I would describe my style as clean line scrapbooking with attention to detail.
How did you start scrapbooking?
I remember receiving a Creative Memories scrapbook from my neighbor at my high school graduation open house. It must have sat on a bookcase for about two years before I picked it up again. My college friends and I would tape photos of ourselves in the book and write funny comments on construction paper to remember good (and crazy) memories. It was not until 2006 when a girlfriend of mine reintroduced me to “scrapbooking” so that we could document our children’s lives.
What influences your designs?
Anything; everything. This is going to sound crazy but I was once in a public restroom when the pattern of the tile on the wall caught my eye and I KNEW it would make a great page design! Needless to say I had to take a photo of it with my iPhone.
How long do you spend working on a layout?
It can be anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour plus; I normally sketch out all of my layouts prior to pulling photos or paper. If I have sketched the design prior, a layout can come together very quickly for me. If I don’t have a design in mind ahead of time, I can spend WAY too much time moving items around on the page before settling on the final product (I can be overly critical of myself).
What does your work area look like while you are working on a project? Clean and organized? Messy and all over the place?
Organized by not always clean. I create best in my studio when everything is labeled and easy to find. I have a label maker addiction but am currently seeking professional help.
What is your favorite color combination?
Black, White and Tiffany Blue.
Do you have any other hobbies?
Jeepin’ or doing something outdoors with my handsome husband and our little guy, watching chick flicks (or my DVR’d TV shows) or reading murder mysteries.
Brianne made this adorable project with the TC line “On the Edge” and the coordinating Core’dinations line.
