About the Teacher

Carissa Wiley

I started as a scrapbooker about 15 years ago, just after my son was born.  I had never done it.  I bought some stuff, gathered with friends and we shared what we were doing.  Scrapbooking led to card making and all sorts of paper crafting.  I attended a few little workshops here and there.  But mainly, I practiced. There’s no substitute for doing.  You can take classes all you want, but until you sit down with your supplies and put your hands to work, you’ll never realize your full potential. I started teaching via my blog in 2009.  There I share video tutorials and instruction weekly.  I've also taught several online classes.  I love to share what I'm doing with others and watch as their creativity is inspired by what I'm sharing. I teach because I want people to know that they can do it too!  I love breaking things down, step by step and showing others that they too can do what I do.  It’s really not complicated, it’s just a matter of taking each project step by step.  I hope people walk away from all of my classes feeling inspired and empowered.  I want them to look at things in new ways and from there, allow their creativity to blossom.  I want them to know that they can do it by taking each project step by step.
