I'm a Stampin' Up Demonstrator YAY

Yesterday I signed up to become an 
Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator 
I have been a Stampin Up customer for at least 18 months already. Its the stamps that started my Stampin Up Journey!
It all started with viewing some handmade cards on Pinterest where someone  had used the "Lovely As A Tree" stamp....
I was in love LOL I had to have that stamp 
I didn't know it belonged to a full set of 6 beautiful stamps. I had only seen the line of 5 trees on one stamp! I believed it was a retired set so tried to find it on eBay with no luck. One day my search led me to find a Stampin Up Demonstrator who informed me that the stamp was still in the current catalogue and my stamp was ordered!.
I got the Stampin Up catalogue with my stamp and loved so many lovely stamp sets so I joined a "stamp 10" club to receive products every month and my Stampin' Up collection began!
this is the first card I made with it...
This was the first card I made using my new stamp set. It's a centre step card. I made it with the card folded so that it was kinda DL! wide but not tall. A "Thank You" card was needed for The Woodlands Team! ( they are a CMHT and have helped me a lot ) what better image to use for The Woodlands?
Looking back now, I wish I had not used so much black especially around the "Thank You" sentiment but they really loved the card.
I have used this stamp set a lot, it was used for my own Handmade cards to give out for Christmas 2015. Here's a pic of the full set of stamps which are all wood block mounted now 

Pinterest provided me with a vast array of samples on how versatile this stamp set really is. So I made a board to save the ones I especially liked 
its from here that I learned the fabulous reflection technique 
but that's another post! This set is still available in the current catalogue. Please contact me if you would like the set yourself! 
I would value your custom

So here I am,   Crafteresa UK 
an Independant Stampin' Up Demonstrator!
I have lots to learn or should I say grasp?! but the main thing for me is having FUN FUN FUN stamping, die cutting, inking and delving into even more craftiness than before and sharing it with other people I haven't even met yet! how fab is that!
So before the end of June I should have my own website set up with Stampin' Up solely to show samples tutorials videos of all that I am creating with the S U products and a place where anyone can get in touch with me to find out more about Stampin' Up, their products and maybe even join the team! they will be able to see  link to buy  Stampin' Up products from the current catalogue and the weekly clearance bargains too and be able to choose me Crafteresa UK as their demonstrator 
***for which I would be both grateful and honoured!***

I will also be looking for a good place to run a Stampin' Up informal craft group where we can have a cuppa perhaps some cake!! and lots of fun card making and crafting together \o/ I have to find my feet first and get all the details sorted out but as soon as I do I will let you know on this blog and on my facebook page.

I will be keeping this blog going as I have tons of dies, equipment and craft stash from other companies I will carry on card making and paper crafting with them and selling cards on Etsy including cards made Using my Stampin' Up products.  Of course I will here some of share the other things that make my heart sing too!

So that's it from me this morning. both Kev and I have bad coughs my poor Hubby Kev has not had much sleep all week so its what we call a slobbing day, taking a rest doing what we have to (like walkies for Lulu and food) and perhaps catching up on some sleep, I really don't know how my Hubby Kev has managed to work this week at all with such little sleep and such a poorly cough 
God Bless Him
Oh how I love my man xx
