Welcoming Discount Stamp Shoppers

7 17 19bloghop1-001

I joined Stampin’ Up! 16 years ago to enjoy the demonstrator discount. It’s the #1 reason to join. It’s a good one because your dollars can purchase more Stampin’ Up! goodies. My #2 reason was because the UPS truck makes delivers directly to my front door step. I don’t like to shop for anything. So anticipating a UPS delivery is fun for me. My #3 reason was because all the colors coordinate between the cardstock, ribbons, embellishments and designer series papers. This makes for easier crafting time since I don’t need to hunt for the right hue. I have since evolved the reasons I remain a demonstrator as I moved towards offering stamping events for others to attend.

Stampin’ Up! is helping you to be a demonstrator with my #1 reason to join, being a discount shopper. Until August 31st, new demonstrators will receive an additional $30 to spend in their Starter Kit. That means you will select $155 worth of products for $99 plus tax! There is no shipping charge on the starter kit either so that’s a $15.50 savings! Stampin’ Up! will then email you a $10 coupon code to spend in September.

Add a comment to this post with your reasons to join my team would be. There are lots of reasons I have not listed. Your reasons can be totally different than mine. Contact me if you want to chat about being a demonstrator on my team and how I would support you as your reasons to remain a demonstrator evolve.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Happy Birthday


I hope you are enjoying our Happy Birthday themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to showcase the Dino Days suite. Pink is my least favorite color but flirty flamingo slips under the door as a super awesome color. Pair it with Pool Party ink and cardstock accents to make the flirty flamingo color pop.

Our glitter enamel dots add some sparkle without adding much thickness. This card can still be mailed with one USA Forever stamps. The Gathered Ribbon in Rococo Rose adds some texture, dino style.

Card Making and Scrapbooking on Monday night at Carol’s, Join Us!



We are spreading out at Carol’s for the Monday night paper crafting session. She lives about a mile west of me in an apartment complex that has a spacious, climate controlled community room on the first floor. Would you like to join us? The date is August 19th. The event starts at 6:30pm.

Card Buffet (click here for full event details) and Scrapbook with Me! (click here for full event details) will be available at Carol’s. RSVP and let me know which activity you would like to create. RSVP closes at 9am on Sunday so I have enough time to prepare kits.

You are welcome to bring friends! A new friend that has not stamped with me before earns you an extra card kit. If you are a member of my Super Awesome Stampers team, you get an extra kit too.

Place an order during the event or online prior to the event using Carol’s host code, 63QFBY44 and receive an extra kit.

Card designs feature NEW annual catalog products! I might be able to sneak in a fall/winter catalog design too. I’ll be having a design session this afternoon so not sure what I will come up with! All attendees will go home with a copy of the new fall/winter catalog too!

Please invite your friends! I reserve the right to cancel the session if less than 3 stampers RSVP.

Would you like a private session with your group? Just ask for dates!

Hope to stamp with you then!
