About Lea

My name is Lea Lawson, and I reside in {frigid} Fargo, North Dakota. I have been married to my husband, Josh, for 12 years, and we have two of the cutest dogs in the world- a yorkie named Bailey and a cocker spaniel named Sadie. I am an engagement & wedding photographer, who also happens to be an avid paper crafter.

I have been crafting in some shape or form for as long as I can remember. When I was younger, I would use stationary items (Lisa Frank was my idol) and stickers, then cut up my photos (EEEK!) and arrange them together. The finished product would hang all over my walls and closet doors. When I graduated from high school, my aunt Amy gave me a scrapbooking kit, and my love affair with paper crafting started...

I have "formally" been part of the paper crafting industry since 2002, and have been blessed to work as a creative team member for multiple manufacturers & stores over the years.  My crafting primarily revolved around making cards, but I also love to create gift packaging with my products and I dabble in digital scrapbooking.

You will also find me blogging quite often during the week, participating in sketch & other types of inspiration challenges!  I love checking out blogs and gaining inspiration from my fellow card makers...so you will surely see me around!!
