Get your Big Shot (or $100 in merchandise) for FREE when you join Stampin' Up! in October!!

Oh my gosh - the excitement is building for the once-in-a-lifetime offer from Stampin' Up!  Many of you have contacted me with questions about the Stampin' Up! opportunity.  The two BIG questions are:

1.  What are the sales minimums? 
Stampin' Up! sales minimums are SO low (in my opinion).  It's only $300 a quarter!  You can submit orders each month, or wait and only submit them once a quarter.  Either way - as long as they add up to $300 or more each calendar quarter - you're set!  PLUS - your first full quarter doen't end until MARCH 31, 2012.  Plenty of time!!

2.  Do I have to do parties?
No - you don't have to do parties!  In fact - many of the demonstrators in my group do not do parties.  They are what I call a Friends and Family Demonstrator.  They buy for themselves and sometimes for their friends and family.  See here for the Type of Demonstrator you might be. 

Got more questions - feel free to contact me at [email protected]


Spooky Stampin' Up! Peek-a-BOO Eyes!

I'm lovin' the new Stampin' Up! Peekaboo Frames Die for the Big Shot Today's card was inspired by a scrapbook page done by fellow demonstrator Patti Chesky.  I love the way she use the circle frame to create the word BOO!  Clever girl that Patti!  Here's my take on it...



For the "boo" - I used the Alphabet Simple Letters Die for the Big Shot. And guess what? The black oval for the eyes - that's from the center of the "b". Isn't that cool?!  Love it!

The black "O's are the circle frame from the Peekaboo Frame Die - isn't that cute?

The whites of the eyes were created with the Circle's #2 Die.  But you could use the 1-3/8" Circle punch.  But a 1-1/2" size is better (imo).


The "Spooky" greeting is from the Wicked Cool Stamp set (#118738w or #120600c).  Stamped in Basic Black and punch with the Decorative Label PunchThe Designer Series Paper is called Pick Your Poison from the 2011 Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.

I think this is another card for Max and Sam...what do you think?
