I started stamping just before my first child was born in 1982. I was making up a scrapbook for his birth and wanted to use all kinds of things. Now, I had been scrapbooking since I was 16 years of age. It was a lot less than scrapbooking is now but it let me save and share my life highlights.
I got introduced to Stampin’ Up! when I went to a workshop one of my friends had. I was sold on it then. I love the quality of the paper and how you can have everything match the same colors. I did start selling more as a hobby and for the discounts for me in 2005. Meanwhile, my life became hectic between 1982 and 1985. I had 3 children, two boys, and a girl. I am also working hard as a nurse with one full-time job in the emergency room and two other hospitals that I picked up hours in the emergency room. My scrapbooking got put aside for working and raising my 3 children.
Now to the present, I retired in January 2015 and moved to Mesa, Arizona. I got started on my scrapbooking as now I had 5 grandchildren to scrap for too. A year ago, I decided to join Stampin ‘Up! One, get a discount, and two, make a little extra money as I love teaching card making, scrapbooking, and 3D items. I would love to teach you, and your friends contact me if you are interested.
