Hi, my name is Vicky Alberto (aka Simply Paper on some gallery sites) and I live in Alberta, Canada. Three years ago, after having my last child, I decided not to retu to a corporate marketing job so I could raise my three young children for a while. After ten years in the marketing industry, scrapbooking was a natural extension of my work world to fill a creative void… and I was instantly hooked!
I describe my style as “a little shabby and a lot of chic”, LOL. I like each layout to look like a piece of art so I keep my titles short and joual on the back (sometimes) – to keep a clean look to my pages. I enjoy working with vintage/romantic style papers and adore adding distressed layers, doilies, chipboard and flowers to my projects. Some of my projects feature handmade flowers and my tutorials are all listed on my blog (quick links in the right sidebar). My blog address is http://simplypaperandcreativity.blogspot.com where I chat about my work, the fantastic companies I design for, and share my flower tutorials. I have been blogging for two years and am overwhelmed that I already have so many wonderful followers. This industry has such a deeply supportive and kind online network of ladies. I have “met” the most amazing people from all over the world through various online communities and have had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented ladies in the industry. I now fully embrace (the thing I used to avoid) the inteet to share and gain creative inspiration.
I am thrilled to have been asked to design for Swirlydoos starting in February. I look forward to getting to know the community members on the forum very soon.January 16, 2012 at 9:40 pm #152288January 16, 2012 at 10:48 pm #152286January 16, 2012 at 11:03 pm #152289

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."January 17, 2012 at 1:13 pm #152287January 17, 2012 at 1:15 pm #152299January 17, 2012 at 1:16 pm #152290
