Introducing Marisol Gutierrez

Marisol became interested in stamping when she was looking for invitations for her daughter’s baptism.  She couldn’t  find anything that she liked, so she started searching the web for ideas.  Stampin’ Up! came up in her search and she ordered some products.  She was immediately hooked and signed on as an Independent demonstrator approximately 3 years later.  She’s holding her first workshop in October of this year!  She didn’t ever want to appear pushy so she never outright asked for bookings, but at a kindergarten gathering this fall, she mentioned Stampin’ Up! to one of the other mothers and that mother  booked a workshop!

Presently, Marisol’s stamping area is in her bedroom.  She’s working to clean out the basement so she will have her own space to stamp and create.  She laughingly tells us that she used to have her own space until the birth of her son, Joaquin, but with the option of him either sleeping in her crafting space or sleeping in the hall, she felt that it wasn’t fair to for him to sleep in the hall!  Marisol usually crafts to Freestyle or Merengue-style music and says that she does her best work with this in the background.

Marisol finds that she is inspired by her children and current trends.  She says that she doesn’t have a favorite Stampin’ Up! product but she loves to use brads on many of her projects.  Just recently, Marisol created 500 Triangle Boxes for an event, and also was a bit overworked from doing her sister’s wedding invitations.  She tells us that she always gets her mojo back sooner or later though, because she loves to create with her hands! 

Check out Marisol’s castle on the Royal Blog Tour coming soon, and see what she’s been busy creating for us!
