I'm getting ready to CELEBRATE! Order before Halloween ends and get a Treat!

     I'm working on lots of projects to take with me to OnStage!  I'll use these to trade with other demonstrators for the projects they have created.  This will help inspire me to more awesome projects for classes, workshops or card clubs.  I'll share the items I'm making right before I leave next week. #StampinUp30.  While I'm there, I'll also be shown new products and get some new stuff that will be available to y'all in the next catalog.  If I can share any of this, stay tuned here.
      In the meantime, if you put in an order before the end of Halloween thru my website, and use the October hostess code: 6U7XUMHY (if your order is under $150 in product),  I'll give you an extra treat.

     On the topic of classes, workshops and card clubs:  I have 2 customers that would like to start a monthly card club.  To make this work, we need at least 3 more people to commit to the 5 or 6 month club.  The club will meet once a month where we'll make a project or 2, have snacks, and commit to placing a minimum $30 product order before shipping and tax.  Each month a different club member will get the hostess rewards for the party.  If this sounds like something you would like to do, please email me.  Use the subject line of "I want to be in the club".
     If you already know you're creative and would like to have at least a 20% discount to buy supplies to create with, would like to be part of a team, get to see new products early, get to go to wonderfully fun, teach others how to be creative, earn money when they buy from you and maybe earn great trips; then you should consider being an independent Stampin' Up demonstrator and joining my team.  If this sounds like a great idea for you, click here.  You would get a great kit of products of your choosing worth $125 and $50 worth of business supplies all for the wonderful price of $99 and free shipping.  If you want more information, email me.  Use the subject line of  "I need more info about joining your team."  If you join before Halloween is over this year, you'll earn a gift from me.

     Let's celebrate,

Monthly Card Club interest needs more customers

       I have received a new customer who would like to do a monthly card club where a minimum of 5 customers commit to a minimum of 5 months and to spend a minimum of $30 per month on an order.  Each club member would have a turn being the hostess and getting the hostess rewards.  I need at least 3 more people interested in this type of event.  Please Email me with subject of: Yes to monthly Card Club.

     I had a great first team meeting with my 2 downlines Wednesday night.  #StampinUp30.  We enjoyed swaps and a make and take. 

I look forward to having more team members join this team of mine and to have more swaps to get more ideas.  I will be attending OnStage next month to meet other demonstrators and see new products and get more swap ideas and celebrate having been a demonstrator for 15 years and Stampin' Up celebrating 30 years.  If you're interested in getting a discount of at least 20% and having more fun, email me with the subject line of: I want to get the discount.

Let's have fun stamping together,

Trying new things

My first attempt at a wreath done using my Stamparatus. Not perfect, with a few extra ink smudges, but I like it. Colors used were: Poppy Parade, Pineapple Punch, Mint Macaron, Calypso Coral and Highland Heather. Stamp set used was Around the Corner.
Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, indoor
I was just doing it quickly and got a few smears, but it was easy to do and now i can do more of them with a sentiment in the center.

My 4th week challenge - Intro to the experience of being a demo

     Week 4 of the challenge from Stampin' Up to help me share the fun of being a demonstrator has been fun.  I was challenged to put to paper the things I love about the products, the workshops and my memories of being a new demonstrator.  Then to take that and make a 30 second commercial on any type of media for becoming a demonstrator as part of my team. And make a few stamped items to share my contact info and my commercial and hand out a few of them this week.

     Here is my 30 second commercial I printed out and inserted in my stamped card :

               Hi, my name is Tracey Gouraud and I’m an independent Stampin’ Up demonstrator.  I would like to share my story with you and maybe help you to want to join the fun that is Stampin’ Up. 
     Many years ago, a friend kept inviting me to her stamping parties and I declined them because I thought I wasn’t creative or crafty.  She kept inviting me until I caved in.  I went to one party and made the project and tweaked it just a little.  I bought something for my sister who is crafty. After another party, I decided to have my own party and then another.  Then the demonstrator suggested I might want to be a demonstrator. 15 years later, I’m still a demonstrator and having fun being creative and making friendships with others, having fun with the wonderful colorful products, going to conventions and meeting other independent demonstrators from all over the world!  I stepped out of my comfort zone, you can too!
     I designed and made this card and can help you find your creative side and become a demonstrator too.  Just go to my website: and click on Join the Fun.  If you have questions, please contact me.  You’ll be glad you did.

Here's the card I made a few of:

     I'm also getting prepared to go to the convention in Orlando to celebrate Stampin' Up's 30th anniversary and my 15 year anniversary of being a demo!  You could be sharing the fun if you were a demo too!

Stampingly yours,
Tracey Gouraud
