I saw my first catalog over 10 years ago. I have always loved arts and crafts since my mother and I created when I was little. So, I wanted to start making scrapbook pages as therapy. I bought stamps, ink, and some paper. Well, it sat in a closet for a couple of years…but I kept buying things because they were cute and I swore I would use them! In 2004, I started to go to the local scrapbook store for classes. I was hooked! I made a scrapbook, altered items, and cards! Then they closed the store. I was so crushed, but then I realized that Stampin’ Up! might be the answer! I already spent $50-100 each time I went to a crop night; why not get a discount on my products?! I looked on the demonstrator locator and found 3 demos. I looked at their websites to see which ones actually held classes and posted some samples. I chose my up line and gave her a call! The rest is history! I wanted to be a hobby demo at first, but then I started holding monthly classes. I used the commission to support my obsession. I love all of the perks that a SU! Demonstrator receives from Corporate. Plus, all of their products are high quality and the customer service is outstanding! Don’t let your products collect dust! Join me and I will show you how to have fun with them!
