About Heidi

Heidi’s love of papercrafting began over 10 years ago creating scrapbooks for birthdays and fun events. Then, one day, she picked up a cardmaking magazine and fell in love with all the creative options stamps and dies had to offer. She finds inspiration for her cards in all kinds of interesting places.
