Hello! Welcome to Social Stampers! My name is Vanessa Shepherd, and I am a crafter, photographer, designer and marketer. I love to create things, and have been crafting, designing, and photographing the world around me for my whole life. The best part about being creative is sharing in the process with others, and making someone else’s day extra special by giving them a heartfelt creation.
Over the years I have loved working with clients to create something that fit their needs, whether it was a set of cards, something for an event, a piece of furniture, or a piece of art for their home. I have also had the opportunity to teach others how to make something they were interested in, whether it was a loom knit scarf, a card, or favor boxes for their event, and I loved that experience so much I decided to share the process a little broader. Out of that idea, came the idea for a blog and the idea eventually grew to include a craft group that meets regularly to make something new. I affectionately like to call people who enjoy crafting and sharing in the process with others social stampers, and hope I can help inspire you to become a social stamper too!
I use my crafting talents to preserve memories, customize home décor, create beautiful gifts and make extra special touches for events of all types and sizes. As a Stampin’Up! demonstrator I have been able to access really neat stamps, embellishments and paper that have helped take my creations to the next level. Everyone in my craft group loves discovering new products with me, and we’ve come up with some pretty neat ideas as a result of sharing in the creative process together. I also love social media, especially Pinterest and blogging, and am eager to share my finds and creations with you. Come visit and follow me!
