About Me

Julie_Headshot
I live in Alpharetta, Georgia with my husband, Bryan, our two children, Lillie & Nolan, and our fur babies, Izzy (cat), Murphy (Golden Retriever) and Kona (Chocolate Lab). When I’m not working (as a records manager), mommying, or paper crafting, I like to binge watch TV shows!

My love affair with Stampin’ Up! started when I made a career change and, with some extra time on my hands, I started to dabble in card making. My favorite technique at the time was heat embossing, so, after doing some research, I learned that Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Buddy was a must-have tool. I placed an order for one with my local demonstrator (Hi, Tina!), she sent me a catalog to enjoy, and I fell in love with EVERYTHING! Let’s just say I had a VERY.LONG.WISH.LIST. So, I joined the Stampin’ Up! family in 2010 for the discount and it has changed my life!

unnamed-3.jpgBorn and raised in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, I grew up watching my mother, Pixie, create beautiful handmade things with fabric – photo albums, picture frames, jewelry boxes, tissue boxes and more, and her creations continue to be cherished by the recipients decades later. She lost her battle with colon cancer in 1997, but her spirit is with me as I pursue my passion in paper crafting. In her memory, I’ve named my blog, The Paper Pixie.

I truly enjoy sharing my creations with you. Creativity is contagious and I hope to inspire you! Each and every one of you has a creative side (yes, you do!) and Stampin’ Up! offers the best products and supplies for you to express that creativity!  Thank you for visiting The Paper Pixie – I love paper crafting and I love sharing it with you!
