Meet the Artist: Virginia Tillery

Meet Virginia Tillery of Blackflipflops Designs. Virginia creates home decor & stationary items with a papercrafts flair.

Virginia is a designer for several scrapbooking companies: Tim Holtz, The Girls' Paperie, Lily Bee Designs, and NoelMignon. She has been featured on many blogs including Apartment Therapy and Dollar Store Crafts.

Keep your eyes open for this very talented artist. 
"I'm so excited about my very first magazine publication in Scrapbook Trends December/January issue!"

We asked the artists to fill out a madlib to learn a little more about them. Here are Virginia's answers....


1. Each morning as soon as you wake up the first thing you should do is grab your favorite green cup and fill it with some diet Dr. Pepper and sit down to peruse your favorite blogs.

2. While creating your masterpieces, you should listen to peace & quiet... or your favorite shows on Hulu (depending on your mood!).

3. To get your creative juices flowing try sitting on your front porch in the fall, reading a new book or listening to some music..

4. Make sure you take regular breaks to have a massive bubble bath or snuggle up in bed with a good book.

5. You will know you have succeeded when your creation invokes a sense of whimsy, comfort, & home...


You will not want to miss Virginia's booth at By Hand Boutique November 12th and 13th.



  1. I absolutely love every single thing Virginia makes without fail! Every. Single. One.

  2. Virginia has had a wonderful inspiration to me both as a friend and artist. Everything she does you see her heart in it. She's taught me that the real beauty in what we create starts there and branches out to our life and our connections with people. Her style and talent is indeed a gift from God and we are all blessed to be able to partake in it.

  3. Ok, you're creations are just amazing!

  4. Very nice! Can't wait to see more! :)
