Pootlers Design Team Glamper Greetings Week 1
Well it’s a brand new month, and that means a brand new set of designers! This month I decided to have 5 of them take part! These are a mix of demos in my direct team and also in my 2nd and 3rd level too! I love having a team and knowing that they all want to participate in the design team each month is really encouraging for me as a leader. It tells me that I’m doing something right!
So I won’t chatter on too much, but leave them all to introduce themselves. Oh and click on their names to go direct to their blog posts to see their projects in more detail. xx
Deborah Toner My name is Debbie and I have been a Stampin Up Demonstrator since May (this time). I was previously a demo for almost two years but as a hobby demo, I had to drop earlier in the year as I was unable to meet my minimums. Obviously, I just couldn’t stay away, so here I am. I am 48 years old and live in Brighton, East Sussex with my husband Sean, daughter Charlotte (10 yrs) and son Finley (7 yrs). I have loved all crafts for almost as long as I can remember, and after having studied Silver-Smithing at evening classes for two years, I found my love for jewellery making. Unfortunately, due to health problems jewellery making became increasingly more difficult and whilst looking online for a tutorial to make gift bags for my daughter’s birthday party, I stumbled upon Pootles and Stampin Up. As you all know, once you find your way there, you’re hooked! So I traded Silver for Paper and found a new love. After having my children, I lost all my self-confidence and its only since joining back up with Sam this time around that I have pushed myself more and more. With the support and encouragement from all the amazing Pootlers, I volunteered for the Design Team and am delighted to have been picked. So, thank you all, I just hope I have managed to pull it off.
Hannah McCurley Hello! I’m Hannah, and I have been a proud Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and Pootler for over 2 years. I LOVE being a part of Stampin’ Up! Not only because I get to share my passion for papercraft on a daily basis or that I get to stamp with a great group of ladies every month, but because of the friendships I have made along the way. When I’m not stamping I can be found at work, may second passion, nursing and caring for those with Dementia.
Ann Melvin I am a 39 year old mother of 2. There is only me and my daughter at home now as my son lives with his girlfriend.
I also have the cutest little Chihuahua called Daisy! I have always been into anything crafty. It was only last year that i really got into paper crafts. After watching a craft channel on TV ik new i had to give it a go. 6 months later i signed up with Stampin Up. My passion is making boxes and bags. I also love a challenge and making something that is a bit different. Joining Stampin Up was one of the best things i have ever done. I have made lots of friends and got to no some lovely people. I am so excited to be part of the November design team
Lynn Ellis Hi, I’m Lynn (aka Stamp with Peg) and am 53 years old, I am married to Ste and Mum to Steven, Sara and Casey, and feel blessed everyday for my amazing wonderful family. I have crafted in some form for as long as I can remember, but am happiest when papercrafting. I love starting with an idea in my head and seeing it come to life in front of me (although not always exactly the way I originally planned it 🙂 ). It was when I was looking on pinterest for product to make one of these ‘ideas’ I found out about Stampin’ Up! and Pootles and I was hooked. I signed up as a demo for the discount but love being part of our Stampin’ Up! family so much it spurred me on to want to build my business. I am so happy to be part of Novembers design team, and this stamp set has taken me right out of my comfort zone, which is a good thing to keep my ageing brain cells active. I hope you like what I came up with x.
