Independent Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator
Hi! I am Renee Daley and I am an Independent Stampin’ UP! demonstrator. I was a computer programmer for a number of years until I had kids and decided to become a stay at home mom. I currently live in Virginia and have for most of my life.
My husband and I have been married since 1989. We have three grown children, Matthew, Jessica, and Andrew. I also have a Maltese/shitzu mix puppy named Buddy.
I have done a lot of different types of crafting through the years: sewing, cross stitch, crocheting and knitting.. I started out with paper crafting doing family scrapbooks about 20 years ago. I have been making homemade card creations with Stampin’ UP products for over 5 years now.
Why Stampin’ UP?
When I started out as a hobby demonstrator with Stampin’ UP! five years ago, I really just was enjoying the discount on the products. Getting a 20% discount on their products was a great benefit. I liked that Stampin’ UP! products are made to coordinate together. The company really follows the trends in the craft industry and as a demonstrator, I get to see the new products before my customers.
It also has really opened the door to some wonderful friendships with other crafters. This is the best part time job ever! I set my own hours and am my own boss. Stampin’ UP has a really great reputation in the crafting industry and they stand behind their products with an awesome demonstrator support team.
I have met other wonderful demonstrators from around the country and world by going to Stampin’ UP OnStage events. The events are a great way to connect with other demos, try out new products and learn new techniques.

I started blogging two years ago to share my project ideas and provide inspiration for others to get into paper crafting. I love to try new techniques in stamping and share what I have learned with others. Blogging helps provide a wider audience for my paper addiction!
Paper Challenge Blogs
I love to participate in other blog challenges. Here are a few that I have won.
Addicted to Stamps & More Honorable Mention #289 My card was “A Mother’s Flair”.
In addition to stamping, I also enjoy reading various genres of fiction, conquering escape rooms, traveling around the world, and golf.
I hope you enjoy my blog and find the ideas inspirational. Please feel free to leave comments on any of the projects. Thanks for visiting!
