About once a month I work at the Just Crop Retreat teaching rubber stamping to a lovely group of scrapbookers. I look forward to seeing these ladies every month. Sharing new tips and techniques with them challenges me to keep coming up with new ideas.
One of our Make & Takes for tomorrow uses the Varied Vases stamp set, which was designed by another Stampin Up Demonstrator. Did you know that is one of the perks of being a Demonstrator? You get to design a stamp set that will be in our Catalog! Unfortunately, not every Demonstrator gets to do this… it’s reserved as a special treat for those Demonstrators that reach $1,000,000 in sales over their career. Of course, you know I’m counting down until I get to design my own stamp set. I only need about $900,000 more in sales and I’m there! 🙂
All joking aside, this is a really special thing that Stampin Up does. If you go through the Catalog, look for the sets with the $1,000,000 icon next to them. Those are the ones designed by our Million Dollar sellers.
Back to tomorrow’s Make & Take…Wow! Such a simple, classy look. There are several different vases and flowers to choose from in this stamp set, which means you can literally make hundreds of different combinations of flowers and vases. The background sheet is our plain, smooth card stock. I used our brand new Subtle embossing folder and it is gives it a lovely texture that isn’t overwhelming.
Stampin Up has two great promos this month. The first is an amazing offer for brand new Demonstrators.
