My Story


Aloha & Welcome!

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.


BIG Mahalo for visiting my site!

My love for crafting began years ago when I was given a hand-made birthday card.   My first project was actually when I was in high school, I made a plastic canvas tissue box for my Mom.  Than as my pictures began to pile up, I decided to try scrapbooking.  And, who doesn’t love a good luck charm for Vegas, so I got into Beadie Buddies and made some lucky frog’s with jade-colored beads.  Than when my mom got sick, her love for orchids got me into flower decorated pens.  Well, after years of dabbing into every other craft, I decided to try card creation and signed up for classes at various craft stores.  Than one day I met this wonderful Stampin’ Up Instructor and that was it, hook, line and sinker, she snagged me.  I became a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator.
 
Once a month, a few of us get together to create beautiful and stunning cards from plain and ordinary cardstock.  If you would like to host a party, become a Stampin’ Up!

Happy Crafting!!
