Hi and welcome to my site!
I’m Alison and I like to make pretty things out of paper.
Yeah I know, I’m one of “those” types of people! On any given day, odds are you will find me in my Scrap Cave covered in glitter with ink all over my fingers!
How did this all get started?
Back in 2009 I was in between classes at BCIT (Interior Design because, you know, pretty things) waiting for daughter #3 to arrive when I decided to finish the scrapbook of my Honeymoon. Things quickly snowballed once I discovered the vibrant online community of paper crafters. The Honeymoon album led to a baby scrapbook and before I knew it I was hooked!
I am proud to say that my passion for making scrapbooks, cards, party invitations, mixed media items, and more, turned into opportunities to share that with others. I was on the Design Teams for Practical Scrappers, Let’s Get Sketchy, and S.W.A.T, as well as a Creative Team member for Amanda Robinson Studios, and a Staffer for the online magazine Scrapbook News and Review. I’ve had scrapbook layouts published in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine (formerly Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine) and Scrapbook Cards and Today Magazine. Now I make cards, gifts, decor items, and party invitations to sell at Craft Markets, as well as create layouts to save our family memories in a fun, beautiful, and tactile way.
What can I do for you?
I love to share what I’ve been working on to give my fellow scrapbookers and card makers inspiration. Sign up to my email list and you’ll receive instant access to fantastic freebies like a Top 10 List of ways to help you finish all those UFO’s (UnFinished Objects – you know you have them!) I’m always developing new content like fun classes and project based workshops which you won’t want to miss out on!
Can’t cut a straight line to save your life? Have nightmares of your grade school teachers enthusiasm for macaroni art? I got you covered sister!
Love to craft but don’t have the time? I totally get that too! Life is busy and not everyone chooses to hide out gluing paper together instead of keeping up with laundry! (Hey, sacrifices need to be made! Wash your own damn clothes!)
Let me do the crafting for you!
I love to get custom orders for party decor (banners, loot bags, etc), invitations, cards, and custom scrapbooks too. Email me (alison at alisondaydesigns dot com) with your needs. I know I can make something your girlfriends are going drool over!
