About Me

Houston, Texas
Hello, I’m Crystal, and I’m a pretty quiet person who doesn’t have a lot to say. I love making all kinds of crafts. I started Stampin’ Up around 2005. There are so many things you can do with stamps. I love making cards & other gifts for everyone that I can. I hope you like what you see on my blog. Have a wonderful day.
