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 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.
While I really enjoy drawing, making crafts and the art of crafting with paper, glue or tools does not come naturally to me.
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!
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.
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.
Published in several coloring books & eventually publishing my own – Choose Joy Asshole | a sassy, sweary adult coloring book fort those who need to vent now and then! **This book is NOT for children.
