Why I Started Stamping

Statement-of-the-heart

I suppose we all have our own story on the "why" we started stamping.   Mine is quite common but just in case you're interested, here's my story.

When our girls were in high school, they were in MANY extracurricular activities and we took lots of pictures.  Both girls were also involved in dance classes outside of school and of course, we had lots of photos of  that activity as well.

So I decided to start doing something with those photos.  I had done some scrapbooking as a young girl but it had been years since I had done any.type of real memory keeping.

I had a lot of fun doing those elaborate pages that took hours to do and really made some nice layouts and albums. 

One day in the spring of 2006, my daughter wanted me to attend a party that her friend was giving... a rubber stamping party, she said.  Stamping Up, she said. Reluctantly, I agreed. I had never heard of Stampin' Up! and I secretly thought "who needs rubber stamps"?  I know...that's pretty funny, right?

All it took was putting that first stamp to ink and then to paper.  That's it.  We made a cute card and I thought how clever that was.  I could always use cards.  So my daughter and I placed an order together. We could share our new "stuff". 

Then one day, that same demonstrator who gave that party called and told me I could get lots more goodies if I just purchased the Starter Kit.  I think there may have been a special.  I know I paid a lot more that $99. But, I was thrilled to get my hands on more stuff.  And, the demo told me, you will be a demonstrator.  I told her I never planned on demonstrating anything.  :)

I got my kit and was super excited to use my stamps in my scrapbooking and of course, make some cards.   Then one day my demonstrator friend asked me to conduct a "party" that she wasn't able to do.  I couldn't do that, I said.  She insisted and I fell in love with the whole process and almost 13 years later, I am still sharing something that I love to do!
