Stamp With Us BIRTHDAY BASH online classes!

Can you believe that we are approaching our first birthday! To celebrate we are pleased to announce that

Stamp With Us

online classes will start on Sunday May 2nd & booking is now officially open! We are so excited about this round, it will be full of fantastic projects and a great opportunity to catch up with all our crafty friends!

Please read below as the costs have now changed for last minute sign ups!

How do you join in?

Well all you need to do is click on the Paypal button in the top right hand corner of this blog before the 18th April and pay the early bird fee of just £15, after the 18th April the cost of the online classes will rise to £20.

What happens next?

You will receive confirmation of your payment from us within 48 hours. Before the launch of the classes, you will receive an invite from us to join us on a secured website. Once you are approved as a paying member, you are given access to the site. You should immediately see a welcome message from us and more information showing your way around the site. Don't panic - it really isn't that difficult!

What will you be getting?

Starting on the 2nd May for just over two weeks, every day something new will be added to the site. That could be one of 10 PDF "How to" classes to download, a technique video to watch or we even have online chats and challenges which is where all the members get together on the site at the same (agreed / publicised) time and we all get chatting. We have so much fun and it is great to spend time with and interact with other people who really understand the "passion for paper and card". There may well be a few surprises and prizes along the way too.

Why should you join in?

Stamp With Us online is all about sharing our passion for Stampin' Up! products, so if you love stamping or Stampin' Up!, then what are you waiting for? They are great for fellow demonstrators as we are happy for our classes to be reproduced for your classes (obviously with credit to ourselves). If you haven't got many SU products then you can still join in as all the projects can be adapted so that you can use all of your existing products.
