About Me

29 September
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.


Cari lives on a small farm in Ohio with her husband, three kids, two dogs, two cats, five goats, and several chickens. She loves Gilmore Girls, glitter, coffee, and her kids. But not in that order.
