My Story

Greetings!  I began stamping when a friend invited me to an open house.  I enjoyed it, but didn't see investing a ton of time or money.  Each month I'd go to a class at her house and come home excited about what I'd made and learned.

 About 18 months in, I started going over and using her supplies to make cards for specific purposes instead of picking something up at a store.

In another 6 months this became old, and I had to have my own tools and supplies.  At first I thought I could go the "cheap" route and pick up things at my local craft store for much less than through Stampin' Up!.  When I did this I was never happy with the results.  

My friend pointed out that Stampin' Up!'s cardstock, designer papers and inks all coordinate, giving projects a cohesive look.  I was frustrated that the "red" ink and cardstock I'd bought with my coupons were different shades (not to mention that the really cheap ink pads I first bought dried up immediately!).  So I took the plunge and invested in quality supplies from SU! and have been a happy stamper ever since.  

Fast forward another 3 years and it became apparent that it was (past) time to become a demonstrator.  I love what I do, and I love sharing it with others.  I hope you'll come craft with me!
