 CLICK HERE !!!  To shop now from the Retiring List

I suppose the part of me that is sad is an instinctive part when saying goodbye to old favourites.
It’s natural, right? Old faves, no longer in use, and it’s just so sad.

But on the flip side… SO MUCH NEWNESS!!!

Oh there are so many gorgeous goodies coming!

So I’m bitter sweet about the retiring list, but also loving it too! I would say, based on experience of the Clearance Rack that updated a few days ago, and a load selling out immediately, now is not the time to wait.
 Already, we know that things have gone even before they got as far as the retiring list, so please, if you really want something, don’t wait.

 So don't delay , order today and get some fabulous goodies while they last.

Ever thought of being a stampin up demo? 

This is an amazing offer (and to be honest, totally unexpected for us too!), and I’m pleased to be announcing it here now!
Starting today, For four weeks only, new recruits can join Stampin’ Up! at one of two great prices. We will continue to offer the traditional starter kit priced at 129 €/£99 (175 €/£130 product value), but for four weeks only we will also be offering a reduced priced starter kit at the low price of 65 €/£50 (70 €/£55 product value.)
So this is just fabulous!

This offer is only good until June 30, so take advantage while you can!
This is a fantastic time to join Stampin’ Up!

May 2014, new recruits will be able to include pre-order items in their Starter Kit.
Message or call me for more details 
I'd love YOU to be part of my team! , so don't hesitate join today...........

A few FAQ's
I thought it would share some FAQs to questions I get asked when someone is considering joining my team.
Q. What is the quarterly minimum and when are the quarters?
It is £270 catalogue price which is £225 net. The quarters are Jan-March, April-June, July-September, Oct-December.
When you join SU, you are already within a calendar quarter, so Stampin’ Up! allows you that first part quarter as a ‘grace’ period. A sort of settling in period for you to find your feet. So therefore, your first quarterly minimums don’t need to be met until the one after. 
Q. What happens if I don’t meet my minimums?
You will be given an extra month to try and achieve them, but if you don’t, you are not required to return anything to SU, you aren’t obliged to do anything more, and aren’t tied in to anything. You will simply go into an ‘inactive’ state, and no longer be able to sell or buy at the 20% discount. However, should you want to rejoin, you can join the same upline immediately by buying a fresh starter kit. But should you wish to go to another upline, you must wait 90 days.
Q. Do my personal purchases count towards the quarterly minimums?
Yes! SU doesn’t mind who does the buying, whether it’s you, your neighbour, or someone else. They will just look at your total figures.
Q. How do I get the discount, and how do I earn commission?
As a demonstrator, you get the immediate 20% discount off the net price at the point you make your purchase through the dedicated demonstrator website. SU does all the calculations for you!  If you are selling to someone you receive the same 20% but as a commission rather than a discount.
Q. Can I earn more than 20%?
Yes, from your own personal sales, you can earn up to an extra 15% commission based on your total monthly sales/purchases.
And if you have a team, there’s extra earning potentional there too.
Q. Do I have to pay tax?
This depends on how much you sell, versus how much you buy.
If you sold £150 you would earn an approximate commission of £25. This would be the taxable amount. However, if you had purchased £100 worth of products for yourself and your business, then you are in a ‘loss’ position as far as income versus expenditure is concerned. To make a profit, you would need to sell 5 times what you spend to be in a profit situation. And it would depend on current income from other sources (day job etc) as to whether you would pay tax or not.
Q. I only want to buy products for myself. Is that okay?
Of course! I welcome all people to my team, whether they want to make a business, or get a discount for their own hobby, or anything in between. I appreciate all my team equally, and give as much support as I’m asked for, and as much guidance as needed.
If you have any more questions just get in touch

Sweet Sorbet Concertina Birthday Card

Sweet Sorbet Concertina Birthday Card

Hi stampers, I just live how this project turned out, it was inspired by a fellow UK Demonstrator 
Joanne James aka The Crafty Owl

It was made for my mother in laws birthday, but could easily be used for Christmas, Easter, a new baby, wedding or engagement..
I only decorated on side but you could do both if you wanted.

The DSP  ( designer series paper ) I used was from the Sweet Sorbet paper pack which was available during saleabration  as a free product when you spent over £45, which I think coordinated perfectly with very vanilla and crisp cantaloupe cardstock I used. 

My Dimensions : In inches

3 pieces of 6 x 12 DSP (Designer Series Paper)
Score each piece  at 2 1/2 , 5 ,7 1/2,10
Base mat sizes - 2 x 5 3/4 ( I used calypso coral )
Top Mat sizes : 1 3/4 x 5 1/2 ( I used Very Vanilla )

     Click  on link for crafty owl tutorial for this card

It's very easy to make and looks fabulous too, I hope you all have a go and I would love to see your creations too. 

Thanks for stopping by
