My Story

Hello from Joan!!

I have been stamping for over 15 years, and have enjoyed this hobby above all other crafting hobbies I've ever done. Now that I am a Demo, and have friends over to make my projects, I enjoy it even more!!

Through the years, I have used several different stamping company's supplies. And although I still hold my entire "stamping collection" dear to my heart, I've always considered Stampin' Up! products to be better than most. In fact, their high quality Card Stock, Inks, Markers, and matching Designer Series Paper just cannot be matched!! Now that S/U offers "Clear Mount" stamp sets, I feel they are the best!! Not just because of the convenience of being able to see where your image will be stamped, but the top quality of foam backed 'rubber', rather than 'clear polymer' like most other company's clear stamps, makes them produce perfect, crisp images.... it's the best of both worlds!

Below, you will find some of my past projects. Occasionally I search the internet for tutorials on different card folds and 3D projects. And, although I find nothing at all wrong with a "CASE", I do strive to make each project my own original design & creation! I also provide printed, detailed instructions created by me in 'Microsoft Office Word'. (By the way, if you don't know what "CASE" means - it stands for "Copy and Stamp Everything" you see in a book, magazine, catalog or online picture.)
If you're local to Lancaster County, and would like to sign up for a Monthly Stamp Club, give me a call!! Place a $15 minimum catalog order each month, and you'll get a month to reap the hostess benefits!

Or, if you just want to come over to 'play', you can pick 3 projects to make for $10. Choose from my past club projects, or send me a picture or description of something you would like to know how to make. I would love the challenge! ;)
