Ashley has a passion for paper crafting, photography, fashion, and trying new recipes in the kitchen. She has always been interested in the arts and started her first scrapbook in high school which was long before any industry products were available. After an encouraging push from her husband, McArthur, Ashley started blogging in 2008 when she discovered the paper crafting online world. Currently, she designs for Papertrey Ink and Crate Paper. When she's not in her studio, you can find her taking photos, traveling, surfing the Internet, or watching HGTV or Food Network. She is also a new mom to Lauren.
