Sweet Summer is my favorite Sale-a-bration set – well, maybe it’s tied for that honor with BLISS. Last week I saw a fabulous card made by a friend on the RemARKables team and had to make one for myself:
- Sweet Summer Sale-a-bration stamp set
- Whisper White, Pear Pizazz and Concord Crush card stock
- Pear Pizazz, Concord Crush, Melon Mambo and Real Red classic ink pads
- Aquapainter and So Saffron Stampin’ Write marker
- Real Red 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon
- Love Impressions rub ons
Regina Cornelius designed this card, and though I made a few changes you can see I was true to her concept. I’ve just realized that I forgot to give the bees their little vapor trails, and I’ll have to go back and fix that oversight. Regina and I participate in a forum that Janet Wakeland, my 5th level upline, offers for support and training.
If’ you’re not a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, all this talk about teams and groups may be a little confusing. Stampin’ Up! is a direct sales company, which means each person who “signs up” to sell/distribute Stampin’ Up! products is, in the company’s language, “An Independent Demonstrator”. That means we own our business instead of working for Stampin’ Up!, and part of our business plan includes sharing the Stampin’ Up! business opportunity with other people. When someone decides to become an Independent Demonstrator, they sign up through an existing demonstrator and become part of her team or group, or “downline” as the Stampin’ Up! terminology goes. It gets a little confusing, but the end result is that this type of organization creates a lot of opportunity for friendship, collaboration, and education. If you’d like to learn more, send me a message and I’ll be glad to tell you about the Maui Stampers – you don’t have to live on Maui to be one!
