Truth be told, Project Life is all the rage. In honor of this momentous hobby, Crate Paper put together a dynamic, inspiring team of Project Life Experts. These gals, like most out there, are filling small pockets with daily inserts, giving the day-to-day a permanent place to rest. We asked if they might like to share their journey with us while highlighting some of Crate's stylish designs. Excitedly they agreed and so, each has claimed a Friday as "her" own and will be sharing a first-hand look at Project Life in the making. The official title of this new feature is "Project CP Life". Give a cheerful "Hello" to our four-member PL Team!
Hi! My name is Naomi Atkins, and I'm so happy to be a part of the Crate Paper design team! Crate has always, and still continues to be, my favorite paper company. I co-own a business, Inspired and Enchanted Photography, and we have a very vintage style. My love for Crate Paper's vintage, beautiful style is a perfect match for what we try to create with our photography. Our favorite places to shop for props are antique stores, flea markets and thrift shops! Photography is a second career for me, one I fell in love with after my love affair for paper began! I started having children, and wanted to take better pictures of them. I had taught law classes at a college for eight years, so with my business and legal background, it was the right fit for me to start a business where I could work at home. Along with traditional layouts, I will be working on some "Project Life" layouts this year...so once a month, I'll be sharing a Project Life layout for those of you who love documenting those every day moments and using your beautiful Crate Paper supplies to help you out! Project Life is so versatile..you can do as much or as little with it as you like! I'm a big fan of making things pretty, so Crate Paper is the perfect accompaniment to my PL pages for those weeks when I have a little extra time. I'm so grateful to be a part of this amazing team and can't wait to see everyone's gorgeous creations this year!
My name is Janna - I'm a 34 year old full-time artist from Germany. I grew up in Oldenburg (Oldbg.) and moved back after living in Leipzig for 6 years. I'm a "real" Northern German girl, treasuring the flat country and a cup of tea in the afternoon.
I live in a house with a small garden and a pond, together with my Danish husband, Jesper, our dog, Sindri, two rabbits and a few "foster" goldfish. I spend a lot of time in my studio which is the first floor of our house. Here is where I craft, paint, take photos and work on the computer.
My love for papercrafts and mixed media art evolved in 2010 when a friend introduced me to scrapbooking. Since then, I have been working together with well-known papercrafting companies, magazines and artists. Furthermore, I'm teaching scrapbooking and mixed media classes (online and in-person).
Hi, I'm Megan Klauer! Being a mom of 3, I love to escape to the world of creating and scrapbooking as often as possible. It's as much about relaxing and being creative as it is about capturing and share those stories for future generations. I strive to journal on my layouts as much as I can; even if it's just a short sentence or two. I keep a blog that serves as my online "art journal". When I'm not chasing my little ones around, I also do on-location photography; where I chase other little ones around with my camera in hand.
Hi Everyone, Piradee Talvanna here! I've always been a crafty person, continuously creating or doing something, and was introduced to the world of scrapbooking in 2008, when I relocated from Thailand to Singapore for work (I'm originally from Bangkok). It was there that I walked into my first scrapbook store and quickly became addicted to all the beautiful papers and fun embellishments. Scrapbooking not only allows me to explore and challenge my creativity, but also, helps me de-stress after a long day at work; as I scrap away the wonderful memories that hubby and me are creating here. I've also had the opportunity to be published in several magazines including Creating Keepsakes, Cards, Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbook Inspirations and Scrapbook Memories, as well as being part of the Creating Keepsake Magazine Dream Team 2011, 2012 and currently, 2013.
