About Shell Carman

Shell CarmanShell Carman lives in regional Victoria, Australia. She’s been married to her high school sweetheart Craig for 9 years. She stays busy with her 3 kidlets Hunter, Kayla and Evie. She and her husband own and run our own business, which keeps them busy, in addition to running the mom-taxi for her kids and their activities.
When it comes to adhesives, Shell is addicted to Dodz™, especially 3D Dodz™. “They are fabulous for adhering flowers, did I mention I was also addicted to flowers??!!” She considers herself a klutz and doesn’t eat or drink while she crafts, “it's just asking for trouble if I bring any food or drink near my scrap area!!”
Shell prefers to make scrapbook pages, but will whip up a few cards for family and friends. She finds time to craft once her kids go to bed. “I scrap downstairs and watch TV on the weekends, and scrap upstairs during the week with no TV or music.”
Shell is on a few Design Teams for manufacturers, a popular Australian magazine, an online store, and a challenge blog. She teaches monthly classes for her LSS too! It's Another Scrappy Day on Shell's blog!
