I saw my first catalog over 15 years ago. I have always loved arts and crafts since my mother and I created when I was little. In 2004, I started to go to the local scrapbook store for classes. I was hooked! I made a scrapbook, papercrafts, and cards! Then they closed the store. I was so crushed, but then I realized that Stampin’ Up! might be the answer! I already spent $50-100 each time I went to a crop night; why not get a discount on my products?! I signed up in 2007 and the rest is history! I wanted to be a hobby demo at first, but then I started holding monthly classes. I used the commission to support my obsession. I love all of the perks that a SU! Demonstrator receives from Corporate. Plus, all of their products are high quality and the customer service is outstanding!
