Spotlight on Ann-Marie

There are a bunch of new In-House Designers and Scrapbookers that started working at AC recently and today we want to feature the stylish and talented Ann-Marie Morris!


Hometown: Simi Valley, CA

Education: BFA in Multimedia Design from San Diego State University

Scrapbooking experience: I have been obsessed with crafting and creating "stuff" for as long as I can remember, but I didn't officially get into scrapbooking until college. On a whim, I decided to make my parents a scrapbook of our family memories for Christmas, so I began browsing the internet for cool design ideas. Once I discovered Flickr and blogs - forget it - I was HOOKED! I couldn't believe how vast and inspiring the blog world could be and all the amazing things people could do with paper! Scrapbooking quickly became more than just a hobby, it became a lifestyle (as cheesy as that sounds!). Later, I would go on to change my major in college from Interior Design to Multimedia Design because it became clear to me that I was better suited to work with patterned paper, not wallpaper. Fast forward to a year after graduation and here I am in Utah working for American Crafts. I never imagined I would be able to do something I love so much for a living! Everyday is a fresh and exciting opportunity and I couldn't be more excited about this new phase of my life!

Favorite thing about scrapbooking: I love the whole process! From the initial stage of taking photos and being really excited to scrap them, to gathering fun papers and embellishments together, to the actual design process - I love it all! Even on days when I don't feel like sitting down to scrap, just seeing my supplies and thinking about all the possibilities makes me super happy :) Plus I LOVE the blog scene - I don't know what I would do without the constant, ever-changing source of inspiration.

What are you looking forward to about working at American Crafts: I am really excited to see the lines we work on come to fruition and then be able to scrap with them. I honestly look forward to coming to work each day and that in and of itself is better than anything I could ask for! :)
