So here I am taking the first steps (or planting the first seeds, if you will) of a fresh adventure and journey and just like with any new venture I’m feeling SO very excited and a little apprehensive. But most of all I’m thrilled and grateful for this opportunity to grow and I can’t wait to share it all with you!
If you know me, you probably know that I’m completely out-of-my-gourd in love with scrapbooking. It all started many years ago when I was first drawn to explore my creativity and storytelling as a paper scrapper (which I’m sad to say I was never terribly good at, but oh how I loved it). Then in May 2008 I finally delved into digital scrapbooking. And I haven’t looked back since. I was smitten from the very first
click. The digital medium has given me the confidence to really explore
my own creativity in ways I hadn’t been able to with other crafty
projects. I love love LOVE capturing the everyday moments of my family
and sharing our stories through my scrapping.
Recently, I was encouraged by friends and loved ones to explore template design.
In some ways designing templates seemed like a new evolution for me and
my creativity. But ultimately, it comes down to this: if I can be a
part of, and encourage others to scrap their memories, share their
stories, or create their art in any small way…I would love that.
Because to me, the creation and the remembering–it’s one of the most
beautiful expressions of ourselves for those we love.
And so my goal is to create template designs that will help you do just that: plant your story, scrap your memories, write your love song to your loved ones, express your creativity. My hope is, through varied offerings — of both “cleaner” and more detailed designs and some that focus on storytelling, or playing with techniques — scrappers of every style will be encouraged and supported in their scrapping.
In just two days I will be debuting my template designs at an established digital scrapbooking shoppe. I can’t tell you *just* yet where that will be, but I can say that will be working along side some fabulously talented and sweet designers. Stay tuned here for lots of news, sneak peeks, information, giveaways, and an exclusive freebie in the coming days.
On Saturday 1 May everything will go live and the fun begins!
