I have been watching Lisa-Kate's work for a little bit now. I really like her torn paper style.
What makes you tick?
Scrapbook wise: Pretty music, pretty colors, pretty fabric, pretty pictures, my children’s pretty faces and a great thrift find.
Why are you so wonderful?
Oh please, I wouldn’t say I was wonderful, maybe fantastic, smashing, even great, but not wonderful, lol.
How did you become a scrapbooker?
I have been a scrapbooker since I was a teen and I still have my first scrapbook. It’s filled with all sorts of pictures, cards and clippings. I didn’t start again until about 2003 when a group of friends from my daughter’s playgroup turned me onto “modern day scrapping”.
When you hit a slump creatively, how do you get out of it?
I simply stop and focus on other things. Sometimes you just have to walk away.
What’s your favorite thing to do besides scrapbooking?
Two things fall under this category:
I’m a huge UFC fan. It’s a sport that my husband and I can enjoy together and so much better than football.
I am an obsessive thrift shopper.
What tried and true technique can you always rely on?
I don’t think I can do a layout without using my paper tearing/distressing technique and sewing (yes, there is technique to this madness, lol)
What music do you listen to when you scrapbook?
I listen to anything and everything, it just depends on the mood I’m in at the time. My iTunes list is a pretty good hodge-podge of music with anything from new artists, indie/folk to rock, jazz, disco and even some country.
What’s your most embarrassing memory (that you are willing to share) and did you scrap it?
I don’t embarrass easily so I don’t have an embarrassing memory to share, however I do have a ton of air head moments. One that comes to mind is when my husband and I were meeting with a business associate and her niece. The niece told us that she was in college to get her degree in accounting and I (for some goofy reason) immediately turned to her and asked “Oh, are you getting your Masters”? There was dead silence and she looked so confused when she answered me with a “no”. My husband now jokes me that I have very high expectations for people.
I have not scraped it but I think if I do, it will have to include a picture of me with my foot in my mouth, lol.
