Q:Tell us a bit about you and your family.
A: Well, I’m a 30 something California girl who has been transplanted to the great state of Maryland. I met my Husband of 1 year Bill here. He has a 17 year old daughter Tori and we have two mutts Berkley and Libby. Fondly nicknamed the idiot twins.
Q: How long have you been scrapbooking and where did you get your start in this craft?
A: I’ve been scrapping for about two years. My Mother really got me into it. She lives in the northwest where stores are abundant! I found some groups online and a store and that was it for me. My first scrapbook , in my adult life, if of meeting my biological father. I still look at that book!
Q: What inspires your creativity when you are scrapbooking?
A: Really my friends. I like a lot of humor in my LO’s. I always seem to be sparked by something that is said and spin that into a title or theme for one of my pages. When I am lacking in the inspo department I head straight for some challenge blogs!
Q: Describe your creative style
A: I don’t think I have a tell tell style. My friends I am sure would disagree. I like clean and cluttered. If that makes any sense! I do like a lot of bits, they have to placed just so. Too much and you lose the photo. I really like to use color and patterned paper. You will almost always find something in three’s on my LO’s.
Q: What are your three favorite products/techniques right now?
A: Sassafrass Lass, I can’t get enough of their new lines. I’ve been really making a lot of my own embies, flowers, yo-yo’s etc. I am bored with the products out there. I’m also addicted to cutting out shapes from patterned paper.
Q: What project(s) are you currently working on?
A: Nothing really. My friends and I are working on a stash diet. I’m just trying my best to stick to it!
Q: Describe your perfect day
A: Going site seeing with my Husband, some good food, my camera and a metro card.
