Win It Wednesday

Share

Welcome to the original Win It Wednesday! Today I am giving away a $35 Gift Certificate to Stampin' It Up! Tax & shipping, or anything over $35 not included. This giveaway is sponsored by Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator Bella De Rossi.

Stampin' It Up is a line of decorative rubber stamp sets and accessories for handmade cards, scrapbooking, craft projects, and home decor! Here is Bella's inspiration for starting her business:
" I was inspired to start a Stampin' up! business initially only as a hobby. I'd been injured at work in 2000 and consequently have been disabled since then and hadn't found anything that gave me the joy I had when I was a teacher. I found Stampin' up! as a hobby. It was very therapeutic and fun to create so many awesome gifts and such! Then when tough economic times hit our family and my husband lost his job I decided to work on building a Stampin' up! business. It gives me the joy and satisfaction I had as a teacher because I'm still teaching others many awesome and cool ideas! It has afforded me a way to make extra money and work when I can. I'm able to work it around my limitations and not the other way around. Teaching others to make handmade cards, gifts, and home d├ęcor has been a great esteem builder for me and I love Stampin' up! for that very reason~ I can share what I love with others!"

Thanks for sharing with us Bella! My son's preschool teacher has given me several cards she made with her Stampin' Up gear, and they are adorable. Very impressive!!

It started as a hobby, then she was disabled and her husband was unemployed. She was able to bring in some money and it was as fulfilling as being a teacher.
