Well, today I updated my banner to reflect that fact that I’m into my 21st year with Stampin’ Up! and yes, I’m feeling proud of that accomplishment.
I’ve seen many changes during my 20 years with Stampin’ Up! from stamp styles through accessories. Would you believe that when I became a part of the Stampin’ Up! in 1996 most of the stamps we sold were not exclusively Stampin’ Up! stamps? They were by Printworks, Stamp Francisco, Posh Impressions, Stamp Oasis, Hero Arts and more, including Stampin’ Up!.
Those stamps that were rubber mounted were just that: mounted on rubber! Ugh. I remember getting a darling Button Bear in my starter kit that was rubber mounted. Eventually I purchased a wood mounted set as well.
It’s interesting to see that Stampin’ Up! is still creating (updated) hearth and home type stamps as well as sassy women!
It’s also nice to see just how far we’ve come since 1996. I’ll search through my catalogs to see when Stampin’ Up! dared to go to exclusively Stampin’ Up! designed stamps. But that’s for another day.
