Hi, I'm Julie.
I make cards.
My love of card-making began when a cousin sent me cards she had made and I asked her HOW she made them. She explained and so began my addiction to rubber stamps, ink and paper. I blame her for all of it. :)
For over 25 years I have been designing cards and teaching the art of rubber stamping and card-making. Back in 2005 I started a blog called Paper Trufflez to chronicle my journey with card-making and paper crafting. It's been interesting to watch my own evolution alongside the art form itself--I'm very drawn to clean, simple, minimalistic design, which can, at times, be trickier to execute than it looks.
Today, I design clear stamps and paper craft dies that are available exclusively at ellenhutson.com under the Essentials by Ellen brand. You can see all my designs HERE.
I live on Whidbey Island, WA with my Mister and a very furry white dog named Bear. We have a grown daughter and son, plus the cutest granddaughter on the planet! ;)
