hey!so glad you're here
My name is Christie. I'm an outdoor enthusiast, animal loving nurse turned crafty side hustler. I'm a long-time paper crafter. I started with scrapbooking when I was in high school and fell in love with the texture and capabilities of cardstock. I quickly transitioned to cardmaking, which was a perfect excuse to purchase more cardstock!
In 2013, I invested into my Silhouette Cameo 2, which I still use to this day. I struggled at first trying to learn all the design terms, but eventually began using my cameo to assist in my card making.
I started Crafty Christie's Creations in 2019 to deal with all my stress and emotions when I injured my knee. Being creative is a wonderful way to relieve stress and promotes a sense of accomplishment.
I knew if I wanted to be a successful handmade crafty business, it was time to really learn SVG design. I took an online course in Adobe Illustrator, geared specifically to SVG designers. After making my first few sales, I knew I found my home.
I started asking myself, “what pairs well with SVGs?” I decided there was a real need for cutting machine experts to show the way. I started sharing my Silhouette knowledge with my customers. If I can make learning Silhouette easier for someone else, that's spectacular.
I've always wanted to be my own boss. Crafting and teaching are where my passions lie so naturally, SVG design and craft tutorials are my business. I'm finally making my boss lady vision come true with the help of people like you!
Thanks for being here. I can't wait to get to know and serve you better.
