Scallop Square Purse, New Catty, Downline, and Friends!

Crafters -

Well... what do you think? I will tell you the picture just doesn't do it justice. And guess what is inside of that UPS (R) envelope? None other than the NEW Stampin'Up! (SU!) catalog which will be effective July 1st.

How did I get the catalog so early, you may ask? Well... let me tell you.  :)  See, I'm a Senior Supervisor with SU! And SU! offered this wonderful training program to Supervisors and Senior Supervisors. It's called the Recruit Crew. I have learned so much these past few weeks.

What this all means is that I have this FABULOUS downline. I had six in my downline and their names are (and I'm listing them in the order they signed up) Nina, Stephanie, Pam, Tina, Geneva, and Angie. And part of Recruit Crew is to sign up a new recruit during a certain time period - well, my friend Jeannette just happened to join our group during this particular time period!

So now, I have seven wonderful people that I get to stamp with quarterly, go to Regionals with (Stephanie and Geneva), go to Convention with (Stephanie and Geneva), and just generally am uplifted with these positive, wonderful friends!

Thanks to Jeannette for signing up during that time period, I received the catalog early. I'm meeting with these wonderful ladies tomorrow morning for coffee and for us all to share a looksie at the catalog! YEAH!

I think I may even carry this catalog in my new purse made with the Scallop Square die! BTW - I have to thank my wonderful sideline Jen and Mindy for showing us these purses and even having a class on it! And a special, heartfelt thanks to Geneva for showing me how to sew this all together. Friends are a gift from God!

SU! has sworn us to secrecy, but I will be having a new catty party in June sometime. Check back for more details!

Opportunity Night - TOMORROW!!!

Crafters -

Tomorrow evening is my Opportunity Night. Several of you have emailed me advising that you had misread the invitation. Because you are not able to sign up as a Demonstrator right now, you replied that you didn't feel right attending and taking a spot.

PLEASE ATTEND ANYWAY!!!!  Yes, this is an Opportunity for you to signup as a Demonstrator, BUT it is also an Opportunity for you to make a card - and receive a FREE individual incentive stamp for attending - who doesn't love FREE?!

I just love the card I made for this Opportunity Night and I think you will too. We are playing with a few products and you will have such fun!

The Opportunity Night is from 6pm until 7p at my home.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night.

Opportunity Night! - DATE CHANGE!!!!

Have you ever thought about becoming a Stampin'Up! Demonstrator?

As many of you know, I am in the middle of a training program with Stampin'Up! One of my challenges for this 2-week period is to have an Opportunity Night to share with potential recruits (future demonstrators).

Now, before you say no, you don't have to sell to anyone - matter of fact - you could be your own best customer! If you are going to pay someone, why not yourself?

The instant income (your cost savings) is 20%. As a demonstrator, I am able to attend Convention in Salt Lake City (this year will be my THIRD year attending!), Regionals (I was even a helper in Virginia Beach in 2008!), get a first glimpse at the new goodies, AND for the past few years, SU! even allows us to preorder a Hostess set or two so we can have plenty of samples to show when the new Idea Book & Catalog arrive! How cool is that?! Especially since I never have the "big" workshops to earn them...

If you think you might possibly, however remotely, be thinking about it - OR if you just want to come and make a FREE card - you are invited to my home on Wednesday evening, May 19th, from 6pm-7pm. I can answer any questions you may have about becoming a demonstrator. As my gift to you for attending, you will receive an individual incentive stamp. These are only available to demonstrators and are GREAT little stamps!

If you'd like to get a head start on the evening, feel free to look at my Demo Business Website at You can click on "Start Your Own Business" on the right hand side or go straight to this link: Watch the "First Impressions" video (less than 4 minutes!) to see how much fun it can be!

Please let me know if you will be attending on Wednesday, May 19th, so I can have a card cut and ready to go for you to make. Look forward to seeing you then!
