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! ;)
