How did you get started scrapbooking? I have always kept photos and memorabilia throughout my life. In 1998, I started scrapbooking as we know it today. I created an album to document my wedding shower… 8.5 x 11, cardstock, shaped-scissors… I have honed my style a lot since then. Now I love to create projects with a graphic style and artsy influences.
What is your favorite American Crafts product? The American Crafts MiniMarks Rub On Transfer Books will always have a place in my heart. I have several styles in my stash.
