I recently became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and I am pleased to announce the following:

Card Clubs:
A few people expressed an interest in joining a card club later this fall, and I hope to get at least two clubs started.  My schedule is fairly flexible, but I propose holding a club the first Tuesday and Thursday of each month in my home beginning at 6 p.m.  We can switch days and/or times if it ends up working out better for everyone in the club.  You will make 6 cards - 2 of 3 different designs. Each month the cards will be different, and I will have new ideas, techniques, products, etc. for you to enjoy!  Club Night will last approximately two (2) hours, and everything will be pre-cut and ready for you to assemble.  Please plan to bring your own favorite adhesive and scissors if you have them.    If you would like to join a card club, you would sign up for a 6-month club membership.  There will be no class fee for you!!  Your only obligation is to place a monthly order at the class of at least $30.  One of the six months you will be the “hostess” and receive all the hostess benefits too!  That means free merchandise and hostess sets every 6 months.  In addition, when it is your month to be the “hostess,” you can also increase your benefits by holding a workshop in your home to add to the total card club sales if this is something you want to do.   Please let me know if you would be interested in participating.  When you join a card club, you also receive a free catalog.
Card Classes:
Many people do not like to make a commitment to spend $30 every month on card-making supplies, but they would still like to get together with friends occasionally to make cards so I am also offering a card class where you would make 6 cards – 2 of 3 different designs for $10.  For anyone placing a $35 order at the class, the class fee would be waived.  As with the card clubs, the classes will last approximately two (2) hours, and everything will be pre-cut and ready for you to assemble.  Attendees would just need to bring their own adhesive and scissors.  The classes can be held with a minimum of three people in your home or mine, and almost any evening or Saturday would work for me.

Hosting a workshop is a great way to earn free Stampin' Up! products while you enjoy some time with friends and learn new techniques.  When you host a workshop, you automatically receive a free catalog and earn hostess benefits as follows:

If workshop sales total is:
You Earn Hostess Dollars
You Earn Items @ 50% Off
1 item
2 items
3 items
$160 plus 15% of amt. over
4 items

When hosting a workshop, you would just invite all of your friends, provide refreshments, and I take care of everything else.  I usually plan two projects for your guests to complete, and then they can enjoy refreshments while looking through the catalog and placing orders.

If you would like to receive copies of my newsletter, please e-mail me at  Also, please remember that you can order online 24 hours a day directly from my website at   If you use the website, please be sure to put my name in as your demonstrator to get the “Preferred Pricing.”

Thank you for your support.  I look forwarding to working with you.
