My Stampin' Up! Story
I'm a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in New Westminster, BC (just outside of Vancouver). So how did all this start? I came to Stampin’ Up! in a very unique way. In 2001, Shelli Gardner (Stampin’ Up! CEO and Co-Founder), came to Canada to explore expanding Stampin’ Up! and I was fortunate to meet her and be invited to join a Canada Focus Group. Fourteen of us traveled to Convention in Las Vegas (we were like deer in the headlights with over 5,000 enthusiastic US demonstrators!) to learn more about the company and give our feedback on what we felt would work best for Canadians. Over the next several months we continued to participate in assignments and when Stampin’ Up! launched in Canada in April, 2002 I was ready! I’m Demonstrator #7 in Canada and proud to be one of the first!
My Commitment to You
I’m committed to providing excellent customer care and support to my community of stampers! I love to share my passion of stamping and scrapbooking through my blog, newsletters and videos as I continue to learn more about the craft of papercrafting.
I was born in Toronto and moved to Vancouver when I was in High School. I’m married and have two adult children – Carly (31) and Ian (27) and a Yellow Labrador Cooper.
Before I was a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I worked for a non-profit, social service agency for over 23 years - now I love what I do and love sharing the art of papercrafts with my customers and team!
