Hi there fellow creative human!

I'm Carrie, the hot mess, creative heart and soul behind Inspirational Zest and Carrie Stephens Art.  Welcome to my home here on the web! 

My goal here is to share lots of fun printable art, original SVG cut files, printable art and clipart images for your digital projects, giving you the extra ZEST to start your next creative DIY craft projects.  I am not an expert crafter; I learn as I go and hope to encourage you to do the same along with me.


Crafting does not come naturally to me.

While I really enjoy drawing, making crafts and the art of crafting with paper, glue or tools does not come naturally to me, but i still really want to do all the fun crafty projects!. 

I am often unorganized and make a HUGE mess that I don't like to clean up, but I still love it and want to explore and do something creative any chance I get.  If I can make it through a craft project from start to finish, you can too!

I have been SELLING digital art for 16 years!

It all started with a love of taking photos of my babies.  I found Digital Scrapbooking when it was just a micro-community of SAHM's teaching each other how to use photoshop and digital graphics to create scrapbooks.

It didn't take long, and I was hooked!  I began teaching myself how to use photoshop and illustrator to make digital scrapbook layouts and soon after, my own digital graphics for scrapbooking kits.

For 7 years, I also designed several lines of Scrapbooking Papers & Embellishments for Creative Memories scrapbooking company.

Example of The Digital Scrapbooking Kits and Digital Layouts that i used to make
The Digital Scrapbooking Kits and Digital Layouts looked like this!

My digital art business was formerly known as FishScraps.

FishScraps -Take one byte and you'll be hooked!  

It was Cute and weird just like me.  

FishScraps was born, it served me well, but I outgrew it.

I manage and create digital art for several online shops!

  • CarrieStephensArt : My successful Etsy shop featuring a selection of digital clip art & backgrounds.
  • CSPrintableart : a shop focusing on printables | coloring pages, stickers & digital transfer images.
  • A shop at Creative Market that focuses on editable vector versions of my most popular designs.
  • A shop at Teachers Pay Teachers with licensing terms more suited towards Educators creating lesson plans to sell in their own shops.
