Meet Kimber:

Always a crafter of some kind, Kimber McGray started scrapbooking 5 ½ years ago and has never looked back. Obsessed would be a mild way of describing her love of paper crafting.

Over the past four years, Kimber's work has been published in Memory Makers, Creating Keepsakes, BHG Scrapbooks Etc., Scrapbook Trends, Cards, CardMaker, Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine regular issues, as well as featured in different Idea Books. Her work has also appeared in major ad campaigns for We R Memory Keepers and Core’dinations. Kimber was also announced as a Hall of Fame 2007 winner with Creating Keepsakes. Kimber's 1st book, Scrapbook Secrets was released in May 2009. She co-authored Remember This, which was released June 2010. Her 3rd book with F&W Publications, 175 Fresh Card Ideas was recently released in August 2010.

She enjoys working with all different aspects of the industry by designing in all realms. She is currently designing for 3 different Manufacturers: Jillibean Soup, Unity Stamp Company and Core'dinations Cardstock. This helps her keep her work fresh and new as well as challenge her to use different products daily.

She lives in Carmel, Indiana, with her husband Bill of 10 years and two children, Andrew (7) and Laura (5).
