Hello there! My name is Kristin Frost and I am very excited to be a part of BlueMoonScrapbooking.com'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 :)

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!

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.
Thanks for stopping by!
