I have a little secret that I'm going to share with you today.... I LOOOOVE TOOLS! There, I've said it, and I feel so much better now that the secret is out! I've loved screwdrivers, sanders, saws, shovels, and any other tool that could help me get a job done quicker, for a long time.
Tools are ultimately what convinced me to love Stampin' Up! Along with the friends I've made along the way, tools are also a big reason why being a demonstrator continues to be so much fun!
A few years ago, I attended a couple of Stampin' Up! workshops, but I didn't really 'get' what stamping was all about. I bought a couple of supplies, like Snail adhesive and a bone folder, that I thought I could use for other things if I didn't decide to adopt stamping as a hobby.
And then one day it happened....my daughter convinced me that I should sign up to be a demonstrator. How did she do that? She told me about an awesome promotion for the ********! If I signed up to be a demonstrator, I could get the ******** FREE. Now that was a deal too good for my tool lovin' heart to pass up!!!! Once I got my hands on the ********, there was no satisfying my appetite for punches, dies, framelits and embossing folders. While Stampin' Up! no longer carries the ********, brand new die cutting and embossing tools will be available in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. i can't wait to get my hands on them!!
So, with very little experience stamping, and no experience creating projects of my own, I embarked on my journey as a demonstrator and I became part of a couple of demonstrator stamping groups. This is where my teammates helped me get started stamping and creating my own projects. Everyone has been so helpful! We get together monthly and share tips, stamp, chat and eat! Best of all, we get to borrow someone else's tools for our Make 'n Takes!
If you love tools, or you'd just like to chat about Stampin' Up!, email or call me! I'd love to be your demonstrator, or to help you become addicted to Stampin' Up!'s incredible product line :)
