Paper Addictions and Happy 24 of July

Here in Utah we celebrate twice in July.  I will be at Utah Pioneer days doing my Boutique. It is put on by the Osmonds. It should be lots of food, fun and entertainment. If you want to read more about it, here's the link to Utah Pioneer Days.

This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday our Sponsor is Paper Addictions. Jackie Mathews is the owner. Bug on over and check out her Blog.

A little bit about Jackie!
My name is Jacqueline Mathews and I am a crafter and designer.  I love paper, pens, doodling, stamping and above all designing.  I have a degree in fine arts with an emphasis in graphic design.  I worked in the graphic design industry for many years and quit 15 years ago to become a stay at home mom for my 3 kids.  Now that the kids are older and don’t need me as much, I am reinventing myself and have decided that I wanted to create my own line of digital stamps.  I have dabbled in rubber stamping and became a “Stampin’ up!” demonstrator and had a blast, but thought it would be more fun to create my own stamps.  I decided digital was the way to go.  It is affordable for the customer and for the designer.  I now have a digital stamp shop on Etsy called “PaperAddictions”.  I would love to create my own line of rubber stamps someday, but for now I am testing my designs out in my shop to see if anyone likes them.  I am pleasantly surprised that I have gotten a good response to the images I have designed so far.  This positive response has motivated me to create more images in the future.

Our SSW Grand Prize Winner will choose any 5 items from Paper Addictions Esty Shop.

Well, got to bug on out here. Still getting ready for my boutique. Have a Sweet day!!!
