Hey there, I’m Laurel Beard, and I’ve been a cardmaker for a whopping 17 years! I stumbled into this magical world when a friend mentioned “stamping,” and I thought she was talking about postage stamps (oops!). But once she introduced me to handmade cards, I knew I had found my passion. I am also the co-owner of a successful 6-figure online business, Papercrafters Get Organized.
My YouTube videos are all about creating handmade cards using the supplies you already have, so you don’t have to break the bank. I believe that everyone should be able to make beautiful cards, no matter their budget.
A few years ago, I added watercolor to my repertoire, and I’m hooked! Nature and color are my biggest inspirations, and I love painting landscapes, animals, abstract art, and surface patterns. Here in my shop, you will find all of my work. I offer two different styles. One is a high quality print I do myself and the other is download of my print, where you can print it yourself or use it it other ways.
You can catch me on my YouTube channel, where I share my cardmaking tutorials. I also have an art shop, where you can find all my watercolor pieces. And of course, I am on Instagram, and Pinterest, where I love connecting with fellow crafters. If you want to stay up-to-date on all my latest projects and tips, be sure to subscribe to my newsletter.
I’m always open to ideas and requests so feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks for stopping by!
