An avid lover of pencils and paints in my school days, I completed an Advanced Certificate in Art and Design majoring in Painting with my minor in Printmaking and discovered the joy of rubber stamping not long after that.
I have been stamping ever since, completing several altered book projects, dozens of card and Artist Trading Card swaps and many other Off The Page Projects. I dabble in scrapbooking thanks to my inspiring friends and a family of 9 nieces and 2 nephews and the advent of digital photography.
I live in Melbourne's bushy outer east with my wonderful Tony, an international triathlon competitor. Together we love running, discovering new places, exploring historic sites, volunteering, getting out in the fresh air, cooking up a storm for our large extended families or just pottering in our vegie garden together.
I’ve been making pop-up cards and 3D paper items as far back as I can remember. I was looking for a way to turn my love of paper-crafting into a bit of a business – it always helps if your hobby pays for itself!
I first saw Stampin’ Up! at one of the major paper-craft shows in Melbourne in 2007 and they had a big banner up saying, “Stampin’ Up! Needs All Kinds of Demonstrators”.
As soon as I started flicking through the stunning catalogue, I knew I had found the company for me, the catalogue is so beautiful, the hostess rewards are SO generous and I could just see myself being on the other side of the table at the craft shows showing people WHAT I LOVE!
And ever since then, I have had an absolute ball sharing my love of stamping with many new friends and acquaintances through fun home workshops, classes and stamping events.
I am a business builder with a growing team of fun, friendly, creative and supportive ladies from all over Australia, who would welcome you most warmly if you decide the Stampin’ Up! family is for you too!
I hope to see you somewhere along the way with ink on your fingers and wonderful creations to inspire you.
I really fell on my feet when I found Stampin' Up! If I think of the dozens of really dear friends I have made now, that I didn't have a couple of years ago, and the joy we have sharing what we love (ink & stamps) with more new people, and the excitement of our growing teams . . . it makes me wonder what on earth I used to do!
Stampin’ Up! has rocked my world!
