Come Meet Erica Hettwer! HOTP’s Newest Designer!

Welcome, Erica Hettwer, the newest member of our PW/HOTP Family!  I had a moment to sit and chat with Erica, once she settled in.

Erica Hettwer - Craft Project Designer

We are delighted that Erica’s is part of our family and I love her energy and creative spirit. It’s always exciting to see the “talents” of our designers, and Erica comes from a long history of crafting. Take a moment to find out a bit more about Erica.

 A little about Erica –

I was born and raised here in Canby, Oregon and so working here is quite literally a dream come true. I’ve been married for almost eight years now to my tall, dark and goofy husband, Andrew. We’ve got two kiddos. Mickey is six and a half and Audrey’s just about to turn four. We live on a couple acres just south of town and have a dog, cat, goat and a cow! I’m hoping to add some chickens to the mix in a few years.

Family

Kids

I started crafting at young age as I come from a long line of quilters. My mom taught me how to cross-stitch in the 4th grade and my granny taught me how to crochet about the same time.

I’ve been on scrapbooking design teams and have been lucky enough to have some cards published in magazines like Paper Crafts and Scrapbook Trends. I’m really excited about getting my first layout in the Sept/Oct issue of Creating Keepsakes!

What exactly will you working on?

I’m a Project Designer here at Hot Off The Press and I love it! I get to create cards and scrapbook pages all day. I’m also starting to do product videos so if you hear me sounding a little nervous during some of them, its because I’m so new!  I also work mostly from home so I can still be with my kids and that is the very best part of this job.

What inspires your creativity?   

I love challenges. My favorite part of this job is getting pretty strict guidelines, “use this and make this” and then finding a creative and fun way to make that work. Something about that just gets my creative juices flowing. Another way I get inspired is by cleaning my craft room. Just seeing all the fun stuff I have gives me ideas and then off I go! Of course, my room never really gets cleaned though. ;-)

Favorite tool you love to work with:    

My favorite everyday tool is the Tonic Paper Trimmer. It cuts so straight and the size markings are nice and easy to see. I also love HOTP stamps. They give such a clean impression and have some great designs!

Favorite “tricks” when creating?

One of my favorite tricks is fussy cutting. I love either cutting out images from my papers to use as embellishments or cutting along the edge of a pattern to create my own custom border!

Have you found something you can’t like without, in other words, a favorite product?

I’m crazy about the new Happy Days line. The colors are just amazing and my One Little Word for this year is Happy! I also adore all of the crepe ribbons in our ribbon packs. They have a casual elegance that I can’t get enough of.

 Me

Thanks Erica for taking some time and letting us into your world.  As you walk down the halls here at HOTP, you can hear Erica’s delightful giggles. Not that she’s messing around, ;-) she just brings her attitude of sunshine!

Again, Erica, welcome to Paper Wishes & HOTP – we are excited you are here!

Thanks for reading my little blog!

~ Cristina
