WHY I LOVE BEING A STAMPIN’ UP! DEMONSTRATOR!

I have a little personal post for you today.  Well kind of.  I celebrated 11 years as a Demonstrator last week.  That is just crazy!

It made me think about this journey I have been on.  I shared this with some people on my newsletter list but I thought I would share it with you – because you are all important to me too in this crazy, fun, unpredictable, messy, emotional (yes!) journey I am on.  (I have changed it a little just for you).

So I hope you will indulge me.

I joined Stampin’ Up! in August 2008. This 11 years as a Demonstrator has certainly flown.  I have to say there has been ups and downs along the way but overall I have loved it.

Most of all, I have loved meeting so many people and making friends just like you. Now I have so many friends close by and from around the world.  I wouldn’t have met all these lovely people if it wasn’t for Stampin’ Up!

It’s crazy to think that stamps and ink can bring people close together.

For me I had always set out to make this a business to add to the income for my family and to work it around time with them.  That was such a blessing at the time, and it still is great being so flexible.  Even now my children are adults it’s great being able to work around spending time with them when they are at home.

It has really built my self-confidence.  I struggle talking with people but it has helped me being able to connect with like-minded people and being able to encourage them in their creative endeavours.  For that I am so grateful for.

Whether it is face-to-face or through my blog or other social media I hope that I can encourage each of you to create and to share.  This is what brings a smile to my face and gives me great joy.

But how fun is to play with stamps and paper everyday! Just sayin’ 😉

I will tell you my biggest regret though – is that I didn’t start this journey earlier.  I deliberated for 18 months before I joined although there was some other personal reasons for the delay too.  but how many more people I could have met and to have so much more discount early on.  All the learning and exploring too.  But to finally take the plunge was so exciting.

Apart from celebrating my 11 years I wanted to let you know why I have joined Stampin’ Up! and why I am still here even with the challenges that come with products and supply.  That’s not what it is entirely about.  But have you considered joining Stampin’ Up! and still have reservations??  What are you waiting for??

If you are in Australia you can join in this with me and – get the discount for yourself. (Don’t put it off like I did). Even if you don’t plan to work at it as a business. And don’t feel once you sign up you are “stuck” in it for ever. You can leave anytime.  (And BTW if you are overseas and considering it why not seek out a local demonstrator for you to start enjoying this too).

Even if being part of Stampin’ Up! is not as a business for you, the discount is such a blessing to off-set those stamping purchases.  Maybe more stamping supplies with it … 😉  And meeting all those new friends. Don’t forget that part of it.

There is a great opportunity this month so I wouldn’t delay it any longer.  There is only one week left. Read about it all below.EXTRA, EXTRA!

During July and August there has been an awesome promotion inviting others like yourself to join Stampin’ Up!  I want you to have all this opportunity yourself.

I want you to experience that discount and to have the opportunity to connect with others too.

With this promotion time is running out.  You have less than one week.  Don’t be like me and put it off.  Seriously.  You can’t lose.  Just give it a go.

Stampin’ Up! are giving away so many free products at the moment. (In fact $111 of free products and then an extra $16 voucher!). (This is Australian figures).

Really you need to know about this.

I am sure you have a long Wish List yourself of Stampin’ Up! products.  Is it more than $169? Why pay more than $169 right!!

Come and join the Stampin’ Up! family. Come and join the JEN’s INK team and get so many extra products PLUS an extra $16 voucher to use in September.

***In total you are getting $127 of free products. Seriously! are you going to knock that back??

When you join the Stampin’ Up! family you are not just getting LOTS of extra free products.

Just like I have already mentioned. You make so many great new friends,  You are inspired by amazing projects in the quarterly Demonstrator magazine, you get to travel to different events throughout the year if you like to, and even get free products along the way… And, you can leave at any time.

SNOWFLAKE SHOWCASE WEEK – DAY 5 + 12 WEEKS OF CHRISTMAS WEEK 6. WHAT A TREAT!

     

Two in One for you today.  It’s Friday which means I have a special project for you for our 12 Weeks of Christmas series.  And since it is the end of our Snowflake Showcase Week let’s use snowflakes for this project.  I do hope you like this.

I wanted to create a special Christmas Gift Tag/Ornament using the Snowflakes but keeping it simple so you can easily create a few of them.

To create the Snowflake Tag/Ornament

Cut the large snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits from White Velvet Paper. Cut the next size down snowflake from Silver Glimmer Paper, the next size down from Tranquil Tide and one of the smaller ones from White Velvet Paper.  Layer them and adhere them together.  I used the Multipurpose Adhesive for that.

Cut two medium size circle from the Layering Circles Framelits from Tranquil Tide card.  Adhere the snowflake on to the front of the one of the circles.  Loop a length of the Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon adhere behind the Tranquil Tide Circle.  Adhere the 2nd circle behind that so the ribbon is sandwiched between the circles.  That last circle behind is optional but I think it gives a neater finish so you don’t see the ribbon at the back.

—–

Have you liked these projects with the Snowflake Showcase??  Are these products something you would buy?

I did say a Week of projects.  Well … I am off to Stampin’ Up! Onstage this weekend.  SO, I am going to give you a bonus project tomorrow with these products to keep you going all weekend.  I will be back next week to tell you what I can.  I am so excited to be off to Melbourne.

Have a great weekend and if you are going to Onstage somewhere in the world have a great time.  By the way, these events are just for Demonstrators.  If you would love to go and you are not a Demonstrator then maybe you will just have to join right. It’s just another added bonus. 🙂

If you are in Australia you can join with me in my JEN’s INK team.  I have lots of hobby demonstrators if you just want the discount for yourself OR maybe you would like to get a little income and have some friends/family or new customers purchase from you. There is no hard selling as everyone loves the products. I show you the steps and help you whatever you want to achieve.  You can stop by my page at the top to ‘JOIN THE JEN’s INK TEAM’ and find out more.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for the bonus project.

10 FREE INK PADS!

I’ve talked about this before and you have probably read about it around the place but really, this is awesome value! 10 Free inkpads from any of the Colour Collections for Free. $117 in Value! On top of the $66 of free products in the kit that you get.  The deal – Pay $169 and get $235 of products, pay no shipping and then choose the inkpad collection you would like.  It is that easy.

OK, but I sense a little hesitation, perhaps a little fear?? What would you be signing yourself up for? I will tell you straight.  You are welcomed to the Stampin’ Up! family and if with me to my wonderful JEN’s INK team.  Yes, they are all wonderful and many of them are a part of Stampin’ Up! to enjoy the discount – Yes, a minimum 20% off your orders.  They don’t want to do parties or workshops.  They support their hobby.  Some of them might have a friend or 2 that orders from them.  And that is OK.  If you want to sell that’s OK too.

You stay as long as you want.  If you want to stay active as a Demonstrator you are required to submit $460 orders in per quarter.  And that won’t be due now until the end of September being the first full quarter. If you don’t fill the quota you can drop and keep all your lovely inks and other products.

You receive the new catalogues weeks before they are released and even pick up some free products along the way.  Then there is the fun training events held often.

If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to comment or email me at jghayward@yahoo.com.

Otherwise, get your order together and head to my website now -> HERE to join the wonderful JEN’s INK team.  Just scroll down a little on that page and click on the green tab.  I look forward to welcoming you to my team. No matter where you are in Australia.

LAST MONTH OF SALE-A-BRATION!

Can someone tell me what happened to February?? It seems like I blinked and it is gone.  I hope the rest of the year doesn’t go like that.

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.

Spend $90, Pick one of the Sale-A-Bration items.  (See the Catalogue link on the right).

 

host-2

Still time to book your own private Stamping event with me.  I have limited dates though.  You get an extra $40 of free products when the party order exceeds $400.  That is so easy to achieve with a few guests.

join-2

This is the most exciting I think.  I have had a number of people join my little team over the last 2 months. It’s so nice to have them whether they are hobby demonstrators (just want the discount) or if they want to hold classes/parties.  You choose!

Joining Stampin’ Up! means you save money.  First with your initial kit and then a minimum 20% discount every time you order.

TO JOIN – You pay only $169 (AUS).  You get $235 worth of products for that PLUS…..
Choose an additional 2 free stamp sets up to the value of $179.  AND there is no shipping to pay on all that! That’s $20 in itself!
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???

love-the-products_contact

Not only will you SAVE BIG TIME though there are so many other awesome reasons too.  Like lots of new friends (from all over the world), A great community of stampers within several different online groups,  Endless inspiration provided by Stampin’  Up! and other fellow demonstrators.

Not sure?? Visit my page HERE which will answer a few questions.   If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask.  If you are distance from me don’t let that worry you.  With technology the distance becomes so much closer.

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.

WHY I LOVE SHARING STAMPING??

Three posts in one day. What is happening!  Today I have been feeling a little reflective and I thought I would share some things with you.  I have been on this journey with Stampin’ Up! for 7 1/2 years now.  It has been a crazy time. You know I still don’t know all there is to stamping and cardmaking.  There is always fun new techniques and products to play around with.  Sometimes I wonder why am I doing this though.

I always come back to the conclusion that I love sharing stamping with others.  I love sharing my projects with you here on my blog.  (I do hope you like what I share – if you don’t well I guess you won’t come back will you!! LOL).  I love sharing my projects with my customers in my class room. It’s always a fun time and I have to say that sometimes they laugh at my expense.  Well hey, I am not perfect am I.  There are never any mistakes in stamping though right. 🙂  I love it though when new people I meet have that smile on their face that says “I did it!” after continually telling me that they are not crafty.

I love sharing projects I make with others too to give as gifts or to celebrate an occasion. That’s what it is all about. Sharing with others.  I am thankful to Stampin’ Up! for enabling me to do this.  Without Stampin’ Up!  I wouldn’t have fantastic products to use, I wouldn’t have team mates and wonderful friends here and around the world that I can share with.  I couldn’t afford to buy all these amazing products without the great discount I get or the little freebies (or rewards!) I get along the way.

I love being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator to be able to do all this.  I am thankful for all it has given me.  I am thankful for my customers (who I call my friends). Many who have been with me from those very early days. I am thankful for my friends I have made near and far.  I am thankful to my blog readers (MWAH!). I will be around for a little while still.

THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF MY LIFE!

I found this on the internet.  I hope they don’t mind me sharing but it sums it all up really.

not just about stamps
