Hi! My name is Birgit Koopsen. I’m married to Erik and mom of 3 beautiful kids. I live in a little village called Winsum in the north of the Netherlands.
I started scrapbooking when my youngest child was one year old in 2003. In the last few years I fell in love with mixed media and art journaling. I love to get my hands dirty and experiment with paints and inks and all kinds of mediums! My projects and pages are mostly bright and colorful and with a lot of texture
In the last 10 years my hobby slowly turned into a job. I teach and demonstrate in my own studio at home as well as in scrapbook stores and at (international) events. Also I do freelance work for magazines. I was given the privilege to work with and design for a couple of wonderful companies like Scrapbook Adhesives by 3LTM, WOW! Embossing Powder, Prima Marketing Inc, myStamp BOX, Tattered Angels, Craft Stamper Magazine, Scrap 365, Histoires de Pages, Paper Memories, Sizzix and Carabelle Studio.
In September 2014 I had my first rubber stamp collection released with Carabelle Studio and I hope to do more product design in the future.
