I'm Tracy, wife, mother of two and grandmother of five. I have a background in education, and love history and crafting. Before emigrating to Nova Scotia, Canada, I spent many years tracing our ancestors in the UK. There's a certain sense of satisfaction when you can put a name to a picture or a story to a face. Being the family historian has allowed me to create visual records of people, and connections that I can share with other members of the family now and into the future. In the hustle and bustle of the modern world how nice it is to think back to a simpler time, when gifts were home-made, meals were home-cooked and people had time for themselves and each other.
I've been an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator since November 2013 and it's incredibly rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers, followers and friends. For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion or certain someone is the best feeling in the world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is more than just stamps and ink - it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.
I'm proud to be a part of Team Canada, a small group of Demonstrators working with Dale Hampshire our Canadian Demonstrator Development Manager, to improve and enhance the experiences of all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators (and customers) across the country. I am also a regular contributor to Inspiration Canada, the monthly newsletter created exclusively for Canadian Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. In 2018 the Head of the Paper Pumpkin team at Stampin' Up! invited me to submit alternate project designs for their monthy Facebook Live events. This is a huge honour for me. In addition I share other alternate projects as part of the monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop.
Stampin' Up! products are not just for making cards. Think of all the projects and gifts that can become just that little bit more personal with the addition of stamps, beautiful patterned papers, punch art, ribbons and other embellishments. Tags and flags are great for bake sales and potluck meals, and there's so much joy in making parties and other occasions truly memorable. Scrapbookers too are discovering the benefits of using Stampin' Up!'s Memories & More memory keeping products. It's never too late to dig out your old photos and start recording those precious memories.
With everything that my 'hobby' has brought to my life, I want to offer you the opportunity to experience the fun and excitement too, so if you live in Canada why not ask about joining my Crafty Canadians team. Contact me for more information about the benefits of becoming a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, whether as a hobby or a business.
