Recently, a scrappy friend of mine asked, “What is your signature style?”

Supplies:  Fancy Pants Designs

We have been discussing this off and on, and at first I was puzzled, but then I panicked…oh no! Who am I? Do I have a design style?

Sometimes I’m vintage and use heritage photos…

Supplies:  Bazzill

sometimes I’m graphic and simple….

Supplies:  Stampin’ Up!


and sometimes I’m playful and cute…

Supplies:  Maggie Holmes for Crate Paper
Supplies:  Bo Bunny

I’ve now come to terms with the idea that I am a ‘scrapbooking chameleon’ of sorts…I change up my designs according to my moods, the papers and the photos.

And I’ve also decided that it’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially because of the design work I do with Canadian Scrapbooker magazine.  I love experimenting with all trends, products and styles, so I am very very lucky I have that opportunity to just “be myself” and express my creativity with the magazine!  In the new Summer 2013 issue, you can see my changeable chameleon design style in all of these layouts and cards.

I’m also very fortunate to be on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Design Team because that means I can use whatever papers and products I like!

So the ‘crisis’ is averted…well, at least until next week!

    great …now that Boy George song is playing a loop in my head! LOL…I think its better to be a chameleon than stuck in one style. That’s why you are so versatile Kelly!

    Glad to know I am not alone in being a bit of a chameleon! I tend to be more graphic and clean, but every now and then I love to mix it up!!!

    I’m the same way sometimes! Depends on the day, the mood and the photo. Thanks for addressing this issue most of us may face. Cute virtual photo layout and I love the heritage as well.
