Your Business ~ Your Way

Starting a Stamping Business – Your Way
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be your own boss? To do something that you love while making money at the same time? Well, imagine a job where you …
– can work alongside of your family and other activities.
  can earn anywhere from extra money to a part-time or even a full-time income.
  set your own goals.
  get recognized for your hard work and accomplishments.
  can get started right away … you don’t need experience or a degree.
On top of that, you have access to lots of training opportunities – webinars, online videos, company events, and a monthly magazine to name just a few. Sounds like a dream job, doesn’t it? It’s actually very real … when you’re a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  You get to have your own business with the support and backing of the Stampin’ Up! company and their quality products.

There are many excellent reasons to be a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, but I can tell you that the BEST reason is that you make life-long friends! This photo is from SU! Convention last July with Sally, Sue and Kristi…some of my dearest friends in the world whom I would never have met with Stampin’ Up!

Of course, there are a million other reasons to join my Stampin’ family, but now through March 31, there are 2 excellent motivations:

Loni’s Convention Report

Sitting in the park at the library today (something good that has come from no internet at the house for the summer) enjoying music from a live band and the beautiful weather! Happily, I can also upload a few pictures from Convention and give you my report (finally!)

The theme at Stampin’ Up! this year is “Come GROW with Us” and it was carried through our convention, too. This was the stage and the colors changed each day:

We started with High-Hat Fashion at the Kick-Off Party: 
This stamper was a little bit country:
AND a little bit city:
We loved the “Product Park” where our products were beautifully showcased like this: 
 and where we learned from some talented demonstrators fun ways to use them, too:
The next morning, the fun begins with swapping! Here is Sue trading the cards we helped her finish at midnight the night before:
Opening theme song performers:

Then it was 3 days full of non-stop fun:

The good news for you is that YOU can be there with us next year when you join my Stampin’ Family this month for only $99…and here is what you get:

Just go to my website and click “Join the Fun”…and my recruit password is stampwithme 🙂 I’d love to have you come to convention 2012 in Salt Lake City with me!

Create Perfect Pennants with a Punch!

My stampin’ friends tell me all the time how much they love coordinating products (like ribbon that matches their ink or card stock) and PUNCHES are a big hit: like the new Pennant Punch that coordinates with the new Pennant Parade stamp set! No worries about cutting out your stamped images by hand…just PUNCH ’em! Now if you love the ease of punches, perhaps collecting them at a discount as a demonstrator would appeal to you…and the $99 kit through July 31st is a great opportunity to get started. My password to join through my website is stampwithme.

Of course, you can always host a party and get your crafting supplies free or at a discount, too. And if you just want to order, make sure you go through my website to get PREFERRED pricing.

When I am “connected” again, I’ll share the card I made with the Pennants/Punch to swap at convention…this technology drought is harder than I expected 🙂

A Milestone Reached

WOW! I’m so very grateful right now…thanks to *YOU* (my dear, wonderful friends and customers!) I reached $200,000 in career sales with Stampin’ Up! this week!!! It took me about 12 years to reach the first $100K and just 7 years to exceed this milestone. And guess what? I get a $2,000 bonus!! I just love what I do 🙂

Now I can’t decide what to spend it on…a vacation with my husband? A new dining room set? A family trip? (Note that it’s a VACATION when I go with my sweetheart and a TRIP if we take the kids: A bit of wisdom my father taught me)

So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for letting me be your creative coach and for thinking of me when you need supplies for scrapping, stamping, home decor, gifts and more. I recognize your loyalty (and God’s hands) in this great blessing and want you to know I am humbled and grateful. I wish I could send you ALL a card, but this will have to do:

{Card created by Debbie Greuser…one of the dear demonstrators in my Stitched Stampers family}

Convention Highlights!

It was another fabulous Stampin’ Up! Convention in Salt Lake City last week! Here are a few of my favorite things from Convention! Let’s start with the Late Night Stampers pre-convention events (stamp camps, shoebox swaps and reunion party):

Sherrill Graff is my SU! “Mom” (top right, at left)~ a wonderfully warm and generous person who spends months planning these incredible pre-convention events, letting us extend the party:) 
I am privileged to be an instructor at the Late Night Stampers Reunion Party, so if you come back on tomorrow, I’ll share the instructions and pictures of my project: a cupcake box!
On check-in day, Sue, Murlynn and I drove to the Stampin’ Up! Riverton office to check out the Legacy room’s makeover:
And if you think that is cute, you should have seen the “Sweet Shop” they had set up at convention…who knew your mouth could water at paper confections?
 
Of course, there were Make-n-Takes using the free stamps we got at check-in:
Entertainment on Awards Night by country music singer Charlie Jenkins 
(check out his guitar decorated in Designer Series Paper from SU!):
A “Flower Power Party” with everything from hula-hoops to Twister (all in new Stampin’ Up! colors):
Thousands of stamped samples and demonstrations:
And best of all, friends/fun/laughter/wonderful times sharing what we love together:
You can join the fun next year in Salt Lake City when you join my Stampin’ Family!
