As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in Central Alberta I get to be creative every day! I’m excited to be able to design workshops, classes and events with you in mind! With these classes, I especially hope to tweak the interest of beginners all the way to those of you who consider yourself more “seasoned” stampers!
A little bit about me!
For the past 25 years, I worked in a high paced career in business and accounting. I have served the public in education, municipal government, as well as private industry. However really I am a “creative accountant” since I have a passion for all things handmade: beautiful cards, calligraphy, jewelry and other art.
To feed my creative passion, I co-owned Personal Imprintz, a stamping store in Red Deer in the late 90’s. As a result I developed my creativity while designing projects for customers. I had the most fun playing with new products, wide ranges of colours and interesting textures. Imagine my excitement when Shelli Gardiner visited my store when Stampin’ Up! was looking to come to Canada! I was quick to sign up when my store’s closing co-incided with their foray across the border! Due to their colour coordination with inks, papers, markers and ribbons it was the perfect incentive for a type A creative accountant!
After 14 years, I am still thrilled by a new catalogue, a totally fun and unique card design or easy techniques with incredible impact. Most of all I have never stopped growing my passion for paper crafting and colour. And I have developed a broader circle of stamping friends both with new customers and fantastic downline members. I am now ready to begin the transition from a full time business career into more creative pursuits. Why not continue your creative journey with me?
Send me an e-mail or give me a call to join in the fun. I look forward to designing fresh and fun ideas with you in mind!
