Jacque Craig • I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for over 16 years.  I signed up just to get the discount and support my stamping and scrapbooking habit.  But when one of my friends asked me to do a workshop, I thought I’d give it a try.  I did the workshop for her, and then one for one of her friends, and then another, and my business just kept growing!  In my 16 plus years as a demonstrator, I’ve earned six cruises/incentive trips, two Founder’s Circle trips, and more wonderful friends than I can count!  www.stampinwithjacque.com

 



Christy Fulk • I live in a small town just southwest of Indianapolis, Indiana with my husband of almost 23 years and our 3 children…Whitney 20, Steph 18, and Alex 16.  I fell in love with stamping and Stampin’ Up! when I attended my first workshop back in 2002.  I stamped my first card, and I was hooked!  I became a demonstrator just a year later in April, 2003. I do love other crafts, like crochet and counted cross stitch, but my favorite is stamping, by far.  I began as a part-time time Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, but I’m now a full-time demonstrator.  I love sharing my love of stamping, and I’m so honored and excited to be asked to be a guest designer here on Craft Project Central.  I’m really looking forward to sharing some stamping with you!  I would also love to have you visit me at my blog, www.createwithchristy.blogspot.com   

 

 

  Regina Andari  In 2003, my cousin invited me to a Stampin’ Up! workshop that she was hosting.  I had never heard of Stampin’ Up! and basically spent the hour drive dreading the whole afternoon.  After seeing the demonstration and getting to create something, I was hooked!  In March 2004, I signed up to be a demonstrator and have enjoyed every minute!  I am so addicted to crafting with paper!  A few years ago, I spent some time submitting projects for publication and was published twice in Stamp It! magazine and once in PaperCrafts magazine, but I spend my time now designing projects for classes, design team opportunities, and my blog.  I have had the opportunity to write two tutorials for splitcoaststampers and I am very pleased to do the same for Craft Project Central as a Guest Designer.  I live in North Carolina with my husband and 20 year old son (who is in college), and I know they don’t fully understand how I can possibly spend so much time with stamps, paper, and ink.  I feel truly blessed that my guys are supportive and encouraging for this paper passion of mine, and I look forward to sharing that passion with Craft Project Central!  www.workinouttheinks.blogspot.com

 

 

 

 Monika Davis • Hi!  My name is Monika Davis.  I’ve been stamping on and off for almost 13 years and it is my passion.  I was born and raised in Hungary, but I’ve lived in NH for almost 15 years with my family.  I am a SAHM to 2 boys (8 and 2).  I’ve been on a number of Design Teams, have been teaching stamping classes for years now in my local stamp store and at my home, and have been published a number of times in papercrafting magazines. www.stampnmad.typepad.com

 

 

  Michelle Wecksler •  Hi!  My name is Michelle Joy Wecksler and I am honored to be a Guest Designer for Craft Project Central! I am a self-proclaimed artist and strongly believe that we each have unique creative gifts to bring into this world.  I hope the creations I share with you will inspire you to tap into the wealth of creativity that you have inside of you! I live in Denver, Colorado and am humbled every day by the gorgeous Rocky Mountains. I share my days with my partner Michael, our four-legged kids: Loki the cat and Buddy the dog, and the menagerie of birds, bees, squirrels and other creatures that visit our backyard. I have been a Stampin’ Up!

   Buffy Cooper  •  I am so honored to have been asked to be a guest designer.  I live in a small town in the northern tip of Virginia.  I’ve been married to my husband, Mike, for 30 years, and we have two grown boys.  Among others things, I help Mike with his real estate brokerage, accompany music students on the piano at our local university, and hold monthly stamping clubs, classes, and workshops.  I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 10 years, and have loved every minute.  I had no idea what “rubber stamping” was when I went to my first workshop, but my friend who invited me said it would be fun.  She was right. www.buffycooper.wordpress.com

Beth Rush •  Hi, My name is Beth Rush.  I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 2005 when I joined to get a discount on scrapbooking supplies to scrap the year in the life my husband would miss while he was in Iraq with the military.  Two more kids and many years later I am still scrapbooking and teaching card classes and loving every minute of it. I enjoy the friends that teaching classes and  growing team members has brought me and I am looking forward to stamping for years to come.  My favorite techniques involve water coloring and the Aqua Painter is my favorite tool. I am so happy to be a guest designer here at Craft Project Central.  www.bethspapercuts.com

Julie DeGuia  Arts and Crafts have always been a big draw for me. There was a fabulous after-school art program at my elementary school where I did cool things like screen-printing and calligraphy and making books and handmade paper. And I still have some of these projects as keepsakes from my childhood! Stamping and making handmade cards fills my creative desire and need to play with fun crafting toys. I am a Stay-at-Home Mom and have one child in High School, one in Middle School and one in Elementary School. I am pretty lucky that I get to stamp during the day between planning meals, keeping the house (relatively) clean and doing laundry! www.thewaywestamp.com

Julie Warnick    I was invited to a Stampin’ Up! workshop over ten years ago. I already loved to scrapbook, but I had never tried stamping. I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but after that workshop, there was no turning back! I love Stampin’ Up! products and was a faithful customer for years. I signed up to be a demonstrator one and a half years ago, and I have really enjoyed it! I am mostly a hobby demonstrator, but along with my family life, that keeps me busy! I have a wonderful, supportive husband and four amazing kids. I am blessed to be a stay at home mom and love being involved with all of the fun and crazy family activities. I live in Orem, Utah, just south of Salt Lake City. I also enjoy writing and quilting. I am thrilled to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central! www.juliew.stampinup.net

Julie Beltramo • I live in Hollister, California and I’m married with two kids.  My daughter is in college studying to be a Speech Therapist, and my son is in high school.  I’m a teacher, but on a “stay at home mom/crafter” hiatus for the last two years.  I do plan to go back to teaching, I hope next year.  But in the meantime, I’m really enjoying the time at home and that I’ve been able to explore more of my creative side.  I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 13 years – and I’ve loved every part of it.  I’ve alwarys been passionate about making little crafty gifts and cards, and I’m super excited to be designing for Craft Project Central!  www.justjulieb30.blogspot.com

Cindy Brumbaugh Hey there, friends! I am a retired Christian home school mom who is still very active in the lives of my three awesome adult children. I live in two different states that I call home- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Orlando, Florida following my hubby wherever he goes! I was tremendously blessed when the last kiddo left for college five years ago to fill my home school classroom in both states with many wonderful ladies I consider dear friends. I so enjoy their company as we craft  and share our lives together.  I feel very fortunate to be able to travel back and forth with books on tape and the Bible as my companions on my long drives each month. Stamping is an obsession with me- I wake up thinking of ideas and go to sleep with thoughts swimming in my head. I have had so much fun being on a few design teams since I started demonstrating and blogging and was beyond thrilled to have one of my cards picked as a winner at the SU Convention last year!  I am humbled to be asked to design for CPC this month and hope you all enjoy my projects as I had a ball creating them!  Please stop by and visit me at www.CindyLeeBeeDesigns.com

Jennifer Sootkoos • Hi, my name is Jennifer Sootkoos and I am very excited to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central. I live in Kingwood Township, NJ with my husband and 2 small children. I have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for almost 10 years and I have loved every minute of it! I have always been into art and crafting and came upon Stampin’ Up in a card magazine. I then found a local demo and signed up right away! I love being able to come up with little pieces of art to send to friends and family. I find it amazing the things you can create with paper. This year I’ve had the honor to be chosen to the Stampin’ Up Artisan Design team. I am looking forward to sharing my creations with you.

Judy Strickling I started with scrapbooking over 17 years ago but I had never tried stamping. My girlfriend kept inviting me to workshops so I started with making my own Christmas cards. Eventually my passion grew and so did my “want” list! I love Stampin’ Up! products. I signed up to be a demonstrator five (5) years ago, and I have really enjoyed it! I am mostly a hobby demonstrator, but along with my family life and working at our hospital, that keeps me busy! I have a wonderful, supportive husband, 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I also enjoy sewing, crocheting, cross-stitching, walking and reading. I live in Fenwick, Michigan. I am so thrilled to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central. www.judyscreations.typepad.com

Stephanie Purvis  I believe I was born to create and share! When I learned about Stampin’ Up! about 12 or so years ago, their motto and statement of the heart really spoke to me. I have been crafty and artsy since I was old enough to hold a crayon. Though I am not formally trained in art, I do consider myself an artist. I love to encourage others to nurture their artistic side and am so excited to share as a guest designer on CPC! I live in Oklahoma City with my husband and 4 cat fur babies. We are expecting our first human baby this Fall! www.stampwithstephanie.com

During the day I work full-time as an office manager for a small company that performs workers compensation premium insurance audits I have been a demonstrator for 10 years.

I’m honored and excited to be a Guest Designer here at Craft Project Central! www.stampinwithliz.com

Amanda Corbet • I have been a Stampin’ Up! hobby demonstrator since 2009.  I love being able to get the great discount and supporting my crafting addiction.  I love to do a variety of crafts including crochet, jewelry making, cross stitch, stained glass, and fused, glass, but the one I do the most is paper crafting.  You can’t beat the instant gratification you get when finishing a card or scrapbook page the same evening that you started it!  The time I get to spend in my craft room is my break from reality.  I am super excited to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central!  www.kraftingkreations.blogspot.com

Meg Holland WOW!  Being asked to be a Guest Designer for Craft Project Central is an incredible honor!  Hello!   My name is Meg (Megumi) and I was born and raised in Japan.  I met my husband, Larry,  of 25 years while attending college here in the Pacific Northwest.  We have two amazing sons, Alec, in college, studying to become a firefighter and Ayden, who plays multiple sports that keep me busy driving him around for his activities.  I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 2009 and have enjoyed every minute of it.  During my second year with Stampin’ Up!, I earned my very first incentive trip.  Since then I have managed to earn 5 additional incentive trips so far.  I also had the honor of being on one of the demonstrator panels at the 2012 Convention and shared my secret to earning my incentive trips.  Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is extremely rewarding and gives me the flexibility for my business and family.  I have met so many friends and other demonstrators through my business and I treasure the time and great memories with them.  Thank you for allowing me to share my passion of Stampin’ Up! with you today!  www.megumisstampinretreat.com

Pat Tecza  Hello everyone!  I live in rural Ohio near the shores of Lake Erie with Ed, my wonderful husband of 37 years.  We have two grown sons who reside in California & Florida, our vacation destinations!  My hobbies include gardening, reading, travel and teaching stamping & cardmaking.  I’ve been a crafter all my life, but paper crafting is the one hobby that stuck.  In 2014 I discovered Pinterest and saw the “Lovely as a Tree” stamp set for the first time.  Through the Stampin’ Up website I was able to locate a demonstrator to order it from.  I had no clue what one rubber stamp purchase would lead to…she invited me to attend her monthly stamp class, and within six months I was hooked on their products and eager to turn my hobby into a business.  I joined the company as a demonstrator in June 2015 and I’m extremely pleased and excited to be a Guest Designer for Craft Project Central.  I hope you will be inspired by my creations!  www.ramblinstamper.blogspot.com

Sue Becker Those of us hooked on paper, glue, ink and stamps could readily agree with ‘everything you know, you learned in kindergarten’. I loved all those goodies back then and still adore them today! I started stamping back in the last century and it wasn’t until 2006 that I was introduced to Stampin’ Up! I finally made the leap to a great discount as a demonstrator in 2013 and I got WAY more than I bargained for! The friendships I’ve formed with stampers from all over the country have made an incredible, positive impact on my life. My craft space is my solace after a full day of work as a human resources professional. One of my greatest joys is stamping with new and long time friends and seeing them sparkle as they create – it’s an internal sparkle, not glitter! I hail from the metro Milwaukee area in Wisconsin.

Melissa Kerman    In 2002 I went to my first Stampin’ Up! party. It was the day before my birthday and my friend promised a fun time with neighbors. I attended, really enjoyed it and then hosted a party a few months later. After that party there was no turning back. I began stamping on my own and started dreaming in color and design. At that point I knew I had to become a demonstrator! I have been a demonstrator since March 2003. I am married and have two wonderful daughters. My husband is incredibly supportive and truly appreciates the importance of creative expression and I am so grateful for that! I love being a demonstrator, learning new techniques and teaching others. I’m thrilled to have been asked to be a guest designer and I hope you will enjoy what I share! http://www.stampinup.net/esuite/home/thecraftingtreehouse/blog

Jari Francis Hi, I am really excited to be a guest designer for the month of September!  A friend brought some stamping supplies to work 3 years ago and shared a few Stampin’ Up! stamps and paper, and after making a few things, I was hooked!  I have always loved all types of crafts, and stamping is my new love.  I joined Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator in March, 2015, and have never regretted it.  My husband is a great support, and doesn’t complain when I am up at all times of the night creating new cards or projects.  We live in a small town in north-central Georgia, and are empty nesters with 7 children and 8 grandchildren.  Please visit my blog: www.cardiologybyjari.com

Twila Davis Hi!  My name is Twila Davis, and I’m very excited to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central.  I have been a crafter as long as I can remember and always dreamed of owning my own craft store.  When I was introduced to Stampin’ Up! over 13 years ago it only took a few months to know that this was my answer and I signed up and have loved every minute of it.  I love seeing the look on a new stampers face when they finish their first card.  I live in the country about 6 miles north of Lawrenceville, IL.  I have been married for 37 years to Jerry and we have 2 grown children, Michael and Ginny.  My husband and son farm for a living.  Our daughter and son-in-law have blessed us with triplet grandsons who are now 4 years old.  My day job is watching “the boys” while my daughter works.  I craft anytime I get a chance.  Thank you for the chance to share my creativity with you and I hope you will enjoy my work.  I would love to have you visit my blog http://stampalittlelonger.blogspot.com/

Sue Lehrer I live in Blaine, Minnesota, and have been married for 41 years. Our daughter and son are both married and we have three grandgirls. In 1990, my sister came to visit from California. Her smallest suitcase contained “her new hobby”. I will never forget the feeling that I was an artist when I stamped my first card with her! In 1997, I signed up to be a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, which fulfilled my dream of having my own business. When I’m not paper crafting, you’ll find me searching for treasures at garage sales and thrift stores, flower gardening, reading or traveling. I am thrilled to be designing for Craft Project Central. www.stillstampingwithsue.typepad.com

Billie Moan Who would have ever imagined me guest designing for Craft Project Central…certainly not me!  Creating is something I “have” to do…every day.  There are always ideas rolling around in my head so when I discovered Stampin’ Up! It was the perfect match.  Creating, teaching classes and daily blogging are as much a part of my life as breathing.  The friendships created since 2009 from all over the world are enjoyed and treasured.  Learning something new every day is such a blessing and being able to pass that along to inspire others is a passion.  It is my hope you will find inspiration in the projects prepared for this impressive group and that you too will pass them along…B! www.ramblingrosestudio.com

Krystal De Leeuw •  Hi Stamping Friends!! My name is Krystal De Leeuw. I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since 2006. August is my 10th anniversary month!! I am the wife to an art-loving, surfer pastor, mom to three awesome kids (son 20, daughter 17 and son 11) who keep me busy with their water polo schedules, and a lover of all things paper and ink. We moved to Oceanside, CA two years ago and while I LOVE the weather, I miss my stamping friends. Social media has been my lifeline. I recently have gone back to school to get my teaching credential and Master’s degree, so I don’t get to spend near enough time with my stamps anymore. I’m delighted and honored to be asked to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central.  www.krystalscardsandmore.blogspot.com

Mickey Roberts •  I am so tickled to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central!  Paper crafting has been a part of my life since I was a little girl making valentines with construction paper, glitter, bits of lace, buttons, and lots and lots of Elmer’s Glue!  In 1998 I was introduced to decorative scrapbooking and shortly after to rubber stamping.  I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in 2005 and have been sharing my love of all things paper to a growing group of friends who help me to support my paper crafting addiction.  I live in East Central Florida near the Kennedy Space Center where I worked for 23 years.  My husband and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary this year and are very proud of our 5 children and their families which include 8 grandchildren.  Please stop by to visit my blog at www.paperconversation.typepad.com

Lynn Dunn •  I attended my first Stampin’ Up! workshop in July 2011 and was instantly hooked! My mom and I began attending classes together on a regular basis. We loved it so much that I decided to sign on as an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in August of 2011. Since I work full-time as a nurse, I initially signed on as a hobby demonstrator. However, with the support and inspiration of my team I have taken my hobby to the next level! I have earned 2 incentive trips and achieved Rising Star during my very first full year as a demonstrator! And, yes, I still work full-time. I have found stamping to be such a rewarding and creative outlet for me. Stamping is definitely my passion! I am blessed to have met so many wonderful and supportive people thanks to Stampin’ Up! I am also blessed to have a loving husband, two grown children and two adorable grandchildren.  I am honored to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central and look forward to sharing some fun projects with you! www.stamptasticdesigns.com

Sara Levin

 

 

 

 

Sara Levin   Hi! My name is Sara Levin and I live in Pennsylvania with my husband of almost 25 years.  I started stamping about seven years ago to help my daughter raise money for a trip to Australia.  As we attended craft shows together in the Fall of 2009, I was regularly asked if I offered classes.  I decided that was a sign that I needed to become a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.  I know my girlfriend was relieved I finally took the plunge!  I’ve been offering classes right from the start.  I love new tools and techniques that are a part of stamping/papercrafting. This has been the perfect “job” to fit in between family obligations, my love for volunteering and becoming immersed in a new book.  I’m part of several design teams and am thrilled to have been asked by Craft Project Central to be a guest designer!

Carole Anne Patterson •  I’m excited to be a Guest Designer on Craft Project Central and thrilled to share my designs. I live in Concord, California with my patient husband of 19-years, our children Bryson (16) and Olivia (14) and our little Havanese Hazel…she’s the handful. I moved to California from Nova Scotia, Canada so I’m drawn to the Maritimes and still miss home. As far back as I can remember I’ve been a “crafty person” – sewing, quilting, tole painting, scrapbooking, knitting, decorating and stamping! I’ve been a Room Mom for many years and been able to craft, teach art and do auction projects with my children’s classes. Imagine sewing with a kindergartener on your lap, it was wonderful. With my son in high school, my daughter heading there this fall, my “Room Mom” duties are subsiding (a bit) and I’m throwing myself back into my crafts. Stampin’ Up! has been a wonderful creative outlet that I get to share with others. I love giving classes in my studio and enjoy spending time with the people I’ve met through Stampin’ Up! I’ve only been a demonstrator since 2015, but I love what I do and look forward to a successful future!  www.fabric-paper-scissors.com

Sara Hoogendoorn Hi…I’m Sara Hoogendoorn and I’ve been married to a sweet and very supportive guy for 25 years. We have three adult kids that I home schooled (whew…survived that!) and two goofy dachshunds who will never grow up! I work for my brother in the office of his body/restoration shop and have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for five years. I’ve stamped since the early 90’s when my kids were young, but didn’t ever think about becoming a demonstrator until much later. That’s when I was asked to make some one’s wedding invitations and was convinced to sign on because I had a pretty big order. Mind you I was going to be a demo for ONLY one quarter and five years later I’m still doing it! I have a couple of classes a month and enjoying showing the ladies how creative they can be…even if they think they aren’t. Over the years I’ve enjoyed sewing, cake decorating, playing the piano and flute, being involved at my church, spending time outdoors in my gardens and spending time with my family.  www.simplysarastampin.blogspot.com

Lynn Starzl  I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for just over 13 years. It is my therapy! I am a mother to eight grown kids, 5 girls and 3 boys, grandmother to 26 so far, great grandmother to one, and married for 44 years this New Year’s Eve, to my husband, Calvin. Stamping keeps me busy as I am home alone most nights as my hubby is a long haul truck driver. My days are filled with running a day care in my home. I love the friendships I have made through attending and holding Stampin’ Up! events. I had the honor of being South Dakota 2015 Mother of the Year, and I even used stamping for gifts to the other state mothers. It had to be something relative to our state and also something about ourselves, so I stamped bookmarks with a pheasant stamp because South Dakota is pheasant country! I hold monthly downline stamping nights, have two clubs, and have never missed a convention, or a Leadership/On Stage. I also earned the first Getaway Vacation to Hilton Head Island!  www.starzlstamps.com

Carol Lovenstein Hi, I am Carol Lovenstein I have been married to my high school sweetheart, that I met roller skating, for 25 years. I love anything that sparkles. Polka dots make me happy. The color pink makes me absolutely giddy. How lucky am I that I can combine all three, each and every day, in a job I love!?! I purchased my first stamp set from Stampin’ Up! in 2006 to create Christmas cards. I fell in love with the coordinating stamp sets, paper, ink and embellishments — so much so that I signed up to become a demonstrator and never looked back. It absolutely makes my day when I create a project that makes me do my happy chair dance—and my goal is to help others do the same. My creativity is sparked by new Stampin’ Up! products and everything around me. Keep yourself open, you never know what will inspire you!  www.pinkstampagne.com

I really love to dabble in everything from stamped cards, traditional or digital scrapbooking, Project Life, and home decor. I have been on the Stampin’ Up!

Michelle Suit I’m a crafting fanatic from Virginia and I’ve been married to my best friend for 30 years.  We have three awesome kids, one great son-in-law, and a gorgeous five month old grandson.  I’ve been creating for as long as I can remember. If it’s a craft…I’ve probably tried it.  I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for the past 5 years and I absolutely LOVE it. I couldn’t believe how easy they make it for even those who aren’t really “crafty” to create beautiful works of art. Having all of the gorgeous, coordinating products at my fingertips is just the best. I discovered punch art around the same time and it is my absolutely favorite to create. Taking the shapes from the punches and completely transforming them into new “critters” and designs is just awesome.  I love sharing my love of stamping and creating with others. It really does just feed my soul.  www.disneysuitsme.blogspot.com

I was born and raised in the Midwest. I have been living in Pfafftown, North Carolina for the last 18 years. I have been married to an absolutely wonderful man, Mike, for the past 24 years and we have 2 children we are very proud of. Our oldest, Regan, just recently got married and is finishing up her Master Degree. Our youngest, Chase, is currently serving in the US Navy on the USS Key West. I will be celebrating my 12th anniversary as a Demonstrator later this year. It has been wonderful to see the exciting changes in our product offering over the years. My favorite product is the Big Shot. I love texture and dimension is my projects. I originally signed up to be a SU demonstrator in Sept 2003 as a good way to share the joy of stamping with my daughter Regan. Several years later, I find myself enjoying stamping even more. I love to teach people how fun and easy making your own hand stamped gifts can be. I have met several wonderful people I would have never met if I was not a SU demonstrator and appreciate all my sister demonstrators and customers for their continuing support!

Sharon Burkert • Hi all! My name is Sharon Burkert and I am excited to be a guest designer.  I have always been a crafter and have hopped from one craft to another until I became a rubber stamper.  I love paper crafting and it has happily kept my interest for 11 years!  I think it has been the learning and teaching of new ideas as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator that has kept this craft fresh and interesting for me.  As my husband always says to me “you made that with rubber stamps?”.  I am currently living in Auburn, WA (a suburb of Seattle WA) after living in Spokane, WA for 10 years.  I still consider myself an “island” girl since I was born and raised in Honolulu, HI.  www.sharonburkert.com

We are empty nesters with just one fur baby living at home with us. We have two children, a son living in Tucson, AZ. with his wife and four children and a daughter who is in the US Army stationed in San Antonio, TX. I have been a Stampin’ Up demonstrator for nine years. I did stamping and dry embossing before being invited to my first Stampin’ Up workshop while living in Gig Harbor, Washington and the rest is history! When I moved back to my home state of NC, my sister told me she was a quilter and wasn’t going to get mixed up with my stamping hobby. Well, eight years later, she has to eat her words as she is now my downline and we are looking forward to our second convention this summer! I have been published several times in stamping magazines which I consider quite an honor. I am very pleased to have been invited to be a guest designer with Craft Project Central!

  Martha Stewart   My name truly is Martha Stewart. I don’t know that there are too many similarities between myself and the real Martha Stewart other than our enjoyment of handcrafting gifts and cards. While I’m sure she would make her own ink, paper, and stamps I prefer Stampin’Up!s on-line shopping method. I am a wife to a very patient man of 29 years and a mother to 4 wonderful children, 2 grown, 1 senior in college, and 1 in 7th grade. My love for the Lord and my family are my life. Everything else is just icing on the cake, or embelishments on the card! I am a homeschool mom, a nurse by degree and a Stampin’Up! demonstrator. I love everything about rubber stamping and paper crafting, especially the women it has brought across my path.  I appreciate the opportunity to participate with these talented crafters at Craft Project Central!  www.seasonsofstamping.com

  Nancy Dawson I am a wife, mom, grandmother, soon to be a great-grandmother and a child of God! I have enjoyed paper-crafting for many years (too numerous to mention) but actually started scrapbooking my grandchildren over a 13 year time period meaning lots of catching up to do. I really enjoyed reliving their childhood thru the pictures since I was only able to visit occasionally. My how time flies!  I am a semi-retired computer technician and after building and repairing computers for over 15 years it is nice to work with paper! I was introduced to card-making after attending a Stampin’ Up party my DD hosted and have been a Stampin’ Up Demo on the hobby level for over ten years now. I thoroughly enjoy my craft and being able to create daily and being a creative coach!  www.creativewishes.blogspot.com

  Jen Arkfeld I have always been a crafty person – I started with latch-hooks when I was about 5 years old, and graduated to cross stitch shortly after, moving into lots different crafts over my MANY years, including sewing and quilting!  I will admit that paper crafting has been the one that I’ve stuck with the longest!  I believe that is because it can be adapted into so many different styles and uses.  6 years ago I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, mostly for the discount, but also because our small town didn’t have any place to purchase such great quality paper crafting supplies.  It didn’t take me long to fall head over heels with this amazing company.  I’ve created so many friendships along my journey; friends that I may not have had otherwise.  The biggest impact the company has had on me, though, was the ability to leave my full time job and become a work from home mom.  With a husband that farms, this also allowed me the opportunity to help him out a little more, but more importantly, I have the chance to nurture my children more than I could when I was working outside the home.  I am finally working a job that I am passionate about.  Crafting has been in my blood forever, and I am thrilled that I can work at something that fills my soul!  www.stampedsilly.blogspot.com

Tina Gillespie My name is Tina, and I am a busy stay at home mum (is there any other kind!) from Australia.  I have three gorgeous children and a handsome hubby. From a very early age I had a fascination with pretty paper.  It’s the section of any store that I found myself most drawn to.  I never really understood why until I was reluctantly dragged to a scrapbooking party in 2009.  I had decided I wasn’t going to enjoy myself, I wouldn’t buy anything and that I’d have a horrible time.  Boy was I wrong!  I was hooked, and finally understood my paper addiction.  I found Stampin’ Up! about six months later, signed up as an Independent Demonstrator three months after that and the rest is history!  My first passion is scrapbooking, although I tend to make more cards these days.  I absolutely adore mini albums and love making them as gifts for family and friends.  www.scissorspapercard.blogspot.com

Lauri Ingram •  I am so excited to join Craft Project Central as a Guest Designer!  I have always loved to draw and color, with Crayola crayons and coloring books my favorite toys at a young age.  I discovered stamping over 20 years ago at a small local store, and began by making party invitations for my daughter’s 3 year old birthday party.  I still have the stamp !  I also started making Christmas cards way back then!  I dabbled in various crafts off and on during the years, putting the stamping away until 6 years ago when I decided to pick it back up and attended my first Stampin’ Up class.  Yes, I only discovered SU 5 years ago but signed up immediately as a demo and have never looked back!  During the day I am employed as an IT professional in the Health Insurance industry and do my best to bring a little creativity into my life every day. I love to create and I love to teach as well, believing that everyone is creative and that items made from the heart are the best of all.   I live in Connecticut with my daughter who is 23 and has attended art school, when she is not working or sewing!  Feel free to visit my blog lauri-paperville.blogspot.com where there are also links to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

I turned my passion for this hobby into a business! I absolutely LOVE doing paper crafts! Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends. For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. I’ve made so many great friends from this business and I am so lucky to have a great husband who puts up with my messy stamp room!  When I’m not stamping, I’m an accounting consultant and I’m looking to go back to grad school.  I need stamping to keep me sane!  www.istampedthat.com

Kim Score • I am married with one 4 year old daughter and live in northern Wisconsin.  I work full time as an accountant and craft in my free time.  I have been crafting most of my life, starting way back when I was 8 years old and made my own Barbie clothes.  My favorite gifts growing up were crafting kits like sewing plastic canvas ornaments and latch hook rugs.  My first love of crafting was with cloth and thread.  For years, I made dolls and teddy bears and sold my wares at craft fairs in northern Wisconsin.  Shortly after getting married, I discovered my true calling.  I was at a craft fair selling my dolls when I met a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in a booth next to me.  I was so impressed by what a person could do with paper and stamps.  I signed up to be a demonstrator, having never stamped a card in my life.  For 10 years I was an active demonstrator.  When being a demonstrator became more work than fun, I decided to move onto other things in paper crafting.  I discovered my love for scrapbooking after my daughter was born.  I happened upon a few paper-piercing websites and immediately fell in love with the art.  I was so impressed by how a piecing dressed up scrapbook pages and cards.  The only thing I didn’t like about piecing was hand cutting, so I decided to try punching all of my pieces out instead and my own brand of punch art was born.  I started my own blog called Paper Punch Addiction in September 2009 and have been happily punching ever since!  www.paperpunchaddiction.com

Kris Kilkenny • I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator since May 2009 in Edmond, Oklahoma.  I started scrapbooking in 1976 with my great-grandmother.  Back then we used paste with a plastic stick for adhesive.  Thankfully, I was introduced to Stampin’ Up! eleven years ago when a friend invited me to come over and stamp while our kids played.  I was hooked and immediately purchased some glue sticks, the watercolor pencils, and blender pens.  My supportive husband and I have been married for 12 years and we are proud parents to two busy boys ages 16 and 7.  We have three spoiled fur babies; a Dachshund, a Wire Haired Fox Terrier and our newest addition, a baby Morkie (Maltese/Yorkshire Terrier).  www.paperfairykris.blogspot.com

Carrie Rhoades Hi, my name is Carrie.   I joined Stampin’ Up! as a demonstrator in 1999, because I fell in love!  I was hooked on that feeling of satisfaction I got when I created something.  Although I did not consider my self an artist, I could put some ink on a stamp and press it on some card stock!  My inner artist began to blossom.  When I began my Stampin’ Up! journey I could not speak well in a group and was very nervous doing my first workshops, then I found my self not being able to stop sharing my love of rubber stamping and really enjoying teaching others the joy of creating with stamps.  Seven years ago I also found the blessing of being able to work from home while raising our children.  My two little girls still talk about our trip to Hawaii that I earned.  And, I am still in love with rubber stamping and scrapbooking and feel so blessed with all the opportunities Stampin’ Up! has given me.  www.carriestamps.com

Elaine Schader •  I’ve been stamping since 2000 and joined Stampin’ Up! in 2003.  I live in San Jose, CA with my hubby and three kids.  When I was a kid I would go door-to-door selling cards so I guess becoming a demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! was meant to be for me.  I sneak in time to stamp in between driving three kids to soccer, swimming, baseball, dance, gymnastics and taking care of everything that involves being a Mom!  I love all crafts but truly enjoy stamping because of the opportunity it has provided me to meet wonderful people and give meaningful gifts!  I love making boxes and card sets and am excited for this opportunity to share some of my creations with everyone!  You can check out all my creations on my blog:  www.elainescreations.blogspot.com

My name is Tara, and I live in Ontario, Canada with my two wicked-awesome boys and my hubby.  I have always been exposed to various types of creative arts, but card-making came much later on in life for me.  I started paper crafting about 4 years ago, and only seriously got into making cards about a year ago when a co-worker of mine showed me a Stampin’ Up! catalogue.  I fell in love and became a demonstrator very shortly afterwards.  I haven’t looked back!  www.cantstamptherain.blogspot.com

Niki Toll • I am a Realtor by day, Stampin Up Demonstrator by night and Mommy by always! I live in Stockton, California with my family and started as a stampin up Demonstrator in 2008 after I had my first daughter. I signed up as a hobbyist just for the discount and to have a little “girl time” that was much needed after being a stay-at-home mom. But my hobby quickly grew into a full blown business after I learned how much fun the Demonstrator side of Stampin Up could be. I am now at the title of Manager, I have a downline I am very proud of and I teach various stampin’ classes I look forward to each week. Bless my husband for putting up with me and my stampin’ obsession!  www.stampinwithniki.blogspot.com

Rae Harper I’m married (28 years), live in northern Nevada and am so excited to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central!  Arts & Crafts have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.  My passion for paper started with origami as a young girl and in my professional career I was even in the commercial printing and mailing industry.  Talk about a love of paper!Before becoming a “Hobby” demonstrator in 2005, I taught paper crafting classes at a local scrapbook shop. In 2011, I decided to turn my hobby into a business and am having a blast!  I love the people I’ve met through this fantastic hobby and am so glad to meet all of you. www.wildwestpaperarts.com

Jennifer Timko • My name is Jennifer and I have been stamping since 2003.  At least that was when I was first introduced to Stampin’ Up! Like many people, I used to think that I wasn’t the crafty sort and went to a workshop at the request of a friend.  Well, I just couldn’t believe that I could make something so pretty!  It took me a while to become a demonstrator but once I did there was no turning back.  October 1st was my 5 year anniversary as a Demonstrator.  In my “other Job, I am a pilot at United Airlines.  I love that I get to express my creative side with my Stampin’ Up! business since they give me the flexibility to truly run the business “my way”.  I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a guest designer for Craft Project Central and look forward to sharing my work with you!  www.stampinonthefly.com

Rosemarie Diehl • Hi! My name is Rosemarie and I’ve been stamping since 2000.  I basically became a demonstrator right after I hosted my first workshop – I was hooked!  I’m happy to say that I just celebrated my 10 year anniversary with Stampin’ Up!  I always thought I would be a hobby demonstrator, as I work full time.  By day, I’m a marketing manager at an internet compnay, and by night (or any free time I can spare!), I’m an avid crafting enthusiast.  My crafting style has evolved over the years.  While my cards are still pretty simple and clean, I’ve now become quite enamored with embellishments, especially buttons and ribbon!  I also must admit that I’ve become quite a Big Shot addict – whether it be the embossing folders or the dies, I can’t seem to get enough and I love to incorporate them in my projects.  When I’m not stamping or working, I enjoy hanging out with my hubs and my kitty cat, Oliver.  I also love to run, travel, and shop!  I am so excited to be part of Craft Project Central and look forward to creating and sharing projects with you!  www.rosemariediehl.blogspot.com

  Glenda Calkins I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 8 years.  I signed on because my husband told me I needed to do something to support my habit.  I had a cousin who was a demonstrator so I booked a workshop, watched what she did and thought, I can do that!  The rest is history.  I have earned 2  incentive trips and I’ve attended every convention since I singed on; I love traveling as much as stamping so whenever there is a reason to go, I’m gone.  I have been married for 31 years and we have 4 children ages 23, 20, 15, and 12 (3 boys and 1 girl).  I have a blog www.thestampcamp.com/blog/, and I post daily; stop on by sometime for some inspiration!

Deanna Tam • The first time I heard of stamping I thought my friends were making postage stamps.  I asked them why on earth would anyone want to make postage stamps?  They just laughed at me.  So they invited me to a stamping class and there I immediately fell in love with “rubber” stamping.  I’ve been stamping for 16 years now.  Still love it to this day.  I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 2005 shortly after I attended my first workshop.  www.destampincorner.blogspot.com

Heather Van Duker  • Heather’s repertoire of skills includes competitive blog-writing, full-contact UNO, running with (and without) paper snips, “the crazy gorilla” move, analyzing handwriting, and making the famous raspberry bombe dessert.  Her works on the ins-and-outs of HGTV are Nobel prize-worthy and her couch suffers the tragic fate of being moved far too often.  Heather relishes her uncanny ability to dominate her (highly elite) stamping clubs with fantastic creations that boggle the mind and glue runners alike.  Her turn-ons include (but are not limed to): stamping, a clean bathroom, couponing, the UPS guy (WITH a box of Stampin’ Up!), and beach-bumming in that cute red bikini.  Turn-offs include: long lines, being denied bountiful Stampin’ Rewards points, and what has been phrased “Family Party Freak-Outs”.  www.stamptasticcreations.blogspot.com

Heather Stevens •  I signed up as a demonstrator about the same time I started stamping. I really jumped into the business end of things so I could bring in a little income while my husband was in school getting his Masters degree. I found a world of friends who were not just there to stamp with me, but friends who loved the social aspect of what Stampin’ up! offers as much as I do. Although I started to bring in a few extra dollars I found that Stampin’ Up! rewards us very well for the efforts we put into our business. I have been Rising Star, Demonstrator of the Year, and  earned three incentive trips. Recently I took a challenge from a friend and entered the Artisan Award Contest and won. I have loved to see how much I have learned and grown from my experiences as a demonstrator and am looking forward to seeing what else I can accomplish. www.inkincuteideas.blogspot.com
