How do I get them?

As a demonstrator you can order your set now with your demonstrator discount. If you are not a demonstrator yet, you can purchase these in the starter kit (which is an AWESOME deal) and then get a discount on future purchases. No selling necessary.

Demos stamping together!

Last week I got to attend another demonstrator's team meeting and stamp with them! For me this is one of the things I love about the Stampin' Up! family, that we can support and encourage one another, and that getting together with like-minded crafters is so much fun!

Some of my team are spread across Tasmania and one on the mainland that I hold an online team meeting (one happening tonight!), although I am trying to get together face-to-face with some of them so we can share what we love and stamp together.

At the get together last week Sharon shared this make and take using the Climbing Orchid bundle (#145334), one that I don't currently own, and showed the versatility of it with various colour combinations. It was lovely to make and I liked the look of the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions embossing folder (#143751) behind it, that is now on my wishlist or next order! At $13 these embossing folders are a great investment to quickly and easily add some texture and detail to card panels or elements on your card or projects.

By hosting a qualifying workshop, class or event during September and October, you can earn the exclusive host-only Merry Patterns stamp set and this is what Louise shared with us as a make and take. I really liked the design and elements on this card.

Also, it was a great reminder of how an error or omission (in this case Lou forgot to bring the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP #144640) can lead to a new design element.... she made her own DSP at the event, stamping a leaf pattern and embossing it several times on a piece of white cardstock --- can you see that piece on the card below?

The copper embossed deer on a piece of Wood Textures DSP (#144177) was lovely and coordinated well with the other copper elements. Again a textured embossing folder was used to add to the overall design, one I do have!

If you want to order any of the items used in the cards above, click on the various items listed below, or go to my Online Store which is open 24/7 to get your ongoing craft supplies. Don't forget if your order is less than $250 to add this month's Host Code - 23M96DUE - to receive a gift from me in the following month. Don't select 'No Contact' as then I can not send you this gift or keep you updated with SU! specials and catalogues.

Thanks ladies for a fun and informative night, a night I am starting to look forward to each month as part of my 'time out and personal care', as well as sharing and creating with like-minded friends and demos.

If you want to be a part of this great family called Stampin' Up! demonstrators then consider joining my team. I embrace both hobby and business demonstrators and any that fall in between these. Why wouldn't you want to join? Costs only $169 and YOU get to choose $235 worth of products, a great demo discount (20-25%) on your ongoing craft supplies, see and buy new products before anyone else, opportunity to earn $s, a great supportive and inclusive company and many more benefits, ask me for more details.

Not ready to make Christmas cards yet, but would love to get creative! Then consider getting four friends together and book me in to come and do a Hello Friend Heat Embossing Workshop with you all.
