My name is Sidnie Des Jardins, and I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. I met my husband at an 18 and under club, and we’ve been together for the past 28 years. I didn’t start in cardmaking. I started with creating T-shirts for my family, and a friend of mine thought I should sell them, so I started an Etsy account. I was looking for different types of T-shirt designs on YouTube, and I ran across a card made by Jennifer McGuire. I was hooked!  So I tossed all of my T-shirt making products and started buying paper crafting products. I began to practice card making and learned by watching videos on YouTube. In 2018 I opened up my Instagram account. In mid 2018 Simon Says Stamp offered me a home, and I’ve been there ever since.  I’m still learning and having the best time meeting people.

What is your go-to, must have tool?

My go-to tool has to be my MISTI. My stamping skills without my MISTI are horrible. I would probably waste so much cardstock and ink trying to get an accurate stamped image without it!

If you had an extra half hour in the day, what would you do?

That extra half hour would be spent catching up with my crafty friends and seeing what they’ve been up to that day.

When did you start papercrafting and how did it come about?  

I started paper crafting a few years ago (late 2017). I used to make fun t-shirts for my family when we would go to Disneyland. I was looking for other designs on YouTube and ran into a card from Jennifer McGuire. I was HOOKED.
