Nancy Westfall

Nancy Westfall, creator and owner of The Colorful Cookie, The Colorful Cookie Club, and The Colorful Cookie Studio is a cookie decorator turned stencil designer. Nancy began decorating cookies after many years of teaching elementary school. After a period of time spent mastering decorating cookies, she was inspired to use her creativity and knowledge of technology to learn how to design and customize cookie and cake stencils. She experienced a boom in her cookie business because of the customization of cookies using specific stencil designs with various themes and company logos. Customizaton is key! Nancy’s own passion for creating what she “wanted” led her to design stencils. She is a teacher at heart, so as she began to grow her knowledge of how to design stencils using various graphic design software she taught others who wanted to learn as well. Nancy created and established a cookie stencil design tutorial blog, then an online shop for digital cookie stencil downloads and ultimately, “The Colorful Cookie Club”, which is an online membership community of cookiers who are learning to design cookie and cake stencils through Nancy’s step by step video tutorials. She has created over 350 individual video tutorials on how to use Silhouette Studio and Cricut Design Space to design and cut custom cookie and cake stencils. The video tutorials are conveniently accessed on The Colorful Cookie website. She also communicates with her members in the members only Facebook group providing additional support and LIVE interactive tutorials.
