Haitian Disaster Relief

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. As a Stampin′ Up! demonstrator, I can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing, and more importantly selling, the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.

From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set I sell will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

Product Name – Item # – Price
I {Heart} Hearts – clear-mount (block D recommended) 118571 $18.95
I {Heart} Hearts – wood-mount 117010 $26.95

What is a Stamper’s 10 Club? Think of the Stamper’s 10 Club as a way to get everything from your Stampin’ Up! Wish List slowly and affordably – and some of it even for free! Updating your home Decor? You can order Decor Elements in this club too! New designs are always being released.

What do you have to do? Call me or e-mail me with a Stampin’ Up! order totaling $15 or more once a month for just 10 months! There is no club fee, the money you spend is only in Stampin’ Up! Product.

How does it work? There will be 10 people in each club and each club will last for 10 months. Since there are 10 people spending at least $15, every club order is guaranteed to total $150 — the minimum order amount needed to earn free stamp sets and products from Stampin’ Up! Since there are 10 people and 10 months, this allows each of the club members to take a turn picking out free product. On average, club members receive around $40 in free Stampin’ Up! Product just for being in the club!

When does it run? The plan is to have this group run from August 2009- May 2010.

How and when do I get my order? A date each month will be decided to come to my house. If you cannot make it you can call or e-mail me with your order and pay by Money Order, Check, Credit Card or Paypal. The orders and payment are due on the 15th of every month.

Do I have to attend anything or host a workshop? No! You are under no obligation to attend or host anything! Of course, you can if you want to! I will have a date each month you can come to my house as a group.

I live out of state or long distance. Can I still be in a club? Absolutely!! You will just be charged an additional $2 per month to help with the extra shipping costs.

What are some other club benefits? If the FREE Hostess Exclusive Stamp Sets and FREE Shopping Dollars aren’t enough for you, there are some other club benefits as well.

Check them out:
FREE Idea Book & Catalog (a $9.95 value!!!)
Receive FREE Mini Catalogs directly in the mail from Stampin’ Up! Headquarters—fresh off the press!

All club members will receive $5 off all classes and stamp camps that I teach in my home (if you are a long distance customer, you will be able to purchase my classes “By Mail” and receive a $5 discount off the “Class by Mail” Price.)

How can I join? The stamp club will start the first month after 10 people are signed up. Until then the cost to make three cards each month is $5. Just e-mail me to let me know you are interested! But space is limited, so contact me today! If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

You are welcome to invite others to any of the classes and also gather outside orders for the month that you hostess to increase your rewards!
