I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!

I am so excited to share that I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator as of March 2014.  It has been a year since I joined the company and became a demonstrator and I am loving every minute of it!  Stampin' Up! products are not sold in stores, but may be purchased at home parties or through a network of independent sales consultants called Stampin' Up! demonstrators, like myself!

If you are not familiar with Stampin' Up! and Stampin' Up! products you can visit their website at www.stampinup.com for more information.  The link will take you straight to the Stampin' Up! Blog page.

I am living the dream!  I get to use and sell Stampin’ Up! products to create handmade cards, scrapbook pages, craft projects, and home decor.  I have made wonderful friends through this experience thus far and I am looking forward to meeting many more.  In July 2014, I enjoyed traveling to Salt Lake City, UT, for our 2014 Convention.  I have spent the past year trying to familiarize myself with almost all of their products so I can pass my know-how on to everyone who is interested in learning.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have ever thought "stamps" and "stamping" would be so much more than, well, "stamps and stamping!"  If you are in the Lexington, Kentucky area, book a demonstration party or in-home workshop with me to learn more.  You can email me at jamiegivens@gmail.com.

I am still painting murals, signage, kids room decor and cutting large wooden monograms www.jamiegivens.org.  I have learned how helpful the Stampin' Up! products can be for my small businesses, by using them for my own business.  I can create even better stationary designs, price tags, business cards, advertisement flyers, crafts for parties and SO much more.  

I became a preschool teaching assistant in the Fall of 2014 and I have used so many of our products in the classroom.  The kids love the punches or "smooshers" as they call them.  I brought in Valentine's day stamps and they were so happy and proud to create cards for their Moms and Dads.  I have in turn used SOOOOOOO many of the products for my own children's school projects.  My 4 year old has been a birthday card making machine since I introduced her to the products.  She makes them for her teachers and instructors all the time.  I think it is so nice to learn at such a young age to be grateful and thankful for those in your life.  She know a card can make you feel better when you are sad.  It brings even more tears to my eyes when I am having a hard day or am sick in bed and there she is with a card.

I am so thankful to have been introduced to this company 10 years ago!  I just with I would have "joined" in all the fun sooner!  Please let me know if you are interested in learning more about "Stampin' Up!

Stampin' Up! and the Ronald McDonald House Charities:

STATEMENT OF THE HEART

Stampin' Up!'s mission statement, called its Statement of the Heart, reads: "To love what we do and share what we love, as we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments ... in this we make a difference."

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES®

To help fulfill this statement, Stampin' Up! launched its Making a Difference program in 2003. This program facilitates corporate giving and promotes service among demonstrators and employees.

Through the Making a Difference program, Stampin' Up! partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). Each year, we design an exclusive stamp set to promote the partnership with RMHC, and donate a portion of the proceeds from the each sale of that set. To date, more than $1,000,000 has been donated from RMHC stamp set sales.

Stampin' Up!'s demonstrators are also encouraged to volunteer their time teaching local Ronald McDonald House guests the creative art of rubber stamping through the Making a Difference program. Demonstrators also create cards at training events which are donated to Ronald McDonald Houses. Those staying at the Houses then use the cards to keep in touch with loved ones while they are away from home.

HOW YOU CAN HELP!

You can help us make a difference. Purchase this year's set, Flamingo Lingo, and we'll donate $3 to Ronald McDonald House Charities for each set purchased.
