\r\n Hi!  I'm Steph Ackerman, a crafter from New York. I have been married to Gary for 37 years and we have a 22 year old Criminal Justice college graduate. We also have a very photogenic 9 year old pup who is the subject of many of my scrapbook layouts/mixed media projects.

\r\n

\r\n Crafting has always been a big part of my life. I have been creating in some form since I was a child. Back then all we had was construction paper and rubber cement. I love seeing how this craft has evolved and how it has changed what we create and how we create. I love creating cards, mixed media projects, canvases and off the page projects using an assortment of products from pattern papers to stamps to inks to spritzers, dies and more. I don't start out with a plan in mind, I pull the products I want to use and see what happens. I love to play and experiment. I don't have a specific style as I let the products I am working with take me on that  journey with each creation.

\r\n

\r\n About 10 years ago I discovered that I love teaching. Since then I have been teaching classes several times a month at my local  store, in my home studio and local library. I teach my students to play with their supplies because only then can you truly see the full potential of your supplies. I challenge my students to use their tools and supplies in different ways. I also expose my students to new products and product lines as they  love to learn what's new in the crafting environment.

\r\n

\r\n The busier my working day is, the more time I allocate to crafting. After a crazy day at the office, I love to dive into my inks and stamps and play with no expectations. It's fun to see what happens when you have no expectations.

\r\n

\r\n I love seeing my work In print and constantly submit my work for publication. I have had as many as 30 cards in one print magazine and have seen my work showcased at CHA where I am a CHA Designer Member.
