About Kelly

Kelly Kent - mypapercraftjourney.com.

Hi! Thanks for joining me on my papercraft journey.  It all started for me in 2010 when a friend asked me to come along to a Stampin’ Up! workshop her mum was hosting.  I’m delighted to say that was the beginning of a wonderful journey.  I joined the obsession that is Stampin’ Up! and I’ve never looked back.  I joined Stampin’ Up! in 2012 when they ran a great enticing free DSP promotion.  DSP was my weakness then, and it’s my weakness now.  Plus anything Big Shot, crisp colour cardstock, beautiful embellishments, punches for punch art … oh dear!

I’ve decided to call my blog ‘my papercraft journey’ because that’s what it is to me – a journey of discovery, growth & education.  When I look back at some of the first cards I made, I cringe – they were very beginner.  It’s taken me years to evolve my style and I’m sure it will undergo more changes as my skills continue to develop, as I learn more techniques, and as I grow as a person & a crafter.  I love gaining inspiration from my customers (the best one being my Mum!), blogs of other demos, Pinterest and the world around me.

Aside from Stampin’ Up! which is a daily habit for me, I am wife to Haydn, Mummy to Alexa & Maddie and a part-time Speech Pathologist.  We live in a beautiful regional town called Bunbury, in the South West of Western Australia.  I grew up in Perth – Western Australia’s capital city, so still have lots of connections there including my parents and many of our extended family.  Thanks for sharing my papercraft journey with me & good luck with your own.  Kelly x

  1. Hello from Canada Kelly, love your blog, found you when I saw the fishing card on Juky 26th, I am trying to duplicate it and have it almost figured out but can’t seem to get the hat right. I have looked at your punches but tried the cupcake one and it sort of works, but it doesn’t look right!can you tell me how you did the hat as I am casing the card for my son who loves fishing! Love the idea of it, thanks so much for sharing!

    • Gday from Australia Eileen! Thanks for visiting mypapercraftjourney and I’m so glad you’re having a go at the fisherman punch art.The hat is a series of large oval punches that have been trimmed down to size (or double cut with the punch). Good luck with your card. Kelly x

  2. Hi Kelly, love your bunny made from the oval framelets, but wondered what size paper you started with. The ovals don’t seem to fit on a 4X51/4 piece of cs. Thank you.

  3. Hello Kelly,

    I’m a new demonstrator in Canada and I stumbled across your blog when I was looking for some storage ideas. The markers and ink storage is really great and thank you so much for that.

    I really love your clean and crisp designs, but you also use colour brilliantly. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Hi Kelly –
    I just pinned a card of yours using the Flower Patch Set. It was for a 50th birthday. Any chance you could share the ink colors you used? It is gorgeous!!!!

    Thanks much –
