How long have you been a card maker/scrapper & when did you start?
About 14 years ago I was introduced to Stampin' Up! . Immediately I was thrilled with the idea that I could make greeting cards with rubber stamps. Since then, I have become a fan of digital stamping; love the versatility of their use as well as the ease of pre-colored images. I use those more now than my 100's of rubber and clear stamps.
Do you follow sketches or dive right in?
A sketch is a must for me. My creativity is definitely dependent on some one's sketch or design.
How many projects do you make a week?
It could be safe to say that I am addicted to cardmaking. During the winter months, I make at least 40 cards a month which I send to Operation Write Home. There are 24 of us in my family (11 of them grandchildren) so with all the birthdays, anniversaries, and special events, 45 cards a month is not unusual.
What is your favourite tool (what can't you create without) & why?
What is my favorite tool? How about my fav three: guillotine cutter, ScorePal, Cuttlebug. A great big cutter is a must for me in order to cut straight! Love my score pal if only to fold the cards evenly in half. And the Cuttlebug I use for dies as well as embossing. How did I do without it?
How would you describe your style?
Because so many of my cards to to OWH, I keep my cards fairly simple and without many embellishments. NO GLITTER is allowed, which is okay by me because I'm not inclined to do glitz and bling anyway. I have tried to stretch myself to do multi-media and shabby chick but my comfort is clean cuts, symmetry, no frills.
Describe your crafting area.
I am very fortunate to have a room set apart for my crafts. It is great not to have to clean up after myself - just close the door til next chance to play.
Do you have a blog? I
Over the last 3 years I have been on six design teams - all digital companies or challenge blogs. I am currently on 2 DT's.
