Who is Melissa?

I live in Minnesota, where the winters are cold and the summers are still kind of cold. Ha! Just kidding – we can have some pretty hot weather!

I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Mathematics, which actually comes in handy when determining layer sizes for my projects! I work full time as an Accountant in Healthcare and work my stamping “jobby” part time and love what I do. I think you’ll see my passion come through in my weekly live videos, email newsletters, and every class I offer.

How Did I Become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator?

In high school, I was hanging out at a friend’s house and saw a card laying on his kitchen counter. When I asked him about it, he nonchalantly answered “oh, my mom made that card. She makes cards.” So, I marched into his living room and asked his mom about it. I quickly became her customer, and once I turned 18, I signed up to be a demonstrator! Now, seven years later, I have loved every moment of being a demonstrator. Stampin’ has always been a great creative outlet for me – especially when life got stressful as a college student!

For the past few years, I have pivoted my hobby into a “jobby.” I love to craft and create kits for YOU! I have been rewarded with amazing friendships (that I wouldn’t have had otherwise!) and last year, I even joined the top 1% of demonstrators and earned the Stampin’ Up! Norwegian Cruise Incentive Trip!

As you play with paper, I hope you find lots of inspiration here. And if you ever have any questions, send me an email. I’m happy to help!
