Edmonton, Alberta Canada
Hi! My name is Jan Hobbins and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada with my husband Rob. My passion for art and all things creative has certainly rubbed off on our three children, who all have successful careers in design. I started scrapbooking about seven years ago, when I went to work for my sister, who had just bought a scrapbook store. I had no idea how much I would come to love my job and this hobby.
I’m not sure what I like to create the most, because I love it all! Whether it’s layouts, cards, tags, altering items or creating my own projects. I do have a slight obsession with fussy cutting and love creating lots of dimension with different textures and mediums. My Vagabond is my favorite tool and is used constantly on all my projects, so I hope I can inspire everyone! I am so honored and excited to be on the Sizzix design team.
- Sizzix Machines: Vagabond
- Sizzix Favorites: Tattered Pinecone, Tag-Bookplates, Tattered Florals
- Sizzix Wish List: The bigz dies, Vintage Typewriter, Tick-Tock
- Sizzix Tip: When cutting with the more intricate dies, such as the On the Edge Doily, apply a double sided adhesive sheet to the back of the paper(leave the outside backing on) before putting it through your Sizzix machine. This will make sure all the intricate edges will be glued down to your paper.
