My name is Louise Ryan, I’m married with two young boys, aged 12 and 9. I was first introduced to stamping and card making about 23 years ago when the only way to purchase stamps was through mail order on the East Coast. I started off with two small Christmas tag stamps, some silver embossing powder and used to use the toaster to emboss! Needless to say when they introduced those safety toasters where the bread had to be in the toaster, I moved on to a heat gun, and my collection of stamps is now somewhat larger!
When Stampin’ Up!® launched their products in Australia in 2006, I jumped at the chance to become a demonstrator, even though this is not something I would have imagined myself doing. The products, the colours and the professional approach to business made the opportunity to be part of Stampin’ Up!® just too good to refuse.
I love making cards and other projects and am having a ball doing something I love to do and making a little money along the way.
