WOW! What a thrill to be joining this wonderful DIRTY group of talents! Thank you, Lydia, for inviting me & for this special opportunity. I'm completely humbled. These next 6 months as a DD Girl will be challenging, but also rewarding because I love this great SCS community!
Hi! My name is America Kuhn; I am a US Army Veteran, a Military Wife & a SAHM to 4 amazing children. Our home is where the ARMY takes us around the globe. I'm the luckiest because we manage to make a little crafting corner for me wherever we get stationed. yay! When I'm not busy with my kids, schools, homework, sports & endless activities, I enjoy being creative. Card Making is my passion. It's a great therapeutic hobby that has connected me to many fabulous crafters along the way!
My paper crafting journey began in 2002 when I was introduced to scrapbooking by another military mom while stationed overseas in Germany. The idea of scrapbooks coming together to tell a story from start to finish was fascinating, and so, I was hooked. By that next year, and another military move, I discovered rubber stamps while shopping for scrapbooking products in Hawaii. It was right there and then that I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping & cards. (A heavy stamp collection started that continues to move with us to new duty stations.)
I came across SplitCoastStampers in 2008, while surfing the web & was instantly hooked. I joined as a FAN Club Member and watched in awe as other talented card makers uploaded. They inspired and helped me to develop some basic skills. Soon after I had gained enough courage to upload my first card! It was so much fun & rewarding to read all the surprising encouragement from our awesome SCS'ers, (and my DH who has always been my biggest fan). Soon after, I applied for small parts on Design Teams & have been lucky enough to get picked up here and there. Joining Teams as a Guest or a DT is the best way to meet crafters with the same passion while gaining amazing experiences. I'm forever grateful to SCS. Very excited to join the DD & can't wait to share my work as I give back to this amazing inspiring community. Thank you SCS!
