Meet Karen

karenBIO: Above all else, I’m mother to Sam (7 years old) and Max (3 years old) and wife of 13 years to my high school sweetheart, Rob. I’m passionate about preserving memories for my children. I have never paper scrapped, but have always enjoyed writing and photography. My sister-in-law introduced me to digiscrapping in 2006, and I quickly discovered a creative outlet that helps me to capture my children’s stories. Both of my boys joined our family through the miracle of adoption, and I feel strongly about providing them with as many memories of their childhood years as I can.

5 PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT: Stitches, Shape templates, Fonts, Alphas, Buttons

MY STYLE: I suppose I would describe my style as a bit eclectic, mainly because I feel like I am always learning and like to try new techniques or styles that catch my eye in the galleries. Other than that, I think I tend to lean toward a simple style that emulates paper scrapping.

MY SCRAPPING IDOL(S): I have admired Melissa Lewis’ work since the day I began to scrap. I’m fortunate to know her, and she helped to encourage me as I was learning digiscrapping. I love her fresh, clean, playful style and the fact that she does such an amazing job of capturing the everyday moments of her family’s life.

WHY I AM EXCITED TO BE ON THE TEAM: I’m excited to be a part of The Daily Digi creative team for many reasons, but the biggest is to be part of a group that wants to help people tell their stories. Whether you’re just learning to scrap, or if you’ve been doing it for a long time, The Daily Digi has quickly found a way to provide regular inspiration to the digiscrapping community. I’m thrilled to be able to play some small role in that going forward.
