I'm a Stampin' Up! grandma!

About a month ago, I was contacted through my Demonstrator Business Website by Alyson who was looking for information on signing up to become a Demo. The end all of that conversation was she did join up during SAB and her Starter kit which was already a great deal, was 15% off and she got an additional set for free!

SAB is now over but another Recruiting promo is still on which is the ability to split your Starter Kit payment into 3 payments. This is on until the end of April so if you are being held back by the financial start up costs, please contact me so I can give you more information.

So how does that make me a SU! Grandma? Well, Alyson held her first workshop last week and one lady who attended decided to sign up to get the 20% instant income/discount that all demos receive. Particularly since on your first order over $200, you receive an additional 10% instant income/discount!

One of the great things about SU! is the ability to be as active or business minded as you like. As long as you make your quarterly minimums to stay active, SU! doesn't care if you only buy for yourself for the discount or you try to find customers and hostesses and try to actually make money.

As your upline, I will spend several hours with you over the course of the first several weeks, one on one with training and advice. Both through email, phone and in person. Once you are set up and have the basics down, I am always available to help answer questions or figure something out and as well I will have bi-monthly downline meetings where we will learn, educate, share and get our fingers inky. The next meeting is to be May 12th at 9:30am.

If you have any questions about becoming a Stampin' Up! Demo, please contact me by phone or email. It's a great way to either get a discount on your own paper craft purchases or to earn some money.

Day 3 and the reveal!

I was spoiled by my secret sister Brandi! Thank-you so very much Brandi!!!!!!! LOVE everything! And holy cow you spoiled me big time and got me things I probably never would of bought but can't wait to try! Todays present was a very cool card with a reflection technique (which one did you do?) and how did you do the color wash? ) With a very nice long note which I appreciate from the bottom of my heart.

She also made a darling chipboard coaster calender tied together with a ring that is vanilla colored (did it come that way or did you paint it?) Of course all the months are in French which is oh so cool! I really need to practice up on my French skills before August And finally a nifty box filled with 4 cards. Love that background stamp... what one is it? and the boots keep calling my name too! Love what you do with them. The envies are Open end envies are they? WE must only carry them in white now... oh so cute!!!! Love how the lid drops down on the box.

Sure do appreciate our friendship and can't wait to give you a huge hug in August!

Secret Sister Day 2!

And I was even more spoiled!!!!!!!!!!!

Day two I opened up to find a darling little wood box... images stamped on the side.. purdy DSP on top with die cuts on top with jumbo eyelets and jumbo brads inside. I totally have to get those jumbo brads! They rock! ribbon wrapped around with the super jumbo brad on the latch. Totally cool! And would of been so awesome on its own, but when I opened the box.. there was a FULL SET of Chunky Essentials Glitter which I've NEVER had or used! Holy cowsers! I'm going to have to learn how to use glitter!!!!!!!! ITs' so amazing! Even the containers are decorated of course! It totally rocks!!!!!!

Secret Sister Swap Time!

One of the reasons I've been so quiet on the blog lately is I'm been working like crazy on a variety of projects that I haven't been able to post yet. One included a Secret Sister swap which is for 3 days of projects/gifts to be opened three consecutive days before Easter. So today is day one :) Here is a collage of all the gifts in the very cool tin that they all came packaged in... and all the gifts! Wow! look at them all! And this morning I allowed my twins to open up day 1 goodies for me since there was 2 of them. The first package had a very nummy treat of Guylian chocolate easter eggs in a little cello bag topped with the exclusive Stampin' Up! Top Note diecut. oh can't wait to break into those! The second gift is even cooler! It's a credit card sized hinged tin with a mini accordian scrapbook attached to that little ribbon pull tab. It's all ready to go with pictures of the twins! Just have to print them out now :) It's decorated with one of the new brads (have to get them now!) and I think they are the new felt flowers too.. talk about enabling with a gift! I actually have some of these tins too and hadn't got to making something up for them so its very exciting!
Stay tuned for day 2!
