Hello, my name is Kristi Parker Van Doren, Owner at Kristi Parker Designs. I live in Missouri, the Show Me State! I have been involved with paper crafting for over forty years. I was introduced to stamping at the age of 12 and over the years, I have taught many classes at the local stamping and scrapbooking stores as well as special events. I have also worked the retail side and am a previous store owner.

I love to create a large spectrum of projects with a broad range of styles. I have been blessed to attend CHA and demonstrate for several companies. Including  
Smoothfoam™, Connie Crystal, Art Glitter, ColourArte and Spellbinders!

  My style varies depending on the materials I have on hand and what is called for on any given project.  In 2014 I  designed for Ann Butler Designs, Connie Crystal, Dreamweaver Stencils & Verses Rubber Stamps! In 2013 I worked with Connie Crystal, Tombow 100 days of Tombow, Art Glitter, Holly Berry House Originals, Craft Attitude, Envirotex, ICE Resin, The Robin's Nest, Smoothfoam and MORE!  I have worked with some wonderful companies and have been published in a variety of magazines. I love creating cards, altered arts, home d├ęcor, mixed media, jewelry and scrapbooking. In my spare time I also enjoy spending time with family and friends!  My two sons are my pride and joy and are one of the reasons I create.

My motto in life is: Be with those who help your being!
