My Story

I Love What I Do!

I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator because I fell in love with rubber stamping at the first workshop I attended. I wanted it ALL and I wanted to help other people feel the joy of creating, too. After finding out about the great benefits of becoming a demonstrator, I could barely wait to sign up!

Being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator has been SO much more than I had dreamed!  I was able to quit my full-time research job, and now I am now able to stay home with our daughter and son, plus bring in a good income to supplement our family’s budget. Among the great perks is the annual Stampin’ Up! cruise that demonstrators can earn. In 15 years, I’ve earned 15 cruises or incentive trips (like Fiji in 2013, the Mediterranean in 2016 and Thailand in 2017), so it’s definitely possible!!

If you would like more information about becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator whether at the hobbyist level or as a business person, please contact me. There are demonstrators in my group all over the country and I’d love to help you get started, too!

What a wild, fun and inspirational ride!  In 2007 and 2008 I had the fabulous honor of serving on the Stampin’ Up! Advisory Board as one of the 8 demonstrators invited to work closely with the Corporate Team on all kinds of issues.  It was a privilege to serve!  And since 2007, I've earned a Founder's Circle trip and been recognized every year by being among the top 100 Demonstrators of the Year. 

In November 2017, I was recognized as the #10 demonstrator in the United States and #22 in the world!

I never dreamed that Stampin' Up! would take me all across the country, and even the world -- from rock climbing in southern Utah to a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Fiji in 2013 to Thailand in 2017 and the Greek Isles in 2019!  I'd love to share the opportunity for stamping adventures with you, too.

I enjoy sharing my creative projects online--be sure to visit my website at for SO much more - video tutorials, technique tips and more!
