On the weekend, I was creating projects in my stamp loft and my husband came and put this photo on my table… he found it going through a box of old photos!

Patty Bennett, Cottage Crafts rubber stamp card class teacher June 1995


It’s from 1995, just 12 days before I signed up to be a Stampin’ UP! demonstrator!!!


For those of you who know my Stampin’ UP! story, you have heard me say that I was a rubberstamping / card making class teacher at a small shop called Cottage Crafts for a few years prior to joining Stampin’ Up!

Due to waterfront development here in Hercules, the cute little cottage was being torn down for a residential development, and the store was closing, which is why I immediately signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator on June 22, 1995!

You’ve probably watched or heard my Stampin’ UP! Story, but I’ll share the video again below in case you are new and haven’t heard about my Stampin’ UP! journey.

This is a photo taken in 1993 or 1994 in front of Cottage Crafts with the store owner, my son Jason, and a dear neighborhood friend Christine.
