About Me

Hi Crafty Friends!

I’m Kurstan. I live in the SF Bay Area of California with my husband, 5 year old son, 2 cats and crazy Great Dane puppy. When I’m not crafting, I’m spending time with them playing or visiting someplace fun like Disneyland, or I’m working at my day job with UCSF. I actually wish I had more time to craft, but who doesn’t, am I right?!

My crafty itch can be linked all the way back to my grade school days. I still remember loving pens, markers, stickers and stationary much more than barbies and princesses. I dabbled in scrapbooking a bit until I found stamping. I’ve ventured in and out of scrapbooking since but stamping seems to have found a permanent place in my heart. I also love making fun, personalized gift packaging.

This is my third time being a Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator. I found these amazing products back in 2000 when I met my friend Crystal. She still stamps with me. Over the years I signed up and then life got in the way and I went inactive – a time or two. Well, two times. This time, though, I feel like it’s finally meant to be. I have found some great friends and an escape from the daily stress of life. 

If you’re interested in becoming a Stampin’ UP! Demonstrator, I’d love to have you on my team. Whether you’re excited about the discount for yourself or looking to build a business, I can help! When you join my team, you not only get me and our amazing group of #winenotcrafters as a never-ending resource, you also get to be a part of the Luv2Stamp team!

Most of my projects get posted on Instagram

If you live in the Bay Area, I’d love to meet new crafty friends. If you don’t, say hi anyway! I look for inspiration everywhere and hope to offer some up, as well.
