About Me

My name is Cristine and I have been scrapbooking since around 2006, but have been doing it seriously since 2008.  I've always liked to do crafty things, but I never claimed to be any good at it.  (I am my own worst critic, but aren't we all?)  I started making my own cards and venturing into altered projects in 2010 and I am really enjoying it!  I spend enough money on paper and supplies...there's no way I'm buying a card ever again!  :)

When I first started scrapbooking, my layouts are very basic, if not boring.  Now, with the help of scraplifting, sketches and a little imagination, my pages are much more interesting.  I am by no means a pro, but I am having fun while I figure it all out.

On a personal level, I have been married to my husband since 2002 and we have two beautiful red head daughters, born in 2006 and 2009.  They all keep me on my toes and make this life worth living.  Plus, they give me A LOT to scrap about!

On a professional level, I was accepted to my very first Design Team in August of 2011.  I was proud to be on the very first DT for Authentique Paper and loved every minute of it.  There's nothing quite like the camaraderie of other crafty women who just "get" it, when it's very likely that our husbands or non-crafty friends don't.
