CELEBRATING 9 YEARS WITH STAMPIN’ UP!

9 years ago today I joined Stampin’ Up! I really can’t believe it!

I thought I would share my journey in discovering Stampin’  Up! all those years ago.  I hope you don’t mind.

I remember that first workshop I went to. All I knew of stamping was messy kids stamps but I went because I was just starting to make cards. Well! I was so impressed! It was all so beautiful, the colours, the stamps, oh! and the heat embossing. So magic! I was hooked.

I remembered feeling so overwhelmed though. Where do you start? So I bought the stamp set we used Seeing Spots and some card and ink. When I got it though I had no idea what to do. It sat for a while on my desk. There was no Pinterest then and I didn’t know about Google searching. I was not tech savvy to search too much for that.

I eventually had a go with the products – with interesting results.  Today in celebration I thought I would share my cards with you. I think we know each other well enough now for me to put myself out there and to give you a little chuckle.

Aren’t they lovely?? 😜

I used my Seeing Spots set. The white card has the spots heat embossed I think. I added a few little extra embellishments that I had. Haha! I think I have improved over the time. I hope so anyway??

It took 18 months before I actually joined Stampin’ Up! though after that first workshop. My husband was diagnosed with Cancer and life changed. Thankfully after treatment he made a full recovery.  Then I joined Stampin’  Up! and began my creative journey.  I have met some amazing people along the way and many have become good friends. I love that Stampin’  Up! has brought us together whether they are fellow demonstrators or customers.  Also I love that I have made friends near and far.  I think I now have friends in nearly every continent of the world.  How exciting and richer my life has become.

I started this blog not long after I joined. I had no idea of blogging  but I wanted to share my journey with stamps and ink, hence why I called this blog “a stamping journey”.

So THANK YOU for sharing in my journey. I hope I have inspired you along the way. I look forward to sharing many more projects with you in the future.

To another year of stamping. 🙂

Being March it means that we are in to our last month of Sale-A-Bration. Another name for Sale-A-Bration would be FREEBIES!!!  Because you get free stuff whether you Shop, Host or Join.

I thought I would just update you on how you can.

In total you get $414 of products, but you are only paying $169.  Fair Dinkum!  You have to love free stuff.  Have a look at your wish list.  Is it longer than $169???

LET’S TALK STAMPIN’ UP!

The Holiday Catalogue has been out for a month now and we have had the Annual Catalogue out for a few months. How is that Wish List going? Still adding to it?

There is so much to love isn’t there?

I am so grateful that I get a discount whenever I order anything. (Even a few freebies doesn’t hurt either!). 🙂

love-the-products_contact

So what would it mean for YOU to get a discount on what you order?

Perhaps it will enable you to buy a few extra craft things you couldn’t get, or use that savings on your grocery bill? Why do we have to eat right, or clean the house for that matter!

You love stamping.  You love the Stampin’ Up! products – and you want it all!

Have you considered Joining Stampin’ Up! to get your own Discount?

OK before you start hyperventilating. I know you are thinking I can’t do parties and classes.  (I am sure that you could show a couple of friends your amazing cards.  You might even do that already. It doesn’t have to be anything formal or fancy).

You don’t have to do Classes or Parties.  It is entirely up to you.  You can sit at your table and craft away – but save money in the process.

What is involved in joining Stampin’ Up!?

You choose $235 of products from any of the current catalogues and Pay only $169.  You don’t even pay for the shipping.  How is that!   That is a huge saving!

Check out this example below to see how it works.  Here you could save $75.91 just by joining Stampin’ Up!

sample-kit-with-savings

I am sure you have more than $169 on your own wish list right?

To remain active with Stampin’ Up! you do have a quota to put in each quarter which is approximately $450 AUS. I think your wish list will keep you going for a while though. You might have friends (or new-found friends) who will order from you.

You can stay as long as you want.  All the time enjoying a minimum of 20% discount.

What you will get out of it?

  • You will receive a minimum 20% discount and that can increase.
  • You will even receive a few free items along the way!
  • Each week you receive an email from Stampin’ Up! with a cute project.
  • A quarterly magazine from Stampin’ Up! with easy to create projects and you can read about other Demonstrators from around the world.
  • Access to an online Forum with literally thousands of projects to inspire you.
  • But best of all, the friendships. I have made so many friends locally and now globally and we all share in this fun hobby of stamping.

Now you are thinking “You are too far away from me to support me!” Isn’t technology wonderful with emails, texts, phones and even Skype! As long as you are an Australian resident, you can join with me.  I help you all the way.

Want to know more?

Head to my ‘Join my Team’ Page HERE where I list 10 reasons why you need to be a part of this wonderful family (and my Team).

Still not sure?

Ask me to send you my “Thinking About It” package, which includes some information sheets – and a blank card for you to send on to someone.

Ready to join already?

Yes, I want that discount.

You can join my lovely team the JEN’s INK. right now on my website HERE.

I help you along the way whatever you want to do.

I have been a Demonstrator for over 8 years now.  I have loved so much about it.  My only regret is that I didn’t join sooner.  So don’t have the same regrets as me.

So contact me for more information, or head right to my website now to join the family.  I look forward to welcoming you.

HONEYCOMB HAPPINESS CHICK!

Tomorrow is the last day of Sale-A-Bration for the year! Do you think this time has flown by too?  Crazy! I am squeezing in a couple of last minute Sale-A-Bration cards with you.

I have loved colouring this little chick from ‘Honeycomb Happiness’.  Isn’t his (or her) face sweet? This card I made a few weeks ago to send out to a few customers I haven’t heard from in a while.  The idea came from Pinterest.  I changed the size to make it a standard size card.

hello

I have coloured the chick with the Hello Honey inkpad and aquapainter. I love how he is peeking out from the circle.  I cut 2 circles in Calypso Coral card and created a window frame for him. I have layered it on the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Wildfower Fields’ and layered this to a Calypso Coral card mat and then a Thick Whisper White cared base. The card was finished off with some punched flowers using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and some Rhinestone bling.

This next card was made for a friend’s daughter who is not well.  I just thought I would cheer her up.  This card was also cased from Pinterest.

Kate's card

The chick is once again painted with the Inkpad (Daffodil Delight) and aquapainter.  I cut it out and raised it up off the card with dimensionals.  I stamped the balloon on the card and then stamped it again separately and raised it up.  The Designer Series Paper is from the ‘It’s My Party’ paper stack and matted on Black and then on the card base of Calypso Coral.  You can’t see it but I did add some Wink of Stella  sparkle on the balloon.

Don’t forget to get your last minute Sale-A-Bration orders in.  I am taking orders until 8pm tomorrow night or you can order online at my store HERE.

Thanks for visiting,

Jenny
