HEIDI WEAVER (Coordinator)
I live in Blackfalds, Alberta, a transplant from British Columbia where I grew up. As well as stamping, I have been enjoying sketching and 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 and outings.

I’m the mother of three handsome sons and grandmother to nine beautiful grandchildren I discovered card making when a friend dragged me, under protest, to a Stampin’ Up! party. It was love at first card for me. While I've enjoyed many crafts over the years, none has caught my attention like papercrafting. When I’m not in my studio, I enjoy reading, writing, sewing, watching movies and spending time with my family and friends.
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 paper-crafting relaxing and enjoy stamping with friends.
I’ve done many crafts through out my life: knitting, crochet, needlepoint and cross stitch. One thing I’ve always wished was that I was an artist and could draw and paint. Then I discovered stamping and Stampin’ Up and I was hooked! Since I was a kid I’ve loved playing with paper (paper dolls anyone?) and at my first newspaper job when I learned how to design ads and whole pages of the paper, it was all done then by ‘cut & paste’ – yes, I’m dating myself – I loved it. Other things I enjoy include reading, dogs and cats (well, all animals), and photography.
I've been married to my childhood sweetheart for 48 years, a wonderful man who’s always supported me in my hobbies and crafts and encourages me to attend events and participate in what my heart desires. He’s a total enabler! As a result I’ve spent countless hours learning to knit, crochet, macramé, and I took particular delight in mastering needlework. It’s funny, though I acquired a love of paper, type and ink at a very young age, helping my dad who was a printer set type for his old hand press, it wasn’t until 2006 that I discovered my love and passion for paper crafting and stamping. While attending my first Stampin’ Up!® event and making a card, I was instantly captivated, and actually signed up to be a demonstrator that night. Since then my love for stamping and paper crafting as a whole has continued to grow and blossom into so much more than I originally anticipated. I love teaching stamping techniques, maintaining a stamping blog and participating in paper crafting challenges and would encourage anyone who is looking for a fulfilling craft to try it out.
I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter.
Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design.
Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums.
Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
