5 years ago I decided to become a Stampin Up Demonstrator.
I had never heard of Stampin Up, until Chris and I were crafting one day and we were
CASEing a card that called for a pricking template that was made by Stampin' Up!.
I sourced the internet to find one - and stumbled across Julie Kettlewell's blog.
That incident has changed my life considerably!
Not content with just buying the template, I decided to join Stampin' Up!
with Julie as my upline - whom I affectionately call mummy, (though
truth be told I am old enough to be her mummy!)
I have travelled the Stampin Up journey, guided and encouraged by Julie,
who has supported me every step of the way.
Were it not for her having a little chat with me at Convention in Germany,
I would not have made the effort to achieve my Silver 2 status, which I enjoy today.
I love being a SU Demo and my extended SU family of fellow Julies' Jems,
we have great times together.
I was reminded of just how far and how long I have been on this journey with SU
when I received this card in the post this morning.
It's from Mummy Julie.
Thank you so much Julie for the sheer pleasure of knowing you and Stampin Up for the last 5 years.
Thanks for all your help and encouragement, which without your support,
I would never be where I am now - a Silver 2 Demonstrator.
I owe you so much.
Lots of love
P.S. So as you said in the card Julie - here's to the next 5 years!
