My name is Rochelle Laird-Smith and I love SIPping (Stamps, Inks and Paper)!

I live in the small coastal village of Blind Bight which is on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria with my partner Adrian and daughter, Cassidy. We are a family of musicians - me being the least of the musicians although I do play the piano and love to sing! Adrian is a music teacher and Cassidy is in her final year of school planning to be a teacher. 

Born in Sri Lanka to a middle-class family, I was always interested in pursuing art but this was not an affordable activity. So when I migrated to Australia as a teenager with my family, the world of crafting opened up to me. I was amazed at  what one could  create with so many supplies readily available.  My first introduction to papercrafting was the art of Paper Tole. I completed several projects over many years and this gave me some keen fussy cutting skills which has come in handy for cardmaking. 

One day I saw an advertisement for Stampin' Up! in a magaine and set out to discover what this company was. . Of course I was wary. I'd never heard of them and you couldn't find them in a shop - something must be dodgy! What first caught my eye was the coordinating stamps and punches and I was quite taken with the idea of having a product that cut out an image perfectly (imagine all the time I'd save!). I had my eye on the Pennant Punch and stamp set - that was just the beginning!!!

In 2015 I began my journey with Stampin' Up.   I bought a couple of products and as I looked through the catalogue, realized there were too many items that were on my Wish List. Buying a Starter Kit was the best decision I've made on this journey as it gave me so much value for money. After that I kept getting a discount on ALL my purchases - bonus!! 

Stampin' Up! provided me the opportunity to create artful projects without being an artist. Stamps provide beautiful images to build on to create my own little masterpiece - whether it be a card, scrapbook page or home decor piece.  Sometimes it's simple and other times it's elaborate but there's always SIP involved. 

Stampin' Up! started off as a hobby and quickly became something I wanted to do more with and share with others through classes. So while I do have a regular job, this is my job/passion. It offers me flexibility and the opportunity to make wonderful friends.  Sharing this craft with others has been wonderful. I have been blessed with the members of my Gifted Stars team who love their craft and care for each  other. Each time someone joins our community, we are able to share more inspiration, creativity and most importantly friendship.

I hope to meet you some day along this fun journey.
