My Resume

Styles and Techniques
My scrap booking style varies depending on a variety of things, mostly on the product I'm using. My inspirations are derived from a variety of people, places and things, which may or may not include, flea markets, vintage homes, museums, my favorite scrappers, photos, kids and family...life in general. I let products influence my style along with new trends and techniques. For me it’s the variety that keeps it interesting and may even dictate a new style. My signature style almost always includes circles, stitching and 3-d elements with a shabby chic look. I love the romantic look of flourishes, crystals, flowers and stamping, stenciling and mixed media. I scrap mostly 12x12 LOs and strive for a variety of textures in each one. I use patterned paper for making my own embellishments and lean towards lots of layering. I love altering projects, making and giving my own handmade cards.

Objective:
I am seeking a position as a creative designer for product manufacturer's. I would also welcome the opportunity to work with industry magazines on special projects or requests.

My Scrap booking Goals
My scrap booking goals are to document my family's life and to leave a legacy for my grandchildren.
I love being involved in as many scrap booking communities as possible. I find energy and self satisfaction in design team work and inspiring others as well as being inspired by others.
