Welcome Gifts for my new Stampin’ Up! Team

Pootles Welcome Gifts for my new Stampin’ Up! Team

Welcome Gifts for my new Stampin' Up! Team 2

One of the best things about being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is the opportunities that I get every day.  I get to work with cardstock, paper, ink, stamps. All day, every day!  I get to share my creations with all of you. I am humbled to hear that I inspire people to be creative. And I get to welcome people into the Stampin’ Up! world when they choose to become a Demonstrator too.

I do have a FAQ page here on my blog that talks about the various things that you might want to know about being demonstrator as well as a ‘quick guide‘ that tells you about the different way in which you want to be a demonstrator

“You may want to be a discount demonstrator – buying products for your own use with occasional sales to friends or family.

A short term demonstrator to earn extra money for something specific (holiday, christmas)

A Hobby demonstrator, expanding your craft network while demonstrating and socialising

A Mummy demonstrator, work around your family commitments while getting a little ‘me time’ and earning some extra money.

A career demonstrator, working hard to build your business, recruiting and expanding.”

And I have a happy mix of all of the above in my team and what a wonderful group of ladies and gents they are.  The bond between them all is wonderful to see. They support one another, cheer each other on, and encourage on a daily basis.

It was a delight to welcome a lovely group of ladies into my team last month, so I created some special notebooks for them all as part of their welcome gift.

Welcome Gifts for my new Stampin' Up! Team

As you know, I like to create small numbers of cards and gifts for my team so that they are part of a small group of people who have that one design, and these are some of the set of notebooks that I made for them.

These are shopping jotter size notebooks and are decorated with the beautiful English Garden designer series paper and each has the same sentiment from the lovely Garden in Bloom stamp set along with a Pansy Punch flower from Flower Shop.

I used the adorable Washi Label punch and Decorative Label punch for the wording and I was very happy to be combining so many of my favourite tools and supplies for some very special people.

With a calendar quarter having just started last week, this is the optimum time to join! And with a growing team outside the UK, we have Pootlers in France, Holland and Germany too!
