Some of these scrapbook pages were done in club and some were done just for fun. Oh, what am I say? All of them were fun!!! Sorry for some of the blurry pictures. Now there's one that I'm re-posting because I just simply adore it. It's actually the very first one.
If you're thinking about joining my scrapbook club but you would like to see some of the pages we have done in the past, here you go. You can probably find some of these pages in the archives, but I'll save you the problem of searching. Keep checking back because tonight I plan to add more recent pages. Please know that these are older pages. Here you go..............

Becoming a Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator
Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about getting started as a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator.
1. How do I sign up? You must sign up through another demonstrator. This demonstrator is your "upline" and helps you with training, learning techniques and provides any support you need. Make sure you choose a good upline! When you are ready, you can even sign up and do all the paper work at http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/ellenpruett/
2. Why should I choose you as an upline when you live far away? I love stamping and I absolutely love sharing this passion with others. I am dedicated to helping all of my downlines with whatever they need, whenever they need it. Deciding if you want to find an upline that lives close by you or an internet friend like me is a personal choice. Choose what you feel most comfortable with. If you would like to find a demonstrator near you, call the toll free line at 1-800-STAMP UP.
3. How many home demonstrations are required to remain an active demonstrator? There is no number of required demonstrations to remain an active demonstrator, only a $300 in sales per quarter minimum. This sales minimum is not hard to achieve since even your own personal purchases can count towards this sales minimum. When first signing up as a demonstrator, you have a total of 6 months to get your first minimum of $300 in sales.
4. What kind of discount does a demonstrator get? With Stampin’ Up!® you receive a great discount on all stamps and products you purchase for yourself. You may also use that money as instant income. It’s totally your choice. Email me for up-to-date specifics about our current compensation plan or visit http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/ellenpruett/careerplan for more details.
5. How much does it cost to get started? Stampin’ Up!® currently has a great program for becoming a demonstrator. The new kits only costs $175 and contains over $310 worth of materials, including catalogs, paper work, stamps, inks, and much, much more! Stampin’ Up!® also has a promotions periodical where you can earn free stamps as you kick off your home business! Email me for up-to-date specifics about this program.
6. How long does it take to get my kit? Currently, it takes about 1-2 weeks to receive all of your materials. I promise, it’s like getting a Christmas present to your door!
7. Can a demonstrator host her own parties? Yes!! A demonstrator can be the hostess at her own party. This is a wonderful way to earn more stamp sets, water color crayons, cardstock, punches, etc.!
8. Would I be an employee of Stampin’ Up! ? No. You would be an independent contractor and not an employee. You are responsible for paying your own self-employment taxes. You can make your own hours and be as flexible as you wish!
9. What other benefits are there in joining Stampin’ Up!? Stampin’ Up! is a great company to work with. They have great products which really sell themselves. Stampin’ Up! covers the hostess gifts, does not require you to maintain an inventory of products, allows you to sell anywhere in the country, and really supports their demonstrators with fabulous training conferences, conventions, monthly magazines, websites and more. It's so much fun to be able to share something that you love with others! I can truly say that I love being a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!
