My Story

I love all types of crafting, but a few years ago I discovered that I really love creating unique and beautiful cards, many of which you can see here! (It feels so good to see the smile you put on someone's face when they realize the time and love you put into making something special just for them)

In March 2014,  I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to undergo surgery, chemo and radiation.  I was feeling pretty low, so I requested a card from an organization called Card Care Connection.  
I received a gorgeous handmade card with an uplifting and caring message from someone I didn't know. That card really touched my heart and made me feel so good, and I knew right then, I wanted to begin creating cards.   I found Stampin' Up!, and as they say, the rest is history!

I was born and raised in Texas, but I have lived in Atlanta, GA since 1996 after a job transfer brought me here.  I still work full-time with IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) and have been with the company for 28 years. 
My husband, Reid, and I have been married since April 2000, and we have one daughter, Caroline, who is in the 8th grade.

Caroline also loves stamping and this is a photo of her assisting with a Make-n-Take at an event.  She's a natural!


It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned crafter, or if you’ve never crafted before, Stampin’ Up has something for everyone at all levels.   The products are top-quality, and they've taken the guess work out of trying to find that perfect cardstock color and coordinating it with inks and papers.  (Click here to take a look at all of the amazing and gorgeous products)

I would love to hear from you and I look forward to helping you unleash your creativity!
