I'm Camilla Ekman from southern Sweden. I work as a Montessori teacher and when I'm off work I do what I love most - that is of course scrapbooking. My favourite scrapping subjects are my two children, Julia and Filip, but also my sweet nieces and nephews. I have scrapped since early 2007 and enjoyed every minute of my hobby. Through scrapbooking I keep my memories alive but above all I get to be creative. I get to use my hands! I would say that I tend to scrap romantic and shabby. I love using flowers, bling and lace. When I don't scrap I enjoy books, travelling and spending lots of time with friends. I am so proud and honoured to design for Glitz Design and for C’est Magnifique Kit Club.
What is your favorite color(s) to work with? It depends. I really like a lot of different colours. Sometimes I like to use bold colours and sometimes softer.
What would you say is your "fingerprint" on your scrapbook pages? (i.e., what do most of your pages have that make it your signature style?) I think my flower clusters is my fingerprint. I often use b/w photos and I love to use bling swirls.
What do you find most challenging when working on a layout? Sometimes it’s really challenging to get started. I need to be in the right mood. Music is important in that stage. LOL
What is your favorite part about CSI--the colors, the stories, or the inspiration? Actually I like the combination of them – that’s my favourite part.
Confession time. Okay, fess up! What secret do you not want to admit but are willing to confess here? I admit I have a flower addiction. You wouldn’t have guessed that, huh? LOL
If you would like to see more of my work, please visit my blog, Camilla.
Welcome to CSI. I have just checked out your blog, your work is stunning.
And your flower clusters are gorgeous!
Camilla, your work is so beautiful! I'm so happy to have you as our guest designer this month! Your fingerprint of the flower clusters is very evident--you do such a beautiful job with that!
