Introducing Judy Elting

Judy Eting had heard of Stampin' Up! many years before she had ever tried the product.  Her BFF finally invited her to a workshop and got her hooked!  Once the demonstrator explained the benefits to Judy, and the discount she'd get on her ever-growing list of "must haves", Judy signed up…and that was just over five years ago.  Judy was soooo excited about the product, and so eager to make sure all her customers knew everything they could about it, that her first demonstrator event lasted SIX HOURS!  Now, that's being thorough.

Judy is truly a late night stamper, usually starting around 10pm, with a cup or two of fresh black coffee.  Because Judy wears many hats, she has no time for stamper's block.  She has found that one of the best resources for inspiration is the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, and a firm deadline.  The pressure is a double-edged sword that might at first induce a brain freeze, but then creates a focus under which Judy's creativity thrives.

Judy is an equal opportunity product and technique lover—so don’t ask her to pick favorites!  Some of the tools she reaches for most often, however, include the Big Shot, and punches.  Judy also mentioned that her stamping room doubles as a sewing/quilting room, among other things.  If you check out Judy's blog, I think you'll agree that her creations always feature some manner of texture and depth.  I'd sure love to see how Judy incorporates Stampin' Up!'s new Designer Fabric with the Big Shot, and all those great sewing and quilting notions and supplies, to add another dimension of sensation to her projects!

I always love talking to Judy. We're about the same age, and she always understands what I'm talking about! Judy has been with us for several tours, and we always love having her with us. Her projects are beautiful, so we have a lot to look forward to!
