My name is Karola Witczak. I am an absolutely addicted scrapbooking Mommy to Rose and wife to Marcin. We live in Poland/Europe, near the border with Germany. I'm a pretty crazy woman, who is dedicated to my scrapbooking passion almost every day, for a few years now. I am constantly trying to develop my passion - in different ways and stepping on different paths - from digital scrapbooking 6 years ago, to an intensive exploration of the intricacies of traditional scrapbooking, constant learning and teaching others as a scrapbooking instructor. Currently I am working as a freelance designer for a large group of scrapbooking companies, shops, projects, challenge blogs and I'm proud ambassador of many top brands and initiatives in my country of Poland and abroad like a Pink Paislee, Melissa Frances, Glitz Design and others... Sometimes I design products for scrapbooking - it gives me lots of joy and satisfaction. I am proud and honored to being Creative Director and Product Designer in The ScrapCake company, so it's my full time job which I make at home. In everyday life I create a LO's, cards, albums, and other things not directly related to scrapbooking - such as notebooks, home decors.
It is hard to define my style, mostly my friends call it "Karola's style," and often hear that this is a soft, romantic, feminine, eclectic. I love shabby chic but with something modern. In most of my work you can usually see portraits of my daughter - I am absolutely in love with her face, and such pictures usually go to my Lo's and albums. Definitely I like all feminine, romantic themes, delicate, soft colors, I'm also dependent on the sewing machine, especially when I make cards. I love to add new things to my projects, but usually I have a big inspirations from patterned papers, flowers and interesting color palettes - I believe when I have a piece of paper I can create anything! Besides scrapbooking I love to cook, read (for the books I definitely spent much more money than for scrapbooking!), I'm a geek about thrillers and horrors in the books and films. I'm also a rock girl, but I love jazz and bossanova too, I love live music, coffee, and I am dependent on buying jeans and sneakers.
My name is Jennifer Snyder. I live in Rochester, NY with my husband and my two sons. I've been scrapping for several years but really started working on technique and detail within the last two years. I am a gal who loves the whole tangible aspect of our beloved craft, from the pretty papers to hoarding ribbons and trims. My Husband , of only a few short, sweet years has been a great support for my scrapping passion. He never says anything when the boxes arrive in the mail, or when I come through the door with a shopping bag. He does roll his eyes though. I have found scrapping to be a hobby that can keep your mind active, youthful and refreshed.
Notice I did not use the word sane in that last sentence? That’s because my family believes I have a split personality as I also scrap under my cat’s name, Escape Kitty. Escape Kitty is a scrapping Diva in her own right as she often hip checks me out of the way for the scrapping supplies and design spotlight. She believes our house is NOT big enough for the both of us so she volunteers to leave (escape) at every available opportunity. Her antics are documented via scrap projects. Through the magic of photoshop, I find Kitty can and does show up almost anywhere.
I am also “all about the story”. I love to write about the “why” of a page. I love to explain my photo choice, my emotional tie to the situation conveyed in the page, or simply just to blather on…like I am doing just now.
Thanks Bery71Bleu for this honor. I am touched.
