Hello, and a very warm welcome to my Stampin' Up! site.
My name is Ann Craig and I've been an Independent Demonstrator with Stampin' Up! since April 2006.
- I'm so glad you have come to visit!
I love stamping and creating with inks and papers, and I love to teach, so most of my business is done face to face via classes, workshops and special events to prepare you for special occasions.. I have an on-line store for your ordering convenience, and you can see my blog and the Resources Section on this web site for lots of ideas and tutorials.
On this site you'll find information about Stampin' Up! specials, how to join my team at Stampin' Up! and how to host a stamping workshop or crafty get together.
A bit about me and my Stampin' Up! life.
I'm married - 47 years and stil loving it. 3 daughters, 2 sons-in-law and 4 grandchildren - 2 girls and 2 boys. As a retired person, my family is now my main focus in life and they are my world.
I've always loved doing creative work - I am a retired high school art teacher, experienced in teaching all age groups from non-English speaking kindergarten children to Senior Citizens at the local Community Centre. As a young child, both my parents and primary school teachers encouraged my interest in art and in high school I was lucky enough to spend a year in the USA where the art teacher in my Senior year provided so much inspiration and variety in techniques, influencing me to become an art teacher.
Becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 2006, is a dream come true as I always wanted to have my own business that revolved around art and craft.
I joined Stampin' Up! because I wanted to learn a new skill and meet new people, and now it has become a wonderful way to interact with others, indulge in some teaching, build a team of friends and earn some income.
My team has grown steadily over the years and they have helped me achieve goals and wonderful rewards from the company. This lovely hobby turned into a business without much effort on my behalf as people could see the benefits of the demonstrator discount for their personal craft supplies and the awesome company rewards, so some customers became team members so they too could benefit. You are welcome to join us too whether you want a business or a discount.
I love that I can choose to be creative every day, showing stamping techniques in classes, using fabulous products and showing fresh project ideas to my customers and friends. I have control over my schedule as I am my own boss!
I love helping each person create that perfect project for a special occasion & I 'm passionate about helping people develop their own creativity through knowledge of the products and how to get the best results via various techniques. I hope, by visiting my site, that you will be inspired to create. There are so many different styles that the Stampin' Up! products enable you to create, so there is something for everyone - beginner to master!
Thankyou for visiting my site, I love to hear your comments and will delight in providing any assitance you need with your paper craft or with joining Stampin' Up!.
