About Blythe

You’ll find great craft ideas using both new and tried-and-true products, card inspiration for all occasions, dimensional projects (like gift boxes and decor), and easy-to-follow tutorials along with the latest color trends, exciting new stamp sets, and all of the promotions offered by Stampin’ Up!

Teaching others is part of my DNA. I’ve been a tutor since I was in the sixth grade, a substitute teacher after graduating college with a degree in Geography, a teacher’s aid while my kids were in elementary school, and, finally, a teacher of rubber stamp art once they were in college.  Today I teach classes in my home and throughout my community in California’s beautiful gold country.

Before becoming a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in 1996, I was an infrequent stamper with a hodgepodge collection of products. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Stampin’ Up!’s coordinated stamps, card stock and accessories – something truly unique in those days – that stamping suddenly became easy and convenient. I was immediately hooked. Twenty years later, it’s not only my favorite hobby but a nice business as well.

After retiring from jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003, my husband and I moved 150 miles east, to our cabin in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of northern California. It is here where I host stamping classes and events in my newly renovated studio, teach my monthly Stamping For Adults class at our charming Mi Wuk Village library, and continue to build my stamping business.

I’d love to hold a stamping class for you and your friends in your home or my studio in Mi Wuk Village, showing you all how to create your own hand-stamped treasures.  And I’d be most pleased if you’d call me your demonstrator and purchase your Stampin’ Up! products through me.  If you’re interested in crafting your own home-based business, please consider become a stampin up demonstrator.

Be sure to sign up for my monthly newsletter for the latest stamping news, tips, techniques, questions/answers and class schedule.

Other than stamping I love to knit, camp, golf and volunteer in my community.

Beyond this blog you can find me sharing ideas and inspiration on Facebook and Pinterest.
