Learn more about Keren:
Keren is a papercrafter, stamper, scrapbooker and ‘try-anything once kind of crafter. Her favourite mediums are paper and fabric. She describes her style as clean and graphic. Her favourite technique is stamping – hands down. Keren is a mum of 5 living in Liverpool, UK with her hubby. If not crafting, she’s usually found baking!!!
Keren answered a few questions for us:
How long have you been papercrafting:
For about 9 years. I started with a couple of peel offs and cardstock to make some basic invites. I thought it was an amazing thing to create! I progressed to trying to do heat embossing, using my toaster as the heat source (not recommended!!) and my love of papercrafting and stamping began!
Do you have any papercrafting goals or things to accomplish?:
I don’t have any specific goals – to be honest. I’m amazed that I’m on this design team; something I never would have imagined a couple of years ago. Ultimately I guess I’d love to keep learning and developing – oh and actually get photographs off my computer and onto some more scrapbook pages!
Do you have any tips for fellow members that may help jump start their creativity:
First, I’d say just look around you. Sometimes its a color scheme in a garden, or a magazine advertisement that I find inspires a card or scrapbooking layout. Even food packaging can be a source of inspiration . When you search for design and beauty – you’ll find it in surprising places. I’d also say to try a brand new color or style. Copy someone else’s project that inspires you and before long you’ll find your creativity is recharged!
