A Splash Here and There. Melody was a Wednesday Winner back in September with this project:
Let's find out more about Melody's paper crafting!
1. When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?
I started scrapbooking in highschool as a way of preserving some pictures and newspaper clippings of my favorite football team, the 49ers! I was OBSESSED - I mean every picture I could find I clipped and preserved, even running back Roger Craig's towel ad (anybody remember that? LOL!). But then college happened and I had to downsize so I had to give my 49ers albums away :(
2. What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)?
Lately I have been making more cards than scrapbooks pages - sadly I am 3 years behind on LOs. I like the instant gratification of making a card but I do hope that one year from now I won't be saying I'm 4 years behind on scrapping my family's memories.
3. What is your favorite product to use on your projects?
My Cricut of course! I own way too many cartridges and there are ones that I HAD to have but never used. I also like using cuttlebug folders to enhance the cricut cuts.
4. What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?
Oh, wow! Let's see....I seem to be leaning towards the Cricut Circle exclusive cartridge Sophie at the moment - love the card features on this one.
5. What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?
I'm busy being a taxi driver to my 2 kids! I'm putting a lot of milleage in my minivan driving them after school to taekwondo, basketball, swimming and piano classes. Other times you can probably find me in the Cricut Message Boards chatting away when I should be doing housework :)
Any other information you would like us to know about you?
I'd like to thank the FCCB for choosing me to be spotlighted today - it's an honor. I have been a gawker of the many talented DT members on here for quite some time and I hope to enter more of the challenges on here.
I love how Melody ran ribbon through the left side of these cards. She has a detailed explanation on her blog of how she did this using her Gypsy.
