I started paper crafting over 7 years ago when I became hooked on scrapbooking. My first album was an album of childhood memories for my eldest daughter's 21st birthday. Looking back at the album now, some of the designs looked very basic but I loved the feel of the papers, ribbons, buttons and other embellishments.
Since then I have completed several albums including one for my youngest daughter's 21st birthday.
I started using products from Stampin up and loved the co-ordination of the products and the quality of the stampsets .
I gradually moved into making cards as it is quicker and it is easy to produce several designs in an evening and it is good to have a supply of cards on hand. Over the last 4 years I have made all my Christmas cards and it now seems to be expected by my recipients. I very rarely purchase a commercial card.
I decided to join as a Demonstrator so that I could benefit from the Starter Kit being such a bargain and to get the discount on my purchases. My eldest daughter was getting married and I knew that I would be purchasing a lot of card for the invites. As my confidence grew I started running classes and demonstrations.
My Stampin' Up! journey has already been so enjoyable, I can't help but recommend it to everyone!
