My Story


WELCOME!

If you want to learn how to make fun and beautiful cards and other paper craft items
 

YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!


My goal is to inspire those who want to work their crafty muscles.  I believe that when God created us, he instilled in us the ability to make stuff.


You already have the ability to be crafty – all you need to do is use it!  I’m just here to help you along the way.  On my blog, I want to show you fun card making/paper crafting ideas and techniques, share with you the great products Stampin’ Up! ® has to offer, and inspire you to make your own creations.  You will also find other crafty/DIY projects and get a glimpse into my life outside of crafting.

I’M MACKENZIE, CREATOR OF MACKENZIE MAKES AND AN INDEPENDENT STAMPIN’ UP! DEMONSTRATOR.


For as long as I can remember, I have had a love for crafting.  Over the years, I have tried my hand at many different craft projects.  Some of my favorite forms of crafting are: card making, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, crocheting, and most recently, working home décor projects.


In October 2013, I signed up to be an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I was already familiar with the company (because of the many shows I went to with my mom when I was younger), so it was a fairly easy decision for me to sign up.  Since becoming a demonstrator, I have enjoyed making cards, especially for birthdays and Christmas, and using the products when I scrapbook.


When I’m not working on crafts, I am spending time with my family.  My husband, Matt, and I got married in July 2011, just before our senior year of college.  Our first daughter, Anna, was born in October 2012 (she shares a birthday with her daddy).  She is very active and talkative, and definitely keeps us busy.  Our second daughter, Lily, was born in June 2016.  She always wants to be up looking around, and loves smiling at her sister.


I also have a passion for youth ministry (it’s what I went to school for).  I enjoy getting to connect with students and being able to guide them as they learn more about God. We currently help out with the youth program at our church and love every minute of it!
