My Story


My friends associate me with two things:  tea and stamps.  I offer visitors a cup of tea from a huge selection - no herbals, just the real thing, please!  Then I’m always eager to share the excitement of whatever new stamping creations I have on hand, which is why I’m a demonstrator!

 So, pour yourself a cup of tea and join me as I share what I love - stamping.  Catch my enthusiasm and contact me to set up a workshop.  I would love to help you and your friends create that special card, scrapbook page or gift item!

I am so sold on Stampin' Up! products that even if I'm offered free card stock, I won't use it because it just doesn't match in quality or color. 

I have found more uses for our products than just cardstock!  Of course, we have decor elements, which are designed for so many more things, but I'm thinking of our other products.  I actually used one of our circle punches when sewing a purse.  The pattern called for a piece of lightweight cardboard cut a little larger than the magnetic snap.  I had a punch for that!  Then there's quilting...  I found that I can cut a butterfly or other shape from chipboard and have a template for quilt designs.  Trace around it and then stitch through my quilt.  Or stamp a heart on pressn 'n seal paper, press against fabric, then stitch through paper and quilt for a perfectly shaped design.

I just finished making a 6x6 scrapbook for a co-worker's wedding gift (I uploaded photos to my blog - teadrinkingstamper.blogspot.com).  All she has to do is add the photos.  I'm now working on a 12x12 album for my nephew and his bride.  They are so easy to put together with our simply scrappin' kits!  I used Love Stories on the first album, but I've purchased another Love Stories kit plus the Sweet Nothings kit for this album.  How fun!

If you're like I am, the ideas just keep coming.  I trust you enjoy our products as much as I do!
