Join Stampin’ Up!

Join to S A V E money…  

join to M A K E money!



Over the past 11 years I’ve been honoured to welcome many papercrafters from all over Australia to my Stampin’ Up! team.

You might be here because you’re thinking about joining and you have some burning questions.

I’ve noticed there are five questions that everyone wants to know. You might even have the same questions, so here they are:   




1. What do I get when I join?


To join Stampin’ Up! you first have to buy a ‘kit’ of products, and from that time on you can get access to all the other benefits and privileges of being part of Stampin’ Up! (including that awesome discount).

As of October 2018, Australians now have the choice of TWO STARTER KITS. There is a choose-your-own kit which is perfect for the crafter who may already have some supplies, maybe wants to make the most of the discount and see where it all takes you. Then there is a new kit is called the Ready, Set, Starter Kit and if you are thinking about turning this into a business then this could be a great kit for you. Regardless of which kit you choose, you will have the same discount and the same opportunities.


‘Choose Your Own’ Starter Kit – $169

YOU can choose what is in your ‘starter kit’ up to the value of $235. You can literally choose anything! As long as it’s a current product, you can add it.

Just remember that you’ll get a 20% product discount after you join, so if you can’t fit everything you want into the $235 value limit, then you’ll soon be able to order them.

NEW (Oct 2018): ‘Ready, Set, Starter’ Kit – $235

Starting 1st October 2018, we’re offering this new, limited-time Starter Kit option for our South Pacific market. This kit will have a set of pre-determined products, which include the suggested Starter Kit, Stampin’ Up! apron, collapsible bin and a $50 coupon code. These specific items have been chosen to give new demonstrators a better foundation on which they can grow their business.

Just remember that you’ll still get a 20% product discount after you join, so if there are things you want to get that aren’t in the kit, you’ll be able to order them yourself after you join. 


  • Coupon codes will be sent by email once the Ready, Set, Starter Kit order has been processed. The email will contain coupon codes valued at $50 AUD total; coupon codes may be separated into multiple codes.
  • Coupon codes expire 30 days after Ready, Set, Starter Kit order has been processed.
  • The Ready, Set, Starter Kit is an additional limited-time option to the standard Starter Kit.

*Remember, unlike the Choose-Your-Own kit the Ready Set Starter kit will include all the items listed on the flyer and there can be no exchanges.

2. What are the benefits?


There are many benefits in becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, including:

  • gorgeous award-winning products (winner of Creating Keepsakes’ Readers Choice award for the best rubber stamps, 9+ years running!),
  • exclusive designs (highly sought-after and only available from a demonstrator),
  • the opportunity to start your own business for minimal investment
  • great discounts (20% – 38%),
  • generous rewards (free stamps, all expenses paid holidays, commissions, pre-order opportunities, gifts and mementos)
  • amazing support (loads of online resources, a monthly magazine and of course Demonstrator Support staff are there for you to help you succeed)
  • become a member of a community of like-minded global demonstrators

3. Do I have to ‘demonstrate’?


No, not at all.

We use the word demonstrators when referring to people who join the Stampin’ Up! community, but that’s just a name. Some other direct sales businesses call them consultants, team members or even distributors. With Stampin’ Up! you don’t have to demonstrate the products, teach classes or sell to other people.

In saying that, it is an incredibly fun and rewarding opportunity and can open up a whole new world of social, financial and emotional benefits. Many of my team members didn’t intend to share the business opportunity or products with others, but you’ll find that these products really do sell themselves in the crafting world so it’s quite possible that others will want to buy what you’re using. Some team members have noticed an increase in their confidence and social network just by sharing the art of stamping – and the wonderful Stampin’ Up! products – with others.




4. What are the sales minimums?


To continue getting the discount and all the other perks (full colour magazine, invitations to demo-only events, etc) you’ll need to place quarterly orders of 300CSV. We call this our sales minimum. 

Ok, so I bet you’re asking: what are ‘quarterly orders’ and what does ‘CSV’ mean? 

The Stampin’ Up! quarters are October to December, January to March, April to June and July to September. You are exempt from any quarterly ordering minimums in your joining quarter, and you are given a one-month grace period if you don’t quite meet your minimums in time.

Ok, so what is CSV? It’s kind of like the Stampin’ Up! unit of currency, but what it is really means is that we can run this business in 10 different countries and all refer to the same ‘numbers’. For example, instead of talking about Aussie dollars here in Australia and Euros for our friends in Germany, we can ALL just talk in terms of CSV. The same! It’s really very clever and makes it fair for everyone. All of us, no matter which country we live in, have a quarterly sales minimum of 300CSV. 

The quarterly minimum of 300 CSV works out to roughly AUD$460 RRP (catalogue price). But remember, you’ll get your demonstrator discount of 20% off that, but your 5%/$5.95 postage costs will be extra. 

So as you can see, it’s really very reasonable.  With a few customers it’s not hard to meet this amount – and many have no trouble doing it on their own! 

What happens if you can’t meet the minimums? You’ll get an extra month to give you a little more time, and then after that you’ll simply stop getting access to the demonstrator website, which means you’ll no longer be able to get the discount. Don’t worry, you don’t have to give anything back or do any paperwork. It’s very simple. And if your circumstances change then you’ll be most welcome to join again. 



5. Why should I join your team? 


In joining my team of “EurekaStampers” you will become a valued member of a supportive, dynamic, positive, friendly, fun and successful group.

Receive a warm welcome and become part of our amazing community.

Have the freedom to do your own thing, knowing that support is there if you need it.  

You will have access to our Team Facebook page, online Resources and Stamping Days.

I have been recognised by Stampin’ Up! for Sales, Recruiting and Leadership awards many times since joining in 2007.

More importantly, I have supported a number of downline demonstrators to reach their own goals, including Top 10 positions and Incentive Trips. I take my role as upline and mentor seriously, but we have plenty of fun!! 


Best of all you will receive my genuine support, ongoing help, prompt replies and as much (or as little) help as you need or want.

I know what it’s like to have a *lot* of questions in the beginning, but you can be assured that I will be here to answer them!

A great feature of Stampin’ Up! is that you have the freedom to choose the type of demonstrator you want to be. Which one would you be?


  • Discount Purchaser (‘Happy Shopper’): Likes buying stamps for personal use at a discount, and sometimes even orders for friends and family. Generally does not teach classes or sell to others.

  • Short-term Demonstrator: Sells for a short time to earn some extra money or build supplies and stops when the goal is reached.

  • Seasonal Demonstrator: Works hard at the business during September, October & November for seasonal money, and maintains minimum orders and sales during the rest of the year.

  • Hobby Business Demonstrator: Loves doing demonstrations/workshops and earning extra money when it’s convenient; Works a lot some months and very little other months; Likes to do workshops that are easy to book; runs occasional classes for friends and family.

  • Career Demonstrator: Views Stampin’ Up! as a viable income with long-term career potential; Loves attending Stampin’ Up! events, and has developed close relationships with other demonstrators; Works at the business in a consistent manner.


You are welcome to join simply to save money on your craft purchases. Or you might like to see where it takes you as you launch your own little business. As you probably already know, the products are top quality. What you may not know is that we have amazing support from our own Demonstrator Support team right here in Australia, as well as the backing of a global company that has operated for 30 years and is debt free. That’s pretty amazing in this day.


By choosing me as your upline, you’ll know that you’re choosing a career demonstrator with more than 11 years’ experience, and a commitment to the company, and most importantly to her team.
