Hi, my name is Kate and by day I work as a software enginner but in my free time I love taking photos and scrapbooking. I made my first scrapbook as a thank you gift for my sister to document an awesome trip I had when I went to visit her while she was living in Japan. We had so much fun, and I saw so many amazing things, I just wanted to capture all the memories. I did not know anything about the scrapbooking industry, I just had a desire to make something to document the trip. I got a spiral bound scrapbook at Michael’s with craft pages, a few stickers and then used pictures and text from magazines to sort of collage my pages together. It makes me smile every time I look at it. Since that time I found the world of scrapbooking and all the beautiful designers, products, YouTube videos and online classes. So much fun to capture the memories and make such pretty stuff. It goes great with coffee and chocolate, two of my other favorite things.
I called Florida home for most of my life but was relocated to Georgia 13 years ago. I live with my boyfriend Steve. We have been together for 13 years, engaged for 12 of them. I guess it is fair to say we are not too big on tradition.

This is the Layout I made and I will show you how I did it step by step:
Step 1: Started with the Pink Fresh Studio Ombre Wall patterned paper. I thought the subtle neutral pattern of the paper would really make the gorgeous colors on the iheartstudio May Floral and Butterfly printables stand out. The ombre section of the page had the perfect colors to coordinate with the printables. I cut out some of the May Floral and May Butterfly printables.
Step 2: Added some foam on the back of two of the May Floral printables to pop them off the page. I also added some iheartstudio Fall Leaves cutfile elements in white cardstock coming out from underneath the printables.
Step 3: Added one of the May Butterfiles on the top right of the page and used a Signo white gel pen to make butterfly trails across the paper.
Step 4: Added a few layers of vellum behind the photo and used a notebook edge punch to add some interest.
Step 5: Added a few chipboard elements from Crate Paper Wonder.
Step 6: Added the acetate ‘Hello’ from Pink Fresh Studio.
Step 7: Added a few wood block stickers from Pink Fresh Studio.
Step 8: Finished off the page with some Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers.
