Our SBCH Spotlight – Design Team- Cristin
One day about four years ago I stumbled upon scrapbooking on day while browsing Ebay! I saw all sorts of ads, big and small, for scrapbooking supplies. I was immediately intrigued. After that I “Googled” scrapbooking and I was on my way!! My first few purchases came from Ebay but once I discovered online scrapbooking stores and message boards, I was hooked. I couldn’t believe the huge variety of products available and the amazing online communities. I have made so many wonderful new friends that I never would have the opportunity to meet if it wasn’t for this amazing hobby we have in common.
My style has changed so much since I first started a few short years ago. I was a VERY simple scrapbooker, afraid to use pattern paper and ink was a no no. Now I struggle with using cardstock and every page I do is covered with ink. Inking is definitely my favourite technique. I also love to use chipboard on most layouts, it is so versatile and can add so much to a layout or project.
There are so many talented scrapbookers that admire, Keisha Campell, Celine Navarro, Ali Edwards, Elsie Flanagan and Vicki Boutin , just to name a few. I love browsing online galleries and blogs for inspiration!
I am so thrilled and honoured to be a part of the Scrapbooker’s Clubhouse Design Team!
