I Quit Stampin Up’s Demonstrator Program

Tropical Oasis Designer Paper

The news is I am no longer a Stampin Up demonstrator, while I enjoyed the early catalog, lots of discounts and the new card ideas 💡 I just filled up my card making stash too quickly. The discounts and freebies were incredible and I went from having a few stamps left over from the 1990’s to being prepared for any occasion and theme. I’m even stocked up for envelopes, two sided tape, and dimensionals.

I was only a demonstrator for personal use but since in the past I’ve shared ideas on-line I wanted to introduce you to some Stampin Up Demonstrators:

Lisa provides only on-line support ( https://lisasstampstudio.com/ ) but her you-tube videos are so classy, unique, and easy to follow.

If you’re in the San Jose area and prefer in person classes, Brenda provides excellent support with pretty card ideas at http://www.keenankreations.com/ .

Diane has a wonderful e-mail / on-line presence and offers paper and ribbon shares at https://www.ddstamps.com/. .

it’s not an easy choice but now that I am stocked up for the year I don’t have to decide who to buy from, I just have to clear the cabinet.

Laying out some favorite papers for inspiration

To this end, I recently pulled out some pretty patterned 6x 6 papers and laid them out like cards, matching colors and planning embellishments. Then I realized while it’s fun for me to embellish a card with a beautiful stamped image the piece usually covers up a lot of the card front. So I decided to highlight some favorite decorative paper with a simple card Idea, adding a 3.25 x 5.5 strip to a 4.25 x 5.5 card (any designer paper with matching cardstock). A sentiment with ribbon or coordinating strip of cardstock and the card is worthy of any birthday or good deed occasion.

Cards which highlight my favorite papers

I organized my papers while working on this project so as an added bonus my paper shelf looks great. Now I have some cards ready to bless others as much as I was blessed in creating them.
