There’s always a learning curve in new ventures. Recently, I’ve been learning more about the world of direct sales through ©Stampin’ Up! It’s ©Stampin’ Up’s 30th Anniversary this year and I’m awe of the quality products. In April I was fortunate to attend the “ON STAGE” event in Fort Worth, Texas.
Seeing ordinary people getting recognized for growing their direct-sales business was electrifying. Those who presented and walked the stage for an outstanding achievement makes me realize that it is all in reach. I’m not talking about movie star people walking that stage! These ladies have what I want and they figured it out. My biggest take away is NOT that they have a special personality or gift, but that they have a “stick to it” attitude. They have paid their dues per se. And yes, some now have huge businesses with a glowing on-line presence; but, it’s not what got them to where they are today. These ladies did the work. They had the gatherings in their homes. They hosted classes in their communities. They stuck with what they knew and that my friend is getting out there in front of people to show them how rewarding it is to watch others create beautiful handmade cards. That’s it my friends. That was my biggest take away from “ON STAGE.” But you know what? I’m going to stick this one out and keep doing the little things to build this little business. After all, I LOVE creating cards and giving them away!
Speaking of creating, here’s some of the cards I’ve created using the latest Paper Pumpkin subscription kit.
The subscription kit for May is called “Manly Moments” just in time to get those Father’s Day cards ready! Everything you need comes in the kit and it’s such a great deal. Only $19.95 a month and that includes shipping!!! This kit makes 20 cards! Yep, 20 cards and they come with coordinating envelopes.

If creating cards is even remotely an interest that intrigues you, please consider becoming a ©Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I’m a new to this, but having a blast learning the ropes. Let me be your encourager. I would love for you to walk this journey with me. And who knows! You could be walking that stage with me next year.
