Meet The Ellen Hutson Design Team - Lisa Spangler

I’ve always loved making things – a day without crafting is just not the same. I get a little grumpy if I don’t have time to play with paper – okay make that more than a little grumpy, lol! I love making cards and mailing them to friends and family and then finding out that I made their day. I also love being part of this community of crafters as I’ve made so many dear friends this way.

I find inspiration everywhere, but mostly from nature. Nature truly is amazing! Sometimes I look at a flower or a sunset and I almost can’t believe it’s real. I’ve taken to keeping a notebook with ideas, color combinations or stamp and sentiment combos to try. Sometimes I get inspired by the products themselves, especially watercolor! I love watching paint mix and mingle on the page.

Essentials by Ellen Everyday Doodles – that cactus!!

Gotta have the matching dies!

These sentiments crack me, and I find myself reaching for them again and again.

I’ve learned so much about watercolor from this set!

My favorite new tool! I love the little wells for mixing color.

This is my fave black ink, hands down. It keeps details so well and I love that it’s waterproof!

These things have changed my life! Don’t get little fuzzies from baby wipes anymore!

What did we do before the MISTI?

Arches Cold Press is the best, hands-down!
