My Story

A Little About Me...

I began as a hobby demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! in 2003, just purchasing enough products to get that discount, and I loved it so much that I eventually made the decision to do it full-time!  In 2011, I began hosting monthly classes, private classes, and customer workshops out of my Too Cool Stamping Studio in SW Fort Wayne, IN. I also began providing Class-To-Go kits options for my online customers.

Since then, my business has steadily continued to grow!  I was honored to be named one of the Top 100 demonstrators in the country in 2015 and was invited to the final Founder's Circle event that celebrated that group of elite demonstrators.  I've also earned the Grand Vacation incentive trips in 2015 and 2016! 

My enthusiastic Too Cool Demo Team is also growing and growing!  I offer a monthly team meeting with a fantastic mix of fun and business building resources that is perfect for both hobbyists and those wanting to earn a flexible income.  I'm finding that I love training and inspiring those in our Too Cool community just about as much as I love stamping!  I know you'd love our stamping family, so think about joining us!

My favorite part of demonstrating is showing how to do simple techniques to create "too cool" projects and sharing those projects to stampers around the world!  Even if they’ve never stamped before, it’s fun watching my workshop attendees delight in how easy it is to make fabulous hand-stamped art!  Making cards is what I do best, but I’m always experimenting with other kinds of projects. See what I'm creating—visit my Too Cool Stamping Blog for daily project ideas and inspiration!

My business name, Too Cool Stamping, was named in honor of my mom, who always exclaimed that my cards were, "Too Cool!"  Just like her!  Her passing in 2008 was the turning point in my life that led me to embrace my stamping passion!

When I’m not stamping, I enjoy spending time Andy, my husband of 25 years, along with our extended family.  I also love reading, walking way too many miles on our local trails, listening to music, crying at romantic comedies and This Is Us, cheering for Hoosier basketball, having dinner with friends and dancing whenever the mood strikes me! 

I look forward to getting to know a little about you, too!  If you ever have a question about a product, project or technique, I'll help in any way that I can, just contact me!
