Team Retreat Swaps…

Pootlers Team Swaps September 2018

StampinByHannah Team Retreat Swaps…

 

Well Hello! I am SO glad to be back blogging again this morning… wondering where I’ve been?! Well, I would love to say I’ve been sunning myself on some hot beach somewhere, but alas no… just struggling with a complete lack of crafty mojo! However, I managed to craft over the weekend, and find time to write some blog posts… and so here I am!

There are some changes coming to StampinByHannah this month as we start the new Stampin’ Up! year and I gear up for the massive challenge that I have set myself this year…. to earn the incentive trip! So, Starting this week I have a weekly Facebook Live planned, along with some other fun classes, clubs and more!

Before we get to that though I thought I would share what I got up to at a recent Stampin’ Up! Team Retreat…

Pootlers Team Photo September 2018

We had THE most fabulous time, and I have a few projects and things to share with you from the weekend over this week.

Today I thought I would share all the wonderful Swaps I received…. Swapping is one of my favourite parts of Stampin’ Up! events. It’s a chance to get a mountain of inspiration in a snap, chat with other demonstrators and bond over your favourite Stampin’ goodies! This time the team out did themselves with some truly wonderful ideas. Click the video to see them all, or there are also some photos of a few of them below….

—– VIDEO COMING THIS EVENING…… sorry, last minute rush and YouTube failed me 🙁

will share my swap with you tomorrow, but for now here a few images of some of the swaps I received…

Pootlers Team Swaps September 2018

I love the creativity you find in a bag of swaps. Not only in the designs and the items people have made, but also in the things people put in them! This time I found chocolates, sweeties, tealights, hand creams, jewellery, scissor charms, and more!

Leadership Blog Hop | Team Events with Stampin’ up!

Stampin' Up! OnStage November 2018

StampinByHannah Leadership Blog Hop | Team Events with Stampin’ up!

Stampin Up Leadership Blog Hop

Welcome to the Leadership Blog Hop… we are a group  of 5 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who are currently working together to support our other Stampin’ Sisters (and brothers) while our Team Leader is away on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska!

I had heaps of ideas of what I could share with you today…. and then my day job took over this week, and actually getting something made in time provided a little too much. However, I still wanted to let you know about some of the fun things we do as Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!

Stampin’ Up! Events…

Stampin' Up! OnStage November 2018

My favourite part of being a part of Stampin’ Up! is events…. of all kinds! Every 6 months Stampin’ Up! host a fabulous Demonstrator Exclusive event; OnStage! The next one is coming in November, but tickets go on sale next month. OnStage is SO much fun… we get to spend the day with hundreds of like-minded Demonstrators, get to see the next catalogue before anyone else, get to take home an exclusive bag full of products too!

Team Events…

BUT we also have team events! Our next team retreat is in September… and we have a jam packed weekend of crafting planned in a luxury hotel in Manchester! I am SO excited…. and more than a little nervous because I’ve managed to volunteer to present too! We also have heaps of Online events… with a busy Facebook group, videos, challenges and much more!

I’ll share the challenge I’ve set the team over on my Facebook Page next weekend…. Because if I share it with you now, it’ll spoil the surprise for them.

You can join in with our events by joining the team right now, and if you do Stampin’ Up! will thrown £63 worth of ink pads into your kit for FREE! How cool is that!

Thanks for joining me today; now hop on over to Heidi’s blog where I know she has a fun creative project for you!

Sale-a-bration Spotlight | How to Join Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! UK Starter Kit

StampinByHannah Sale-a-bration Spotlight How to Join Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! Saleabration

There are 3 fabulous parts to Sale-a-bration; Shop, Host and Join. I chatted about the Shop part last week, but I really wanted to talk about the fabulous joining offer this week.

The Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit is the gateway to joining Stampin’ Up! Grabbing the Starter Kit gets you so much…

  • £130 worth of Stampin’ Up! products of your choice, and pay just £99
  • 2 Stamp sets of your choice extra for FREE
  • 20-25% discount on your Stampin’ Up! purchases
  • An exclusive quarterly magazine
  • Stampin’ Up! events, trips and more…
  • Pre-order for new products and catalogues
  • Plus, a fabulous community of like minded crafters, inspiration, and fun!

Stampin' Up! UK How to Join

So, What does a Starter Kit look like?

Your Starter Kit is totally customisible, it contains items of your choice. I have a couple of suggested kits here…

The Daisy Delight kit… (perfect for a new crafter)

What about a Big shot…

How do I continue to receive all the great benefits?

Stampin’ Up! do have a minimum that they do ask you to meet. However, it is very reasonable, just £225 per quarter. They don’t include the quarter that you join in, so if you sign up before the end of March (and so get those extra stamp sets as part of Sale-a-bration!) you have until the end of June to meet that minimum. PLUS Stampin’ Up! don’t mind if your only shopping for yourself, or if your selling to your family and friends, or if you holding great big classes… as long as that minimum is met.

What happens if I drop?

Nothing, Stampin’ Up! do not ask for anything back, I’m not about to come after you… you just return to being a customer rather than a member of the team. You do loose access to Team groups, Stampin’ Up! events, discounts and the other benefits to being a part of Stampin’ Up!

I don’t want to sell, blog or do parties, is that a problem?

No. I would LOVE to welcome you to the team whether you want to be a happy shopper or a business builder. We all love to craft and share… and that’s all that I ask! However, if you do decided to take Stampin’ Up! on as a business I will support you, offer advice and more. I have recently set up an email training series available to every team member when they join (or later on if they choose) to go through business basics, guide you around the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator website, and more…

Where do I sign up?!

You can sign up right now HERE, or if you have more questions do check out my Joining FAQ page, or the Join my Team page.

Sale-a-bration on Wednesday | Time to join in the fun!

Sale-a-bration from Stampin' Up! UK

We are quickly approaching the end of this year’s Sale-a-bration! I cannot believe 2017 is going so quickly already…. how is already March… what happened to February?! anyway, the end of Sale-a-bration is coming, and I don’t want you to miss out!

Sale-a-bration is in 3 parts:

  • SHOP – earn a Sale-a-bration Freebie each time you spend £45 in a single order, earn multiple items by ordering multiples of £45 (for example, if you spend £90 you get two freebies!)
  • HOST – earn an extra £20 in Stampin’ Rewards when you place an order over £200
  • JOIN – Choose 2 stamp sets from the Annual or Spring Summer catalogues for FREE when you grab the starter kit!

The JOIN offer is by far the greatest deal of the year…. the starter kit (I much prefer to call it the Ultimate Stampin’ Bundle!) costs just £99 and it fully customisible with £130 worth of Stampin’ goodies, it also comes with FREE postage and packing, and those 2 stamp sets as an extra! PLUS you then get to be part of something AMAZING!

Can I take a moment to tell you all the wonderful things Stampin’ Up! has done for me…. I joined back in June 2014, partly because I wanted my own business, but more because I LOVE the products, I LOVE crafting and I just wanted to give it a try…. well, almost 3 years later it has totally changed my life! I have done things and been to places I would never have been to, I have found a wonderful bunch of crafty friends, and I have even more opportunities that I thought when I joined in 2014… I am currently working towards a trip, I have been selected for Design Teams, and I I get to play with wonderful crafty goodies without having to pay for them!

I would LOVE to welcome you into my growing group of crafters….my wonderful team get a heap of benefits from me (as well as the great benefits from Stampin’ Up!) including a welcome pack (I’m sharing that tomorrow if you want to see it!), as well as exclusive video tutorials, and access to the videos for my Craft Classes for Free. They also get all the benefits of being in a smaller team, with the bonus of having the support and friendship of a much larger group of crafty friends too.

Team Training Swap

Stampin' Up! UK Number of Years team training swap

This past Sunday I attended Michelle Last’s team training event in Northamptonshire. I LOVE attending Stampin’ Up! events, either corporate organised or events arranged by demonstrators, they are always wonderful and a great excuse to spend the day with lovely people, crafting and eating cake!

I set off from home at 6AM (yes, it felt very early!) and got on completely deserted roads travelling southbound. I did stop once, needed some breakfast! but arrived just after 09:30 in time for our 10AM start.

I have talked before about swaps, and I love swapping crafty ideas with other demonstrators. This time Michelle had asked us to make only 6 swaps, as we swapped in smaller groups to make it a little more manageable for everyone. I’m already planning my swaps for April’s On Stage Local event in Telford, and I have to admit, making 6 swaps was way way quicker than making 40+!

Stampin' Up! UK Number of Years team training swap

Its not very often I use black in my card making, but for me the whole point of attending these events is to push myself out of my comfort zone! So, here I am with a Black card base, Basic Grey embossed panel, and Mint Macaron stamped piece. I think the ‘Look who’s turning’ sentiment is great, and the ‘(again)’ just makes me giggle. My dad celebrates the anniversary of his 21st birthday every year (rather than admit quite how old he is!) and so I think this card might have to make a reappearance for his birthday this year!

Stampin' Up! UK Number of Years 21 again birthday card

I had great fun making these cards as my swap, but not as much fun as I had card making at the event!

Pinkies team training make and takes

One of the great things about attending training days with other demonstrators is getting the chance to use products you haven’t got round to buying yet! and this weekend I used an Aqua painter for the first time, what a difference – they are awesome! I’m not sure that I won’t still reach for my paint brush once in a while, but I am converted! Aqua painters are the way to go!

Stampin' Up! UK Paula Gorry

We were joined by the fabulous Paula Gorry from the Stampin’ Up! UK office at training this weekend, and she was kind enough to bring each and every person a swap card! It’s already on my wall of inspiration 🙂

How you all had a great weekend, I’m sorting out thank you cards and hostess gifts ready for posting tomorrow, probably should get back to it….
