When I first purchased the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit it was so I could purchase my products at 20% off.  Shortly after, I lost my part time job and had a thought that maybe I should let Stampin’ Up! be my part time job.  I remember asking my long time friend to hold my first party and thinking…I can’t believe I’m doing this!  I had always told my husband that multi level marketing was not for me when he asked why I didn’t sell Tupperware or Mary Kay.

It’s now over 3 years and I can’t imagine not sharing what I love so much!  Yes, I love the actual thing I do…creating with paper but even more than that I love the teaching and sharing.  I love the relationships that develop as I meet new friends both customers and other demos.  I always tell everyone the only disappointment about the whole thing is that I didn’t know about Stampin’ Up! 20 years ago!

Two weeks ago I got to share at a small scrapbooking crop …thank you Terri!  I prepared two make and takes. The first was the Lovely as a Tree reflection card that Terri requested we do so they could all learn the technique. The second was this sweet clean and simple card that allowed them to use several different Stampin’ Up! products, in case, like me they had never heard of Stampin’ Up!.

So with this card they were able to:

  • Stamp – the flower and greeting from the Peaceful Petals Stamp Set and the little butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set.
  • Color  – with the Stampin’ Write Markers which give you vibrant colors that coordinate with all the paper and other Stampin’ Up! products.
  • Cut – using our Circle Framelits and Big Shot.
  • Punch – with Stampin’ Up!’s quality punches that coordinate with many of our stamp sets.
  • Experience –  the quality of our card stock.  When scrapbookers use Stampin’ Up! card stock for the very first time they almost always mention how they love the thickness and quality.
So if you live in my local area and would like to learn to paper craft or use Stampin’ Up! products to see how they compare to what you already use please give me a call and let’s talk about partying.  If you’re not local I would encourage you to place an order and experience Stampin’ Up! products for yourself.  Unlike me , a long time paper crafter that never heard of Stampin’ Up!…you now have. 🙂
Where you can expect great quality and customer service!


For those of you that have thought about purchasing the Starter Kit or actually becoming a business demonstrator now may be the right time.  Stampin’ Up! has just announced that the Holiday Catalog will be unveiled at Convention this year!  Attendees will be the first to score a copy of the catalog plus see, play and wait for it…purchase the products!  Exciting!!!

So if you would like to go to convention with me this year sign up before Convention registration ends and Stampin’ Up! will be waiving the $295 registration fee.  This is also retroactive for all my team members who signed up July 1 2013 or after. You don’t want to miss it…all the learning, sharing, crafting, laughing, and fun being with like minded paper crafters!  Contact me if you have questions.
