My Story


I absolutely love being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I made the decision to join Stampin' Up! in November 2006 - only a few short months after being introduced to the company.  I instantly fell in love with the quality of the products and the coordination.

Since that day, I've met so many of you through workshops, classes, and events.  I've enjoyed stamping with you over the years and I look forward to stamping with you again soon.  In late 2014, my husband and I decided to move from New Jersey to Utah.  It wasn't an easy decision, but we don't regret it.  My Stampin' Up! business is evolving since our move.  I still fly to New Jersey at least quarterly to hold events for my customers and my Stamp Sorority team of demonstrators.  And, I now offer lots of classes by mail!

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. I get to share my love of stamping with my customers, but I also enjoy discounts on all of my stamping supplies, I'm the first to learn about new products, and I've earned free vacations!  Here are some of the amazing vacations and awards I've earned so far:
