My Stampin' Up! Story

This month I was invited to join the Stampin' Up! Recruit Crew.  This is a training program to help demonstrators recruit and expand their business.  I'm hoping I will learn many things beyond recruiting and since my husband and I are expecting our first child this winter, I would like to expand my business so that I can stay home with our baby. 

Here is my Stampin' Up! story:

I've always been into crafts, ranging from paper crafts to needlework.  Then about 4 or 5 years ago my mother (my upline) introduced me to a new craft:  rubber stamping and card making.  At that time I was already into scrapbooking and thoroughly enjoyed it so it made sense to try rubber stamping.  At first I wasn't into the card making but it didn't take long for me to fall in love with it.  For awhile I borrowed my mothers supplies and then when I saved enough money, I purchased the starter kit.  It was ideal as I didn't have any of my own tools.  I was able to get all the things to start at a great low price.  At the time I was a student and chose not to do the business. 
I continued to purchase new stamps and supplies as I could afford and when my husband and I moved to a new town I decided to rejoin Stampin' Up! so that I could get a discount on anything I buy and to meet new people.  Through holding workshops I have the opportunity to meet new people and share my love of Card Making and Rubber Stamping.

I hope y'all enjoyed my little story.  I will be back to share with you some new projects using new products.  Have you checked out the new Idea Book & Catalogue?  If not, you can download it from the sidebar.

Enjoy the rest of you day.
