Seasonal Samplers

Fresh Prints DSP Stack: Valentine Sampler

Woohoo - I met with my DOstamperSTARS downline on Friday and we had the best time stamping, sharing and swapping!  One of our swaps was Valentine themed "sampler squares" using Stampin' Up!'s new Fresh Prints Designer Paper.  I'm always so impressed with the what everyone comes up with.  I quickly put together my framed Valentine Sampler using only half of the swaps.  Still have plenty left to put second sample together.

Some the Fresh Prints Valentine Sampler details include:

  • These are 2-1/4" squares
  • I mounted mine onto a piece of 7-1/8"square Whisper White (for easy square alignment), then again onto a 9" square to fit my frame
  • Colors are Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake and Whisper White
  • Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack 132996
    • 48 sheets of 4-1/2 x 6-1/2"
    • 4 ea of 12 double-sided designs

Hope you enjoy making your own Valentine's Sampler - try it, they are lots of fun!

Seasonal Sampler: Winter Frost

Here's a Seasonal Sampler I did with my DOstamperSTARS.  This month's theme was Winter.  Each person designed 2 squares and we swapped them at our Potluck-n-Love event last month (more on that in a future post).

Here's my 2" squares:

Here's the finished sampler framed in a 10x10 shadowbox, with a mat using Stampin' Up!'s Silver Foil Sheets (132178) :




Didn't it turn out great?  I'm just lovin' these samplers!!  

One of my favorite squares is the Silver Foil Snowflake made by Jolene. Here's some tips:



I had an extra reindeer square leftover, so I made a card with it.  Really, any square could be turned into a card.

Season of Style Inspired Christmas Sampler, Last Day $25 Join

I am so excited to share today's project with you!  It's a Christmas Sampler, inspired by Stampin' Up!'s Season of Style Designer Series Paper from the 2013 Holiday Catalog.  I've been wanting to do one of these ever since I saw my friend Penny Thomas do one.  Then I received one in a swap from my sweet friend, Denise Sullivan and that was it...I totally fell in love with them.  

This weekend, I've finally made one.  Well actually - my DOstamperSTARS had a swap.  We each created two squares for the swap and we ended up with plenty of squares to complete two samplers.  Here's what I did with mine (I know you'll want to "pin it"!)...

Additional Questions I've received from you... 

Q: How often must orders be placed?
A: $300 in orders (your personal orders, other orders from customers, friends/family - all count), must be placed each calendar quarter.  One order or many orders - either way, they just need to add up to $300.
Q: The $ amount of each order?
A: There is no minimum "individual order".  Though - I recommend at least $50 orders, as that helps maximize the minimum shipping of $6.95 or 10% (actually $69.50 is better).  However, you get the same hostess benefits that customers/hostesses do when your order totals $150 ($25 in free product - woohoo!).  
Q:  When is my first $300 quarterly order/sales due?
A:  Not until March 31st!!  Your next one after that will be June 30th

Q:  I'm thinking of becoming a friends/family demonstrator, what are the benefits?

  • 20% discount (or more) on all orders (including your personal orders, other orders from customers, friends/family - etc).  
  • Bi-monthly magazine from Stampin' Up!, 
  • Connection to Stampin' Up! via demonstrator website and Stampin' Connection online community
  • Can attend the annual Stampin' Up! convention
  • Pre-view catalogs and products before customers
  • and more!  

Q: How long does the commitment to SU run?
A:  As long as you like and as long as you submit $300 in orders each calendar quarter - you're in!  When you decide that is no longer working for you - you can be done.  No questions asked!
Q: If I join, can I order clearance rack, weekly deals, Stampin' Up! specials and still get the discount?
A:  Absolutely!  You can order from any current Stampin' Up! catalog, discounted clearance rack or current specials and still receive your discount - great savings! 

Q: I'm long distance from you.  How does that work?
A: No problem at all.  I have members from all over the US and PR. In fact, the majority of my DOstamperSTARS are long distance.  We connect for both business and fun on our private Facebook community.  I offer "basic" training, tutorials, reminders and more on my DOstamperSTARS password protected blog.  We do occasional swaps and more!!

Q:  I'll probably only buy for myself, family and friends.  Is that OK?
A:  Yes - that is OK!  In fact, the majority of my DOstamperSTARS purchase the same way.  Most people join for the discount.  You'll fit right in!
