Kris, please tell us a bit about you.

Who
am I? I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, believer, chef, taxi,
super-mom I live with my husband, Larry in Small Town Arizona, Chino
Valley, a town in a valley in the mountains of northern Arizona. We
both went to high school here and were high school sweethearts. We
moved back when our oldest was just a baby to raise our children here.
Now, we have 5 AMAZING children (Shelby – 11, Griffen -7, Elwyn – 5,
Berlyn – 3 and Rowan – 2). I homeschool my children, work from home for
both my digi-designs and as a freelance in advertising and website
design and am a full-time college student. I have worked in
Scrapbooking direct sales, been published, worked for several
scrapbooking product manufacturers but, digital is my true calling. We
go to an AMAZING church, have FANTASTIC family and friends and are
truly blessed in our lives.

What are some of the life lessons that scrapbooking has taught you?

You
can never make a mistake in scrapbooking, whether it is paper or
digital. You can always cover it up with something else. Mistakes
happen in both scrapbooking and in everyday life so, I have learned
dont sweat the small stuff.

When did you start digital scrapbooking, designing and what made you get into it?

I have worked in advertising and website design since 1998 when my
oldest daughter was born. At that time, I really started paper
scrapbooking her baby pictures. I worked as a team captain for a direct
sales company for several years and when that company closed, I joined
with another one who was just stepping into the whole digital scene.
After that second company closed down, I starting designing my own line
of digital scrapbooking. It all made perfect sense since I already was
heavily involved in digital elements for work and God opened my door
again by closing companies. So, I have been digital designing for just
over a year now.

What inspires you to create your designs?
God
has blessed us with so many topics and so much beauty in His world. I
am surrounded by so many AMAZING colors in my life and 5 fantastic
children where topics run like a river from them. I think just those
colors and items that are important to me and my family is where I see
each new kit.

There is a saying that I always tell my
children He wants you to paint, He wants you to sing, He wants you to
soar (I have that written up on my paper scrapping classroom wall). I
have been telling my kids that for years. I honor God by doing just
that.

Can you share your favorite scrapbooking or design tip with our Faith Sisters?

YOU
CAN DO IT! I have learned SO MANY techniques just by playing with
different programs, using different products and mixing and matching.
Be 100% yourself, and create layouts that fit you, not what others
expect to see. With digital, you can work on layouts for 5 minutes or 5
hours and never have to worry about the kitchen table not being cleared
off.

How do you find the time to do so many wonderful designs?

I am an EXTREMELY fast designer. I jot down my thoughts in my sketch
book colors, thoughts on the specific kits and elements and I
reference this book as I design. I am currently taking drawing for my
art degree as well, so I am learning better techniques to make my
designs streamline even faster. I work at all different hours, around
work, kids and school.

What is your favorite scripture verse?

My favorite script – Genesis 9:13I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

We are surrounded my beauty that God has blessed us with. The rainbow
is one of Gods most colorful and beautiful pieces of art. I am in awe
every time that I see one in the sky.
