In 2008 I attended a Stamp Camp and found stamping again after first trying it in 1983. A few months later I called my Stampin' Up! demonstrator and signed up because I enjoy stamping with friends, and the discount and a little extra income would be a bonus. I have since discovered that I love teaching others how to stamp and scrapbook - unbelievable if you knew how shy & nervous I used to be in front of a crowd! I love seeing guests’ eyes light up when they discover what they can create with high quality, beautiful, and fun-to-use Stampin’ Up! products. Becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is exciting! I loved it when UPS delivered my big box containing my Starter Kit, and enjoyed every minute of studying all of the materials and planning my route to success. A new world opened up when I first logged into the demonstrator website, giving me access to tons of training, samples, and patterns. The friends I have made and will make in the future are the icing on the cake! Stampin' Up! rewards its demonstrators beautifully and compensates us generously for succeeding at doing what we love. I love being MY OWN BOSS and I LOVE WHAT I DO!
