Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator

As you know I am someone who loves crafting & especially card making. Well I have been buying a variety of different stamps, punches & paper to do this but one particular product stands head and shoulders above the rest.  This company is Stampin' Up.  What I really like about the products is that they are the best quality I have found. When I stamp an image onto my card stock I want it to be clean & crisp with plenty of detail. The card stock is of a great weight & so smooth that the stamped images again are crisp & clean.  Homemade/handmade cards are great but I still want them to look professional and the best I can make.

So where do I get Stampin' Up products from?  Well the good thing is that you can't buy them in the shops, so the cards you make can be a little more exclusive, you buy them through a Stampin' Up demonstrator.  Luckily one of my closest friends became a Stampin' Up demonstrator a while ago & she started running workshops teaching & showing off this great range.  It is so much fun as each class you get to learn another technique & to use different stamps & punches.  It really is a 'try before you buy' method.  This was so good for me as it allowed me to grow in confidence and ability to where I was able to make a range of cards & start selling them locally.  There really is a market for individual high quality cards out there.

Well turn the clock forward a few months and I wanted to become more involved with Stampin' Up products and give more people out there the opportunity to buy some of their great range. Stampin' Up offer new demonstrators a fantastic  start up incentive.  Buy £130 worth of stock (absolutely anything from the catalogue, you mix & match to create your own package, the stamp sets you want, the punches, the card stock, ink pads & pretty embellishments like rhinestones, pearls & ribbons, and you pay only £99.  So excitedly I put my order together & on Friday placed it.

Over the next few days I will receive a huge bundle of craftiness to allow me to continue to make some fabulous cards and most importantly continue my passion for everything homemade.  It is very exciting and I can't wait.

I really want to share all of this and Stampin' Up products with all of you out there so I will be starting my own workshops to share techniques & show you all these great ideas & pass on this passion. Remember you can only buy Stampin' Up products through a demonstrator. So please get in touch allmark.j@sky.com & be one of the first to join me on this great Stampin' Up craftiness adventure. Wheeeeeeee!
