Meet the Elite

Angela Sargeant

Hi I’m Angela Sargeant, I’ve been making cards for 8 years and scrapbooking for 4.  I enjoy all sorts of papercrafts including making ATCs and collage on canvas.  I joined Stampin’ Up! on the first day they opened in Australia on 3rd April 2006, one year later I’m a Senior Manager and loving every single day of my ‘work’.

Joanna Wassens

I am a Kiwi originally but now an Australian too!  I live in McGraths Hill, Sydney.  I’ve been living in Australia for 10 years now and been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since July 2006 and loving it!  I joined Stampin’ Up! to fund my papercrafting hobby and am now running a successful business

Claire Daly

I am scrapbooker at heart and have been published in Creating Keepsakes, For Keeps and Scrapbook Creations. I started dabbling with stamping on my scrapbook pages last year and soon discovered the quality and versatility of Stampin’ Up! products. I was instantly hooked, and decided to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in January 2007. I now love sharing my passion for scrapbooking and card making with the other demonstrators I mentor and the talented papercrafters I meet in my classes and home based workshops

Leonie Schroder

I am Leonie and live in Sydney’s south west. I have been with Stampin Up for 8 months and have loved every moment – I am currently a Senior Associate and will be promoting to Supervisor by the end of this month. I love sharing my stamping passion with others at demo’s and workshops and seeing the joy in them when they make their first card – its priceless

Karen Oliver

Hi, I’m from Mt Riverview NSW I’ve been stamping for nearly 10 years and joined SU in October 2006. I’m totally in love with all the SU products, it’s really changed the way I think and feel about stamping. And I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds. I love helping other people see their creative potential after stamping for the first time.

Sharon Davis

I’m ’30 something’ and have been married for 16 years. Warren and I have 4 beautiful children that range in age from 13  to 6 years. I work full time as a science/ag teacher and have been scrapbooking in my spare time for the past 7 years. I’ve been drawn into stamping care of Stampin’ Up and their amazing product range. I spend every Friday night creating away until my eyes no longer stay open!

Vivian Tomren

I went to a Stampin Up workshop in March 2007, it was love at first sight. I have been scrapbooking for 18 months, so I am quite new. But cannot wait to incorporate the delish stamps and colours of Stampin Up into my albums. I love sharing what I love with likeminded people

Melissa Garland

I live on the Central Coast of NSW. I started scrapbooking after the birth of my son and soon became hooked on all things papercraft. I spent several months looking around to find the best way I could do this for a ‘job’, I found Stampin’ Up and have not looked back. I am now a Stampin’ Up Independant Demonstrator and am able to share my enjoyment of papercrafts with family and friends.

Kerri Hunter

I am new to stamping, 2 years ago I was shown the basics of stamping from a lovely lady in Talbot and everything else I have learned from the internet, magazines, the lovely ladies in the elite stampers group and the growing customer base here in Ballarat and surrounding districts.
I am married with 2 grown up children, I signed up with stampin’up! In July last year and have never looked back, it has been the most amazing experience I have ever undertaken.

 Tracey Eaton

Hi! I’m Tracey and have been married for 13 years to a long suffering Andrew, we have 2 children, Patrick(9) and Eliza(2). I actually waited a little bit to sign up to Stampin’ Up! – all of 6 weeks! I have dabbled in stamping and papercrafts for a few years now, but my obsession really grew once I discovered the internet and some of the amazing ladies in Elite Stampers through online forums. The obsession grew even further after finding Stampin’ Up! and their amazing range. I have now been a demonstrator for nearly a year and have recently resigned from my ‘real’ job to concentrate on both my family and the wonderful world of Stampin’ Up!. I am truly amazed and grateful for the mentorship and friendship I have received through stampin and scrappin. Looking forward to this new challenge!

Marelle Taylor

I’ve been stamping for nearly 10 years, and I joined Stampin’ Up! in May 2006. Stampin’ Up! has enabled me to share my passion with others, and turned my hobby into a legitimate business. I love teaching stamping to others, and hold classes in my home and around Sydney.

Jayne Mercer
Hi I’m Jayne Mercer, I’ve been stamping for 7 years and scrapbooking for 5 years. I’ve been published both in Australia and the US. I love stamping and papercraft work and when Stampin’ Up! launched in April 2006 it didn’t take me long to send in my recruit forms. I love what I do and could spend day in, day out doing it! My non stamping/scrapbooking friends just don’t get it so being able to hang out online with the rest of the Elite Stampers is fantastic.

    I am from Port Lincoln S.A. and am lucky to share my stamping passion with Alisa each week. I have been a stamper since 1992 and I don’t want to say how many stamps I own as I lost track a long time ago. SU has renewed my passion and I am now even scrapbooking a little too. Can’t wait to join in some of these challenges with you all.

    I have been crafting for years but managed to get into scrapbooking by a friend about 6 years ago now and from that followed into card making too. I became a SU Demonstrator last November 2006 and love it, don’t do that many workshops for people but I have a few customers which keeps me funded for my stamps I need (want really!).

    Just wanted to say how stunning some of the cards are on here, have looked through and hope to have a go at the challenges in the future.

    Great job girls putting this site together!

    Cards on show are great . TFS. Have been browsing for a while , can all SU demonstrators join in ? I have been with SU since March 2008 and am at Supervisor level .

    • Stampin’ Up! demonstrators in Angela Sargeant’s downline can post on the site. Anyone else (demo or not) is free to do the challenges too of course, but they’d have to post it on their own blog and link back to it in a comment (best if it is on the challenge that they did) here if they wanted to share it on this blog.

    Finally, I have entered into a challenge ! SC3 which is an old one I know but I do like the card that I commented on. Hope that you like it ladies. I must say though that it is so easy to lose oneself in this blog as there are so many challenges , so many talented ladies here and some beautiful creations shared.
    thanks from Shirley-Anne
