Too much fun at the Stampin’ Up! Convention

Hi!  My name is Patti Carbonell and I want to welcome you to the Paper Doodle Ink blog. I am  a relatively new  paper crafter in that I have only been doing it for a couple of years.  The only other craft I tried was ceramics and maybe some sewing in high school, but that was a long time ago and I find paper crafting much more FUN.

My paper crafting story starts when  I accidentally stumbled into Stampin’ Up!   I was looking for ways to create one of my  long time dreams  of creating a scrapbook wall that looked…….well, how do I say “cool” and not like someone just threw up (sorry) on my wall.  Well, I haven’t done the wall yet, but I have been busy learning the art of paper.  In addition to paper crafting, I have been busy learning  how to build my blog and become active with social media.

I fell in love with the art of playing with paper.  It’s easy, it’s fun, and I’ve met a lot of new friends along the way.  Stampin’ Up! came into my life at the perfect moment.  My husband and I had recently (semi) moved from our home town in Florida to become caretakers  for my dad in Arizona.  At any rate, Stampin’ Up! has provided me with an abundance of entertainment while I am away from my home and I hope that I can share some of my experiences with you.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!  Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about Stampin’ Up! products.
