you don't want to be demonstrator, you do not ever have to place another order. You can just enjoy the fabulous starter kit, no one will be mean to you! :) Although, I think you will find it's a fun opportunity.
That's all I've got! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Have Your Button and Send It Too!

If you love buttons on cards, but not the hassle of extra padding for the mail...then you will love Stampin' Up!s new Button, Button stamp set.

Valentine card featuring Greeting Card Kids stamp set This Valentine card also uses Stampin' Up!s new Framed Tulips embossing folder for the Big Shot. What a great tool for making a simple card that looks fantastic.

Both of these items are in the new Occasions mini-catalog. If you need a copy, just email me (or your current Stampin' Up! demonstrator) to get one sent out right away.

I apologize for the long delay but hope to be back on a more regular schedule now--just in time for Sale-a-bration!! Details tomorrow.
