So You Want To Be a Demonstrator!!!

So, I don't know if any of you are like me...a crazy woman avid stamper, but I want to share a bit about how I got started in stamping/paper craft and how Stampin Up came into my life.    When I was working full time, I had a friend who is a card maker and I envied her creativity and how beautiful her projects were....I said....I want to learn how to do this!!   However, as I was working full time, I really did not have any available time to learn or do any thing like that.   When I retired, my friend took me under her wing---and she shared with me all the materials and equipment she used as well as how to use them.   Hubby bought me my BIG SHOT and the rest is history.    For a couple of years I was creating cards---using materials from the Big Box stores and I was introduced to one of the On line Demos----Jessica Taylor---I quickly started following her videos and thought I should try some of their products.   Well, it was all over. I was hooked on Stampin' Up products.   The quality has no comparison!     It wasn't long when I realized that I needed to become a Demonstrator.   I just love what I do so much, and believe in the products, I just had to. I want to share with you a poem I wrote to encourage those of you who are contemplating being a Demonstrator.   I am telling you, once you TAKE THE STEP, you will never go back!   ENJOY!


Today I want to share with you

Exactly What I love to do.

I measure, & cut paper, ribbons & bows, 

Yes, it keeps me on my toes.

It started for me some five years ago now, 

A hobby I found quite accidently & how!

Stampin' Up, for me, met all of my needs,

Pretty paper, matching inks, with ribbons & beads.

Your projects for sharing follow an easy format, 

The supplies match "picture perfect" now how great is that!

You can sell online with your Blog & your Store, 

But Workshops & Classes offer so much more.

Your thinking, this is great! but there is so much more!

A 20% off you have discounts galore!

There are pre-sale ops with early release dates, 

Encouraging plenty of shopping with your new reduced rates.

Each Stampin' event, there is fun & friendship I know, 

Your group leaves so happy with their hearts all aglow.

And then there is ONSTAGE every Spring & Fall, 

You meet the greatest people & you all have a Ball!

For Shelli & Sara they are at the top of it all, 

Paving the way for success in those who answer the call.

To Love What We Do & Share What We Love,

Is the Statement Of The Heart we are very proud of.

So now please think of all I shared with you today, 

My goals is showing you what's available, so please don't delay.

If someday you decide you need something to do, 

Be a Stampin' Up Demo, it's the best thing for you!

Upcoming Changes with Stampin" Up

Hi Stamping Friends!

Just wanted you to all be aware of some upcoming changes that will be occuring very soon.   

1---PRICE CHANGES----As with any business, there will always be price changes in manufacturing and production, global exchange rate changes and competitive rates---after all Stampin' Up is a business like many others----so you will be seeing a SLIGHT increase in SOME prices----mostily I noted in Card Stock, the Medium Size Envelopes and Designer Paper.  There are a few other items I noted such as embossing powder and some other items.  A more comprehensive list will be available soon.   

2---CHANGES WITH DIE CUTTING AND EMBOSSING----Effective with the new 2019-20 Catalgoue, Stampin' Up will no longer be selling the Big Shot die cutting and embossing machine as well as any of the accessories that goes with it.  Now that being said, there are reasons.   Stampin' Up has had a 10 yr contract with Sizzex who brands the Big Shot.  The contract is expiring and the company would like to research and explore ways of improving and providing a better product.   There are many places where you an purchase a die cutting/ embossing machine.   And don't worry, your dies and embossing folders will work with any of the machines out there.

In addition, the embossing folders and dies will be different.   Again, it is an improvement and a change of manufacturing.   Only for the better.   

Since I will be attending the ONSTAGE event this Saturday in Salt Lake City, I know these changes will be addressed and I know I will obtain much more information that I will be able to share with you all.   

Remember that Change, tho scary, is always good...and we know that is something that we will always have in our lives.   I am sure that Stampin' Up will continue to have quality products to serve us all and we will all learn and grow together.   

I'll get back with all of you next week, when I return.
