Be Part of the 30 Year Celebration!

Announcements/ Classes / Events/ Join My Team

Hey Stampers; happy Friday eve! This weekend, I've got a fun stamp club coming up and get to go to a Baby Expo; no, nothing new to report here! 🙂 Any trips or fun celebrations in your plans? Speaking of celebrations, I would love to have you on my Stampin' Up! team and Be Part of the 30 Year Celebration! That's right, it has been 30 years since Shelli Gardner and her sister Vonna founded Stampin' Up! I  joined in 2002 and have been on the best journey ever since. Both the company and I have “come a long way baby”. Look at the difference in catalog covers from then and now:

Be Part of the 30 Year Celebration!

One of the reasons I joined was to be able to get my hands on all the new goodies before anyone else. Demonstrators get to “pre-order” select items a whole month before the catalog is released to everyone else. Did you know you can actually choose BRAND NEW STUFF when you purchase your starter kit?!! Yep, for $99 plus tax (Stampin' Up! pays the shipping), you get to pick $125 of products. AND you get all your business supplies like catalogs and order forms, too!

“Anne, I don't really want to be a Demonstrator right now. I'd rather just order from you, come to your classes and enjoy your AH-MAAA-ZING customer service! But, I would like the catalog”.

My stamp club members will get a free new catalog in May at our meetings and I would be so happy to get one into your hands, too! Just email me and I'll let you know how to get one. If you already have an active demonstrator, please ask them for a  catalog. I do not want to take business away from someone else.

Please note that I am only able to mail catalogs within the United States per company policy. Catalogs will be mailed around the middle of May and you can begin placing orders June 1.

Dragonfly Dreams Bundle…coming January 4!

Big Shot/ Join My Team/ Paper crafting/ Sale-A-Bration

I am loving the new Dragonfly Dreams Bundle that is coming in the new Occasions Catalog on January 4! Demonstrators could pre-order from this catalog in December so we've had chillin' time to play during the holidays!

dragonfly dragonfly1 dragonfly2

Not yet a Demo? Hmmm…maybe you'd like to see a little more of what could await you on January 4, 2017 (that's the start of our annual Sale-A-Bration promotion and you can earn so much during this time-through the end of March)

By choosing to join the Girls, INK team, you are in for something more than stamps, paper, and ink.  Yes, you can get up to a 25% discount on all that, but…..the opportunity to meet the most amazing people and form lasting friendships is what it's really all about! Some of my best friends have been formed during my Stampin' Up! journey that started almost 15 years ago!

In addition, my team is part of an awesome group of demonstrators called “Creativate”, started by one of my friends and upline. This group has trainings, videos, techniques…the list goes on an on. When you join Stampin’ Up! with me….you not only get ME and the other Girls, INK'ers to help you, but you get training that is backed by 150+ years of experience…at no charge…FREE!

If you have considered joining Stampin’ Up! with the thought of “trying it out to make some money” and growing a part-time or full-time business, I would love to help you! Let's chat in person or on the phone! I have a successful business. The upline you choose is important. Make sure you sign up with someone who will meet YOUR  needs.

Can I really just join to get a discount? Absolutely! In fact, that's why I joined, no kidding! Since then (2003) I've been among the Top 100 demonstrators in the company, earned fabulous trips to places like Fiji for me and my husband, gotten LOTS of free products, and, most important of all, helped others achieve THEIR dreams!

You also might want to consider:

  •  If you plan on ordering more than $100 in the next 3 months–this is truly the absolute best value for your money and I honestly can't think of any down side.
  • Get over $150 of products for $99 (and pay ZERO shipping)
  • 20% discount on all orders
  • You will remain active and enjoy all benefits at least until the end of June!
  • You will be able to order a month early from the new annual catalog this summer!

If you've been a demonstrator before, now is a great time to join again…even if you just want the kit! You aren't committing to anything; well, maybe just fun, great products, saving money, fun, great friends, fun…well, you get the idea!
OK–you have convinced me…….HOW DO I SIGN UP???
It’s easy, peasy, done…..just click HERE

Seriously, I LOVE, LOVE what I do and I think you would, too! AND…I mean it when I say I'm here to help you. Please do shoot me an email or call me if you have any questions.

What Are You Waiting For?

Join My Team

Okay, it's time to get serious about doing something just for you!!  The holidays are just around the corner and who couldn't use some extra spending money? You don't need any extra money? Well, how about spending time with other FUN crafters who enjoy stamping and scrapbooking as much as you do! I'd like to invite you to become part of my fabulous Stampin' Up! team, Girls INK .

Why join Girls, INK?

Selecting the right group to join with the right leader is a very important decision. The support of your upline (me) can be an important factor in the success of your business, as can joining the right group with extra exceptional ladies. I just happen to think I have the most awesome group in Stampin' Up! We gather together for regular meetings, hold quarterly large events, and also socialize on retreats and dinner nights. We pray for one another and our long distance members stay connected through Facebook, email and phone calls.

Testimonial from Girls, INK team member Tracy B:  Anne is a great
mentor and motivational leader. I had been her customer for years
so of course I chose her when I was ready to start my own Stampin'
Up! business!

Whether you want to enjoy Stampin' Up! as a hobby to spend time with other ladies who enjoy crafting, pay off a bill or two as a business demonstrator or be a full time career demonstrator like I am, I know  that I can help you set and reach your goals. I've earned the company incentive trip multiple times and have been a top 100 demonstrator, and have helped my team to achieve their goals.

Right now, you can join Stampin' Up! for only $99 and you can select $125 of your choice of merchandise in any of our current catalogs…PLUS, until August 31 you may select an extra project kit valued up to $29.90!

If that isn't enough, here are a couple of additional benefits:

  • Starter Kit ships FREE!  You can purchase things on your Wish List and not pay anything for shipping!
  • There is no penalty to drop!  If you wish to extend your demonstrator status for the following quarter, you would be required to have $300 in product sales (including your own orders).

Our next Girls, INK group meeting is on September 5; we'd love to meet you! Give me a shout and I'll give you all the details. If this date isn't good for you, let's grab a beverage somewhere and chat more!

Envelope Punch Board Coming…..

Announcements/ Product Information

While I can't show you a picture of the actual product yet, I can show you samples of the awesome envelopes you will be able to make with this envelope punch tool! I showed you a video yesterday on our rockin' envelope liner framelits that will make your regular size envelopes coordinate with the card inside. If you're looking for even more, the new Envelope Punch Board is for you! September 1 is right around the corner and that's when you can get your hands on this baby…

BUT, I have even better news! Let's just say you've been wanting to add so many things to your wish list, but your budget just doesn't cooperate…sound familiar? Well, until August 31 you can become one of my terrific Girls, INK team members and get $125 of products you choose for only $99 AND a free extra kit of your choice with a value of up to $29.90.

BUT,  it gets better! Once you have your Stampin' Up! password, you can log on and pre-order the envelope board for a 30% discount (discount is regularly 20% but on your first order made within 45 days, you get 30%)…only one of the perks of being a demo…woo hoo!! So, take a few minutes to read about more bennies, and if you have any questions before you join us, give me a shout!!


Why you will LOVE the Envelope Punch Board:

  • It creates totally customizable envelopes in up to 66 different sizes: (not to mention a bizillion different color and pattern options depending on the paper you want to use). Even tried and true envelope sizes will only take you moments to create!
  • It’s super easy to use:  it looks intimidating at first glance, but when you see that all you have to do is measure for the first punch and from there you just turn and score you’ll be doing the happy dance!
  • It’s small and lightweight: this makes it easy for you to take it with you wherever you create. It’s super portable and easy to store – small and light enough that you could use it while watching a soccer match, at a park, at a friend’s for craft night-anywhere.
  • It even has a scoring tool as well as a punch:  create rounded corners on your envelopes.
  • It’s easy to keep it all together:  the stylus storage compartment and two punches are designed into the tool so you don’t have a bunch of little pieces to keep track of (even the instructions are printed right on the tool so you won’t lose them).
  • The price is terrific: for a tool that does so much!
  • It will be in next year’s annual catalog:  it’s here to stay.

Deb’s Workshop

Join My Team

I drove up to Sherman last night to help the newest member of the "Girls, Ink" team with her first workshop.  Deb recently joined the team and became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  She had a great workshop and we all had a ball!


When a new person is just getting started, I always offer to either do her first workshop or help her to do it herself.  It's all part of the Girls Ink support system when she decides to join my team.  (Don't tell, but I think I have more fun than anyone at these things!)

Ever think you might like to start your own business from home and get paid for helping other folks and doing what you love?  Take a look at this page to get more information and call or email me with any questions you have.  We have a ton of fun!

Great Meeting!

Classes / Events/ Join My Team/ People

We had a great time at our monthly Downline Biz Meeting last night!  We decided to switch gears a bit and did a pot-luck dinner.  There were salads, veggies, bread, and some Spaghetti Carbonara that supplied everyone's allocations of fat and cholesterol for the next six weeks!  Yum!  Oh, did I mention dessert? There were a few of them as well.  Shocker!!

Click for full image

There were 9 ladies and the Stamp Slave was there to help with the cooking.  Lots of business ideas were batted back and forth, along with recognition of a recent promotion, and plenty of encouragement.  We had a swap with plenty of handmade cards being passed around.

Dee Ann even found some new ways
to use parts of the decorations!

I have a great time as Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  (We all do…) It's not all work!  We get together, have fun, and we get to make money while we do what we love.

DL Meeting Tonight

Join My Team

It's Dave the Stamp Slave tonight. Anne is holding our Business Meeting so I thought I'd relate a few things to you that Anne told me about the Stampin' Up! Founder's Circle trip.

The Business Meeting, or 'Downline Meeting', is something we do monthly to support our team. We make time for recognition and encouragement, prizes, discussion of business issues, exchange of ideas, Q&A, and more.  There is always a swap for those who want to participate, and time for socializing.  Did I mention FOOD???  There are usually a few goodies to be had too, (non-fattening, of course…  HA!).

Anne was completely pampered at the Founder's Circle retreat. They took over the entire hotel for 4 days to take care of these ladies! If you wanted to stay in your jammies for the whole time, that was OK! More on that another day…

As Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, we are all business owners and work for ourselves, but we represent a great company in Stampin' Up!. When the group toured the manufacturing facility in Kanab, Utah, Anne got to talk with several of the employees. There were people who had been there for 10, 11, even more than 15 years! They said they wouldn't want to work anywhere else.

Here are a couple of pictures showing just one of Stampin' Up!'s civic activities.


In the first picture, Anne and Audra, another demo on the trip, are at a local kid's playground. The stuff on the ground is the waste rubber from the stamp manufacturing process. Stampin' Up! donates all of it to local cities for their parks and the kids get the benefit. Pretty great!
