Our July Guest Designer

Good morning!  Yesterday our July kit premiered, and today I'd like to introduce you to the talented lady who will be guest designing with the kit for us this month!  

We're happy and excited to introduce you to:

Pamela Ellis




I worked at the Toronto General Hospital as an RN until I retired from a back injury and made my way into the social service sector. I worked with women and children victimized by family violence and started a non-profit group called A.L.I.V.E. in Toronto. I ran the program for several years until my hubby and I opted for a quieter life in the North and moved to Gravenhurst Ontario where I have lived for the past 12 years. I've raised five daughters and have three granddaughters with my fourth grandchild on the way this November! I took up scrapbooking after my first granddaughter Lilly was born six years ago. I wasn't able to really explore the field, as I cared for my mother for three years full time until she passed away from cancer in 2011. After her passing I resolved to put myself first for the first time in my life and redid my scrap room where I have hunkered down for the long hall. I find peace in scrapbooking. I like the solitude I have when I am alone with my memories and love matching them up to the perfect paper & embellishments. I am a paper junkie and always will be! It doesn't matter how much I have, it's never enough! I don't have a specific style, I start with one idea and finish with something completely different and will always strive to be better. Most of all I love the sense of community in scrapbooking. I have met some pretty incredible people in the field of scrapbooking, some of whom I now consider true friends and am truly grateful for how much scrapping has enriched my life.

We look forward to seeing your work with the kit, Pam!
