1. Describe your crafting style.
Artistic. I love experimenting with new techniques and product, as well as always looking for new trends in design and to other industries for inspiration. I love white space, but I am never afraid to fill it if the layout calls for it.
2. Your favorite must have crafty tool(s):
The obvious, a paper trimmer. I don't think there is a project I create that I don't use it. I'm also big into stamping and making cards, so stamp repositioning tool is super handy. And finally, tweezers. I know that sounds weird, but they help so much placing items on a page or card and not have your fingers in the way. Plus they can also easily help place sequins on a project.
3. Something new you have learned recently?
I decided to pick up my Copic Markers again. I've been taking online classes to improve my skills and work on these skills at least once a day. It's the only way to get better is practicing. I'm not in love with every project I create, but I see the progress. There are some GREAT teachers in the industry that really break down how to color something and they are really inspiring.
4. Something you are scared of trying?
I guess I'm not really afraid to try anything. I like to experiment with new products. I guess things I'm interested that I haven't had time or money that I wanted to invest in is the acrylic pouring. I think it looks so cool! But I'm hesitant to fully invest into the art form.
5. What inspires you to create?
I have to say for a long time it was just my husband, myself and our dogs. We are talking 16 years of us. I would create layouts of us and our dogs, but then got uninspired to create layouts a few years ago. My subjects were the same and the layouts all had a similar theme. Last November we welcomed a baby boy. He has been such a joy and inspiration to my projects. I love scrapbooking again. He is my muse. Documenting moments in his life has given me more purpose again to scrapbook.
