I have been promoted

I have been promoted in my position at Stampin' Up to Bronze 2.  There is no pay rise or other incentive this time but none the less it is still a promotion.  I have also just gained my Stampin' Start 1 as well.  For this I get to choose any 3 stamp sets from the catalogue absolutely free, the reason for this is because I have managed to reach my sales target in my first 3 months (yes I have only been a demo since October last year).

Any one of you out there could also do this by signing up to Stampin' Up and becoming a demonstrator.  There are two types of demonstrator hobby demonstrator and earning demonstrator.  Hobby demonstrator is just that, you do it just to reap the benefits of discount from the catalogue without every going out and doing a workshop.  Or you can do what I do and do workshops and earn 20% on all sales plus bonuses (like stampin' start). 

If this sounds good and you want to do it all you need to do is email me here and I will send out all of the information to you.  This is not just for women, but also for men and it would be lovely to have more men in Stampin' Up.

Any way what I really need to say is a massive THANK YOU to all of my customers as I would not have got there without you.

Tuesday Taggers Week 7

Hi Everyone

'Age it' is the theme this week on Tuesday Taggers.

I have created my tag by using Tim Holtz Distress inks in dusty cornfield and peeled paint using cut and dry foam. I then spattered water on it to create the faux bleach effect. I added a rub on from Basic Grey and some other from my stash. The clocks are from Heidi Swapp and has been stamped in stazon that has been double stamped. I then scrunched it up to get the wrinkles on it and went over the creases with an emery board to distress it a bit more. This also distressed the rubons.

I hope you like.

Tuesday Taggers Week 5

Hi Everyone

This week on Tuesday Taggers it is one for the men, meaning you need to create for the Man in your life or just for a man. Men are often hard to make things for, my first passion in crafting is origami and therefore I have fashioned a tie out of paper and a pocket on the shirt. The papers are from the Jessie Edwards range at DoCrafts as are the diamante gems. The rubons are doodlebug.

I hope you all like.

Tuesday Taggers Week 6

Hi Everyone

This week on Tuesday Taggers we have been challenged to use all of our stamps. Well if you could see my stamp collection then you would understand how if I used all of them I would only have a black splodgy mess on the page.

I have used just one stamp set and it is from DoCrafts this week. It is the Secret Gardens and it has been coloured in using Stampin' Up Stampin' Write markers. The background is embellished with stickles. I have used Smooches to colour the flowers and parts of the owl. The twit twoo is written in doodlebug rubons.

I hope you all like.

I know this is not a crafty entry but

Looking on Facebook I came across a photo of me at school and I can't get over how different I was then.  But saying that, it is 19 years ago.  I am the one second on the right.
