Here's the outside and how the boxes were decorated with elements from inside the kit.

No photo description available.

The label and the die cut adhesive stickers were included in the kit for decorating the box for gift giving.

Here's the inside of one of the boxes.

Beautiful World Fourth of July Home Decór and Project Giveaway

IMG_3660

We will be "celebrating" the Fourth of July this weekend so here is a fun home decor paper crafting project for you to make!

Although Mr. Brown and I are not having visitors to the cabin this year, it's still important to us to have some decór out for the different seasons and celebrations.  We truly believe that we can find joy in each day and this is one little way to do that! And, these red, white, and blue decor items are good to go from Memorial Day in May to Labor Day in September!

This framed piece was the project for my Facebook Live this past Saturday.  Saturday morning lives have not been playing nicely (broadcast interruptions and freezing screens) so it's better for me to be prepared ahead of time with a pre-recorded video so that's what you will see here today.

FAQs on Becoming A Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

FAQ.facebook-photo

When I speak with someone about the Stampin' Up! business opportunity, the How Much? and What If? questions are usually part of the conversation.

  1. How much does it cost to join Stampin' Up!?
    The Starter Kit is $99 plus your applicable sales tax... shipping is free.
    That's it.

  2. How much do you get in the Starter Kit?
    Included in the Starter Kit are Stampin' Up! products of your choosing totaling up to $125.  (During Sale-A-Bration 2014, you get to choose an additional $25 pushing that total up to $150)
    The kit also includes a business supply pack with order forms, catalogs, etc. valued at $65.

  3.  How much do you have to sell to be a demonstrator?
    Good question!  Minimum sales requirement is $300 a quarter.  The $300 includes what you purchase for yourself plus what others purchase from you.

    Think about it this way...if you have two parties/workshops at $150 in sales  every three months (a quarter), you'll meet your minimum requirement in sales.

  4. What if I don't make the $300 in sales?

    First,as your upline, I will contact you to answer questions or offer suggestions. 
    If you are under your $300 at the end of the quarter, you'll go into Pending Status for one month.  During the month, you'll have the opportunity to make up the difference for what you lacked in the $300 total for the previous quarter. 
    ...So say you made $250 in sales for the quarter- you'll need to have at least $50 in sales during the first month of the next quarter. If you exceed that $50 in that first month, it will go toward the $300 for that quarter. 

  5. What if I am unable to make up sales needed while in Pending Status that first month?

    Then at the month's end, you will no longer have demonstrator status.  That's all that happens.  You do not have return Starter Kit, Stampin' Up! does not call, there is no hassle. Period.


  6. What if I'm a beginning stamper and don't know everything about stamping and paper crafting?

    Honey, no one knows EVERYTHING...we all start somewhere!  I had been stamping for a few weeks when I signed up. True story.


    These are just a few of the questions I receive but are all EXCELLENT questions and I love answering them.

So, if you have been thinking about joining Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator...ask away?  I will be happy to discuss it with you.

This month, June 2020, there is a special from Stampin' Up! when you sign up as a demonstrator.  In addition to the $125 in product, you will be able to choose a current bundle for FREE from the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  This can be a stamp set and punch bundle or stamp set and die bundle.  You can see all the current bundles HERE.

And, if you've read this far, I KNOW you've thought about it and I would love to mentor you gently as you make your demonstrator-ship what YOU want it to be!

Let's get started, shall we?  Questions, anyone?

E-mail me today and let's talk about you as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!


Make A Game Night Score Pad with Stampin' Up! Game On

IMG_3628

Game Nights are a lot of fun and here is a project idea to jazz it up a bit! 

Our family loves to play games...board games, card games, dice games...all the things!  More times than not, we are scrambling for a note pad for keeping score.  So why not dress one up a bit and keep it on hand for those special family times.

Here's a video tutorial so you can see how easy it is to put one together.  You can get these little 8 x 5 notepads at most office supply stores. Now, let's get to it so you can start creating.

Lisa's Inklings:

Here is the list of Stampin' Up! products that were used in this video.  Keep in mind that you could re-create the project with a different stamp set and different supplies and it would make a nice little gift.  Here's a different version from way back!

You can just click on the links below to shop in my online Stampin' Up! store.  When you shop with me, it enables me to continue to bring free videos and content to you weekly and I am so appreciative.  I will be honored to serve as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Product List

Here's a look at the inside.  As you saw in the video, it's so easy to add that little strip of designer paper to the note pad.  And, it makes a big difference for the overall look!

IMG_3629 2Thanks for stopping by for this Game Night idea and if you're ready to make one for yourself, shop now and gather those supplies to dress up those note pads.
