How We Got Started

Southern Ridge Trading Co. has been around since 1990. I have had many creative endeavors, such as Commercial Embroidery, Ceramics, Collage, Water Color Painting, Acrylic Painting, Scrapbooking and Card Making. I am committed to explore new creative paths that inspire me.


I am extremely Grateful to be living my Passion!  I have been operating a 60 watt Co2 Epilog Laser Machine for over 12 years now, Designing and Creating, products for the Crafting Industry. 

I use 0.060 chipboard and 1/8" MDF wood for my die cuts, unless otherwise stated.  Common uses of our products are for Decorative Painting, Mixed Media Art, Scrapbooking, Card-making and Home Decor Projects.
