Today we get to “gush” all about Karola Witczak who is another one of our long standing team members. Karola is never afraid to say to me “those products are not exactly easy for me to work with but I love a crafting challenge!” And you know what? in the end no matter what paper patterns or embellishments we ask her to use – somehow it always magically turns into a paper crafting masterpiece. Not only does Karola have an amazing eye for detail, but she can also layer and fussy cut better than any girl I know! She has a shabby style that somehow just works with every collection we have ever released. Karola is such a sweet soul; sometimes I wonder if she even realizes how genuinely considerate she is. We love featuring her work on our blog and it doesn’t matter if her English doesn’t always translate perfect because all we ever really want to do is stare at her gorgeous projects all day long. Thank you Karola for always being so passionate about “PINK” and for giving us 110% each and every time. I am in awe of your talent” – Rebecca
Karola fell in love with scrapbooking when she was pregnant over 9 years ago. She wanted to create a unique pregnancy diary full of photos and memories and while looking for creative inspiration on the Internet she found american scrapbooking websites. Stunned by amazing projects created by crafters from all over the world she wanted to start keeping family memories in this fantastic way. The rest is history. Karola creates traditional scrapbooking layouts, mini albums, cards and altered items but also creates digital pages. Sometimes she designs scrapbooking products, sometimes she teaches scrapbooking classes and since over 7 years scrapbooking fulfill her life to the edges. She is 35 years old but still feeling very young inside, Mom of 8 years old Rose and partner to beloved Marcin since more thasn 10 years. She loves to read, loves to laugh like a little girl and loves to listen live music, especially acid jazz.

I’m feel so blessed being a part of Pink Paislee Design Team for the past 3 years. I really love the products, the philosophy of the brand and I always saying that organization, creative skills, all ideas related to promotion and of course the Owners personality are absolutely fantastic! Working with these products are amazingly easy. For me especially when I can combine each product with others. Each collection is perfectly designed, so you can mix them in a free way! What I love about Pink Paislee products is also the strong trendsetting skills and variety of design styles in every collections. That’s why over a few years in Pink Paislee DT I opened my eyes and creativity for lots of amazing products, which seems to be “not my style”. I apreciate these lessons so much. In my newest layout I combined new Cottage Farms, She Art and Luxe products with an older Portfolio Collection; see it’s easy as 1,2,3!
As you can see – I created the background using She Art – Doily Lace mask with a bit of gesso and added lots of She Art rub-ons, Artisan elements and paper strips to make patterned bakcground in my own way. You know that I cannot create without lots of details and layers and I really love shabby chic accents on my pages with a modern twist. This page was created including my favorite elements, techniques and motifs, so I hope it’s not only with my photo and “dream big” title, it’s also all about me.
