Crafting is meant to be relaxing, inspiring, and a unique extension of your creativity
(We need to see your uniqueness shine, and you deserve to feel the joy your art brings!)

But, I know you... 
   - spend waaayyy too long online looking for inspiration instead of creating 
   - sometimes attempt your own original projects that just don't seem to hit the mark 
   - have maybe been at this for years, but feel like you're still not growing as an artist 
   - experience tons of frustration and self-doubt 
   - are overwhelmed with all the choices out there, but keep buying and buying 
   - have no idea what to do with all the STUFF you have!
This. Was. Me. Too.

BLOOM is a different approach. This isn't more of the same.

The BLOOM community is designed for greeting card and mixed media crafters seeking to GROW their art into a consistent practice that brings joy, self-confidence, and personal fulfillment.

With BLOOM, you will fill your Crafters Toolbox with resources that actually help. We explore practice skills & techniques, design principles, mindset shifts, technology assistance (can you say photo & video help?), and more! Will we craft? Uh, YAH! But we'll do sooooo much more!

You'll join an amazing, supportive community and discover renewed self-confidence, your personal style, and ways to share it - making your craft practice an enjoyable and fulfilling part of your life!

Let's bring your craft to a new, inspiring level!

Have we met? I'm Nicole!

As a card maker and mixed media artist for over 15 years, I've done and learned so much in this industry!

From hobby crafters and affiliate crafters, to sample and product designers, and even creative business owners, we all have a place here and bring our best when we learn and grow together.

I love every aspect of this paper and ink world, and what's more, I love sharing my knowledge and expertise with you.

Let's get crafty!

Inside this community you will find passionate paper crafters just like you! 

We. Are. Your. People. 

(And we are just as excited about paper, ink, stamps and techniques as you are!)

We're ready to go next level, and we want you to level up too! We celebrate successes and freely share our thoughts, our struggles, our questions, and support each other as we grow our crafting practice together.

Some of us seek to improve our hobby to proudly share our projects with those that mean the most to us. Others are working towards leveling up to explore business opportunities. But, we have at least one thing in common - we pour our heart and soul into everything we create.

We show up with honesty and compassion and celebrate our individuality through our unique crafty styles.

You are not alone, and you deserve to have it all.

Come find your crafty family here and BLOOM!

Frequently Asked Questions

No! BLOOM is a monthly membership, with new content added each week. 

We do not focus on crafting techniques in Bloom, per se. Rather,  we focus on strategies for long-term growth as a crafter.  A few examples of training that are covered would be finding and curating inspiration, developing a productive workflow, overcoming mindset obstacles, and design and color principles. We also do a live Q&A calls with Nicole and other guests, and have "unstuck" events where we help each other out in a group brainstorming session, as well as monthly inspiration prompts.

Crafting technique videos are provided for free on my social media channels, but are also published here, ad free, as an extra member perk.

After you join, you’ll receive a welcome email with your unique log in details. Members have immediate access to the member's area, including previous content, and enjoy new content delivered each Tuesday, and announced through a weekly email, as outlined in the calendar.

Each month’s premium content is added as a topic article inside the private membership portal and announced each week via email. Additional content that is provided free on YouTube and elsewhere is often added here too - ad free!
