Meet April 2018's Guest Designer - Scrappinmom99 0 comments  

paper crafting inspiration featuring shimelle's box of crayons and pinkfresh studio's a case of the blahs collections

First name: Anne-Marie

My craft supply 'must have': I’m going to have to go with patterned paper. I just love paper! Even when I was a little girl and a teenager, before the scrap bug took me over, I loved stationary. There was an amazing stationary store that sold pretty paper by the pound and I couldn’t get enough of it! I had so many pen pals all over the world just so I could use the pretty paper! I think that is where my love for paper started!


What inspires me to create: I like to tell the stories of our lives. I like to play with pretty papers and stickers and do needlework. All of that comes together in scrapbooking.


Most readers don’t know this about me: After listening to 80s pop, 90s grunge, and heavy metal for the past…30 or so years (LOL), my 12yo daughter has done what nobody else has been able to do in a long time…gotten me to listen to and like (relatively) new music! Shawn Mendes and One Direction share space in my playlist with Kiss, Nirvana and U2.

BIO: I live in NYC with my husband and two kids. I work as a freelance copy editor. Aside from scrapping, I love reading and binge-watching Netflix while crocheting, cross-stitching or stitching on scrap pages. (Because we all know I love me some stitching!)
