Stampin' Up ... and patience!

Earlier in the year I read somewhere that a company called Stampin' Up were coming to the UK. And quite a few people were quite excited about it! Now I had never, ever heard of Stampin' Up, so fired up the old tinternet and looked them up.

They are a direct sales company that started in America some 20 years ago. Their forte is rubber stamping, and they have branched out in accessories as well, mainly for cardmaking, but obviously incorporating scrapbooking, and other paper crafts too. Think Tupperware, but stamps!

So, I then had to wait for the date that all this was going to happen by. Eventually it was released that it would be 15th November. *drums fingertips* Rumours that the catalogue would be online prior to that date never actually came to fruition, so on the long awaited Glorious Fifteenth the catalogue was viewable. Yummy yummy gorgeous themed stamp sets, and the most amazing ideas of what you could create with them, so I signed up. I'm now official ... and still waiting! For my starter kit so that I can play and start ordering some more.

CONGRATS on becoming a demo! Since I've been a demo in the US since 2002, it is hard for me to imagine anyone not knowing about SU!, but I forget that it's not "everywhere on the globe" yet... you're going to love it, and I'm sure your customers will, too. Glad to have you part of the SU! family. Enjoy!
