About Me

Hi! My name is Clare Buswell, welcome to my blog! I live in Ireland in a little village in Co.Limerick, it's a beautiful and peaceful place to live and I love it here! Surrounded by nature there's endless inspiration for my creations.

I've been involved in the paper-crafting industry since 2010. I've had my paper-crafting projects published in numerous publications including Cardmaking and Papercraft and Craft Stamper magazines in the UK, Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking and CardMaker magazines in the US. 

I studied graphic design in art college and I've always enjoyed the creative process. I also love to paint and draw and I keep an art journal, which I share pages from on here from time to time. 

I have a passion for stamping and I love to hand-carve my own. I've been lucky enough to have some of my illustrations manufactured into clear stamps. 

I also love the ancient craft of paper quilling. A technique that involves rolling strips of paper into various shapes. 

When I'm not creating in my studio you'll find me in the garden! I have a real love of nature and just a little time outside everyday makes me feel energized again and I always see something that inspires my work.

I hope you leave my blog feeling inspired to create, be it a card or one of my tutorials that encourages you to make something. My aim is to spread a little creativity!
