Oh my!  I love cards (I have a huge plastic bin and a shelf dedicated to them)!  But, here’s what I don’t have – handmade cards.  And quite frankly, I’m shocked that I don’t.  I’m crafty – so why haven’t I made my own cards?

Well, I should really make that all change now that I met Brian.  Brian was manning his Stampin’ Up booth at a holiday event this past year when I met him.  Brian is the type of guy you want to get to know and you are excited to hear what he’s dishing out.  So, let me introduce you to Stampin’ Up and Brian!

Stampin Up with Brian - Dames 5

Everyone loves a handwritten note.  A handwritten note on a handmade card can’t be beat!  As a Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrator, I host workshops, technique classes and events centered around various papercrafting projects – greeting cards, tags, giftwrap, home decor and scrapbook pages.  I am at my best when my hands are inked up and when I’m snipping pieces of paper to create a beautiful project.  I am most excited when I can share that experience with someone else.  I started www.stampwithbrian.com in April 2012 as a communication vessel for my creative energies.  I infuse my blog posts with techniques, samples and lots and lots of humor.  Through my blog, I have met people all across the world who share in the joy of this wonderful hobby.  It’s been an amazing, wild ride for me, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

My papercrafting projects can be defined as Clean and Simple.  I might have multiple layers of cardstock or inked images, but you won’t likely find oversized bows or distressed images on my projects.  I can help you to create those items, but my personal aesthetic leans toward clean images and straight lines.

I sell high-quality papercrafting products – printed papers, card stocks, rubber stamps, inks, punches and accessories.  I also help others to create an experience with their friends.  While Stampin’ Up!’s business is based on a home party model (that’s a primary source of business for me), I also host classes and workshops in my home.  I’m so happy to help others create a fun experience for their own gathering – girl’s night out, a wedding party get together to make invitations or thank you notes, family gatherings that center around a fun craft.  I love to craft, and I love to entertain.

If any of this interests you, please contact Brain at [email protected].  I’d love to talk with you about how you can organize a fun get-together for your friends and family.
