My story with Stampin' Up began in November 2006, when I saw a display of wonderful projects at a craft show. I was completely hooked on the fabulous stamps & co-ordinated card, inks, accessories....& everything!
I decided to join Stampin' Up! in April 2007 (now I wonder why I waited so long), as I wanted to get the many, many things on my wishlist at a great discount. Before long, I discovered I really enjoyed showing others how easy they could stamp & create their own cards & gifts too & started running some small classes from home.
More than 8 years on, I'm still hooked on stamping & Stampin' Up! & I enjoy sharing ideas & projects with a wonderful group of friends & customers at the regular classes I run from my home at Panania in Sydney. I have a blog: www.dianebarnes.blogspot.com, where I share projects, tips & tutorials & my facebook page where I share ideas, inspiration & Stampin' Up! news.
My Stampin' Up! experience has been so much more than just stamps and ink — I think it’s about sharing a part of yourself with people you care about. I've met so many wonderful people through Stampin' Up, many of whom I'm happy to call great friends now & some are part of my Stampin' Up! team (the Diamond Stampers) too. I really look forward to seeing how my story continues to grow in the years ahead.
Thanks so much for visiting my website. I hope you find some inspiration & ideas here & perhaps a little of what I love about Stampin' Up!
I'd be very happy to help you with your papercrafting needs so contact me if you'd like any help or more information about my classes, blog or anything Stampin' Up!
Warm & inky wishes
