What a wonderful glimpse into Shelli's life! Thank you! I remember receiving a handstamped thank you note from her when I was a demonstrator, simply for a thank you note I had sent. I still have that card. It made such an impression on me that she would take time to encourage someone she had never seen when there were THOUSANDS of much more important demos out there. I appreciate how she is real and continues to touch lives.

I was the second Vermont Stampin' Up demonstrator way back when and I loved being a part of this amazing company!! Very supportive and the products are amazing!! I had to step down due to life events but miss it to this day!
Shelli is an amazing woman who encourages her demonstrators to be the best that they can be!! TFS!

It is nice to know about the person behind Stampin Up. Though I am not a demonstrator, I have a great demonstrator and every year the products that Stampin Up churns out is amazing.

This is the first time I've met Shelli. Didn't know a thing about her so thank you for the introduction! What a neat story! She sure has come a long way! I love all things Stampin Up!


I have always been impressed by the things I've read about Shelli and by the awesome company she built. This article reinforces how terrific she is, but in a down to earth way. She has done more than I could ever hope to, yet she is humble and has her priorities straight. She is a great role model, and thanks for showing us more about her thoughts and life (and beautiful family too!).

She sounds like an awesome lady! Good to get to know her and her story. Stampin Up is a beautiful product line and she should be very proud of all that she's accomplished.

I've been a demonstrator since 1995 or 1996 lost track, but I'm still here in and out depending on my life events but I can say every time I've met with Shelli she's been amazing! This is a lovely article on her, I hope in the future we meet up again. As I begin to rebuild my career with Stamping Up! God Bless you and the family.

I've been a demo since 2004 and it has been an awesome "job". The company she has built is awesome. I have met her a few times at Conventions and she is always gracious and genuine.

Feeling blessed to have met Shelling at convention and to be part of a company that aims to empower and support all its members.


What a great interview! Stampin' Up is what really started my love of stamping/crafting! I recently reconnected with SU products and still love the quality and products!

Thank you for sharing, such a great interview! Love Shelli and Stampin' Up!


Nice to meet you Shelli. So many wonderful responses to the questions. Fortitude, commitment to family and work and just having fun have definitely made your company such a success today. All the best going forward.


This was a great interview, thanks Megan and Shelli. I love how she calls them wake up calls, the experiences we have that remind of what is really important. I agree 100%.

I loved reading this post, and being as I was one of the Demonstrators in my jammies at Shelli's it brought back such sweet memories.
Thanks for letting others know Shelli even more and to see what an amazing woman she really is.

What I admire most about Shelli is how humble and genuine she is. At Convention, even though she is so busy, she will take the time to briefly chat or have that photo op with you. She is a woman of GREAT faith and I know that faith is what guides all she does. I love that she shares her family's trials and triumphs so we can all lift her up in prayer and thanksgiving. I have been blessed to have her example to emulate and am glad that I made the decision to become part of her Stampin Up 'family'. Thank you Shelli!

When I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator 10 years ago, I had no idea how much it would change my life. I've made friends all over the world with people I would have never met. The power of sharing our creativity brings us together, whether in person or virtually.

I have met Shelli several times through the years and can honestly say that she is one of the most gracious, authentic, caring people I know. We are all blessed by her vision and her love for us all comes shining through each time we see her. Shelli Gardner is the real deal. Shelli,thank you ever so much for giving us the gift of Stampin' Up! Love you!
