Janice started out dabbling in stamping but found the whole process rather mediocre. She had been introduced to a company that specialized in clear-mount stamps but just wasn’t feeling the love. Then a friend introduced her to Stampin’ Up and it totally changed her mind about the whole process. She was awestruck by the wonderful products and was immediately hooked. One short month later she signed up as a demonstrator and convinced her best friend to do the same. The rest, they say is “history.”
She was excited to do her first Stamp Camp with her friend! They carefully cut each and every piece for every project and carefully packed up their supplies into little cellophane bags so nothing could get lost. Their efforts really paid off until they realized they had forgotten to include the card base. Janice and her friend still get a good laugh when they think about that first event. Don’t feel alone, Janice. I am sure we all have a story that relates.
Her favorite Stampin’ Up product is ribbon. She uses it on EVERYTHING! She loves to embellish her projects with whatever she can get her hands on. Ribbon is often at the top of her list but she doesn’t limit herself to one embellishment. If you visit her blog, you will see that Janice adds something to every card she designs – ribbon, brads, pearls, or anything else that will add some bling and pizzazz! And she does a fabulous job of it, too.
Janice taught high school for 18 years and that teaching expertise has carried over into her Stampin’ Up business. She loves to teach other stampers new techniques and projects. After doing it for so many years, it just comes naturally to her now. And her customers and fellow stampers appreciate her for it. She gets her inspiration from other stampers by starting her day with a “blog surf.” She likes to see what others can “dream up” and share with her. Stamping is her therapy; therefore she seldom loses her mojo. But when she does, she just takes a day or two off and then gets back to the “surf” for a little inspiration.
Janice has just one secret to share with us about stamping. She wants us all to know that “a good glass of wine goes GREAT with stamping!!!” You know, I have heard that before J. And, of course we all know chocolate does too J
Be sure to visit Janice’s castle and see her beautiful embellished cards and projects. I know you will visit often.
