TESTIMONIALS:

“Vivian is a gem!!! Everything she creates is unique and perfectly showcases her personal style while skillfully weaving in great products (cough cough Hampton Art).  She is filled with energy and a passion to design, produce and explain her craft and technique to others through her thorough and enthusiastic  blog posts.  Vivian is always one to encourage others and does a great job supporting craft stores and sharing her projects on their social media sites as well as on her personal blog.  Her personality is magnetic and it’s truly an honor to work with such a refreshing designer! We can’t wait to see what she dreams up for Hampton Art, and other paper crafting companies in the future!
-Kim Barrett, Former Director of Marketing, Hampton Art

“We have been thrilled to have Vivian on our design team as an educator this year.  She has such a refreshing, unique style in her artwork, and does wonderful video tutorials showcasing innovative and creative ways to use the products in our kits.  I can tell you that her tutorials inspire not only our customers, but our other designers and even ME to try new techniques. She is a joy to work with, chat with on our forum, and a great contributor to our team!”
-Melinda Kelly, Owner, Scraps of Darkness

“We had the opportunity to work with Vivian during January-April, 2013.  Throughout the entire duration of her term, Vivian’s work was impeccable.  She was a pleasure to work with, and we continue to be impressed with her work.

We highly recommend Vivian and are thrilled to give her a recommendation.”
