New Year, New Opportunities

If you’re anything like me then the budget is very slim at this time of the year and the bills will start mounting as soon as school starts up again. Im sure with the new Occasions catalogue you all have a wishlist a mile long and a great way to make a dent in that is to join Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Demonstrator! You can earn money to not only support your “papercrafting habit” but also to help with the bills and those extras that pop up. The minimum spend for staying current is about $180 (retail) a month or $520 a Quarter. There are a few different ways to achieve that:

Stampin’ Addict – Spend it all yourself – You’re worth it!

Social Butterfly – Throw Stampin’ Parties yourself or for lucky hostesses

Select Friends – Get together with a few like minded friends and place orders together.

Take a look HERE for more or HERE for more detailed info or to sign up.

The bes bit is that during Sale-A-Bration you get EXTRA stamp sets for FREE when you sign up!

Its as easy as 1 2 3 Join

Now before you get too excited there are some things you need to know.

The sales periods for the 2014-2015 annual catalogue, the 2015 occasions catalogue and the 2015-2016 annual catalogue will overlap on 2 June. Please note the following about the transition day:

  • Pricing from the 2014-2015 annual catalogue and 2015 occasions catalogue will remain in effect on 2 June for all carryover items. Brand-new items in the 2015-2016 annual catalogue will remain at their printed price on 2 June. Beginning 3 June, all new pricing will take effect.
  • Current hostess programme benefits will remain in effect on 2 June. Beginning 3 June, all new hostess benefits (Stampin’ Rewards) will take effect.

The new categories will contain NEW and CARRYOVER items in the 2015-2016 annual catalogue. All other items will be searchable and orderable, but not categorised. The Retiring Products category and any remaining available items will be active through 2 June.

I will be popping up the catalogue link in the sidebar later in the morning but I have scheduled this post to go live at 4 am for those of you who just cant wait ( or, like me, have dairy farming partners who toddle off to work then).
