Week 4: Interview with a Demonstrator

Hi Crafters,

Well this is the last week of my "interview with a demonstrator" series, and I've been lucky to have 4 lovely ladies agree to answer my questions about them.

This week I've gone back to the South Island, Dunedin to be exact and managed to score the lovely Karen Lister for an interview...

Interview with Karen Lister
1.       How long have you been a Stampin Up Demonstrator?
I have signed up twice, since 2008 in total. First under Shelley Stewart and then when her and her up line Sharlene Torres left I was an orphan so resigned under Julia leece.

2.       What part of the South Island do you live?
I live in the mighty Dunedin.
3.       What was your main reasons for becoming a Stampin Up Demonstrator?
My wish list was over a page long.

4.       Who introduced you to Stampin Up?
I went to a card night with my Mum in Invercargill at her local shop. After that I came back and googled  stamping and card making and found Shelley Stewart who threw my first party. I signed up then.

5.       How do you like to best market your product?
I am not really a business demo, and my down line Karen Hobbs and I run regular classes.
6.       Want is your favourite all time Stampin Up Product?
The stamps, especially quirky ones like sparkly and bright.

7.       What is your favourite class technique?
Vintage style cards with lots of ripping and layering
8.       What is your top 10 Stampin Up Products and why?
Catalogue for inspiration, wood mounted stamps because they just feel nice, using strawberry slush ink sounds yummy and looks nice. Big Shot why wouldn't you knurgle something given the chance. Card stock because it all matches so well, tombow glue so quick for a demo, punches because my kids get just as much fun out of them as I do, linen thread so versatile dress up or down, chalkboard framelits how fabulous for quick tags, butterfly embosslits who knew you could make so many out of such little scraps of paper.

9.       What is the most amount of cards you've made in one day!
Not too many, probably around 20

10.   Lastly what was your funniest Stampin Up moment you can remember.

Having my dad suggest I should make a punch art baby head to fit on a particular stamp in the new catalogue.
