My Story


Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.

For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.


My personal journal began when I joined Stampin Up in April of 2003.  Being a demo has brought so much joy and new friends into my life and what a wonderful hobby for me.   I was raised in Chicago, worked over in Europe (UK, Germany, France) for a year and then was transferred to San Diego in Nov of 93.  I met my husband Brian in June of 95 and we got married on July 29, 2000.  I work full time for a leasing company and we have two beautiful dogs Reno who is an Akita chow/Shepard mix and is 13 and Maddie who is a Flat coat Retever and is 19 months.  They are the joys of our lives and so spoiled, but the best dogs in the world, without them my life would not be complete.  I have made so many wonderful friends through stamping up and now we even have our own Demo club called "The Rubba Sista's" in the North County area of San Diego.  I love my sista's and all the events we put on together. Stampin up is my passion and I love it.
