My real name is Nathalie and I design under the name KittenScraps. I was never interested in actually scrapping, I wanted to learn “how did they do that” in Photoshop. For awhile I had a blog on blogspot where I created papers and elements using actions and then did a few layouts of my own...and from there I was hooked. Due to work and kids however I got away from designing and then in 2013 I found I had the time again with the kids in college and work slowing down AND my partner buying me a new Mac for Christmas. I decided to jump in with both feet at this point, started my own blog again and away I went.
I’m often asked where I get my idea’s for my kits and layouts. Don’t laugh but I go to our local craft supply store and browse and not just at scrapbooking stuff. Sometimes I’ll see a vase, or flower arrangement or store display and I’ll snap a picture for future reference. I also like to create kits that I would use if given the time to scrap all of my personal photo’s. Lucky for me however I have a daughter who likes to scrap and can do a few layouts for me as well.
About me personally, I’m a geek, a nerd...whatever you want to call it. I love sci-fi and even dragged my bf to FanExpo to meet Patrick Stewart and have our picture taken together. Thankfully Darren is just as big of a geek as I am. I love Game of Thrones, Star Trek, Monty Python and I am hooked on Audio Books which I listen to while I design or on car trips. I have four kids of my own, and three step kids all between the ages of 27-20. I love to shop but I HATE paying full price for anything. I won’t buy it unless it is a bargain and I’m the queen of finding items at unbelievable prices. I knit, crochet, prefer the old fashioned fountain pens to ballpoints, love to read and am currently reading book 5 of Game of Thrones- I have a sweet tooth for dark chocolate and sour candy.
My goal for the rest of the year…more kits and more clip art!
