A Little Bit About Featured Artist: ExpressivePapers

Here is some information about the featured artist so you can get to know her better:

I have always loved just about any kind of art and craft, and have dabbled in a number of different crafts throughout my life.

I discovered scrapbooking and paper piecing six years ago, after retiring from my day job (nursing) and finding myself here at home with a lot more free time on my hands. Soon after that, I started making handmade cards.

Designing handcrafted cards has seemed like a natural progression to me, particularly since I have always loved giving and receiving cards. I had quite a collection of greeting cards, even before I started creating handmade cards myself!

I get the inspiration for my cards and paper piecings from a variety of sources, including beautiful scrapbook papers and embellishments, songs, movies, quotes and sayings, my family, my friends, and my dogs. My husband and I are the proud owners of two adopted ex-racing greyhounds.

I am constantly on the watch for fun or inspirational quotes and sayings to incorporate into my cards and paper sets.

I love the sense of creativity and satisfaction that I get from making cards, scrapbook layouts, and paper piecing sets that other people enjoy.
