Lynn Austin McAuley
My name is Lynn Austin McAuley, and I am a native Texan raised with card-making in my blood. You see, my 90-year-old parents have been making their own Christmas cards since they married in 1950. As far back as I can remember our kitchen table was covered with cards and card parts for most of November.
I did not get deeply involved in card-making myself until my sister became a Stampin’ Up demonstrator in about 2000. When I retired from elementary school teaching in 2003, I really had time to devote myself to card crafting.
In 2008 I happened across Maria and her amazing stamps. As the old cliché goes, the rest is history.
My personal style generally involves just paper and ink. Therefore my two favorite types of cards are clean and simple designs or scene building designs. I think my love for layered stamping has caused me to dislike coloring with markers or pencils. Layered stamping is so much faster and easier.
My other interests include church and charity work, reading, talk radio or books on CD while traveling, and cooking for one. You can find my stamping creations at Lynn Austin McAuley on Facebook, allee’s on SplitcoastStampers, and on my blog Confessions of a Left-Brained Stamper.
Hi, I’m Nancy and I started scrapbooking back in 2002. I have always loved all things “stationary” related since I was a kid and collected many fountain pens, markers, and such paper supplies. In 2012 I was introduced to rubber stamping through Stampin Up and my official start to card making. I have found that card making is instant gratification for my creative outlet. I started a YouTube channel 3 years ago as a way to communicate and teach my stepdaughter what I was doing since she lived an hour away. My YouTube channel has grown into a supportive community of average crafters using supplies and stamps from many manufacturers. I focus on using what you already have and all levels of creating for handmade fun. My daughter, Lia, is six and will often show how fun and easy stamping can be. You can find my me at Nancy Stamps on YouTube, and at NancyStamps15 on Facebook & Instagram.
