Hello Stampin friends.

My name is Yvonne Bevan, I live in Wivelsfield Green West Sussex, I was widowed 9 years ago and I’m an aholic yes a Stampaholic.  I was bitten over 25 years ago whilst on holiday in California, and can honestly say I have never looked back. Once a Stampaholic always a Stampaholic.

I joined Stampin’ Up! 5 years ago in September 2013 under Charry Wijers , I was her first down line and now she has a few more and we are called  the “Dutchesses” Charry is originally from Holland so it seemed fitting to have the name.

Charry signed under Natalie O’shea who’s group is called the “Stampin Stars” and I have met some amazing new friends being apart of this group. And a handful I can honestly say that with them my life is richer.


So onto my group, the “Dutchetts”  I currently only have one downline, a few of mine have moved on or given up and so I now need to rebuild my team.

Currently I have:-
Sue Envis-  I've have know Sue for about 7 years, and she first started by coming to my classes, she then took the plunge a couple of years ago and joined up as a demonstrator. Sue is a Hobby Demo at the moment but who knows whats in the future. 

We meet every 2 months with the bigger group of "Stampin stars" and get some worth while training, a get together for a good old laugh with the other stars and a fun time is always had by all.  Prize giving and raffles to boot plus we craft. The Christmas meetings are a great affair with secret santa (which never seems to stay secret).

We get together with Charry for an afternoon to make sure our smaller group stays in touch, and she always comes up with a great project for us to do.

I try to meet Sue every 2 months and we go over any "Stampin Up!" business changes, or items that have come up, any concerns and we always make time to craft. (you get the theme here I’m guessing CRAFT,  CRAFT, CRAFT) and there are always new ideas and projects for us to learn so they can be passed onto customers or friends.  I try to always be there for my little group to support where and when needed.

Who will be next on my list.? maybe you!!

We went to Amsterdam last year in April for the Stampin Up! Convention and boy did we have fun on that trip.  We did not stop laughing and this year promises to be even more of the same. 

I hope to add more to my team soon- if you would like to join me, please contact me and I will discuss any concerns with you and explain the benefits ( some of which can be found on the join me page).
