Where do you call home?
Northern Utah, right by the Great Salt Lake. I can see it through my kitchen window!
Tell us a little about your family…
My family includes 5 darling, amazing kids and my BFF, hubby. We love to go outside and camp, hike, 4 wheel, go boating and just be in the outdoors.
When did you join Sweet Shoppe Designs & what’s your favorite thing about being a member of the team?
I got to join Sweet Shoppe in January of 2016. It has felt like “home” from the moment I started. My favorite thing about being a member of this fantastical team is the way I feel supported and encouraged everyday. I feel a sense of family and I love that!
Where do you find inspiration for your pages?
What inspires me? Everything! Mostly outside while I am walking or running. But sometimes I will see colors while I am shopping, or even while I am lying in bed I will see colors and get ideas. My family also inspires me tons. I will take a picture and think, I have to make a kit to scrap that moment!
How long have you been designing?
I have been designing since 2008. I had my 2nd child and found digi scrapping as a way to scrap my memories. I then played around in PS making my own papers and such to give out.

Tell us a little bit about your design process…
Once an idea comes into my mind, I will start an idea board or list of items/colors and such I want in the kit. Then once in PS I choose colors, make papers, then my themed elements, then all the fillers, alpha and extra packs. Package it all up and get it ready for you!
What is something we may not know about you?
You may not know that I am also a professional cake decorator. I have my degree in Culinary Arts and my Bachelors in Business. I professionally decorated cakes for about 10 years. After my 3rd child, I was trying to do 2 jobs (Digital Scrapbook Design and Cake Decorating) from my home, while trying to raise my 3 kids. It became too much for me to handle. I hung up my culinary hat, and decided to focus on Digital Scrapbooking. I am SOOOO glad I did. I still make fun cakes for my family, but Digi is where my heart is!
I also was a guest on 4 episodes of mycraftchannel.com. You can watch them here:
