Erica Thompson, also known as Erica Rose Creates has been a scrapbook designer and educator for over 6 years. She got her start with crafting in middle school when she was given a scrapbook for Valentine’s Day. She loved taking photos and documenting her time in school and with her friends. This has carried through her adulthood and she continued her passion of documenting with her family.

Erica loves to explore when creating, though she loves clean, white space with splashes of color using inks and mists. More recently her signature style has included cut files, which she enjoys backing with pattern papers. Erica currently serves on the Pinkfresh Studio, Jillibean Soup, Doodlebug Design, and Bella Blvd design teams. Past design teams include The Cut Shoppe and Clique Kits, and she has guest designed for Paige Evans & Catherine Pooler Designs. She has also been featured in publications such as Creative Scrapbooker and Scrapbook & Cards Today.
