Today could be the greatest day of my life

Well I can officially call myself an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator for Swansea and my front room hee hee - I am so excited! About 15 months ago I stumbled across a project in one of the paper craft magazines which totally blew me away. I had been card making for a couple of years but had not seen anything like it. The minute I ordered the catalogue and saw Stampin' Up!'s products there was never any going back to other companies. So it is with a very smiley heart that I introduce myself to you. Although I will probably be my best customer for a while I will offer a little something to my very first customer, maybe £5 to spend on anything you like in the catalogue when you spend over £25 :D - could it be yooooooooooooouuuuuuu LOL.

This card, although you can't see it is embossed with Stampin' Up!'s gold embossing powder. I have never used any type of gold embossing powder before (have used other colours) and was so impressed with the fine detail that is still maintained on this intricate stamp. This card is for my Father who's birthday it is tomorrow.

Oooh I nearly forgot, at the craft fayre on Saturday I held a free raffle to customers and yesterday my son pulled a ticket out of the hat, the winner was Aleanna from Bristol - hooray! I will pop that in the post today for you - congratulations. On offer was some gorgeous little goodies from of course, Stampin' Up!

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up! - Stamps: fresh cuts, a bit of birthday cheer and greetings eight. Card stock: very vanilla and chocolate chip, ink: chocolate chip and versamark. Paper: chocolate chip designer series paper, misc: vintage brads, narrow twill and gold embossing powder.

Hi Emma,
Congratulations to you, I'm sure you'll have lots of orders flying through the door soon.
I know how you feel, I discovered stamping up about 4 weeks ago and i cant get enough, I keep going through the catalogue ticking the things i want [already totals quite a bit more than i can afford]
Good Luck with your new venture.
Happy Stampin - Julie xx
P.S - the card is beautiful xx

Congrats Emma on joining the Stampin' Up! family :) I enjoy popping over to your blog and because you use SU so much in your projects already, I didn't realise you weren't actually a demo all this time!!! lol.

Have a good week. Looking forward to seeing your new uploads...
