On Stage 2017 Swag

Image of On Stage 2017 swag
Stampin’ UP On Stage gave all its demonstrators a messenger bag, coffee cup, planner, stamp set, pens and a collapsible trash bin.


It is an awesome perk as a demonstrator for Stampin’ UP to be able to attend their live On Stage events.  I always come back excited and inspired to try a lot of new techniques and ideas.

Demonstrators come back with a lot of fun swag as well.  I also won a stamp set in the prize patrol and they gave all attendees an additional stamp set as well.

Another great perk that you get as a demonstrator is the product purchase premier.  You can participate in purchasing from a select group of products from the new catalog before anyone else if you attend the On Stage event!  It is so exciting to be able to work with products so quickly.

Stampin’ UP demonstrators who did not attend the live event get to order December 1st.  Customers get to order beginning January 1st.

Do you want to be one of the lucky ones and get in on the fun?

On Stage Swaps 2017


On Stage In Utah

One of the best things about being a demonstrator is the privilege of attending various Stampin’ Up events.  My friend, Shannon and I attended On Stage in Utah last weekend.  We had a blast meeting demonstrators from all over the country and the world. Be sure to check out Shannon’s blog at: Stampin’ Frenzy  She made a cute little treat swap!

It is always inspirational to see what other people create with the same stamp sets and tools. We also get to see great presentations from other demos and the Stampin’ Up trainers.  Not to mention the Prize Patrol!

Join Us

This is one of the best benefits of becoming a Stampin’ UP demo.  But there are so many others!

Here are some FAQs on becoming a demo.

Q. What are the minimum sales requirements?

A. You only need to submit 300 CSV (Commissionable Sales Volume) in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin’ Up! workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive your 20 percent discount and commission (or 25 percent if you become a bronze elite title or above).

Q. What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business?

A. Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or collect orders from family and friends to equal the quarterly sales minimum.

Q. Can I be my own host?

A. Yes, you can be your own host anytime you want. Invite your family and friends into your home and have a workshop. You will be the host, receiving the Stampin’ Rewards, as well as the demonstrator, receiving your instant income and commission.

Q. How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?

A. The Starter Kit is only $99 USD and is fully customizable. You choose up to $125 USD worth of any current Stampin’ Up! products, and you will also receive a business supplies pack containing materials you need to run your business (valued at least $35 USD).

Q. How can I make money as a demonstrator?

A. You can earn money in three ways: instant or deferred income (20 or 25 percent of each order), monthly volume rebates (4-13 percent of total monthly sales), and monthly team commissions (1–6.5 percent of your recruits’ sales).

Q. Do I have to recruit other demonstrators?

A. No. If you were to recruit demonstrators, you would be paid team commissions on your team’s sales, but this is a perk, not a requirement.

Q. Where will I get project ideas for my workshops? What kind of training can I expect?

A. Stampin’ Up! provides dozens of training resources filled with project ideas and tips to help you run every aspect of your business, including a quarterly publication called Stampin’ Success, Demonstrator Support agents, a demonstrator-only website, and annual and seasonal catalogs.

Q. Is Stampin’ Up! a well-known, respected company?

A. Since 1988, Stampin’ Up! has been selling stamps and papercrafting supplies. In that time, not only have we won industry awards and accolades, but also the loyalty and admiration of demonstrators and customers alike. And that is a trend that we work hard to maintain. You can rest assured that the reputation of Stampin’ Up! will only continue to improve!

Q. What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit?

A. You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator. If you have any questions about Stampin’ Up! or becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, please contact your demonstrator.

Washi Winter Wonderland

Merry Little Labels Washi Card

Washi Winter Wonderland

The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog.  I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape.  Paired up with the Merry Little Labels Bundle, which includes the stamp set and matching punch, the little sentiment makes a wonderful winter card.

Most people really don’t know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making.  It is a simple way to add pattern and color.  But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?

The result is a die cut with a thicker texture and some fun color to boot! Try it out! I set my washi snowflakes on a background of more washi tape as well as stamped snowflakes and rhinestones.

Fun Color Palette 


These fun colors were pul right from the Basics Pack 3 Washi Tape in the Stampin’ UP annual catalog.  It had a lot of great patterns and they reminded me of winter time.

Washi Basic 3 Pack from Stampin' UP

Washi Tape is really a great buy too.  It is $8 for this pack of 5 different designs.  If you would like to try out the technique but don’t want to spend even that much, check out the Clearance Rack.  Currently, Stampin’ Up has a few different 5 packs of washi tape for $3.20 each! Hurry, quantities are limited.

Father Christmas Tag

Father Christmas Tag

Annual Catalog

It seems that when Stampin’ UP’s holiday catalog goes live we, as demonstrators, tend to forget the great resource that the annual catalog offers all year.  This Father Christmas tag features products from the annual catalog and goes together rather quickly so you can make several.

Traditional Color Palette

This nostalgic tag features the traditional colors that we are used to seeing at Christmas time.  I have also colored the image with Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip and Blushing Bride.


To color the Santa image, stamp him using Black Stazon ink on Whisper White card stock.  Press the lid of your stamp pad several times while it is closed to get ink on the inside of the lid.  Then using your aqua painter, fill in the colors that you like to give Santa a watercolored look.

Be Merry DSP

Be Merry DSP by Stampin' UP

The traditional colors of the Be Merry DSP by Stampin’ UP add to the Christmas cheer of the tag.  To get the layered look of the tag, I used the Lots of Labels framelits.  Santa was cut out with the smaller size one, the DSP was the next largest and finally, the largest was cut from Cherry Cobbler card stock.

I stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out with the smallest of the framelits and then sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.

To finish the tag, I punched a hole in the top with a standard notebook hole punch.  I then looped an 8 inch piece of Double Stitched 1/4″ ribbon through the hole.

Don’t forget that through October 31st, the Be Merry DSP is part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free DSP sale.  So you can stock up before Christmas on these great patterns.
