Welcome! I’m Andrea, and independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator based in Woodlands, Manitoba. I am grateful to have stamping friends and customers from coast to coast!
Creating has always been a part of my life, whether with fabric, paper, yarn, or pencil and paper. For me, the process of creating is very fluid. I love sharing that with my people, because it shows them that creativity isn’t linear, ideas can change, and that’s OK.
I have been a papercrafter for more than 15 years, and joined Stampin’ Up! in 2016. Sharing the creativity, and making connections with others in Canada, and around the world, is what I love the most.
Being an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I get to share creativity and passion for all things crafty with people of all ages and abilities. I love that look of awe that sweeps across someone’s face the first time they make a card of their own. If it has involved the magic of heat embossing, you can absolutely see the sparkle in their eye!
I remember what it was like as a beginner, not having any idea what tools were used, or what the supplies even did. Having someone walk through things with you, guide you on the creative journey, and help you feel that sense of accomplishment is incredible. If you’ve never crafted before, and want to try something new, or, if you’re a seasoned crafted looking for something different to try, I would love to help you.
Creativity is such a great way to relax, shift gears, and is available to everyone, regardless of age or ability. Please check out my Facebook page, or YouTube channel for more inspiration!
Five fun facts:
1- I have lived in four provinces, and have visited all but Newfoundland and Labrador (that’s going to change! I would love to go there!)
2- We live on an acreage with our family- two kids, two dogs, two cats, rabbit, guinea pig, fish, 14 chickens and one rooster. Yes, they’re pets!
3- Once upon a time, I was a community newspaper reporter and editor, and worked for Canadian Forces Base newspapers in Halifax and Winnipeg.
4- Some of my closest friendships are a result of Stampin’ Up- either other demonstrator friends, or customers- some I have never met in person!
5- The pandemic made my business even more fun. While that may seem counter-intuitive, it has brought some amazing people into my life who I might not otherwise have met. I now get to craft on a regular basis with people all over the country, and some of them have become friends, too!
