About Me

Hi there!

I am the founder and designer behind Paper Loving.  My family includes my husband, two girls, two dogs, one cat, one hamster, and eight fish.  We love animals, and we love living a creative life! I first started blogging in 2007 as a way to connect with other crafters and SAHMs.  Over the past couple of years, I’ve been teaching myself graphic design and web development, but crafts are still my first love.

After spending years learning various handcrafts, I became more and more drawn to crafting and creating with paper.

Why paper? Because it’s:

  • economical
  • functional
  • beautiful
  • versitile
  • fun!

I love working with paper because, quite frankly, I mess up a lot!  A wrong cut in a beautiful piece of fabric can be devastating.  As can frogging something that I’ve spent months knitting.  Paper is extremely forgiving and I do much of my graphic design in Adobe Illustrator where “vectors are free”.


About Paper Loving

Paper Loving is a resource for anyone who has a printer and loves DIY.   I love creating and sharing printables.  A majority, if not all, of the printables I offer on this site are free – mostly because I feel like I’m still in the learning process, but also because I want my work to be accessible to as many people as possible.

I hope you find something fun, or useful, or lovely on this site.  Everything I create comes from love, and I truly hope I can pass some of that love onto every recipient.
