Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.
For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is a wonderful feeling. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.
My personal journey with papercrafting started around 2003 when I decided I needed to preserve my family's memories. I initially found traditional scrapbooking was the best way for me to write the stories associated with family photos and have broadened my papercrafting skills and interests since then. I'm also interested in geneology and have recorded my family tree too.
I have won various online competitions for scrapbooking and card design over the years and enjoy the time spent papercrafting. I make cards for my family and friends and for several years have been hosting an Artist Trading Card (ATC) swap for a group of online crafty friends across Australia. I love getting out my inks and stamps and trying new techniques for each ATC swap.
I'm a qualified trainer and love sharing my knowledge in classes with beginners through to experienced papercrafters. Having used a variety of manufacturers' clear and rubber stamps for a long time, I keep coming back to the Stampin' Up! stamps. The variety of images and quality of the stamps are a winner to me. Stampin' Up! isn't just a stamping company - it's a papercrafting company. The possibilities are endless and I hope you'll join me in my papercrafting passion with Stampin' Up!
