Just another Manic Monday

Filed under: Stamping — Tags: , , — maggie mathern @ 9:06 am

The best plans of mice and men as they say…yep…my day.  I will NOT be deterred though.  Here it is 10 am and I am just going to have my shower and get dressed for the day.  I swear technology is all consuming of time LOL.  After my shower I am taking the phone off the hook and creating the day away…shhhhh…don’t tell anyone or that might not happen either *rolling eyes*.  This happens so often in our lives.  I worked my butt of yesterday so I could have today free…for ME!!!  (well…I still have my butt but you know what I mean)

Ok, off to have said shower and then into my room.  Time to create a sign for my door I think 🙂 and get cracking on some Christmas Cards..and it is time I started that Cruise album I have promised myself to do for years.  I went on TSS Fairstar in January 1990…it was a blast.  Need to find the box of pics/memorabilia.  I had a huge organising marathon a few years back to make the scrapbooking easier, but have not gotten around to it.

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.
