Ruth Hickey and Kristine McNickle are teaching a card class on Sunday afternoon

We are a team of Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from the Waikato and Wellington areas. We bring creative inspiration using stamps, ink, and paper, to all crafters in New Zealand, no matter your ability. We look forward to meeting you at SENZ South!

Ruth Hickey (Cambridge)
Hi, I’m Ruth and I’ve been in love with all things paper and ink since I was a girl. I discovered that Stampin’ Up!® was in New Zealand when I was planning and making my wedding invitations. The quality of the products was my first attraction. I’ve been an Independent Stampin' Up!® Demonstrator for 5 years originally selling finished items at markets. I decided to build a home based business around Stampin’ Up! 4-1/2 years ago. I teach classes and at one day events plus still attend markets and craft shows. My passion is 3-D projects, different folds and techniques.

Kristine McNickle (Hamilton)
Hi, I'm Kristine and I've been stamping and creating cards for more than 20 years, but I became more obsessed when Stampin' Up!® bought their beautiful, coordinating products to New Zealand. It was not long after that I took the plunge and my hobby became my profession, and now I've been creating and teaching for 11 years. Texture is my thing, and you will always find embossing, ribbon, twine, sequins, or rhinestones on my projects!
