My Story

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.

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.

I always love to tell the story of how I started with Stampin' Up! because it was just such a happy, unexpected surprise. When I lived in California a friend of mine was hosting a Stampin' Up! class where we paid a fee and got to make four projects. I was a bit hesitant to go because I was worried about having to be creative. I decided to go anyway because the event was the day before my birthday, several neighborhood friends were attending and my friend was serving Margaritas. Needless to say, I had a great time and was very pleased with what I made. Honestly, I was bit intimidated by the catalog and so I didn't order anything that night but I did decide to host a party a few months later. I hosted my party, got lots of free product and started playing.

Soon after my party a strange thing happened... I started dreaming about card designs. I honestly thought I was going crazy. Well, I wasn't going crazy, I just needed to be creative! I was  drawn to Stampin' Up! because it made creativity less intimidating and accessible. I had never considered myself to be a creative person so it just felt wonderful to experience the excitement of feeling creative. This is, in fact, one of the things I love about Stampin' Up!. Creativity is not just for the blank canvas type of artist and creativity comes in as many forms as there are people! If you are reading this I hope you will feel inspired to tap into your own creative side. It really can be life changing!!! Let me know if I can help you in any way. Have a wonderful, inspired day!!!
