My Story


I LOVE free stuff -- especially free stamps! It’s just one of the many perks I get as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I attended my first Stampin’ Up! workshop ten years ago and have been hooked ever since! I signed up as a demonstrator just so I could get a discount on my purchases. I started slow, doing a couple workshops for my friends. Now I am making a career out of my Stampin’ Up! business while I stay home with my kids (Thomas, 12 yrs;  Claire, 10 yrs; Elise, 7 yrs; and Anna, 5 yrs . Stampin’ Up! is truly making my dreams come true! I have earned eight FREE incentive trips courtesy of Stampin' Up!: to Bermuda, Hawaii, the Southern and Western Caribbean, Alaska, Fiji, and Medditerranean. In 2012-2015, I was named one of the top 100 Demonstrators of the Year, a top honor for demonstrators who succeed under a balanced business model of personal sales, recruiting, and training their downline. I also served as one of six demonstrators on the 2014-2015 Advisory Board.

Although the free stuff is fun, I truly feel blessed by the people I have met and the friends I have made. I enjoy making connections with new people as a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement. For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating projects is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.

The picture on the left is of me and my mom just after we walked on stage at Stampin’ Up’s annual convention for our personal sales achievement award. Mom and I have attended more than 16 Stampin’ Up! events together in locations including Alaska, Las Vegas, Orlando, Memphis, Houston, Denver, Phoenix, and Salt Lake City. Will you join us on our next adventure?
