About Papercrafting With Amanda

Welcome! I am glad you have found this site. I am looking forward to sharing my love for papercrafting with you. I will share projects I have created, new products from Stampin’ Up, and anything else that makes sense to share. First a little bit about me.

I have been a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator since June 2015. I have been papercrafting most of my life, changing my medium occasionally. As a child I loved stickers! I would collect them, arrange them on papers, tell stories with them. I also enjoyed origami and dabbled with it on and off over the years. At some point I found rubber stamping and played with it to create cards, designs on paper, decorative items. In high school I discovered scrapbooking and started to explore the possibilities. Through college I did a little here and there. As a mom I had high hopes of creating scrapbook after scrapbook but just didn’t have the time as I was also a high school Spanish teacher and involved with my church. I wanted to craft but I needed it to be practical and easy to finish in a short time. And that it is why I returned to cardmaking and similar projects. I love being able to create something in less than an hour, especially when it is a special occasion and a card is needed. I love being able to create cards to send to my students, colleagues, friends, and family. No need to go to the store to pick out a card. I can customize the card for the recipient or choose from my stash as needed.

As I mentioned, my full time job has been as a Spanish teacher in a public high school. As a demonstrator, I enjoy putting together classes to socialize and share my love of papercrafting. I love showing how to put something together or explaining something new. While I would love to invite everyone to my dining room for an in-person class, I know that just isn’t possible. My hope is that through this site I am able to share my ideas and knowledge just as I would in an in-person class and ultimately share my love for papercrafting.
