Meet the Team ~ Becky Olsen

by Becky Olsen | November 11, 2011

Hi! My name is Becky Olsen and I am thrilled to be a member of this amazing team! I have been learning about them everyday along with you, and everyday I have been inspired and motivated by these delightful artists!
It is quite possible that I am the the most "life experienced" member of the team, and with that comes all of the adventures that have helped shape me into what I am today. My husband of 24 years and I have 4 fantastic children, 3 of which are University of Utah students and the last is a sophomore in high school. They don't do cute things for the camera anymore, which makes their lives a little harder to document, so I do have to be stealthier in my approach and say "oh well" a whole lot more than I would like to. The upside to this is having crafting buddies that are available as sounding boards for design issues and inspiration for those days when the mojo fairy hasn't dropped by for a visit.

This room is lovingly referred to as the "Crap Room" by the hubbers and kids, but I proudly call it my studio and is where I have the luxury of spending a good portion of my day.

My favorite project made with Bella Paper Dollz collection is a layout called "Bubbles". These pictures of my daughters playing with a bubble gun at Disneyland are very precious to me, and this layout captures their joy perfectly.

One of my all time favorite layouts is this one. It captures my love for techniques and tools but is simple and tells a sweet story. I love techniques, and finding a way to implement them in my projects without overworking or cluttering is a challenge that I enjoy taking when I create. The question I ask myself every time is, "What can I take off the design and still have it work?"

I also love to create off the page projects, like this tussy mussy using the Christmas Cheer collection. These allow me the opportunity to play with shape, textures and dimension! There are so many places to take paper crafting, that sometimes I get overwhelmed by the number of ideas that are in my head. Thank goodness I have a studio filled with goodies waiting for me to get those ideas made.
