About Me

Koti Beth Designs was named after my daughter, Dakota Elizabeth. My kids are the reason I scrapbook and my inspiration so it was only fitting to name my business after my daughter.

I started scrapping when my oldest was a baby in 2002. I knew these days would go by fast and I wanted to save every moment. What started out as a hobby has turned into an obsession. I love to create and alter everything I can. My house is filled with altered treasures I've made and my kids have album after album chronicling their lives.

I know some people just don't want to take the time to scrap but do want albums for their kids. That's why I started out making premade albums. My business has expanded to altered tins, altered clipboards, scrapbooking kits, die cuts, paper packs, and whatever else I decide to create when the creativity bug strikes.

I have been married to a wonderful man who lets me buy as much scrapbooking stuff that I can hide *grin* He is relatively supportive of my obsession hobby because as I put it, I either scrap or I'm a psycho witch. He'd rather I scrap a few nights a week :)

We have three beautiful children. Two boys ages 7 and 3 and our little Princess just turned 2. We also have a cat, Lucifer aka Luie, who is the best squirrel dog my husband has ever had.
