My name is Kim Gavarra and I’m an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Australia! I’ve been with Stampin’ Up! since they launched here in Australia and have enjoyed every minute! I’m also a mother to 4 great kids.
I started stamping 17 years ago after my first daughter was born. I instantly fell in love with stamping after attending a class at a craft shop. I had always loved stationary, pretty paper and creativity, and while I was never “artisitic”, stamping was perfect for me!! For years I had admired Stampin’ Up! products, which were only available in the US. Finally in March 2006 I discovered that they were launching here in Australia! I joined in April ’06 without hesitation. I wanted to share my love of Stamping and Scrapbooking with some of my friends and buy my supplies at a discount! I was never into “party plan companies” but I knew deep down that Stampin’ Up! was different. This was something I loved, the company is run with a high level of values and professionalism and of course, lots of FUN!
I have 4 children who are now 11, 13, 15 & 17. Stampin’ Up! has allowed me to be home for my children since they were babies, take them to their sporting activities, help out at school etc, while having a “creative outlet” that I have shared with some wonderful people! It’s been fantastic to have something “for me” amongst the mayhem of being a busy mum to 4. I have made the most fantastic new friends, shared my passion, and found the balance between being a mum and doing something I love outside the home.
The past ten years have been an absolute ball! Each year I have earned awards for sales, leadership, team building and more. I’ve also earned 8 Incentive Trips and placed in the top demonstrators in the country and the world. I would love to share my passion for stamping with you, whether you want to check out our products, learn stamping or scrapbooking, or join Stampin’ Up! like I did! Please check out my site and feel free to contact me with any questions!
