I have to tell you every since I "met" Lisa online through Fiskateers, running into her over at Cosmos Cricket and then designing for Fiskars I have marveled at her creativity. I had the privilege of meeting her in person once at CHA and she is the dearest and sweetest person. I want to welcome Lisa Falduto as our Guest Designer for Debby's Dream Studio and Debby's Dare.
I sent Lisa a box full of challenges with our new Jenni Bowlin and Maya Road Foundation. I want to share a little teaser now and you will have to come back a see all that she has created!
All my life I have been surrounded by crafters! Everything from fabric, wood, and paper has been woven into my life, a heavy influence drawn from my parents while growing up. I’ve dabbled in candle making, counted cross-stitch, sewing, woodworking, knitting, crocheting, painting, etc. I’ve enjoyed each craft I have tried and have learned so many creative things along the way.
Paper has always fascinated me! As I child I shredded paper to make wonderful culinary dishes with my toy cookware. As a student in school I used paper to create many projects for homework assignments. As an adult I used paper to create bulletin boards, games, puzzles, displays, and so many other things in my preschool classroom.
About 15 years ago I discovered rubber stamping and began creating cards. But this time it was different, I was obsessed! I made a natural progression into scrapbooking and then to altered items, all now a daily part of my life. There is nothing I enjoy more than sitting down with a pile of paper, embellishments, stamps, and tools to create something memorable. Paper crafting is my passion!
I have been fortunate to take my paper crafting to a professional level by serving on several manufacturer design teams as well as getting to do a bit of traveling and teaching. I also do freelance work for several companies by designing trade show projects as well as designs for their websites.
When I am not elbow deep in paper and adhesive I love spending time with my husband and two daughters. I also love to bargain shop and garden.
Lisa used the Jenni Bowlin Black and Red paper lines to create both these great projects. She included Maya Road's gingham ribbon and Trinket Pin Vintage. Do you want to create your own paper craft ?
