Do You Love Stampin’ Up! Products?

Join My Team

Hey Stampers! For me, the answer to this is…YES! I LOVE Stampin' Up! products! But, you might not know that the first time I ever went to a “home party”, I had never even heard of Stampin' Up!

The daughter of a church friend invited me and I thought…why not? Let's see what this stamping is all about! I was involved in a card ministry at church, but at that time, the Hallmark store was my go to place for cards.

Well, I went to the party, had a great time, and decided to have my own so I could get some “free stuff”. Isn't that why we all are willing to have a home party?

Well, here I am over 18 years later and that party was the beginning of my own Stampin' Up! business. Before COVID19 entered our world, I did in person gatherings so I could tell others how my business has been such a blessing for my family and me. Now, I do more phone meetings and “zoom” presentations to share my love of Stampin' Up! products and, for those who are a bit curious, the business opportunity.

I recorded one of these meetings and I wanted to share that presentation today. After watching, I'd love to chat so you can email me or shoot me a text (214-293-4461) with any questions.
