{Meet Designer: Jillian Shelton}

Hello there, I'm Jillian from Paper à La Mode! In 2009 I was lucky enough to marry my best friend. I am a very proud military wife. Because of that I've had the great opportunity to travel and see our beautiful country and live in some pretty cool places too. I am a furmom to two adorable furbabies, my dogs Hank and Baxter who are Papillons.
Hank is my old man, very much a Mama's boy. Baxter is my baby and he loves everything. I mean, absolutely everything and absolutely everyone. They of course are my babies until I have real human babies. {heart}

My passion for creating things came out of the blue for me. It started when a very good friend of mine asked me to attend a crop with her. I went, reluctantly, as I really had no interest in paper crafting. Until I got there, then *BAM*... Um... Ok, so I sort of love doing this!! After that day it was like a snowball effect. There was absolutely no going back. I quickly got my hands on a die cutting machine, then filled any space I had available in my tiny apartment with every paper and embellishment you can think of! My friend created a monster. An glue gun wielding monster!

Fast forward to now (with a much more adequate crafting space), I'm loving it more and more. I've met some incredible and talented people in this industry. Who I'm constantly learning from and growing as a better crafter. I hope to inspire people just as I have been inspired. Also, I'm thrilled to have the honor of being included in a design team with such talented ladies! I'll always be grateful to my friend, for introducing me to a world I never knew I'd love so much!
