Stampin' Up!

Every Friday I try to take the opportunity to introduce you to the wonderful creations of a different Stampin’ Up! demonstrator as part of my Stampin’ Up! Artist of the Week feature.  This week I’d like to introduce you to Tara Travis.

Tara says about herself: "My family lives in Saco, Maine for the last 4 years, originally from Boston. I have two beautiful daughters, Aislinn is 7 and McKenna is 3. My wonderful husband Joe also shares his sons with me – David is 20 and Kevin is 19. Outside of stamping I am a special education teacher, part time in Kennebunk, Maine.

I have been stamping for 5 1/2 years, and been a Stampin Up Demonstrator for 5 1/4 years! Once I started I was hooked and never imagined I would be doing this as long as I have. My team consists of 10 first level demonstrators and 2 second level demonstrators. My two closest friends are my upline Liz and downline Susan, truly the way SU talks about it being about relationships!!

I have been blessed to apply the skills I have learned from Stampin Up to help others in my community. Last summer, Maine Medical Center welcomed me into the Barbara Bush Children’s Hosptial to help families by teaching stamping and scrappin’ on the unit. This spring my close friend’s daughter was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, which was devastating to all of us. I organized a crop – Hugs for Hayely, and we raised over $3000 to help the family."

The card above was created and photographed by Tara.  Be sure to take some time to check out other great projects she has on her blog: A Stamping Good Time.
