Hi my Stampin’ Friends,
today I would like to talk to you about my Stampin’ Up! Journey which started in September 2015. I wanted to make a handmade Gift Box for some toiletries purchased for my friend’s Birthday. My husband told me to look on YouTube as there is always lots of help and inspiration there.
I watched quite a few tutorials, but one lady stood out as she was showcasing Stampin’ Up Crafting Products. I was enthralled with them so took a closer look on her website and it wasn’t too long before I placed an order.
My Stampin’ Up products arrived very quickly and when I saw the quality of them that was it, I WAS SOLD. I loved that everything co-ordinated from the colours of the cardstock, ink and the Designer Series Papers. Finally I could make a project where everything matched up.
Two months later I made the decision to join Sam at Pootles, as I loved the products and wanted a discount too. The joining offer was brilliant too, but what I loved the most was the fact that I was under NO OBLIGATION to purchase any more products unless I wanted to. If after a few months I decided Stampin’ Up was not for me I could leave with no penalties at all.
I was very nervous about it, but I took those final steps and clicked onto the join link. I chose my Stampin’ Up crafting products from the current Catalogues and added all my details step by step. That was it, I had joined.
In my email INBOX Stampin’ Up welcomed me into their crafting FAMILY. A few days later I received my Stampin’ Up Starter Kit. Inside my Box were all the products I had chosen plus EIGHT Stampin’ Up Catalogues and EIGHT Seasonal Catalogues, along with order forms should I wish to sell these products to friends and family.
When I joined in September 2015 I had no ideas to start my own business. I just wanted to craft in the comfort of my own home and enjoy my NEW HOBBY, and that would be perfectly acceptable. When I wanted to purchase new products from the Catalogue I received my discount and I was a very happy bunny!!!! Who doesn’t love getting a discount!
However, it wasn’t long before I decided I wanted to start my own business. I had a lot to learn but I was willing. I have come so far on my journey and am loving the wonderful friends I have made and the very kind comments I receive on a daily basis.
Now that Sale-a-Bration is about to come to an end in a few short days (ends 31st March 2017) that means I soon won’t be able to choose all the FREE PRODUCTS I have chosen over the past FOUR MONTHS. Yes, four months. As a Demonstrator I am able to purchase one month before Sale-a-Bration GOES LIVE. The Joining Offer at the moment is AMAZING.
Who wouldn’t want to choose up to £223 worth of Stampin’ Up Products for £99. What a bargain it is. (You choose £130 worth of products from the Main Catalogue or from the Spring/Summer Catalogue PLUS you also choose TWO FREE STAMP SETS of your choice. They can be the most expensive Stamp Sets in the Catalogue too!!!)
I have so enjoyed receiving all my FREE products and have THREE PACKS of the gorgeous GLIMMER PAPER. Well, it had to be done, as it is going to come in so handy for all my projects.
You probably already know by now that for every £45 you spend before P & P you can choose one FREE PRODUCT from the Sale-a-Bration Brochures. If you spend £90 you will choose TWO FREE PRODUCTS. £135 spend you choose THREE FREE PRODUCTS. What an OFFER!
My favourite FREE PRODUCTS during Sale-a-Bration have been Avant Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set, Delicate Details Photopolymer Stamp Set, 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack, Any Occasion Photopolymer Stamp Set, Hey Chick Stamp Set (this one is so cute), and the 6 x 6″ Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack. I have enjoyed playing with them.
I have now been a Demonstrator for eighteen months and I have never once regretted joining. I really did feel there must be a CATCH but there really wasn’t. It has enriched my life and I really love making Gift Boxes, Bags and Cards in the comfort of my own home and then sharing them with you all.
I have these questions for you:
1. Do you love paper crafting?
2. Do you enjoy crafting with quality products?
3. Do you love discounts?
4. Do you want to be just a hobby demonstrator, crafting in the comfort of your own home?
5. Would you love to go to a LIVE ONSTAGE events that are held in the U.K. or in Europe and meet other like-minded crafters?
6. Do you enjoy watching paper crafting video tutorials?
7. Do you love pinning paper crafting projects to your PINTEREST Boards?
8. Would you love to start up a business of your own?
If you answered yes to most of these questions then maybe joining Stampin’ Up is for you too.
There is now only TEN MORE DAYS to take up the Joining Offer during Sale-a-Bration. Of course, you can still join even after the 31st March, but the joining offer will be less. I really wouldn’t want anyone to miss out.
Thank you so much for listening to my story today. This is just the start of my journey and I can’t wait to see where it takes me over the next few years and beyond.
I shall be back on Friday with another video tutorial that I am really proud of. So I shall see you all again very soon.
Happy Crafting with love and best wishes from Sandra xx
Independent Stampin’ Up Demonstrator.
P.S. Please don’t forget that you can JOIN MY TEAM if you live in the U.K., France, Germany, Netherlands and Austria. I would be overjoyed to welcome you, and of course, you can definitely rely on me to help you in any way I can. That’s what I love to do.
SEE YOU VERY SOON Sandra xx
