We asked each team member to answer the following questions and this is what Stacey had to say:

What is your scrapbooking style?
I always struggle with this question.  I guess you can call my style "Paper Musing."  It changes according to the product I am working with.  I take direction from the sayings, patterns and shapes of what is in front of me.  Most of my layouts have clean lines with a twist or unexpected element.  I love to cluster embellishments, use some white space, and stick with a theme.  Journaling is a must for me.
How did you start scrapbooking?
I think I started back in high school when I decorated the inside of my cheerleading megaphone.  I was also the Sports Editor of my yearbook committee so I think the love for design was always present.  I discovered personal scrapbooking about ten years ago after attending a scrapbooking party with some friends.

What influences your designs?
The product always drives me in a certain direction.  I love to cut unique embellishments or use an element in an innovative way.  I have to say that the biggest influence is the story I am telling.  It helps me decide on the overall them and tone of my layout.
How long do you spend working on a layout?
Anywhere from 1-3 hours.  I have gotten speedier over the years.

What does your work area look like while you are working on a project? Clean and organized? Messy and all over the place?
It looks like a bomb went off.  It always starts out neat, but it gets destroyed once I start creating.  I never throw things out as I go so you will find the backs of foam squares and randoms scraps everywhere.

What is your favorite color combination?
Something with a touch of orange or yellow.  I don't think I have a favorite combo, but just need a punch of color somewhere.  I prefer brights over muted.

Do you have any other hobbies?
When I am not working and/or being a mom and wife, I scrap.  There is not time for much else!  
Now here is a great notebook that Stacey created using the Sports Edition II collection. This is what Stacey has to say about this project:
I thought it would be cool to create a notebook to track your fitness program!  I was totally inspired after seeing all the word phrases and the sports sayings that are present throughout this entire line!  I made a different tab for each area.
