All About the Wacky Watercooler Blog Hoppers

There are varying numbers of us each month.  Some months work out well to participate in the Blog Hop and some months Life is just so busy that doing justice to a blog post just isn't in the stars.  For this reason the photos and bios below are of all the people who have participated and probably will again.  It seems only fair to include everyone.  This also gives you a chance to get to know the people behind the fantastic projects that you see from month to month.

The Wacky Watercooler Blog Hoppers
We are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who virtually come together to bring you some creative inspiration using Stampin' Up! products. You can click the photos below to get to our own personal blogs.

In Alphabetical Order:


I've been a demonstrator from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada since January 2010.  Stampin' Up! products have helped me reach creative potential I didn't know I had. Being creative has also been a great healing tool for me after two tragedies and I have met some wonderful people as a result of being involved with the company. I offer all my events in both English and American Sign Language. I look forward to creating with you!! Outside the craft studio, I love to spend time with my dog, friends and family when I am not working full time at a Day Program for Special Needs Adults.

 I live in a small town in the northern tip of Virginia.  I’ve been married to my husband, Mike, for over 30 years, and we have two wonderful sons and beautiful daughters-in-law.  Among others things, I help Mike with his real estate brokerage, accompany music students on the piano at our local university, and hold monthly stamping clubs, classes, and workshops.  I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for over 10 years, and have loved every minute.  I had no idea what “rubber stamping” was when I went to my first workshop, but my friend who invited me said it would be fun.  She was right.


Shortly after my move to Oregon 8 years ago I got interested in rubber stamping. In 2006, I joined a local stamping group and started to learn all I could about this wonderful craft. I became a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator in 2007. I’m a 50 something widowed artist creating and living in the rural areas of Southern Oregon. I am also a spinner and weaver among other fiber arts and other crafting genres. I also like to cook, collect folk art, dabble with computers and way too many other things. Your basic baby boomer still in search of herself and wondering what she’ll be when she grows up.

I was introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2006 by a friend and have been hooked ever since.​It was the first time ​in my life I could actually be creative and it was easy to do​! I became a demonstrator in 2008 and have loved every minute of it. Presently I live in Northern New York with my husband, Rob and my dog, Emma.  We have three wonderful boys (men) and one daughter-in-law who I am extremely proud of.  I love Stampin' Up! now as much as I did that first day.


I'm a wife, mother of three, mother-in-law (x3) and grammie to 3 adorable grandsons.  In real life, I'm an RN manager, but my fun job begins when I get home and into my crafting studio.  I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 8 years, and love sharing paper crafts with others.

I'm Stefanie. I've been a demonstrator for almost two years now, and love my monthly clubs and events. I also work as a paramedic responding to 911 calls. In my spare time, I like to go camping and hiking.


My studio is in my Calgary home which I share with my husband, daughter, son and a very excitable cat.  I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2011.  My first introduction to Stampin' Up! occurred several years ago.  It was a little intimidating as I didn't even know how to cut cardstock let alone stamp a solid image. Obviously I persevered. Creating within my "stampwithbev" identity fills me with joy and sharing that joy gives me purpose. My hope is you will be inspired by what you see to create for yourself.  May you be uplifted to share what you create with those in your corner of the world.

I’m the mother of three handsome sons and nine beautiful grandchildren! I discovered card making when a friend dragged me to a Stampin’ Up! party. It was love at first card for me. In the nearly four years that I’ve enjoyed crafting, I’ve learned much and continue to perfect my craft. When I’m not in my studio, I enjoy reading, writing, sewing, watching movies and spending time with my family. I am also a Design Team Member for Sunday Christmas Card Challenges.


I live in Salem, Utah. I have been married to my husband Mike for 31 years and have 3 daughters and 2 sons as well as 2 granddaughters.  I have been scrapbooking for 29 years and making cards for 10. I first started stamping with Stampin’ Up! in 2003 and became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in early 2007.  I hold weekly classes and monthly clubs in my home.  I find papercrafting relaxing and enjoy stamping with friends.

I have been a Stampin' Up! demo since 2001. I love the way crafting causes the artist to "lose time" during the creative process, reducing stress.  The friendships that I've formed through paper crafting bring great joy to my life!

I live Blackfalds, Alberta, a transplant from British Columbia where I grew up.  A relative newcomer to Stampin' Up! (November, 2011), I have been enjoying crafts for most of my life.  I am deeply interested in photography, family, helping animal shelters, and helping the underprivileged.  I keep busy catering to my two rescued cats, Mei Li and Khali Kho, as well as enjoying activities with my two awesome grandsons.  My daughter and family live in Blackfalds as well, making it easy to have frequent family get-togethers.
