"This simple metal gift card box is easily dressed up with some patterned paper and a homemade paper bow. The double-sided Peachy Keen papers are perfect for making bows, because even the interior side of the loops looks wonderful! Add a matching tag, and you have a beautifully-wrapped gift to give to someone special."
I was introduced to scrapbooking when a friend took me to a Creative Memories party back in 1998. I was immediately hooked on preserving my photos & stories and I've been addicted ever since!
What would you say your scrapbooking “style” is?
I think my style is constantly evolving, but that's what I love about creating. Right now, I my pages are simple, casual, and a bit eclectic.
What is your favorite technique?
Though it used to scare me, I am starting to love stamping more and more as I experiment with it.
When do you find time to scrap?
I usually have a bit of time during the day while my kids are in school, and often I scrap after they have gone to bed.
On average, how long does it take you to complete a project?
While I rarely complete a page in one sitting (I like to let a design "rest" and reevaluate it throughout the day), a typical page would probably take me an hour to complete, start to finish.
What is your favorite thing about American Crafts?
I love that the American Crafts collections are always full of color, pattern, and FUN! The color schemes never fail to make me happy and inspire me to create. And, like many other scrapbookers, I have a bit of an addiction to the Thickers. The variety of fonts, colors and textures is just unbeatable!
