Tina Chambers is 37 years old and has been married for 18 years to her high school sweetheart. They have one son, Tate, who is 14, and you will see a lot of if you venture into her gallery. He is the light in Tina’s days and the joy in her heart.
They live in rural Ohio on a farm, the same farm she has lived on her entire life. She has been scrapbooking since Tate was born, and has been published several times with paper layouts in Creating Keepsakes, Ivy Cottage Creations and Memory Makers Magazines. She has been published with digital layouts in Memory Makers, PaperKuts, Digital Scrapbook Magazine and Simple Scrapbooks. She got into digital scrapbooking in January of 2003 after seeing layouts posted on the internet. Not long after starting she was approached to join a large digital scrapbooking design team. That is where she met Margie. She started off using Picture It, moved on to Digital Image Pro, then Photoshop Elements and now Photoshop Creative Suite 2. She still creates all of her word art in Digital Image Pro, however, finding it the best program to create it in.
WordArt is her passion. She loves to take a favorite quote and turn it into Art. Tina started creating kits later in her career, and has really enjoyed them.
A book addict, Tina is now hosting DSPReaders, a monthly book club here at DSP.
Tina is an avid baker and even writes her own baking blog. She doesn't relish the eating of the treats however, she loves to bake and watch others enjoy.
Her favorite vacation spot is a toss up between Maine and The Outer Banks of North Carolina. They are land locked in Ohio, so they love the beach, but also love the slightly more obscure areas. Her favorite shows Psych and The Big Bang Theory, she loves The Amazing Race, Grey's Anatomy & enjoys a good chick flick. Her favorites are Pride and Prejudice (the BBC mini), Love Actually, Briget Jones Diary, Bend it Like Beckam, Sense & Sensibility, and The Cutting Edge. Potato chips are her junk food of choice, especially salt and vinegar chips and of course cheesecake!!! Tina loves photography. She has since she was a kid. Tina currently uses a Canon 7D. Harry Potter is another passion of hers. She is a total Potter Geek, and has read the books countless times. She currently owns 28 copies of the 7 books, and is not finished yet! She loves to talk Harry, so if you do too, be sure to pop her an email!
