Mary Smith Admin/Owner
Hello, I'm Mary Smith Owner/Creator of Createful Heart Design. I am a wife, been married to my hubby 36 years, he also served in the military for 20 years. He is also co-owner & designer of Createful Heart Design. My interest with making cards began in the early 1980's when I decided that Hallmark was getting just a little too pricey for me, and I thought, well hey, I think I could do this too! So, with a little imagination and some neat watercolor pencils I set up my crafting on the kitchen table... there I focused making cards for Anniversaries, Birthdays and so on... each card was created just for that person. Since I drew out each card, it would take approximately 1 to 2 hours. But I figured since we were first married and didn't have a lot of money to spend on extra's like birthday presents and such, then the card would be the "gift". I got started with making digital images back in 2002,.. when I first got PSP. I was determined to learn the process of making cool images... the process was a bit difficult at first, but I did learn. My first "scribble" came out as a vase with flowers...then I used to color in all my images...never thinking of just making them outlined. Not until 2011 that I decided to create outlined images...and first just offered them for "free"... I started my Createful Heart Digis & Design in February of 2017. I decided on the name Createful because I am reminded to be Grateful to God for all my talents.

I live in the north west of Britain on the Wirral peninsula which is close to Liverpool and north Wales.  I'm single and work full time as an Activities Coordinator for a charity called Abbeyfield which provides care for older people.  I also work part time as a class tutor for a local stamping company teaching workshops every other month.  Like lots of card makers I started off as a cross stitcher and then progressed to stamping after going to a card making workshop many years ago.  I love working with stamps and digi stamps and have an addiction for pretty papers and for Promarkers.

My interest in card making began in the late 1980’s when my daughter went to summer camp. I would stamp all of my letters and envelopes to her. She still has those letters! Over the years I continued to stamp and also teach and demonstrate card making.

Card making and paper crafting is a favorite of mine, but I also enjoy cross stitching and quilting.

I live in central Massachusetts, have a son and daughter, and 3 granddaughters. I’m also mom to 3 little rescue dogs.

Crafting passion: From childhood I've enjoyed dabbling in different arts and crafts and the passion grew through 4-H club and the FHA (FCCLA) organization. Flower arranging, wreath making, and sewing are also creative interests. I'm also a certified teacher so today's card-making and scrapbooking sort of morphed from years of making bulletin board and wall decor from my classrooms! Reduce, reuse, recycle have been used in my classroom decor and show up in many of my cards, layouts, and tags. It's amazing where I've discovered great graphic designs! This new opportunity to promote Createful Heart Designs is a new exciting chapter in my blogging and social media postings!
