My Stampin’ Pretty & Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Journey

WELCOME! I’m Mary Fish:

My Stampin’ Pretty blog and Stampin’ Up! business are dedicated to sharing everything I know and continue to learn about paper crafting and card making. I’m passionate about this creative and heartfelt art and exclusively use beautiful, coordinating Stampin’ Up! products!

My Customer Commitment: I’m committed to making the on-line shopping experience feel personalized and strive to provide the latest information on new Stampin’ Up! products, techniques and promotions.

My Stampin’ Pretty Pals Stamping Community:  I’m so fortunate to be known as the “Fearless Leader” to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals Virtual Community, an enthusiastic, friendly group of hobby and business demonstrators from across the U.S.  I offer a resourceful, virtual environment where members can participate in our community at any level–even “quietly lurk” if they prefer.  As part of the Stampin’ Up! family, members enjoy Stampin’ Up! demonstrator discounts and benefits, too.  Join the Pals by purchasing the Stampin’ Up! $99 Starter Kit through me.

Background:  My husband, Scott, and I live in Madison, Wisconsin, and have been married since 1989.  We have one daughter, Caroline, who is working on her PhD in European History at Purdue University.  

I have been a successful small business owner (previously real estate) since 1993. I decided to take a “breather” and pick up a hobby in 2005. After my first Stampin’ Up! party, I was hooked on paper crafting–my first and still ONLY craft. I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 2007 and my Stampin’ Pretty business and blog blossomed from there.

Interests: When not playing with paper, stamps and ink, I love to read great fiction (the English major in me), watch independent films and walk daily (nature is one of my greatest inspirations).
