Spotlight Sunday

Welcome to Spotlight Sunday! We are so glad you're here!


Today's talented spotlight is on Kimberly of Paper Munch . Kimberly wowed the DT and got a top 5 spot with this project...






If you hop around Kimberly's blog you'll find awesome projects like these...











Along with her super cute creations Kimberly is gem. Let's get to know her a little better...



 When did you start scrapbooking/paper crafting and why?
 
My first introduction to scrap-booking was in 1992 when I went to a Creative Memories party. Like everyone else back then, all my pages were matted pictures with triangles, stickers and swirls. I have thought about redoing them, but I love looking back to see how far I have grown with this craft. 
 
I took a long break when my daughter was growing up (15 years), as I was too busy with Cheerleading, swimming and all the sports she took. Now that she has grown I have found my love for it again. I have only recently started with cards (6 months), but I love how quick you can put one together. The reason I paper craft is to relax at the end of the day and to mark significant events that have happened in our lives.

 What is your favorite type of project to make (i.e., cards, layouts, mini-albums, etc....)?

I love making cards for friends and scrapbooking for my family. I haven't completed a mini album, but I have tried a couple of 3D items. My goals are to branch out a bit more and do a mini album... a sloppy one where you slap a bunch of things down but in the end it looks amazing.

 What is your favorite product to use on your projects?

Right now I have been playing around with Copics and I Viva glass and pearl pens, so easy to use and they look like little beads (I used the red one on tomorrow's card).

What is your favorite Cricut cartridge?

That is easy, right now I love my Close to My Heart Art Philosophy cart!!! You can stamp and cut, tags, boxes, cards... everything.

What do you do in your spare time, when you are not paper crafting?

I love to travel, read, crochet, spending time with my friends and family (if my nineteen year old will spend anytime with me... hahaha).  Any spare time I have you can usually find me in my craft room!!!

Any other information you would like us to know about you?

So... a bit about my self - well my name is Kimberly Clark - yes just like the toilet paper company!!! When I was born my mom actually wrote the company to see if we could get a discount. I guess it was the beggining of my sale and freebie obsession! 
 
I am a mother of a 19yr old daughter, whom I have completely raised on my own, and I must say didn't do to bad ~lol. She is great only a little bit of attitude and sauciness... but I think that all children have that in them. Four years ago I moved to Hamilton Ontario (city of waterfalls) to purchase my own home. I love to scrapbook , read and according to my daughter I am a work-a-holic. I love my job... which I hear that is rare for most people!
 
I consider myself still new to the scrapping world and learning daily. I would say that I haven't completely found my style - I know that I enjoy the cutesy and a clean and simple style. I haven't tried the grunge or flourishly looks. I have also just started to have my embellishments pop off the page previously I was only a flat girl!! Boy have I grown within the past 6months... The other thing you will find out about me - I don't go in order .... so you will watch my daughter grow up over and over again... lol.
 
What inspires me... a picture, a paper, a sketch... just about everything. I even grab ads in the paper that catch my eye and post them all over my scraproom.
 
 
 
Thanks Kimberly! I hope you have enjoyed getting to know Kimberly of Paper Munch, and you should hop over to her blog for some more craftiness. Join us tomorrow when Kimberly and the DT put up some awesome inspirations for Challenge Me Monday.
 
 
Be blessed, Beckie
