Single Marker Promotion extended

Filed under: Stampin' Up! — Tags: , — maggie mathern @ 2:19 pm

How exciting is this?  SU have extended the offer to purchase individual markers until December 14th, 2008.  If you still haven’t put your order in with me for these you still have time.  It has been great for me as a demonstrator as I could replace a few damaged ones.  As a customer, you have the benefit of being able to pick and choose your favourite colours without having to purchase the complete set or colour family.

till next time

Sthe wheel that is.  Yesterday I told you about the Free Wheelin’ Promotion for September.  I made a few cards and promptly spilt ink all over them.  Urgh!  So I have just recreated one for now.  This is a card just using the All About Christmas wheel.  You can get this wheel for FREE with the purchase of the Merry Merry stamp set for $45.95…that is a saving of $15.95, a real bonus!

Free Wheelin’ in September

No, I am not about to go doing burnouts on the roads LOL.  This is the new promotion for Stampin’ Up! for September 2008.  Read all about it here.

Purchase any of the six stamp sets in the promotion and receive the matching Jumbo wheel FREE!!!  How good is that?  Stampin’ Around Wheels are a great way to enhance your projects.  In just minutes you can have a card, envelope and gift wrapping to match.  Or maybe you would like to make your own stationery. The possibilities are endless!!!

I will upload a few pics later.  Have to go and run a few errands before heading off to work.  Be back later today or tomorrow morning.

Keep Smiling and Stamping,

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.
