My name is Andrea Walford and I am a mixed media artist, writer, avid card maker & Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, as well as an online business coach for creatives.
I have spent the last 12 years teaching thousands of card makers and aspiring mixed media artists how to discover and develop their own creativity, as well as how to tap into that creativity to grow and develop a creative business and life.
My first introduction into the world of arts and crafts was with Stampin’ Up!, as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator (from 2006 – 2011). During my time with Stampin’ Up! I achieved Founder’s Circle as one of the top 15 Demonstrators in Canada and earned a number of the company incentive trips.
It was during my time as a demonstrator that I began teaching Stampin’ Up!-loving customers around the world through my tutorials and online classes. This eventually evolved into a coaching business where I also helped other Stampin’ Up! demonstrators build successful businesses of their own.
By the time I left Stampin’ Up! in 2011, I had had the privilege of teaching and inspiring thousands of crafters and demonstrators around the world.
I left in order to expand into other areas: general paper crafting, mixed media art, writing and coaching creative business owners.
From then until the end of 2015 I built an online video based membership site called Paper Crafter’s Library (PCL), which became the largest, most comprehensive library of online video tutorials in the world.
At the end of 2015 I shut down PCL and spent the next year offline for health and family reasons.
In January 2017, I re-entered the online world – refreshed, rejuvenated and re-inspired. Ready to re-focus on my mixed media art, writing and coaching….and…..as I had never lost my love of Stampin’ Up! and Stampin’ Up! products, I decided to add Stampin’ Up! back into my professional and creative portfolio once more, and re-joined the company as a demonstrator.
I share my life with my husband Todd, 5 children (8, 10, 14, 16 and 18), my 96 year old Grandpa, and our dog Ginger. When I’m not working, I enjoy date nights with my husband, family movie nights at home with our kids, reading, and travelling. I also have an avid interest in fitness – specifically weight training, biking and Muay Thai (Kickboxing) – and have never lost the passion for fitness healthy eating and living clean that I developed when I was a Registered Dietitian.
I look forward to serving you!
