Stampin' with the Stars - Become A Star in June and Get Two Free Stamp Sets!

Strs-62416This is a peek of the card and video tutorial that I made to share with my Ink and Inspirations Stars Team. 

It is an honor to be the team leader of this great group from across the U.S.  Our group is composed of both hobby and business demonstrators who love stamping and Stampin' Up! products!  Both are extremely important to the make up of our group!

What is a hobby demonstrator?

Hobby demonstrators are those who purchase Stampin' Up! for themselves and maybe have family and friends that purchase from them. 

Business demonstrators may hold events, parties, classes, or participate in craft fairs, etc. to supplement or earn an income. 

Both hobby and business demonstrators love the craft and sharing the how-to and/or their completed projects with others.

We'd love to have you join us!
