Happy Stampin' Up! Anniversary to me!


Wow.. it is truly amazing to think that I have completed 18 years as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator!! 

This weekend I start my 19th year with this amazing company!

Old catalogs 19 years patty

Eb pb jb 1994I became a Stampin' Up! Customer in 1993 or 1994 (can't rmember for sure) and then signed up as a demonstrator in June 1995.

What an amazing journey it has been for our family.  Jason was only 4 when I signed up .. he has grown up knowing Stampin' Up! colors, products, policies and enjoying the cruises.  

I can't imagine my life without Stampin' Up!

My hubby and son have been a HUGE and constant support and my biggest cheerleaders!

This great. My collections start with the 1997 catty. You are a creative inspiration...look at your blog daily.

Cindy Henry

What fun to see you, your family and all those catalogs from so long ago. Your family is adorable ~ now and then !! The early catalogs had such cute stamps. Some of those should be in the "Best of" series. Thanks for sharing.


Congratulations and how fun to look back at how much styles have changed!!

Patti Corriere

Congrats and continued success with SU! Love the trip down memory lane. TFS.


Congratulations on 19 years. I bet you have seen a lot in that time. My question to you and I am sure others are thinking it. Have you kept any favourite sets from each year? What memories and friends you have made.

darla roberts

Congrats my stampin friend on such an awesome accomplishment! You inspire me as a demo and many more and of course your customers that love and learn from you!

noone could present a tour down memory lane like you have...CONGRATS!! 18 yr. & another 18 (??) to go?

Mary Roberson


Congratulations on your SU! Anniversary. I was first introduced to rubber stamping somewhere around the same time you were~isn't it interesting how much the industry has changed since then? I remember that period of time and the style at the time was somewhat country theme (for lack of a better word) inspired. That pic of Shelly is how I remember her looking at the time, when she and her sister founded SU! Thanks for the walk down memory lane:)

Denise Bryant

Congrats on 18 years! Quite an accomplishment! I'll be sure to check back tomorrow for your celebration.
I was a demonstrator way back also, although I didn't stick with it for too long. Some of those old catalogs look very familiar!


Happy Anniversary, Patty! August would have been my ten year anniversary if I didn't drop for one month. But I would not have met you if I continued with my old upline. God works in mysterious ways.

Patricia Willey

Congratulations Patty! How neat to see those old Cattys I love the raggedy dolls, bird houses and English garden stamps!

Beth Norman

Happy Anniversary. When I read your blog I feel the love you have for SU. That' a lot of years.

Maureen Wheatley

Happy Anniversary and Congratulations Patty. Your blogs are amazing and I always look forward each day to see what you have posted. You are an inspiration to me and I get so many really nice ideas for cards and projects. Keep up the good work !!!!


Happy Anniversary!!!

Your flowers are amazing!!!!!


Congratulations Patti, on your SU anniversary, what an accomplishment you have achieved! Love looking at the old catalogs and picture of Shelli and family too! You haven't aged a bit in all those years either!!

Lisa Rhine

Congratulations, Patty! What an amazing "life" you've had with Stampin' Up! Wishing you many more enjoyable years to come!

Gina Florencia

Love your post, I remember some of those cattys, beautiful family you got there.....cheers ......GinaF



Michelle Stamps

Congrats. I still have a stamp set out of one of the first catalogs. its a cute little clown holding a balloon. My favorite set out of the new catalog would have to be Wetlands.


Oh my, did this post bring back memories:) I started stamping using SU products about 1997 and you know the rest of the story. I remember some of those stamps. SU has come a long way, baby:)

Barbara Diane

Happy Anniversary, Patty! Love the sweater!


I'm embarrassed to say I still have some of those stamp sets....they're antiques, now, right Ü
You've been such an inspiration all these years! Thank you for that!
