Hey friends! I’m Stephanie… A silly mommy of two little ones living in Arizona with my amazing husband, Bryan, and our awesome pup Hurley! I am a lover of messy hair, distressed jeans, casual styles, vintage cameras, big sweaters, snuggling with my sweeties, and spreading happiness.

I fell in love with card making in 2013 and it has been a passion of mine ever since!! I am having so much fun creating and playing and I’m beginning my obsession with Traveler’s Notebooks and Scrapbooking. 🙂

My family and I are giant goofballs and we love to have a good time!! You can usually find us spending time with friends and family, playing outside, making messes, dancing in the kitchen, reading together, and laughing hysterically.

Thanks for stopping by my little craft & card home!

Xo, Stephanie

    Just wanted to leave a comment to say Hi, found you thru the Advent Blog Hop, which has been so much fun! I read your profile, and have NEVER wrote to anyone before but you and your hubby and family sounded just like Me and my hubby, that is how I would describe us, we are going on 18 yrs married, Soulmates, totally madly in LOVE with each other and are Total Goofballs, actually clumsy goofballs. I love your style in cards, very cool.
    Well, hubby is calling me, got to go, just wanted to say Hi, and love your website.

    Stephanie, thanks for all your tips and video’s. I really like and appreciate your unique, rustic and elegant style.
    Wondering whether you would consider sharing how to put a travel journal or family album together? I’m new to card making but also want to use my supplies to create a journal marking my son’s milestones and time with him. Hope you can find the inspiration for this… x
