As a third grader, Emily Pitts aspired to be a bulletin board designer for elementary school teachers. When she learned that such a career was not really plausible, she was crushed. Years later, she discovered scrapbooking and realized it might just be the fulfillment of her childhood dreams. Emily lives a mile high in beautiful Denver, Colorado, enjoying the 300 days of sunshine for which the Rocky Mountains are known. She is married to her perfect match, Kelly, who is very patient with her need to create and take photos. They have two near perfect children, Annie (almost 18) and Ethan (14). Between the three, Emily has plenty to scrap about. Typography, color, texture, and packaging influence her style, which she describes as graphic whimsy. She likes to hand-cut things and use stitching in her designs. Both her artwork and articles have been published in various scrapbook magazines worldwide. Emily happily designs for Cocoa Daisy, and manages their online marketing and social media needs. She’s also designs for Maya Road, is a part of the inspirational collective, write.click.scrapbook and is on the Simple Stories Design Team. So while bulletin boards are no longer her genre of choice, she has found her place in the world of design.
