Building Relationships

A great advantage to being a Stampin Up demonstrators is building relationship, relationships you would have never had, had it not been for Stampin Up. When I met Shirley Mckay and her sister at our Scrap a way to a cure event 4 years ago I never would have guessed what a big part of my life she would become. Not only is she my upline but she is an amazing friend and Nana Shirley to my kids. God puts people in our paths for a reason, and Shirley is no exception to that. When she moved to Texas I was so sad to see her go but knew how happy she was to be closer to her family. She has been home for Regionals and stopped by today to see the kids and spend some time with us. We love nana shirley!
Being a Stampin Up Demonstrator is more than just stamping, its building relationships, learning things about yourself that you never knew, and being able to share amazing things with others. God as creator, created so many beautiful things...being made in His image it is only natural that we are all creative as well in one way or another. How will you share your creativity? Maybe the best way is to become a Stampin Up Demonstrator. Want more information email me

Inspiration Board

I wanted to share with you my inspiration board. This is something that I encourage my downline to do, find what inspires them, what they are working towards...My inspiration board had a makeover Ethan had to be added and my new photo with the ceo.... (I created the picture above on my digital studio for the center of my board)
I filled my board with new ideas, pictures of my loves, Scripture and what nots...looking at this board makes me smile and makes me feel ready to create...
I had to have pictures of my dad...I miss him so much.
A closer look at the other side....

I encourage you as a demonstrator or even if you are not a demonstrator to create your inspiration board. Soon to be added to mine is my Incentive trip tracker!! Im determined to earn that trip to fiji!!

Regionals 2011!

Can I just say, I love Stampin Up!
I have loved working for Stampin Up for the last year and a half but I have to say that today truely inspired me and reminded me why I love being a Stampin Up Demonstrator. When I joined Stampin Up January 2010 I never expected to do well, that was until I saw all the possibilities and began to set goals for myself and my Stampin Up business. I have surpassed my goals every quarter this year and I continue to set new goals each month. I love making new friends, sharing what I love, getting the sneak peeks, and like today spending time with other demonstrators. There are so many perks to being a stampin up demonstrator!

Here is a picture of myself and my upline Shirley:
and a picture of the wonderful and amazing CEO of Stampin Up Shelly:

Meeting Shelly had to be one of the great moments today, as soon as I get a copy from my upline I will share our group picture with Shelly.

Regionals was filled with inspiring ideas, make and takes, swaps, and my favorite {PRIZE PATROL} there was free stuff that made me smile from ear to ear! I have lots of ideas and great things that I want to try and share with you in the coming weeks!

So here is a perk for you, now that I have shared why I love stampin up, If you have ever thought about joining stampin up join in the next two weeks and with your starter kit get a new set from the 2012 OCCASSIONS MINI! An exclusive set that demonstrators cant even preorder until decemeber!
