Getting Started

I (Jessica) recently became a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator.  I have always been interested in crafts but I would always get frustrated because I would envision something but my lack of artistic ability would make it VERY difficult to make a finished product.  Insert stamping.  I LOVE stamping - it is the perfect solution - to create gorgeous images and words you just have to ink a stamp and then press it onto the paper.  I have played with stamping on and off since college but recently have been stamping A LOT more.

I love to browse blogs to learn techniques and get ideas for new cards.  On this blog I'll be sharing some of the things I have found and learned to make.  I am sure school will come up (I teach 5th grade reading) and the apartments (Joe does an after school program at a local apartment complex).  Joe has also started making wallets -- it is hard to explain but pictures will come soon.

I am new to blogging - so please be patient with me as I learn what I am doing.
