I have been into all kinds of crafts and making things for years. I was a cloth doll artist, a fiber artist and tried to learn to paint. But the "thing that stuck" was paper and ink! The discovery of Stampin' Up was what finally clicked for me! The fabulous color system is the key. The coordinated colors start with the ink and go all the way through to the card stock, printed designer papers, ink, ribbons and all sorts of embellishments. Because I use only Stampin' Up!, I can sit down anytime and have everything I need to create something, in just a few minutes or spend as many happy hours as I like. I will always have ink, paper and beautiful stamps on hand that are meant to coordinate. How great is that? And the genius behind this is I actually spend less on craft supplies than I ever have just because all the products work together, for as long as you own them!
I became a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator just to get some starter tools and the discount. I planned to be one for only a short time. Well, that was 15 years ago! I love Stampin' Up and can't imagine not being a Demonstrator!
I still sew dolls and I still try to paint. But Stampin' Up has turned into my "First Love". And more than just stamping and great products is the "Community of Stampin' Up!". I have met so many people who are now good, good friends because of Stampin' Up!. The caring and sharing among this community of stampers is an important part for me.
It's a great place to be!
