It's get & go time as a paper crafter as we enter the season of preparing for the holidays.  This is one of the busiest times of the year for me as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and I love it!  It's so much fun creating and sharing for the holidays.

Do you love to create and share your projects with others?  Yes?

Have you ever thought about starting your own business?  It's the perfect time to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator during this busy time.
It's so much fun helping others discover and expand their creativity in planning and enjoying the holiday season.

If you've ever thought about becoming part of Stampin' Up!, you'll want to take a look at this September special.
The Stampin' Up! Get & Go promotion is in full swing.
In addition to the regular starter kit for ($99 for $125 in products) you will also receive enough cardstock pieces to make 16 cards, a pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the So Much Love stamp set, and the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set—all so you can share your love of cardmaking with friends and family!

Stars Team Member Testimonial

Why I Continue to Be Member of the Stars Team
Kristen Martin

It’s never been a question for me. I have the best supporting team any crafter would need. I’ve been a hobby demonstrator for most of my time, but I’ve also learned that when the time is right my business will blossom.

Lisa has supported me no matter what my status is. Any questions I’ve had, she's always guided me to solve it. Lisa has given me lots of opportunities to SHINE as a crafter and share many projects. Over the 10 years we have grown close and I consider her a friend. I’m super grateful for the friendships I’ve made being a STAR!

It's Get & Go time with Stampin' Up!  Join us!

What I Am Missing Most

Screenshot_2020-07-20 Lisa Brown ( inkandinspirations) • Instagram photos and videosThroughout the months since this past March, what we've missed most are these three precious granddaughters. 

Before you ask...yes, Jackie and I are still being very cautious since I have a heart condition and we now have my 90 year old dad here with us.  One of our daughters and her husband are both medical professionals.  She is a trauma/ER nurse and he, a nurse anesthetist, so they are both in the thick of it all, so to speak.  We are blessed and grateful for their service and their knowledge.  Our youngest daughter and her husband work in ministry; he a pastor of a church in north Texas. We look to all of them for guidance and we wait in hope.

I've talked to many of you who are also in this same situation.  How thankful we are for technology with FaceTime, video chat, and Zoom.  At least this youngest little sweetheart will recognize me when I get to hug and hold her again.

Screenshot_2020-07-20 Lisa Brown ( inkandinspirations) • Instagram photos and videos(1)Our two girls were able to get their families together this past weekend and look how sweet these cousins are playing together.  This makes my heart so happy!  Don't you just love candid shots like this?

Although we are not all together, these captured moments are priceless.  I see some memory keeping/scrapbooking pages forthcoming with these photos!

I am thankful to find joy in these moments that these our girls and their families share.   And, I know in my heart that the Lord is working on us and through us in all of this.  In Him is our hope.

I pray that your days may bring you joy and that hope fill your hearts.

May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all!

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.
