Stamp Sell-er Changes

Here's a photo of the new set up of The Stamp Sell-er

As you can see, I moved the tables a bit but I can still fit 15 easily for stamp events, and a bit less for scrapbooking (scrappers need to spread out).  What I added was shelves to hold items that ARE AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE PURCHASE!  As you may know I cannot have stock on any items that are currently in the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, or any of the Mini Catalogs.  However, I do have a lot of retired card stock, Designer Series Papers, Ink Pads, Chip Board, etc, etc, etc. when you are wondering if I have that retired stamp set you missed, there is a place to find out!  So much better than having to wait them to be put out at Mega Meet once a year!

I look forward to seeing you at the Stamp Sell-er soon 
for the next Class or T.A.C.O. Crop.

You can hold Your Workshop here too!

My husband's card

Father's Day!

My husband is an artist!  Seriously, he really is!!  Although card stock, paper, and stamps, are not his typical medium, he is very good at using these things.  Here's a the card he made for his dad on Father's Day.

He used some retired paper to produce the shirt, and the card stock is Mellow Moss (recently retired).  Notice the buttons...he drew them on!  The pocket is too cute and the crown is embossed.  The "I love you" is a random stamp (I've had it for years) and he decided to write the word Dad.

What you can't see is that inside the shirt he wrote "Opps! nothing to see here" in case his father tried to open it a guy would take something apart to see how it works...LOL

He want me to be sure to show the next two photos:

When the card is closed you can see that he trimmed the front just a touch shorter then the back. 
He wanted to show the thin line gold embossed line he put there to accent the card.

On the inside ....

...he added another, larger, crown....and of course the embossed edge.

I love that my husband enjoys doing the same things I do!  I can't paint, draw, or design, like he can...but at least with his talents I can enjoy the benefits!

Watch for the next post about the changes I made to the Stamp Sell-er

Belinda Ellsworth

Here I am, a bit behind on my posts!  I have been very busy restructuring things in the Stamp Sell-er, preparing for my Hostess Luncheon & Open house.  Now that they are finished, it's time to catch up!

On Saturday June 12th I attended a seminar by one of my favorite speakers on direct sales, Belinda Ellsworth.  She was taping an update of one of her audio training CD's so it was a longer than a normal event.  It was interesting to watch the process.  Although she rarely needed to 'back up' for the tape, there were a few times when the recording needed to be reset, or a new one started, whatever the correct term is.  Anyway, that was when she would just chat freely about things.  I even got her to do here famous "clip and clip and clip" infomercial that will not be included on the new recording....but it's sooo funny!

Here's a photo of myself, Belinda, and another Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Donna Schaffer.

Because we purchased this seminar at a very inexpensive price, Belinda's office asked for donations of our products to be raffled off at the event. I donated a bag of Thanks.  Considering we are all in the business of direct sales, I thought anyone could use the cards and goodies as little gifts for their clients.

And Inside:

There were other SU demonstrator's there, including one of my downline (Julie Gill) as well as consultants from many other direct sales companies.  I even ran into my 2nd cousin, Kim, who I had not seen for years.  It turns out she sells jewelry.  I love direct sales, and the people involved in it.  No other business seems as quick to share ideas as this one.  Want to try it for yourself?  Email me today to learn more about the Stampin' Up! opportunity ....there's a new kit starting today!
