July 2010

People Highlights!!!

Just wanted to share some more excitement with you all!!!   Here I am at the awards booth....where I received my FOUNDER'S CIRCLE bag!!!!  Everyone was screaming and cheering when those sneaky ladies behind the desk flung it out from under the counter!!!!

What is FOUNDER'S CIRCLE you might ask...well...let me tell you!  In September I get to go on an all-expense paid trip to GORGEOUS St. George, Utah...where I get to chum around for 5 wonderful days with the TOP 100 DEMONSTRATORS in the country!!!!  We eat and sleep-in and lay by the pool and shop and laugh and get to enjoy a pajama party and tour the manufacturing facility at Knab, Utah!!!!  It's the most sought out trip for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator...you all know we work hard and this is Stampin' Up!'s way of pampering us!!!  Did I mention that we get presents on our pillows every night???  You all know how much I LOVE PRESENTS!!! LOL!

And my WONDERFUL Natalie - this is my SAM - you hear me talk about my SAM....she's my Service Account Manager at Stampin' Up!  This is the jewel that I call when I have questions or need to get something fixed....you know...when you have a tiny little issue with something - SHE'S THE ONE THAT GETS IS DONE!!!!  We all love her - don't we???

STAMP CLUBS:

 

HOW DOES IT WORK:  This is a 10-10-15 plan. We have 10 stampers for 10 months (starting in August - no December...too crazy) placing a minimum $15 order. You'll receive the NEW Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog for FREE!!! Instead of paying a fee to take a stamping class, you get to spend that money on new stamps & accessories!!!

WHERE?  We meet at my church (Trinity Lutheran, 300 Broad St, Menasha) each month.  You can come as early as 5:30pm, but not later than 6:30pm. The cost for the room is $20, which I split with the hostess for the month. The hostess provides a small snack for everyone and she also gets to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s GENEROUS hostess program!!!

If you aren't able to make your scheduled date...you can come make your projects on another night....if that doesn't work, your club partner will make your projects for you and they'll be available when your order comes in.

You can choose Monday or Thursday:

Classes will be held on August 23 & 26, September 27 & 30, October 25 & 28, November 18 & 22 (Jan-June dates to be announced later)

 

Technique
 
  

NEW TECHNIQUE CLUB!!!

The NEW Technique Club will work pretty much like a Stamp Club – 10 people, 10 months, $15 minimum order.  Here’s the TWIST….this class is going to involve a “technique” with an instruction sheet so you can make an album of techniques!!!!  The “technique” card will involve creating the technique twice – once for your card and again for your instruction sheet!!!  We’ll also be making a Big Shot card/project and a Punch card!!!  3 projects in all!!!! Members will pay a fee of $5 with a minimum $15 order.  Orders over $40 will enjoy this class for free!  If you aren’t sure about committing you can still enjoy this class for $15.

Stampers can come as early as 5:30pm, but not later than 6:30pm. The cost for the room is $20, which I split with the hostess for the month ($10 each). The hostess provides a small snack for everyone and she also gets to take advantage of Stampin' Up!'s GENEROUS hostess program!!!

Tuesday classes will be held on August 10, September 7, October 12, and November 9 (Jan-June dates to be announced later)

GROUPS FILLING UP FAST!

If you are interested...please email me and I'll find a group for you!!!  I will be compiling the groups within the next week – so please don’t wait!
