Getting to know ...

Each month one of our team will either introduce themselves and their lovely work to you with a few questions and answers or alternatively inspire you with a little tutorial, tip or trick to help you in your creative pursuits.

This month we introduce ...


How would you describe your personal scrapbooking style?

My style if I had to describe it, would be a mix of shabby chic with mixed media. I love using lots of embellishments on my layouts too. I also love creating off the page projects with lots of mixed media too. Everything has to compliment the photo and each other. I'm not a fan of layouts where there's too much going on or you can barely see the photo. I like balance.

How long have you been scrapbooking and what first got you started?

I first started scrapbooking in 2011 as a hobby. It became good therapy for my anxiety and depression. Since then I've gained accreditation with both Spectrum Noir and Copic and have been on a few stamping/colouring design teams. As well as White.. With 1, I am also on the Design Team for Couture Creations and Ultimate Crafts (Artdeco Creations). 

Which colour are you drawn to the most and do you know why?

Purple. My birthstone is Amethyst so I'm always drawn to purples. Blues and Teals too, probably because I'm a Pisces. Those three colours together are a gorgeous combination.

What part of creating do you enjoy the most?

Seeing projects come to life and playing with new products/collections. It's really good therapy and I love spending hours creating different projects. Having a creative outlet such as scrapbooking has really been a game changer for me.

Typically how many photos do you put on your layout?

Recently I've mostly been using one photo but no more than three. For me anything more gets too busy for a single page layout.

You still have time until the end of the month to upload your take on our SOUL PEA challenge.

All details are on the blog sidebar. We'd love to see what you can do with our wonderful colour this month.
