The three sayings included in the set are “Birthday Celebrations,” “You’re on my Mind,” and “Thank you for your friendship.”

I joined Stampin’ Up a little over two years ago. It was one of the best decisions that I ever made. It has changed my life in so many ways, and made me so happy. I thought I’d share with you some of the reasons why.
I love being a Stampin’ Up demonstrator because:
- I get to purchase all of Stampin’ Up’s fabulous products at 20% off (and sometimes more!)
- I can earn the money I need to support my stamping habit, and not take money out of the family budget.
- I have a really fun way to earn more money for both extras and necessities.
- I have numerous opportunities to earn free stamps from Stampin’ Up.
- I get to see new products first, and have a chance to buy them earlier than the general public. Sometimes they are only available to demonstrators!
- I have made amazing friends through Stampin’ Up — both other demonstrators and people I’ve met through workshops and classes. It was a huge support system for me when moving across the country!
- I have the “me” time that everyone needs so desperately.
- It’s my business, and I can work it as much or as little as I want.
If any of these reasons appeal to you, I have to tell you that now is a fabulous time to sign up! For only $75 you can become a demonstrator! You get over $80 worth of product for that, not including all of the business supplies! You can sign up online, right through my website, just click Join Now at the top. You’ll need my password, which is SUwithYapha. If you have any questions about becoming a demonstrator, or anything else, feel free to get in touch.

Coming soon! A Parade of Paper Blog Hop to showcase each of Stampin’ Up!’s beautiful Designer Series Paper packs. On May 8th and continuing ONLY through that weekend, I am part of a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from Stampin Addicts who are hosting a virtual tour through our blogs. Each blog will showcase a different package of the fabulous Designer Series Papers from Stampin’ Up! and will also link to another blog participating in the Parade of Paper Blog Hop. You may start at any post, stop and pick it back up later, or visit all of them in succession. You will eventually wind up back at the blog where you started.
Just like Cinderella at the ball, however, all the fun ends at midnight on Sunday, May 10th. The tour will be over and the blog links will be broken. So check back here on Friday, May 8th at 8:00 am when the Parade of Paper Blog Hop links go active and join in the fun by clicking the links to visit all of our blogs. We hope you will be inspired by all the creative projects and beautiful scrapbooking pages and cards.
NOTE: Some blogs may have additional contests or blog candy. Each will show off our expertise with one particular package of DSP, as well as give you a little taste of our personalities and our blogs. You can find all of us in the chat threads at Stampin’ Addicts, a great site for demos and non-demos alike!
