About Me

I love paper crafting and memory keeping, and I especially enjoy sharing my creative passion with friends and family.  I started using Stampin’ Up! products in 2002 and fell in love with the ability to make customized, hand crafted cards.  That soon blossomed into creating scrapbook pages for my growing family.  With all the beautiful and trendy products offered by Stampin’ Up!, I find that I’m more inspired than ever.  I became a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator in 2013, and turned my passion into a business I love.

Blog Picture-001Growing up in California, I’ve always loved the beach, water, and swimming.  I was a competitive swimmer in high school and college, and still swim laps for exercise and fun.  Combine that with the fact that I’ve been collecting rubber stamps for so many years that I literally feel like I’m “swimming in stamps.”  So, that’s how I came up with the name of my blog.

I have a wonderful husband, and both a son and daughter in college, who inspire me every day.  I’m a C.P.A. who works as a controller for a local insurance agency.  In addition to swimming, I love all kinds of sports and try to do some sort of exercise five days a week, including aerobics, mountain biking, kick boxing, water skiing, and if I’m lucky enough to be in the mountains, cross-country or alpine skiing.  I also love sewing and dabbling in cake decorating.

    Hi Tami – I really love all that you do!! You have some amazing cards. I was also wondering if you are going to be making and posting calendars for 2018 like you have done in the past? I always enjoy seeing how you create them as well?? barbhann@sbcglobal.net

      Hi Barb. I debated about sharing the calendars this year. Several people I gave them to made remarks that they had seen my posts all year and it took away some of the surprise and fun of gift giving. So instead this year I plan to make them but post all at once at the end of the year after I’ve given them away. That’s probably not the answer you wanted. Sorry.

    I follow you all the time and i have a question for you. If you take your calendar s or scrapbooks to be printed elsewhere, what & how to you do it and where is a good place to take it?? Any guidance would greatly be appreciated. I used MDS and now MMS but i already had a scrapbook done and I’m afraid if i convert it over to MMS it might mess some things up? What do you think? Thank you.

      Hi Barb, Thanks so much for the comment. Honestly, I haven’t printed anything yet. But, I have a couple ideas of what to do, and I know a lot of people who have printed MDS pages since SU! stopped supporting it. I’ve heard that Costco is good for 8 x 10 prints or books. Although the printing can vary from store to store. I’ve also heard that Persnickety Prints and Shutterfly is good online. And, Office Depot or Staples are both suppose to be good. There is a Facebook page called My Digital Studio Challenge that you should join. I learn lots of great things there. Another option would be to convert the whole MDS page to a JPEG and then copy the JPEG into a page on MMS and have them print the page. Then you wouldn’t have to worry about anything moving around. Hope that helps:)
