I'm Jina Jean. I live in Seoul, South Korea with my family. Last June, I turned 37, but I'm still single. So, I entirely tend to concentrate on only myself, my favorite things and my life's desires in all of aspects of my daily lives. There's no exception to scrapbooking. My layouts and photos are mostly about my routines, hobbies and sometimes, my friends.
I currently design for Gossamer Blue and Write. Click. Scrapbook and also teach scrapbooking class in Korea.

Here is a few sneaks of my scrap space:
★ Guest Design Q&A
1. How long have you been scrapbooking and why did you start?
: When I first saw my friend, Katie Kim's wedding scrapbook in 2006, I've been hooked ever since.
But I could not well start scrapbooking until 2009 and actually I have taken up scrapbooking seriously since 2011.
2. How would you describe your scrapbooking style?
: I mostly enjoy a simple layout with one photo, fancy layers using tons of embellishments and rich textures.
Absolutely I'm addicted to bright colors and romantic details.
3. What scrapbookers have influenced you most?
: Undoubtedly my scrapbooking muse is Ania-maria Wolniak. As soon as I found her blog about 2 years ago, oh my God, I fell in love with her beautiful art pieces at once. Since I've become a big fan of her. I adore all of extraordinary compositions and color combos she makes.
Also lately I added some fabulous scrapbookers to my list. :) - Wilna Furstenberg's arty style, Stephanie Bryan's soft & airy tones, WaiSam Ho's cute layering technics and so on. Oh, There are too many talented people all around the world!
4. What is your favorite thing about kit clubs?
: Always I feel I'm in a certain pattern of shopping and designing. Sure, It's pretty familiar and habitual to me. But sometimes It's quite boring, too.
And in this way, kit club is an exciting challenge for me. From monthly kit club supplies I easily could get a lot of chances and motivations to try various style and hot trend. It's certain that give an opportunity for me to develop my style and taste in my own scrapbooking business.
5. If you departed on a week-long trip to CHA Anaheim 2014, what are your 5 favorite scrapbooking items you would bring with you (besides your camera and photos!)?
: I won't hesitate to put 5 favorite items into my luggage. patterned papers, tissue paper or vellum, some cords(especially white thread or oyster twine), white mist and an ephemera pack(maybe from American Crafts or Crate paper always I love).
6. How would you describe the Citrus Twist December's kit and what do you enjoy most about the kit?
: December Kit is full of cozy seasonal mood - for example various tones of brown & silver and cute patterns as tree & hunter trophy.
Among them my most favorite items are Citrus Twist's wood chips, Heidi Swapp's silver stickers and Studio Calico's vellum star stickers. These are so useful here and there on my space. I really like to play around with these little things.
