My Resume

I am currently seeking the opportunity to design papercrafts for design teams and/or manufacturers, so that I can share and inspire others with my work.  When I first started scrapping, it was all about leaving a legacy for my family, but there's also a part now that has shaped into a part of my ME time.  The creative side of me which I crave.  If I am on a design team and/or designing for a manufacturer, I will always have the latest and greatest product.  It's also the old addage...the more you do it, the better you are at it!:)

Educational Experience/Skills:
I have a BS Degree in Elementary Education.  I was involved in a Direct Sales Rubberstamping Business for 10 years where I taught classes, held clubs and marketed my business.  I am always learning and so passionate about papercrafting and scrapbooking.

I tend to change my style based on what kinds of papers I am using, but feel that my pages have some sort of artsy flair  usually. My pages always have ink, paint or glimmermist on them.  I always scrapbook 12X12 pages.  Besides scrapbooking, you will see that I enjoy making 3D items and love making cards.  My card style has developed more into a cutesie, clean and layered style.

Another view...(and maybe a better pic)
You can't see on either picture that I stamped in pebble snowflakes on the base of the card.:(

Here was the Muse Card by Therese Calvird.  

I got some mojo last night (at least, I think).  So, I'll be sharing a few more this week!
And hopefully my photos will be better!
