This set is from our “Distinktive” line. Each image was rendered by the artist from an actual photograph, giving so much detail in the image. Here's the image stamped on today's project:

Keep Your Stamps From Falling Off Clear Blocks!

Announcements/ Paper crafting

Happy New Year Stampers! I'm here today with some exciting news! I'm going to share how to keep your stamps from falling off clear blocks. The solution…CLING stamps!

Keep Your Stamps From Falling Off Clear Blocks!

I'm sure you've experienced the same thing I have, when I've inked up a stamp and then just before stamping on the paper…poof…off falls the stamp and lands on the paper in an unplanned spot! This is so frustrating, right? Well, I've got some great news for you!

With the release of Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog comes the release of our NEW Cling Stamps. These new stamps were tested in our Japan market and I've also had the chance to use them for about a month. They truly are a game changer!

Please watch this short video so you can see why I'm so excited to share this news:

Awesome, right? Our classic red rubber stamps are now better than ever! They are the same high quality rubber material you've always loved but now they come with an adhesive image label that will cling like crazy to your clear blocks (annual catalog page e206) OR Stamparatus clear plates (annual catalog page 207) each and every time you use them!

From now on, our stamps will either be “cling” or photopolymer; our large background stamps will also come with a wood option.

You can check out all the new stamp sets in the occasions catalog at my online store OR open any of our catalogs by clicking on the sidebar here on my blog.

FAQ About Being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Join My Team

FAQ About Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Given how many people ask me the same questions around the beginning of a new year, I thought it would be helpful for me to post FAQ about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Over the years I've found that often people are just looking for information and I'm always happy to share about something I love!

For me, recruiting and having a “downline” (more below) is all about leading a team of people who become Stampin' Up! Demonstrators because they love the product, love stamping and want more of it! Whether or not someone wants to become a Demonstrator to earn all the benefits offered by Stampin' Up!, they simply want a discount on their own “stuff”, or they crave community with other kindred crafters, there is a way for everyone to be a part!

OK, here we go.

One of the first questions I usually get is “How much does it cost?” A starter kit with $125.00 of product you choose, catalogs, order forms and other business supplies is $99 plus tax and FREE shipping. During Sale-A-Bration (Jan-March) you will get extra freebies, too! If you decide to continue beyond your first full quarter you need to purchase $300 a quarter, either through your own purchases, through customer orders, events you hold, etc.

Usually the next question I'm asked is “Can I REALLY make money doing this?” The answer is absolutely YES! The amount you will make depends on how much time you are willing to devote to your business. You can have a full business like I do or you can do just enough to support your own purchases. You earn commissions on your sales and that percentage increases as your sales grow. You earn volume rebates (paid by Stampin' Up! directly) on your downline's performance. You can offer classes, sell finished product, maybe even sell at craft fairs!

You can also earn “Flex Points” to spend on crafting products from the catalog, SU logo items, even fabulous trips to exotic destinations like Fiji and Thailand! My husband and I have been blessed to have earned about 8 of these trips and in 2019 we'll be headed on a cruise to the  Greek Isles, all expenses paid!

“Do I have to recruit?” Honestly the answer is no, but why wouldn't you want to share this awesome opportunity with others. Anyone who you sign up is considered your “downline”. They will look to you for guidance and support, but it is totally up to you what you provide. Mentoring my team and signing up new recruits is one of  my favorite parts, but each of us is able to run our business how we see fit.

“If I decide to hold events, what will I do ?” First, as your wonderful and awesome upline, I will help you! Stampin' Up! also provides lots of training and once you become a demonstrator you'll be part of Girls, INK, my amazing team. We have business builders and hobbyists and everyone shares and is  ready to lend a helping hand…so don't worry! We've got you covered!

Now, believe it or not, once we've gotten through these questions, the next one is usually “When and where can I sign up?” It is so easy and you can do it online, right here. I would LOVE to welcome you to my Girls, INK team if this looks like a right fit for you!

Have a few more questions that I haven't covered? Please do ASK! Email me: anne@stampmaven.com and let's have a conversation. I love to share what I do but there's no pressure. If this is right for you, great! If not, that's great, too. This is 100% your decision. I'm just here to give you the information you need.
