My Resume

About Me:
My name is Tammy Malone and I live on a small farm in north Texas with my wonderful husband and handsome son who now attends Bible College in Neosho, MO.

My family has been my main focus of scrapbooking since 1995 but this is not where it all began. In 1981 I was a Miss Teen World contestant and was required to put together a scrapbook. I wasn't crowned Miss Teen World, but I did win the scrapbook division. How was I to know that this one event in my life would bring me to where I am today?

Over the years I have dabbled in various art forms such as clay, ceramics, decoupage, leatherwork, weaving, painting, etc. The year 2001 was when I discovered Rubberstamps. I laid my scrapbooking passion aside and solely focused on mastering this new found art form. In fall 2004 I began to refocus my attention to scrapbooking. Since that time I have been published, won contests, and have been recognized as an accomplished artist in the scrapbooking industry.

Being chosen in January 2007 as a ScrapFriends Review Team Member was a major accomplishment. Being a part of this team allowed me to work with various manufacturer's which pushed me to go "outside of the box" on several occasions. I have clearly come out a better artist because of it! In June 2008 I was introduced to PK Glitz and from that time forward, my artistic career has never been the same! I began with this company by helping them at vendor shows. Then, in June 2009 I was asked to be a part of their very first design team and to also help with marketing. Since then, PK Glitz has developed a company blog which I am now a contributing editor which includes creating tutorials for the blog / website along with creating projects to showcase at vendor shows and various media outlets.

It was during the winter break of 2010 when I was asked to visit the home office of P K Glitz. During that visit I was offered the full time position of Marketing & Sales Rep. for the company. I was completely honored and officially took my position on December 15, 2010.

Scrapping Style:
I don't consider myself to have any particular style, but I do veer away from things that are "mysterious or dark" and lean more towards happy and uplifting expressions in my art. One thing that I have discovered is that preserving my families history can take on many forms and doesn't necessarily always have to be locked inside of a book. Over the past several years I have discovered various art mediums that has allowed me to take my paper art to a whole new level. Today I do not consider myself as a scrapbooker or rubberstamper, but more of a mixed media artist.
