Do you like it?

You may have never stamped, but want to start OR just beginning to stamp and appreciate a good deal. The starter kit contains everything for someone who has never stamped or a beginner stamper could need. You will receive over $300 in Stampin’ Up! supplies at 40% off!, with no shipping charges (local taxes do apply).

You will also get 30% OFF your first Stampin’ Up! order as a demonstrator and 20% OFF every future purchase as an active demonstrator. There are no further requirements… Once you purchase the starter kit, everything is yours to keep. If you want to remain active as a demonstrator, however, simply sell (or purchase yourself) $300.00 in product each quarter.

Do you love it?

You truly enjoy stamping and love a deal (20% OFF each purchase). Your hobby is maintained while receiving a great discount. You might sell to family, friends, and purchase items for yourself to keep yourself active as a demonstrator. This way you get a great discount on quality stamping products and get to do what you love.

Do you want more?

As a career demonstrator, you’ll purchase Stampin’ Up! products at a discount, hold workshops, possibly maintain a website, and on top of everything else, earn income from your sales.

The list of benefits goes on and on… here are just a few:

  • Be the first to see the new Stampin’ Up! catalogs
  • Pre-order products not yet released
  • Benefit from customer promotions AND receive your 20% discount
What is the catch?

Other than a totally addictive hobby, it’s pretty easy. Signing up to be a demonstrator? 20 minutes. Online. And you get your password to go onto the Demonstrator Only Website right away while you wait for your kit to arrive in a week to 10 days.

What if I decide to not place any orders and just enjoy my kit?

Stampin ‘Up will just drop you after your quarter is up. No penalties, nothing to give back...

How much do I have to order to stay active?

$300 retail. This Stampin’ Up quarter runs Jan, Feb, March. So if you sign up Feb 1st, you would get your first quarter free of minimums. Apr-May-June is the next quarter so you would have to your $300 in orders by the end of June. It can be ALL at once, or in smaller orders. With just your own orders or friends adding to it. You can be your own hostess, so with your 20% off as a demonstrator, the $300 goes down to $240.00 but then add back in 10% shipping and then tax. BUT as your own hostess, you can get a free hostess set and $25.00 free merch.


This is why some people sign up if they have a huge wish list or want something big like the BIG SHOT: You get 30% (instead of 20%) off your first order over $150.00 if you place it within 45 days of signing up. Be your own hostess + get a big discount = no brainer.

I am here to answer any questions you have about becoming a demonstrator or about Stampin’ Up! in general.

I would love to have you as part of my team and part of the Stampin’ Up! family.

Want a head start? You can sign up instantly by visiting my Stampin' Up! business website OR take your time and download the paperwork below.

Hardware & Ribbon Club...Wanna Join??

12 new ribbons were being released in the catalog today! I am also offering a Ribbon Club. This club will allow you to sample these 12 new ribbons for only $17! If you were to purchase all of these separately the cost would be almost $70, plus tax and shipping. This club lets you sample all of the new ribbon at a fantastic price.

Ribbon Club - View the ribbons online here.

You will get a sampling of 12 yards of ribbon. The ribbon will include:

  • 1 yard Organza White ribbon
  • 1 yard striped Old Olive ribbon
  • 1 yard striped Pretty in Pink Ribbon
  • 1 yard striped So Saffron ribbon
  • 1 yard Chocolate Chip polka dot ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals

  • 1 yard Riding Hood Red ribbon from Dress Up Ribbon Originals

Each club will have 8 people who will receive 12 yards of ribbon as detailed above. When the club fills I will start a 2nd club. The first order will be placed the 1st week of February. It will take about 2 weeks from the date of order for your order to be shipped to you. The ribbons can be viewed on pages 178 and 179 of the new catalog.

Check out Stampin' Up!'s new hardware on pages 174-176. There are new Corduroy Buttons, Jumbo Brads, Library Clips and Flower Assortment brads. To purchase all of these items on your own would cost approximately $104, plus tax and shipping for full packages. I am starting a club where you can sample all of these items! The cost with shipping to you is $20.

You will receive a 30 piece sampler kit containing the following items:

  • 3 Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Buttons
  • 3 Chocolate Chip Corduroy Buttons

  • 3 Summer Sun Corduroy Buttons

All of these items can be viewed online on pages 174 - 176 of the new 2009 Spring-Summer Catalog. The clubs will consist of 8 members. When a club fills I will place the order for that club and then start a new club of 8 members. The first order will be placed the first week of February (if the club is full). It will take approximately 2 weeks from the time the order was placed to ship to you.

Marker Club - still 1 more spot....

Yes, it's that time of year again. Time to join a club that gives you a fantastic assortment of products and some extra goodies too!

Everyone who joins the club in January (so that payment can be made before the end of January and the first order submitted in the first week of February) will receive a Sale-A-Bration product of their choice in addition to all of the other marker club benefits. That means that for four monthly payments of $44.95 (including all tax and shipping) each member will receive:

1) 48 Stampin' Write Markers in Stampin' Up!'s 48 exclusive permanent colors (one 12 marker color family per month)
2) A handy carrying case specifically designed to organize and optimally store the markers horizontally to keep both tips evenly inked (in the fourth month).
3) A pack of assorted 8.5x11" card stock in all four permanent Stampin' Up! color families (1 color family per month to coordinate with that month's markers)
4) A pack of assorted 8.5x11" neutrals card stock (in the fourth month)
5) A Level 1 hostess set of the member's choice (in the fourth month); and
6) A choice of sale-a-bration products (in the fourth month)

Each club participant needs to let me know his or her choice of the level 1 hostess set and Sale-A- Bration product at the outset of the club.

All club payments are due before the last day of the month so that orders can be submitted in the beginning of the following month.

The family of markers and coordinating card stock will be available for pick-up or will be mailed out by the middle of the month following the payment and, as mentioned above, the last month of the club everyone will receive their caddy, hostess set, Sale-A- Bration product and neutrals card stock in addition to their last color family of markers and coordinating card stock.

Monthly installments will be mailed to long-distance club members via priority mail.

There will never be a better time to join a marker club, contact me today and secure your spot, before they are all filled.

They no longer have any inventory of the Refill Blades, and they are now unavailable for order. SU will continue to sell the Coluzzle Starter Set until inventory has been depleted.

One of the latest products Stampin' Up ! is offering is the Circle Scissor Plus. A new cutter that cuts circles from 1" to 6" in size in 1/8" increments...all with ONLY ONE TOOL!
