I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for over 19 years. When I started in 2002 I had a full-time day job and did Stampin' Up! "on the side" until September of 2008 when we decided it was time to make my Stampin' Up! business my full time job. Now I balance spending time with my soon-to-be 15 grandchildren (ranging in age from 21 down to newborn) and stamping. I've been married to my handsome husband, Mark for almost 45 years, so he gets some attention too! lol!
I achieved the Founders' Circle Retreat for the Top 100 U.S. Demonstrators five times: 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014.
A really great perk of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator are the trips you can earn! I've earned 14 trips with Stampin' Up!:
Western Carribean 2005 , Mexican Riviera 2006, Panama Canal 2007, Bermuda 2008, Hawaii 2009, Southern Caribbean 2010, Alaska 2011,
Disney 2012, Fiji 2013, Western Caribbean 2014, Hawaii 2015, Mediterranean 2016, Thailand 2017, Alaska 2018.
Earning trips DOES take dedication, consistency, and hard work, and I have to tell you that it takes a combination of consistent sales and promotions from my team of Yes Mam! Stampers to achieve it.
I love to stamp, create, and share with friends, no matter how much or little time I have to do it!
I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator because I love stamping! I love being part of a company that constantly inspires my creativity with their exclusive stamps and accessories, but cares about their demonstrators and customers as much as they do about selling their product!
