More About Me

I have been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator since 2001 and love teaching others the art of rubber stamping and paper crafting. I hold classes and workshops in my home and hope to offer them online very soon! I have a very supportive husband, two grown boys, two dogs and two cats.

I also enjoy volunteering with other demonstrators at our local Ronald McDonald House.

Paper Pumpkins for fall decorating!

It’s so simple to create these Paper Pumpkins – perfect for fall decorating!   I used the “Color Me Autumn” Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up!

I used some of the green paper...

This was my first banner, ever, and it was really easy using the “Build a Banner Simply Created Kit” and the “Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit.”  I also made one for Halloween which can be seen at http://www.keenankreations.com/2013/08/fun-halloween-banner.html.  The patterns and letters are created with a stencil and our inks in a spritzer.  Everything is ready to go and you only need a...
