Hi! My name is Jill Marie Paulson and I am SO excited to be guest blogging this week. Georgana was kind enough to send me an amazing package of Adornit products and I had an amazing time creating layouts. I’ll be sharing several projects with you this week and hopefully you’ll find something that inspires you!
I’ve been married to my husband, Justin, for 11 years and we have one daughter, Kaitlin, who is 8 years old. I am the Assistant Director of Admissions for a private college in the Midwest and it keeps my quite busy, but I always make sure to find time for scrapbooking…even if my scrap sessions do sometimes get a little more spread out than I’d like.
Of course, Kaitlin is the primary subject of all my scrapping and was actually the reason that I started scrapbooking about 9 years ago. When I couldn’t find a baby book that I liked, I decided that I would create my own and I never looked back.
I would consider myself to be a fairly clean and simple scrapper. I tend to lean towards straight lines and even margins and simple embellishments that really allow my photos and journaling to shine. As I mentioned earlier, my work keeps me pretty busy, so this style is partially due to preference and partially due to necessity. This style helps me to scrap faster and keep more memories.
I have had layouts published in Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Scrapbook & Cards Today, Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbooks etc., Simple Scrapbooks, Simply Handmade and, most recently, Scrapbook News & Review (an online publication).
I also have a blog that features my photos, scrapbooking projects, my free word art, a monthly creativity prompts download and more. You can visit me at www.amatterofmemories.com.
