My name is Britney Vanderlaan. I’m an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin’ Up, an Independent Designer for Origami Owl and a drum tech. I love being around family and friends. I believe laughter is the best medicine and makes the world a better place. I am from Florida but now call North Carolina my home. I love the change of season for the most part, besides the winter cold!
I really took up card making when my family was going through a stressful time when my grandma’s life was slowly ending, my creative output was making cards. My mom had card supplies she was using and I took them over haha Then she said she hated me because I could throw a card together in no time. I like making cards knowing they will put smiles on the faces of people that receive them.
After my grandma past away my mom and I talked about how much I love making cards and so I decided to become a Stampin’ Up demonstrator. I enjoy teaching others and showing that everyone can be creative in some way. I believe we should all have a creative outlet.
