My Crafty Resume
A Little Personal Info!

My name is Karan Gerber  and I live just outside Stratford, Ontario. I am a stay-at-home mom to two young men.  Elijah who is 20 and Galen who is 18.

I have been married to a self employed concrete construction guy, named Glenn for 23 years. I manage his business tending to all the administration .  My paper crafting journey started when I went to a home party and became hooked,  that was over 18 years ago.

I thoroughly enjoy  designing with paper and being a part of a Manufacture Design Team and I have been blessed to serve on a couple teams since 2010. Besides paper crafting, i enjoy reading a good book on my kindle, camping and spending time with family.  I enjoy getting away with friends to crafty retreats and scrapbook weekends.

Objectives: I enjoy being part of a design team, working with others to achieve one goal and that is to make the scrapbook industry strong by sharing my creativity and inspiration with others.  I love to teach workshops sharing my techniques and crafty designs with others and encourage you to contact me if you are looking for someone to come into your store and teach classes using Heartfelt Creation products.
