A craft-curious individual that never meet a craft she couldn't conquer, although sewing is still a challenge.
Yes, that is me. If you look close enough you can still see the needle mark in my thumb. Sewing was a challenge until it came out as a new technique for cardmaking and now, well I can blanket stitch with the best of them around a card! Card are the best way to make someone feel special any day, month or year.
My love for cards started with rubber stamps and several companies that made the cutest, most expensive stamps. I learned that craving paper was much cheaper and just as rewarding. Thus, the Fishers Fire Department has been warned. If the fire starts in the basement, just let it burn!
I was addicted. I own nearly every tool created including a Pazzles cutter that allows me to customize anything!!! Also an Accucut machine that allows me to quickly cut stacks of squares, rectangles and circles and so much more. I own more ink, markers, glitter and glue, in fact so much so, my neighbor says I could make cards and scrapbook for the rest of my life and still have leftovers.
Now you are asking, "Well can you use any of that and can you teach me. I picked up nearly everything I have learned from stamp camps, books, and others. My credibility comes from a year of teaching card making at JoAnn Fabrics in Castleton in the late nineties and from my insatiable desire to learn the latest technique and have the latest tools. I can teach anyone from beginner to advanced something they didn't already know, but more importantly, if you make a mistake I can teach you how to make it a masterpiece.
Failure isn't an option in card making….it is celebrated!
