Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Welcome to 2012!

Wow!  I never thought the time would come that I would get to have a blog.  Living in the country and having dial-up has made any internet activity a very long and frustrating process for me!  But the time has come...we are getting rid of our internet and moving up in the world!  Yes, you heard me correctly...NO MORE DIAL-UP!  I am beyond thrilled and can't wait to start blogging. 

My blog will consist mostly of Stampin' Up! cards and items that I make, with an occasional post about my family, who is my main motivation.  I chose the name stressfreestamping for my blog because I have finally gotten to a place in my stamping where I do it to relax and release my stress. I used to think that my cards had to be 100% unique and very detailed.  Creating cards like this were causing me headaches and ADDING stress to my life.  I was at a low point where I didn't even want to walk into my stamping studio.  Then Stampin' Up! came up with this new slogan "My Way" and I realized I could stamp how I wanted and not have to worry about how many layers the card was or how original it was.  My style most days now is very simple and uses few supplies.  Some days I do like to change things up and make a very detailed card.  It doesn't matter because I am doing things my way now!   

All items that I post will be Stampin' Up! Only (SUO) as I am 100% dedicated to this company!  I love all of our products because of the high quality and coordination that they offer.  Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator helps me to pay for this hobby that I love, as well as give me some extra income.  It has been so rewarding and has motivated me to find my inner creativity.  I can't wait to start sharing some of mine with you!
