My love for paper crafting is at the core of my desire to design scrapbook pages, cards and projects. This passion, along with my creativity and enthusiasm pushes me to learn new techniques and apply them to my work. My goal is to inspire others through my work with design teams and freelance opportunities. I am flexible, driven and professional. I work well under time constraints and as part of a team. Most importantly, I am constantly challenging myself and truly love what I do!

Styles & Techniques:
My style has been described as 'bold', 'fun', 'glitzy' 'a bit shabby' and 'detailed'. I pay close attention to the design elements on my pages. While the photos are the main focus of my layouts, I enjoy highlighting products and telling a story though my work. I enjoy using a variety of techniques including sewing, stamping and using computer software as I create scrapbook pages, cards, mini-albums and altered items. Fashion and home accent trends definitely influence my work and I find inspiration in ads, catalogs and clothing.
