Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
I love telling my Stampin’ Up! story! I was asked in early 2007 to join a Stamp Club. My response was, “What’s a Stamp Club?” I had never even heard of Stampin’ Up! and certainly had no idea what I had been missing out on. Always having enjoyed crafts, I decided to give this Stamp Club a try. Never did I imagine that that conversation in 2007 would lead me to where I am today.
I decided to join Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in August, 2008. I have a thriving business built on the principle of offering a variety of opportunities to teach stamping, paper crafting, and memory keeping in a fun and relaxed atmosphere while providing excellent customer service.
I have enjoyed many milestones and achievements in my Stampin’ Up! tenure including numerous awards for Sales, Recruiting, and Leadership and being named to Founder’s Circle (top 100 USA demonstrators) in 2014 and 2015, and 2016 Global 100 (#81). In 2017, I was #149 of nearly 30,000 US Demonstrators and #248 of more than 49,000 Global Demonstrators.
I’ve earned several trips including a 2012 Hilton Head Getaway, 2014 Western Caribbean Cruise, 2015 Waikiki Grand Vacation, 2016 Mediterranean Cruise, 2017 Thailand Vacation, and 2018 Alaskan Cruise. I am currently working toward a 2019 Greek Isles Cruise. I consider myself blessed to be able to have the opportunity to earn trips that take me around the world.
I am the proud leader of Mary’s Merry Stampers. As a team of SU! demonstrators, we continue to grow in number and in personal achievements. We meet monthly focusing on sharing creative projects and business tips. We seek to build each other up and celebrate our successes. Best of all, we are friends who enjoy crafting together and support each other outside Stampin' Up!
Stampin’ Up! is my full-time job, and I can honestly say I do what I love and love what I do. The best part of this job is bringing joy to others by sharing my love of Stampin’ Up! and paper crafting. The friends I've made along my Stampin' Up! journey are too numerous to count.
I am blessed to have two beautiful daughters, Andrea 26 and Emily 21. We enjoy being a family of OSU Buckeyes and Cincinnati Reds fans. I also enjoy movies and live theatre productions, working in my garden, baking, and raising money for charitable causes through hosting weekend crafting events.
