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.


I started stamping about 10 years ago.  Well let’s put some truth to that.  I started collecting  paper crafting products and tools about 10 years ago.  I never really used them for the first 4 years.  But then I met my upline, Pam D’Urso who inspired me in a whole new way, and then I started using the products not just collecting them.  Going to stamp camps and meeting some great ladies was a pleasure that I looked forward to each month.

Four years ago, I made the decision to join Stampin’ UP! primarily as a hobbiest.   One of my goals was to start a blog to showcase some of my work and activities.  Feel free to visit and subscribe to my blog at stampnpunch.com.   

I eventually started having stamp camps and have built up a group of customers that I truly enjoy being with. 

I am also very active in our local Stampin’ UP! demonstrator group.  Keeping up with new techniques and products is essential to stay current with the market . 

Aside from Stampin’ UP!, I am a grandmother of 4 handsome boys and I’m a BIG St. Louis Cardinals Baseball fan.   I also have a full time job.
