Hi! My name is Kristy... and I'm your artsy-scrapper!

I'm probably what your would call an artsy type. Maybe an artist is you want to get right down to it but scrapping satisfies a creative need in me in a completely different way from drawing and painting. Its totally more of a "social" art and I LOVE IT! I love being around other scrappers and chat while I crop. Which isn't something you can do sitting by yourself with bristol and pencil (though that can be just as rewarding!) .Which is why I was SO honored when I was asked to be on this design team! I love the collaboration and teamwork. I love the love of the art form. Its all about the memories AND all about the art. I can't wait to know every one of you here on this creative journey together!

I am: a woman who wears many hats and must doff a new one fairly quickly. Mom of 2, full time employee, wife, artist, scrapper, friend.

Why do you scrap? To remember the everyday things that make life "life" in a creative way.

Inspiration: I love checking out all the magazines and the 2peas members gallery. There are so many styles out there you can not fail to be inspired!

Scrapbook Style: Eclectic yet clean

Playlist: Freebeer and Hotwings Morning Show Podcast!!! Kaboobe!

Can't live without: My Fiskars Finger Cutter! LOVE IT!

Fav Color Combo: Lime green and Turquoise

Scrapbook Trademark I hand write all my journaling, that seems to be the one consistent mark of my pages. I love th:e little journal strips. You'll definitely see those A LOT!

Confession: I am soooooo messy when I scrap! My pages aren't nearly as "involved" as other peoples but I tear thru my stuff like a whirlwind, a slow whirlwind. That's primarialy because I never go at my pages with any sort of plan. Its definately and evolution! It is not uncommon to see glitter on me the next day (even after my shower!)


Tanisha's challenge was a toughy but in the end I HAD to remain true to the blog! Here's my take on her challenge:




Well, we are at our fifth and final challenge on the blog for the week! And I for one have had a blast! I know that I've already said that I go about my pages with no plan what so ever BUT I've started doing sketches and I think this maybe just the thing I need to help streamline my scrapping! So my challenge is going to be a good ol' sketch challenge! Take it. Make it yours and have FUN!!! Here's the sketch:



Here's my example of makin' it yours!



And the prize pack is a set of acrylic stamps and 2 sets of gel stickers from Love, Elise with a spool of coordinating ribbon.



I hope we've all had a good time this week and keep working on your entries! You can still get those in until March 8th at midnight!

Happy Scrapping!

You all do such great work. How do you find time for scrapping? Do you find time everyday or a certain day a week? I'm having trouble finding/making time.

OK so here is my take on the sketch. I went simple with it because it's for my wedding album.
