About Me

___________________________My Photo________________________
1CardCreator
I am excited to share my passion for papercrafting with you. I think we all have so much creativity built up and hiding in each of us, we just don’t know how to access it. It’s intoxicating to feel so proud of what you just made, and the pleasure you get from giving it to someone is amazing. I am an excellent organizer, I love to help people through example and encouragement, and I love to create beautiful handmade cards. It is so empowering to take paper, stamps, dies and embellishments to create beautiful handmade cards. My real love is Hybrid digital card making, where I use digital images and papers to make my projects.  Everything gets printed and pasted together, the only digital part of it is the papers and images that I use.  I have a background in sales and marketing. I live in Michigan with my wonderful husband and I have two adult children, who inspire, encourage and indulge me in everything I do. Along with card making, I am passionate about cooking. I love to experiment and make up new recipes, which my family loves to taste test. I collect antique cookbooks and I love to read through them to see how women lived at that time in history. I have participated in card clubs and card swaps. You will find my blog at 1CardCreator.blogspot.com.  I have a card shop at http://www.1CardCreator.etsy.com which is not active at this time, but feel free to read my reviews there.
My E mail address is  1cardcreator@luckymail.com Thanks for taking the time to get to know me.
