Eleven Years Ago | Stampin’ Up!

Eleven Years Ago | Stampin’ Up!

 

Eleven years ago my life changed.  I just had Alexis.  She was 5 months old when I decided to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  

 

WOW! Eleven years! 

 

When I look back on the eleven years I’ve been with Stampin’ Up! I can see so many great blessings that have come along the way.  After trying a few other great companies prior to Stampin’ Up! this is the one that I knew right away I was passionate for.  

 

I’ve always loved the concept of being my own boss and the entire Direct Selling venture, but there was something about Stampin’ Up! that made me really passionate about creativity and most of all uplifting and inspiring others along the way.  

 

For the record let me tell you that I probably wasn’t inspiring anyone with my creativity in the beginning.  Boy could I make a not so pretty card when I started.  Although my creativity may not have been on par, my enthusiasm was over the top.  You know that contagious enthusiasm?  You see someone so happy doing what they are that you want to be a part of it too? That’s was me… and it’s still that way eleven years later.  

 

During my eleven years with Stampin’ Up! not only have I been able to enjoy a business I can call my own but the most incredible friendships along the way.  Today my favorite part of my business comes from making something with my ink, paper and stamps and uplifting and inspiring others.  There is something great about showing others the art of creativity and that you DON’T have to be creative to stamp.  It comes with time.  Just like anything else in life.  

 

While my family has been blessed beyond belief during my time with Stampin’ Up! we all learned this year the most beautiful part about being a demonstrator was the community of stampers that I know.  When Russ had his stroke my customers, downline and fellow demonstrator sisters prayed and took care of Russ and I.  It was the most humbling experience during a really difficult time.  You prayed hard, and I will always love each and every one of you for it!! 

 

Today I’m sharing my two favorite things to do.  Paper crafts and Digital scrapbooking.  

 

As you know for the last year and half Heather Summers and I have lead a Digital Group completely focused on My Digital Studio.  It’s been a great journey as we help inspire more and more people to enjoy the art of digital scrapbooking.  Today over 1500+ members enjoy the challenges, ideas, advice and encouragement that comes from this group.

 

I’m grateful to Stampin’ Up! for giving me an opportunity to preserve my family memories. My Digital Studio is just ONE way I get it done.  

 

Digital Scrapbooking, Stampin' Up!

 

Next, my other passion (more like ADDICTION) is paper, ink and stamps!

Be a Star, Stampin' Up!

 

It’s easy to be a star as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  Every time I create something I feel like a star.  Not because I think what I’m creating is amazing, but the feeling I get from making it.  

It’s only fair that I share the greatest opportunity that someone shared with me.  Are you looking to fulfill a passion? Do you like to inspire or uplift other people around you? If so, I would love for you to join the Stampin’ Up! adventure with me.  

 

Right now until June 30th  you can JOIN Stampin’ Up! for $50. You can choose $55 in retail product of your choice AND you would get a Paper Pumpkin kit along with your kit.
