Introducing Lucia Kaiser

It’s now time to meet the Royal Blog Tour’s fearless leader, Lucia Kaiser.  Lucia was an avid stamp lover who found Stampin’ Up! through a demonstrator’s booth at a stamp expo.  She signed up under Helene Murdock, who later quit Stampin’ Up! for health reasons—but now Helene is back and has rejoined under Lucia!
Lucia has the most fun holding classes for children, despite having to hold some of the mothers back from placing stamps on the kids’ projects, where their children don’t want them!  Fortunately, Lucia keeps extra materials on hand, so “helpful” mommies can stamp wherever and however they like on their own project.

The embossing folders for the Big Shot are among Lucia’s favorite Stampin’ Up! products.  Lucia especially enjoys embossing card stock, then punching out embossed pieces with the ornament punch, to create paper roses.  Lucia is also partial to My Digital Studio, because it allows her to create digital designs when her tactile materials are not handy or available.
Lucia feels her strengths lie on the business side of her Stampin’ Up! demonstratorship.  She’s really good at encouraging others and giving feedback on their work.  She is extremely grateful for everything she has learned from other demonstrators, and from the privilege of constructing and heading the Royal Blog Tour.
One stamping secret Lucia leaves us with, is to close up product and put it away as you use it.  Speaking from unfortunate experience, Lucia says this practice will keep your work area neat and help avoid spills that can ruin your project, or your materials.  I wholeheartedly agree—glitter is pretty, but not when it’s caked onto my glue pen!
