About Me

Welcome to Create with Nancy – The Natural Link to Creativity

I am Nancy Thompson, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator since November of 2000, located in Skaneateles, NY (the jewel of the Fingerlakes in CNY).  “Loving What I Do” totally says it all.  It has been fulfilling to help others create that masterpiece and inspire them to say “I made this”!  Mostly, I love sharing what I do and creating that special friendship!

It has been my dream to have a website for many years, so the year 2020 has made me step out of my comfort zone to bring to you Create with Nancy.  You can find inspiration from my website, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube.  I hope you will find it warm and inviting here as I share my Stampin’ Up! adventure with you and be your Natural Link to Creativity.

My journey would not be possible without the love and support of my family.  My daughter MaryPat, who hasn’t quite developed the love of stamping like her mother; her passion has been basket weaving, making anything ”beachy”, and a line of reusable products.  The two of us have enjoyed many Stampin’ Up! Incentive trips together over the years and are looking forward to our next adventure together.  I can’t leave out my truly biggest supporter, my husband Jac.  I love that he “gets” what a joy this is for me.  He is the rock that is always there to help set up, bring by that forgotten item for “cabin fever nights” at the church, and always helping create that vision I have to make a new catalog launch an amazing experience for my customers to enjoy all the surprises and delights.

With 20 years of stamping experience, I have a wealth of knowledge and will continue to learn so I can share and teach you how to use Stampin’ Up! product.  My very first stamp club is still going strong for over 17 years and are still being inspired to keep stamping!  I encourage anyone to gather a group of friends to form a monthly club with me so I can inspire creativity and stamp with you.  As much as I possibly can, I will share with you projects and video tutorials to help meet your paper crafting whether you are a beginner, casual, or an avid stamper to help meet your paper crafting needs.

My most recent goal for the year 2020 was to finally create a name for my team, “Inkin’ with Heart Stampers”.  I am blessed to have a team of stampers that Ink with their Heart and be their team leader.   As a community of stampers, we enjoy fellowship together and the love of stamping at monthly meetings, as well as Share & Connect nights throughout the month.  You can be a part of the Stampin’ Up! family and be a member of the “Inkin’ with Heart Stampers” by purchasing the Stampin’ Up! Starter Kit for $99.  Join today and become a member of our community.
