I live in Halifax, N.S., Canada with my husband, who is also my best friend. I have 2 adult sons, working in Fort McMurray, Alberta. I keep busy working at a large grocery store in the Post Office, and I am taking a Medical Transcription course as well. I also teach stamping classes at a few local stamping stores.
I have been published in CorrespondanceART, Simply Sentiments and Paper Creations.
Terri Sproul is the producer of a new DVD called "MasquePen Magic" and the owner of Ultimate Scrapbook Retreat. She is a diverse and experienced designer and instructor for multiple companies in the paper craft world. Terri and her husband Marc have the pleasure of living in San Diego County On top Of Palomar Mountain. She has received a Bachelor of Scrapbooking Arts from Creating Keepsakes and Bachelor of Scrapbooking Education from EK Success. Terri’s passion is teaching fellow Scrapbooker’s and Stamper’s new techniques and to think ‘out of the box’ and ‘off the Page.’
I trained originally as a printed/woven textile designer and so love texture, colour and layering and generally tend to work with mixed media and recycled bits and pieces.
I've been stamping for six years and belong to various Design Teams in Europe and the USA. I also write regularly for Craft Stamper, a UK stamping magazine, appeared as guest artist in Stamper's Sampler and have recently been commissioned to write my first book which is currently underway. So its stamping, crafting and more stamping when ever I get a spare moment.

My work has been published in many UK mags over the years and more recently in the USA in several Stampington publications including Somerset Studio, several Tweety Jill books, Altered Arts magazine, Paper Creations magazine and in Holland in Art Specially magazine. Until very recently I taught workshops here in the UK but in the next couple of months I have a big change in my life........I am moving to Kazakhstan where my husband has a new job!
