Hi I'm Karen and I live in Suffolk, with my husband, two teenage daughters and Bazzil our dog, who all provide a constant supply of inspiration and photo opportunities.
I’ve always been busy with some sort of crafty activities or another but when I discovered scrapbooking in 2006, thanks to a good friend of mine, I took to it straight away. I joined the monthly Papermaze crop in Otley Village and learnt a lot from Vanessa, who always produces amazing class kits.
I nearly always scrap in A4 size, or rather the American 8.5”x11” size to be exact, and really love to use sketches as a starting point. I generally have to adapt 12x12 sketches to suit, but that all adds to the fun.
I like to make my supplies work hard for me and to that end I rarely (if ever) buy ready made embellishments, but instead create my own. Of course, if they arrive with a kit, I will use them!
I am lucky enough to be part of The Scrapbook Magazine Design team, and am totally delighted to have been invited to join Scrapology.
