I am: a gypsy. it is very hard to lock me into any one category. i can be very straightlaced and "locked in" on one thing, and the next day i'm off to the moon! I am a 32 year old working mom who loves her day job, but really enjoys being an "artist" at night!
Why do you scrap? it gives me an outlet for creativity. in my regular day job i don't have that much opportunity to be creative! it is also a huge stress relief! i sit and craft and let my mind wander!
Inspiration: anything and everything. SERIOUSLY! LOL! i have found inspiration in other blogs, magazines, my house, my family, museums, the newspaper...the list goes on. besides the pics of my fabulously beautiful family...patterned paper is one of the biggest inspirations for how i want to do a page.
Scrapbook Style: all over the place! i am very into vintage and distressed looks. i am a little bit of everything though!
Playlist: changes frequently. it all depends on the mood i'm in and what i am working on. "Celtic Woman" has been listened to many many times when i'm doing late night work; and it is often mixed in with some AC/DC, Billy Joel, Sir Elton, Toby Keith, TI, Rhianna, Nickelback, Def Leppard (and most 80's hair bands), The Killers, and the Foo Fighters. This also can change week to week!
Can't live without: craft wipes. I have many different types of stamps, and a good container of craft wipes will clean just about all of them. oh...and my kraft mat; because anything and everything will easily wipe off! one more thing...makeup sponges...the best, easiest and cheapest way to apply ink direct to paper!
Fav Color Combo: right now it's berry pink and chocolate brown
Scrapbook Trademark: distress inks. i think i use them in almost everything. i really enjoy putting ink to plain paper and playing around.
Confession: i am not a regular scrapbooker! i only do a few pages a month, most of the time i play in card making, tags, and collage. i have altered notebooks, but not much else. i also go through stages, where i will do nothing but tags or scrapbook pages for several weeks..and then all of a sudden i want to do something else!
My "If the shoe fits..." layout is based on the shoes that I wear EVERYDAY! . However...they are not the shoes that I wish I was wearing everyday! I have a fab bunch of boots that I would love to wear! However...considering the amount of time I spend on my feet during the day...it's just not possible to wear the shoes I adore everyday! So I have included a pic of some of my boots, and the tag says what I wish I wore. If the shoe fits...I guess I would have to say I love to be comfortable...and I'm a little worn around the edges...but I hold up pretty darn well!
My challenge for all of you is to use one stamped image in as many ways as possible! I have so many stamps that I have used only once...mostly because once I create something with that image, it's hard for me to imagine another way to use the image! So...below are examples of how I used the Eiffel Tower image in many different ways. I have created 3 cards, and...in the front cover of my mini album, the Eiffel Tower has been stamped on a transparency and then layered with other items. I would like for you to use the image of your choice in at least 3 different items.
And the prize pack for the winner of this challenge is a K&Company "kit"! Included are an 8.5x8.5 paper pack, a package of stickers, bejeweled embellishments, brads and a tag pad. All are from the "Que Sera Sera" line and I just absolutely love them! I have had to hide this prize pack out of sight because it is just too tempting for me!
Please remember to post a link to the pictures of your version of this challenge in the comments to this post! Have fun!
