Jean's photo 003

Hi All,

My name is Jean Fitch.

Welcome to the on-line version of my Stamping Studio in the Rogue Valley.    I’ve been stamping for about 8 years and a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator for 7 of those years now.     I live in the rural spaces of the Rogue Valley in Southern Oregon and share my living space with two furfaces (of the cat variety) named Sandy and Wicket.  Those of you who subscribe to my demo or customer newsletter have heard the stories of their exploits.  They have since decided that their fame could use a wider stage so they’ve encouraged me to start this blog so they can have their chance at fame and fortune.  Along the way I’ll also be sharing my own and others creations, lots of links to amazing blogs, video’s, tutorials and anything else I can think of.   I hope you will enjoy the journey with me.

For those of you interested in the personal details:  I’m your basic Caucasian mongrel mix of nationalities, into my 50’s, a Catholic Christian and though a lover of tech and sci-fi, am also a spinner and weaver among other fiber arts and other crafting genres.  My home is filled with books, music, instruments, cat paraphernalia, crafting supplies (especially spinning wheels and looms) and of course the usual accoutrements of a confirmed pack rat who also likes to cook, collect folk art, dabble with computers and way too many other things.  Your basic baby boomer still in search of herself and wondering what she’ll be when she grows up.    So welcome to the new space and feel free to drop me a line.

I’m also known as jlfstudio on SCS and various other stamping forums with this avatar.

Credit Line:  In case you are wondering, the card image above is not one of mine.  When I first discovered stamping blogs and everything on-line to do with stamping I came across this image in a Cards on-line promotion from June of 2007 and was fascinated with it (probably the buttons :D) and it has since become my avatar on many blogs and stamping sites.  I had also just gotten a Vista computer with a very cool snipping tool and was wildly snipping everything I fell in love with.   Once started it’s hard to change so for now I’ll continue to use it but thought you should know it’s neither mine nor original with me.  If I ever find out who’s it is I’ll be happy to give credit where credit is due.    And yes it’s on my to do list for CASE’ing so that it will be a more legal version – I just have to find the right buttons!

Hugs and blessings to you all. – Jean

  1. Hi Jean!

    I love reading your comments at the SU Forum so have been watching for awhile now to see if you would begin a blog. I receive your newsletter, but am looking forward to also see some of your original projects online;-) Maybe one of these days I’ll be brave enough to start a blog too;-0

    So congratulations on taking this step. I look forward to following it regularly!


  2. You are doing a great job Jean. I know that you can make your computer do any thing that you want it to!
    Nice blog.

    Edited to add:
    Oh if only that were so…Thanks for the kind words Mary 😀 – Jean

  3. Congrats, Jean! Love your demo newsletters and just had to stop by to check out your new venture. It’s great!

    Happy Stampin’!

  4. Hi Jean,

    It is great to put a face with a name. I read and enjoy all the comments, tips, and suggestions you put out there to all of us in the SU forum. I enjoyed visiting your blog and only wished you were my neighbor.
    here in PA. Thanks for all the time you give to the forum.

  5. I’m so happy you started this. You have been a giant help to me and many others in their journey’s.
    Here’s to more to come!

  7. Hi Jean,
    Congratulations on your new blog! It’s addictive 😀
    Thanks for the promotion.

  8. Hi, Jean,

    I’m glad to see you posted a photo here. It makes this whole e-communication thing a bit more friendly. I hope you’re out of the shed and into the light! (ref. your SD post a day or two ago) Are you feeling better about the new IDA issues? I hope so. I have to tell you that I have enjoyed your posts on SD as well. It’s hard to believe that you haven’t been stamping longer than a few years! When I think about your posts on SD, it seems you are especially good at helping people. That’s quite a feat in today’s world. Kudos!


  9. Hey Jean!

    Wow, what a blog and lots of information / inspiration! I have to tell you thank you for the helpful links for my paper doll idea. I have my first prototype done and have to say that it is ADDITICTING!!! I can’t wait to show you and the girls! See you Saturday and God Bless!!!

  10. Just found your blog after reading posts on Stampin’ Connection. I love southern Oregon. My grandparents lived in Grants Pass so I spent a lot of time there in my youth. They have passed on so I don’t spend much time there now and I miss it.
    I can’t wait to check out your blog and see what all you have on it.
    Have a great day.

  11. happy New Year Jean!!!!! I hope this year brings you prosperity and good health! God bless, Bev

  12. Jean,
    Have been reading your posts on Stampin’ Connection and SplitCoast Stampers. You are my go to gal when I have a question,because you usually read my mind and have the answer there already!! For that you have my undying thanks. Cats and Catholics must go together because I fit the profile, with Fuzzy my cat.
    He loves the perforation designs on card making as he is always ready to make them when I’m working. Ruth

  13. Congratulations on your blog Jean. I am one of the lucky ones to have Jean here in the Rogue Valley. Jean is a regular contributor to our Stamp Camps and has been always an inspiration. Love you, girl.

  14. Have just signed up for newsletter and checking out your blog now. You are a powerful source of information. I always wait to see what you are going to say to a question. Thanks for being so informative to all of us. After convention this year, I am definitely going MDS and getting a blog set up. At 71, I am not too old yet.
