My Story

 

How did I become a demonstrator, why did I become a demonstrator? Well Let me tell you...

I was first introduced to Stampin' Up! through a friend of mine. She asked me to join her workshop and of course, being the supportive friend that I am, I accepted the invitation. I had no idea about rubber stamps, or card making or even scrapbooking! I went to this workshop and when I saw how easy, and fun it was to create cards, I fell in love. The color wheel, and Stampin' Up!'s color families is what actually sold me. I was never any good with trying to match up different colors so the color families and color wheel awed me! I knew that with that; all things were possible. I haven't looked back since.

That was in the spring of 2004. I have since, been a crazy happy stamper!! I really enjoy taking some time to myself to create different cards and often have a hard time giving the cards away! It is my escape from everything crazy in life. The joy that a hobby like this brings is amazing and I love sharing that with others.

As I transition from one chapter of my life, to another, I realize that my hobby can bring me more then just a simple joy of crafting but can also be a new chapter in my career. As a stay at home mom, I now have the chance to expand my hobby into somthing more. I want to inspire others, others who; like me, may not know about the joy of stamping! I saw an oppertunity to teach and share the wonderful tips and tecniques that some one else was so eager to share with me.

For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me and my love for stamping!
Stamp Happy!
