Meet Feature Designer....KittenScraps!

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!
