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  with like minded people. I am thrilled to be on the Heartfelt Creations Design team now heading into my fifth year.  Heartfelt has truly given me a platform on which to base my style, and for that i am so grateful that I can share what i love.

 If you have any questions, I encourage  you to contact me if you are looking for someone to come into your store and teach classes using Heartfelt Creation products.
