$99 Mini Starter Kit Promotion

Yowza, From June 1-30 you can become a demonstrator for just $99.00 when you purchase a special Mini Starter Kit. This limited-time kit contains over $180.00 of Stampin' UP! products and business supplies. None of the products in the Mini Starter Kit are retiring this year; plus new recruits will get a box of 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogs in July. Detail will be available from Stampin' UP! on June 1st. By signing up in June you will have new products to hit the ground running in July when the new catalog is unveiled to everyone.
This is a really good plan for those of you that already have a lot of products and don't want lots of duplication........ Call me if you are interested and I will supply you with all the information. I would love to have you be a part of my downline; we have a fabulous group of stampers with lots of ideas, demonstrations and most of all LOTS of fun and laughs.
DON'T FORGET.... being a demonstrator qualifies you to a 20% discount right off the top; purchase "new" items before anyone else; qualify for Convention and "Incentive Trips" and lots more.
Our fantastic group gets together once a month at one of our homes. We make three make & takes that are prepared by volunteers, we have lots of demonstrations using new products and techniques and ALWAYS lots of yummy food. I am going to show you all of the make and takes we did in May......... Drum Roll, PLEASE!!!!!! This first card is so fun and cute; it uses the
Vintage Vogue stamp set and with a little cutting and piecing it turned out fabulous. Isn't this a cute design???
The next item is a tag that was cut using the Big Shot and the Bigz Two Tags die. The tag was then covered with the Island Oasis designer series paper as shown on page 27 of the new Summer Mini catalog. The big flower is from the Fancy Flower punch and the leaves and small flower from the Bigz Island Floral Die also on page 27 of the Summer Mini catalog. Did you notice the cute flower brad in the center??? You can find that in the 2009/2010 Idea Book and Calendar on page 179. The saying on the back is from one of the stamps in the new Favorite Thoughts stamp set shown on page 19 of the Summer Mini Catalog. I think this set is a MUST-HAVE for ALL women..... it says it all!!!! Then we inserted one of the Jumbo Eyelets in the hole and threaded in a piece of So Saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.
The third item is using a piece from the new On Board Books "Briefcase" shown on page 23 of the Summer Mini Catalog. There are 8 briefcase pieces that come with a couple of metal rings to hold together as a book, or you can also just use one piece as a card or gift for someone. the book is only $4.95 and there are so many options using this. We covered the front and back using the new Travel Journal designer series paper on page 23 of the Summer Mini and stamped the images on the front with Night of Navy CRAFT ink (which is a pigment ink and dries slowly, making it perfect for embossing). After we stamped the images in ink, we applied Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. The stamp set is "Sentimental Journey" on page 22 of the Summer Mini. As I looked at my picture I noticed that what we used as a sample had Night of Navy sponged on the edges..... I chose not to do that at the meeting because we were using Craft Ink and I didn't want it to smudge and smear while I carried it around; my plan was to do that when I got home..... I have now done that with mine, but the picture doesn't show it. You can also see we used a piece of the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware for a greeting and did you notice the cute little tag hanging from the handle? That's also in the Summer Mini Catalog on page 15. The paper inside is sort of a "gold" color which is really vintage looking; which is good because they are called "Mini Vintage Tags" LOL.
These are just a few samples of what we actually "made". I took pictures of the demonstrations, but my pictures aren't very good. I'll show you the ones that turned out tomorrow.
I hope all of you have a Wonderful Memorial Day weekend and keep safe.
