About Me

Hi! My name is Wendy Gibson. I began scrapping in March 2004 but prior to this I was seriously involved with digital graphics and web design . My approach to scrapbooking combines the best of my digital knowledge, computer knowledge, love of all paper arts and traditional scrapbooking techniques with an emphasis always on the “creative” aspect of all I do. I freely bounce back and forth between traditional scrapbooking, computer generated or digital scrapbooking, altered arts, cards, ATC’s, and many other forms of creative papercrafts.
I have recently started developing templates for various online “class” type projects. I enjoy teaching others my craft and sharing my artistic vision, even if it’s only online at the moment! Currently I am working on some exclusive projects for my portfolio.

While I am not actively seeking a challenge with a manufacturer, If you are interested in my abilities for commissioned design work such as “patterned paper design”,commisioned layouts or projects, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Assets

A few of my strongest assets are:
-Superior & multiple graphics program knowledge and capabilities.
-Work extremely well under pressure of a deadline.
-Inspire others naturally.
-Understand computers/cameras/digital processes very well.
-Passionate about photo quality and preserving photo records.
-Have a self-taught business background.
-Simply love all aspects of paper crafting
