I've been scrapping since 1997, but really I started at around 7 years old,
when I used to make scrapbooks from items I clipped from newspapers and
magazines. I've always been happiest when creating something - sewing,
quilting, card making, decoupage just to name a few of the crafts I've
I love having the opportunity to design scrapbooking products... I am a
total product junkie, so it's awesome to think of something that doesn't
exist and create it. I love that others are inspired to use the products
I've designed and I get a real rush from seeing my ideas come to life.
I'm very much a free spirit when it comes to style, I'm a big believer in
not stifling creativity with what "oughta be" and just doing what the muse
says and not stopping to question or doubt myself. So I often have pages
that vary from style to style.
My husband and I run buzz and Bloom together since Helene's (mum's)
retirement last year. Mark and I have been together for just over ten years.
We got married in 2007 and live at home with our beagle, Columbus. Most of
my layouts are about Mark, me & Columbus, with others about family, friends
and very often, my nephews!
