You’ll love it when you discover this little secret!

Actually it’s not a secret at all but I do believe it is the absolute best deal in the whole catalog.  The Stampin’ Up! starter kit is a great value at just $99 (plus tax) for $125 in Stampin’ Up! products.  What is even better is that you get to customize your starter kit to get exactly what you want and need.  You will never get stuck with a stamp set or paper that you do not want or like since you get to choose what is included.

But the benefits do not stop there.  As a Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrator you will always get at least a 20% discount on all your supplies (no coupon needed thank you very much) with the opportunity to increase that to a 25% discount as long as you stay active as a demonstrator.  Who does not like a good discount?  I know I sure do.  And let’s face it, if you are into crafts you are going to spend money on supplies. Why not support your habit while saving some money AND have a chance to make a little money as well.

As long time Stampin’ Up! customer I loved their color coordination (makes it so easy to be successful) and the quality of their products.  When I finally took the plunge and signed up as a demonstrator I wondered what had taken me so long.  In addition to getting my discount on all my supplies, I get to pre-order new items before they are available to the general public.  It’s always fun to be one of the “cool kids” who gets to play with the new toys first!  I can also participate in various incentive programs offered by Stampin’ Up! as well as attend Stampin’ Up! events (darn you COVID-19 for wreaking havoc this year!), qualify for incentive trips, and bonuses.  But the BEST part of being a demonstrator is all the wonderful new friends I have met through our love of papercrafting.

When I first started this journey I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I thought I would just give it a try for a few months and see where it led.  I never in a million years would have thought it would bring me so much joy – it has truly been a blessing.  My Crafty Foxes team is one of the best teams around – we always have so much fun when we get together.  We are more than friends – we’re like a family – always there for each other to celebrate the happy times and offer support in the hard times. 

As I continue on this journey I would like to invite you to travel the road with me.  If you like to have fun, craft a bit, laugh a lot, and just enjoy life I’d love to have you join the Crafty Foxes team!  We are always up for answering your questions so drop us an email at craftyklock@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you.  If your ready to join right now, click here and welcome to the team.

You’ll adore the delightful Playful Pets Suite

Ok I’ll admit it – I am the crazy dog lady – after all I have five! I love all my fur babies and the joy they bring on a daily basis. So when I saw the new Playful Pets Product Suite in the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog I just KNEW I had to get it. The Suite includes everything you see in the picture and you can order it with just one item code – #154136 or you can order each item separately. Check out my online store for more information.

Playful Pets Product Suite includes the Pampered Pets Stamp Set and matching dies, Playful Pets Designer Series Paper, Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and Playful Pets Trinkets

While the product suite is perfect for casual and avid stampers, beginning stampers can also have a lot of fun with just the stamp set, card stock, and designer series paper. Check out this cute card I made just using stamps, ink, and paper. It’s #simplestamping at its best!

To really step it up you can use all the products in the product suite to create unique, one of a kind cards for all the pet lovers on your list!

All the elements in the Playful Pets Product Suite can be used to create fun cards for kids of all ages!

And don’t forget to add some pizzazz to the inside. The little paw print die is just perfect for adding a bit of personality to the inside.

You can check out my YouTube video tutorial for instructions on how to make these cards, including dimensions for cutting card stock and designer series paper. You can order the supplies you need from my online store.

Here’s a gratuitous picture of my fur babies! Love them all. Happy Stampin!
