Hi! I’m Nadine and I’m so happy you’re here. I am the owner, designer, paper lover & kit maker  here at Nadine Karen Design. I have been creating & making for as long as I can remember. I’ve dabbled in painting, cross stitching, knitting, beading, crafting and DIYing. But my heart holds true to creating with pattern paper. I just love the smell of new paper. I design greeting card collections, mini albums, folios, scrapbook layouts and more. I turn almost all those projects into kits that you can then use to create your own projects.


I quit my “job job” in 2009 to pursue my creative passions & work for myself. I have been teaching scrapbooking, card making, and building kits since then. I have worked at multiple events for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine but my full time creating was for Treasured Memories in Edmonton, AB. That was until this past July when my family relocated to British Columbia for my husband’s work. I am beyond grateful to Treasured Memories for their unwavering support in me & for giving my work a platform. I wouldn’t be where I am without them.


This space is where I get to share my life and work with you. I want to inspire people to be creative, to let them (and myself) know that we’re not alone. I want to create a community of like minded individuals who want more joy in their life. Simply put, I hope I can leave a little light wherever I go and if I’m lucky I get to do it with paper.
