My story with Stampin' Up! started in 2010 with a career change and free time (former “road warrior” forensic accountant). I started with card making and my favorite technique was heat embossing! I ordered an Embossing Buddy from my local demonstrator, she sent me a catalog, and the rest is history! With a mile-long wish list in hand, I joined the Stampin' Up! family and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made!
Born and raised in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, I watched my mom, Pixie, create beautiful things with fabric – photo albums, picture frames, jewelry boxes and more – and her creations continue to be cherished decades later. She lost a courageous battle with colon cancer at age 49, but her love and light guides me as I pursue my passion for paper crafting. I founded The Paper Pixie in her memory in 2010.
In 2020, I was recognized as demonstrator #25 globally and #19 in the United States. The recognition really belongs to my amazing family, team, customers, and fans from all over the world who have made sharing what I love possible! I am honored to inspire so many and blessed to love what I do!
I live in Alpharetta, Georgia with hubby Bryan, kids Lillie & Nolan, and three fur babies. You'll find Bryan behind the scenes, Lillie assembling her Paper Pumpkin, and Nolan stuffing happy mail! If I'm not in the craft room, I'm either watching Outlander, walking in the neighborhood, or driving the kids somewhere 😉.
I love sharing and teaching the art of stamping and paper crafting. Creativity is contagious and I hope to inspire you! Stampin' Up! offers the best tools and products for you to express that creativity! All you need are stamps, ink, and a little Paper Pixie!
