Meet Eric Erickson. Who's Eric??
We're excited to say that Eric is the newest member to the Keller's Design Team!!! He's cute. He's funny. He's smart. But, best of all, he's an amazing scrapbooker!
We met Eric this past weekend at the Create N Crop event in Perry, GA. I kept hearing people say " have you seen that guy's scrapbooks? They are sooooo cool"....but I was busy teaching & working our booth with Keller that I didn't make it over to take a look....so a customer went & grabbed one of his scrapbooks & brought to me to see....OH MY! The first page made my mouth drop open...I may have even stopped breathing for a minute. I sat right down and went thru each page. Touching. Reading. Trying to take in all the details. I was amazed by the photos and how he uses them. I lifted flaps & hidden pages. I laughed. I cried. Isn't that what a scrapbook is supposed to be?
After I made it thru the album, I marched over & introduced myself....even though he & Keller had already become friends & Keller had told him about me. I then enjoyed his other scrapbooks he had on display. Within minutes of talking, I asked him to design for us...and he said YES!!!!
Why was Eric there? Just to meet fellow scrapbookers. Just to inspire fellow scrapbookers. Just to see what this industry is all about. He's scrapbooked for years & years, but has finally decided he wants to see & do more in this great industry. He does have a fun website, blog, and videos where he shares his amazing scrapbook techniques & ideas. And, now he will be doing stuff for us, too! Oh, happy day!!
OK, so how does this tie into our Fabulous Friday Giveaway?
