Hey, it's Angela once again....
Hello everyone! Angela here, back for year four (4! Can you believe it?) coordinating our fabulous Design Team at Scrappy Chic.
When I'm not scrapping (or making cards or minis or other fun paper things), I'm probably at work (I teach college English full time), hanging out with my lovely husband of almost ten years (10! Can you believe it?), or attempting to herd our two cats (whom you will often see on my pages. Well, the husband, too, I guess ;) ).
I actually started scrapping with the goal of being on the Design Team at Scrappy Chic. I loved shopping at the store, and I guess I was looking for an excuse to do it more often! It appears to have worked, as you'll frequently find me trolling the aisles looking for new goodies. That also means if you see me in the store, there's a good chance I'll know where something is, so ask away! :)
I'm an 8.5x11" scrapper, primarily -- something about a big giant square of paper kind of freaks me out. However, this year I've taken the plunge and started a 12x12 Project Life album (the store will have their products in May or so -- did you know? How cool!). I love pattern and color and mists and stamping and tapes and Silhouette-cutting and mixing and matching. I'm not great at using flowers and girly stuff, but I'll give it a shot when I need to! Trends are my friend a lot of the time -- it satisfies my short crafting attention span to have a constant flow of new ideas.
Here are a couple of layouts from the past few months that represent my style pretty well:
I love scrapping the everyday (grading essays, anyone?), and I sure love me some Studio Calico.
You'll see my cats a lot on my pages. They're so dang cute!
Aww, who's that cute boy? And look, more Studio Calico. ;)
There's a pretty funny story here, involving last summer's trip to CHA with the store...you should ask me about it next time we run into each other!
Ok then, enough from me! Before I go, I'd just like to say how great it is working with a group of talented ladies, both on the design team and at the store -- Scrappy Chic just rocks all the way around!
