Stampin' Up! Inspiration Project


Hello friends,

When I flip the calendar to August, it signals to me that the end of summer is nearing, schools are getting ready to start up, and all the fun traditions of fall are coming soon. I don't want to wish summer away too soon though, so I hope you enjoy the sunshine and some fun, creative, relaxation time this month!

August also means that it's time to shop with Bonus Days rewards earned in July. Yay - free stampin' goodies! This month is also a great time to consider joining my team. Being a demonstrator is fun, you get extra free products in your kit this month, and can pre-order from the 2019 Holiday Catalogue now! Find out more here or contact me to chat about the opportunity.

I'm sharing a gorgeous Gilded Designer Series Paper Technique with you for this month's tutorial. I can't wait to see what you create with it! I hope your August is off to a spectacular start!

~ Betty

Always Follow Your Art
ALWAYS FOLLOW YOUR ART
Did you know that you and your customers are artists? Yep, you are. Every card you make is a beautiful masterpiece with love and meaning behind it. And we think you’re amazing for it!
There are so many ways to express yourself through art, and we here at Stampin’ Up! applaud all forms of self-expression. That’s why we have the Follow Your Art Suite: made just for your inner artist. The stamps, dies, embellishments (with felt accents!), and super fun designer series paper all pay tribute to the ways to create a masterpiece; you won’t want to stop crafting! The suite even comes with Mini Shipping Boxes so you can decorate them with the embossed buttons pattern that you can use for gift boxes at parties, just like we did in the sample above. Don’t forget to share these samples, and your cards, with every artist you know!
Everything you love about crafting, making, and creating all in a cute suite designed to inspire you—and your customers—to follow your art!

Host a Party with Stampin'Up!

HOW IT WORKS

STEP 1: CONTACT A DEMONSTRATOR
They will guide you through your creative crafting experience.
Already know a demonstrator? Connect with them here.
Still looking? Find one near you here.
Look for Betty Manghi if you want to have me help you. Keep searching if you know another demonstrator or want someone close to you.
I live in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada
STEP 2: SET A DATE AND MAKE A PLAN
Want a party at your place where you and your friends each make a card? Or maybe you’d rather put together a fun kit. Your demonstrator will walk you through the options and then create your party plan!
STEP 3: INVITE YOUR FRIENDS
Use postcards, social media, email, calls, or texts—invite your friends and tell them to get ready for a great time. Your demonstrator can help you figure out how to get the word out and what to say.
STEP 4: IT’S PARTY TIME! ENJOY YOURSELF
Enjoy being with your friends and unwinding as you get creative and see your finished craft project. You and your friends will also get the chance to buy your favorite Stampin’ Up! products to keep the party going!
STEP 5: GET SPOILED AND ENJOY YOUR REWARDS
As a host you can earn free products, get discounts, and order exclusive products (only available for our hosts) with our Stampin’ Rewards program. For example, if your party sales are $200, you’ll have $20 to spend on whatever you’d like! It’s our way of saying thank you!
STEP 6: KEEP CRAFTING
Plan another time to host a party for more fun with friends and free products. Or if you want to enjoy even more benefits, purchase a Starter Kit to sign up as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator—you can even use your Stampin’ Rewards to help purchase your kit.
