My Story

 

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, 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 the best feeling in the entire world. 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.


Walking downtown one sunny day in the early 90's, I stumbled upon a stamping store. Having no idea what it was, I went in. A number of people were assembled around a table and a woman was giving a demo of embossing with gold glitter. I stood in amazement as the gold powder was transformed by this heat tool that reminded me of my blow dryer. Ask me why I left that store after spending $75.00. I was hooked.

I love to create greeting cards, often in sets that I can give away as gifts. I truly believe that sending a card in the mail, particularly one that has been handmade, lifts the spirits. I also enjoy making gift boxes and other three dimensional items such as gift card holders, tea and chocolate treat containers. To view my past work and non-Stampin' Up! projects, go to my 'other' website.

I have come to love Stampin' Up! products particularly due to the colour coordination of inks, cardstock and embellishments such as ribbons, buttons, and brads.

I decided to become a demonstrator so I can share my passion with anyone who wants to add that personal touch for their family, friends and acquaintances.

Whether you are a seasoned stamper or new to this wonderful craft, I would be happy to help. And don't be intimidated. You will be surprised at how easy and delightful it is. Don't hesitate to contact me.
