April's S.W.A.T Girl!!
Being invited to be featured on the S.W.A.T. blog was a big honor!!! I am so excited to share a little about me and a couple of my favorite projects with you. So here we go...I am known on line as by belle but my name is Michele. I am from Michigan and I am on the design teams for CropChocolate.com and Scrappy Chic. Here are a couple of questions the girls at S.W.A.T. asked...
1. How long have you been scrapping and why do you love it?
I have been scrapping as long as I can remember... I have ALWAYS loved making stuff. When I was young is was cards and that has been my staple but a couple of years ago I really LOVED altered items and home decor. Layouts are my latest obsession and I really want to learn more about minis. I have to be creating all the time! It is a huge part of who I am! It relaxes me and I just LOVE being in my scrappy space cutting, stamping, folding, inking...
2. What are you favorite tools and manufactures?
My favorite tools are my Big Shot and my punches. I use them all of the time on most project but really I don't think there isn't a tool that I don't like or won't use.
I have different favorite manufactures for different items...paper-MME, stamps-Viva Las Vegastamps!, tinkets and dies-Tim Holtz and my most recent favorite for chipboard pieces and shapes-Um Wow Studio.
3. How do you usually get started with a layout?
First I like to have an idea of the design of the layout I want to do. Then I pick the picture(s) and next the paper. All the rest just falls into place once I get started.
So, thanks so much for visiting today, I hope you will come back and enter the challenges posted here at S.W.A.T.
Here are a couple of my favorite projects, I hope you like them.
