Introducing Kim Innis

Kim Innis became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator about 12 years ago—on advice from her doctor!  Kim began stamping as a hobby, for relaxation and stress release, about a year after nearly dying from a bad bout of pneumonia.  She had previously done a lot of counted cross-stitch, but found stamping a lot easier and more fun, because of the almost instant gratification from completing a project in just a few minutes.

It should come as no surprise to learn that one of Kim’s favorite techniques is the One Sheet Wonder.  With this technique, she can create her own background paper in a jiffy, use a little on a current project, and save pieces to use later on other projects.  Another favorite for Kim is making 3D projects, like creating birdhouses from the mini milk carton die.  Her favorite Stampin’ Up! product is ribbon, and she rarely makes a project without it.

Kim loves blog hopping to get stamping inspiration…she finds projects to duplicate, and modifies them to give them her own unique style.  Whenever she is stressed, or loses her stamping mojo, Kim just checks out some blogs and gets busy stamping, and everything is right again in her world.  Kim encourages us all to stamp something every day…after all, it is just what the doctor ordered!
