Workshops and Classes

I run 3 kinds of Classes and I also do traditional Workshops (or "Parties")

A Workshop is free. A Hostess (that could be you!) holds the event, sends out invitations and provides simple refreshments. I demonstrate 3 projects (usually a box and 2 cards, or a box, a card and a Scrapbook page) and everyone gets to make one. Orders are placed, and the Hostess can earn Hostess benefits - free Hostess-only stamp sets and merchandise from the catalogue!

A Stamp-a-Stack is exactly as it sounds - the group get to make a stack of cards in a short amount of time. They can be held in my home or yours, and starts at a cost of $10 for 6 cards, but this can be adjusted to suit the time-frame and the groups needs. You can see some Stamp-a-Stack designs HERE

A Technique Class is where you can learn more complex Stamping Techniques. You can make 2 cards for $15, and take home technique notes too. You can see some examples of Technique Classes I have run HERE.

A Project Class is where you make a 3D item like a set of cards and matching box. These vary in price, depending on the materials used. You can see some examples HERE.

You can view my current class schedules in the sidebar of my blog or in the event Calendar of my Stampin' Up! website.

Email me if you would like to book a class either at my home (in Dundas, near Carlingford NSW) or yours!

Stampin' Up! Needs All Kinds of Demonstrators...Would you like to build a fun and flexible business where you can share your creativity with others? Stampin' Up! is a flexible, fun business that you can build to suit your own needs. I am a Manager with a small friendly team of over 40 lovely ladies from all over Australia that is growing all the time. I offer lots of support to help you meet your personal goals, whether they are to buy products at a discount, pay for your hobby, or earn some extra income. For more information regarding Stampin' Up! please email me for a FREE Information Pack.

I have had an amazing 3 years with Stampin' Up! and I'd love to show you how you can too!

Are You Ready?
Take a moment to answer five simple questions to find out!
1. Do you love to stamp, and love stamping with others?
2. Do you enjoy meeting new people and making new friends?
3. Do you regularly buy stamps and accessories, and would you enjoy getting a 20% discount?
4. Would you like to work from home, and have the chance to contribute to your family's income?
5. Would you love to be your own boss?

If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, you'll love being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

Finding a Perfect Fit
When I joined Stampin' Up (waaay back in May 2006), I ummm-ed and ahh-ed, and did all the should-I-shouldn't-I's that I think everyone does when they make this decision. What silly me didn't realise was that I was asking myself the wrong question! Of course I should join...that's an easy decision to make. What did I have to lose? I buy the Starter Kit, and get all these great products that I really want for nearly half's a no-brainer. The bigger decision (and one that I never even thought to ask myself) was who should I sign up under? Lucky me fell on my feet, and I happen to have a great Upline, but I shudder to think what would have happened if I'd signed up Direct to Company (which you could do back then), or under someone else. So, if you're thinking of signing up, do your research! Some things you may like to think about are:

  • How important is locality to you? If you aren't on the computer a lot, and learn better face-to-face, you'll want to find an Upline who lives nearby.

  • Personality match! If possible, meet your potential Upline in person and see if you click.
    Stamping Finesse. If you want an Upline that you can learn Stamping skills from, find someone whose style you admire.

  • Business Wise. If you do want to make money from this, find an Upline who has success in her own business, so you have footsteps to follow in.

  • Group Support. If you want to make new stamping friends, look for an Upline with strong team support, such as team meetings or a forum.

I get a lot of emails from other Demonstrators, bemoaning their own lack of Upline Support, so learn from their mistakes, and make sure you find a Perfect Fit!

About Me!

My name is Marelle Taylor, and this is my place to share papercraft creations with the world.

I joined Stampin' Up! in May 2006, just one month after they started business in Australia. I love the products, so buying the Starter Kit was an easy decision, but at the time I had no idea of the journey it would take me on. Today, I run 3-4 classes per week from my home, and I also run Workshops in other people's homes. I have a team of over 40 lovely ladies that is growing all the time. I just love the flexibility that Stampin' Up! offers for my lifestyle and my family.

In 2009 I was amazed to be ranked 8th place Demonstrator of the year, I achieved the Level 2 Recruiting Award, the 80K Sales award, and also the Incentive Trip to Noosa. I was ranked 3rd in Australia for Sales, and I also achieved my 100K Milestone Award.
All of this was only made possible by the wonderful network of friends, customers and team members that Stampin' Up! has brought me in touch with.

I'm loving every day and I can't wait to see what my Stampin' Up! future holds!
