RESUME


INTRODUCTION

My name is Jess Gerstner, AKA JessCrafts, and I can be reached at hello@jesscrafts.com. I am an experienced papercrafting designer who has worked to create samples and tutorials for crafting companies and challenge blogs for the past eight years. I am always looking for opportunities to inspire others with new ways to use crafting products. I produce video tutorials on my YouTube channel that educate consumers about the use of products and techniques. I also design my own digital stamps branded as Jess Crafts Digitals.
