Hi, I’m Lisa. Thank you for visiting my blog.
I started Paper Pipedreams in early 2013 as a way to record my journey in my new hobby of paper-crafting. I am a writer by trade. I stumbled upon this hobby as a way to hone my visual creativity.
While I dabble a bit in mixed media, I focus on making greeting cards as mini-vignettes that express my interests. Of course, a handmade card is a wonderful way to send a custom message to a friend or family member. I am by no means a card-making expert, but I hope you find inspiration from my examples.
You’ll find a wide range of card-making styles. I started out with vintage images and then tried my hand at clean and simple designs. As a Florida native, I am drawn toward beach scenes. I also love animals, so you’ll find everything from cats and dogs to bunnies and birds. Lately I’ve been experimenting with “fashion” stamps that feature feminine images for my stylish friends. I am open to all kinds of designs; I love to learn!
As a newer blogger, I really appreciate your feedback. Please let me know which posts you like!
