Creative entrepreneurs craft their way to the Greek Islands
By Mark Hayhurst 19 Jun 2019
A group of crafting entrepreneurs from across the UK have won a seven-night cruise around the Greek Islands, thanks to their exceptional work as self-employed demonstrators for High-Wycombe-based crafting company Stampin’ Up! UK.
Stampin’ Up! UK is known for its exclusive line of decorative stamp sets and accessories for paper crafting, memory keeping and home décor. The company operates via a network of independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.
To earn this trip, the hardworking business owners were judged on a number of factors including sales, their efforts to recruit team members and their support for their teams’ growth.
The seven-night cruise will bring together the highest achieving demonstrators from across the globe, giving them the chance to enjoy some spectacular, Mediterranean scenery. Setting sail from the Italian capital of Rome, the tour group will take in the historic sites of Santorini, Mykonos, Athens and Katakolon.
Paula Gorry (pictured), demonstrator development manager at Stampin’ Up! UK, said: “At Stampin’ Up! we’re passionate about inspiring more people to take up crafting, and our Demonstrators do such a fantastic job spreading this message, by showing how easy, rewarding - and fun! - it can be.
“These trips great way of rewarding those Demonstrators who have gone above and beyond when it comes to building their creative businesses; they’re always such a lot of fun and of course we have lots of time for sharing creative ideas too!”
