My name is Justin Krieger and I’m techie that does computer consulting. I live in Long Island, NY and I have a wonderful daughter Taylor and Mini Schnauzer Winston. I have always done some kind of paper crafting ever since I was little when I made entire car dashboards out of oaktag. I discovered my love of card making in January of 2010 while watching a show on PBS. I saw them make a waterfall card and I thought I can do that so I went out and got some supplies and made one. My friend introduced me to Stampin’ Up! in August of that year and I became an Independent Demonstrator in September. I am completely hooked and take some time to make something every day. It relaxes me and is my wind down at the end of the day!
Very cool card Justin! All mine are flat! LOL I’ll have to give 3D a spin. Oh, and I’m with you with all the Apple stuff too!
LOL! I love 3D! My Simply Scored is my best friend! 😉
Just stumbled in your blog Justin – love your cards, especially the coffee one. I too love Starbucks and all things Apple!
Have a great day, keep sharing your amazing creations 🙂
Thank you so much! I am an Apple fanatic and addicted to Starbucks! Have an awesome day and thanks for stopping by!
Hello Justin, I just found your blog thru Stampinconnection. Wow I love your cards – the simplicity of them!! That is rare to have a male demonstrator. 🙂 I am from Vancouver, Canada….I joined Stampin Up! just for hobby. Thank you for sharing your blog.
I’m so glad that you like my cards! Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I am a rare breed, but I love doing it all. 🙂
You are welcome! No hard feeling, I am PC user…never tried with apple stuff! I have been thinking of buying IPad 2 from a friend to start from the scratch as a new beginner. Also I am Tim Horton iced cap and coffee fanatic!
You will love an iPad! I’m a big Starbucks fan myself! 🙂
I love your blog….I stumbled on it after I saw Sandy Mathis’s site on the blog tour! She made this cute box and credited it to you! So I had to click on the link she provided and then I saw all your cute creations.
Would you mind sharing the template for the box? I’d love to make a bunch for gifts! Oh, and I’ve bookmarked your blog, so I’ll be looking at it frequently! 🙂
Thank you so much Kathy! I’ll be happy to send you the instructions for the box when I get home later. So glad that you like my projects! 😉

Hi Justin, I found you through the Tic-Tac-Toe, Paper Players Page (WOW say that three times fast!) I too live in Long Island, NY (Massapequa) and was wondering what town you live in and if you hold any crafting nights, or workshops, etc? I am only making cards for 18 months. I have a small group (of SU friends, here but they have been SU for many, many years and it seems their time is very limited. Thanks a bunch.
I’m in Bethpage! I don’t have any classes but my up-line Sandy does. She is two over to the left in the gallery! She actually has a new catalog release event tonight. She is in Seaford. http://www.stampwithsandy.com 🙂
Thanks Justin, I contacted Sandy just now. Maybe we will meet one day. I want to know what is an “up-line”? Thanks a bunch.
