Hi to all of my Sizzix Friends,

My name is Kim Roberto, and I am the founder and co-product designer of Scrappy Cat. I have been so excited about sharing our products and ideas with all of you. My husband, Chris – our creative director and graphic designer – has been very busy creating new designs for you to enjoy through the Sizzix product line! Below is a project I created for you to use as a home décor item to celebrate Valentine's Day. I am hoping that through this blog you can get to know me better and I can get to know you, our Sizzix friends. To give you a little history, I have a professional business, marketing and communications background as well as television experience on QVC and Shop at Home. My passion is creating exciting products! My hope for you is that our Sizzix/Scrappy Cat products can bring a piece of happiness into your home. I would love to hear back from you.
