Heather Wright-Porto, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Stamping, card making, scrapbooking, and paper crafting provide me a great creative outlet from every day life. I am a proud mamma (daughter Michaela, 21 months), happily married for almost 7 years, and have two wonderful dogs as well (Koda and LuLu).

My Stampin’ Business

I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since Oct. 2006 and love it! I started my business because I love to stamp and have a lot of fun creating homemade cards and gifts. There is nothing better then seeing the look on my customer’s faces when they’ve completed a project!

My customers are my friends. Helping them create that perfect gift for that someone special or just for themselves is a wonderful feeling and rewarding in itself.  I have a lot of pride in my work but it is more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.

Blog Services and Tools for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators

While building my stamping business I created my first blog, http://www.HandStampedByHeather.com.  I use it to showcase my artwork, my samples from past and upcoming workshops. I also have links to my monthly newsletters which detail upcoming events and special promotions. 

Although I enjoy blogging and really like the way my blog has come along, it can be time consuming to post regularly.  It was this point as well as email from a fellow demonstrator (asking for help) which made me want to launch this business and help other demonstrators.  I think a blog is a great asset for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and I want to help others showcase their artwork, promote themselves, and more.  I want them to be as happy as I am with my blog – that is my goal.
