My favorite part of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is the friendships I have made and the fun that comes with creative collaboration.

I am part of a large group of demonstrators under the leadership of Patty Bennett (I am in awe of her $2 million dollars in sales).  Our team is aptly called the Luv2Stamp group.  When I joined a little over two years ago, I was welcomed into the group by Patty and several other demos from across the country. We have a Facebook group where we share ideas, offer encouragement, and celebrate our successes. The kindness and generosity of this group amazes me.

I quickly became friends with one of our team members Leticia Hernandez, aka DIYDiva, and started crafting with her virtually via Facebook Messenger.  We hit it off quite well!  She and I had an amazing road trip to OnStage in Salt Lake City last year. Since then we have gotten together in person or via the web to collaborate on projects. When the pre-order for the Product Coordination Release was announced we decided to make a sampler using the Pleased As Punch DSP.

Leticia shared her sampler at our next team meeting and before you know it, we had a group of demonstrators asking us to do a class for the sampler - so we decided why not?

I have to give major props to Leticia for her preparation for the class and for her ingenious tips. You need to follow her Facebook page, DIYDiva, and catch her Live videos - she has sooo many great tips!  She created spacers from chipboard to help with the layout and amazed everyone with how perfect and easily everything was aligned.  Being a numbers gal, I handled the registration and budget side of the class. We each love the design process and let one idea lead to another to come with the finished project.

The class was held last Saturday and we had a blast!  We had six of our teammates attending including with our fearless leader Patty.  She is featuring her sampler on her blog today so be sure to check it out here.  Everyone had fun creating their sampler and putting their special touches to make it their own. This was a very inspiring afternoon!

We took the theme of Product Coordination to heart! We made gift bags from the Pleased As Punch DSP to hold the extra goodies they would receive with their kits.  In addition to the gift bags we had decorated acetate boxes that held an ink spot and sponge also using the Pleased As Punch DSP and the Tulip builder punch.  

Coordination is one of the many things that sets Stampin’ Up! apart from other papercrafting companies.  It is one of the things that appealed to me as a customer and led me to sign up as a demonstrator.  The reason I will always be a demonstrator is the friendships I make with other demonstrators and my customers.  I have found my tribe and want to be a part of this forever!

Would you like being part of a team of like minded crafty people?  If you have ever considered becoming a demonstrator, I would like to invite you to join my team.  You too will become part of the larger Luv2Stamp group as well as a member of my Stamp-n-Paper Junkies.  Joining during Sale-A-Bration has added freebies with your starter kit.  If you would like to get more information, feel free to ask me anything without any pressure from me. I love what I do and want to share that with you so you too can know what Stampin’ Up! has to offer.
