About Me

Kristine McNickle
Hamilton, Waikato

I am a stay-at-home mum with three kids and a wonderfully supportive husband.  I love craft, but stamping and card making is my passion.  I also enjoy extending card-making and stamping techniques to create 3-D projects and gifts. 

I was introduced to Stampin' Up! a over ten years ago and I quickly fell in love with their high-quality, coordinating products and, soon after, became an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  I now hold regular workshops in my home focusing on the fabulous papercraft products Stampin' Up! has to offer. 

I enjoy sharing what I know with others and inspiring their stamping creativity.
