Impossible Things are Happening Everyday

Obsessed. That is the best way to describe my passion for paper, crafts, and all things imaginative. I can think of nothing better than spending my time with a hot cup of tea (of course the occasional glass of a luxurious red wine) and amidst the company of my newfound friends; Cricut, Gypsy, and my cute but not so cuddly Cuttlebug. And who could forget the ever important company of my always supportive companion, my dog?

While scrapbooking has always been a passion, a pastime that has been stored in the closet because of a crazy, exhausting schedule, I have found that the joy of the creative process is a much needed release from the demands of daily life. Paperella Creations is the chronicle of that release.

I am so lucky to have my family supporting me the whole way through this incredible venture into creativity and imagination. My wonderful man told me, "You are only limited by your imagination." I should post those words on my wall, as there is no better illustration of the beauty of paper creations. This is the idea that defines Paperella Creations. He will also never forget to tell me, "You are only limited by our finances." So my goal? Beauty and creativity... on a budget.

Now, while Cinderella was able to make her dreams come true with the help of a fairy godmother, I am making  my dream paper creations on my own... Always, of course, with the help of my new, aforementioned friends. And as each project is presented here, I hope that it can serve as inspiration for your new creation!!! Feel free to share your ideas in the comments!

Happy Creating!



  1. Hi, I saw on "On a Stampage" that you're also new in blog/cardmaking land! Although from reading this post you allreaydy have a background in being creative, and from your blogdesign I can see that you have an eye for design too! (I can see it yes, but DO it is an entirely other thing!) :) I recognize what you write (though a cat instead of a dog and only a cuttlebug).
    It is good to see someone else new in cardmaking. If you have newbie tips to share I'll gladly read them!

  2. Oh my goodness do I have newbie tips!!! Like a million of them!!! I am so new to this card making business and have been working with my (hopefully soon to be) future mother-in-law who is a Stampin' Up rep and SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO amazing at card making. She is the one who really inspired me to get in the business. Take a look at my next post, and I will share some of my "first timer" tips, ideas, and mistakes of course!! So glad you are following my blog. I can't wait to see what you create!!!
