Celebrating 19 years with STAMPIN UP - by sherrill graff


Stampin up has been in business for over 20 years. They have a home office in Riverton Utah and a manufacturing plant in Kanab Utah.


While in St George Utah last week with with many of the top 100 acheivers we took a road trip to Kanab to visit the plant where stampin up employees make an exclusive line of rubber stamps.
Stampin up products can be ordered from stampin up demonstrators at home workshops or on our websites.

Stampin' Up! offers business opportunities to people interested in becoming demonstrators. I started 19 years ago because of the discount on my purchases but over the past few years I was able to work stampin up for my business to help earn an income for our family while my husband was unemployed. It was nice to be able to earn money doing something I really love.

Whether you'd like to earn money to pay for your stamping supplies, create a full or part-time career, or simply get a discount on your stamping supplies, Stampin' Up! will help you do it.

Since July of 2010 stampin up has added over 7 thousand members to their demonstrator sales force, we are looking to add 3 thousand more before the end of the year. I have a personal goal of adding 3 more team members and helping them get on the fast track to earning a good income.
When they succeed, we all succeed.

We are paid a 20% base commission but when we order enough to submit a workshop we also earn 20% in free hostess merchandise. Every demonstrator also earns 10% in great reward points which can be spent on more merchandise.
Demonstrators who are good at what we do, earn another 10 - 20 % volume rebate in cash.

Demonstrators who have built a team receive downline overrides each month from the company as well. This added paycheck has helped my family over the years.

I have been blessed with a good size team just by consistently adding a few team members each year.

It's not hard when you love what you do and you love sharing the art of rubber stamping and scrapbooking with others.


Hopefully I have peaked your interest in joining my team. Contact me for more information or feel free to visit my stampin up website today

featured artist Lee Conrey stampin up demonstrator and late night stamper member

BLOG CANDY - Lee is giving away a Magic Bow Maker and Three Card Stands
to enter: Visit Lee's blog and leave a comment
with your e-mail address so she can contact the winners!

"Lee gave me one of her bow makers and they are so easy to use. The bows come out perfect every time!" Sherrill Graff


Here is a card I did with the darling Merry Crittermas Stamp Set. Featured in my New Natural Card Stand

I love stamping the images in Black Stazon and then using my Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens. It makes it so easy to color. I wanted to make this cute little image just pop off the page but I needed something else to signify it’s cuteness. I had a piece of Red Stripped Grosgrain already tied on my desk and put that on and it just made all the difference in the world. Cute Stamp and cute Bow. I did the bow with my Magic Bow Maker….which I’m selling on my blog

The Magic Bow Maker is $15.00 which includes Shipping Priority in the U.S.

Please donate your handcrafted greeting cards made with the big shot


Yesterday I taught a blind young lady how to open a pay pal account. She has written beauty tips for blind women and would like to offer downloads to members of other blind centers all over the USA. She types well and has been using the JAWS program wish reads everything on the screen to her. She is pretty good at finding her way around the computer and seems to be doing well at finding things on the web.

Boy do I take my sight for granted!

While I was there, the director said they have been completely out of birthday cards and thinking of you cards and asked if my friends (YOU) would please make more.
What we do is use the big shot to create the cards because they can feel textures, they can feel when a butterfly or a flower is on the card.
They can feel ribbon and buttons, a few see colors and lights and darks but most do not.
Then once we donate the cards someone puts brail words inside for us.

Are you willing to make cards for the Blind center? If so please send them to me at

Sherrill Graff
Blind Center Cards
605 Kendrick Place
Boulder City NV 89005


_____

(added a couple days later....)

thank you for your willingness to help us out. The Blind center patrons will be thrilled!!!

It's a great excuse to use our big shots and invite others to join in the fun!!!!

Today I'm teaching a after school card making class at the recreation center across town... Usually 15-20 kids show up to help. I'll bring all 4 big shots so they can enjoy cranking the handles. They LOVE using the big shots! We have each child create 2 cards, one they keep, and one they donate to charity. Teaching children to serve others at an early age help us all to see "the world does not just revolve around me"

To read more please go here

It's also a perfect way to use up our old cardstock colors!!!
