Registered Nurse to Paper Artist

Hi, I'm Farren (pronounced like Karen)

When I was working full-time as a nurse, I would design and sell paper products on the side using my Cricut cutting machine. Over several years, I taught myself how to design my own digital templates so that I could offer unique products. I never intended on sharing or selling the original templates UNTIL…

My husband’s job moved us to The Netherlands. I knew that shipping internationally would be expensive and complicated, so I decided to transition to teaching people how to make my designs themselves!…I also discovered that for creative people, like myself, half the fun is in the making of something with your hands! So, I also purchased a Silhouette cutting machine and learned the software so I can teach both Cricut and Silhouette users, which led me to...

I want you to enjoy creating with your cutting machine, so I created online workshops to guide you.

Each workshop includes step by step video tutorial instructions for Cricut Design Space and Silhouette Studio as well as assembly videos to bring your paper creations to life.

Moving abroad to The Netherlands not only allowed me to quit my day job and focus on my creative business full time, it nurtured my love for paper flowers. I was surrounded by inspiration for flowers from the tulips that grow in their fields to the gorgeous blooms that color their weekly markets. I am so thankful for the time I spent there and the paper flowers that resulted. 

I have since moved back home to the USA and live in Seattle, WA with my husband and our 11 year old Labrador Retriever, Callie. I firmly believe this is just the beginning to all the beautiful things we can create together with paper.

I look forward to seeing you in a workshop soon!!
