My Resume



Objective:

I would like to share with others ways in which they can create simple and beautiful layouts with just the right photos, design and embellishments. While I'm in the process of doing do, I hope to inspire others to use their own handwriting to share their stories straight from their hearts onto paper!


Background:

I am a wife and a mom of a 7 year old boy. I live with my son, husband, Pete, 2 kitties (Jessica and Toby) and Potbelly pig named Hamlet. Currently, I work for a credit union, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. When I'm not working, I am at home playing with my son and at night, when he's asleep, I scrap! I'd like to say I am more of a simple/journalist scrapper, but I tend to do a variety of different things. I love creating layouts which includes stamping and mixed media, mini albums, pocket pages and even planners.

I began scrapbooking in January 2002, but I didn't really get serious about the hoppy or discover the online communities until August 2006. I remember when my mom asked me to go to a Creative Memories party with her. I laughed at her, telling her no way am I going to sit at a table of older people and scrap. I was young and stupid. LOL. I told her I was not creative enough... But by the time I left that party, I had my first album, cardstock in several colors, pens, trimmer, scissors, stickers and several triangle cardstock shapes! LOL. Those were the days! Little did I know how addicting scrapbooking can be. I totally love this hobby. It makes me happy to create projects for my family members and it's my therapy!


What makes me an asset on a design team?

I am dependable, reliable, and I can work under a tight deadline. I like to work ahead of schedule and I usually have my assignments completed a few weeks early. Scrap members can expect to see different styles and designs from me with instructions on how to use new techniques on their layouts. Although I am a simple scrap-booker, my layouts are clean, simple, but attractive. I take great pride in my work therefore, I produce quality projects. I enjoy telling a story with the majority of my layouts.
