Learn More About Birgit

~BirgitKoopsenHi! My name is Birgit Koopsen. I’m married to Erik and mom of three beautiful kids. I live in a little village called Winsum in the north of the Netherlands.

I started scrapbooking officially when my youngest child was one year old in 2003 but actually I’ve been doing it since I was a teenager.  I always enjoyed photography and “pimped” my photo albums, just didn’t know there was a name for it and special products. I love how scrapbooking keeps all the beautiful memories of special events and everyday life alive.  Especially for my children! But I also love the creative outlet it gives me!

My favorite colors are lime green, turquoise, pink, orange and red in combination with black and white. I’m a patterned paper lover, but I also like to create my own background papers and combine the two. My style goes from clean and geometric to “busy” layouts with lots of details and colors. I love to get my hands dirty and play with paints and inks and use non-scrapbooking products! In the last few years I fell in love with mixed media and art journaling and I very much enjoy creating “off-the-page” projects like canvasses and Art Journal style mini albums.

In the last 10 years scrapbooking slowly turned into a job. I teach and demonstrate in my own studio at home as well as in scrapbook stores and at (international) scrapbook events. Also I do freelance work for magazines. I was given the privilege to work on a couple of wonderful DT’s like Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L TM, WOW! Embossing Powder, Prima Marketing Inc, myStamp BOX,  Tattered Angels, Craft Stamper Magazine, Scrap 365 Magazine, Histoires de Pages Magazine and Carabelle-Studio.
