LATEST NEWS: Happy October! We've spent the last few months designing new pattern collections and now they are officially available for purchase as printed craft papers! They are 12" x 12" sheets, printed on both sides - so you receive two prints of each pattern in the collection. They can be used for ANY craft - scrapbooking, card making, decoupage and anything you can dream up to cut on a personal cutting machine like a Cricut or Silhouette. The possibilities are ENDLESS! We're also in the process of launching a line of printed craft elements as well as party and holiday decor. Stay tuned for the details!
In July 2021 we're celebrating the launch of Sassy Snaps by TACtile Studio. Sassy Snaps are 20mm Snap Buttons that fit all 20mm snap button jewelry and accessories and they are handmade from my original digital paper patterns. I've teamed up with my long-time colleague turned very good friend, Tiffany Green, who owns Tiffany Green Designs. She came to me with the idea and I LOVED it! When I saw the first snap buttons made with my patterns I fell in love even more! Tiffany and I had a 4-hour (no exaggeration) phone conversation and the rest is history in the making!
In July 2018 I took a much needed break from this business after a few tumultuous years. Almost 2 years later, in the summer of 2020, I jumped back in feet first! I am working on new projects and using new mediums and really just being creative. I won't be focusing on digital design templates and items as I was - I'm working on tangible goods. Things that you can decorate your home with and items to help create and archive memories.
As I've gotten older I have realized that memories - both making new ones and remembering the old ones - along with having a cozy peaceful space full of things that bring comfort or make you laugh are two things that really matter. Everyone deserves a peaceful retreat from this world that can at times be so wicked. I have become mindful in the items I hang on my walls and decorate my family's space with. I have always been a lover of photography as it is the one medium that lets you instantly capture a single moment in time and freeze it for eternity. Having lost people I love, and having children that are growing way too fast, I have realized just how precious those memories are.
I am very excited for this new journey in my 18-year-long journey as a graphic designer and creative entrepreneur. I hope you will come along with me! Stay tuned!!
