Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

Who's Celebrating 15 Yrs Today???


Guess what? 15 years ago today I made one of the BEST decisions of my life! I ordered the starter kit that would change the path of my life! 15 years later I am feeling so very blessed to be with a company that values and rewards me for my hard work while providing me with the tools to bring happiness to others. What is the one thing that I value more than anything? If I had to pick just ONE thing that Stampin' Up! has brought to my life...it's hands down the FRIENDSHIPS - amazing FRIENDSHIPS!!! I can't imagine my life without this crazy paper, stamps and ink world that I choose to be a part of! I'm feeling so very fortunate to be doing something I LOVE. And to have all of YOU in my life! Thank you for 15 years of friendship and fun!

I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 2004. That was the year that I decided I needed a discount on all the fabulous products I was ordering on a monthly basis. So I took the plunge and purchased my starter kit. I thought... hmmmm....maybe I could share my passion for paper crafting with some of my friends. Teach them some fabulous techniques, fun folds, new card layouts and get some great training from the masters at Stampin’ Up! to share with them too. This would be a good way to help me fund my habit if they placed orders...right??? So it began! If you'd like to be part of something so much bigger - check out all the details for ordering that kit HERE and join with me. 

I have a card with a CELEBRATION theme to share with you today - you'll find a FREE downloadable file below too.
