Hi and welcome!  I am Kristen Bartel, and I want to thank you for visiting me here at my blog.  I hope you leave feeling inspired!


I'm a mechanical engineer by day living in the Saskatchewan prairies, but enjoy spending almost all of my free time papercrafting.  I started making cards and scrapbook pages with my mom when I was twelve years old, and after graduating from university rediscovered my love for this hobby.  

 I seem to pick up more hobbies than I have time for, including travelling, helping on our grain farm, gardening, landscaping, home renovations, calligraphy, brush lettering, and playing piano.  We are lucky to have an amazing farmyard with lots of space to enjoy our short summer months.

My papercrafting hobby definitely consumes the majority of my free time, and has significantly grown since I picked it up again.  After sharing cards on instagram for two years, I felt it was time to make the leap to starting a blog.  I like the freedom of sharing more information on how to recreate each project!

Thanks for joining me here, and I hope you are inspired to make something fun!
