Embark on a unique journey around the globe, as the 2024 Artisan Design Team introduce you to their hometown on the Artisan Road Trip. I share my curbside chronicles of San Diego, California here in USA. Having lived here all my life, I give a taste of where I live through the power of papercraft.


San Diego is known for its ideal climate, beautiful beaches, nearby mountains, and deserts. I live in north county, 40 minutes inland from the coast, in a city named Poway. The cards I’m sharing today give you an idea of what you would see on a walk behind my house. I paired each card with a sentiment from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set, expressing friendship, and open arms to guests.

Artisan Design Team Road Trip


I found the beautiful scenes in Meandering Meadows Designer Paper. The circle was cut with an Everyday Details Die.The tiny holes were “begging” for some Linen Thread, and I gave “detail” to the background with additional Everyday Details Dies. “San Diego” was created with the Mini Alphabet Dies, Meandering Meadows DSP, and Foam Adhesive Sheets. I love how you can say anything you want with alphabet dies!


This card shows plein air painting, along the path. The easel is from the Crafting With You Die Set, and the background was cut with a Deckled Rectangles Die. “Life is better when you’re crafting.” Don’t you agree?


This open door gives you a good view of the native, California Poppies. I fussy cut the door from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set, and “paper pieced” inside the frame. The Exposed Brick Embossing Folder gives texture to the background. I put out the “welcome mat” for you!


Thanks for visiting!


I look forward to designing for you each and every month throughout this year and hope you’ll join me. Continue on the Artisan Road Trip to another curbside, in another town and learn a little about where we each live and design from. Enjoy the ride.
