Hi! I was born in Minnesota, but grew up in Oregon.
I love the outdoors! Hikes, running, walking, water skiing, horseback riding, biking, pretty much anything that gets me out and in nature. I also love to create. My mother is a water color artist, and she raised me looking at the beauty of shapes and colors in everything. So when I went to college I wanted to study art.
I became a Culinary Artist and have been a professional cake decorator for about 11 years now. During that time I also got married to my college sweetheart and had 4 amazing babes.
After I started Digital Scrapbook Designing in 2008, I started to step away from cake decorating. I still do it, but my focus and love has become Digital Scrapbooking.



I got to take my only daughter to Disneyland in 2012. It was the BEST trip and of course I wanted to see the Princesses. (Yes, I am a girly girl at heart.)
Ariel is one of my favorites and we got to see her right as she came out, so we didn’t have to stand in line! I got some shots of her talking and hugging my daughter.
This layout is made with one of my favorite Princess inspired collections. It is called Majestic Mermaid and it was perfect for these character photos. I am not an amazing scrapper, and I have fallen in love with the simplistic beauty of Pocket Scrapping. (Also known as Project Life.) I kept the photos large so they were the focus, and used just a small cluster to bring your eye to the middle of the layout. I love how it turned out.

I have always been drawn to art and creating. So when I got into Digital Scrapbooking in 2007, it wasn’t long after that I started to learn how to create my own papers and elements. I learned from watching online tutorials, and lots of trial and error.
I had my second child and wanted a way to capture our memories without making a mess. I never was into paper scrapping, but fell in love with digital from the start.


My family is my inspiration while designing. I see the joy and life in what we do and how we live and I try and use that in my creations. Colors, feelings, and natural beauty are also a huge inspiration. When I am stuck, or don’t feel inspired, I go and do something outside and I am instantly inspired to create.


Computer: I have a Dell XPS 8300. With 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. OS is Microsoft Windows 7. I have a 24 inch monitor.

Program: I have CS5 and Adobe Illustrator.

Camera: Canon t2i.

Anything Else: Wacom 12 inch touch tablet. LOVE IT!


A little burn or soft light overlay can add a bit of “edge” to an element or paper. If your element or layout seems too flat, try adding a burn style to the edges to bring out that realistic look.


This kit reminds me of being back in the forests of Oregon. The sweet earthy smells, pine and dirt. I also love Snow White and this kit was inspired by her.



I have a lot of requests for my “boyish” kits. This one is fun because of the fossils and bright earthy colors. I love the
