YouTube Account Changed

Hey Scrappers

Wow have I been busy!   I am getting settled into my new role as a Stampin Up Demonstrator!  I have done a couple videos and this one is my latest.  It is my very first tutorial video!  Wow I had to do 5 cards to get it right.  Cuddos to those who have done many videos and make it look very easy!  I am sure it will get easier with time and more videos LOL!  At least now I have figured out how to upload them without dozens of failed attempts!  I hope you enjoy the video and I will have more to come. 

If you have subscribed to my youtube account, I have had technical difficults and can't log in to my shargod account anymore.  After trying everything I can think of, I finally gave up and created a new account. You can still see my old account I just can't add anything to itI am sorry for any inconvenience this might cause but I hope you will check out my new youtube account.

My new account is

Until next time
Happy Stampin!

Bargain Alert - Check Out My Stampin Up Starter Kit

Hey Scrappers and Stampers!

I just got my Stampin Up Starter Kit and wanted to take the opportunity to show you what comes in it. I customized my starter kit and chose stamp sets and ink pads based on that I already had in my supplies. I still can't believe that Stampin Up is going to offer their Stampin Up Starter Kits for only $87.50 from Nov 15 thru the 30th! If you have ever thought of becoming a demonstrator now is the best time to do so. Stampin Up has never offered this kit at such a low price. It is valued at $310 and you can get it for only $87.50! That is why I am making it my bargain alert.

If you are like me, I thought to be a Stampin Up Demonstrator you had to do workshops in other peoples homes and club meetings at my house. But in reality many become demonstrators simply for the savings on all their Stampin Up supplies. Even as a Demonstrator, when you make an order you get the same benefits as a hostess! I placed my first order yesterday and when I hit continue it prompted me to select free products! I thought.. I did do this order as a Demonstrator didn't I?? I talked to my upline Demonstrator and she said it wasn't a mistake if you spend at least $150 you get a free stamp set! Duh I would have done this a long time ago had I known all that. LOL  The more you buy the more you get free plus you get 30% off your first order if you order it within 45 days of becoming a Demonstrator.  After that you get 20% off all products and promotions!  You will get 8 catalogs in your starter kit, just give them to your scrapping friends or family and let the products sell themselves. 

I had thought about doing this for a long time and didn't want to harrass my friends and family into hosting parties and trying to get them to buy stuff from me.  But my friend gave me a catalog and I realized I wanted this stuff and she didn't say anything about to me about it.  It literally sold itself and even if I don't make much money doing this, I will get a great discounts and help support my own addiction..oops I mean hobby.  LOL

Email Me if you would like to get more information about Stampin Up or ready to start saving money on your Stampin Up products by becoming a demonstrator.   Check out the next article to find links to geting your own starter kit!
