Happy New Year with the Starter Kit

Hello stampers. I thought I better write a blog post or you will think I have up and died!!! It has been way too long since I have posted but what can you expect when you are moving into a new house, ending a marriage, trying to celebrate Christmas and get your business set up in the new place? I have to admit that it is finally catching up to me. I suppose it is a little bit like a funeral. Thankfully I have not yet had anyone in my immediate family die, but I have heard that you get through all that needs to be done and when it is all over that is when you crash. That is how I feel now. I got through the move just fine, settled in quickly, set up for my clearance sale, had a fantastic coffee and a card class, got all the Christmas baking done and the presents bought and then I hit a wall. Physically exhausted and emotionally drained.


I do want to thank each and everyone of you who have sent me private messages, cards and letters and comments on my blog or on my Facebook page. You have been a source of great encouragement, strength and joy. My stamping family means so much to me!


I just want to let you know that I am taking a much needed break and am going to the Netherlands for 17 days to visit family and friends. I am not sure if I will be blogging from there since I will most likely only have my phone with me. My motto is work hard play hard, so when I do take a break I really do shut down the work part. It is often easier said than done because when you stop posting, blogging and teaching classes you feel like you are letting people down, sabotaging your business and not being very smart. The other way of looking at it is that it is very important self-care. I need to practice what I preach so if I tell you here that I am going to take a break, you can hold me accountable.


I am going to offer an incentive to all of my customers that if you want to jump on the bandwagon of the awesome sale-a-bration sale when it starts on January 3, I will give you a $25 gift certificate in the form of an e-transfer to you when you place a $100 online order (before shipping and tax) using the current host code. To give you a visual I will share the coupon I handed out to attendees at my clearance sale. Those that qualified for a coupon that day will get another bonus for me since I am now making this available to everyone.



Sale-a-bration is also the best time of year to join my team. You get an extra $60 in product to add to your starter kit. You can customize your kit with whatever products you want, even things from the clearance rack. If you love our new Craft and Go tote you can pick that option as well. In that case you will get the tote for only $40 instead of $68. I am planning to have a DIVA day in March where all my new team members can come and craft for a day as well as get some simple training as to what you can do with your starter kit. Use new products, meet new team members and get all your questions answered. Of course we will also share a wonderful lunch together. I did this for the first time last year and it was a huge success. We also have monthly team gatherings where we also have a lot of fun crafting together and talking shop over food and drinks.



Here is a little glimpse at my new house, the kitchen and the stamp room. I hope you can come and see me when I get back from my trip.


This is where the treats are made for The Pampered Stamper



Finally here is my bathroom, the perfect place to totally relax. I am blessed indeed!


Finally, here is a peek at the beautiful craft and go tote that you can get in your starter kit. To make it even easier for you, here is the link so you can spoil yourself on January 3. It is a year of new beginnings for me, so why not have a new beginning yourself?

I look forward to resuming classes again on Wednesday January 16 with Blends Club. There will be coffee and a card classes while I am away taught by my talented team member Yvonne Macfadyen. Cost for this class is going up in the new year to $15 for three cards and refreshments. Team members get a discount and will pay $12. If you bring someone new you get a free class voucher. Special needs customers pay $20. (those that need one on one help or come with a case worker).


I wish you all a very happy New Year. I am excited for what this year holds for each and every one of us. Blessing to you. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.


Why join my team?

Hello stampers. Did you know that one of the main reasons I started my blog was to connect with you? I also wanted to grow my team across Canada. I so love what I do that I want to share this with as many people as possible. Our motto at Stampin’Up! is “inspire.create.share.” So I am inspired to share this with you. We have such beautiful products to create with and it is so hard to limit yourself to just one or two, so why not get a discount so you can truly unleash your creativity?

The beautiful thing is that you can just get the starter kit with no strings attached. There really is nothing to lose. Nothing at all. You simply copy and paste this link¬†https://ida.stampinup.com/en-ca/?demoid=2000062 and your fun journey will begin. You get to pick out $165 of products, but before you do that you will be prompted to choose two FREE stamp sets as a bonus during sale-a-bration which lasts till March 31. Then you get to pick whatever you want. Ink pads, stamp sets, tools, it doesn’t matter. But you cannot even go over by a penny, so choose carefully. Don’t worry too much about it though, because you can place another order after your starter kit and you will not only get 20% instant income, you will also be able to earn hostess benefits (10%) and free sale-a-bration products ( a free item with every $60 you spend).

Now is the best time to join my team "Beyond Pampered" Simply go to www.thepamperedstamper.stampinup.net and click on join the fun.


So did you guess what the best deal in the catalog is? Yes, it is the starter kit. And the value is that high (not including the catalogs you will get- 8 annual catalogs, 8 Occasions catalogs and 8 sale-a-bration catalogs plus 50 order forms) because you get to pick two free stamp sets out of any current catalog. Some of the larger wood stamp sets are $68. If you look at the index at the back of the annual catalog you can quickly see the prices of the various sets. This will help narrow your choices.

What to do with all those catalogs you will get with your kit? You may as well at least try to get your hobby to pay for itself, so hand out those catalogs and tuck in an order form. Spread the joy. Everyone needs a hobby that is meaningful to get them through the stresses of life. This hobby is extra special because it also makes other people happy when they receive your handmade cards or projects.

I am also very happy to come and teach your first class for you so that you can introduce your people to your new hobby as long as you are within a few hours driving distance from me. Otherwise I will coach you in a video chat if that is what you would like. Or you can just happily play with your new products all by yourself. That is the beauty of it, it is your kit, your way.


Get the Stampin'Up starter kit and join an amazing community of people. Fuel your creativity with your very own discount. If you live in Canada, you can join my team today. I would love to support you in your goals and dreams.


Are you inspired to begin your journey? Click here. I only wish that I had joined sooner, that someone would have explained that I could get the starter kit just for my own fun. The opportunities are endless. Since I have begun 11 years ago, I have met many people who have become lifelong friends, people from all over the world. People I have met in my own classes, but also fellow demonstrators I have met a conventions and on trips. My life is so much richer because of my Stampin’Up! experience. The latest blessing was being announced the number ten demonstrator in all of Canada!! Wow, what an amazing surprise that was. More on that in my next post. For now I just want to encourage you to think about investing in yourself. It is a very small investment that could change your life.

I hope that you will consider being a part of my team. We meet on the second Thursday night of each month at 7:30 to party, to create and to get to know each other better. In February I am having two team retreat days at a beautiful cottage near Rondeau Park in southern Ontario. On Saturday February 18 and Monday February 20. If you are coming from out of town we can arrange for full weekend accommodations!

That’s all for now, I hope you have a fantastic day.

Hugs, Jackie
