My Story

After making cards, scrapbook albums, and all kinds of craft projects for years, I finally decided to take the plunge and join the Stampin' Up! family.  With all of the great products that Stampin' Up! offers, I find I have a never ending stream of great ideas and creativity inspiring projects.  I love helping others see just how creative they can be even when you think you don't have an ounce of craftiness in you!  

This is a fun way to make gifts and store treasured memories.  I always have a blast with my girlfriends when trying new techniques and projects and I bet you would too!

I was raised in a family that didn’t shy away from creativity.  My mom sewed, needlepointed, and eventually did paper crafting.  So it was no suprise I was drawn to scrapbooking and card making.  Over many years, I went to parties and workshops and loved every minute of it.  It took me a while to make the plunge into joining the Stampin’ Up! family but I’m so glad I did.  Nothing sparks the creative juices more than being surrounded by extremely talented and creative folks and then getting to share that excitement and enthusiasim with others.  

At multiple workshops, I’ve heard folks show up saying "I’m not very good at this" or "I don’t think I can do stamping" but by the end of the afternoon they are excited to show off the cool things they have made and asking to be notified of the next workshop!  I believe everyone is creative and everyone can make cards, scrapbooks, and other projects they can be proud of.

I recently moved back to Bellevue,WA from Los Altos, CA with my husband, little boy, and three kitties.  I’d love to talk to you more about scheduling a workshop or just to discuss products and techniques over email or the phone.
