About Me

TiffCraftClosetSelfie

My name is Tiffany Johnson. I’m a SAHM, an Army wife, Army daughter, avid papercrafter, music lover, dancer wannabe, runner, and pseudo-chef! I’m a very eclectic person and will try anything at least once! I love the great outdoors as much as I love curling up with a book in my club chair. As for my family, they are #1. My husband is in the Army, CJ is all about movies and video games, Liam is a professional helicopter maker (legos), and our newest addition, Lillianne Marie, loves dancing. Our family also includes 2 furry friends, Sandy (our little dog) & Bella (our puppy).

I came across cardmaking in high school when I would make these magazine card collages. I’d cut out squares the same color and make a collage out them! I stumbled upon stamping when a friend of mine introduced me to Stampin Up! I was instantly hooked. Stamping, cardmaking, and scrapbooking helped me find myself after having two boys back to back. It is my creative outlet, my passion, and that special something that makes me, ME!
