about Leonie


Hi, I am Leonie and live in Campbelltown, NSW Australia, which is located in Sydney’s South West.

I am married with 2 lovely daughters (15 and 13 ) We also have two special angels in Heaven. Daniel (2005) was born still at 35 weeks due to Trisomy 18 and Hannah (2001) miscarried at 18 weeks.

Before children I worked in banking with various roles from typist, teller to lending officer and looking back I don’t know how I did it or why we put off having children for so long!! I just love being a mum and yes it can be stressful but it definitely has its rewards!

I was introduced to stamping some 15 years ago and swore I’d never be a scrapbooker but alas I am now a stamper who scraps … or is that a scrapper who stamps?? I love to make cards and gifts for friends and family and they too seem to appreciate the effort you have gone to for them. I was with another party plan company and always found it hard to book demonstrations or get sales but with since joining Stampin’ Up!® in August 2006 its been a dream – the products just sell themselves and everything they have is just sooo nice to use and as soon as you open the Idea Book & Catalogue you just ‘need’ it all! Stampin’ Up!® are so very supportive to their demonstrators it makes a nice change!

I never dreamt that Stampin Up would take off like it has and my team now has over 100 demonstrators which is such a huge thing – I never thought I’d sign one person up let alone 20!! If you would like to know more about Stampin Up and all it has to offer please contact me and we will arrange a time to get together – either in person or on the phone.

I feel so blessed through my stamping and scrapping and i have met so many lovely (and some loopy!) people and made some great friendships – some that have seen me through the bad and good times and I am blessed to be able to call them friends!

When I’m not stamping or scrapping I also enjoy reading a good mystery novel, watching TV with family or having coffee with friends – oh I enjoy the odd nap too!

I do hope you enjoy browsing through my website and if you have any questions or want more information on what Stampin’ Up!® can do for you please dont hesitate to contact me.

You can get me on my mobile 0407 282 241 or email me at

Faith makes things possible … not easy!

    Hi Leonie, I was just re-joining ESAD on Ning after seeing your message on the old ESAD and I thought I would check out your blog. After reading your profile above, I thought I just had to drop you a line. I too lost a little boy, Levi, in 2000 from Trisomy 18, he was still born at around 35 weeks also. I have never met anyone else who has had a baby with Trisomy 18. He was our first born, so as you can imagine how difficult it was for us to try again. But we have been blessed with 3 more children, but that didn’t come easy. With Levi’s pregnancy I developed Reces- disease which has been risky for each pregnancy. But it was because of Levi that I got into Scrapbooking (to be able to record my memories of him during pregnancy and my rare photos of him at birth) and from scrapbooking I have then found stamping and joined Stampin’ Up! last year. Thank you for sharing your story and for your inspiring website. – Rebecca
