Where is the first place you look for inspiration?
I look to my Instagram feed first! I only follow papercrafting and home decor accounts that TRULY inspire me, so that when I have a minute to look through my feed. I know I will see something that sparks my desire to sit down and create.
What is your go-to, must have tool?
It’s not a physical tool, but a software tool! I use Adobe Photoshop Elements daily to add journaling to my pages, edit my photos for layouts, as well as my layout photos. I couldn’t live without this important piece of software!
If you had an extra half hour in the day, what would you do?
If I had 30 minutes all to myself, without laundry or dishes to do, I would sit and read a book! It happens rarely, and I usually stay up way too late to get in just a few more pages.
When did you start papercrafting and how did it come about?
I started paper crafting by attending Stampin’ Up! workshops with my mom when I was a teenager. I still love stamping and making cards. I created my first scrapbook about my senior year in high school when I was 18, complete with shaped photos and all of the stickers. Then, a few years later in 2008.1 decided to create a mini album about our honeymoon in Italy and that was that. I was hooked on scrapbooking, and have been doing it ever since.
At which store would you like to max out your credit card?
I would probably max out my credit card at a home store, like Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel or Home Goods. I love browsing for new pieces for our home, and since my background is in interior design, it’s kind of my “thing.”
