Julie, was one of my very first blog visitors when I started writing two years ago, and for sure, she was my very first Blogging Friend! Although we only live a few hours apart, would you believe we met for real for the first time in Los Angeles, California?
However, we'd been chatting via email and on the phone for so long that it was so natural to meet up in person for the first time. Let me say, Julie is one of the most thoughtful, considerate and hardworking people you could ever hope to meet!
In addition to being a simply wonderful person, Julie is an equally wonderful designer! She's a member of several Design Teams, a Stampin Up Demonstrator and she's served as a guest designer for several amazing companies, been published, and I've also spied Julie's name many times on the Paper Trey Ink Honorable Mentions list and she was the Guest Star Stamper in July 2008. Yeah Julie!!
Here's a few quick words from Julie and a snippet of her adorable project! Thank you Julie for EVERYTHING you've done for Stamp New England, you're amazing and I'm simply honored to call you my friend! See you next FRIDAY!!
I am a SAHM of 4 children. I started stamping when my first daughter was born as just a little something fun for me!! My Stampin' Up! demo always used to say, "You should become a demo" but I it took me 2 years to finally take the plunge . . . that was the end! :) Like most of you out there reading I'm sure, stamping has become a bit more than "just a hobby"! I stamp to relax, I stamp to have fun, I stamp with my children, I stamp (best) without them (ha ha!), it's become an obsession, a passion! I've made so many friends through stamping and feel like I can go anywhere in the country and "know"someone - stampers are just the best people! I'm so honored to be a part of some wonderful design teams, Paper Pretties, Kitchen Sink Stamps, Say It With Letters and I do a bit of work for Rubber Soul too! I've had the pleasure of seeing my work published in several Paper Craft publications (including some not yet released) as well as Cardsmagazine.
For my project I thought everyone might enjoy giving 2 things a try - working with multi-step stamps, and altering a shape! I designed a new shape just for our class and I hope you all will love it! Let's all get into a Spring-y state of mind!! :)The supplies you need for my class are already listed in the preliminary supply list we have previously posted but there are also 3 ink colors we will use. If you have them, bring them, if not we will have several floating around for you to use - so don't stress!! The colors are Ocean Tides from Papertrey Ink, and Tangelo & Cantelope from Memento. Your craft knife/Xacto will be important in this class, as well as a file (if you have the Basic Grey file set that's great but a sanding block and/or emery board will work too!). I'm looking forward to meeting you all!!
