The Project Share Project - Sept 23rd

Hi everyone,

Welcome to another Thursday and the Project Share Project where I get to showcase projects made by some of my crafty friends. Today I have chosen three wonderful projects for you, beginning with Verity of Inky Butterfly who has made this lovely card using the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set for a colour challenge. She has reminded me that I haven't used my set recently - I must get it inked up soon.   


Hop over to Verity's blog to see the details about her card by CLICKING HERE.

Next is Heather of Stamp with Nellie. Heather has used the Sweet Symmetry DSP and the Playful Alphabet dies to create these great Post It note covers. 


Pop over to Heather's blog to read how she made by CLICKING HERE.

And last for today is Gez. Gez has made this lovely card using the FREE Saleabration Be Dazzling paper. In real life it really sparkles!


You can read all about Gez's project over on her blog by CLICKING

And that is another Project Share complete. I can't believe how quickly these weeks come round! Do join me again next Thursday for more inspiration from these wonderful ladies!

#17 Card Making for Beginners - Series 2 - another Celebrate with Flowers card

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Have you missed me the past couple of days? I have had a few days away on holiday in York with my other half, and although I managed to schedule a few posts before we left, in the end I ran out of time. 

But I am here today with another post in my Card Making for Beginners series, to show you how beautiful handmade cards can be made by anyone, really easily and with just a few resources. 


As you can see, today's card uses a few techniques I have showed before either in this series or the previous one - namely  
#simplestamping, heat embossing and some layering (or matting).

This stamp set - Celebrate with Flowers - really is the set that keeps on giving. It is so versatile with so many different ways the stamped images can be used. 


 

I used one of the small flowers to build up my background in a selection of bright colours - Granny Apple Green, Polished Pink, Mango Melody, Gorgeous Grape and Bermuda Bay.


The sentiment is from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set although I have cut that stamp up a bit! It can easily be put together again on a clear block if I need to!


I heat embossed the sentiment in gold and then layered it on matts of Bermuda Bay and Polished Pink.

Of course I have made a video tutorial for you - this time I changed the colours and heat embossed in silver.




To see my video you can watch by CLICKING HERE or on the image below.

Hope you enjoyed that. Here are both cards together.



Do join me again next Tuesday for more Card Making for Beginners.

Bye for now, back soon,

13 more days of Saleabration! Don't miss our great joining offer.

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. Today I want to remind you about one of the great offers that we have for Saleabration - but only for another 13 days. 
 




Have you ever thought about joining Stampin' Up? 

The joining offer is always one of the best bargains in the whole catalogue - choose £130 of any products of your choice to make up your Starter Kit and pay only £99 - and get FREE shipping too. But
during Saleabration, we always have an extra incentive to join and this one is one of the best I've seen. Buy the Starter Kit for, as I say, only £99 and you can add your choice of one of 12 selected bundles from the Mini Catalogue absolutely FREE. That means you could get over £180 of product for only £99. What are you waiting for? Once you have signed up you will then receive a discount of at least 20% on all future orders. 
I know that graphic is not easy to see so have added all the bundles you can choose from in the product list at the bottom of this post. 

If you need any more information about joining Stampin' Up! please get in touch. Here are the answers to some of the questions I get asked most frequently 

Who can join?
Anyone, as long as you are over 18 years of age, and live in the UK, France, Germany, The Netherlands or Austria

Do I have to demonstrate?
Absolutely not. You are welcome to join as a “hobby demo”. This means you just buy for yourself and take advantage of the discount. The majority of my team members are "hobby demos". They started out as customers but realised the joining offer was too good to miss!

However if you wish to demonstrate and run a business, I will be there every step of the way to support you. There will be no pressure from me as your upline or from Stampin’ Up! but if you decide you want to start a class or two or sell to friends or customers you can and I am here to support you as much as you need.  You are in charge and you set your own targets and goals. It is so easy to share what you are passionate about and Stampin’ Up! offers some great incentives to get you sharing and earning so there is lots of scope to earn, promote and be rewarded simply by sharing what you love and the fantastic products.

What is the quarterly minimum?
To remain a demo, the quarterly minimum sales target is approx. £275 (300 CSV).   That equates to less than £90 a month (and that is before your discount is applied!Whenever sales are mentioned in the Compensation Plan, they won’t be shown in local currency.  In order to make our compensation plan applicable to all markets, regardless of currency, we use a common measurement: Commissionable Sales Volume or CSV.
Your first quarterly minimum needs to be reached at the end of a full quarter and if you join part way through a quarter you will be given till the end of the next quarter to reach your minimum. Quarters are as follows Jan-Mar, Apr-Jun, Jul-Sept, Oct-Dec. So if you join before the end of September you will have until the end of December to meet your first minimums. If you don't meet them, nothing will happen. You will just drop as a demonstrator and can just return to being a customer - but of course you get to keep your starter kit!

What discounts do I get?
On all orders placed you receive 20% discount off the net product total (or 21% discount off if you are in the Netherlands). You can earn more commission the more sales you make in a month and any extra commission payments are calculated at the end of the month and paid direct in the bank account of your choice mid-way through the following month. You also get the chance to pre-order products a month earlier than the general release as well as very generous offers and discounts including hostess benefits on all eligible orders.
When you sign up as a demo, you receive the title of Bronze.  As you build your business, you can advance to subsequent titles and if/when you reach the next title of Bronze Elite you will receive 25% discount on your future orders/sales.

What training/support will I receive?
I will be available to help you as little or as much as you need. In addition you will be able to access events and training run by my uplines – this includes training events, crafting weekends, get togethers and as much support as you need. There is also lots of info shared on the dedicated demonstrator website.

Should I choose a local demo as my upline?
You need to make the right choice for you as once you sign up you are unable to change your team leader without resigning and rejoining 3 months later. Everyone is different and I would encourage you to do your research, don’t just look on-line - pick up the phone and talk to the demo direct. Your team leader does not necessarily need to be local to you and you need to consider what it is that is most important to you. I have team members from all over the UK and I would love to add you to them.

Please get in touch if you need further assistance or have more questions.  I really hope to welcome you to my team very very soon!
