About Me – Nancy Dodge, Independent Stampin’ Up Demonstrator
Like you, I have been through years of being a stay-at-home mom when money was tight, a working mom when time was a premium, an empty nester when I needed something creative to do… now I’m facing retirement. For almost 30 years, stamping has been one of my hobbies (or as I jokingly say it’s my drug of choice). It was something I did for myself that would benefit others when they received my handmade card.
I became a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator in 2020 (a week before the pandemic hit) because I was purchasing supplies to make cards for my church. By being a demonstrator, I am now able to purchase those supplies at a discount. BUT…not only did I get a discount, I also realized how much I love spreading the joy of creativity with others! Doing workshops, Facebook Lives and sharing the cards I make hopefully inspires you to find your own creativity.
Card making is very rewarding. Not only to I get to create something others appreciate, but most of the time I make cards I am with you. We give each other ideas for our cards and socialize at the same time. I especially love stamping with my daughters!!
I’m passionate about helping you find your creativity through cardmaking!
If you are anything like me, then seeing all the wonderful products available from Stampin’ Up feels overwhelming, there is so much to go through. I suggest you start with all-inclusive kits for you to get the feel for how to make cards & crafts and how different products work together. I love that you can use the stamps over and over to make more cards with some additional products like Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes. The best part of all it that whoever I give a card too is so touched by my time & effort I put into make that card just for them.
I have created a gallery so that you can see how the cards come out before you purchase your first kit. I’ve even included some samples that use the supplies in the kit but in different ways.
