Join the fun!

Join the fun!

https://ida.stampinup.com/en-gb/?demoid=5018429


So today I thought I would talk about how to join my team! It doesn’t matter if you’re in the UKAustriaFranceGermany or The Netherlands, I am building a fully international team.


Joining Stampin' Up! is one of the best decisions you can ever make in your life. Whether you want to do this as a business or just buy for yourself and your own hobby there is something for everyone! 

You can simply join just for the starter kit which is the best deal in the catalogue or you can stick with it and see if this is the business for you. 

My team are affectionately known as 'Charleyz Stampin' Angelz'. I would be beyond honoured if you joined under me. Simply click on the image above to join now! We have a dedicated facebook group and meet up as often as possible. If you aren't close enough to catch up then there is always phone, skype, facebook live, periscope, email, text and I am sure thousands more options.

As well as my direct team there is also our extended team which have their own facebook page so there is always someone to talk to and ask questions. There are always new people joining so you are never alone. 

I have also started a facebook group for disabled demos and I have created a disabled access guide to all events. There is support from so many people. Demonstrator support are quite honestly the greatest customer service I have EVER encountered. 

Benefits to being a demonstrator -
  • The generous demonstrator discount (20-25 percent).
  • Flexibility in setting your own hours and working from home.
  • Support from creative resources like a quarterly magazine, a demonstrator website filled with training, Stampin' Connection, and Demonstrator Business Web Services.
  • Beautiful, exclusive artwork and high-quality products for you and your customers.
  • A low-cost, high-value Starter Kit.
  • Opportunities to see and purchase new Stampin' Up! products first.
  • The Quick Start programme, where new demonstrators can earn additional flex points.
  • Stampin' Up! events, where you stamp, learn, and have a blast with your fellow Stampin' Up! lovers!
  • A worldwide stamping family!
FAQ's about being a demonstrator


What are the minimum sales requirement?
You only need to submit 300 CSV (commissionable sales volume) per quarter (3 months). That is less than the average Stampin’ Up! Workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive a 20 percent discount and commission (or 25 percent if you have come apparently or above).


What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily as a business?

Stampin’ Up! Supports all demonstrators, no matter that out all the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops you can simply place your own orders and talk like orders from family and friends equal quarterly minimum sales


Can I be my own hostess?
Yes, you can do your own house anytime you want. Invite your family and friends into your home and have a workshop. You will be the hostess, receiving the Stampin’ Rewards, as well as the demonstrator receiving your instant income and commission.

How much does it cost to get started as a demonstrator?
The starter kit is only €129/£99 and is fully commissionable. You choose up to €175/£130 worth of any current Stampin’ Up! products, and you also receive a business supplies pack containing materials you need to run your business valued at €30/£25 PLUS free shipping.

How can I make money as a demonstrator?
You can earn money in three ways: instant or deferred income (20 or 25 percent of each order), monthly volume rebate (4-13 percent of total monthly sales), and monthly team conditions (1 to 6.5 percent of your recruit sales).

Do I have to recruit at the demonstrators?
No. If you were to recruit demonstrators, you would be paid commissions on your team’s sales, but this is a perk, not requirement.

Where will I get project ideas for my workshops? What kind of training tonight expect?
Stampin’ Up! provides dozens of training resources filled with project ideas and tips to help you in every aspect of your business, including a quarterly publication called Stampin’ Success, demonstrating support agents, a demonstrator-only website, and annual and seasonal catalogues.

Is Stampin’ Up! well-known respected company?
Since 1988, Stampin’ Up! has been selling stamps and paper-crafting supplies. In that time, not only have we won industry awards and accolades, but also the loyalty of demonstrators and customers alike. And that is a trend that we work hard to maintain. You can rest assured that the reputation of Stampin’ Up! Will only continue to improve. The company celebrated its 10th year in Europe in 2017 and will be celebrating its 30th year in the US in 2018.

What if I decide I don’t like it once I started? Will I be penalised if I quit?
You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalised. You simply stop placing orders. However, there are many benefits to remaining an active demonstrator. If you have any questions about Stampin’ Up! Or becoming a demonstrator please contact me Charley Zakrzewski aka Creating With A Difference.

Another great bonus to becoming a demonstrator is that you get to keep your starter kit even if you leave straight away. The quarter that you signed up in is classed as a grace period therefore you don’t have to start meeting your minimums until the second quarter. That means you have some thinking time whilst playing with all your goodies. I have beena demo 3 times and this has been the first time I have done this as a business. The first two I was just a hobby demo.

So, what is it?! Well this is the brand new tool from Stampin' Up! It is the best stamp placement tool on the market. You can pop over to my online shop and reserve yourrs now.

You don't have to pay for the tool until February when Stampin' Up! will email you to notify you it is availabe to purchase and ship. The stamparatus is only £44 which is a great competative price!

Reservation time will end but the item will become available again next year in a new catalogue. If you want to be one of the first and not have to wait then reserve now! 


I got to see this gadget in person when I attended onstage local last weekend. Its amazing. I have reserved two! 

Customer Stamparatus Launch Q & A
Q: How do I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: Normally you order Stampin’ Up! products through the online store; in this case, you will click the RESERVE link on the Stamparatus page which will take you to the reservation page. For step-by-step instructions, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers.
Q: What if I do not have a Stampin’ Up! customer account?
A: To reserve a Stamparatus, you must have a customer account. To create one, click Create Account on the online store.
Q: Why does it take so long for the Stamparatus to ship?
A: We will place an order with the manufacturer based on how many reservations are made during any given reservation window. Shipping dates depend on how long it takes the order to arrive in our warehouse after the tools have been manufactured.
Q: Will the available-to-ship dates be the same for all markets?
A: Yes.
Q: Am I billed at the time I reserve my Stamparatus?
A: No. You will be billed when you finalise and close your order.
Q: When will I be charged for the Stamparatus?
A: When inventory arrives in the warehouse, we will add your reservation to a shopping cart. We will then send you an email notifying you that your Stamparatus order is ready. At this time you will pay for and finalise your order.
Q: Will I be able to add other products to my Stamparatus reservation?
A: No. However, once your reservation is transferred to your shopping cart, you will then be able to add other items to your order. Important note: Please do not delete the Stamparatus from your order. We will not be able to add it back and you will lose your reservation.
Q: Will I be able to update my address when I open my shopping bag to complete my order?
A: Yes.
Q: What if I change my mind and want to cancel my reservation?
A: You can cancel your reservation at any time. To cancel, please see the How to Reserve Your Stamparatus Tutorial for Customers PDF.

A: Yes. Once the annual catalogue ordering period begins, you will be able to order the Stamparatus as you would any other product. Reservations will no longer be required, and there will be no limit on the number of tools you can order.
Q: Once the Stamparatus has been added to my shopping cart, how long will it stay there?
A: Indefinitely. As with all products, it will be subject to temporary interruptions in availability depending on demand.
Q: When I close my order, can I take advantage of current Stampin’ Up! promotions?
A: Yes.
Q: Can I participate in all three reservation periods?
A: Yes.
Q: How many stamp placement tools can I reserve per reservation window?
A: For customers, there is a limit of 1 per reservation window.
Q: How did we come up with the name Stamparatus?
A: We landed on an innovative name by combining two words that speak to the end use of the tool as well as Stampin’ Up! branding.
Stamp: To impress a pattern or mark (especially an official one) on a surface, object, or document using an engraved or inked block or die or other instrument
Apparatus: The technical equipment or machinery needed for a particular activity or purpose
Stamp + Apparatus = Stamparatus

Pootles Cased Bag

Pootles Cased Bag




Hello lovelies!

Today's project is one I have cased from my lovely upline Sam aka Pootles. There is a matching video tutoria today. 

Click HERE for the video.

Need a piece of DSP that measures -
6 x 6 inches that's 15 x 15cm

Score at 1 3/4 inches, 2 3/4 inches, 4.5 inches and 5.5 inches
Rotate at 90 degrees and score at 1 inch

That's - 
Score at 4.45cm, 7cm, 11.45cm and 14cm
Rotate at 90 degrees and score at 2.5cm

Cut up the squares and adhere together. Then pinch in the top and close with a binder clip. The sides will naturally curve in but they may need a little help. 

Stamp your sentiment and stick onto the front of the bag with dimensions.

Kids Pretty Pencils

Kids pretty Pencils

Hello lovely crafters!

Today I am bringing a really cute project I have been meaning to do for over a year but kind of forgot I bought the pencils and found them recently.





Here is where you can find some on amazon. I bought mine in a local shop in the UK called Wilko!

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B074QRCB3F/ref=cm_sw_r_em_api_c_ocwYzb9XDNGVV
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XY4SKCB/ref=cm_sw_r_em_api_c_6bwYzbJK5VJYP
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B002GO4964/ref=cm_sw_r_em_api_c_EbwYzbCT582XV


I just measured mine and cut two bits of DSP to fit the base and lid. I then coloured the rim of the top and bottom with my ink pad and then marker for those curves. This gives the pencils a pretty finish for those bits that don't fit DSP. I also punched two circles for the top and bottom. 2 x 1 inch circle punch and 2 x 1 1/4 circle punch.

I used pool party as it's in the DSP I have used. My DSP has retired so I have linked to some alternatives below.
