My Story

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. I love using my creativity and helping others discover and expand their own creative talents through our stamps and accessories.  Creating cards, gifts and scrapbook pages is more than just stamps and ink--it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.

My sister Barbara invited me to my first Stampin’ Up! workshop over fifteen years ago and I have loved stampin’ ever since.  I love that I can create beautiful works of art without knowing how to draw.  I can unleash my once hidden creative gene with ink and paper.  I continue to learn and expand my stamping talents and love to share each new discovery with my customer friends.  

Through Stampin’ Up! I have met wonderful new friends in my own backyard and across the country.  It is fun just to get together and stamp.  I hope you’ll join me at one of my classes to enjoy fun,  creativity and the fellowship of great stampers!



January 8, 2008--Wow! This is my FIFTH anniversary with Stampin’ Up!  When I signed up, I just thought I would have a little business at home and get some products at a discount.  I didn’t know that I had joined a "family" of great stampers across the country.  I didn’t know how much the company really cared about me and my business and how much support and assistance I would receive from Stampin’ Up! and the wonderful employees--like this brand new web site, for example. But most of all, I had no idea at all about the wonderful, close friendships I would develop with fellow demonstrators across the country and with my customers as we shared and stamped together.  Stampin’ Up! has been a real blessing in my life.  I can’t wait to see what the next five years holds!  

March 1, 2008--Thanks to my customers, lots of wonderful things are happening with my Stampin’ Up! business.  One of them is my first Stamp Club!  This is a fun way to stamp each month, feed off the creativity of friends and fellow stampers and have fun making projects I’ve designed with new products, techniques and fun stamp sets.  Plus you space out your Stampin’ Up!  purchases and earn hostess benefits without hosting a workshop in your own home.  Do you have a group of at least six stampin’ friends who would love to stamp together each month and see new products?  Let me know and we will form a Stamp Club just for your group!

I’m sorry you have been unable to see any of my individual projects on this site--well, I managed to get one up!  I seem to be technically challenged and definitely frustrated with my digital photo editing abilities, BUT I will conquer in the end--so keep checking back for more.  Meanwhile, take advanage of the great projects supplied by the Stampin’ Up! design team.  If you need a stamp set or an accessory shown on a favorite project or can’t figure it out on you own--just contact me--I’ll be glad to help!

August 11, 2008--Don’t you just love the new Silhouette Style Watch!  I absolutely LOVE silhouettes and I love this new web design!  I had a wonderful time at convention and got lots of new and great ideas that I hope to share with you.  I AM finally going to be adding my projects to the site this week and I will be adding many fun new classes and other opportunities for you to enjoy stampin’ with your friends and fellow stampers.  Watch my calendar for updates in the near future! I also plan to update you here at least monthly--but maybe more often as I add new projects and events.  Happy Stampin’!

August 27, 2008--Wow!  I finally figured out the mysteries of photo editing for this web site!  You'll be seeing more projects now.  I also have my calendar updated with new classes!  I am sooo excited about these classes--I hope you will be, too.  Do you have an idea for a class?  Do you want to know more about one of my projects?  Just let me know through the contact page!  Happy Stampin'!
