Originally published in 2016.

I was so inspired when I read this story from Lia. And I’m happy to share it with you today! Lia’s an inspiration to me and I know this will encourage you today too!

Hi Lia! Share with us what you do.

LiaGriffith200SquareI run my own creative lifestyle brand. Together with my team we share daily DIY projects that people can download and make at home. Our mission is to teach, inspire and reignite creativity. By sharing our DIY projects we hope to encourage others to get in touch with their creative side, explore their potential and generally have a good time!

How did you get started? Tell us your story!

I was working at a wedding stationery company as a graphic designer and I began sharing my paper flower designs on their blog. My first paper rose received such a positive response that I took the opportunity to start my own blog and it grew from their. I now work in a studio out of Portland, Oregon with a team of 10 writers, crafters, photographers and designers. We have our own crepe paper and tissue paper line, designed specifically with exquisite crafting in mind. We have our own line of Halloween and Fall craft kits in Jo Ann Fabric and Craft stores and a line of Lia Griffith crafting tools due to launch next Spring – it’s all very exciting!

That is so amazing – you just keep growing!! Do you have advice for those looking to get started?

about-photo-01Be brave and give it a go. I had a very clear plan when I started; to publish one blog post per day every day for an entire year. Having that to aim for helped drive me every day. I taught myself the business behind blogging and watched endless YouTube videos on how to take great photographs. I strived to create high quality content every single time and I think that helped my business to grow as quickly as it did. I had a strong idea about my brand image and I kept that in mind with every post I published and every photograph I took. It was hard work, it still is, but that hard work is paying off and I feel very lucky to be where I am today.

Lucky? Or hard work? 🙂 How do you define success and how did you get there?

I am able to wake up every day and do what I love. That to me is the definition of success. To be able to make a living doing what I enjoy most, around people I adore is just the best.

How did you get these amazing crafting skills and is it something you have to work at? 

about-quoteI have been crafting since I was 6 years old. It’s in my blood. It wasn’t until I found my passion for paper craft that I really started to focus on honing my skills. I have learned the most just by “doing”. I always have a pretty clear idea of what it is that I want to achieve and so I keep working at it until I get it. Sometimes it comes quite naturally to me, other times I’ll be surrounded by bits of paper and glue and floral wire for hours trying to figure out just one tricky petal. Every so often I’ll get bitten by a new craft bug – watercolor has been my “new” craft this year. I’ve spent time playing, trying things out, reading books and watching YouTube videos to find my own style – it’s such good fun. I think it’s good to approach anything new with an open mind and a willingness to fail a few times before you see some success.

How do you manage your family, company, blog and a life?!

I’m fortunate that my daughter is grown up and so I have the time to dedicate to my work.

We quiz papercrafting queen Lia Griffith on her gorgeous creations!

What is your earliest papercrafting memory?
When I was six years old, I made two dolls from tissue paper – I still have them today! Paper and cardboard are inexpensive craft materials, so I was always making things like toy cars and dolls.

How did you develop your paper passion?
My website grew out of a love for all things handcrafted, particularly paper flowers. When I discovered the Cricut Explore in 2014, my crafting capabilities changed beyond measure. Suddenly a paper bouquet that would have taken a week to cut by hand could be made in just a couple of hours! We now use a cutting machine for lots of our DIY projects.

What do you enjoy most about working with paper?
I love teaching people how to turn an inexpensive piece of flat paper into a unique work of art. The versatility of it will never cease to amaze me.

Which project are you most proud of, and why?
I still love my crepe paper topiary plant. It took some time to design and make, which I found very calming. And it stands the test of time, it’s a real classic.

What’s the secret behind a successful die-cutting project?
Demystifying the software is the first step. Once you understand how to navigate, creativity takes the lead. Second, understanding the machine and the material that you are working with really helps. I also encourage people to be patient with themselves. Don’t expect perfect results straight away and allow yourself to make some mistakes – that’s the best way to learn!

What Christmas projects are you planning?
Last year, Cricut launched the first machine to cut fabric, leather and wood as well as paper. This will allow us to make some really unique ornaments and decorations this year.

Which are your top festive trends for this year?
We’re looking at using untraditional jewel tones and matte metallics to create holiday projects that can take you right through winter. Paper village scenes and winter deer motifs are going to take the place of sleigh bells and snowmen!

What do you look forward to at Christmas?
Cooking, baking, being with family… but I always get most excited about decorating the tree! It’s something I take great pride in because all my decorations are handmade. As I always say, when it comes to creativity, more is more!

What are your top festive papercrafting tips?
Using a cutting machine definitely saves time if you’re making lots of cards and decorations. If not, I’d suggest sticking to one focal piece, such as a paper floral table decoration, or a gorgeous felt wreath for the front door. Try to go with designs that’ll last the entire season – think winter florals and jewel tones, rather than bright reds and Father Christmas!

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Remember to stay in the heart of the why. I constantly ask myself, ‘Why did I create this business?’ When things get clouded or challenging, this question keeps me grounded and focused.
