Greetings from Sunny Seattle!

Hello there! My name is Kristin Frost and I am very excited to be a part of's Design Team. I am thrilled to share my love for creating and scrapbooking with all of you, and I thank Scott for inviting me to do so. :)

I come from an art background - ever since I was young, my passion has been to create. I grew up drawing, painting and card-making whenever I had the opportunity. I started scrapbooking about 6 years ago, right about the same time I began my painting degree at the University of Washington. I love using inks, experimenting with new techniques, and adapting my love for painting into watercolor and acrylic scrapbook layouts. My other love is teaching -I am an art instructor at a local art school and really enjoy working with kids. My husband of 1 year and I live just out of Seattle, Washington and very much enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

I look forward to creating with all of you and I appreciate any feedback you may have. Attached is a recent picture of my lovely hometown. Enjoy!

Take care and have a happy day!

~ Kristin :)

Art Journal

My latest project - an Art Journal I created for my wonderful daughter. It's a really simply, low cost project that gives her plenty of scope to be creative & record some of the gazillion things going round in her little head!

I've used the fab Zutter Bind-it-All Machine, plus a piece of Basic Grey Urban Prairie Weather Vane PP (this PP actually inspired the whole project! It just screams doodling to me!!), plus the Basic Grey Birdcage Stamps (LOVE!) and Heidi Swapp Clear Alpha Stamps + Making Memories Puffy Alphas.

[I've linked these images straight their listing instore, just for your shopping pleasure!]

I wanted to keep this project simple & sturdy - it's going to go from bookshelf to backpack to messy desk to the floor!! So it can't have too many 'bits' hanging off it!!

I hope you like, & if you're thinking of investing in a Bind-it-All, (or you have one stashed in the back of your cupboard!!) l I hope you get a clear idea of how the machine can work for you.

Enjoy ;]

Thanks for watching!

Butterfly Card - K&Company + Making Memories

Here's a quick little card - perfect if you're in a hurry!

Just grab some KandCompany Butterfly stickers, a big round punch & some luscious 8x8 Making Memories PPs & you're away!!

I've used one of my husband's old university books & punched out a big stack of circles, then attached them with some brads from the KandCompany Build-a-Flower Kit - matches perfectly with the KandCompany butterfly stickers! To hide the brad backs, I lined the card with some MM PPs (Flower Patch 8"x8" Multi pack). To finish off - a little Chalk Box ink swiped around the edges.

Super quick! You can find all these materials over @ right now!

Thanks for stopping by!

Materials List

Silly me!! I forgot to pop a list of the gorgeous materials I used in my video! So here it is -

Basic Grey Porcelain Aviary Stamp

Of course, all this scrappin' goodness is available at, so head on over for a spot of retail therapy! [Hurry - as I type, those lovely aviary stamps are on sale!!]
I also used a few buttons from my stash, plus a length of embroidery floss from my sewing kit, along with a sheet of vintage sheet music I sourced from one of my favourite antique stores here in Tasmania.
