about me, The Inky Nook, Carrie Bates Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, shop 24/7 online with me My Stampin' Up! Story

In 2012 I experienced the world of Stampin' Up for the first time at a friend's hostess party and placed my first order straight away. 

In March 2014 of being my friend's best customer (she is my upline now) I decided to take the plunge and sign up to benefit from the discount you get as an Indepedent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.

After another 18 months or so I started to offer ad hoc classes to friends and family and promoted to Bronze Elite which meant 25% discount on all my orders - fantastic right? I then had a couple of team members sign up and I decided at the end of 2017 that 2018 was going to be a great year for my Stampin' Up! business

2018

The start of The Inky Nook I hope you will now join me as my journey continues and I hope to inspire you to come and create with me.  Stampin' Up! isn't just a business to me, I've met some wonderful customers and demonstrators, it's helped my confidence and it has saved me lots of money on my craft addiction !

Thanks for taking the time to read a little more about me.

Inky hugs,

Carrie
