In the picture below, you can see the angle cut and the pocket that holds the layered piece for the sentiment.  You can see the how-to in the video on this post. (Begin at 12:16)

Why I Joined Stampin' Up!

 

Why-i-joined

It was about 16 years ago when I attended my first Stampin' Up! event party.  I have to admit that I was reluctant to go.  I was an avid scrapbooker and had everything I needed.  There wasn't a need for rubber stamps in my stash.  
All that changed with the first time I put ink to stamp to paper.  Magic! And, I found that I could express my creativity with a beautiful hand-stamped card that took a few minutes vs. a scrapbooking layout that might take me hours.  Don't get me wrong, I still love to do memory keeping but it is so much easier with the coordination of products in the Stampin' Up! line and yes, rubber stamps are awesome to use, too.
I placed an order that night...I was hooked!
I attended another workshop about a month later and the demonstrator informed us about a Starter Kit special.  I wondered...what the heck was a Starter Kit? She informed me that it was the kit that could be purchased to join the Stampin' Up! family. I could get a lot of product for less plus get discounts on the product any time that I ordered with no obligation to hold workshops or sell.  Sounded good to me because my wish list was LONG!  
I was so excited to receive my kit and began making all of my cards and have not purchased a greeting card since!  Then, one day, my team leader (the demonstrator that I signed under) asked me to do a party for a mutual friend to help her out.  I was so reluctant and nervous!  But, I did it and loved it! I had been teaching in public education for 25 years and that was exactly what I was doing with those Stampin' Up! products...teaching and loving it!
While I had joined for the discount, I discovered that I loved sharing it with others, too! Who knew that 15+ years later, I would still be loving and sharing it!
All this is to say that anyone can be part of Stampin' Up! ...Whether for the discount, to be part of an awesome community, to make a little extra money, or to have a small business, there is a fit for you!  And, if you'd like to remain a customer, that's fine, too! 

If you purchase your Starter Kit through me, you will be included in fun online activities with other demonstrators on the Ink and Inspirations Stars team in the U.S.

  • Access our private Facebook Group exclusively for members of the Ink and Inspirations Stars with news, updates, and sharing of ideas. 
  •  Online Video Conference Team Meetings
  •  Monthly creative challenges with prize drawings. 
  • Weekly team emails/posts with information and updates.
  •  One-on-one calls with you as needed.

Questions? If you have questions, please email me at lisa@inkandinspirations.com and I will promptly reply.
