Kim Hughes - Kim Hughes
I have come to know and love so many Dirty Girls and I have always hoped to join them in the dirt pile someday. Oh' my gosh what an honor it is to actually be here among such talent! Thank you SO much Jenn, for inviting me. I know that I am not a traditional stamper, but I am hoping that my creations will inspire you.
I am 38 years young and my kids and I live in Roy, Utah. Mitchell is 12 and Alayna is 10. We will be moving to Chandler, Arizona in August and we are really looking forward to our newest adventure. I am originally from Johnson, City, NY which is about 3 hours north of the big apple. I have also lived in Maryland, Oregon and Las Vegas. We are not a military family, but we sure do love making the most out of life and take nothing for granted.
I discovered scrapbooking about 10 years ago and took my time to get to know the industry. It was more important for me to raise my kids and be a SAHM while they were young, so I put my curiosity on hold. So, when my youngest went into Kindergarten, I dove into the paper crafting world head first. I started with layouts, moved into card making fairly quickly and found stamping about 3 years ago when I joined the Paper Salon design team.
I am the Illustrator who hand draws images for the Kim Hughes Collection that are manufactured by Cornish Heritage Farms. I work closely with some manufacturers and magazines which challenge me to do my best, every day. I am grateful that something I love so much has become such a huge part of my life. I am so fortunate to have made so many wonderful friends along this journey and I look forward to making more.
Thank you so much for including me in something so wonderful.
