About me

Who's Frenchie? 
 Well let me tell you a little about myself.  

I'm French Canadian (with a little accent) born and raise on a potato farm in New Brunswick Canada. Got married and move in the USA over 25 years ago. My husband Brett and I have a daughter Nika and a son Mick and not to forget our furry one Shadow. 

Just moved to Lake Livingston Texas in fall 2015 but been around east to west to north to south, we been in Cheyenne WY for over 13 years but we started our married life in Minot ND then Pensacola FL, Murrieta CA and current Lake Livingston TX. Yes we been moving around that is what military life will do to us. Brett is out of the service but is current job keep us moving so who knows where will be next. Life is a adventure.

What do I love to do other then paper crafting cause you know I love paper crafting and sure love sharing that part of my life with you all here on my blog. Well when I'm not in the craft room I love to take shadow for long walk in the country, I use to LOVED watching/coaching soccer when the kids was still at home (sad they're both graduated. Both to college.  Camping/outdoor, boating, traveling, visit my family in Canada, taking picture of the sunrise yes I'm a morning person, I sure love my cup of coffee in the am and watching the beautiful sunrise but the sunset is pretty to. Now I started feeding bird this is my new addiction that I started since we moved to TX, sure love to watch the birds from my craft window. 

So in short I'm a child of God, a wife, a mom, sister (4 girls in my family no brother but many brother in law), love the outdoor and YES a Stampin'Up! demo of 13 plus years and still counting. That is me in a nut shell.

Have a great day my friends.  

My favorite saying is "Enjoy today cause tomorrow is not a promise" 


  1. Hi Franchie, I love your Youtube channel and blog. I need to ask you somethin. Do you think you can publish a template for the one sheet purse? I don't have the diagonal plate and tried it many times and failed to make it. i live in Brazil, not easy to find materials here. If you had a template so that i could score with my ruler, that would be great. Thanks!!

  4. Hi Frenchie, I heard you speak at the Shreveport OnStage and you were awesome. That was my first OnStage event and it was like Christmas in April. I really enjoyed your energy and enthusiasm. The presentation you gave inspired me to purchase the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, but was really excited yo receive it as a prize. I will be purchasing the thinlets in May. Thank you again for your inspiration.

  7. Want to share a tip with you.
    I often get sheets of thin poly packing material when I purchase something online. I wanted to find a way to recycle it in my card making crafts and save a little money as well. I tried using my metal dies to cut out mirror images of my embellishments with this material and found that it works wonderfully with dies that are extremely detailed. I then can use Tombo or Fast Fuse to attach the foam die cut to the paper image and then to the card. In many instances it stabilizes the image much better than glue dots or tacky foam squares and works especially well when putting a framing trim around a card. You just use two square dies, , oval or round dies of different sizes to create a frame piece of paper and a frame piece of the thin foam sheet and Viola! Of course this also works with the sheets of craft foam but they are stiffer and why spend more money when you can recycle instead.
