Teresa Collins Design Team - Getting to know Maridette Cachola

We are very excited for you to get to know Maridette Cachola. We asked her some questions so you could get better. This is what she had to say:    

Maridette Cachola
What's my Scrapbooking style? 
Not quite sure what you call it.  For one thing it is definitely girly.  I love damask, crowns, bling, chandelier,velvety textures, glitter get the idea.  Mini books are my first love- the chunkier the better.  When I create mini books I love creating them with interactive pages with tags, journaling cards and pockets.  I also mix it up with the versatility of digital scrapbooking...HYBRID scrapbooking.  Once I learned the digi aspect of my craft it opened up a whole new world.  It created an endless possibility in my work.

How did you start scrapbooking?
I started in high school.  I created this 3 ring 8 1/2 x 11 album that's filled with dance pictures, friends, hanging out, memorabilia, concert tickets, confetti and words that are cut out from magazines.  I became a "serious" scrapbooker once my daughter was born.  I wanted to preserve our familys' memories so she may look back and know why she is who she is.

What influences your designs?
Scrapbooking products along with my photos influence how I design my projects.  I love the inspiration from  other crafters whether it be in magazines or scrapbooking websites.  Photography, home designs magazines, clothing and furniture stores also have a big part of my creative process.

How long does it take to do a layout?
It takes about 2-3 hours to do a layout and longer for mini book.

What does your work area look like when you are working on a project?
My craft table does get messy but not too messy!

What is your favorite color combination? 
Pink and black, pink,grey and white, yellow, orange and blues.

Do you have any other hobbies?  

My other passion is Photography.  Love, love it!  I love shopping whether it be for clothes, home decor and of course scrapbooking products.  I also love decorating my home.
