Stampin’ Up! My Story

Are You Familiar With Stampin’ Up!® ?

If not . . . let me tell you about Stampin’ Up!® in reference to my personal experience.

I’ve always loved papercrafting. And I watched a lot of video tutorials on YouTube.

Of the hundred I watched I was always impressed by the Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrators who always seemed to have the coordinating cardstock, designer series paper, ink, ribbon, embellishments, etc.

They always had their Stampin’ this and Stampin’ that . . . and the stamp sets and die sets . . .

I was so impressed by how they had everything that worked together . . . And I had a bit of this and a bit of that I bought on-line or at my local craft store . . .. but nothing seemed to really go together . . . and those that did I paid dearly for them.

Then . . . I started wondering about Stampin’ Up!® products.

But, I needed an Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator to place an order.

Who to choose?

I then contacted a few of the ladies on YouTube . . . many seemed hungry for my business, but never responded to my inquiries. Maybe they didn’t get my email . . . or they thought I was a crack-pot.

I finally found one who answered my questions and I joined her team!!!

Yes, that was a major leap from wanting to place an order to signing up as an Independent Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator . . . but . . . I could get $125. worth of merchandise for $99. and I was under no obligation to continue. It seemed like a win-win situation for me!!

I also thought this was an excellent place to begin to learn about Stampin’ Up!® products and the business opportunity.

Getting a 20% discount on future orders was better than clipping coupons from the local craft store . . . I could shop from the comfort of my own home . . . and the products would be delivered to my door!!!

That was in June of 2017 . . . not a long time, but a decision I don’t regret.

I learned a lot about the company . . . the team leader . . . and the team . . . Such talented ladies who were extremely helpful.

For me, it’s all good.

I can have this as my business . . . or I can remain a papercrafter — using this as a hobby.

I’m doing both .  . it’s a hobby and a business. That seems to be a winning combination. It is a personal thing. I’m going to continue making paper projects, so I might as well purchase quality products at a discount on everything . . . not overstock or specials from the local craft store.

And . . . all my paper, ink, ribbon, etc. coordinate!!!
