About me

Retrato de Happy Cardmaking

My name is Isabel Rivera, I live in Valencia, Spain (European Union) and I am in the middle of my thirties. I am specialized in coporativa communications. Few years ago a friend told me about stamps and inks. I replied to her: “What are you talking about? Is there something called scrapbooking?”.

Then I discovered pattern papers, Big Shot, acrylic stamps, watercolors, Distress inks, Jennifer McGuire… and cardmaking. And my life changed.

I usually laugh about life with my hubby, I do my best to survive under job insecurity and I learn everyday how to be mum with my two years old little girl. If you want to know more personal details about me and my scrapbooking addiction, check this and this post. These are two good examples of what I publish from time to time to let you know myself a bit more.

I decided to spend time on what brings motivation, knowledge and creativity to my life. It’s clear to me that cardmaking, mixed media and this blog are an important part in my life. I am very happy for sharing this project, Happy Cardmaking, with all of you.

Design teams

From April 2014 until January 2016 I joined La Pareja Creativa design team. I collaborated with Todo Stencil from 2014 and I was part of their design team from September to December 2015. As well I joined A Blog Named Hero‘s design team 2015 all along.

Recently I joined Kora Projects design team during 2017. And I often use DecoArt products thanks to their blogger program.

Cardmaking is bringing to me fantastic people to share this crazyness. Some of them organize together a cardparty in our own city, from time to time, to share funny time, experiencies, tips and much more. If you love cardmaking and have the chance of coming to Valencia, please join us!
