layout

I love scrapping digitally but I also need to feel and touch papers, paint and string on a regular basis. If you are familiar with my designs I am sure you’ve noticed that I regularly add crocheted items to my products. Crochet is a big passion of mine and in the layout you see one of latest critters.

started

I have always been very creative. Even as a child I would make crochet cups and saucers for my dolls (something my grandmother taught me), I drew and I painted, knitted, etcetera.
I started paper scrapping in 2004 whilst trying to come to terms with the death of our first dog Kenzo, and I fell head over heels in love with this hobby because it gave me the opportunity to put all my creative quirks into it. I’ve put handmade knitted and crocheted items on layouts. I’ve machine stitched, hand stitched and painted on layouts. You name it and I probably did it.
In March 2009 I officially turned digital and although I still have an urge to feel paper or fabric from time to time I have to say I very much enjoy this clutter free variation of scrapping. It brought me a whole new field of techniques to discover and I have learned so much since!
In October 2009 the team from Zig Zag Scrap gave me the opportunity to even further broaden my creative horizon, this time as a designer and I discovered that I love to create kits! Then sadly Zig Zag Scrap closed in October 2012. I learned however that when some doors close new ones open. Another dream came true when I found myself a new home at the Lilypad and I find myself working side by side with designers that I have admired since my early digiscrapping days in 2009.

inspired

I find my inspiration in the world around me. Anything I come in contact with can trigger something in my mind that end up in a kit: from a blog or a website, Pinterest most definitely, places I visit, an advertisement in the mail, the wrapping of a candy bar, a conversation I pick up while waiting in line at the grocery store, a layout I spot in the galleries, at Scrap Stacks or a song on the radio.

tools

Computer: An i5 2500k processor 8GB ram with 4 terabytes of storage space. I have a 24 inch DELL monitor.

Program: My OS is running on a 128 GB SSD windows 7/64-bit and for making pages and designing I use: Photoshop and Illustrator CS 5 and
Artrage Studio Pro.


Camera: Our camera is a Nikon D80.

Anything Else: Since October 2013 I am the proud owner of a Wacom Cintiq 13HD LCD tablet that I love in spades and then some!

favorite

At the moment one of my very favorite products are my heART elements, charms and papers.
I just love the colors and the versatility of them. They are perfect for papers about crafting and any artistic endeavor but can just as easily be used for a school page or a lovey dovey one.

popular

One of my most popular products are these stitches. I use stitches on just about all of my pages because I love how they add that realistic touch to a layout and I guess I am not the only one!
