Have an awesome day we have severe weather- tornados, storms, gloom, and lots of thunder, lightening and rain! So I will be creating in the studio today and shutting off the computer (just in case).
See you this Saturday in my booth at the Pleasant Hope Crop in Pleasant Hope, Missouri.
For every business woman out there!
The last minute of this video is right on!
I have shared before that I am part of an awesome demo only group called sutagging
and I received this awesome tag/card made by Stephanie Metcalf this week in the mail! I love snail mail!
Hope you all are as insprired as I am~
Have an awesome day! I have already walked 3 miles, did the dishes and laundry and am now ready to get on with business projects!
I love creating with rubberstamps and paper. I get a tremendous sense of accomplishment from creating something unique out of paper. I am thrilled to watch someone open a card or scrapbook and be surprised and delighted by what I have created just for them.
THAT is why I do what I do.

I am so excited that I had to share this with you! I LOVE FREE Stampin Up!
Great Rewards is an incentive program that focuses on my efforts in personal sales and first-level downline promotions. The Great Rewards program is designed to work in conjunction with other programs to reward me/us for our efforts and to help motivate me to reach my own personal goals.
Here are the Great Rewards I chose last week! There is a wide and varied selection but these are what I needed/wanted this time and I still have rewards left over for next time!
I have been in the MLM industry for over 29 years, and NONE of the other companies had a fabulous program like this!
And just think, I signed up as a demo over 7 years ago JUST to buy for myself at discount and now I have 14 in my downline and consistant sales. I am able to work from home on MY hour schedule and still have time with family, friends, church and my gardens! WHY wouldn't people want to work for Stampin UP and earn extra income at their own pace? I can't imagine why not!

I am excited to share with you my new Ruffled Ribbon Video! I learned this technique over 40 years ago from my mom when she taught me needlepoint and how to make ribbon roses. I am excited to see it become popular again and it looks so gorgeous on projects!

I get alot of questions about our starter kit, Stampin Up as a company etc and I am sharing this Q & A with you to help answer all those questions!
Q: What is included in the Starter Kit?
A: Stampin’ Up! offers a standard Starter Kit and a Digital Starter Kit that was especially created for digital designers. These kits contain the essentials you’ll need to start your Stampin’ Up! business, including crafting tools and materials and business supplies. You can get details of what the kits contain on page eight of the Idea Book & Catalog or online HERE
Q: After I purchase the Starter Kit, how soon does it arrive?
A: Starter Kits are usually assembled and shipped one to three days after your application arrives. Depending on where you live, you will normally receive it within 7 to 10 days.
Q: How do I pay for the Starter Kit?
A: You can use a credit/debit card,(for your online registration also) a check, or a money order for your mail in registration. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash.
Q: Do I need a credit card to pay for my Starter Kit?
A: We take checks and money orders, in addition to credit/debit cards.
Q: Can I have the Starter Kit shipped to an address that is not my home address?
Q: What items can I substitute on the Starter Kit?
A: The Starter Kit Order Form, as well as the online form on your demonstrators’ website, shows which items can be substituted.
Q: Can I get the Big Shot with the free merchandise total and pay the difference?
A: No. Unfortunately, the Big Shot is not an option with the Starter Kit.
New Demonstrator Training
Q: What kind of training is available to help me get started in my Stampin’ Up! business?
A: There are lots of resources available on the demonstrator website, a site dedicated solely to supporting demonstrators and their business needs. Your upline demonstrator (Gwen Mangelson) is also a great resource.
Q: Is there a minimum sales requirement?
A: There is a minimum sales requirement for demonstrators, which is $300 per quarter (i.e., every three months). This is the equivalent to having one average size workshop a quarter.
Q: What if I sign up, but then decide I don’t want to be a demonstrator anymore?
A: You can drop at any time. There are no contracts requiring you to be a demonstrator a certain amount of time.
Q: How do I make money/commissions?
A: As a demonstrator, you can earn money in a variety of ways, including workshops, clubs, and online sales. You will also collect a commission from the sales of other demonstrators in your downline – demonstrators that you recruit. You can learn more about this on the demonstrator website under My Business>Career Plan.
Q: Who do I call with questions if my demonstrator is not available?
A: Our Demonstrator Support department is available Monday-Friday, 7:00 AM (MT) through 7:00 PM (MT). The number is easy to remember: 1-800-STAMP UP.
Q: Do I get customer referrals? How do they work?
A: As a demonstrator, you can subscribe to Demonstrator Business Web Services (DBWS), which provide you with your own customizable business website. Subscribing will also enable you to be found on the web and receive referrals through the online Demonstrator Locator. Of course, one of the best ways to receive referrals is through family and friends who have participated in workshops with you.
Q: How do I get ideas for my workshops?
A: Stampin’ Up! provides various resources such as a monthly demonstrator magazine, Workshop Wizard (located on the demonstrator website), as well as Stampin’ Connection, which is a social site exclusively for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators where they can meet and exchange ideas and training. Your upline (Gwen Mangelson) will also be a valuable resource.
Q: How do I invite people to host or attend workshops?
A: There are many ways to do this. Training is available through your upline (the demonstrator under which you signed up- Gwen Mangelson), as well as through the demonstrator website. However, to answer your question directly, one good way to start out is by hosting your own workshop. Invite your friends and family, and show them how fun a workshop can be. When you are done, you will have a pool of people who may be willing to host workshops of their own.
Q: Can I change hostess sets for other non-hostess stamp sets?
A: No, but extra hostess sets don’t have to just sit on the shelf. They make ideal door prizes, hostess gifts, or purchase incentives!
Q: Can I host my own workshop?
A: Yes. Stampin’ Up! allows you to be your own hostess and get the hostess benefits.
Q: How does recruiting work?
A: When you share the Stampin’ Up! business opportunity with others and they join, you are building your business and increasing your earning potential. A combination of recruiting and personal sales will help you achieve higher demonstrator titles, as well as earn larger commissions.
Q: Why do I want to build a downline?
A: When you recruit other demonstrators, you are building your own business and increasing your earning potential. A combination of recruiting and personal sales will help you achieve higher demonstrator titles, as well as earn larger commissions.
Q: How do I invite others to become demonstrators?
A: Simply ask! The key is really to talk about the business and share how much fun it can be. Over and over, we hear long-time customers tell us that they didn’t become demonstrators earlier simply because no one asked them.
General / Product
Q: What sets you apart from other stamping/scrapbooking/crafting companies?
A: They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we are very flattered by our competitors! Stampin’ Up! has been in business for over twenty years, and the thing that has always set us apart— besides our dedication to our demonstrators—is the quality and richness of our product selection. We offer products in exclusive designs and colors—all created to coordinate—that are simply not available anywhere else. We also offer products that appeal to a variety of audiences and markets—card makers, scrapbookers, and digital designers, as well as people interested in jewelry, vinyl, and home décor. Another important part of our company that sets us apart is our focus on personal relationships. We see these relationships develop among demonstrators, their customers, and hostesses.

OH MY GOSH! I had a blast yesterday at the 1/2 day Stampin Up! Regional!
Here are a couple photos from the day that Kay took, and the rest are in the photo album on the right column down the page about 1/2 way
Thats my pal Leslie with Kay
Yep- Mr Swap- he has so much fun and I am truly blessed to have a husband and business partner to work with!
It was AWESOME to have 4 of my downline, a guest and 2 new demo friends at our table!!
The crowd was so nice, funny and the swaps are to die for! I don't think I have ever attended a Regional were the "quality" of the swaps was so wonderful and I have been to 8 regionals in 7 years!
Gotta love the SU Crew! lol They love my husband too, can you tell? lololol
We had SO much fun!! Be sure to check out the projects in the photo album!

I love, love, love, Stampin Up! Regionals and this week we have a 1/2 day Regional in Branson~ only 45 minutes from my home! Woo Hoo!
At these amazing events, we take swaps- a card "front" or a 3-d project and swap with another demonstrator so that when we come home, we have all these awesome samples to show off and we didn't have to make them all!!
Here is one of the cards I am swapping! It's a beautiful and elegant Wedding or Anniversary Card.
I used the "Moonlight" Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink on the center of each flower #119969. What a lovely subtle elegant accent this Ink creates on projects! Did you notice the vellum bottom layer on the butterfly? Just that extra touch of elegance. You could use our pearls in place of the rhinestones too!
I hope this inspires you to create some beautiful wedding and anniversary cards too!
Have an awesome day and I will be posting photos from Regionals over the weekend
