Name

I currently reside in northern Indiana, but I call Tampa, FL home. I have been with my husband 20 years this March and we have 4 beautiful children. My family is everything to me and they inspire my work continually.

layout

My children inspire me. They are our greatest accomplishment and though I don’t get to scrap often, so instead of trying to document every memory, I like to document who they are in that moment. To capture the essence of their individual beauty. This particular page, she looks so much like her dad and as it says, she’s a strong & determined individual.



DesignerLO

started

I got started in design 7 years ago when looking to learn Photoshop for another project. I accidentally stumbled upon digital scrapbooking and was hooked immediately. Within 6 months, I was designing.

inspired

My family first and foremost inspires me. Additionally I love looking at fabric and surface pattern design trends when thinking about the direction I want to go with a particular design idea.

tools

Computer: I design on an MSI Apache Gaming computer. I love it because it is able to support having Photoshop and Illustrator open together seamlessly.

Program: Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and Filter Forge.

Camera: Canon Rebel T5 with multiple lenses

Anything Else: I design on an Intuos Pro tablet, because I really love digitally painting.

tipstricks

The tip I always share is to get in the pictures! When you are gone, that is all that is left for your family and they won’t care what your hair looked like or what you weighed. I personally do not love having my photo taken, but I try to make sure I get into pictures with my family so we can all look back and see us all together.

favorite

I love this product because it’s dreamy and exactly how I feel about my love,

popular

This kit was out of my comfort zone, less sparkle and pink and more rugged and natural. It has been one of my best selling products since it’s creation.

Long Lost Alphas

I’ve been digi scrapping for more than ELEVEN years. That’s a lot of scrapping! And in those years, I have purchased or been given (you know, back when I was on 8-10 creative teams at a time!) THOUSANDS of kits. I’ve gone through many ages and stages with my scrapping, but there are still some kits and elements that I LOVE.

I keep a file on my computer called “Old Elements,” and within that folder, I have “alphas.” I’ve gotten rid of a lot of my old scrapping stuff, but I kept a bunch of elements from the good ‘ol days. I often forget they are there, but when I stumble upon them, I realize I still love most of them and they are STILL useful for my scrapping.


It’s fun to look through my stash and see how digi has changed—both in designs and in designers! Some of my favorite designers are still designing all these laters. Many, many have retired. Regardless, I have an awesome folder filled with awesome goodies.

Just check out these alphas. I haven’t used some of them in years, but I still love them! Most of these have appeared on DOZENS of my layouts (I have a tendency to use things over and over.)

I doubt many, if any, of these are still available. But maybe you have them hiding in your stash somewhere!

DESIGNERS “Back then,” designers didn’t always add their name to a file. If I made a mistake on any of these, please let me know and I am happy to fix it!)
