This week's featured shop is Cards by Emily.
1. Tell us about you and your shop.
Hello ~ My name is Emily. Creating cards and scrapbooks has been my favorite hobby ever since I was a little girl. I have been making greeting cards for friends and family about 6 years, started selling them at craft fairs and gift shops in January of 2007, and opened Cards by Emily in March of 2008. Cards by Emily has been my favorite way to sell cards, and I am also planning to open my own web shop in the near future.
2. How did you get started in your craft?
My parents bought me my first scrapbook when I was 10. Ever since then, my family has no need to ask me what I would like for Christmas or a birthday - they know what I will say - “Scrapbooking supplies!”
3. What is your favorite material or tool? I have many favorites; here are a few: polka-dotted ribbon, Bazzill cardstock, and 3D foam. The Sizzix die cut machine is my favorite tool!
4. Where do you get your design inspiration from?
Some artists who have inspired my work are the great Mary Engelbreit!, TayloredExpressions, and Anna Griffin.
