About The Bug

Welcome to my website/blog! 

My name is Denise and I love to create with paper and ink. I find joy in creating cards for family and friends, so I decided to join Stampin' UP! in 2015 after my husband had a stroke.

I choose Stampin' Up! because of their quality of product and how everything coordinates.  My genuine love for the products, allow me to showcase creations made from the stamps, ink, paper and accessories.

I am improving all the time in my business to help you create beautiful projects and memories. To help me grow as an artist, I play with other mediums. I am not just a paper crafter, I like to say I'm a jill of all crafts! I like taking Dollar Tree items and making decor for my home and the holidays.  I am learning to play with my cricut again (I went back after years with Silhouette).

My business has grown, and husband has improved, since making this decision.  

I love my Ladybug Team, we continue to grow all the time and have fun building our businesses.  We laugh, create and bond.

I was born in California, but raveled all around the US with my dad and brother, until the age of 11. I planted roots in the South. So yes I love my Southern Sweet Tea, just not too sweet. 

My husband and I have been married since 2014, and I am blessed that he supports my SU!, business while I work a full time job in Payroll Accounting. 

I am also a step-mother to 4 wonderful children, and have 4 beautiful grand-babies.  I love spending time with my family, my Lord, traveling, up cycle flea market finds, and just about anything British.  And showcasing  Stampin' Up! product through local classes and online. Come over and create with us! I have made lots of friends from around the world.

Thank for stopping by and I would love to hear from you.


  1. I know this is going to sound like a silly question, but what are clear corners etc used for with the Stamparatas?

    1. You can use them to adhere your cardstock when there is no corner.

  2. Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks! netflix member login
