Now it is my pleasure to introduce this wonderful crafty girl, Amy Coon of The Paperlife. And she's offering a bonus giveaway today on her blog to celebrate the announcement too. Check her out....


Get to see the personal and creative side of your favorite creative crafters.  Join Amy Coon as she talks with them and creates with them live and on air.  Your favorite crafters will be bringing a creative projects to do with Amy, while she gets a glimpse for you into their paperlives.  Get ready for sharing, creating, inspiration, but above all fun that is YOUR PAPERLIFE.


Amy Coon is a wife, a mommy (through the blessing of adoption), a daughter ("farmer's daughter" to be specific), friend, sister (in-law), an aunt, a self-taught artist, dreamer, holder of a counseling degree, and an occasional arm chair comedian (well she thinks so, {wink}).  Looking back , Amy has always been creative, and has actually been papercrafting and even art journaling for a very long time (like grade school) although, at the time, she didn't know that it had a name.  After formally finding papercrafting, or as many of you know it, scrapbooking which resulted from the birth of her children and wanting to document their milestones and then taking her first unforgettable trip to a scrapbook store, she began to  realize what crafting, photography, designing, journaling, and art did to enhance her life.  Amy explains, she had this overwhelming need to share this amazing creative knowledge with others and as a result, almost 2 years ago, she launched the online site, The Paperlife to help share, teach, and promote what she calls "living a paperlife".  The Paperlife was an instant hit with thousands of papercrafters and continues to grow and reach many more all over the globe.  Amy has recently launched Paperlife Printables, and imPressions which are her own papercrafting designs available for purchase and download right from the paperlife online store.  Which puts The Paperlife in a leading role of the latest Papercrafting evolution which is, "hybrid creating."  Paperlife imPressions are Amy's exclusive designs in partnership with the Teresa Collin's Stampmaker, which brings the power of making your own creative stamps into your very own home.  You can also catch Amy monthly on her call in podcast online and itunes called "Papertalk Live with the Papergirls" and teaching and sharing her love of papercrafting and art through her Paperlife interactive online classes.  Forever grateful for what the love of art and crafting has brought to her life, Amy cannot wait to see what sharing it and the Paperlife holds for everyone around the next corner, so, put your seatbelts on, Amy wants you to join her for the creative journey of a lifetime.
