My entire Stampin’ Up! story is one to share over a pot of coffee…..so I will give you a taste of it here.
I love to stamp and strive to share that love with everyone! I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 2000, and throughout my years associated with this company I have gained so much more than I can put into words. The best parts of this business are making friendships and sharing creativity. There are so many magical moments I would have never experienced without having Stampin’ Up! in my life. I am so very thankful for all the opportunities being a demonstrator has given me! Did I mention that I LOVE STAMPING?
Let me know if you want to hear the entire story!

Great cards Robin. Thanks for sharing.
I’m loving your Friday Crafting Play dates. Haven’t seen them live. Do you do them at a specific time?
Thank you, Jo Ellen! I appreciate the feedback! I have been live around 1:00pm.
I love the 12×12 one sheet wonder that you came up with. I just found you on YouTube and I have been watching all your videos. You do a great job of showcasing your talent for design. I
Michele, thank you very much for your feedback! I sure appreciate you finding my work helpful! It is so much fun!!!😁
Thanks for sharing your passion. Have watched most of your YouTube videos – they are so informative especially for a newbie to card making
Thank you, Rosa, for giving me that feedback, I appreciate it! I am new to making videos and wonder all the time about how to create good content. I’m excited for you to be beginning a card making journey. It has been life changing for me, and can be a very satisfying hobby!
Also let me know, as a new card maker, what kind of information you need, ok?
Robin I’m new to scrapbooking I’ve gotten some of the essentials. I’ve been watching your Youtube videos and really enjoy them. I live in Yukon, Ok just west of OKC and I don’t even know if there are StampinUp demonstrates here. Is it possible for you to be mine and you could guide me in the items I need to purchase. Have a wonderful week and thank you again for your gifts and talents!
Hi Lynn! Thank you for finding me! I would love to help you figure out what you are needing. What is the best way for us to chat? If you want to email me then we could exchange numbers and a phone call. ReallyRobinStamps@gmail.com
Love your tutorials. Thank you fir sharing your clever ideas.
OMG, I just came across your YouTube videos a couple days ago and have the running all day on my TVs (yes plural—kitchen and craft room)….. I love your easy to follow tutorials and love how you show what you are doing, then do it….I have stopped several and replayed to catch them. You have inspired me to get back to my crafting room…. I have been a “collector” not a “user” for several years…. But now am back at working on a few of your easy but beautiful designs! Thank you SOOO much for the time and effort you take in doing your demos!!!
Hello and welcome, Kim!!!!! Your comment has made my day-your generous praise humbles me, thank you! It makes me very happy to inspire others and I hope you dust off your supplies and bust out some projects!! How wonderful! Come back often! Where do you live? I’m in IL. Thank you again for leaving me a message!😁
I live in Fairborn (Dayton) Ohio….. Moved here in 2017 from San Antonio Texas….I look forward to following you!
Robin: this is Linda Cahill, I was wondering if there is a printable color swatch chart that I could download? I would like to swatch my ink pads. I see the colors in the book but wanted to swatch them myself to see true colors. Thanks so much and hope you are doing well. I had knee replacement surgery on the 4th and recovery is painfully slow but doing organizing things.
Your card templates are terrific! The lay out makes it so easy to follow the directions. Always looking for your post and the new card ideas. Thanks.
Hello Marlene! I appreciate your feedback very much and love that you left me a comment! My mom’s name is also Marleen – very special to me! Let me know how I can help you in your stamping journey, ok?
I LOVE all of your ideas!!! Thank you for sharing everything and more important, sharing instructions. And for taking the time to put them in PDF form.
Hello, Angella! Thank you for your sweet message. I appreciate you, and am very glad to share ideas that help others.😁
Found you on YouTube, love your ideas!
Hello, Michelle! Thank you for finding me! Welcome! What can I help you with specifically? Are you a new stamper? Where are you located? 😄
Hi there Robin. I am from New Zealand and am to a demonstrator but only just started a few months ago, i have stumbled across your videos, they are really inspiring. Thank you for that.
Hello Monika and welcome! I’m so happy you are a demonstrator and wish you so much fun! I was blessed to be able to visit New Zealand for my 50th birthday and just loved it! I’m very pleased that you are finding value with my video content and appreciate you letting me know your thoughts. You have made my day!
Thank you for such clear instructions in making cards. Yesterday evening I made the 6×6 “scramble” and produced 5 cards so quickly! They also look good. 🙂 I have a question – do you also share the sheet of paper showing little squares of the DSP and the corresponding colors? They would be a great asset for me, if you can share them. 🙂
Hello Geraldine! I am so very happy that my templates are helping you make cards because that is my goal! I appreciate you letting me know, thank you! I would be happy to share the DSP sheets with you if you let me know which ones you need in particular.
Do you crate the one pagers with DSP square samples and colored card stock? Where can I get those?
Am I able to create those myself?
Hi Charlene! Thank you for leaving me a message! I do create those DSP sample pages myself. You can create them yourself too! I just cut 1″ -2″ squares of the DSP and punch out 1″ circle of coordinating cardstock and glue everything to some inexpensive cardstock. If you send me an email I will send you a file that has the headings for each page of the current DSPs. OK? email@example.com
So glad I found such a wonderful teacher.
Hi Penny! You words are very sweet, thank you!
I appreciate your simple yet detailed instructions as you walk us through card making. I am new to card making and wasn’t sure how to proceed. Your videos spark my creativity bug! Thank-you 🙂
Hi Michele! I am very humbled to read your comment, and appreciate you taking the time to tell me how my work helps you! 😁
You truly have a gift for the craft and am so thankful you enjoy sharing it with all of us. You have given me such inspiration. I love to stamp but struggle with ideas sometimes and your videos just light a fire. Can’t express how much I appreciate all your wonderful ideas. Thank you!
Hello dear Sarah! Your words have buoyed me this morning and I thank you for being a part of the Really Robin world. I hope we can meet someday! Keep on creating my friend!
I love your cards and your instruction videos!
Hi Ann! I appreciate you leaving me a comment. I love to help others be excited about making cards!
Hi Robin. Just needed to change my e-mail address and resubscribe to your newsletter. I love that I finally found you. I feel that you are one of the best card designers and presenters in Stampin’ Up. You are not only that, but one of the best Teachers, you also give us so many samples to share with us. I could go on & on. Just can’t express how much you have inspired me. Love all of your videos!
Hello Carol, and WOW, you are so very generous with your praise, thank you! I’m thrilled that my work has led to inspiration and lots of cardmaking happiness. I surely appreciate you taking the time to share your appreciation with ME!
Robin…I enjoyed being reminded about the 1.25″ square DSP squares projects. It seems we sometimes get so excited by new techniques and designs to try, that we forget how much fun these old “faithful” designs are. I needed this boost to get back to some basics to use up so many of my bits&pieces I’ve been saving. I will look forward to seeing more of your tutorials!!
Hi Pam! I hope you can put a dent in your scraps and create lots of cards with squares! I agree with you in that tried and true ideas are always a delight to go back to. Happy creating!
