Cut & Paste Guest Designer: Katrina Hunt

Guest Designer of the Week

I'm excited to introduce our Cut & Paste guest designer: Katrina Hunt!

Katrina Hunt
How did you get started scrapbooking?
Funny, I started digital to make a header for my blog. Then a friend introduced me to paper and I decided I was going to do a mini album for my first project. That was in late 2008 and I have been a paper scrapper ever since. I love the entire creative process!

What is your favorite American Crafts product?
There is not even a competition on this one, Thickers!! I have several containers of them, and one alone has over 150 packages! Yes, I do use them and not hoard them. I have a love of fonts and colors, so I think that is where the obsession comes from.
