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
