Christine lives in South Saint Paul, Minnesota with her young son Ethan. She’s been scrapbooking for over four years and has played multiple roles in the scrapbook industry both as a designer and teacher. Christine designs for Crate Paper and also serves as their design team coordinator. In the past, she’s designed for Sassafras, Prima Marketing, October Afternoon & Studio Calico. She’s also guest designed for various online venues. She hosts a well-established blog, “Retrospection”, where she shares her latest work and routinely writes small tutorials for ongoing projects. Christine’s work is very detail oriented. She has a passion for embellishments and texture. By combining funky unique scrapbook items, Christine creates beautifully layered scrapbook layouts that keep the eye moving around the page. Her work is highly ornate, though with an edge of playfulness and vintage grunge. No detail is ever left behind.

And as a quickly updated "about me" summary, I've officially been labeled a college student. I'm currently attending a local university with the primary goal of achieving a bachelors degree in business administration and marketing. I also manage a fabulous team of talented designers on behalf of Crate Paper and routinely contribute to their blog's content and overall presentation. Life is good.


Getting on with life, and widowhood
