HEIDI WEAVER (Coordinator)

I live in Blackfalds, Alberta, a transplant from British Columbia where I grew up.  A relative newcomer to stamping, I have been enjoying sketching and crafts for most of my life.  I am deeply interested in photography, family, helping animal shelters, and helping the underprivileged.  I keep busy catering to my two rescued cats, Mei Li and Khali Kho, as well as enjoying activities with my two awesome grandsons.  My daughter and family live in Blackfalds as well, making it easy to have frequent family get-togethers.

MARSHA REED (Assistant Coordinator)

I’m the mother of three handsome sons and grandmother to eleven beautiful grandchildren I discovered card making when a friend dragged me, under protest, to a Stampin’ Up! party. It was love at first card for me. While I've enjoyed many crafts over the years, none has caught my attention like papercrafting.  When I’m not in my studio, I enjoy reading, writing, sewing, watching movies and spending time with my family and friends.

KATH RICKS

I live in Salem, Utah. I have been married to my husband Mike for 31 years and have 3 daughters and 2 sons as well as 2 granddaughters.  I have been scrapbooking for 29 years and making cards for 10. I first started stamping with Stampin’ Up! in 2003 and became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in early 2007.  I hold weekly classes and monthly clubs in my home.  I find papercrafting relaxing and enjoy stamping with friends. 


GAIL ALLEN

I’ve done many crafts through out my life: knitting, crochet, needlepoint and cross stitch. One thing I’ve always wished was that I was an artist and could draw and paint. Then I discovered stamping and Stampin’ Up and I was hooked! Since I was a kid I’ve loved playing with paper (paper dolls anyone?) and at my first newspaper job when I learned how to design ads and whole pages of the paper, it was all done then by ‘cut & paste’ – yes, I’m dating myself – I loved it. Other things I enjoy include reading, dogs and cats (well, all animals), and photography.

LIBBY FENS

I am a long time crafter from Pearland, Texas. I've been a Stampin' Up demonstrator since 2007. I love to share my creativity through my monthly Card Buffet style classes and my personal blog, libbystamps.wordpress.com. I enjoy creating crafty things for my family, friends and coworkers. I have been married for 25 plus years, have two daughters, a cockatiel, and a few years ago became a cat parent for the first time.  

PENNY HANUSZAK

I've been married to my child hood sweetheart for 48 years, a wonderful man who’s always supported me in my hobbies and crafts and encourages me to attend events and participate in what my heart desires.  He’s a total enabler!  As a result I’ve spent countless hours learning to knit, crochet, macramé, and  I took particular delight in mastering needlework.  It’s funny, though I acquired a love of paper, type and ink at a very young age, helping my dad who was a printer set type for his old hand press, it wasn’t until 2006 that I discovered my love and passion for paper crafting and stamping.  While attending my first Stampin’ Up!® event and making a card, I was instantly captivated, and actually signed up to be a demonstrator that night.   Since then my love for stamping and paper crafting as a whole has continued to grow and blossom into so much more than I originally anticipated.  I love teaching stamping techniques, maintaining a stamping blog and participating in paper crafting challenges and would encourage anyone who is looking for a fulfilling craft to try it out.

I am Fiona and I live in a small village in Hampshire in England.  I have been married to Jonathan my best friend for 32 years this year and I have two wonderful grown up kids.  I also have a few fur babies, two dogs and two cats.  I'm also an amateur opera singer!  I started my crafting originally doing scrapbooking and, in 2005, I was lucky enough to go and live in Texas for three years!  There I found Stampin' Up! and as my demo said I would be - I was hooked.  At the time that I returned to the UK in 2005 SU were not here.  I joined up in 2008 as soon as they came to the UK but had to retire in 2009.  I was delighted to start becoming a demo again in 2016 and picked up my crafting where I left off.  I run crafting classes at my home and love introducing people to the delights of SU and seeing them also get the bug!
