I am so excited to finally be able to share my news! I am absolutely thrilled to announce I have been chosen to be a part of the Stampin’ Up! 2018 Artisan Design Team, I still can’t quite believe it!
I started, like many demonstrators for the discount and to be able to meet with others who enjoyed paper craft and stamping. I joined 8years ago because I loved the product and needed it all! Right from the start I have loved being able to share and inspire others by meeting with friends to stamp together, I have gradually been building up the number of classes I now hold.
I work in a busy day job, so for most of these 8 years, Stampin’ Up! has always been such amazing fun but also ‘just my hobby’. However, over the last couple of years I have taken the decision to really focus on Stampin’ Up! and try to achieve some goals and dreams! My husband Steve, son Joshua and my incredibly supportive family have all helped me turn my hobby into the classes, events and online FB lives I run today.
My goal this year was to promote to Silver Elite, and I am really pleased to say that my focus and determination to toward this has paid off and I attended my first Centre Stage at Solihull this last weekend. This was amazing and loved sharing the evening with people who over the years have become my very good friends.
When thinking about my goals for my Stampin’ Up! business being chosen to be part of the Artisan design team has always been up there with the possibility of one day achieving an incentive trip, but honestly NEVER in a million years thought this was possible. I know that there are so many talented demos out there so my chances were slim. I cannot explain how delighted and honoured I am to have receieve the call from Stampin’ Up offering me the opportunity…..I was literally dancing around my kitchen!
I am one of two from the UK to have been chosen and am delighted to be sharing this opportunity and year ahead with the super talented and lovely Rhoda MacPherson , as well a group of amazing ladies from around the world. Stampin’ Up! will be announcing the full team over on their blog today so be sure to check that out.
During On Stage I received this beautiful welcome gift to the Artisan Team with my own personalised stamp Eeeekkkkkk amazing! Plus, a stunning and totally unexpected gift from Tiffany & Co!
A huge thank you in particular to my mum (Anne) and Kim Fee who have been a huge support and cheered me on in my Stampin’ Up! journey, but honestly my list could go on and on …. like some very boring awards speech LOL! So, instead I shall just say a great big THANK YOU to everyone in my own and wider teams, blog hop groups and all my customers…you are all awesome!! Mmwwa x
