About Me

Mel's Card Corner | About Me

I’m a Tennessee girl who now lives in southern California. I love drinking coffee, creating handmade cards, reading, traveling, and cheering on my beloved University of Tennessee Volunteers football team. I’m a total geek and love all things related to technology & gadgetry including my iPhone, iPad Pro, Apple Watch, MacBook Pro, and Kindle. See, I threw a non-Apple product in there at the end just to keep things interesting. 😉

I was introduced to the world of stamping and cardmaking almost 15 years ago by my best friend. She would send me beautiful handmade cards for my birthday, holidays, etc. and I decided I wanted to learn how to do it, too. I attended a cardmaking workshop near my home and was immediately hooked!

In 2010, I made the decision to go back to school and continue my education. Since I was still working full-time as well, I had to take a break from paper crafting since my evenings and weekends were now focused on my studies. Once I completed my degree in the fall of 2014, I quickly returned to my love of stamping and started making cards again.

As weird as it may sound for someone who loved to stamp, I actually knew very little about Stampin’ Up!® until the Fall of 2015. I stumbled across the YouTube channel of one of their top demonstrators and started watching her videos and live chats pretty regularly. It wasn’t long before I placed my first order through her, and soon after that, I took the plunge and decided to sign up as a demonstrator on her team in early 2016.

While I am an Independent Demonstrator with Stampin’ Up, I still love and use products from a variety of companies. I love mixing and matching my Stampin’ Up products with the products from other companies. I also serve on the Design Team for a couple of other companies, so you will see me participating in special events, blog hops, etc. for those companies from time to time as well.

Since I’m not a full-time business builder with Stampin’ Up, you will likely see me using retired products occasionally, too. I can’t afford to get rid of something just because it’s retired, especially when it was something I loved enough to buy in the first place. LOL As with most things in the world of stamping, it’s quite easy to substitute and use similar products which are currently available.

With all that being said, I definitely accept and welcome Stampin’ Up customer orders and would be honored to be your Demonstrator. I don’t believe in high pressure sales tactics or inundating people with lots of emails, so if you would like to place an order, you can do that by clicking here. You can also use the “Shop Online 24/7” link in the Stampin’ Up drop-down menu in the navigation bar at the top of my site (just beneath my header) at any time to place an order.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my designs!
