Hello! I have been scrapbooking and paper crafting for over 20 years. It's my main hobby and my ongoing passion. I love when family and friends look at my scrapbooks and exclaim over the memories.

Hi. I am Danielle. I have always found ways to be creative with my decorating and dress. I am a multi crafter. I love to try new things. My sister introduced me to scrapbooking around 20 years ago. It was a great way to save my important memories and keep the stories alive. I worked in book retail for more than 10 years and really enjoyed interacting with customers and helping them grow their interests. I can’t wait to do the same in our store. Hope to see you all soon!

Our Story

We are two sisters who have always had similar interests. Even though we have a bit of an age gap, we get along swimmingly. We both like to read, travel, swim, and spend quality time with our families. Why start Craft Your Story? As kids, we loved arts and crafts. The best Christmas present we ever got was a big box of art supplies. As adults, we branched out to various crafts. Danielle gravitated toward jewelry making and crochet, with a bit of paper crafting mixed in. Lynne became obsessed with scrapbooking and junk journaling, but also loves gel plate printing and making Artist Trading Cards to send all around the world. We decided life was too short to not follow our dream of turning our passions into a career. For a while now, we've been hearing from other paper crafters that it's hard to find new paper crafting supplies in brick and mortar stores. Lots of people want to see and feel the products in person rather than buy them online. There's a sense of community in the crafting world. We want to foster that community in our shop. We look forward to helping you find just the right way to Craft Your Story!
