Hello, I’m Claire. I live in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, but thanks to the internet, run my online Stampin’ Up! business right throughout Australia. My family consists of my husband, my two adult sons, our rescue cat Teddy and our White Swiss Shepherd Simba.
I was a scrapbooker on several design teams before I joined Stampin’ Up!. I had begun to experiment more and more with stamping on my scrapbook layouts, so when the opportunity came up I thought I would join just for the discount. Things just grew from there because people love these products.
I now mix memory keeping of all sorts with cardmaking and stamping. I’ve now been a demonstrator for over 17 years, joining the first year Stampin’ Up! came to Australia. I am one of Australia’s top demonstrators, and have consistently ranked for annual awards and earnt Incentive Trips from my first full year with Stampin’ Up! (Stampin’ Up! requires me to tell you that earning Incentive Trips is not the average experience of a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and is only achieved by approximately 1%). I am so grateful to to have met so many Stampin’ Up! employees, demonstrators and customers from around the globe, and now call them dear friends.
With Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass, when she attended our team event in Melbourne in July 2023 to celebrate 35 years of Stampin’ Up!.
I balance being creative with leading and mentoring one of Australia’s largest and most active Stampin’ Up! teams, the Art With Heart team. We have a great group of ladies Australia wide (some running business, others just enjoying a personal discount) who chat and support each other in our super active online team forum, and get together whenever we can at OnStage events and team days.
I also love gardening (love Roses, Camelias, Hydrangeas, flowers to cut, veggie gardening, container plants and succulents), to travel when I can, going to the movies, good coffee, food wine and conversation. I think my favourite days are days at home with the family though 🙂
I’m passionate about continuing to make others happy by helping them to become creative, or to save some money on their craft supplies. My other passion is to help mentor other women who want a flexible home based way to earn some money so they can spend more time with those they love.
