Lisa Spiegel, Scrapbook Design Artist

Scrapbook Resume
I am interested in freelance and full-time design opportunities. I've been scrapbooking for 18 years, and am capable of creating and completing a wide range of assignments such as pages, cards, altered items, articles, sketches, and challenge inspiration pages. I actually enjoy the process of tutorials and have even dipped my toe into the vlogging world.  Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries via e-mail!

The Way I Scrap:
My style is eclectic, but I like to keep the focus on my photos - I tend to layer elements a lot, and I put a lot of 'love' into my layouts: sewing with my machine, hand-stitching with embroidery thread, misting, distressing, stamping, and spending a lot of time on small details. I go where my heart takes me with my pages, and don't often plan before I start creating. I find it very easy to work with a wide range of products with varying styles, and usually achieve different looks depending on what I'm working with, though they all have my similar qualities about them. I work very well under deadlines, manage my time well, and love the challenge of working with a new kit or new product. I love when when I hear that I've created something "out of the box".
