It was 2007 when Stampin' Up! arrived in Europe. I was introduced to their products through my best friend, Karen, and immediately fell in love!
I've been a crafter for many years - always loved stamping but couldn't quite get to grips with it because either the stamped images were never clear or I had marks around the edges where ink had transfered from the stamp where it shouldn't have done, I was a complete novice. Then I found Stampin' Up!
With their stamps, ink and the amazing Whisper White cardstock I found I was stamping over and over again with the best results I have ever seen. It was amazing! Not only that, all their products colour co-ordinated together beautifully. It was that one stop shop, so to speak, saving me time and postage in getting everything I needed in one go.
Within a week I'd signed the dotted line and became a demonstrator, purely for the discount on future orders, but this was just the start....
A year on I took some samples of things I'd made to my local crop and suddenly my world changed. Everyone there had fallen in love as well.
Since then my little hobby of crafting has now become my business and believe me when I say, it's the best job in the world.
In the last few years I've worked very hard to grow a strong database of amazing customers and have a wonderful group of ladies that have also joined my team in sharing their love for SU! In 2010 I was #8 in the UK for Demonstrator of the year and also earned the exclusive Incentive Trip to Prague - it was an amazing experience and adventure I will never ever forget. I also achieved the Incentive Trip to Vienna in 2011 and was #10 Demonstrator of the Year.
I've been to the annual Stampin' Up! Convention that's open to every Demonstrator, three times now - once in Germany, the UK and last year in Disneyland Paris. Plus, I've made lifelong friends with other Demonstrators all over the UK and Europe. It's the best!!
So much has happened is such a short space of time I do have to pinch myself sometimes to see if I'm dreaming. All this from a person who used to go bright red when someone spoke to me. Who would never stand in front of a group of people and speak for an hour, but now my life has changed, big time, and all because of Stampin' Up!
