How long have you been scrapbooking for and why did you start? 6 years with a passion but can remember creating pages using cut out pictures and mementos to decorate my room from when I was about 8 years old. Like many people I started when I had children not only to record the memory but because I love the artistic process of scrapbooking.
Where do you get your inspiration from? I can get inspiration from almost anywhere including magazines, artwork, photos I’ve taken and most often from the inspiring papers designed by the amazing Kaisercraft Design girls!
Favourite subject to scrap – Obviously my girls but I also love scrapping unusual subjects.
One word to describe YOURSELF? Positive
One word to describe your scrapping STYLE - Oh too hard, I don’t think I fit anywhere…..how about Free-Style?
Favourite Quote – Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass it’s about learning to how dance in the rain. Unknown
Last Book You Have Read - Unfortunately I don’t find a lot of time to read more than magazines. I have read Mind, Body Mastery by Dan Millman fairly recently and it profoundly changed the way I approach certain challenges.
Favourite Music – I have so many depending on my current phase which right now is dance music! Other faves are Pink, Powderfinger, James Blunt, Pearl Jam and Jack Johnson among many others.
Favourite Food – Salad…kidding, it’s chocolate of course!
Favourite Kaisercraft Product – Favourite Kaisercraft Paper range to date? My favourite product would be the Paper Blooms and as for papers, I can’t choose just one, Chanteuse, Bubblegum Hills and Secret Bird Society.
Any Tips for a New Scrapper – Start with just the basic tools that you need, don’t go purchasing a whole lot of gadgets until you have an idea of what you will actually use. Most importantly, there is no right or wrong (well aside from the fact that most times the sticky bits go on the BACK of things!) and don’t be afraid to experiment!
