My Story


Pam Staples ~ Sunny Girl Scraps


I am a wife, a mom, 2x Cancer Survivor, Scuba Diving, Scrapbook & Stamping Addict toting a Canon EOS D40 celebrating life with my husband, Mike and our son, Caleb!

My crafty addiction is Paper Crafting - Card Making, Project Life, Traditional Scrapbooking and 3D projects! The first scrapbook I created documented a 1 ½ month college seminar traveling throughout Western Europe. It was a trip of a lifetime and important that I preserve my memories which led me to create my first scrapbook. As you can imagine, I was hooked on scrapbooking!

In 2004, I attended my first Stampin’ Up! workshop and loved it all.  My husband and I even used Stampin' Up! products to create our wedding invitations. I now enjoy creating handmade cards and gifts stamped from the HEART!  I’ve also discovered that rubber stamping is a natural fit with scrapbooking. 

I joined Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Demonstrator on April 4, 2013! I LOVE what I DO... creating beautiful HAND-STAMPED cards, scrapbook pages, Project Life and 3D projects. On both a personal and business level, I LOVE sharing my passion by teaching others how to get started as a Paper Crafter.  If you need anything, I would love to help you and encourage you to shop from my 24/7 store!  I invite you to check out our current promotions by clicking HERE.  

Joining Stampin’ Up! as an Independent Demonstrator wasn’t something I took lightly and it took a good friend to convince me – you don't have to be a Monet or Van Gogh!  I’m NOT a sales person and can be kind of shy sometimes. I doubted my ability to meet the quarterly minimum of $300.00 but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is an attainable goal!  Becoming a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator has helped me meet people while I share my passion for paper crafting.  I welcome crafters of all levels to join as Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and become a part of my team known as the Sunny Craftin’ Crew.  My team is located across the United States and the world as part of the Military. Click HERE to join my Sunny Craftin' Crew TODAY!

I am located in Smithfield, NC and have a wonderful craft studio.  I host crops and classes in my home on a regular basis.  To learn more about these events, check out my Calendar of Events. I would also love to help you earn free Stampin' Up! products by helping you host a GATHERING of friends in your home. If you are interested in hosting a party or gathering of friends, please call (919) 995-4564 or email me at pam@sunnygirlscraps.com

On a personal note, I am originally from Bloomington, Minnesota.  I graduated from Concordia College, Moorhead, MN with a Major in English along with Minors in Business and Studio Art.  I then moved to Colorado and attended a post-graduate Paralegal Program.   For 15 years, I had a successful career as a Corporate & Securities Law Paralegal.  Besides enjoying Paper Crafting, I also love photography, going to the beach, camping and traveling

I’ve been a Stay-At-Home-Wife since 2006 focusing on my health while dealing with infertility, a miscarriage and cancer. Then, in early 2008, my husband was offered a wonderful position with a Bio-pharmaceutical company which brought us to Smithfield, NC from Shakopee, MN.  We adopted our son, Caleb, in 2009.  To round out our family dynamics, we also have two Golden Retrievers, Savvy and Cooper, along with two kitty cats named MaCree and Callie.
