Hello! I'm Rebecca, Owner and Creator behind Ink.Paper.Crafts. I have been obsessed with all things paper, stamps and crafts since I started selling my cards to schoolmates on the yard in the 5th grade! I was instantly hooked when I was introduced to scrapbooking 23 years ago and have been a fan ever since. 3554 State Street was originally planned as a personal creative space during COVID-19 and but then I decided, why not? What’s the worst thing that could happen? And here we are today! I'm passionate about this hobby and love to share it with any one who is looking for an outlet or a way to express themselves. Cheers!
Meet Taylor! This team member has a special place in my heart because she is my eldest daughter. Taylor recently graduated from Auburn University-War Eagle! She will be applying to PA school this spring in hopes to work with a professional sports team one day. Taylor has many passions including sports, baking, hiking, cooking, teaching, and volunteering. Taylor has been a huge help behind the scenes making sure our store can run smoothly and efficiently. You will often see her helping customers or on the computer inputting stock to get it ready for you! Taylor lives in Los Angeles full time but thankfully for us, she drives up to Santa Barbara every week to lend a helping hand. We are so grateful for the time Taylor has spent here and she will surely be missed when it's time to move onto graduate school.
Meet Michelle! She is a second generation Santa Barbaran. Michelle has been involved in several arts and cultural institutions throughout her child and adulthood. While traditionally a landscape artist, Michelle loves to travel and try new foods. Michelle recently returned to Santa Barbara after earning her two masters degrees in Museum Studies and Arts Administration. She can be seen in our store working on project development and teaching classes.
Meet Cora! Cora is our resident expert in calligraphy, brush lettering, and art journaling. She's a mom to one toddler and two fluffy pups, and married to a UCSB grad student - Go Gauchos! She loves flowers, sunshine, and trying anything new & crafty, but her most favorite thing is exploring creativity with people and she can't want to craft with you all!
Meet Brandon! Brandon is Taylor’s long term boyfriend who also lives in Los Angeles. Brandon is a full time Mortgage Loan Originator for Investor Property Loan, a mortgage brokerage based in LA, but he comes up to Santa Barbara whenever he can to help with heavy lifting or to lend an extra pair of hands. When he is not working, he loves to play golf, hike, read, and dream about his future dogs. Brandon is an honorary member of our team and we are grateful for him!
