Butterfly Bag using Stampin’ Up! Thinlits

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Butterfly Bag using Stampin’ Up! Thinlits

I am a very lucky girl this week. A couple of days ago, while I was designing boxes, the doorbell went and it was the postman with a huge parcel for me. Inside was the stunning tote bag in the video. It was a gift to me from one of my talented team members Karen MacDonald! I adore working with my team and sending them little treats and surprises, and she wanted to do the same for me! And it immediately inspired me to make the bag that’s inside today’s video.

I wanted to take a few moments today too to have a chat about the wonders of being a demonstrator. As an upline, I have a remarkable team and get endless pleasure from working with them and they inspire me every day.

Being a demonstrator is as much as you want it to be.

At the time of writing, I have 139 demonstrators in my direct team across the UK, Germany, France, Austria and The Netherlands! Yes, all 5 of our European countries are represented inside my team! And 14 of those demonstrators have joined me in the last 2 weeks – clearly loving the amazing joining offer.

You see, it’s the ultimate shopping bundle! You have £99 to spend, but you can choose anything you want upto £130 and then choose 2 more stamp sets as well! Any stamp sets! In fact, the whole lot is your choice! And to make it even sweeter, this comes with free shipping too, saving another £4.95!

So you’re getting up to £227.95 worth of goods and delivery for only £99. Now you can see why it’s such a bargain (and for my European friends, here you go in Euros – €126 spend for €175 worth of products plus 2 more stamps up to €126 in value and a saving of €6.95 shipping – total spend €126, total products and delivery valued at upto €307.95

And now you can see why there are so many people jumping on board! Our whole team has introduced 39 people so far this month and not one of them is under any pressure to do anything they don’t want. Some have joined just to get this amazing value bundle, others are selling their finished supplies at craft fayres. some are already blogging and youtubing so this is an extension for them, and others plan to do events and fayres.

The choice is yours!

So today I am showing off a wonderful gift from one of my team, who has a team of her own too. She’s come a long way in the last 18 months!

  1. Lovely decorative bag! I haven’t used my butterfly thinlits for a long time, and this would be perfect. Also love the bag that was gifted to you.

    Aw what a whole bunch of kind words my lovely! We’re a very lucky team to have you too xx
    I’m loving your inspiration and am glad ‘my’ bag arrived when it did. Perfect timing, it seems! I feel I have to make one of ‘your’ bags to match ‘my’ bag too!
