As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, stamps are the building block of my creativity.  Stampin' Up! stamps are:
  • Exclusively designed artwork 
  • Deeply etched into rubber!!!
  • They have designed styles for any taste
  • Are grouped into sets for easy coordination
  • Can be purchased in wood mount, or clear mount!!!

 I love my Stampin' Up! Stamps...and I have used many stamps in my day...these are the best out there.  I also love that thru the years that I have been a demonstrator, they have kept up with the current styles.  When I first decided to do this over 17 years ago...I researched 5 companies that sold thru home parties...and am so happy that I went with Stampin' Up!  They have been the best!!!!

I didn't get to finish up what we did yesterday, at my Downline Meeting, as my computer was not behaving.  Today it seems fine.  We did get a chance to stamp....Actually we did the same Make-n-Takes that we did at Friday's Stamper's 10.  The top one shows the buttons we made, and the bottom one shows a gift card holder...will get the other samples on here later this week!!! 

Karen will be joining me at the Stampin' Up! Regional Event in Denver on September 8 from 9-5.  I am so excited...AND...I can have 8 guest come  with me.....It is a full day of stampin, presentations, swapping, lunch, all for only $75.00.  If you are interested in coming with me...let me know.  Registration usually fills up fast.
