#630 – Paper Pumpkin – 6 Year Anniversary – February 20, 2019

Paper Pumpkin is turning six and we want to celebrate with you! After all, we could not have shared all these years of creativity if it weren’t for our demonstrators and subscribers.

To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we’re offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit.

About the March Kit and FREE stamp set

We don’t want to give away too much, but here’s a little bit about the March kit you can share with your subscribers/customers to get them excited! Because it’s our birthday, we decided to create a kit that is perfect for making birthday cards!

  • The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable cards
  • Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
  • This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”!
  • The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.

For example…
*Three month subscription, you can choose one FREE Saleabration item.
*Six month subscription, you can choose one or two Saleabration items (depending on the price option you pick)
*Twelve month subscription, you can choose up to four free Saleabration items (depending on the price option you pick), plus you would have $20 in FREE Hostess rewards of your choice.

#629 – The Opportunity – February 19, 2019


I have been part of Stampin’ Up! the past 23 years!  I joined because I liked the product and I liked making things to give to other people.  I never imagined it being a business, but the beauty of SU is that you get to make your business what you want.  The choice is yours!

You get to choose what YOU WANT in your starter kit!  That is HUGE!!!  Great deal, whether you want to join for:
*the discount
*to earn a little extra money 
*to earn money period 🙂

Why not get paid to do what you love???


I LOVE this bag!!!

Becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator has many benefits, including discounted products, having your own business, and being part of the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator community. To get you started on the right foot, during Sale-A-Bration we’ve sweetened the deal with TWO Starter Kits to choose from.




As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator you’ll teach others how to be creative using high quality stamps, ink, and paper, as well as embellishments, specialized tools, beautiful project kits, and more. We take the guesswork out of coordination so you and your customers can have an amazing crafting experience, no matter your skill level.


Are you a party person? Part of the fun of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is bringing people together to share creative experiences—either in person or online. Your customers will be excited to learn creative tips and techniques, share ideas, and come into contact with new friends who love papercrafting as much as they do!



The Stampin’ Up! home office provides the support you need to run a successful home business. We send you a quarterly magazine and weekly emails filled with detailed project ideas, business tips, demonstrator spotlights, the latest Stampin’ Up! news, and more. We also offer regular promotions throughout the year, giving you an opportunity to contact your customers. And our fabulous, twice yearly OnStage events for demonstrators are icing on the cake! You’ll enjoy classes, be first to see the latest catalog, get training and information on new products, and much more.


As a demonstrator you’ll earn 20–25% on every sale, plus additional income based on sales volume. You can also earn team commissions as you recruit others to join your team. Oh, and did we mention you can earn an amazing incentive trip every year? Think Thailand, Alaska, Mediterranean cruises, and more! Some of our demonstrators earn these trips every year and they absolutely love them.

I’m finally back from Atlanta.  My flight was cancelled Sunday night and they said they were going to get us out Weds.  Say WHAT???  Anyways, after spending Monday on standby for six flights and another cancellation due to plane mechanical issues, I finally made it back earlier today.

A BIG thank you to my husband, Paul, for taking care of my blog  when I was stranded at the airport on Monday. Also, thank you to Lisa Lange for sharing the card sample yesterday.  While Atlanta was nice and warm, it was good to get home!  This car wanted to come home with me too. It really, really did!

Winners for Monday and Tuesday:  Ruth Axmark and Carol Busby
Thank you to everyone for your comments!  Keep them coming!

Tuesday smiles…

If we are going to have snow, we might as well make the most of this.  I saw this DIY on Facebook.  Want to liven up the neighborhood? Build several “blobs” and put some glow sticks in for eyes.

Short and sweet post today because Janice is stuck at the Atlanta, Georgia airport. Her flight out Sunday night was cancelled due to weather and she’s been stuck trying to fly Standby to get home.  She’s booked on a Tuesday flight if nothing opens up on standby, but that’s a long time to spend in an airport.   Kinda reminds me of a Tom Hanks movie…

Winners and regular postings should resume tomorrow.
