I am Kishwar, Kish to family and friends. If I think back to my childhood, I remember making scrapbooks even then; of cut outs from magazines and making collages of my favourite things; flowers, animals, quotes and places I wanted to visit and much more.
As an adult I was introduced to scrapbooking by a friend when she invited me to a Creative Memories class, I was hooked from then onwards.
This photo is of me with my Mum who inspired me immensely and it is due to her that I became so interested in crafts especially sewing.
I have been scrapbooking for 20 years and my passion for it has not dulled one bit. I always think of a double page layout when taking photos and my family and friends know about this and I do get teased in a light hearted way.
Besides scrapbooking I love other papercrafts as well like making albums from scratch and making cards. I often use these as personalised gifts for family and friends.
I have contributed my page layouts with well-known scrapbooking company and I hold scrapbook workshops and classes.
My other hobbies are painting, textile designing, sewing and patch work quilting. I also have a degree in Fine Arts which has given me a more in depth understanding of colour and composition.
I live in Cheshire with my husband having recently returned to the UK after living away in several places for twenty years.My blog will be going live soon, watch this space!
