Digital scrapbooking

Digital creative team unveiled!

November 3, 2009

It’s finally time and we could NOT be more excited…our digital creative team is finally being announced!

After careful perusal of everything we received (and there were some doozies, believe us…we’re still drooling over some), we are thrilled to introduce our new digital creative team and show you some of the work they submitted for our consideration.

Thank you all so much for your submissions and your lovely comments about our digital collections – we’d love for you to keep showing us your amazing work. We would be lost without your support and it’s because of every single one of you that Kaisercraft has become the brand that it is, so thank you…we are very grateful.

And now, to introduce our digital team (photos of each member to come later in the week):

Kathleen Summers

As well as spending time with her husband and three children, Kathleen is a dedicated digital scrapper who has been published in magazines ranging from Creating Keepsakes to Memory Makers. The former tax accountant says a girlfriend introduced her to scrapbooking in late 2001 and she hasn’t stopped since, spending much of her time in her scrap space creating amazing digital layouts.  Kathleen draws much of her inspiration from photos of her children, Holly, Drew and Jaimee, and lives in northern California.

Carole House

A kindergarten teacher who lives in Indiana, Carole is a mother of one and a loving aunt of two. She has worked on several creative teams and enjoys creating quick pages (which regular readers of our blog would know!). Carole enjoys working with both boys’ and girls’ collections and says her daughter, Kimberlee, is her favourite subject to scrap. She is an active member of our blog and says she gets much of her scrapping done when Kimberlee is in bed.

Katharyn Brine

This former journalist and mother of three says she’s long been a fan of Kaisercraft products and scraps every day without fail. From winning first prizes at local photography shows to being published in several Australian magazines, she says she uses scrapbooking to inspire a story she has to tell or a memory she wants to retain. Katharyn, of Canberra, Australia, says she is also proud to support an Australian brand and describes her style as “keeping it simple”.

Candice McLean

Bringing images to life is the main inspiration for Candice’s scrapping career – she began in 2007 after obtaining a degree in graphic design and has previously designed products for a major scrapbooking brand. A full-time mother of four and wife to a US Marine, she says she has “a lot to scrapbook” and her passions are design, photography and scrapbooking. Candice is new to digital scrapbooking but this Californian is confident with Photoshop and has a background in typography and painting.

Sandra van der Geest

If you recognise this name, it’s because Sandra is a mad keen blog-hopper after starting her own blog in March. This Dutch mother of three admits to being “completely addicted” to scrapbooking and taught herself to use Photoshop Elements after watching a tutorial. She says her scrapping style is influenced by the photos she uses but she always enjoys working with bright colors and scrapping “a little bit freestyle”. Sandra hopes to inspire others to try digi scrapping with different techniques and appealing layouts.

Kerryn Leworthy

Describing her digital scrapping style as simple, modern, fun and photo-oriented, this married mother of four children lives scrapbooking! As well as working part-time in a Brisbane scrabooking store and being published in Australian and US magazines, Kerryn enjoys both digi and traditional scrapping using multiple patterned papers and combining patterns and styles. She says she is a big fan of Kaisercraft’s digital products, which allow her to combine her love of scrapping and recording her family’s life.

Brittney Tinkey

Brittney is never short of a subject to scrap – she and her two children travel the world according to her husband’s Army commitments. She records all of the family’s travels and says she can find inspiration in anything from her smiling son and daughter to great scenery. Describing herself as “tryscraptual” because she’ll try anything once, Brittney commonly produces eclectic layouts that always bring happiness.

Donna Espiritu

Donna currently lives in Manila in the Philippines but will soon be moving to Saudi Arabia to be with her husband, who she hasn’t seen for more than three years. Her projects vary depending on her mood but she says she likes to use blending modes, layers and clustering in her digital work even in her most simplistic layouts. Donna says she loves our digital ranges and would like to explore new horizons with digital scrapping – and take us along for the ride!

Chrissy Sneddon

Despite only having started digital scrapping a year ago, Chrissy says she feels much more adventurous than she ever was with traditional scrapping even though she still misses working with the bling. Chrissy, who lives in Scotland with her husband and three-year-old daughter, finds it hard to define her style but says she loves using layers of paper and brushes and enjoys working with girly collections.

Leah Farquharson

Creativity feeds the soul, according to Leah, who is married with two sons and works part-time in her local scrapbooking store. She says she enjoys teaching scrapbooking, papercrafting and Photoshop classes and designs digital kits and products for a website. Leah is experienced in creating tutorials and hosting challenges and crops both online and in real life, and her published projects include digital and hybrid projects. She says her digital style tends toward the “clean and graphic look”.

Leanne Love

All it took for Leanne to become hooked on scrapbooking was a stroll past a store’s window display of pretty papers – she says she hasn’t stopped since then but started digi scrapping seven months ago and throroughly loves it. She can be inspired by anything from home magazines and advertising to scenery and her children, and her scrapping style is dictated by the photos and products she uses, as well as her mood. Leanne says she is willing to try anything and has been published in several magazines.
