ABOUT ME

Juliana grew up in a creative household loving art, design, and making things with her hands. She gives all the credit to her creative mother who loved to paint, sew and draw. Her mother also photographed her daily life and kept all of these photos stored and displayed in photo albums. Nearly 15 years ago she found her true passion in paper crafting and scrapbooking thanks to the combination of being exposed to these creative activities and photographic documentation of her daily life. Since 2008 she has been creating and sharing paper crafting projects on her blog (http://www.17turtles.com/).

She has been a project designer in the paper craft/scrapbook industry since 2007. She has been fortunate to work for many top manufacturers including: Bo Bunny, Bella Blvd, Elle's Studio, SRM Stickers, Provocraft, Pebbles, and Jillibean Soup. Her projects have been published in a variety of magazines and idea books and she has had projects displayed at the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show.

When Juliana is not creating, she is a wife to her best friend and the love of her life. She has a fondness for coffee, Dr. Pepper, Mexican food, turtles and antiquing. In her spare time she enjoys running, working out, cooking, and reading science and historical fiction.
