Hi. My name is Sue Berreth – a.k.a. Stampin’ Sue.
I began my Stampin’ Up! career in 1992, over 25 years ago, at a time when in-home demonstration parties with lots of personal, face-to-face contact were the best way to share what I loved doing.
It has taken me awhile to catch up with the times and begin using my computer more for sharing with others. I’m thankful for my new son-in-law, Joseph, who has helped me build this website. I hope that you will find this blog helpful by providing you with inspiration, getting your own creative thoughts going, and encouraging you with new friendships. Keeping you updated on current sales, techniques, classes and other useful information concerning paper crafting is my primary goal. Once in awhile, I may even throw in a favorite recipe or other ideas from life in the Berreth home.
When I began demonstrating in Simi Valley, CA, my husband, Jim, and I had two little girls ages 2 and 3 years old. Since then our family has grown by leaps and bounds. We now have 4 daughters, 3 sons, 2 sons-in-law, 2 grandsons, and 3 granddogs. We have been living in Friendswood, Texas since 2001.
Besides rubber stamping, scrapbooking and paper crafting, I enjoy homeschooling my children, serving my community as the Lord leads, visiting out of state family and spending time at the beach or in the mountains. Really, I love to vacation anywhere as long as my amazing husband of 30 years is with me. In my earlier years with Stampin’ Up!, Jim and I enjoyed 5, all-expense-paid cruises earned through Stampin’ Up!. When we adopted three children all at one time in 2005, my Stampin’Up! career was put on a back burner for awhile. I was so grateful for the flexibility with this “job” where I was able to maintain my status and enjoy the many perks of being a demonstrator without feeling any pressure while we learned to do life as a larger family.
Today, I continue to homeschool, but we are down to three children living at home – Melody 16, Zechariah 14, and Allison 9 yrs old. I still do SU workshops and classes in my home, and now, I am also encouraging online workshops, tutorials, and shopping from my website.
Over the last 25 years, I have learned so much and have been blessed in so many ways as a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. My hope is to share these blessings with you, also! Please interact with me on this website – ask questions, make encouraging comments, take my ideas and have fun making them your own!
“Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men” (Colossians 3:23). Let’s always remember Who has given us our creativity and Who we use that creativity to worship.
