This month I’m celebrating my 20th Anniversary as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.
Believe me when I tell you that when I signed up it was only for the discount and I never imagined that 20 years later I would have taught thousands of people how to make their own greeting cards and sold over $775,000 worth of stamping supplies. Wow, that’s a lot!
My greatest hope is that people are actually using those supplies to MAKE and SEND cards!
If you’re not and your supplies are just sitting there, we need to talk.
Over the last 20 years I’ve also helped many, many new demonstrators get started. I couldn’t find the exact number, but I think it’s over 350! Some just join for the discount and stay for awhile but I’ve also had the honor to help others build a business that makes them money while doing something that they love.
Last weekend I attended an event just for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and here’s the card I made for the demonstrators on my team that also attended…
Berry Burst card base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
Floral paper: 4″ x 5-1/2″
Usually I’m not one to add lots of embellishments to my cards, but this one called for something a little extra special.
Of course, it’s still an easy to put together card because that’s just my style.
TIP: To make your doilies go further, cut them in half!
To glue the doilies down I sponged Liquid Multi-Purpose Glue onto the back. I’m so thankful my friend Rachel shared that tip with me because it’s been such a help when gluing down delicate pieces.
I’ll be sharing more about this Stampin’ Up! event later. I had so much fun connecting with stamping friends, seeing the new annual catalog, watching stamping demonstrations and playing with new stamping supplies.
We’d love to have you join us!
(Psst… all demonstrators can now see the new annual catalog online and pre-order from it starting May 2nd!)
Thank you for sharing this fun stamping journey with me!
