Introducing Kathleen White

Kathleen White was first introduced to Stampin’ Up at an Open House that had many different sales vendors.  A Stampin’ Up Demonstrator had scrapbooks on display and was coloring a card with pastels which piqued Kathleen’s interest.  The demonstrator urged her to have a party to learn the techniques, and this woman later became her upline!

Kathleen’s favorite SU products are the punches as she doesn’t have to worry about straight stamping and she loves the quality of the products.  She is quick to add, however, that she can’t name just one favorite product!  She fought using the Stamp-a-ma-jig for a very long time, thinking it was too difficult to master, but now realizes how much time and cardstock it has saved her.  She has her own crafting room which she tries very hard to keep straightened once a month, but in between, loves to close the door on her “creative chaos”!  She says that music and chocolate are definitely a must while she’s creating!

Kathleen recently had two surgeries, and again found out the power of the hand-stamped card.  She had to put her Stampin’ Up business on hold, but her customers sent her cards while she recovered, which really cheered Kathleen up!
She doesn’t consider herself an expert in any one “field” of stamping, but does tend to like the clean and simple designs.  She feels that her customers appreciate this as well, as the cards are not hard to duplicate and do not take too much time to create.  Kathleen also loves to watercolor.  In times of lost inspiration, she turns to sketch challenges!  Her favorite class moment is when someone reluctantly comes to a class, declaring themselves “not creative”, and then realize how easy and fun it was to create something and ultimately book their own workshop!

We can’t wait to see what wonderful projects Kathleen has created to share with us during the Royal Blog Hop!

Kathy is from my "home" group in Franklin, MA so I'm especially happy to have her on the tour! I always think of Kathy when I hear about a swap because she was great about organizing swaps in our home group! She's a veteran of the tour now, and I can't wait to see what she'll do on this one!
