I have been married to my best friend for 18+ years. We have 4 kids, 3 girls and 1 boy ranging in age from 6 to 14. When I am not fulfilling my role as a stay-at-home mom, I am a college student at DATC studying Graphic and Web design, (the closest degree you can get to scrapbooking). I am also the owner and graphic designer for my own business, Graphik Xpressions - a one stop shop for all your graphic design needs.
I love all things about paper crafting, which has lead to a happy hobby of hoarding all sorts of paper crafting supplies. Some of my favorite supplies and tools are pretty paper, lots of ribbon, bling, glitter, adhesive, wire, brads, ATG gun, my cricut and over 100 cartridges, crop-a-dile, spray paint, trimmer,.........I could go on, but I think you get the idea.
My passion in papercrafting is making altered art. I believe that you can make ANYTHING into a crafty project, and I have been known to turn very unusual things into something useful and beautiful. We are surrounded by things just waiting to be created.
Previously I have taught classes for local craft stores, one of my favorite things to tell the students is "How does it live in your crafty world?" I understand that some people like to copy a project, but I encourage everyone to step back and try to think of how to add your own creative touch.
I hope that my work can inspire you to try new techniques, think about papercrafting in a new way, help you step out of your box and find your own creative world.
