My Resume

When I first started in scrapbooking, my goal was to be on an Online Store, Kit Club, and a Manufacturer Design Team. I have successfully completed all three of my goals.I even got to work on my dream manufacturer design team! For the last three years, I have focusing on working on the Creative Memories Design Team (digital and traditional) and my family. In those three years, I have realized two things; that I am grateful for all the opportunities I have been given and miss being a part of a kit club. I love the challenge of just working with things that come in a box and playing with the latest and greatest products.

My Styles and Techniques:

I am a traditional scrapper, but have recently been introduced to the digital side of scrapbooking. And I was pleasantly surprised. Actually, I love it! It is nice to know that when life gets a little crazy and I do not have much time, I can still create something beautiful. It is a nice change, but I will always be a traditional scrapper at heart.

When people ask me what my personal scrap style is, I often don't quite know how to answer that question. When I sit down to do a layout, I have an "anything goes" kind of attitude. My style constantly evolves and I don't tend to use the same patterned paper, embellishments, or techniques more than once on a page. I like the fact that all my layouts look different. And it is not unusual for me to spend hours and hours on one layout. Actually, it happens more often than not.
