Hubby’s Birthday

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — maggie mathern @ 1:44 pm

My husband Shane had a birthday recently as well.  Ok, so it was before mine and I am running late.  What else is new these days, right?  I would like to share the card I made for him just last night.  Why is it you find that inspiration strikes at the most inopportune times?  I should of been tucked up in bed asleep, but instead I was in my craft room in my element, surrounded by supplies I had pulled out from various sources.  Oh that looks good, no, maybe this?  You get the drift.  By the time I finished and presented hubby with his card, it was after 2 am when I got to bed.  That’s ok, but I definitely suffer for it the next day LOL

Stampin’ Up! New Demonstrator Special

Filed under: Stampin' Up! — Tags: , , , , , , , — maggie mathern @ 12:57 am

From now until August 15th, Stampin’ Up! have a new promotion offering you an opportunity to start your own business for $25 off the normal price.  The starter kit which normally costs $324, is only $299.  What other business can you think of that has such a low outlay to get started?   This is a fantastic saving, of over 40% as the kit contains over $560 worth of product in it. The best thing is that you can customise the kit to suit yourself by choosing what stamps, inks and cardstock colours you prefer.

There are many benefits to joining at this time of the year.  Some of these include:

  • It is the start of a new quarter, so you have until the end of the year to make your first sales quota 
  • It is currently the preorder period for the Spring Mini Catalogue, so as a demonstrator you get to order first.
  • A good time to introduce SU to your family and friends as Christmas is fast approaching and they will be able to make their own cards and gifts.
  • Stampin’ Up! Regional training will be held later this year
  • I have monthly team meetings where we have fun, share ideas and encourage each other.
  • Stampin’ Up! produce a wonderful newsletter called Impressions which we receive in the mail each month.

I joined Stampin’ Up! in October 2006 and have had the time of my life meeting new people and sharing my love of papercrafts.   The Statement of the Heart truly reflects my experience and the soul of the company.

“To love what we do and share what we love,

as we help others enjoy creativity

and worthwhile accomplishments,

in this we make a difference.”

– Stampin’ Up! Statement of the Heart.

If you are interested in starting a business that is fun and flexible, please contact me and I will send you out an information pack, which includes a DVD or we could get together over coffee and have a chat.  I would love to welcome you to my team Innovative Designs, a group of lovely ladies whom are both stampers and scrapbookers.
