It's a new month - that means it's time for a new guest designer!! This month's designer is the fabulous Canadian scrapbooker, Laura Craigie. You may know her as LuLu around the web. She has posted several of her projects in the OA Flicker gallery... in fact, that is how we spotted her!
How long have you been scrapping?
What's your favorite OA paper line?
Lately more 8.5x11, but I still do 12x12 too.
What size do you scrapbook?
1 page or 2?
Mostly one. Although I like to insert regular photo pages into my albums too. So the pictures stay with the pages that match, then I don't feel the pressure to scrap every single picture I love :)
Do you make cards?
ALL the time :) Much more often then I do layouts.
I truly wish I could say neat. But alas, it is a disaster area.
Is your scrap area messy or neat?
A Canon 30D
What camera do you use?
The Ducks in a Row set.
What is your favorite OA stamp set?
Your favorite ink?
Staz-on, and Distress Ink.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Usually in the oddest places, like looking at my shampoo bottle label in the shower or something. I try to keep a little notebook of quotes, sketches, etc to keep my ideas safe till I can get to them. I have a horrible short term memory, and would be lost with out lists, and notebooks.
Hand journaling or computer?
Computer. My printing is terrible, and my writing even worse. But I do make sure to write my boys letters and tuck them in so they can see my writing in the future if they should be curious.
Aqua, or green.
What's your favorite scrapbooking color?
My Sewing Machine, I use it on everything!
What's your most-used scrapbook tool (aside from your trimmer)?
Pretty average. I couldn't even hazard a guess since I rarely complete a layout in one sitting. I like to sleep on them.
Are you a slow scrapper or a quick scrapper?
Everything will be okay in the end, if it's not okay, it's not the end. (Unknown)
What's your favorite quote?
Let go of the idea that everything has to be perfect, you'll give yourself the freedom to really create, and even if you don't love it, that's the beauty of our hobby, there's always another page/card right around the corner.
