1/12/11 31 Day Challenge Featured Artist...Angie Kennedy Juda (ChicnScratch)

Welcome to Day 12 of my 31 day pay it forward's featured artist is...Angie Kennedy Juda.

I love all kinds of art. From stamping projects, to sewn items, from steampunk to sweet. There is room in my studio for many kinds of art. Today I would like to tell you about Angie Kennedy Juda, and how she inspired me.

Angie is a very successful Stampin Up! demonstrator. I found her as one of the very first people I ever subscribed to on YouTube. Her YouTube name is.. Chicnscratch. At the time I was toying with becoming a demo myself, but work commitments prohibited me at the time. I later did sign up, and I am still a "hobby" demo today. When I first started watching Angie, she simplified things for me. She showed me wonderful stamps and techniques, and boxes...Angie is all about the boxes. She showed me that with a little ingenuity, I too could create some of the sweet projects she shows.

One of the first videos I keyed in on, was "How to use a Fiskers Trimmer". It sounds awful, but I had trouble reading a ruler down to 16th's for a long time. Angie went over the small measurements on the trimmer, and assured me I was doing it properly. In later years I learned I was not the only one who had this problem when I started doing classes myself.

She showed me so many easy ways to prepare for a class, teach a project, and use my supplies. Her influence and videos really moved me forward in stamping. Whenever I need a little box, or vintagey cute card, I look up Angie's blog.

Angie has also developed herself. Now a demonstrator in high status for Nine! she teaches classes on Ustream, and still continues to share her projects via YouTube. She is an excellent teacher, and I am really grateful to her for all she has put out into the world.

You can find Angie on youTube here:

If you are interested in purchasing Stampin Up! product, you may do so through my online store:

Here is the Fisker's trimmer video from Angie:

Angie has also jumped into quilting using her big shot to cut fabric. So be sure to check out those videos as well.

I have been trying to come up with something that Angie would like. Being such a senior demo, makes it hard for me to come up with a project. I do have some of the current Love Letters DSP that I think she likes a lot...hmmmm.

I will insert a video of what I come up with later.

Go check her out, she is a wonderful, gracious, sharing and talented lady.

Thanks you so much Angie! You gave me the confidence to become a Stampin Up! demo, and I have loved the last three years so much.
