Meet Einat Kessler

Tell us about yourself.
I started scrapbooking in 2000 after inspired by my grandfather who has created scrapbooks since I was a little girl. I am a designer and workshop teacher. I am considered a pioneer in Israel’s scrapbooking industry, which has grown significantly in recent years. I create and design LO’s, mini albums, cards, mixed media and home décor. I am a CHA designer member (the first and only from Israel so far), I have been published in several magazines and featured in a series of workshops on TV. I’m happily married with two amazing boys.

What’s your style? What do you like to create and what’s your favorite item to use?
My style is eclectic and versatile. I like to use all kinds of materials traditional like papers, flowers, chipboard and some not so traditional like fabric, yarn, wood etc. I like to explore different combinations of materials, colors and textures. I always use my leftovers. I like to find new innovative ways of using them in my creations. I create LO’s, mini albums, cards. Mixed media and home décor.

What’s your favorite snack while creating?
I can’t eat while creating, so I don’t have a favorite snack. However I always need music when I’m working.

If you could visit one place, where would you go?
I have already been to Africa, Europe, US and Canada, so if I have to choose somewhere I have never been to, I think I would like to visit China.

Favorite guilty pasttime?
That would have to be…eating good food!
