Vera Yates – Prima Ribbonista {2011-12 Term}

Hi, I am Vera Yates. I was born and raised in Indonesia and now call Texas home. I am married to a wonderful guy who totally support my paper crafting addiction and we have 2 dogs that completed our small family. I've always enjoyed crafting, but I love paper crafting the most. I got into scrapbooking and stamping soon after I moved to the States and spent a few years teaching scrapbooking and card making classes. I am a paper addict and playing with pretty papers is my way of relaxing and unwind. 🙂 My craft style is definitely clean & cute. Besides crafting, I love traveling, reading, movies, volunteering, and good cappuccino. I am very excited to be part of May Arts and looking forward to share many project with everyone.


Some of Vera's favorite projects are shown below:
