Today on the Paper Crafter’s Library blog, we’re continuing our weekly featured artist spotlight whereby each week we spotlight a different artist/designer in the paper crafting & mixed media world and introduce you to their fabulous work. Today we’re thrilled to welcome Ashley Stephens.

Before we show you Ashley’s project, let’s get to know her a little bit more…


My name is Ashley Stephens and I’m from Boise, Idaho though I currently live in Germany with my husband and four year old. I work full time at a youth center and go to school full time for graphic design so life is very busy but that’s just how I like it! I’ve been scrapbooking for about five years now and have been on design teams for Simple Stories and Pebbles. I also knit, quilt, sew clothing, and dabble in calligraphy. If there were more hours in the day that list would be even longer! Typically my style is pretty straightforward and bold- I like white space and clean lines.




Halfway To The Moon and Stars

I started this page knowing I wanted to use the gold star rub-ons. I don’t have a lot of gold accessories in my stash so I opted to create my own using glitter embossing powder. I used double sided tape to create the stripe of gold along the left side and a graphic stamp for a bit of punch on the right. After that, the rest of the page came together quickly! I also tucked my journaling in behind my photo due to space constraints but also to add to the layered look I started on the right side.


Here’s a close up of the journaling tag.

  1. I just took a look at Ashley’s blog and bookmarked it to return. She does a bit of everything (and I do mean everything) — and does it all well. What a cutie pie little boy, too. If I scrapbooked, I’d like my pages to be like hers. Thanks for another great featured artist post.

  2. Ashley has a wonderful, happy blog; her pages are a 5*****! thank you for sharing!
