Sara Mattson-Blume, Wisconsin Lily's Ink Pad
My love of teaching was instilled in me as a young Girl Scout, has been with me in my career as a Middle School Math Teacher, and has carried over into my hobby of papercrafting. Creativity is my stress-reliever and I am grateful for the opportunities Stampin' Up! has brought me, especially meeting my online and in-person life-long friends. My favorite part of being a Demonstrator is still opening up a new set and creating with it for the first time.
Yapha Mason, California Stamps and Scraps with Yapha
When I became a Stampin' Up demonstrator in 2007, it was to share my love of stamping and support my own hobby. I have since come to realize that stamping is as important to my mental health as probiotics and other supplements are to my physical health. In addition to being a Stampin' Up demonstrator, I am an elementary school librarian and a Plexus ambassador. I live in Southern California with my husband, teenage daughter, and three large dogs. I am grateful for the friendships I have found through Stampin' Up.
Rhonda Griffin, Oklahoma The Stampin' Bunny
I live in Edmond, Oklahoma with my husband and two daughters. I began stamping because I needed to be able to make nice cards for a pre-existing annual card sale at my church and found my upline at MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group at another church. Online stamping challenges really got me hooked on stamping, and I became a demonstrator in July of 2006. The many great friendships are now my favorite part of being a demonstrator.
Sharleen Luciano Stamp with Shar
I emigrated from South Africa in 2005 and I met my husband in 2006. I am a stay home mum. We have two beautiful boys. I have always loved papercrafting- it's a stress reliever for me. I love to share how to make things and help you find your creative juices. I have met the most amazing people along the way and I am so thankful.
Sarah Wills, Texas Sarah's Ink Spot
I discovered paper crafting as a way to get out and meet people when we moved to Texas from England in 2000 and it took off from there! I absolutely love stamping, playing with paper and sharing ideas and my favorite parts of being a Demonstrator have to be the friendships made along the way and the thrill of opening a box of new goodies from Stampin' Up! - it never gets old! I live in Central Texas and love to play in my stamp room, cook, grow & preserve veggies and get outdoors camping with my family several times a year.
Cindy Elam, Tennessee Heart's Delight
My best friend convinced me about ten years ago to try card making, and I was instantly bitten by the paper crafting bug! I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator shortly after, just so I could get the discount. But I quickly realized how much fun it was to share my love for stamping with others, and I've made so many wonderful new friends because of it! When we retired to Tennessee, I made more new friends all because of stamping!
Kris Kilkenny, Oklahoma Paper Fairy Kris
I started scrapbooking with my great-grandmother when I was five-years-old. Back then, we used thick paste and a stick along with rubber cement to glue the photos and memorabilia down. Years later, my son had a play date and his friend's mom asked me if I wanted to stamp while our kids played. She introduced me to Stampin' Up! and I purchased a wooden Christmas stamp, the watercolor pencils and the Blender Pens. I've been hooked ever since and I became a Demonstrator in 2009. My scrapbooking style has evolved and I love the Memories and More style of scrapbooking using the photo pocket pages. I primarily make cards, tags and gift packaging items. I live in Oklahoma with my husband, two boys, one cat and dog. My husband and I own an online maternity store called, BellaBlu Maternity and I work full time at an audiology clinic. Stamping is such a creative outlet and stress reliever. My favorite part of being a demonstrator is the friendships I have made with others who love papercrafting (in person and online) and having early access to new products.
Mary Haugen, Minnesota Center Stage Stamping
I have been stamping for 22 years. Stamping was my “sanity break” when my kids were little. It progressed to a passion to create. I love to play with color and lay outs. My favorite thing about being a Demo hands down is the friends I have made. I have met the most amazing people! I live in Hutchinson, MN with my husband and 2 crazy dogs.
Staci Miserlan, Wisconsin
I grew up in Herron, MI (a suburb of Alpena 😂) I’ve been creative my whole life, but bought my first rubber stamp about 20 years ago. I joined Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator 15 years ago and enjoyed stamping as a creative outlet when I was a stay-at-home Mom. I still love stamping and scrapping and can’t wait to do some stamping challenges with my Inky Friends!
Twila Davis, Illinois Stamp a Little Longer
I live in Lawrenceville, IL. I've always enjoyed crafting of all kinds. My grandmother was always crafting and I loved going to her house to see what she was making. I went to my first Stampin' Up! workshop about 14 years ago and was soon hooked and signed up a few months later. I love to teach others the art of stamping. The most rewarding feeling is to see someone's face light up after they have stamped their first card and hear them say, "I really made this!" I have made some wonderful friends in the past 14 years and I'm grateful for each and every one of them.
Mickey Roberts, Florida Paper Conversation
I live in Port St. John, FL. Crafting is something that has always been a part of my life thanks to my Mom. I've been focused on paper crafting after being introduced to scrapbooking in 2000 and became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in 2005. I love how being a demonstrator gives me the opportunity to share my love of crafting while building amazing relationships with a wonderful group of customers who are now great friends.
