So, I don't know if any of you are like me...a crazy woman avid stamper, but I want to share a bit about how I got started in stamping/paper craft and how Stampin Up came into my life. When I was working full time, I had a friend who is a card maker and I envied her creativity and how beautiful her projects were....I said....I want to learn how to do this!! However, as I was working full time, I really did not have any available time to learn or do any thing like that. When I retired, my friend took me under her wing---and she shared with me all the materials and equipment she used as well as how to use them. Hubby bought me my BIG SHOT and the rest is history. For a couple of years I was creating cards---using materials from the Big Box stores and I was introduced to one of the On line Demos----Jessica Taylor---I quickly started following her videos and thought I should try some of their products. Well, it was all over. I was hooked on Stampin' Up products. The quality has no comparison! It wasn't long when I realized that I needed to become a Demonstrator. I just love what I do so much, and believe in the products, I just had to. I want to share with you a poem I wrote to encourage those of you who are contemplating being a Demonstrator. I am telling you, once you TAKE THE STEP, you will never go back! ENJOY!
TAKING THE STEP

Pretty paper, matching inks, with ribbons & beads.
