I officially met Sue when I was on a summer class tour 3 or 4 years ago - I was at the Queen's Ink in Maryland, and she had driven down with a group of fellow papercrafters for class. I remember how fun and engaging she was when I met her! I saw her again the next year I was on tour, and she shared so many fantastic ideas after class that I knew she should be on the Memory Box Design Team!
She's sharing with us today a stationery set - using the Orchid Branch Print stamp G1718 stamp and paper piecing out the blossoms.
Here's a little background on Sue:
My name is Sue Trembeth but I go by Sue T. I have been stamping for about 14 years. I started out with the ‘major craft store” stamping and one day came across a small stamp store 5 minutes from my house. The store was closed when I got there and I had my face pushed up against the glass and was amazed at all the stamps I saw sitting on the shelves. I was back at Create an Impression in Ardmore PA the next morning waiting for them to open. Heather Schwartz, the owner, saw a raw stamper in front of her and nurtured and encouraged everything I wanted to try. Before I knew it, I was not only working at Create an Impression, but teaching and sharing my obsession with others. I remember when Heather came in with a catalog for a small new company that was featuring the coolest little birds. We were all so tired of artsy brown and ochre cards that these cute images and simple and whimsical cards were a breath of fresh air, long needed. That company would be yours, Dave. Soon, Heather was carrying Memory Box stamps and paper. I taught at Create an Impression at least once a month for six years before they closed. When Heather sadly closed her doors, I found Rubber Buggy Art Stamps and Supplies in Lancaster, PA. I taught at Kris Hoffer’s store until she closed. I opened my own business teaching paper craft classes when I had no where else to teach. The Creative Studio is run by myself and a creative friend. A year or so ago I was told some exciting news about a new stamp store that opened in Tuckerton, NJ called One Little Spark. I was in the car and off to check it out. Pat and her husband Lee were very brave and opened a stamp store in October 2009 when the economy couldn’t have been worse. When I told Pat my story and showed her my work, she asked me to teach classes. Yeah! Another stamp store to teach in. So presently, I teach at One Little Spark. I am becoming handy with my digital camera and learning how to work all our Mac devices. I am Ranger certified and have been published a few times. Everyone says I have a distinct style of stamping but I don’t see it. I love to try anything and I am an ink hound. I will tell you, I am basically a card maker. I love making cards. When I was a kid my dream was to go to art school and then work for Hallmark. Once in a while I step outside my box for something 3D. I am married to my biggest critic George. He will lovingly tell me when “it isn’t your best work.” My muse in the studio is my sweet girl Pink the cat who I got when she wandered into Create an Impression all dirty and scrawny. Today she’s fat and sassy just like her mama! She sleeps and spends most of her day in our studio. She loves the smell of ink and rubber!
