Resume

Objective


To be published in industry magazines, become part of a design team for a scrapbook product manufacturer and to create my own line of scrapbook products

Styles and Techniques

Most of the pages that I produce have a clean, graphic style. I've always been attracted to things that are uncluttered and very linear. This has transferred into my scrapbooking. But having said that, I'm not afraid to go out of my comfort zone to try something new if the project I'm working on calls for it.

I have a Masters in Educational Technology and my love of the computer has also contributed to my scrapbooking style. I use the computer to do most of my journaling and also to edit photos. I am a Microsoft Office Certified user with Master certification and love to use these programs to enhance my pages. While most of my pages are done with traditional paper and products, I have ventured into the realm of digital scrapbooking and love what can be produced on a computer generated layout.
