Meet Melissa L.

BIO: I discovered digital scrapping in December 2006 and have been a serious addict ever since. I also love photography and capturing all the little moments in my two kiddo’s lives. I have been married to my college sweetheart for 13 years and we have two beautiful children: Camden is 6 and Rory is 3. They are most often the subject of my pages because I can’t seem to get enough of their sweet faces. If I’m not scrapping or chasing them around with a camera, you can probably find me reading a book or catching up on my reality TV obsession.

5 PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT: First and foremost – templates! I find myself using these more and more often as they become more intricate and available in so many different styles. The other products I use over and over are striped papers, buttons, stitches, and stamped alphas.

MY STYLE: I don’t know if I have a defined style, although I typically find myself using one photo with plenty of white/negative space. I envy those who can manage the beautiful clustered style, but I haven’t quite mastered it.

MY SCRAPPING IDOL(S): The two designers/scrappers that I’ve enjoyed the most through the years are Gina Miller and Janet Phillips. I love Gina’s pages because she never fails to surprise me with her creativity, and her style is so diverse. I admire Janet’s pages because the focus is always on the photo and journaling which are the the essential components of scrapping our memories.

WHY I AM EXCITED TO BE ON THE TEAM: I love TDD for the all the information it provides for those with limited time to browse, and I love creating pages for TDD because of the diversity and chance to work with so many different designers.
