My Story

 Stampin' Nanna

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 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 really enjoy teaching others how to create their own projects and let them experience the joy this brings to others as they share their creations.  We just keep passing on the joy!

I have two married children, three gorgeous grandsons and a beautiful little granddaughter.  I also have 3 furry babies to spoil and love.  Toby Joe is a Border Collie mix and believes he is my studio mascot.  I also enjoy the loveable antics of 2 Cocker Spaniel puppies,  Lilly Belle and Buster Bo Jangles.  Last, but not least, I have a loving husband who puts up with all the lively antics of 4 grandchildren and 3 furry babies.  If I’m not busy with grandbabies, puppies, church or family activities, you’ll find me in my studio paper crafting and creating for many happy hours each day.

My personal journal...
I have several places that I hope you'll check regularly.  On this website, you'll find my 'Projects Gallery' which features projects I've created, as well as projects from Stampin' Up!  I also have my own personal blog:  My goal is to frequently upload photos of what I'm working on in my studio, and offer sneak peeks at projects for upcoming classes and events.  I also add frequent postings to FaceBook and Pinterest.  Be sure to check them all for lots of inspiration.

It is such a joy to share a card or project with someone and see the happiness it brings to them.  It is also a joy to be able to teach classes in my home and see the excitement everyone experiences as they learn to create something special.  Come join in on the fun!  Let's make something beautiful today.
