So Long Stampin’ Up!

With the Best of Snow set, you also get the never-before-seen Let it Snow image which coordinates perfectly with the Bracket Label Punch.

Easter bunny punch art

Easter isn’t too far away and I;m looking forward to it once again. I use to do little things like bunny foot prints for my children to follow to their eggs. Ofcourse each year they had an egg hunt aswell around our front and back gardens.

This year their are four more little ones to entertain at Easter time as we now have four adorable grandchildren that are just the right age for a egg hunt :)

I have also participated in a couple of swaps on different groups that I am in and today’s card is an Easter Bunny garden.


I used a variety of items that I had in my stash and wont list them all as there were a lot.

Today I just wanted to share how I made the cute as bunny he is made from Stampin’ Up! punches.

I used the following punches:

Old style Ornament punch for his head (this is now retired but I’m sure you could use the Full Heart punch instead).

2-1/2″ circle punch for his body.

Extra Large Oval punch for his ears and feet.

Large Oval punch for the inner ears and his hands.

1/2″ Circle punch for his nose.

Small Heart punch for his nose and mouth.

Owl Builder Punch for his eyes.

I do love step cards but I just don’t do them often enough…..guess that is going to have to change :)

Sale-A-Bration is ending soon, inserting sad face here….

There is only one (1) week left of Sale-A-Bration :(

So I am just going to recap one of the benefits of joining Stampin’ Up!

You have the opportunity to purchase the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit at only $169 and best of all you can order -$235 $255 (Normally $235- but this unbelievable special lasts until the until the 31st of March!! limited time only!!!!!!!!) worth of ANYTHING you you like. 

There is so much support is available via our demonstrator website, monthly newsletter ‘Impressions’, our terrific team forums, facebook team group, plus I’m here to help with questions along the way as well .
Get your products at a discount (minimum 20% off. ) Build your craft stash. This benefit alone is a great reason to join. Plus your first order over $300 you get 30% off!
Does this sound like something for you? Have you been looking for an opportunity to build a fun, home based, family friendly craft business?
I’d love to welcome you to my team. I am happy to help you get started towards your goals – whether that is to build up your craft supplies, get to know other craft lovers or to build a craft business.
Please phone me on 0478603360 email me at  If you’d like me to send you an information pack to look over or have questions about becoming a demonstrator. Sign up is very quick and easy just click on the join now button below to find out more information.

What if I don’t want the kit, can I still order Stampin’ Up! products from you?
Absolutely, but you are crazy not to join!! Most of the girls that have joined my team did not join to start a business they are just doing it to get the products cheaper and support their addiction  to papercrafting (or Hobby) :). But you could if you wanted to even build any sized business doing something you love!

Do I require an ABN to join it asks me for one on the form?
NO you can just join for a hobby! No ABN is required. Even though it is on the form you will notice it doesn’t have a red asterisk next to it so is not required to be filled out.

Where it says I am registered for GST what do I put in there?
You click on NO – Unless you are earning more than $75,000 in gross earnings.

If I join and don’t reach the quarterly sales target ($440 per quarter this includes the G.S.T ), what happens? Do I just stop becoming a demonstrator and lose my benefits?
That is correct – there is no fee, nothing happens, you just finish. They do give you an opportunity to try and make up what you missed the last three months so you are still active in the fourth month and go into pending. You need to make up what you missed to continue. But there are no fees, lock in contracts etc. It works out with the discount to around $110 per month in sales.

* In Australia we need to pay G.S.T. on our purchases and I have included this in my calculations to make it easier for you.

After becoming a demonstrator, there is a one off 30% discount on my first order? 
YES- there is a 30% discount on your first order as long as it is over $300 and within the first 45 days of signing up. This can not be split up over a few orders and does not apply to your starter kit.
