In July 2014, I was honored to be in the Top 100 Demostrators of the Year with Stampin’ Up!. This will be my 18th year as a top Demonstrator. This is thanks to my awesome hostesses, customers and super team of demonstrators. We all have so much fun! I also have a full time job with my family business. It is nice to know that I can enjoy a successful Stampin’ Up! business, have fun stamping, and have a full time job. I can help you get started whether you want to enjoy the Stampin’ Up! discount and make money as a demonstrator/sales rep, meet friends at ladies stamping nights out, or to learn how to express your creativity. Creating fun projects gives every stamper a feeling of happiness. I know this because I see the smiles it puts on faces. I am not only excited to see my business grow, but I am thrilled to share it with you!

Christina Crawford: I am Christina Crawford and I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 12 years. This video is titled How to Make Adorable Baby Announcement. But I will also show you how to some cute invitation to showers, some great ideas when you don't know if you are having a boy or girl and I will also show you some great little thanking notes and baby gifts. So stay tuned and watch those clips.

Take a look at these items here and you will get a good idea of what you are in for. Some great color schemes, some duplicatable ideas. You can have fun creating thanking notes and birth announcement using photographs, some really fun ideas using different colors whether it's pink or blue or green or yellow. Youll also see how you can use an alphabet set to create beautiful framed ideas. My friend Jennifer made this one, I couldn't wait to show it off. You will also see that instead of making just an announcement, make it a scrapbook page. This is for everybody that gets one, can save it in their scrap book for years to come. Let me place some of the tools that you will need to get some basic stamping done, some basic paper crafts done. First, you will need cardstock, you will need to have a paper cutter, it's going to be a very valuable tool. You can get a paper cutter that has this scoring blade on it too. Also some punches, theres a lot of punches out there, kind of gives you a quick shortcut. Have some adhesives on hand, some permanent adhesives, some adhesives that are also temporary that can be re-positionable and get some that are also photo friendly. Acid-free tape of that it will not harm your photograph, should you choose to put a photograph on to your projects. A bone folder comes in handy especially when you do rub-ons, and you will see some ideas with the rub-ons. You can even use a stapler, it's very trendy and fun and can even find colored staples at office supply stores.

Let me tell you a little bit more about me before we began. I have been Stampin' for while, I think it's a fabulous hobby. I think everybody should have a hobby and this is a lot fun to do with friends. And just I love to go to the gym and I like to do classes with people. I like to do things with people, this is a very social hobby. So not only can you do this at home by yourself, but you can invite your friends to come over and just really laugh about the things that went on during the day and create beautiful projects. Especially if you have an event to plan for like baby showers or even weddings, it's so much fun to have your friends over for that. I have been married for several years and more that several, but we won't get into that. My husband is in the army do I am army wife. So I have moved all over the place and I have met a lot of friends and the best way to keep in touch with them is to make dome fun cards and fun notes that are different and it brings their date, they tell me when they get it in there mail box. When I get their cards back and I go to the mail box, let me tell you how much it's nice to see when you don't see just bills and advertisement. But you see cards from friends, birth announcement and thank-you notes. It's just a wonderful thing to experience really. So enjoy and have fun and enjoy the baby projects that I have planned for you.
