Doing what I love!

Why do I do what I do?!  :)  I love being creative with stamps, ink and paper and sharing my passion with others.  Making a difference with a simple handmade card really inspires me to teach and share this love of paper crafting with others.

I remember a scrapbook that I worked on for a Business club event in college; whoa, if you could see the fancy cut out shapes and bright colors now...I wonder what ever happened to that book. LoL.  My love of scrapbooking grew from there and I just wanted to know more and more about the industry, the creators, the tools, everything about paper crafting.

I am a HUGE lover of photography, taking pictures, documenting our life stories...that scrapbooking was a natural choice.  Then I found a way to take my hobby and turn it into a business.  

After being invited to my first Stampin' Up! party in 2008, I was hooked!  How fun that I could create cards, 3D projects, scrapbook pages, home decor, etc, etc, etc with stamps and ink.....and get a discount on my favorite supplies to boot!  The friendships that I have made along the way are amazing as well; It is always so much fun to get together with friends and stamp.  I wanted to be able to teach others, share stamping, and earn an extra income doing something that I LOVE.....thus, my stamping business began.

I love the quality and versatility of Stampin' Up!'s products; how relaxing and fun it is to turn a sheet of cardstock into a cute project; and the joy of bringing a smile to someone thru a snail mail card.

I started this blog to share pictures of cards and projects to inspire others to get crafty.  To show how easy and fun it can be; to teach tutorials of how to start from scratch and make a card.  Thank you for reading, enjoying, crafting, and following along on my stamping journey!

Happy Stamping!
