Celebrating My 15th Stampaversary All August 2020

Happy 15th Anniversary Month from Sandy with Needs A Ribbon!


I started stamping at my first party at my cousins house (Hi Ann) in September 2003. It was that demonstrators first in home party, Denise, who is now my direct upline. I joined one of her monthly clubs shortly after that. And my March of the following year I knew I wanted to be a Demonstrator. It was just not quite the right time in my life or my family’s. I held to my promise to her that I would join eventually. I was her first downline, joining on August 26, 2005, right after my family got back from a 3 week vacation. It was a fantastic vacation by the way.


My only intention early on, was that I loved the product, loved getting a discount on the product, and knew when I made the decision I wanted this to be a forever choice. 


My own first downline happened in January of 2010, Connie, who is still a dear friend. I have had many team members over the years, currently I have a team of 8 plus me. And I am happy to say I am still in contact with all my past team members too. 


So 15 years later, here I am. How many of you can say you have been at the same job for 15 years, let alone a Direct Selling company? Yeah, I thought so. Not too many of you. That is how strongly I felt about joining. I have been to so many national conventions, 8 national events, about a dozen regional events, the first one something like a week after I joined. I have attended almost every local group meeting. I was invested in this. And I still am. 


Read the full story here.


In order to properly celebrate such big anniversary I have come up with some fun things that will be happening throughout the month! In a different world I would probably hold a big fun party. For the record, we call stamping anniversaries, Stampaversaries. Silly, I know!


Here is the rundown of events and specials:


·      15 prizes during the month!

·      15 Coffee Break videos!

·      Orders over $150 (host level order) receive a FREE card kit from me. 

·      Special gift for joining this month! 

·      Occasional LIVE videos on my Facebook Page. 

·      And there might be more!


15 Prizes during the Month – for every $25 in merchandise you order this month, I will put your name in for a chance to win. No limit to entries. The more you spend the more chances you have to win! Just remember, that Mini Fall/ Holiday catalog comes out August 4th next week! 


Coffee Break – Can we talk? Starting this month I am changing up my video format a bit. Most of my videos will be in a 15 minute or less video format, the standard coffee break time. So grab a quick break and watch what I make. Project recipes will be posted in the video. Videos will be uploaded to YouTube with links to my website and Facebook. I am excited to try this shorter format. I hope you like it too. They will be on the Coffee Break Playlist. Nope, nothing up yet, until the month gets started.


Host Orders: You are your own host anytime you place a single order of $150 or more. This means you get host rewards too. No need to have a party. I love that even as a Demonstrator, we can be our own host! Using Host Rewards is often how I get items I wouldn’t normally spend money on. So when you place a qualifying order this month, I will send you a card kit! What kind of card kit? Well, they will all be different. And I am not saying any more than that! 


Join My Team – I am offering a special one time only gift for people who join my team this month. It’s $99 to join (plus tax only) and you get $125 in product plus all the stuff like catalogs and such. If you are a regular shopper with me, have you ever considered joining? Even for just a few months? Why or why not? There is no obligation to stick around when you join (same thing I kept in mind 15 years ago). And look at me now. I love the people on our team, and greater team. These are my friends, my family! It hard to imagine life without them. So my gift is ready to deliver to you as soon as you hit submit on that join button. And it is pretty and useful and beautiful! Don’t forget you get that discount forever when you join! JOIN


LIVE – I will be live on my Facebook page from time to time this month, for drawings and more. If you do not follow me I recommend you do so now so you can get early notice if you have won a prize. Or I may pop on with other fun projects or prizes or who knows. 


I am excited to get this month started! 


I have not yet figured out how to notify you when a new video is up. I suggest that if you do not follow me on YouTube or Facebook, to get on over there and start, rather than me send out emails with every one. That would get highly annoying. I have most of the projects ready and they are CUTE! FOMO – Fear of Missing Out!!! Follow today.  


This happens the entire month of August 2020, First – the 31st online.


Thank you for a great 15! Some of you have been with me since day 1! I cherish you! Stay safe. Stay well. And get watching, in just a few hours.


Love and peace and your creative bad self, Sandy
