Jillian's Story

Jillian Vance
With my mom and dad both owning businesses, I have always wanted my own.  So in January 2010, my mom purchased a Cricut machine for me to start my own Paper Crafting business at the age of 10 years old.
In 2011 I designed my own line of clear stamps!  
And now the rest is history!
A Jillian Vance Design was started by Jillian Vance in 2010 at the age of 10 years old.  A very creative young lady, she decided to start a card business and sell them at her mom’s salon.  Then after needing sentiments that she couldn’t find anywhere, she decided to fill the niche in the clear stamp market she felt was missing ~ “There are a lot of cute stamps out there, but it is nearly impossible to find sentiments for the inside of cards, especially Christian ones .”    So most of her sets have a reference to God who she loves so much.  
Check out the AJVD Blog: and her first blog:
In addition to designing cards, stamps and dies, Jillian , who is an honor student, loves to sing, play her Taylor Guitars, dance and perform in  local theater productions.  She lives at home with her parents and three beloved dogs, Angus, her Yorkie Poo, Izzy and Mo both Yorkies who were rescues and are perfect angels!

Update 2021
I am so grateful for all the virtual events we were able to take part in as well as some of the in person shows this past year and in 2020! It is so nice to get back out to meet and see you all! We are continuing to do virtual events as well as in person shows for 2022.
Besides shows for A Jillian Vance Design, I was also able to do some background extra work in the Film Industry.  In April, I went to Atlanta to appear in Cobra Kai on Netflix. I am in Season 4, Episodes 9 and 10.  In May I was cast in a Showtime Series called American Rust. It filmed in Pittsburgh, PA.  I was there for 10 days, quarantining for 5 and on set for 5.  In July, I was cast in a film Bones and All, starring Timothée Chalamet filmed in Cincinnati, Ohio. September took me to Cleveland for another movie filming as an extra, this movie stars Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig and is called White Noise! Both movies will debut in theaters November 2022.
These experiences I am so grateful for, I have made lifetime friends on all the sets! What a fun experience plus Film is my love. I also took a Film Class from New York University and gained my film certificate in March 2022.
 We support USA Manufacturers. My Stamps are manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio.
