Common questions I receive about joining Stampin' Up! and the STARS!

What are the minimum sales requirements? 
You only need to submit $300 in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin’ Up! workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive your 20 percent discount and commission. 

What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business? 
Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or collect orders from family and friends to equal the $300 quarterly sales minimum. NOTE: Many of the demonstrators in my community of STARS are just that, a hobby demonstrator. If that describes you - you'll fit right in!

Can I be my own hostess? 
Absolutely yes, you can be your own hostess anytime you want. Invite your family and friends into your home and have a workshop. You will be the hostess, receiving the hostess benefits, as well as the demonstrator benenfits, receiving your instant income and commission. Or just submit orders of your own that total $150 or more! 

Do I have to recruit other demonstrators? 
No, you are not required to recruit. If you were to sign up new recruits, you would be paid override commissions on their sales. This is a perk, not a requirement

What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit? 
You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders.

How to use Stampin' Blendabilities

If you're looking for tips on how to use them, Stampin' Up! has several quick videos showing a few different ways to use Stampin' Blendabilities:

Let me just say - in the short amount of time I've been playing with these, I've come to really enjoy these new markers.  There is no right or wrong way to use them.  So, if you love to color, but don't enjoy working so hard to get "just the right look", you are gonna love Stampin' Blendabilities!

Fun "Top Note" on Stampers Showcase

Woohoo - I received some congratulations for a card of mine that was posted on the Stampin' Up! demonstrator site yesterday (Stampers Showcase).  I didn't even know it, since I was busy with my Birthday Bonanza Open House event yesterday!  I had so much fun stamping and chatting with 30 ladies.  Thank you for a fun day.  I'll post the 3 birthday cards we made soon.

In the meantime - here is the card that was posted on Stampers Showcase:


I've also received a few questions on how I made square "Top Note".  Check out this past blog post for directions and as well as a supply list.

Enjoy~Dawn O
