Cindy and I waiting for the excitement to begin!
This year’s exciting theme: Making a Difference for 25 Years! we were delighted to hear CEO and cofounder, Shelli Gardner, share the story of Stampin’ Up!’s humble beginnings. Shelli and her sister, Vonna, never thought that their tiny rubber stamp business would one day become a company with a global reach, employing 500 people, and able to make a difference in the lives of people all around the world. Said Shelli: Stampin’ Up! was created to meet basic financial and social needs. With those needs met, it was then possible to reach out and make a difference in the lives of others. She marvels, now, as she sees demonstrators worldwide doing exactly the same thing: making a difference in the world around them as a result of their involvement with Stampin’ Up!
A few new kits were announced and showed how versatile Stampin’ Up! kits can be, and rolled out the Dude, You’re Welcome kit–designed for men who normally wouldn’t be caught dead stamping! It was a huge hit. Dudes or not–we all want it! Click here to read more.
