Meet Jessica Witty

She's stylish, adorable and creates cards that Hallmark should envy but thankfully, she's agreed to share her designs with Emma's Paperie!

Jessica is a southern girl, born in Oklahoma and raised both there and in Texas. She still lives just a few minutes from her hometown near Dallas. Jessica graduated from Texas A&M University in 2001 and married her husband, Brian, that year as well. They have 2 sons – Eli, who is 3 ½ years old, and Zeke, who arrived on her birthday almost 4 months ago!

Jessica worked as a script editor for a radio ministry broadcast worldwide until this year. She is now staying at home with the boys and paper crafting in all the spare time that two small children leave her (ha!). A friend of Jessica’s introduced her to stamping 6 years ago… all of her stamped cards and gifts were beautiful and inspiring and made Jessica want to do it herself! “I never would have considered myself to be artistic in any way before that because I thought that to be artistic, one must be able to draw or paint… I can’t do either!” Jessica says. She was immediately drawn to stamping and paper crafting because it’s something everyone can do. Stamping and creating cards are really her first love and what she enjoys creating the most. Jessica is drawn to designs that are on the clean, simple, and graphic side.

You can see her work in publications such as Paper Crafts, CARDS, Crafts n Things, etc. She is currently a designer for Paper Salon. If Jessica is not crafting or hanging with the family, she is probably working with their church youth group, junking or antiquing (really… aren’t they the same thing?), beating her friends at Texas Hold ‘Em, or running (she is hoping to complete another half marathon this year! – GO Jessica!).

gig em! Beautiful card that holds your attention as you admire every detail. More beautiful in that it is inspired by a fellow Texan.
