Introducing guest designer Leah Fung!

Projects for Kits and Pieces.jpg

Leah worked with our Happy Day kit this month. We love what she did with it! She also answered a few questions about herself so we could get to know you better: 

How did you get started scrapping?
I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago soon after my first son was born. I didn't even own a camera at the time. I had a disposable camera which someone gave to me. A neighbor of mine was a Creative Memories consultant and she convinced me to try scrapbooking. I never really considered myself artistic so I was hesitant to try it, but I immediately fell in love with this hobby.

My scrapping style tends to be detailed and dimensional… it’s just the way I scrap.  Despite my “core” style, I absolutely LOVE the look of clean, graphic pages (though I can’t create one to save my life!).  One day my dear friend, Sue Thomas (who happens to have one of those amazing graphic styles), and I were talking about how different our styles are and how differently we think.  What we discovered, bottom line, was that she thinks in LINES and I think in LAYERS.  Wow!  How cool!  How do you think about a page as you begin the design?  Are you a line thinker? Or a layer thinker? (continued)


We are thrilled to be able to welcome Kira McKee to the Kits & Pieces Team! Kira will be joining us as a DT member and will also be managing the message board. Kira has been a Kits & Pieces member from the beginning and a wonderful, friendly participant on our message board. Welcome, Kira!
