        Door Hanger Poem

        For those of you who are   Stampin' Up! demonstrators,. I thought I might post this Door Hanger Advertisement Poem. I have made several 100 of these and put them around my neighborhood, as well as other homes in my community.

        Feel free to use this poem to help you increase your business. I did CASE this idea, but the poem has been changed to suit my needs....

        This poem will find on a 11 x 8 1/2 pc. of Card Stock. I use a 1 3/4" Circle Punch for the hole so that you can place the poem advertisement on doors. I didn't decorate this poem, but you could decorate it with a border stamp, or any other stamps of your choice. I have, in the past, decorated these door hanger poems to reflect the seasons or the holidays.

        It's A gift to you, what I do

        Go to my website for fun things to make,

        You won't regret it, that's no mistake

        Come to my classes & bring a friend,

        To you a free gift I will send.

        Book a workshop & earn free stuff.

        Your place or mine, there's not much fuss!

        Scrapbooking or Card-Making, It's your choice,

        Now don't hesitate, let me hear your voice!!

        E-mail or call me, let's have some fun,

        Bring your friends to a class, we'll have a blast !

        Hope you enjoy it.
        The 2nd photo is of the inside of the card, I used a retired sentiment set for both sides of the card.

        Tuesday's Timely Tips

        This is a few things that you can do to help increase your business.....As I have said before you need to put your info on EVERY E-MAIL you send out.

        Participate in challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  Make sure you put your blog address in your signature line.
        Participate in sketch challenges or color challenges on other blogs.
        Submit your blog

        for Google registration https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url?pli=1
        Do the same for Yahoo/Bing:  http://www.bing.com/toolbox/submit-site-url

        Make sure that you have business cards with you, not only that, but keep a few cards you have made with you as well, and show them to people such as :
        Doctors Office
        Dentist   Office
        Veterinarian office waiting rooms
        family members
        store clerks
        Dog Groomers
        Any Type of waiting rooms .....
        Some small restaurants have bulletin boards

         IF you have seen the door hanger advertisement I have spoken about, that's a good idea to help spread the word about your new business. Put your class schedule(s) and some business cards on any bulletin board you see.
        Go to your local schools and ask if you can hold classes there.( perhaps while there's a sporting event going on )
        Ask to put a couple of catalogs and your class schedule, along with some business cards in the teacher's lounge ( you might also take a fee photos of your cards and copy them off on a piece of paper to put into the catalogs.
        Leave some catalogs and a class schedule and a few business cards in local car dealerships
        Leave some business cards on any bulletin board .....some small restaurants have bulletin boards
        Put some of your catalogs ( even ones that are expired with a current class schedule and a business card attached to the class schedule ) in waiting rooms in hospitals ( especially surgery waiting rooms or x-ray waiting rooms. You could also do this at all out-patient clinic waiting rooms
        You also might advertise in  Weekly Church Bulletins, call the church office for information

         MAKE SURE That you write down the places that you have put your advertisements in. This way, you can go back and CHECK to see if they are being used or taken. Make sure you can the materials you are leaving from time to time.

         Another thing, SU! has magnetic SIGNS that you can purchase ( I think the cost of them are 2 / $45.00 These are listed in the LOGO PLACE on the SU! Website. There's a lot of business materials you can purchase from STAMPIN UP! with the SU! Logo on it for a reasonable price. IF you can't find the LOGO Place on SU! website e-mail me and I will help you !

        These are just a few ideas that you can use to increase your business. IF you have any ideas that you might like to share, please let me know !
        Happy Stamping !

        NEXT TIP........How to make sure your STAMPS are in THEIR CASES when you ARE FINISHED STAMPING !!

        Coming Soon

        " I am hoping to get some stability to my life and to my Stampin Up! Business / Hobby !!! "
        How many of you have said this to yourselves, or perhaps you have heard a friend say it who is into paper crafting?
        Like all of us, I too have a busy schedule and want to make sure that I have things organized not only in my home and daily life, but also so that I have time for my favorite passion ....STAMPING !

        So, I have decided to do the following things. Lately I have been neglecting my blog postings, but there's a good reason for that. I have been helping other demonstrators who are friends of mine build simple blogs to help their business. I love helping others, I really do. I enjoy the e-mails ( phone calls too ) that I receive asking me how to do certain things, just as much I enjoy helping out a friend who isn't a stamper ! ( Well, sooner or later I try to make ALL MY non-stamping friends into paper crafters ! LOL! )

        During this past week while I have been creating a class, I began to think about my blog(s) and some changes I would like to make. For starters, I am going to have a TERRIFIC TIP TUESDAY !! Starting Tuesday, April 16, 2013. Each Tuesday I will feature a tip about stamping, or a tip that has helped "me" along the way as I am building my SU! business etc. IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS for a TIP .....please feel free to e-mail me !

        As my blog grows, I would love to have a GUEST STAMPER once a month, so if you would like to be a GUEST STAMPER please e-mail me and sent me a card or two that you have made, along with all the information on how the card was made. This will be a way to get your name out there, especially if you have just started blogging, and want more subscribers !!  I am planning on having the GUEST STAMPER on EVERY 2nd THURSDAY  of the MONTH....so, please consider being a guest stamper will you  !

        Each Tuesday I will post a Terrific Tuesday Tip for everyone. I hope you enjoy this.
        ( This Tuesday will be several "TIPS", after that, it will be 1-2 tips each Tuesday )

        On Mondays and Wednesday, I will be featuring a card of some type. On Fridays I will feature FESTIVE FRIDAYS. Festive Fridays will have invitations, thank you notes, announcements etc.

        Saturdays will  be set aside for Simple and Easy cards or projects.

        I won't be posting anything on Sundays!!

        So, I hope that you will enjoy the plans I have for this blog. Be sure to comment from time to time, I would really appreciate that.

        Happy Stamping !


        IF you need to e-mail me :

        Be sure to pass my blog address to all your paper crafting friends !

        It's Spring!!

        The weather is sooo nice out today! So I decided to make a card that reminds me of Spring!
        Stamp Set
        Oh! Hello! no# 130733
        Card Stock
        Midnight Muse. no# 126843
        Calypso Coral no# 122925
        Summer Starfruit. no# 126839
        Whisper White. no# 100730
        Pool Party no# 122924
        Sycamore Street DSP no# 127540
        1 3/4" Circle no# 119850
        1 1/4" Square no# 119865
        Elegant Butterfly no# 127526
        Eyelet Border (retired)
        2 3/8"Scallop Circle. no# 118874

        Constructing the card :
        Using an A2 size card( 8 1/2"x 5 1/2", attach the first layer of Summer Starfruit card stock, to the front of the card using adhesive.
        I cut 4 pcs of Sycamore Street DSP
        1" x 3". Using the 1 1/4" square punch, punch the ends as shown. Cut each of these 1"x3" to 1"x 2 3/4".
        I didn't measure the width between each piece of DSP, but of course you could measure the width if you chose to do so.
        After you place each 1"x 2 3/4" pc of DSP on the pc of Summer Starfruit card stock, w/ your adhesive, then place the 2"by 5 1/4" strip of Pool Party card stock, that you have used with the (retired) eyelet border punch.( you can any SU! border punch of your choice.
        Place the Elegant Butterflies you have previously punched out ( I used Calypso Coral & Summer Starfruit card stock)atop the eyelet border strip, however you want to place the butterflies.
        Using the 2 3/8" scallop circle punch I punched out a scallop circle using Midnight Muse CS. I placed 2
        dimensionals on the scalloped circle, and place it on the card as shown in the photo.
        Using the "Oh Hello" stamp from the stamp set "Oh Hello"no#130733, stamping it on a pc. of whisper white CS , Punch the sentiment out by using 1 3/4" circle punch.
        So that a sentiment can be added to the inside of the card, cut a pc of whisper white 5"x 4". Add any sentiment of your choice to the inside of the card.
        If you have any questions about the card, don't hesitate to email me!
        Have a great day!!

        Happy Stampin'!!
